Tactics and Operations

For 80 years, CNA has brought sophisticated mathematical and scientific approaches to the real world of military and domestic operations, exercises and training. CNA analysts have always worked in close contact with officers and sailors, first responders and Marines, most notably in the CNA Field Program. CNA’s expertise developed in the field ensures that operators can make the best use of the technology and resources they have at hand.

Military and government leaders rely on CNA to supply expertise that they do not have the time, background or historical context to supply themselves. TOPGUN instructors confirm the validity of new fighter tactics against the data of CNA analysts. Law enforcement and emergency management leaders improve operations with help from CNA after-action reports on shootings, civil unrest and natural disasters. Carrier strike group commanders seek insights from CNA post-exercise briefings.
