The United States is increasingly concerned with its ability to project power and influence world events.1 A rapid change in various technologies and their integration into strategies used by adversaries of the United States complicates matters, leading to non-traditional challenges.2 Slower growth in the world economy has led to shrinking and static defense budgets not only for the United States, but for allies and adversaries as well. The change in strategic defense spending has steered defense investments in many areas including, but not limited to, basing, emerging technologies, future platforms, and force structure.3
