Abstract : The fundamental mission of IDA was defined by the Secretary of Defense some thirty-six years ago: '... to provide comprehensive, objective, and independent analyses and evaluations . . . prepared by the ablest professional minds, and the most advanced analytical methods that can be brought to bear.' While the subject areas of vital interest to defense decision makers have changed and the tools of analysis have evolved in ways that were not conceived when the above words assigning IDA its mission were written, there remains the need for rigorously objective analytical support to the Defense Department and other government agencies. IDAs unique experience and ability in blending in-depth expertise in technology with strategic thinking enable us to provide relevant analysis in an environment of tighter budgets and changing national needs.
