Strategic Studies Institute

SSI

Carlisle, PA, United States

SSI is the US Army's premier institute for global and national strategic security research and analysis, covering both national security policy and military strategy. SSI's primary function is to provide direct analysis for Army and Department of Defense leadership and serve as a bridge to the wider strategic community. Also, SSI is the focal point for research at the Army War College, providing research and expertise in curriculum development and assisting other members of the faculty in research projects. The institute links the Army to the American and international strategic communities and is the only research organization in the United States that focuses on the strategic role of land power. SSI gathers wisdom from the wider strategic community for Army senior leaders and explains the role of the Army and land power to both the strategic community and national decision-makers through rigorous, independent analysis.
