RAND Arroyo Center's annual report describes the skills and abilities that have been carefully developed over its history with an eye on large, complex institutional problems that the Army is likely to face. While particular research streams have evolved over time, generic areas of substantive focus have remained largely intact and are reflected in Arroyo's four programs of research: Strategy, Doctrine, and Resources; Force Development and Technology; Military Logistics; and Manpower and Training. These programs, along with the specific research streams they maintain, support the four “imperatives” essential to restoring the Army's balance: sustain the Army's soldiers, families and civilians; prepare forces to succeed in the current conflict; reset units and rebuild readiness; and transform the Army to meet the demands of the 21st century.
