Past revolutions, future transformations : what can the history of revolutions in military affairs tell us about transforming the U.S. military? by Richard O Hundley( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
Advances in technology can bring about dramatic changes in military operations, often termed "revolutions in military affairs" or RMAs. Such technology-driven changes in military operations are not merely a recent phenomenon: they have been occurring since the dawn of history, they will continue to occur in the future, and they will continue to bestow a military advantage on the first nation to develop and use them. Accordingly, it is important to the continued vitality and robustness of the U.S. defense posture for the DoD R & D community to be aware of technology developments that could revolutionize military operations in the future, and for the U.S. military services to be on the lookout for revolutionary ways in which to employ those technologies in warfare. This report examines the history of past RMAs, to see what can be learned from them regarding the challenge confronting the DoD today, when it has set out on a concerted effort to bring about a technology-driven transformation of the U.S. military to achieve the operational goals outlined in Joint Vision 2010. Among its many findings are three of particular note: RMAs are rarely brought about by dominant players (such as the U.S. military is today). For a dominant player to bring about an RMA requires a receptive organizational climate, fostering a continually refined vision of how war may change in the future and encouraging vigorous debate regarding the future of the organization; senior officers with traditional credentials willing to sponsor new ways of doing things and able to establish new promotion pathways for junior officers practicing a new way of war; mechanisms for experimentation, to discover, learn, test and demonstrate new ideas; and ways of responding positively to the results of successful experiments, in terms of doctrinal changes, acquisition programs, and force structure modifications. The DoD has some of these elements today, but is missing others. The report makes specific suggestions regarding ways of filling in the missing elements. Doing these things will facilitate DoD's force transformation activities and help ensure that the next RMA is brought about by the United States. and not some other nation

Combat in hell : a consideration of constrained urban warfare by Russell W Glenn( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
Armed forces are ever more likely to fight in cities as the world becomes increasingly urbanized. Accordingly, public and moral concerns about the costs of war borne by noncombatants increase as well. This report is a study of urban warfare and its challenges for U.S. armed forces constrained by having to minimize noncombatant casualties and collateral damage. America's armed forces are likely to have to confront the hell of urban combat. They have the potential to do so successfully. However, this environment's challenging character is unalterable; it will consume any force that fights unprepared. This study, based on an in-depth literature search and scores of interviews, has three primary objectives: (1) Describe the conditions confronting a ground force fighting under the constraints of minimizing noncombatant casualties and collateral damage, along with the difficulties of fighting under such conditions in urban areas; (2) Identify U.S. armed forces' current capabilities and ongoing efforts to enhance them; and (3) Determine current shortfalls and present potential remedies for identified vulnerabilities. Consideration of such solutions will include analysis of feasible changes in doctrine, training, and technologies that would give regular U.S. forces the capability to successfully perform constrained urban operations
The arsenal ship acquisition process experience : contrasting and common impressions from the contractor teams and joint program office by Robert S Leonard( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
The Arsenal Ship acquisition program was unique in two respects: it represented a new operational concept for Navy weapon systems, and its management structure and process represented a significant departure from traditional military ship-building programs. The Arsenal Ship program was, in effect, an experiment; while the Navy envisioned an array of mission capabilities for the ship, it set the project budget as the single immovable requirement. In the end, political and financial constraints caused the program's cancellation. Nevertheless, its acquisition approach and technical innovations have already had--and will continue to have--significant influence on other Navy ship-building programs. The lessons learned from the Arsenal Ship program, applied to existing and planned systems, should more than recover the money spent on it
Finding and fixing vulnerabilities in information systems : the vulnerability assessment & mitigation methodology ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
Understanding an organization's reliance on information systems and how to mitigate the vulnerabilities of these systems can be an intimidating challenge--especially when considering less well-known weaknesses or even unknown vulnerabilities that have not yet been exploited. The authors, understanding the risks posed by new kinds of information security threats, build on previous RAND mitigation techniques by introducing the Vulnerability Assessment and Mitigation (VAM) methodology. The six-step procedure uses a top-down approach to protect against future threats and system failures while mitigating current and past threats and weaknesses. The authors lead evaluators through the procedure of classifying vulnerabilities in their systems' physical, cyber, human/social, and infrastructure elements, and identifying which security techniques can be relevant for these vulnerabilities. The authors also use VAM to break down information compromises into five fundamental components of attack or failure: knowledge, access, target vulnerability, non-retribution, and assessment. In addition, a new automated tool implemented as an Excel spreadsheet is discussed; this tool greatly simplifies using the methodology and emphasizes analysis on cautions, risks, and barriers
Innovative management in the DARPA high altitude endurance unmanned aerial vehicle program : phase II experience by Jeffrey A Drezner( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 160 libraries worldwide
The U.S. military's development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has been hampered by cost overruns, schedule slippage, and disappointing operational results. The High Altitude Endurance UAV (HAE UAV) joint program, initiated under the direction of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), incorporates several innovative elements in its acquisition strategy that depart radically from traditional acquisition approaches. The program's development phase for the Global Hawk and DarkStar air vehicles is analyzed in this research. The HAE UAV program has experienced problems that are typical of newly implemented methods, but it has produced significant benefits, and provides lessons that could improve a wide variety of future acquisition processes

Computerized collective training for teams : final report by Paul Thurmond( Book )
4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this investigation was to empirically demonstrate and evaluate a brassboard for computerized collective training for teams (colt2). The underlying tasks were to (1) conduct a state of the art assessment of instructional strategies appropriate for colt2, (2) derive a conceptual framework for colt2 instructional strategies, (3) conduct a team job/task and training analysis for colt2 on the Army computerized artillery fire control system (tacfire), and (4) develop tacfire team training scenarios for the purpose of instructional strategy assessment. The procedures included design and implementation of a team isd model, via which sample training materials were developed. The materials were adapted to the team training version of the planit cai system. The results of the developmental aspects of the project indicate that many of the components of the team isd approach that were designed for this effort would adequately meet the criteria for a generic team isd model. Preparation of team learning objectives and evaluation of interactive team skills are deficient areas. Planit met the basic team cai requirements. The results preliminarily indicate that there are differences in regard to what types of behavior are learned between team and individual instruction. (Author/JEG)
