Report Release Webinar—Evaluate Like We Operate: Why DOD Should Evaluate Weapons Systems as Networked Force Packages, Not Individual Platforms
On September 20, CSBA held a webinar discussion on the release of our new report, Evaluate Like We Operate: Why DOD Should Evaluate Weapons Systems as Networked Force Packages, Not Individual Platforms, by Travis Sharp and Tyler Hacker.
On Tuesday, September 19, 2023, CSBA’s Katherine Kjellström Elgin and Eric Edelman will discuss forthcoming research that examines the future of the Russian military by analyzing the Russian military’s propensity to reform. Based off a study of history and characteristics of the Russian military, the research suggests that the Russian military that emerges after the war in Ukraine is unlikely to be a significantly different force than before. That does not mean that it will not be a threat – but because reform is only likely to occur under narrow conditions, the Russian military is unlikely to drastically reshape in the medium- to long-term. Instead, the Russian armed forces will likely look similar to the Russian armed forces we see today, even if there are major reform programs announced
