Conditions of American intervention land operation of the 21st century in the reconnaissance aspect
The article presents technological conditions of changes in conducting future land operations in the American armed forces. After the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Europeans started to use fully the new peace. In the military aspect it meant armed forces reductions and limiting of the defence expenditures. Contrary to Europe, America followed a completely different route and continued the technological modification process of the armed forces. The disproportion in defence programmes funding lead to a technological gap between the United States forces and European armies. The new land operation concept of the US armed forces, apart from the technological advantage, assumes also a technological one. In the new war concept soldiers will be supported in attack by robots. Some new models of warrior robots have already been tested in Afghanistan. The Americans plan that in future, unmanned land vehicles will be able to deliver more reconnaissance information than current unmanned aerial reconnaissance vehicles commonly used in military operations nowadays. It is predicted that in the second decade of the 21st century a standard Future Combat System brigade will be ready to perform its tasks and it could be transported in C- 130 aircraft to any place in the world within 4 days in order to be deployed in a land intervention operation.
