Mr. Peter A. Wilson

External Researcher

PETER A. WILSON graduated from Princeton University in 1966 with a B.A. in political science. He then attended the University of Chicago where he earned an M.A. in political science in 1970. Mr. Wilson is a member of the senior staff at RAND. During the last several years, he has been working on a number of interrelated projects including the co-authorship of the “The Day After” policy exercise series which have explored the implications of major challenges (counterproliferation, strategic information warfare, and electronic commerce) to post-Cold War national security planning. Mr. Wilson is co-teaching a course at Georgetown University’s School for Foreign Service that will use the RAND exercise experience to examine the implications of these new technologies to a significant change of the early 21st century definition of national security. Mr. Wilson’s written works have appeared in Parameters, Naval Institute’s Proceedings, National Defense University Press, the Progressive Policy Institute, Washington Quarterly, and include the co-authorship of several major RAND studies.

  • The Case for Army XXI

    May 01, 1998

    Authored by Mr. John Gordon, IV, Mr. Peter A. Wilson.
    The authors believe there is a mix of extant and near-term combat systems and technologies that will allow the Army to create a number of "aero-motorized" divisions within likely budgetary constraints by the end of the next decade. These medium-weight combat units would exploit the large investment the Air Force is making to modernize its strategic and theater airlift fleets during the first decade.
