The force effects will beachieved through a combination of bothlethal and non-lethal means delivered eitherdirectly or indirectly. The effects are tailoredto meet the desired outcome in terms ofaccuracy, proportionality and costeffectiveness.Force Projection and ProtectionThe objective for NEW will be to projectthe appropriate level of force to achieve thedesired impact on the adversary.
