The report is called "Defense - New Realities, Innovative Response." It came out of recommendations from the Sustainable Defense Task Force, which looks at how the U.S. should reduce its deficit by updating the military's current force structure. Five key areas for growth are: intelligence, cybersecurity, IT, Business process improvement and international markets.
