Enactment of the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act of 1986 refocused DoD military system acquisition efforts on the military requirements of operating forces. The Commanders-in-Chief of the Unified and Specified Commands have significant responsibilities for the development and establishment of requirements for future military systems. These requirements are to be met by the Military Services and other DoD Components. These requirements may focus on broad capabilities to be achieved by strategic nuclear forces, ground forces, naval forces, tactical air forces, and Special Operations Forces. They may also be viewed from a functional perspective to include training, communications, intelligence, maintenance and logistics, arms control, and even defense conversion and dual-use functions. The DoD Information Analysis Centers IAC Program oversees 23 IACs and sponsors 15 contractor operated IACs. The volume describes work completed by DoD IACs over the past 24 months relevant to forces operated by the Unified and Specified Commands within a framework of forces, roles and missions, or DoD functions.
