Defense Strategy
After 10 years of war the United
States and our military are at a
strategic inflection point.
We do not have to choose between
fiscal responsibility and a strong
national defense.
The President has insisted that
reductions in defense spending be
driven by strategy.
Defense Strategy
Primary Missions of the U.S. Armed forces:
• Counter Terrorism and Irregular Warfare
• Deter and Defeat Aggression
• Project Power despite Anti-Access/Area
Denial Challenges
• Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction
• Operate Effectively in Cyberspace and
Space
• Maintain a Safe, Secure, and Effective
Nuclear Deterrent
• Defend the Homeland and Provide
Support to Civil Authorities
• Provide a Stabilizing Presence
• Conduct Stability and Counterinsurgency
Operations
• Conduct Humanitarian, Disaster Relief,
and Other Operations
UNCLASSIFIED
Defense Budget Priorities
Five Major tenets:
I. Rebalance force structure and investment
toward the Asia-Pacific and Middle East
regions while sustaining key alliances and
partnerships in other regions
II. Plan and size forces to be able to defeat a
major adversary in one theater while
denying aggression elsewhere or imposing
unacceptable costs
III. Protect key investments in the
technologically advanced capabilities most
needed for the future, including
countering anti-access threats
IV. No longer size active forces to conduct
large protracted stability operations while
retaining the expertise of a decade of war
V. To the extent possible, structure major
adjustments in a way that best allows for
their reversal or for regeneration…

ISR is a Stated Priority!

“Our
investments include a mix of manned and unmanned
airborne ISR systems as well as the accompanying
Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination capabilities
and supporting communications architectures. We continue
to pursue investments in airborne ISR capability, including
High-Definition ISR technology, and we rely heavily on the
Services to expand their capabilities and capacity that
benefit DoD across the board.”
