|Sponsor||Office of the Secretary of Defense (DoD)|
The objective is to advance understanding of the evolving requirements for U.S. extended deterrence in the 21st century, notably with regard to U.S. nuclear weapons. The issues include the evolving purposes of the U.S. nuclear force posture and security commitments to allies, questions of doctrine and declaratory policy, and the future of relevant international arms control regimes. The continuing proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and developments in Russia, China, and elsewhere are also of concern to the United States and its allies.
The Principal Investigator will conduct research and analysis on these issues. The research will include discussions with professional colleagues and analysis of published sources. In order to communicate findings about evolving post-Cold War extended deterrence policies and requirements, the Principal Investigator will develop a curriculum on extended deterrence. The PI will work in close cooperation with OSD Policy, OSD AT&L, and others, as appropriate. The Principal Investigator will submit reports on his research findings and on progress in curriculum development to the sponsor and brief the findings and curriculum development work as directed by the sponsor.
