Great Powers Competition: The United States won the Cold War with the fall of the Berlin Wall (1989) and the dissolution of the Soviet Union (1991), and entered a period of relative peace and reduced military demands until the beginning of the War on Terror (2001). The United States and its Allies had a 25-year period without a near-peer adversary. As highlighted in the 2018 National Defense Strategy, the United States now faces a world of increasing competition between great powers. Moreover, the acquisition cycle time for fielding new operational capabilities in China and Russia may be faster than in the United States. These circumstances require increased performance and speed across our acquisition system.
