Abstract:

The research for this task was conducted by the Institute for Defense Analyses in fulfillment of the task entitled Frequency and Nature of Military Operations, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense Strategy and Requirements in support of the Quadrennial Defense Review QDR. Design of the research was also closely coordinated with the Office of Director Program Analysis and Evaluation, which used the results in support of its QDR-related work. The objectives of this work are to review historical records of U.S. military operations, and using that analysis, critique OSD assumptions on frequency, duration, size and nature of future military operations, and recommend how such data should be collected in the future and how a more accurate and useful database of past activity can be compiled.
