Abstract : This report, titled Open Scenario Study, Phase Two Report: Assessment and Development of Approaches for Satisfying Unclassified Scenario Needs explores elements of an approach that may be used to satisfy the national security community's demand for unclassified scenarios. In this report, the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) explores four major elements that any Department of Defense (DoD) approach to meeting unclassified scenario demand could include: 1) an online open scenario repository, 2) the certification of existing unclassified scenarios, 3) development of new unclassified scenarios, and 4) the declassification of classified scenarios. IDA examines each of these elements independently and in combination and ultimately concludes that the national security community's demand for unclassified scenarios could best be met by using variations of several of the elements in combination with one another. This report also highlights major findings from Phase Two of IDA's Open Scenario Study and offers the a recommended approach for better addressing the need for unclassified scenarios.
