What Do '"Analysts" Do? Each of the service staffs in Washington has an internal capability to perform systems analysis, or access to outside analytical agencies, or both. The Air Force has the Assistant Chief of Staff, Studies and Analysis, with a professional staff of nearly 100 officers and civilians. In addition, the Air Staff can call on the Rand Corporation, Analytical Services (ANSER), and other not-for-profit concerns.
