This thesis investigates how an air component commander integrates air-to-ground target identification criteria into combat air operations. The analytical methodology of the thesis begins by developing common attributes of effective criteria. It then uses these common attributes as a framework for comparing two different paradigms for articulating rules of engagement in this area. The first is the "positive identification" approach, indicative of recent air operations and exercises. The second paradigm, developed by the author, is one in which a commander communicates weapons system-specific criteria for each tasked target. The author has drawn upon official doctrine, personal interviews, a survey, and unclassified written documents as source material for the thesis. The thesis concludes that there should be a fundamental shift in how air commanders integrate air-to-ground target identification criteria into combat air operations. Communicating weapons system-specific criteria for each tasked target is more advantageous than using an over-arching criterion, such as "positive identification." Target-specific criteria allow a tasking commander to communicate and manage risk better based on such factors as mission priority, capabilities of delivery platforms, and the potential for collateral damage or fratricide. Furthermore, the existing air tasking order process, with minor modifications, can effectively support this approach.
