Since June of 1988, the Institute for Defense Analyses has been assisting the Department of Defense in developing a systematic process to estimate U.S. stockpile requirements for strategic and critical materials. This annotated briefing provides a capsule history of the National Defense Stockpile of strategic and critical non-fuel materials, a review of requirements planning studies prior to IDAs involvement, and a summary of the NDS requirements process IDA designed for DoD. A very brief profile of requirements study results-based upon IDAs requirements process-is also provided. References to more technical documents prepared under this IDA project are also given. For several years, IDA, and SFRD in particular, has been studying U.S. requirements for strategic and critical non-fuel materials in the context of the National Defense Stockpile, the NDS. Today, we would like to tell you about our specific project. Joining me to offer highlights of their work on the NDS-Sean Barnett, Elly Schwartz, and An-Jen Tai.
