Mordernizing a force to fight and win
DIA - Robert P. Ashley, Jr Lieutenant General, U.S. Army Director Defense Intelligence Agency

In September 1981, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger asked the Defense Intelligence Agency to provide an unclassified overview of the Soviet Union's military force. The objective was to provide U.S. leaders, the national security community and the public with a comprehensive and accurate overview of the threat, resulting in the first edition of the document "The Soviet Military Power". The DIA produced more than 250,000 copies, and it quickly became an annual publication that was translated into eight languages and distributed around the world. In many cases, this report was the first time the United States and the public were aware of the scope and scale of Soviet military power.

The changing natural environment of the Arctic and the far North is leading to a change in the security environment.
