The aim is to describe the key features that made Slovakias approach unique and that could in a general sense inspire planners of other countries. A very important step was an independent external defense assessment and defense review conducted by US and NATO teams. The subsequent assistance of Cubic Applications, Inc. CAI in the long term planning process was also critical. The output of the long term planning process was a set of strategic documents that included The Military Strategy Of The Slovak Republic, The Organizational Structure Of The Ministry Of Defense Of The Slovak Republic, The Armed Forces Of The Slovak Republic - Model 2010 and The Long-term Plan of Structure and Development of the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic.
