It's a good idea whether you'd donating old work machines for recycling, or giving your home PC to a charity. In fact, we'd say wiping your drive clean is critical before that old PC leaves your home or office. Doing it at work can keep you out of jail, or at least lawsuits.

A primary objective of the Global Force Management Data Initiative is the deployment of a suite of information sources called organization servers (OS) that provide default organizational and forces structure data for the Department of Defense (DOD). The data in the OSs are produced and maintained by the agencies across the DOD who are responsible for this information. From the net-centric perspective, these seven sources are seven URLs on the Global Information Grid. A somewhat contentious...

Collection and analysis of foreign intelligence is, and will continue to be, a vital component of U.S. national security strategy. However, there is significant debate regarding whether our existing intelligence apparatus can sufficiently transform itself to meet the demands of the 21st century. The Department of Defense (DoD) has a vested interest in this debate - both as a customer and as a major supplier - because the goals of the National Military Strategy cannot be achieved in the absence...

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...

Detailed planning of complicated and multifaceted operations, often in crisis situations, is a way of life for the military. During crisis action planning, diverse staff elements must agree on a number of details for a successful plan to come together. As part of that process, staff elements must work together to assess the mission, evaluate the threat, review the forces available, and provide reasonable courses of action for the commander. Staff elements must complete several reports and...

In the last 10 years, the United States military has dealt with emerging counterinsurgencies in multiple operational theaters. To deal with the complex nature of counterinsurgency, organizational planning and operational processes increasingly focus on learning and adapting to a particular type of threat in a given environment. The developed processes help to increase the speed of the decision cycle in an attempt to retain the initiative and get the inside the insurgent's decision cycle. To do...

Disaster responders are exposed to continuous periods of intense stress, and as a consequence, some suffer mental or emotional adverse effects. In recognition of critical stress as a valid concern, many emergency service providers have attempted, organizationally, to provide their responders with access to traditional critical stress interventions. But when a catastrophic event occurs and mutual aid is invoked, disaster workers and volunteers will respond from diverse jurisdictions, frequently...

There are very few tasks in the Army more important than developing effective, competent leaders. As a significant part of this effort, the Army provides Field Manual (FM) 6-22, which establishes leadership doctrine and fundamental principles to guide leaders at all levels. In support of this important objective, the manual offers a comprehensive framework for leadership that explicitly outlines the highly valued characteristics and competencies all leaders are expected to aspire to and...

Military deployment can have profound effects on physical and mental health. Fewstudies have examined whether interventions prior to deployment can improvemechanisms underlying resilience. Mindfulness-based techniques have been shown to aid recovery from stress and may affect brain-behavior relationships prior to deployment. The authors examined the effect of mindfulness training on resilience mechanisms in active-duty Marines preparing for deployment. Eight Marine infantry platoons (N=281)...

The Military Health System (MHS) uses a variety of systems and processes to manage its most important asset its people. Chief among the systems employed to do this is the Defense Medical Human Resource System-internet (DMHRSi). DMHRSi has been fully operational for more than five years now, but the overall value of this system has not been assessed. In light of ongoing fiscal challenges, a new MHS governance structure, and a strategic shift toward Joint medical operations, now is the time to...

The expanded development and employment of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) places a disproportionate focus on the importance of technology over humans in airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations. The surge of airborne ISR in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2008 solidifies the importance of manned ISR aircraft and aircrews. Manned airborne ISR provides an indispensable combat capability because technology alone cannot replace the situational awareness, analytical...

Psychological fitness, as part of the Total Force Fitness (TFF) construct, is defined as the integration and optimization of cognitive processes and abilities, behaviors, and emotions to positively affect performance, well-being, and response to stress. These resilience factors can be thought of as antecedents of a complex process whereby individuals deal with stress. As such, they provide the foundation for psychological fitness. This report focuses on three categories of key resilience...

U.S. military personnel have been engaged in operations in Central Asia and the Middle East for the past decade. Members of the armed forces also deploy to other regions of the world. Many aspects of deployments have the potential to contribute to individual stress, such as uncertainty about deployment time lines; culture shock in theater; fear of or confrontation with death or physical injury; environmental challenges, such as extreme climates and geographical features; austere living...

Research has reported perceived barriers to care in military populations, but there have not been any studies to date that demonstrate the degree to which subjective barriers translate into lack of utilization. Moreover, studies of mental health service utilization have not examined patient beliefs and perceptions, instead focusing on characteristics such as race, gender, and socio-demographic variables. To our knowledge there have not been any systematic investigations into what soldiers...
