Stealing the sword : limiting terrorist use of advanced conventional weapons by James Bonomo( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines how terrorists make technology choices and how the United States can discourage terrorists' use of advanced conventional weapons. Concludes that the United States should urgently start discussions with key producer nations and also decide on an architecture needed to impose technical controls on new mortar systems that should enter development soon
Monitoring and controlling the international transfer of technology by Critical Technologies Institute (Rand Corporation)( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is a net exporter of technology and technical knowledge. Despite fears that this outflow of technology is costly to U.S. taxpayers, it would be impractical to institute a government-wide system for monitoring and restricting overseas technology transfers. First, a review of the economic effects of technology transfer showed that it is not possible to estimate accurately the financial effect on the United States of the international transfer of government-sponsored technology. Moreover, the methods of transfer that might be monitored or restricted are also sources of the valuable, high domestic societal return to government investments in research and development. Finally, government agencies do not see international technology transfer issues as central to their missions and are likely to see new requirements as constraints on their ability to carry out their missions. The authors thus recommend no major policy shifts but do suggest some changes in existing policy that would enhance the U.S. government's ability to trace and to capture the benefits of certain technical innovations

New methods for robust science and technology planning by Robert J Lempert( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RAND researchers have conducted a successful proof-of-concept demonstration for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of two new methods for science and technology (S & T) planning. These methods--HyperForum, a facilitated Web-based collaborative exercise, conducted in a carefully crafted, information-rich, online environment, and Exploratory Modeling, a new approach to generating systematic, quantitative comparisons among alternative policy decisions without relying on imperfect predictions of the future--exploit new information technologies in order to : improve the quality of the S & T planning process by using online computer-assisted decision-support tools that (1) make relevant information more easily available to expert panelists meeting over the World Wide Web, and (2) help panelists include and compensate for the effects of uncertainty by treating an S & T plan as a portfolio of technology investments hedged against a wide range of plausible futures; provide a lasting electronic archive of the expert discussions and other information that go into building an S & T plan; lower the travel-related costs and scheduling constraints of the current planning process by supplementing face-to-face expert panel meetings with asynchronous meetings over the World Wide Web. This documented briefing describes that demonstration. It should be of interest to decisionmakers responsible for choosing, managing, and justifying portfolios of science and technology research projects in the Department of Defense and other federal agencies, and in the private sector. In addition, it should be informative to those readers intereste
NATO's anti-tactical ballistic missile requirements and their relationship to the strategic defense initiative by David Rubenson( Book )

9 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report attempts to structure the broad range of issues affecting the potential development of anti-tactical ballistic missile (ATBM) systems by evaluating the relationship among NATO's potential needs for ATBMs, the technologies under development in the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) program, and the political constraints in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), where ATBMs would be deployed. The authors conclude that planners attempting to improve NATO's air defenses and those attempting to advance SDI research goals are faced with distinctly different problems. Since NATO's requirements have little connection to SDI, an ATBM system intended to advance SDI goals must be based almost entirely on SDI objectives and could cause controversy in the FRG. Conversely, the limited systems of most interest to NATO stand outside the political debate. (JHD)
The promise of passive defenses by James Bonomo( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tactical ballistic missiles (TBMs) have distinctive strengths as offensive, conventional weapons: they strike speedily and, in the absence of defense, with assurance. But current versions also have distinctive weaknesses: they are not precision, 'smart' weapons, nor are they cheap. Passive defense use the weaknesses to mitigate the strength. Since TBMs are likely to remain an expensive method of delivering ordnance, their use will probably be restricted to targets where their fast, assured arrival would yield a high payoff. Targets for which fast arrival is less important can be more efficiently handled by slower weapons, either aircraft or cruise missiles. Thus, only for the time- critical targets is a defense against TBMs essential, whether active or passive. For this restricted set of targets, passive defense hold great promise. Combinations of hardening, redundancy, dispersal, and mobility can significantly reduce the damage such TBMs, as well as mitigate the effects of other attacks. For the capabilities imputed to Soviet TBMs in the 1990s, passive defenses may be able effectively to counter conventional TBM attacks. (RRH)
The Office of Science and Technology Policy Blue Ribbon Panel on the Threat of Biological Terrorism Directed Against Livestock by United States( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motivated by the growing threat of terrorism to the nation's homeland, the Office of Science and Technology, in conjunction with the RAND Science and Technology Policy Institute, organized and convened a Blue Ribbon Panel in early December 2003 to prioritize a future research and development agenda for combating biological acts of agro-terrorism directed against U.S. livestock and related produce. This report contains the papers submitted for the two-day conference, provides an overview of the findings and recommendations of the forum's breakout groups, and discusses the wider threat contingencies related to agro-terrorism
A framework for incorporating battlefield purpose and intelligence by James Bonomo( )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis involves a methodology for the development of stand-alone artificial intelligence programs for inclusion in a yet to be developed theatre level wargame for the Conventional Forces Analysis Division (CFAD) of the Force Structure, Resources, and Assessment Directorate (J-8) of The Joint Staff. It uniquely addresses some of the limitations observed in the Tactical Warfare Model (TACWAR), extending the current research effort at the Naval Postgraduate School. The artificial intelligence programs will simulate the decision making processes that a theatre level commander would make according to his perception of the environment, aware that his intelligence may be incomplete and possibly incorrect. The decision process is based on military doctrine derived from Clausewitz, Jomini and Napoleon, and involves allocating reconnaissance assets, acquiring and validating intelligence data, maneuvering forces, command and control, and assigning specific mission objectives.

Arms proliferation policy : support to the Presidential Advisory Board( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project provided the President's Advisory Board on Arms Proliferation Policy with background information and research on a number of topics, including a review of trends in the international arms market, instruments of restraint for use with weapons and weapons-related technologies, the economics of arms exports, and the implementation of arms and technology export-control regulations. This report documents the RAND research provided to the Board. As the document supporting the Report of the Presidential Advisory Board on Arms Proliferation Policy, this study does not contain overarching recommendations concerning arms proliferation policy. It does contain some analytical conclusions pertaining to the above issues. The Board neither endorses nor rejects the detailed aspects of the RAND study that follows below. In key areas of both policy and process, however, the RAND approach is consistent with the Board's thinking and findings
