Air power has been an element of military power for just over a century. However, its ability to project power as part of a nation's quest for security and protection has now been acknowledged as second to no other element of national power. Air power's efficacy has been demonstrated time and again in the past few decades. Technology is the fundamental factor around which the development, application and sustainment of air power is built. This fundamental fact will hold true for the future.
