This report has been prepared in response to a query regarding the purported use of witchcraft, sorcery, and magic by insurgent elements in the Republic of the Congo (Leopoldville). Magical practices are said to be effective in conditioning dissident elements and their followers to do battle with Government troops. Rebel tribesmen seen to have been persuaded that they can be made magically impervious to Congolese army firepower. Their fear of Government forces was diminished and, conversely,...

The Red Army learned and practice the art of deception at all levels of warfare during World War II. By cloaking various force groupings and activities, Soviet military leadership, particularly in the latter stages of the war, created operational-level deceptions that surprised German intelligence and commanders. Through their empirically structured military science, Soviet researchers and doctrine writers have applied deception to the tactical, operational and strategic levels of war. While...

Unrestricted Warfare is neither a revolution in military thought nor an executable doctrine for future warfare, but a collection of tactics, techniques, and procedures that have been used throughout history and will continue to be used by future adversaries. In February 1999, two Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) senior Air Force colonels, Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, published Unrestricted Warfare. This paper critically analyzes the concept of Unrestricted Warfare as it relates to future...

This handbook discusses the design requirements applicable to Army helicopters for all missions under visual flight rule (VFR) operation, day or night. As such, the scope of this document has been limited to cover the basic aerial vehicles. Design requirements for mission-essential equipment--e.g., weapons, sensors, cargo-handling equipment--are beyond this scope and are not discussed, although the helicopter-integral interface requirements for such equipment are included.

The analysis of store separation by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques holds great promise for reducing aircraft-store certification testing. The primary concern with CFD application is the question of accuracy. This question of how much confidence should be placed on CFD generated loads data and trajectories is addressed using an uncertainty analysis technique. The process requires a formalized approach to evaluating the uncertainty associated with CFD produced loads data. This is...

Fundamental reforms in central government organization and policy, the operations of defense enterprises, and the flow of international capital reveal a new paradigm on the part of the Chinese leadership. As a result of these changes, the historical critique of China's defense industry as clogged with redundancy and inefficiency, and lacking access to capital and advanced technology is no longer accurate....

Divergence experienced during rolling maneuvers has frequently been referred to as inertial coupling. This leads to a misconception of the problems involved. The divergence experienced during rolling maneuvers is complex because it involves not only inertial properties, but aerodynamic ones as well. The material in this chapter is intended to offer a physical explanation of the more important causes of roll coupling. Coupling results when a disturbance about one aircraft axis causes a...

The People's Republic of China is in the midst of a far-reaching military modernization program. Modernization of the PLA Navy, an arm of the People's Liberation Army, is a part of this effort. The PLA Navy seeks control of local seas. This has both short- and long-term political implications for the region and for the United States. The United States cannot prevent a sovereign power from building a modern defense force, but it can maintain the military balance and peace in the region by...

Navigation and terrain familiarity are critical for mission success in the military. Virtual environments (VEs) have often been suggested as a useful tool in addressing these issues. This thesis research addresses the utility of VEs to improve spatial knowledge of and navigation performance through natural terrain compared to traditional methods. In this experiment, fifteen subjects were assigned to one of three training conditions. The map group studied the environment using only an...

This report presents the work performed under ONR contract number N00014-85-K-0733 during the period 1985-1990. The main objective of the project was to develop a computational facility for inelastic analysis of fibrous composite materials based on micromechanics. The theoretical work focused on development of micromechanical models for thermoplastic and thermoviscoplastic fibrous composites based on experimental observations of certain phenomena found in unreinforced and fiber reinforced...

The capabilities of the infantry rifle were explored. Data wer e obtained on the frequency and distance by which riflemen missed targets, and the distribution of hits at different ranges; the ranges of engagement in battle; and the physiological wound effects of shots with differing ballistic characteristics. A study of the data led to the following conclusions: (1) Hit effectiveness with the M-1 rifle is satisfactory only up to 100 yds. and declines rapidly to low order at 300 yds., the...

The purpose of this manual is to provide recovery system engineers in government and industry with tools to evaluate, analyze, select, and design parachute recovery systems. These systems range from simple, one-parachute assemblies to multiple-parachute systems, and may include equipment for impact attenuation, flotation, location, retrieval, and disposition. All system aspects are discussed, including the need for parachute recovery, the selection of the most suitable recovery system concept,...
