Future airpower: trends and implications for Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM)
A mature Special Operations Forces (SOF) capability requires dedicated Air and Aviation resources, yet the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) has not responded to the deepening operational relevance of Canadian SOF. In its ...
Been there, done that: Think ready, be ready
What if multiple brigades of deploying Soldiers suddenly needed combat uniforms? Meeting challenges such as this one, strategically and creatively, before a conflict arises is the true test of readiness for Army acquisition.
The impact of alcohol on mental health, physical fitness and job performance
(National Bureau of Economic Research, 2017-06)
We study the impact of legal access to alcohol on a range of behavioral and physical outcomes of U.S. Army soldiers in a regression discontinuity design. The wealth of novel data collected by the military on cognitive ...
Strategic interaction among overlapping local jurisdictions
This article explores the strategic interactions between overlapping counties and school districts within the context of property tax policy. Overlapping local governments share either part or all of their property tax ...
SAR ground-plane mover signatures for non-zero radar ascent
Recent spotlight synthetic aperture radar (SAR) analyses predict the two-dimensional (2D) range migration signature smears induced by targets with arbitrary motion in the ground-plane. These investigations were limited to ...
Economic assimilation and skill acquisition: evidence from the occupational sorting of childhood imiigrants
We study the economic assimilation of childhood immigrants to the United States. The linguistic distance between English and the predominant language in one’s country of birth interacted with age at arrival is shown to be ...
Development and testing of the intercept primitives for planar UAV engagement
With the advance in technologies and applications involving unmanned aerial systems cooperation among the autonomous agents within such an unmanned system as well as preparedness for responding to adversarial threat to ...
Towards prediction of environmental Arctic change
Our main objective is to use models of the coupled ice-ocean Arctic environment to understand the past and present sea ice and ocean states and to predict future scenarios of environmental change in the Arctic Ocean. To ...
Towards a high-resolution global coupled navy prediction system
A computational project is underway to bring about the realization of a high-resolution global coupled atmosphere/ocean/ice prediction system for Navy meteorological and oceanographic forecasting. A fully coupled ...
High resolution simulations of Arctic Sea ice, 1979-1993
To evaluate improvements in modelling Arctic sea ice, we compare results from two regional models at 1/120 horizontal resolution. The first is a coupled ice-ocean model of the Arctic Ocean, consisting of an ocean model ...
