New DSB report - COIN & ISR Ops

The Defense Science Board has posted its latest report -- 

From the intro memo....."The report includes detailed observations and provides nine significant findings and associated  recommendations. Underlying the study's key findings is the multi-phase challenger where counter-terrorism, contingency operations (force-on-force hostilities), and COIN may be occurring simultaneously, driving disparate and sometime conflicting collection strategies on limited ISR resources. The study looked at ISR uniquely developed for Afghanistan to balance against ISR suited for other emerging COIN environments so the U.S. could prepare for the future."
