Traditional military targeting of integrated air defense systems predominantly used lethal methods. In today's political climate, and technological advances associated with these systems, traditional lethal targeting of integrated air defense systems has been severely limited. This paper proposes using sociolinguistic network analysis to identify key links and nodes within an integrated air defense system for the more efficient non-lethal targeting of these systems. This paper analyzes the differences between traditional non-lethal targeting methodology and the proposed methodology in this paper. Lastly, this paper explores the inherent efficiencies and possible future applications of these methodologies.
