For 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; force modernization and employment; manpower, personnel, and training; and resource management. This report offers highlights from PAF's 2008 efforts, which addressed such key issues as deterring nuclear-armed regional adversaries; modernizing the aging air mobility fleet; controlling cost growth in Air Force acquisition programs; developing future Air Force leaders; conducting intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations in dynamic environments; using the Air National Guard to help trim force size without losing pilot power; and keeping military conflicts from escalating beyond control.
