What should Air Force decisionmakers consider when making force mix deliberations across each element of the total force-active, Air Force Reserve (AFR), and the Air National Guard (ANG)? Generally, rational deliberations of force-mix decisions have focused on three factors-cost, military effectiveness, and availability. However, these three factors may not be the only considerations that should apply in determining an appropriate force mix. There is also the issue understood but often intangible-of how reserve forces help to meet certain social and political objectives important to the Air Force and Department of Defense (DoD) and how the reserve component (RC) captures valuable experience and expertise that would otherwise be lost. In addition, it is necessary to understand why the flow of human capital from active to reserve forces must be kept within feasible bounds. Finally, it is important to understand cost considerations in a disaggregated way; in other words, does the type of mission the Air Force performs favor one component over the other?

RAND developed a methodology to help understand and explain the differences between U.S. Air National Guard and active component aircraft maintenance productivity. This research focuses on maintenance options for supporting associate units, where the goal of the associate unit is to produce trained pilots in the most efficient manner possible.

The following steps are recommended for consistent, efficient, and effective plans and means for improving the development of U.S. Air Force officers in their career fields: (1) identify the demand for jobs in the field grades-major, lieutenant colonel, and colonel; (2) ascertain the backgrounds that officers have accumulated (assess the supply); (3) compare supply with demand (gap analysis); and (4) plan ways to close the gaps.

Manpower end-strength reductions of active duty personnel in the U.S. Air Force are making it more difficult to support the air and space expeditionary force construct using current force employment practices. The Air National Guard (ANG), however, will not undergo significant manpower reductions but will be affected by plans that call for the retirement of a significant number of its aircraft, leaving it with a large number of highly trained, highly experienced personnel with no aircraft to operate and support. The authors develop a methodology to evaluate missions that could be transferred from the active component to the ANG without significant cost to the total force. They conclude that four areas-Predator operations and support, air mobility command and control, Commander of Air Force forces staffing, and base-level intermediate maintenance-are missions that could benefit from ANG assignment.

The United States is now engaged in a different type of war, not intensive combat operations but, instead, prolonged low-level operations to establish the context for a transition to stable local government in Afghanistan and Iraq. In these stability operations, the Department of Defense (DoD) has made unprecedented use of its Reserve Components (RC). Forces that had previously been viewed as a "Strategic Reserve" and called up less than once in a generation are now being used as an "Operational Reserve", with an expectation of call-up as much as one year in six and, recently, even more frequently. The changed threat environment and utilization pattern suggest the utility of rethinking our conception of the RC. To rethink the role of the Reserves and the implications of that rethinking for the size, nature, and compensation of the Reserves, this RAND monograph draws together analyses from several RAND projects -- past and ongoing. Deliberately making no specific recommendations, it rethinks the Reserve Component of the armed forces, the level of commitment expected from its members, what roles are assigned to them, and their compensation. The key consideration appears to be rotation policy. If we assume current rotation policy, for plausible values of the other parameters, the RC is usually cheaper. However, if we assume that when we next use the RC intensively we will also use the AC as we are using them now, then for plausible values of the parameters, the RC is nearly as expensive or even more expensive than the AC. This monograph should be of interest to the broad defense community -- in DoD, in Congress, and across the country -- as the relative cost of the Reserves, their size, and their design are reconsidered. Consistent with this wide intended audience, the presentation here is nontechnical. More-technical information appears in footnotes and in two appendixes.
