What’s The Armed Service And What Role Should It Fulfill?

The term “military” or “defence” can be used in a person sense in respect of a single soldier and what methods the person soldier takes to defend himself corresponding to; wearing protective gear, utilizing armaments or setting up safety reminiscent of a digging a trench or a foxhole.

Defence is essentially a term used when describing a navy unit’s defensive tactics when working against an opposing forces offensive, perhaps by seeking to circumnavigate the enemy position, delay an enemy attack or to wage a struggle of attrition whereby the enemy will lose numbers eventually permitting the defensive force to form a defensive position or carry out an offensive maneuver.

As anyone who pays attention to Military News In military operations planning, a defensive strategy is the coverage of preventing an attack, or minimizing the damage of an attack, by the forces assuming defense in strategic depth for preventing an enemy from conquering territory. Within the scope of a national protection policy, defense is used to include most navy issues.

The Vietcong employed each regular military models and guerrilla units so as to battle an offensive and defensive strategy. By the use of smaller cellular guerrilla forces the Vietcong waged a conflict on the assets of the American troopers, which included destroying provides and provide routes. They also used the Individuals resources when producing booby traps, including discarded gadgets akin to tin cans in addition to unexploded bombs which they would acquire and use for mines. These

Finally the efforts of the smaller cellular defensive guerrillas induced such an effect that the principle army was able to overrun the American forces with a massive assault know as the Tet Offensive.  Nowhere is this instance more outlined than within the Cold Battle stand offs of the mid to late twentieth century. One specific example of this is the Cuban Missile Disaster which involved the US and the Soviet Union in 1962. The Soviet and Cuban authorities had positioned nuclear weapons on Cuba as seen by American reconnaissance planes and, with the tension between the two nations already palpable, a standoff ensued with the ‘very actual’ threat of a nuclear conflict occurring. Fortunately diplomatic proceedings ensured that the crisis was settled comparatively amicably with the dismantling of the weaponry and a no-invasion agreement in place from the American authorities. And thank goodness, CBRN was not an issue at the time.

The role of military defence has been gradually shifted away from its primary role of providing security to enhancing commercial interest. With industrial growth and advancement of science and technology, the defence production led to a market oriented producer- purchaser relation between the developed and developing countries.The poor nation afflicted with conflicts became a super market for defence deals. For the powerful, military prowess which was earlier synonymous with political power has become a trademark of economic power. They had access to all types of weaponry including UAV technology which allowed them to flex their power.

The world community is now wiser and is conscious of the larger threat of survival posed by using up resources. They campaign for pooled resources through collective efforts to save mankind and the world from further depletion. Resources are scarce and even scarcer with rising population particularly in poor countries which are already afflicted with hunger, illiteracy and joblessness. For these countries, the preparation for an impending war, which may never occur, is a sheer wastage of precious resource in terms of man, money and material.

The political compulsions may tempt the authority to take pride in the strength of the defence force. The military men take great pride in themselves as the defenders of the country. With due respect and regard to the defence services, I have a considered opinion to express. I think military might is an outdated notion of exalting the national self esteem. Recent history of military powers have evidenced the fatality of this approach. The pride of the nation is in the human asset and any nation that failed to nurture its most precious asset will lose its national pride even if it owns the most sophisticated war weapons to erase the entire human race.

Big defence budgets in the developed world may entail an economic investment return out of defence production and sale exports. But how long can this go on? For poor countries, big defence budget produces a negative return, and hits the belly of the poor as his pie is taken away with every military purchase.In the new age, the defence security trade mark will diminish as more focus is now on economic security and sustainability of the future. The creative and innovative thinking to meet the future challenges will be a supreme consideration while war weapons will be valueless in the approaching apocalypse. More on this topic at Eisenhower. For instance, they might become Natural Disaster response companies, or design a Planetary Defense system to stop an incoming asteroid. It’s still defense in many regards. Maybe they would go out and stop Cyclones, Hurricanes, and typhoons.

Still, it’s almost a pipe dream to talk about anyway, especially in the present period because let’s face it wars are not going away anytime soon. So we could easily be 100 or 200 years from now before humans stop having wars. And right now we have a bigger problem anyway and that is international terrorism and the prospects of a rogue nation state giving nuclear weapons to terrorists. We definitely need a defense system to track, and stop such terrorist events, especially on soft targets.

Further, I don’t see nations with nukes as so bad, more I am worried about lunatic dictators, or terrorists having them. I’d rather the world didn’t have nuclear weapons at all, but since so many nations do, and more will soon follow, I very much doubt any nation will get rid of them, because they will want to be able to protect themselves, against the last nation that refuses to get rid of them. Now then, my acquaintance states the obvious;

In my personal library I have almost a whole row of books on the topic of nuclear proliferation, the Cold War, and many reports put forth during the Cold War by the Rand Corporation. I believe it is scary stuff, and it’s quite unfortunate, but it is what it is and we must deal with it without blinders. Please consider all this and think on it. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns you may e-mail me. I will not accept e-mails from anti-nuclear power activists.

Armed service information web sites: All you want to know

Many people wonder – What is a learning portal? Presently, it seems that everyone seems to be finding ways to package and repackage information, but often there are actually important pieces missing from the equation. For example, considering the current social, cultural and political climate, many people would like to learn about the different aspects life that they don’t readily understand. For those of you up to the task of creating a relevant portal or learning facility there are a few things that you must take into account. This informative article breaks down the details for you using an air force portal to give an example. A Military Defence learning portal should have military articles that learn about different facets of military air defence. These articles could very well be free or paid but either way they need to cover all relevant topics in a fashion that is informative and discursive. Headlines should be short and engaging – much the same as is warranted in a newspaper. As far as film content, military videos should feature experts from various ranks of the military who are willing and able to share opinions and best practices. They should be willing to give case studies in an effort to ensure that students or users make the most of their presentations.

Some topics at these events include armoured vehicles, air defence and maritime security. Often a military forum where editors or contributors can conduct a military review of new technology is included. This also makes it easy to get ideas for new content as contributors are able to give timely input that will inform the editorial direction of the portal. These are typically only some of the tactics that organizations have proven to work to tackle the creation of learning portals. While this article uses military defence as an example, there is most assuredly the opportunity transfer these lessons to other disciplines such as Close Air Support with strong positive impact. Once your webblog has been created, the next move is marketing that site and sharing it with your target market.

Before you do this however,You must understand and find out how to write a great blog. Here are a handful of superb advice. One thing we have noticed in on content websites is that when people write a vague topic title for a forum post, it gets very little response. Whenever people are very clear and distinct about what they need or what they’re talking about, they often get a lot of responses. The same holds true with blogging Military Articles. You haveve got precious few moments to grab someone’s attention. Lead with a useful and grabbing title. The very first paragraph is all most people will give you to convince them to read, so if you’re going to use the above-mentioned method, be sure that you show people what they’re going to get from the post in that same paragraph.

Here’s a good example from a recent post of mine: I had a strange dream last night, but oddly, it had a lesson in it. I dreamed that I went to a place to sell wool. There was one buyer. They decided whether my product was worth buying. Then, they turned it into yarn. They carded it, they dyed it, they put it on different spools and sold it to hundreds of people. By beginning with a description of a dream, I had created you opening up your creative head. By letting you know that it was a dream of business, I told you that the post was going to be about business. And hopefully, the effect was that it got you further in the story. The rest of the piece’s job was easy: reinforce and educate.

If a chair’s pretty but you can’t sit on it, it’s peanuts of a chair, is it? (Oh artists, you may begin bristling now.) Explain the notion, and then help people start to see how they can apply it to themselves. In a post about how to blog effectively, I’d explain that this formula, for example it is, helps people move towards actionable next steps, if you’re lucky enough to lay it out like that. Oh, and I’d point out that transitional sentences like this one help you move from the explanation into the actionable steps.

Try doing something like this:

  • Pick a topic
  • Come up with a title (it’s okay if you redo the title after the fact)
  • Find a graphic to accompany the piece ( I use Flickr for this).
  • Write a first paragraph that both explains the piece and/or tells us a story to do so. (This might take practice.)
  • Write the first main point and explain it to us. Make the best one come first. Don’t build us up to it.
  • Repeat if you have multiple points.
  • Give us actionable takeaways or a call to action.
  • Wrap up the piece however you want that call to action to go

I’ve been writing in some form or another for over 35 years (if you count my beginnings at age 5). I started winning awards for writing in high school. But it wasn’t until some time after 9/11 that I started getting decent at writing, and it wasn’t until around 2005 or so that I started convincing other human beings that I had a thing that might be useful.

When inspiration for a post strikes, scribble it down in a notebook or a word file. For many bloggers and content creators, finding the topic to write about takes up half the time. Keeping an idea list lets you leap in to a new post quickly when you’re ready to write.

If you try to force yourself to come up with supporting information for your brilliant idea right away, it’s going to take ages. Let that topic sit for a few days, though, and you can add new ideas as they occurs to you – and when you’re ready to write, you’ll already have all the supporting info you need

You’ve probably got twice as many ideas as you need at this point, so it’s time to be brutal. Cut out any supporting idea that doesn’t fit with the main topic of the article. Remember, we’re talking about how to write an article in 20 minutes, not an epic. You can always use the ideas you don’t need for later posts. If you find that you’re stuck, don’t try to force the words to come. Save the article and work on something else for awhile. If inspiration strikes, open up that document again. You can even switch from one blog post to another, spending a few minutes on each as ideas comes to you. It’s a huge time-saver.

It’s tempting, when you look through your list of ideas, to save the best ones for later because you think they’ll be easier to write. You don’t want to save time later, you want to save time now. Do the articles you know will come easily and make the most of that time.

The above methodology has served me well for a very long time in blogging, and it might prove useful to your efforts. Once you’ve practiced it a while, you could tweak and modify it to meet your own needs. Heck, you might have an even better method you’d like to prescribe below in the comments. I’m all for it. But that which you see above is roughly how I do what I do. I hope it proves useful.

We’re a short while off from launching it, but it will offer some great interviews, a writing course, some accountability, some workshopping of your pieces (not just blog posts, mind you), and other related information. I think that writing has become so much more important for most jobs than it’s ever been, so this is one way that I can help out. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you’re working on, what you find challenging, and what would be useful in a course of that kind.

Also, remember to optimize. Pictures need to load very quickly as you only have a persons attention for a very short time before they bounce. Your picture is the first thing to load, and it took and incredible amount of time to load. This could cause you to loose a lot of readers even if your content is fantastic. Images need to load in a matter of seconds, and a good size is 72 dpi. If you are taking them straight from Flickr then they are not optimized properly to load. They are optimized to be printed much bigger with very high dpi (dots per inch). Your image choice was good.

As for what I find challenging, I used really bad post-anxiety. I would sit at the computer and my mind would be a blank. No ideas or post topics. Then I started planning posts in advance and it became much easier. Right now I’ve got Ncbi posts planned about a month in advance and it makes me feel so much better knowing that I have enough ideas up my sleeve to fill a whole month.

Avionics for Success

When plane mechanics plan new avionics installations or avionics modifications for an aircraft, the technicians and Military Technology managers will likely be introduced with the proposed installation. Their opinions are valuable.. This can go in the direction of improving the reliability and maintainability of an installation. While there are different definitions, avionics essentially refers to anything that concerns aeronotics and astronautics.Avionics includes all types of aircrafts.The easiest approach to describe it is as electronic circuits and units of an aerospace vehicle. At present cockpit electronics have turn out to be subtle sufficient to all but take the place of the pilot. At present’s cockpit resembles a flying video arcade: computers and video displays are quick replacing the jumble of gauges, dials and switches that for decades distinguished the modern jetliner.

Three American companies dominate the industry today: Bendix/King, a division of the Allied Sign Aerospace Firm; Collins Avionics, a division of the Rockwell Worldwide Corporation, and Honeywell Inc. All three are having fun with record growth. The main overseas challenge to America’s dominance is coming from France. The amount of American electronics on Airbus jets is shrinking. Though Japanese electronics may fill American households, they’re nearly absent from airline cockpits. Japanese companies provide only the semiconductor chips and different components.

The business’s most dramatic advance came in the late 1970’s with the advent of the computerized ”glass” cockpit Laptop equipment became small and light-weight enough to carry aloft. Engineers consolidated dozens of instruments onto six computer-backed cathode-ray tubes. Pilots may examine altitude, pace and path on video displays slightly than the more temperamental mechanical gauges. The case is not the same for Military Defence companies. For communications, radios that failed just about every 2,500 hours, on common, have been replaced with models that last 12,000 hours. The most important benefit of the glass cockpit is that the black containers can communicate to one another. It’s important that that this be a feature of all aircraft. Black boxes exist to give data about how the aircraft functions and if it can’t communicate well with the other technology in the aircraft’s cockpit then this makes it very difficult to investigate issues.

This is important especially when planes are flying at Military Events and exhibitions. The on-board computer systems can determine an altitude for the greatest gas efficiency and the autopilot can guide the plane there.The Common Cockpit Initiative (CCI) would mean all aircraft have basically the same cockpit; all the instruments would be in the same place, the seats in the same place, in fact nearly everything would be the sameThis would make learning to manage an airplain an easier task for beginers. (Of course, if we think about how much air traffic this would create we might change our minds!)This would be great news for my little brother since he’s already convinced he can fly!

This would be a huge acheivement on many other levelsThis would make virtual Reality training easy in simulators and allow for maximum efficiency and save lives, as the human component would never be confused and thus fewer mistakes would be made in unfamiliar cockpits under extreme stress during incidents, under fire or during equipment failure. If we think about it like this it makes sense – If we borrow a friend’s car we are constantly looking for where stuff is, where is the hood release, fuel hatch release and how the hell do I turn off this G-Dang windshield wiper?It would be quite challenging to drive another car without geting to know it first. As machines get more complicated and humans become more brain dead due to bad use of natural selection, we will need counter these issues with better designed standardization such is being done in the CCI.Similar cockpits are definitely the way to go. Cost aside, this should definitely be a focus of the military aircraft manufacturers. Because of the disagreements between manufacturers about whether to go forward with with one unified cockpit design plan. However there still remains a huge question mark around the issue of whether the avionics manufacturers will be able or willing to agree on what the general cockpit of a plane should resemble. Some aircraft manufacturers have begun to bring this unified approach to fruition. However, it is rather challenging. The outcome remains to be seen.

In the avionics market, there are really very few things that are kept secret or hush-hush. Many of the expertise is developed within the army and shortly enters the public domain. A product’s shelf life is shrinking, as companies play technological leapfrog. With most of their gross sales dependent on the booming business airplane business, the avionics makers have turn out to be much less vulnerable to defense cuts. ”These firms may be like chameleons, shifting from protection to business products,” mentioned Paul Nisbet, an analyst with Prudential-Bache Inc.Continued growth and evolution of technology is necessary for them to survive. The avionics and aeronitics industry is as they say a “dog eat dog” world where only the strong firms survive.. Throughout all the years, this much has never changed about the avionics industry.
