Project Air Force

Project Air Force is a program started by the corporation RAND that provides analaysis of issues of concern for the Department of the Air Force leaders.

RAND's Project Air Force was started to conduct analysis on issues of concern to the Department of the Air Force leaders. They work to address the questions:

  • What will be the role of air and space power in the future security environment?
  • How should the force be modernized to meet changing operational demands?
  • What should be the size and characteristics of the department's work force, and how can that work force be most effectively recruited, trained, and retained?
  • How should sustainment, acquisition, and infrastructure be streamlined to control costs?

These questions and the Department of the Air Force's need to analytic support has led to the establishment of four research programs representing Project Air Force's core capabilities:

  • Strategy and Doctrine
  • Force Modernization and Employment
  • Manpower, Personnel, and Training
  • Resource Management

Originally started as Project RAND, Project Air Force was established in 1946 by General H.H. Arnold as a way of retaining the benefits of civilian scientific thinking demonstrated during World War II. Project Air Force remains the only Department of the Air Force federally funded research and development center concerned with studies and analyses rather than systems engineering or scientific laboratories.

The pandemic barely dented the financial outlook for some major networks, which continued to acquire weaker hospitals and ailing doctors' practices. Critics worry consolidation leads to higher prices for medical care.

About 42% of rural school districts in the U.S. offered fully in-person instruction as of February, compared with only 17% for urban districts, according to a new RAND Corporation survey of school district leaders. The opposite pattern held for fully remote learning: 29% of urban districts offered fully remote instruction compared with 10% of rural districts and 18% of suburban districts.
