2025 is a study designed to comply with a directive from the chief of staff
of the Air Force to examine the concepts, capabilities, and technologies the
United States will require to remain the dominant air and space force in the
future. Presented on 17 June 1996, this report was produced in the Department
of Defense school environment of academic freedom and in the interest of advancing
concepts related to national defense. The views expressed in this report are those
of the authors and do not reflect the official policy or position of the United States
Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States government.

From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale
tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications
and counter-space control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range
of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary.  But, while offensive weather
modification efforts would certainly be undertaken by US forces with great caution
and trepidation, it is clear that we cannot afford to allow an adversary to obtain
an exclusive weather-modification capability.


Best Regards,
