Think tank

RAF CAPS functions as a quasi think tank, and is the Royal Air Force's center for strategic and conceptual thinking on air power. Its goals are to 1) generate evidence-based academic research; 2) exercise strategic influence, primarily through coordinated engagements with think tanks, like-minded organizations, and other professional bodies; 3) leverage the "intellectual horsepower" of external institutions and RAF personnel; and 4) help inculcate a philosophy of learning and critical thinking within the Royal Air Force.
