For two decades, the U.S. Air Force Center for Strategic Deterrence Studies (CSDS) has enhanced the national security community's discussion of issues involving nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons through its educational courses, research products, and weekly News and Analysis publication. In September, CSDS will mark 20 years of continuous service and is proud to introduce this special anniversary logo to mark the occasion. This logo displays the radiological hazard symbol, representing both nuclear weapons effects and the imperative to develop countermeasures against all weapons of mass destruction.

Deterrence Research Task Force

The Deterrence Research Task Force (RTF) employs Air University students, faculty, and staff to address issues of importance in the domain of nuclear and non-nuclear deterrence. It is led by the USAF Center for Strategic Deterrence Studies (add link to the AFPIMS site) and includes students from the Air War College and Air Command and Staff College. The commander of Air Force Global Strike Command and the Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategic Deterrence and Nuclear Integration sponsor the RTF, providing strategic policy questions for the students to address and supporting research through active engagement with the students. The 60-hour elective includes two field trips, one to the DOE labs and one to Washington DC to discuss contemporary issues with top researchers and policy makers. The results of the student research are published in monographs available on the CSDS website.
