DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
Developing an effective capability to protect the homeland is a top national priority. It is also a complex undertaking filled with many challenges. There are so many assets to protect, so many modes of attack available to adversaries, and so many organizations involved, that, understandably, both the conceptual thinking and the capabilities required are still immature. Maturing the conceptual framework and capabilities related to homeland security, the DSB believes, requires a holistic approach- a guiding theme for this study. The final report of this study consists of two volumes Volume I identifies capabilities and initiatives needed by DoD to fulfill its responsibilities to project force when directed and to protect the homeland. It focuses on those capabilities that depend upon DoD working closely with other agencies. In addition, opportunities are identified for DoD to export some of its core competencies to help accelerate the maturation of the many agencies involved in homeland security tasks. Volume II is a compilation of four sub-panel reports.
