The character of military competition in the air domain is rapidly changing, largely due to the growing sophistication of long-range strike systems, increasing detection capabilities of stealth technologies, and trends in instrumentation and passive detection infrastructure development. These factors are potentially increasing the vulnerability of air operations for the US and other nations that rely on airpower. Moreover, the current US superiority in air warfare could be impacted as the character of the air domain evolves.
