Abstract : This report first justifies and then sets forth a handbook useful for producing Major COmmand (MAJCOM) Minimum Risk Forces and the USAF Planning Force. Both types of forces respond to Joint Chiefs of Staff tasking to forecast force requirements for meeting a future threat. These efforts are comprehensive and complex, spanning all current USAF mission areas as well as capabilities and missions not yet operational. The results of this year-long process are reviewed by the Air Force senior leadership including the Air Force Chief of Staff and the Secretary of the Air Force. Once approved, the Minimum Risk/Planning Force Handbook will be published by HQ USAF as an unclassified guide for constructing those forces.
