In the second half of the 20th century, the United States enjoyed stature and prosperity at levels seldom achieved in recorded history. The country s status included predominance in most fields of science and technology (S&T), as well as a phenomenal breadth and pace of innovation. We are now experiencing a global shift to a more level playing field among nations; demographics, economics, and political forces are the driving forces behind this shift. The impact of this shift on U.S. S&T...

By: Tracy A. Hightower The O.O.D.A. Loop is a process we go through hundreds if not thousands of times in a single day. It is a process that defines how we humans react to stimulus. Colonel John Boyd coined the term O.O.D.A. Loop, in the 1950’s. Colonel Boyd, known as the “Fighter Pilot who changed the Art of War”, was an F-86 pilot and commander of a fighter group during the latter part of the Korean War.

Dissident Provocations Much of what Lind learned about Fourth Generation Warfare he cribbed from John Boyd, America's greatest strategist, who thought Sun Tzu was without error. Boyd posited there were 3 levels of conflict: Physical, Mental, and Moral. Moral is the highest. Moral dominates. Guerrilla war is moral conflict. You can conceptualize guerrilla war also as non-kinetic. Thus, the principles of guerrilla warfare can be used in kinetic and non-kinetic warfare. JAMES SCAMINACI III

The goal of the Department of Defense Net-Centric Data Strategy is to improve data sharing throughout the DoD. Data sharing is a critical element of interoperability in the emerging system-of-systems. Achieving interoperability requires the elimination of two types of data heterogeneity: differences of syntax and differences of semantics. This paper builds a path toward semantic uniformity through application of a disciplined approach to ontology. An ontology is a consensus framework...

Reducing U.S. forces? battlefield mortality is a paramount concern. Methods to more accurately forecast medical needs, for example by tactical medical logistics modeling and simulation, are constantly being developed. The Naval Health Research Center's (NHRC) Tactical Medical Logistics (TML+) simulation tool continues to gain respect in the planning community. However, further testing and improvement is needed to confirm or strengthen its capabilities to deliver accurate and useful information...
