America’s military has rapidly declined and is in need of a significant overhaul as shown by Heritage’s 2018 Index of Military Strength.
Two Heritage scholars, Dakota Wood and Tom Spoehr, are working on a project called Rebuilding America’s Military Power (RAMP), which will provide the concrete steps needed to get America’s military back on track.
RAMP will answer questions like:
- What is the role of each branch of the military in the future?
- What is the role of technology (AI, cyber, autonomous weapons) and conventional weaponry?
- How does the positioning and deployment of forces around the world affect our readiness?
- Beyond funding, what infrastructure will we need to achieve the growth and changes we propose?
RAMP will also keep in mind the long-term nature of changes to the military to understand what other areas the United States will need to meet future challenges.
Thank you for making this project possible.
What do you think are the top three needs of America’s military today?
