This report examines alternative methods for detection of explosives in commercial aviation. The report s primary conclusion is thatthere does not appear to be any single detection technology that can provide the levels of sensitivity and specificity that will have both a significant effect on reducing the threat and an acceptable impact on airport operations. The report analyzes a number of detec......

The U.S. Air Force is grappling with the challenge of aging fleets and when it might be optimal to replace those fleets. This monograph examines commercial aviation data with the goal of drawing inferences and lessons about aging aircraft that may be relevant to the Air Force. It focuses on “aging effects” — i.e., how commercial aircraft maintenance costs change as aircraft grow ......

The Air Force and Air Force Space Command need an official implementation plan to integrate space into air operations or they might founder in this third attempt to transition to an air and space force. The historical precedent established during the integration of aviation into the US Navy from 1921 to 1941 suggests the policy areas essential to successful integration. The Air Force has initiated......
