CAA Mission


Dr. William F. Crain
Center for Army Analysis
United States Army
Washington, DC




Mission of CAA is to conduct analyses of Army forces and systems in the context of joint and combined warfighting.  The CAA provides analytical studies focusing on theater-level, Joint and combined operations, and Army-wide processes providing required Army forces and systems.  These studies help senior Army leadership, the Army Staff, and operational commanders address transformation, programming and budgeting, and operational issues.  Full-time analysts are deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, providing operations research and analysis support to senior commanders.  CAA further supports deployed forces with more sophisticated operations research and analytical capabilities through its real-time reach back operations at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.  Making the Army Vision Reality, the CAA has helped shape modernization, Reset, and transformation strategies; base realignment and stationing decisions; and resource allocation issues; thereby saving taxpayer dollars and enhancing force efficiency.
