Abstract : This report documents an alternative methodology for measuring improvement of tactical forces in the air-to-surface role. Two techniques for assessing improvement in tactical forces, currently being used by various government agencies, are reviewed and found to be limited. This report discussed the weaknesses of those methods and proposes an alternative methodology which removes most of their limitations. For this alternative methodology, this proposal identifies appropriate measures of merit, suggests sources for all requisite data, and reviews computer programs capable of manipulating the data. Included is a sample graphic which could be used for depicting results.
