Quadrenial Defense Review (QDR) 2010 released

Today the Department of Defense (DoD) released it’s once-every-four-years report to Congress on the military’s defense planning called the Quadrennial Defense Review 2010 (see DoD press release).

Significant highlights of the report include the consideration of the significance of climate change on national security; the greening of the Department of Defense, including efforts to make the military more environmentally friendly, to anticipate and prepare for environmentally driven crises and disasters, and to achieve energy security; and efforts to convert the nontactical vehicle fleet away from gasoline-dependence, and a Navy plan to deploy a carrier strike group running on biofuels and nuclear power by 2016.

For more analysis of what’s inside the QDR, please see the following articles:

All of the strategic defense reviews are available at DoD Strategic Defense reviews including the Quadrenial Defense Review (QDR), Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), Ballistic Missile Defense Review (BMDR) and the Space Posture Review (SPR).
