Desert Storm provided a renewed interest in planning air campaigns. The Air Campaign Planning Tool (ACPT), a combined HQ USAF/XOOC and ARPA initiative, provides a modern computer based planning tool to the JFACC's war planning staff.1 ACSC research project 95-034 provided three enhancements to the development of the first operational version of ACPT. First, an air campaign Historical Reference Library (HRL) was created and included in the real world ACPT, to provide the air campaign planner with a on-line, easy to use reference of past air campaigns from the perspective of a 1990s airpower planner. Secondly, an unclassified, ACPT Tutorial was created for simultaneous release with the next version ofACPT this summer. Finally, the level of ACSC student exposure to ACPT was increased by expanding ACPT use during the ACES DRAGON exercise to over 50 students, demonstrating ACPT to 50 ACSC faculty and many senior officers at both Air University's 1994 Air and Space Symposium and CADRE'S 1995 JFACC Symposium.
