Run by CNA's Operations Evaluation Group (OEG) and Marine Corps Program, the Field Program deploys analysts for two to three years to posts ranging from aircraft carrier strike groups and Marine expeditionary forces to the U.S. Pacific Command.
In times of crisis or conflict OEG augments its field staff, sending additional analysts to on-scene posts. During these deployments OEG analysts help commanders conduct operations more effectively and safely. They are also responsible for identifying issues requiring post-conflict analyses and for collecting data to support those efforts.
