Ukraine: Success Demands A New Approach

Ukraine: Success Demands A New Approach

July 12, 2022

The Mitchell Institute invites you to listen to our virtual Aerospace Nation on with Evelyn N. Farkas, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia; Bryan Clark, Senior Fellow and Director of Center for Defense Concepts and Technology, Hudson Institute; Seth Jones, Senior Vice President, Harold Brown Chair, and Director of International Security Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS); and Heather Penney, Senior Fellow for Airpower Studies, Mitchell Institute.

The early success Ukrainian forces enjoyed over invading Russian units in the Kyiv region is now giving way to brutal, incremental territorial losses elsewhere in the country. Putin may be paying a steep price for these advances, but he’s ultimately locking in desired conquests. It’s time for the US and the coalition partners to change their approach when it comes to the scale and scope of military capabilities they are providing Ukraine—especially when it comes to airpower. Failing to pursue this course risks allowing Russia to cement its gains. This portends a dangerous precedent in Europe and around the globe writ large—including lessons China may garner from the conflict. The risk calculus must change from “What happens if we provide certain types of support?” to “What happens if we don’t?” Moderated by Lt Gen David A. Deptula, USAF (Ret.), Dean, Mitchell Institute.

June 7, 2022

The Mitchell Institute invites you to listen to our rollout for our newest policy paper: Orbital Vigilance: The Need for Enhanced Space-Based Missile Warning and Tracking by Christopher Stone, Senior Fellow for Space Studies, The Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies.

For decades, U.S. space-based missile warning and ground based radars have provided our nation’s leaders with early warning of missile threats at home and abroad. Now that our adversaries have begun to field and use hypersonic and maneuvering missile systems, it is crucial to ensure we can detect an track these threats. This demands new solutions.

Gen Kevin P. Chilton, USAF (Ret.), Explorer Chair of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies and former STRATCOM commander; Colonel Miguel A. Cruz, Commander of Delta 4, the Missile Warning command of the U.S. Space Force; Dr. Davin Swanson, Chief Engineer in Space and C2 Systems, Raytheon Intelligence and Space; and Christopher Stone will discuss why DOD must adopt a new force design that multiple satellites across different orbital regimes to maintain a continuous chain of custody of these new threats, and cue missile defenses.
