Abstract:

The RAND National Security Research Division NSRD is well placed to aid DoDs leadership in exploring options for guiding the evolution of force structures to meet threats while recognizing economic constraints. NSRDs federally funded research and development center FFRDC, the National Defense Research Institute NDRI, has 28 years of experience supporting senior DoD decisionmakers through widely varying eras. Some aspects of the agenda--e.g., manpower and technology evaluation--go back even further at RAND. Recent or ongoing projects address such key elements of the new strategic guidance as security force assistance, long-range strike, and countering anti-accessarea denial practices. If stability campaigns give way to an emphasis on high-intensity expeditionary operations, NSRD can draw on a long institutional memory of analyses supporting such operations, both through NDRI and through RANDs two other FFRDCs. For example, current NDRI projects are helping DoD rethink global force postures, building on both past research and recent capabilities developed in other FFRDC projects. If some defense assets are to be reduced, NDRI can draw on past and current work on ways to manage a drawdown. This volume presents selected examples of projects recently completed or still in progress within each of NSRDs five research centers--plus RANDs International Programs
