Assessing the tradecraft of intelligence analysis by Gregory F Treverton( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report assesses intelligence analysis across the main U.S. intelligence agencies and makes a number of recommendations, some of which parallel initiatives that have begun in the wake of the December 2004 legislation, for instance, create a Deputy Director of National Intelligence as a focal point for analysis, establish a National Intelligence University, build a Long Term Analysis Unit at the National Intelligence Council, and form an Open Source Center for making more creative use of open-source materials
Space : emerging options for national power by Dana J Johnson( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of a study that examined the extent to which both military and economic spacepower will influence national security strategy and the conduct of future military operations. It attempts to articulate the key military space policy issues facing the United States and place them in the larger context of a changing strategic environment to define new options for the exercise of spacepower in the pursuit of national interests. The proliferation of military space forces from the Cold War to the present can be seen in the increasing capabilities of these forces and the expanding roles they are expected to play in future missions. Space forces will be expected to perform an array of space-related functions, including early warning and integrated tactical warning and attack assessment, weather/environmental monitoring, satellite communications, surveillance and reconnaissance, navigation and positioning, space control, and, possibly, ballistic missile defense and force application

Emerging markets of the information age : a case study in remote sensing data and technology by C. Bryan Gabbard( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High-resolution imagery data and technology are among the products that may have a dramatic effect on international, foreign policy, commercial, and security issues in the information age. U.S. firms, under a 1994 Presidential Decision Directive, are allowed to compete for a growing international marketplace in remote sensing products, in which they hold a distinct technological lead due to decades of investment by the U.S. government. This CIRA documented briefing presents an in-progress report for research on the marketplace dynamics, including government-industry relations, the strategies of U.S. firms and other entities entering this arena, and international perspectives on and activities in the market. This DB also includes a brief tutorial on remote sensing, including the dual-use nature of remote sensing data and technology
An Assessment of Defense Nuclear Agency functions : pathways toward a new nuclear infrastructure for the nation by Richard O Hundley( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report evaluates options for carrying out functions of the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA). Options proposed were transferring DNA's functions to individual services and the Advanced Research Project Agency; maintaining DNA as a separate agency tailored to today's security environment; transferring functions to the Department of Energy weapons laboratories; combining any of these options; or reorganizing DNA to reduce costs significantly. The report argues that DNA's functions must be assessed in the framework of the national nuclear infrastructure and identifies three continuing requirements with respect to nuclear weapons: caring for the nuclear stockpile, maintaining a capability to understand and deal with the use of nuclear weapons, and reducing the threat of nuclear weapons. DNA performs these functions and a fourth pertaining to conventional technologies. The report concludes that no single agency could accomplish all DNA's functions without incurring substantial risk. Functions could be spread across services and other agencies, but that approach exacerbates an unwise trend toward fragmentation. No option promises significant cost savings. The larger concern is the national infrastructure, which could be consolidated to counter the effects of fragmentation
