The Aldurian Armed Forces encompass the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Coast Guard, the Border Guard and the Support Services. The President of Alduria heads the armed forces as Commander in Chief. The President forms military policy with the Prime Minister and the Department of Defense, a national executive department acting as the principal organ by which military policy is carried out.

After the terrorist attack on Corrada del Rio that sparked the West Baatharzi War, the Aldurian Parliament passed the National Defense Authorization Act, 1674 (also known as the NDAA 1674). NDAA 1674 spent a total of A€ 210 billion in an effort "further develop the armed forces of the Republic of Alduria".

Personnel

The head of the Aldurian armed forces is the President of the Republic, in his role as Commander in Chief. However, the Constitution puts civil and military government forces at the disposal of the Government (the executive cabinet of ministers chaired by the Prime Minister, who are not necessarily of the same political side as the president).

The Department of Defense oversees the military's funding, procurement, and operations. Prior to the adoption of the Constitution, Alduria relied a great deal on conscription to provide manpower for its military forces, in addition to a minority of professional career soldiers. During heated debates in the Constituent Assembly, libertarian, socialist, and some conservative factions successfully teamed up to ensure that a ban on conscription was included in the Constitution.

As of 1671, the Aldurian Armed Forces have total manpower of 559,004, and active personnel of 378,198.

It breaks down as follows:

The Aldurian reserve element is composed of two parts: the Operational Reserve and the Citizens Reserve. As of 1673 AN, the strength of the Operational Reserve is 658,200, and the Citizens Reserve is 575,787‬.

Facilities

Integrated Aerospace Defense System

The Integrated Aerospace Defense System (IADS) is a part of the Aldurian armed forces that provides aerospace warning, air sovereignty, and protection for Alduria. The commander and deputy commander are, respectively, a four-star general and a three-star general respectively. The IADS contains long-range surveillance radars and regularly provides communication and radar data to both civilian and military aviation control centers throughout Alduria.

Integrated Undersea Surveillance System

The Integrated Undersea Surveillance System (IUSS) is a chain of underwater listening posts located around Alduria's territorial waters. It was later supplemented by mobile assets that could be deployed by the Aldurian Navy. These listening posts are fixed, mobile, and/or deployable acoustic arrays that provide vital information about submarines both nuclear and diesel. The program has emphasizes a smaller force that is effective against modern diesel and nuclear submarines in regional/littoral or broad ocean areas of interest. Work stations, enhanced signal processing, and modern communication technologies enable remote array monitoring.

Research and Development

Agency for Defense Development

The Agency for Defense Development is an agency of the Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the Aldurian military. By collaborating with academic, industry, and government partners, the ADD formulates and executes research and development projects to expand the frontiers of technology and science, often beyond immediate Aldurian military requirements. Projects funded by the ADD have provided significant technologies that influenced many non-military fields in Alduria, such as information technology, aviation, and space transport. ADD is independent of other military research and development and reports directly to senior Department of Defense management.
