PAF Annual Reports
PAF annual reports highlight key research, examine national and international security issues, list recent publications, and introduce you to the people of Project AIR FORCE.
Since 2012, PAF has largely dispensed with the Annual Report format. For all of PAF's most recent work, see the list of current publications.
Project AIR FORCE research that has had a significant cost-saving effect on the operations of the U.S. military is included in RAND's Saving the Government Money report.
