The subject of analytical support for defense planning is discussed. Since World War II, an important development in defense planning has been the generation and use of new techniques for the systematic examination of alternative proposals for future military systems and forces, which is called systems analysis. The context of this analysis is usually such that the time horizon is not the present, but rather some 5, 10, or even 15 years into the future. This means that the focus is not so much upon operational types of questions instead it is upon development and procurement decisions.
