The Center for Operational Analysis conducts operations and logistic research that directly impacts the Air Force and the Department of Defense. We accomplish this mission through faculty led, student driven research along with our technical knowledge while maintaining close working ties with our research sponsors and affiliates who provide the subject matter expertise to truly understand the operational requirements. In a time when the Air Force and the Department of Defense are looking for improved efficiencies and greater effectiveness, the COA provides a means to achieve these results. Please e-mail me with your questions.
I encourage you to explore our website and see the past and current research that delivers operational impact. The COA is a forward looking organization that is interested in addressing the toughest technically challenging issues facing our Air Force and the Department of Defense. I would be happy to discuss where research with the Center for Operational Analysis may be able to assist your organization.
