Summary

Summary

The report lays out a framework for modernizing that the Air Force can use to develop new operational concepts in the context of joint-service requirements, to organize analyses for assessing capabilities, and to effectively advocate Air Force programs to "deciders' in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and Congress. The work builds on earlier work on a strategies-to-tasks framework, concept development, and up-front planning.
