Strategic appraisal : the changing role of information in warfare by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in information technology have led us to rely on easy communication and readily available information--both in our personal lives and in the life of our nation. For the most part, we have rightly welcomed these changes. But information that is readily available is available to friend and foe alike; a system that relies on communication can become useless if its ability to communicate is interfered with or destroyed. Because this reliance is so general, attacks on the information infrastructure can have widespread effects, both for the military and for society. And such attacks can come from a variety of sources, some difficult or impossible to identify. This, the third volume in the Strategic Appraisal series, draws on the expertise of researchers from across RAND to explore the opportunities and vulnerabilities inherent in the increasing reliance on information technology, looking both at its usefulness to the warrior and the need to protect its usefulness for everyone. The Strategic Appraisal series is intended to review, for a broad audience, issues bearing on national security and defense planning
Keeping the edge : managing defense for the future by Ashton B Carter( )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most national security debates concern the outcomes of policies, neglecting the means by which those policies are implemented. This book argues that although the US military is the finest fighting force in the world, the system that supports it is in disrepair. Operating with Cold War-era structures and practices, it is subject to managerial and organizational problems that increasingly threaten our military's effectiveness. Keeping the Edge goes beyond questions of Pentagon reorganization and weapons procurement to explore how the US defense establishment can improve its readiness, logistics, and ability to attract and retain qualified personnel. It also looks at how the US military can exploit information technology more effectively, improve its intelligence, and counter asymmetric threats. More comprehensive than the usual exhortation to cut waste, fraud, and abuse at the Pentagon, the book in fact recommends changes in many government agencies, not just the Department of Defense. It shows how the US can improve its ability to implement its policies and to anticipate and adapt to a changing and uncertain world

Transformation for what? by John Patrick White( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most significant of global security reassessments is currently underway, driven by Operations IRAQI FREEDOM and Operation ENDURING FREEDOM, continuing technological developments, budget constraints, and the debate associated with the 2005 Quadrennial Defense Review. To provide senior defense leaders with ideas on security transformation, the Strategic Studies Institute has joined with the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government to bring together top experts on an annual basis. For the third meeting in this series--held in November 2004--the National Defense University joined as a partner. The informed and free flowing debate at this conference generated a range of frank assessments and creative ideas about the status of security transformation. This report summarizes the debates and findings of the November session

Estimating the quality of Air Force volunteers by Alvin A Cook( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The description is given of an analytical model of airmen supply in the context of occupational choice. The model is used to examine the distribution of volunteers in terms of the Armed forces qualification test scores of new airmen over time. By considering the manner in which the Air Force creams the volunteer population to obtain its recruits, the model can be used to explain the variation in the quality of recruits under different situations. It provides the Air Force with a device for controlling enlistee quality, and underscores the validity of the creaming process. (Author)

Security transformation : report of the Belfer Center Conference on Military Transformation by John P White( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attacks of September 11, 2001, represented the beginning of what President Bush has called [beta]a new kind of war.[gamma] While terrorism itself has long been on our spectrum of real and immediate threats, the magnitude of the attacks and the administration[alpha]s aggressive and expansive response have changed the definition of national security. Homeland security, the new first priority, needs to be integrated with more traditional national security concerns. The role of the Intelligence Community must strike a new balance in terms of foreign intelligence and domestic security. The military mission should be redefined. Meeting all of these challenges demands a fundamental transformation of American strategy, armed forces, and national security organization. This conference identified key issues and questions and was the inaugural event in a long-term project to assess defense transformation. This report summarizes the discussions from that workshop
