Field Program: CNA Has Supported Every Conflict Involving the Navy or Marines Since WWII


Through its Field Program, CNA's Operations Evaluation Group (OEG) and Marine Corps Program keep nearly 50 analysts assigned to Navy, Marine Corps, and Joint Commands at all times.

Run by CNA's Operations Evaluation Group (OEG) and Marine Corps Program, assignments are for two to three years and range from aircraft carrier strike groups and Marine expeditionary forces to the U.S. Pacific Command. These field representatives are included in all functions of the command and provide real-time analytic support on operational problems.

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.
