Arms trafficking and Colombia by Kim Cragin( )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colombia has experienced significant political instability and violence over the past century due to a number of factors--the drug trade, a protracted insurgent conflict, internal corruption, and small-arms proliferation, the last being among the most serious of the country's problems. The authors identify the sources and routes used by arms traffickers to acquire, buy, sell, receive, transfer, and ship weapons. They also examine the various guerrilla groups, paramilitary organizations, criminal factions, and ordinary citizens who purchase and use these munitions. The authors then examine Colombia₂s political conflict through the lens of small-arms trafficking and conclude with policy implications for the U.S. government. The authors find that small-arms trafficking patterns--the manner by which arms and munitions are acquired and distributed--provide useful insights into the strategies used by insurgent groups engaged in conflict and a conflict's future evolution
Report of a workshop on big data by Workshop on Big Data( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2012, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) approached the National Research Council's TIGER standing committee and asked it to develop a list of workshop topics to explore the impact of emerging science and technology. From the list of topics given to DIA, three were chosen to be developed by the Committee for Science and Technology Challenges to U.S. National Security Interests. The first in a series of three workshops was held on April 23-24, 2012. This report summarizes that first workshop which explored the phenomenon known as big data. The objective for the first workshop is given in the statement of task, which explains that that workshop will review emerging capabilities in large computational data to include speed, data fusion, use, and commodification of data used in decision making. The workshop will also review the subsequent increase in vulnerabilities over the capabilities gained and the significance to national security. The committee devised an agenda that helped the committee, sponsors, and workshop attendees probe issues of national security related to so-called big data, as well as gain understanding of potential related vulnerabilities. The workshop was used to gather data that is described in this report, which presents views expressed by individual workshop participants. Big Data: A Workshop Report is the first in a series of three workshops, held in early 2012 to further the ongoing engagement among the National Research Council's (NRC's) Technology Insight-Gauge, Evaluate, and Review (TIGER) Standing Committee, the scientific and technical intelligence (S & TI) community, and the consumers of S & TI products
Defense Intelligence Agency 50th anniversary : an illustrated history( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This year, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) celebrates the 50th anniversary of its establishment. For five decades, DIA has provided timely and objective military intelligence to warfighters, defense planners, and policymakers. From the Cold War to the Gulf War, from the conflict in Vietnam to the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, from confronting communism to battling terrorism, the talented and dedicated professionals of DIA have repeatedly demonstrated their commitment to excellence in defense of the nation. Anniversaries are a time for reflection. As we remember the way things used to be, we think about how and why things have changed. The Defense Intelligence Agency has undergone immense change and growth over the course of its first fifty years. DIA started with 20 people in borrowed space in the Pentagon; it now has approximately 16,500 individuals deployed all over the world. This volume tells the story of how the agency grew in missions, abilities, size, and credibility, while overcoming early struggles and reorganizations, responding to Cold War threats, countering terrorism, and learning to handle the challenge of asymmetric warfare. These experiences have transformed DIA into what it has become today-the nation's preeminent defense intelligence organization.--from the foreword
