The RAND National Security Research Division (NSRD) addresses a wide variety of issues at the top of the national and international security policy agenda. In addition to a general survey of NSRD work in 2005, this annual report highlights a study of the U.S. role in developing Iraq’s security sector; several studies on U.S. carriers, including one on carrier air power and another on the most cost-effective way to modernize the carrier fleet; analyses of cross-country variation in technology trends and of Russia’s progress in information technology; reports on the effect of deployment on service members and on reservists’ earnings; suggestions for reshaping the U.S. intelligence services; an assessment of China’s system of export controls for WMD-related goods and technologies; and a study on building a successful Palestinian state. Also includes a list of NSRD publications for 2005.
