For nearly 60 years, RAND Project AIR FORCE (PAF) has offered an integrated program of objective, independent analysis on issues of enduring concern to Air Force leaders. Current research focuses on strategy and doctrine; aerospace force development; manpower, personnel, and training; and resource management. This report offers highlights from PAF’s efforts during 2004, which addressed such key issues as making Air Force strike operations less vulnerable to attack, the appropriate role of nuclear forces today, how to reduce costs, changes in the personnel mix, strengthening partnerships in Asia, and taking a strategic approach to combating terrorism.
