United States Army Training And Doctrine Command Analysis Center

The United States Army Training and Doctrine Command Analysis Center (TRAC) is an analysis agency of the United States Army. TRAC conducts research on potential military operations worldwide to inform decisions about the most challenging issues facing the Army and the Department of Defense (DoD). TRAC relies upon the intellectual capital of a highly skilled workforce of military and civilian personnel to execute its mission.

TRAC conducts operations research (OR) on a wide range of military topics, some contemporary but most often set 5 to 15 years in the future. How should Army units be organized? What new systems should be procured? How should soldiers and commanders be trained? What are the costs and benefits of competing options? What are the potential risks and rewards of a planned military course of action? TRAC directly supports the mission of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), to develop future concepts and requirements while also serving the decision needs of many military clients.

    Some of the offers that have come to me would never have come if I had not been President. That means these people are trying to hire not Calvin Coolidge, but a former President of the United States. I can’t make that kind of use of the office.... I can’t do anything that might take away from the Presidency any of its dignity, or any of the faith people have in it.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    The United States themselves are essentially the greatest poem.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Nullification ... means insurrection and war; and the other states have a right to put it down.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    We have nothing to fear from our foes; God keeps a standing army for that service; but we have no ally against our Friends, those ruthless Vandals.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The triumphs of peace have been in some proximity to war. Whilst the hand was still familiar with the sword-hilt, whilst the habits of the camp were still visible in the port and complexion of the gentleman, his intellectual power culminated; the compression and tension of these stern conditions is a training for the finest and softest arts, and can rarely be compensated in tranquil times, except by some analogous vigor drawn from occupations as hardy as war.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    As if reasoning were any kind of writing or talking which tends to convince people that some doctrine or measure is true and right.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)

    By his command these words are cut:
    Cast a cold eye
    On life, on death.
    Horseman, pass by!
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The spider-mind acquires a faculty of memory, and, with it, a singular skill of analysis and synthesis, taking apart and putting together in different relations the meshes of its trap. Man had in the beginning no power of analysis or synthesis approaching that of the spider, or even of the honey-bee; but he had acute sensibility to the higher forces.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    The question of whether it’s God’s green earth is not at center stage, except in the sense that if so, one is reminded with some regularity that He may be dying.
    Edward Hoagland (b. 1932)
