Abstract : This Futures Report offers Department of the Army (DA) and Department of Defense (DOD) planners, decisionmakers, and policymakers useful ways to describe and examine alternative futures. The report provides methods to project trends or events into the long-range future while retaining their plausibility. Additionally, it presents possible alternative conditions, trends and events that are likely to influence and challenge future defense postures. Finally, the report introduces a plausible framework for considering common future world environments in midrange and long-range planning.
