11 Basic idea● Cross-domain synergy● Operational Access Precepts ・ Gain access to requirements and broader mission ・ Prepare the operational area in advance ・ Consider a variety of basing options ・ Seize the initiative through multiple and independent operations ・ Gain advantage in one or more domains, disruptingadversaries’ A2/AD efforts ・ Disrupting reconnaissance and surveillance of adversaries ・ Create pockets of local domain superiority for penetration ・ Maneuver directly toward key objective from strategic distance ・ Attack enemy’s A2/AD defense in depth ・ Maximize surprise ・ Protect space and cyber capabilities while attacking enemy’s

16 Purpose and Characer of ASBPurpose・ Maintain U.S. access to the global commons・ keep the power projection capability, maintain freedom ofmission under A2/AD environmentCharacter・ NOT a strategy, or a doctrine・ A limited operational concept・ NOT a concept aimed at any particular potential adversary・ NOT a new concept, but an advanced joint operation conceptusing cross-domain operations

25 Challenges or problems about ASBC in the U.S. military・ There is a possibility that the Air-Sea Battle Conceptcould suffer from the negative effects of parochialism.・ ASBC may not be given top priority, concerns overits probability.・ Develop more high-level “jointness”
26 Importance of ASBC in the Western PacificThe Western Pacific Geostrategic Considerations1 The main operational area is air and sea2 The U.S. military does limited strategic depth.3 The distance between the U.S. mainland and the Western Pacific is very far.4 There are countries with A2/AD capability5 Most of U.S. forward bases and allies’ bases are in range of potential adversaryballistic missiles ・ The Western Pacific is one of the regions where an adversary can establish an A2/AD environment with relative ease. Japan is located between mainland of Asia and the US. Japan has bilateral operation capability. ・ Japan-US Cooperation is important
27 Influence of defense budget cut on ASBC4 scenarios of defense budget cutScenario Reduction Influence and analysis $350 ～ U.S. military remains capable of addressing a wide range of possible threats around the world by pursuing “High-Low-New” modernization 1 $400 plan. billion The risks are modest and acceptable $500 ～ Under a reduced capability, U .S. military can manage its global mission. 2 $550 But U.S. has to prioritize regions billion The risks are significant but acceptable $650 ～ U.S. military reduce forward maritime presence. U.S. can maintain it’s presence only in selected regions (Western Pacific, Indian Ocean, 3 $700 Middle East, Arabian Gulf) billion The risks are high $800 ～ U.S. has to alter global engagement strategy significantly. U.S. can protect its interests only in Asia and Middle East. But Asian allies and 4 $850 partners question the credibility of U.S. security guarantees. billion The risks are very high Reference: Hard Choice by center for New American Security

29Challenges for Japan-U.S. defense cooperation under ASBCPolicy Level・ Japan should support the Air-Sea Battle Concept, and sharethe burden as much as possible.・ Japan should be more involved in the implementation processand share the contents to the National Defense ProgramGuideline and the Mid-Term Defense Program with US in atimely manner.
30Challenges for Japan-U.S. defense cooperation under ASBCPolicy Level・ Japan has to build the foundation of executing Air-Sea Battle operations. - Build the political and legal framework which enables Japan to execute the use of force out of Japanese territory. - Strengthen Japan-US bilateral operational capability.・ Execute Air-Sea Battle operations in the Western pacific with other US allies andpartners is important.・ The Jieitai has to develop jointness and overcome the parochialism among itsthree services.
31Challenges for Japan-U.S. defense cooperation under ASBCTactical Level Category Japan-US military Cooperation ・ Establish network system to share situational awareness Networked of cross-domain operation. ・ Establish real time communication system among headquarters Integrated and all domain assets. ・ Prepare all kinds of scenarios and exercises Disrupt ・ Promote cooperation in the cyber field. Attack ・ Maintain mission flexibility (Japan should strengthen an Destroyin-depth attack capability ) ・ Increase the reliability and operational capability of Defeat missile defense. ・ Increase survivability of the bases
32 Conclusion・ ASBC is necessary for the US to rebalance toward the Asia-Pacificregion.・ To execute ASB operations in the Western Pacific, Japan-U.S. cooperation is necessary.・ To execute cooperation successfully, the Jieitai will have to overcome its challenges.・ The Jieitais operational performance will improve dramatically.・ Japan-US cooperation under the Air-Sea battle Concept will be a greatdeterrence to adversaries in the Asia-Pacific region
