Evidence base for the development of an enduring DND/CAF operational energy strategy (DOES) : expressing Canadian values through defence operational energy stewardship here and abroad by Paul Labbé( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes a perspective of the Canadian defence operational energy domain from historical data, trends and expected future demand, cost and availability, here and abroad. It has been prepared in support of the development of the Department of National Defence (DND) operational energy strategy lead by Assistant Deputy Minister Infrastructure and Environment, ADM (IE). It does not advocate for any specific solution or Defence Research and Development (DRDC) science and technology (S & T) activities to conduct under the leadership of ADM (S & T), but identifies state-of-the-art S & T here and abroad that support the logic of the strategy. The focus is on the impact of energy on CAF (Canadian Armed Forces) operations and capabilities, i.e., Air, Maritime, Land and Special Forces, the development of their capabilities, Chief Forces Development (CFD), as well as domestic infrastructure under ADM (IE) across Canada including the Arctic. It also serves as an information base for DRDC, other Canadian organisations and Industry
Science and technology in action : delivering results for Canada's defence and security( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"S & T is essential for ensuring the defence of Canada, and represents a critical element of national security. The Department of National Defence (DND), the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and their safety and security partners depend on S & T to deliver on their respective mandates and adapt to ever-changing demands. S & T's importance is particularly true today, given the transformed technological and geostrategic landscape, and the complex challenges facing Canada's defence and security community. In an era of continuing global instability, resource constraints and the diffusion of advanced technologies, S & T and the broader innovation system are indispensable capabilities that support operational excellence and effective, evidence-based decision-making. It is this context which both shapes and defines Canada's new Defence and Security S & T Strategy"--

Power analysis for a proposed group randomized control trial (GRCT) on the Road to Mental Readiness (R2MP) program by Aihua Liu( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) program is the largest mental health training initiative in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). As part of an effort to test the efficacy of R2MR at Basic Military Qualification (BMQ) with a group randomized control trial (GRCT), a robust power analysis was conducted to determine the sample size that would be required for the GRCT on R2MR. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) were also calculated for the outcomes that will be measured in the GRCT, a necessary preliminary step for the power analysis. Data from the calculation of the ICCs were extracted from multiple programs of ongoing research with the Non- Commissioned Member (NCM) recruits, the intended target population for the GRCT. The results of the analyses suggest that data collected over the course of one full fiscal year will yield sufficient statistical power to detect expected effect sizes for most but not all of the outcomes. It is therefore recommended that data be collected lasting up to one and a half years for the proposed GRCT on R2MR
La science et la technologie à l'oeuvre : produire des résultats pour la défense et la sécurité du Canada( )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La S & T est essentielle pour assurer la défense du Canada et constitue un élément crucial de la sécurité nationale. Le ministère de la Défense nationale (MDN), les Forces armées canadiennes (FAC) et leurs partenaires en matière de sûreté et de sécurité dépendent de la S & T pour accomplir leurs mandats respectifs et s'adapter aux besoins qui évoluent continuellement. La S & T est particulièrement importante aujourd'hui en raison des changements observés dans le paysage technologique et géostratégique, et des défis complexes auxquels fait face la communauté responsable de la défense et de la sécurité du Canada. En cette époque d'instabilité mondiale continuelle, de pressions sur les ressources et de prolifération de technologies avancées, la S & T et tout le système lié à l'innovation dans sa globalité constituent d'indispensables capacités pour soutenir l'excellence opérationnelle et la prise de décisions efficace fondée sur la preuve scientifique. C'est tout ce contexte qui façonne et définit à la fois la nouvelle Stratégie en science et technologie pour la défense et sécurité du Canada"--

A parallel study between the resource typing as outlined in the American NIMS document and the levels of service required of the police forces of Quebec by Robert Beaudry( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to define which Resource Type is applicable to the Province of Quebec and its law enforcement. This report will take into account the levels of police services that the municipal police forces in Quebec and the Surete du Quebec must provide according to their level of jurisdiction. We will, therefore, attempt to create a parallel between the Resource Typing for the law enforcement and security forces outlined in the NIMS document and the levels of police services held in Quebec. Toward the end of the study, we will look into the services offered by the RCMP in Quebec relative to Resource Typing
Moral injury in military operations : a review of the literature and key considerations for the Canadian Armed Forces by Megan M Thompson( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) regroup from its largest deployment since Korea and the longest combat deployment since the Second World War, emerging mental health data suggests that approximately 14% of CAF personnel who had been deployed to Afghanistan had a mental health disorder that was linked to the Afghan mission. This paper focuses on a particular psychological aftermath of military operations, that which may be associated with the moral and ethical challenges that personnel face in military missions. More specifically, this paper provides an introduction to the concept of moral injury, formally defined as the psychological anguish that can result from?perpetrating, failing to prevent, bearing witness to, or learning about acts that transgress deeply held moral beliefs and expectations? (Litz et al., 2014, p. 697). The paper begins with a brief overview of the essential role of morality and ethics in military operations. It then outlines the historical development of the concept of moral injury, discusses its symptomatology, and outlines the current approaches to treatment. The paper concludes by discussing a number of key considerations for the CAF in terms of a way ahead with respect to the issue of moral injury
The future of allied air power : the United States Air Force by Brad W Gladman( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary purpose of this paper is to assist in focusing the Canadian Forces Aerospace Warfare Centre?s (CFAWC) concept development and experimentation efforts through an analysis of, in this case, the direction the US Air Force (USAF) seems to be taking in terms of major capability investment and concept development over the next ten or so years. While this will not be an exhaustive list of all the USAF?s capability development efforts, and will not deal with current capabilities that may be modified or adapted to meet operational requirements, it will highlight the current driving forces behind US strategic thinking, and will focus on the main areas of USAF capability investment and concept development. The selection of the USAF in isolation is intentional to keep the paper a manageable size, but it is acknowledged that subsequent papers dealing with United States Naval and US Army aviation will be needed to provide the kind of comprehensive understanding of US capability and concept development direction of value to theRoyal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and CFAWC
Information foraging theory : a framework for intelligence analysis by David J Bryant( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information Foraging Theory (IFT) is proposed as a framework in which model information search in the military intelligence analysis domain. Information Foraging Theory explains human information search and exploitation as adaptations to the informational structure of the environment and has been used to model peoples? preferences for information types, rules for exploiting discrete information sources, and the use of semantic cues to enhance the search process. A plan for the application of Information Foraging Theory to the military intelligence domain is described, beginning with the process of describing the task environment in which analysts work and moving to the issue of defining key Information Foraging Theory concepts in that environment. The report ends with a discussion of ways application of IFT may benefit military intelligence analysis, such as automated goal analysis and parameter tracking, enhancing information scent cues, and information visualisation techniques

CSSP environmental scan 2013 by Brian W Greene( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental Scan 2013 provides an overview of the key drivers and trends defining the context in which the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) is anticipated to operate over the next three to five years. The scan?s objective is to present a comprehensive and integrated picture of the public safety and security operating environment for the purpose of informing the development of CSSP priorities. After briefly outlining the broader safety and security and science and technology policy environments, the scan examines nine issues, threats, and hazards that constitute the problem space for CSSP activities
Malware memory analysis of the Jynx2 Linux rootkit : investigating a publicly available Linux rootkit using the volatility memory analysis framework by Richard Carbone( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the second in a series that will examine Linux Volatility-specific memory malware-based analysis techniques. Windows-based malware memory analysis techniques were analysed in a previous series. Unlike these Windows-based reports, some of the techniques described therein are not applicable to Linux-based analyses including data carving and anti-virus scanning. Thus, with minimal use of scanner-based technologies, the author will demonstrate what to look for while conducting Linux-specific Volatility-based investigations. Each investigation consists of an infected memory image and its accompanying Volatility memory profile that will be used to examine a different open source rootkit. Some of the rootkits are user-land while others are kernel-based. Rootkits were chosen over Trojans, worms and viruses as rootkits tend to be more sophisticated. This specific investigation examines the Jynx2 rootkit. It is hoped that through the proper application of various Volatility plugins combined with an in-depth knowledge of the Linux operating system, these case studies will provide guidance to other investigators in their own analyses

The 2007 surge in Iraq : an alternative view by Anton Minkov( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2007 surge (increase in US troops) in Iraq is considered one of the most significant military events in recent history given that it coincided with a marked decrease in violent attacks. Among the number of studies that have assessed the efficacy of the surge, most recently it was suggested that the synergy between the surge and the standup of the Sunni militias?Sons of Iraq? was the key factor for the decline of violence. However, revisiting the data reveals that violence had generally peaked before the surge and that the standups lagged peak violence by several months. This study presents a critical examination of other factors that might explain the decline in violence. It is difficult to pinpoint the trends that were most prominent, but they all likely contributed to a shift in the momentum of the security situation in the fall of 2006, before the surge was even announced. Thus, our analysis suggests that the surge was an unnecessary gambit
