    Senior national security experts and former government officials convened by the Stimson Center issued a report outlining a new defense strategy that would advance America’s national security but still make it possible to cut about $50 billion from the Defense Department’s annual budget. The report describes 27 specific recommendations to implement the new strategy, called Strategic Agility, as an alternative to the across-the-board budget cuts required by sequestration. The report, titled “Strategic Agility: Strong National Defense for Today's Global and Fiscal Realities,” represents the consensus of Stimson’s 17-member Defense Advisory Committee and includes detailed options for how the Department of Defense can advance an updated defense strategy that maintains U.S. national security while meeting required budget levels. Committee members include two former vice chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a former Air Force chief of staff, a former chief of naval operations, and two retired four-star Army generals. At an event on Capitol Hill, Barry Blechman, Stimson Co-founder and Chairman of the Defense Advisory Committee was joined by retired General B.B. Bell and Phillip Odeen, former President and CEO of TRW, to present the report's findings.

          “I like working on some of our hardest national security problems, for which there isn’t a set solution, for which on has to be creative but also realistic. Among the challenges facing us now, for instance, are threats to information infrastructure and intellectual property.” Michael G. Vickers, a former member of Army Special Forces and CIA intelligence officer, is under secretary for intelligence at the U.S. Department of Defense. He is dedicated to defeating al Qaeda and developing the intelligence capabilities the United States will need for the twenty-first century.

            This project was delivered for Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC), as a part of InfoTech's system development & integration practice for Federal / Department of Defense. Metcast was an existing publish / subscription information distribution system for any form of arbitrary data (i.e. satellite images, sensor data, weather information, military logistic data, etc). InfoTech was approached by FNMOC to help the US Navy improve access to its existing Metcast Channels Data Distribution subscription system. The existing Metcast system was an issue for the Navy, because access to Metcast Channels was limited to personnel with technical knowledge of how to query Metcast Channels system (i.e. knowing proprietary query language). This limited the access and utilization of Metcast Channels to qualified US Navy personnel only. This video presents how InfoTech approached this challenge and delivered the project.

              “I want Americans to know that we wake up in the morning thinking about what we need to do to make sure the country is safe, and we go to bed at night wondering whether we’ve done enough.” A former governor of Arizona, Secretary Janet Napolitano was the first woman to win reelection to that post. As secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security, she strives to balance the need to protect Americans from terrorism, virtual and real, and to respond to such threats while respecting personal privacy.

                “Our technical edge is one of our advantages. But the real strength of our military is the people.

Today, we have the finest military in the world.” As under secretary of defense for policy from 2009 to 2012, Michèle Angelique Flournoy was the highest-ranking woman ever to serve at the Pentagon. In 2007, she cofounded the Center for New American Security (CNAS), dedicated to developing strong, pragmatic, and principled national security and defense policies.

                      Fourteen combat-wounded warriors continue to serve fellow soldiers and civilians alike in a University of South Florida School of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences research study funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. The project is evaluating how well different types of prosthetic feet work for the rigorous and agile maneuvers soldiers must perform on the battlefield – from running and jumping to dodging, crawling and climbing. The study will ultimately benefit civilian amputees with physically challenging occupations, such as firefighters and police officers, or anyone with physically-demanding recreational pursuits, says USF assistant professor Dr. Jason Highsmith, who is leading the study. The double-blind randomized trial enrolls 28 physically fit people - half are high-functioning amputee soldiers and veterans, the other 14 (the control group) are non-amputees, including accomplished civilian athletes and law enforcement officers.
