Long-Term Implications of the 2016 Future Years Defense Program


The Department of Defense’s five-year plan calls for budgets averaging $534 billion (in 2016 dollars) from 2016 through 2020, but they would average $565 billion per year from 2021 through 2030 under the department’s cost assumptions.

Subsequent versions of this report appear in Long-Term Implications of the Future Years Defense Program.
