The USAF Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), according to the Airpower Journal[1], is "an independent research center located at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado." (Not to be confused with the Israeli think tanks the Institute for National Security Studies). Its dual mission is 'to promote national security research within the military academic community for the Department of Defense and to support the Air Force national security education program. [Then] in its fourth year of operation, INSS is sponsored by the National Security Negotiations Division, Plans Directorate, Headquarters US Air Force (AF/XOXI); Air Force Intelligence (AF/IN); the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA); and--new since [1995]--the Office of the Secretary of Defense's Office of Net Assessment and the US Army Environmental Policy Institute (AEPI). XOXI provides the bulk of our research topics and funding, and we are grateful for its continued recognition of the value of our research to support the Air Staff mission.'[2]
