About the Deterrence Research Knowledge Center

The Deterrence Research Knowledge Center is a collaborative effort headed by Air University and supported by Air Force Global Strike Command, Headquarters Air Force A10, Air Force Institute of Technology, Air Force Research Laboratory, and the Air Force Academy. Its mission is to provide a timely source of contemporary research products and access to Air Force education classes and courses that support the continued development of strategic deterrence thought within the national security community.

This information repository is currently under development. At this stage, the products identified within may be notional to provide an indication of future plans. We anticipate having this site fully functional by 1 July 2017.

Research Products

The DRKC offers a starting point to identify existing research efforts both within and without the Air Force that address strategic deterrence and assurance issues, both nuclear and non-nuclear. This collection will identify the state of contemporary deterrence thought and guide Air Force education and research agencies towards existing data gaps, allowing the national security community to analyze and develop deterrence research that addresses operationally-relevant policy issues.
