Explosive ordnance disposal Marines with Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron conducted emergency destruct training at Target Island, Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, July 14, 2017.The training allows the Marines to prepare for unexpected aircraft incidents involving explosive hazards or gasoline bombs.“

“If there’s an aircraft incident on the installation, we need to know how to handle the explosive threats and deal with them accordingly,” said U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Chaz West, an explosive ordnance disposal technician with H&HS. “That’s what we were practicing here today.”

The EOD Marines trained to safely mitigate the explosive hazards found on aircraft.

“There are a lot of kids, dependents and military personnel here,” said U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Larue Martin, an explosive ordnance disposal technician with H&HS. “We want to them to be able to live and properly execute their mission in a safe environment. Our job is to make sure that happens.”

The Marines spent the day burying explosive devices in sand and remotely detonating them from a bunker. Twenty pounds of composition 4, also known as C4, were used for each explosion set throughout the exercise.

EOD training is conducted on a regular basis, typically once or twice a month, to prepare for various ordeals.

“Every time we go to the island, it’s different,” said Martin. “Sometimes we run improvised explosive device scenarios, or we’ll bring out our tool kit to familiarize ourselves with the equipment and the procedures to use those tools properly and efficiently. Our job is so big and broad that we have a lot we need to familiarize ourselves with and be proficient at.”

EOD uses C4 as its primary explosive in training for incidents that involve aircraft mishaps or other bomb-related events.

“C4 is easy to manipulate, and it’s a plastic explosive, so it’s easier to use in case you need to mold it to a certain shape,” said Martin. “It’s our premier explosive we use to get rid of any kind of explosive hazard.”

Martin said his favorite part about the training was getting down and dirty and being hands-on with actual explosives. More importantly, he likes the opportunity to refresh the skills his job requires.

“These are perishable skills, so you need to be able to practice them often to be proficient at it,” said Martin. “I always like coming out here and doing my job.”

MTACS-38 DEPLOYS A LIGHT-WEIGHT, AMPHIBIOUS AVIATION COMMAND POST DURING EXERCISE HYDRA 1-17

18 Jul 2017

By Cpl. Harley Robinson, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

MARINE CORPS AIR STATION MIRAMAR, Cali. --

Marine Tactical Air Command Squadron (MTACS) 38 conducted exercise HYDRA 1-17 to simulate ship-to-shore employment of a Tactical Air Direction Center (TADC) and integrate it with a simulated Navy tactical air control center (NTACC), at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California, June 5-8.

A TADC is a task-organized facility that can perform all or most of the Marine tactical air command center (Marine TACC) tasks, such as coordinating the delivery of supplies, people or ordnance and synchronizing the actions of all Marine aviation assets in the area of operations, but is employed in a subordinate role.

During HYDRA 1-17, MTACS Headquarters acted as the NTACC that was afloat, and sequentially employed two TADCs, each with different sizes and capabilities, to East Miramar training area.

This evolution is not a new concept: Marine TADCs were employed during the Vietnam conflict, but have not employed ship-to-shore in combat since the 1950 Inchon invasion during the Korean War.

The first time MTACS-38 employed a TADC was during Weapons and Tactics Instructor Training 1-17, in October 2016.

Exercise HYDRA 1-17 proved the concept that an MTACS can perform the capabilities of a fully functional but smaller TADC, capable of being embarked on and lifted from an L-class ship while maintaining all required capabilities to support a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) or Amphibious Ready Group –Marine Expeditionary Unit.

“A smaller expeditionary TADC capability, one that ties in all the agencies of the Marine Air Command and Control System and/or host nation partner, and effectively integrates with the NTACC or a Marine TACC afloat, has the potential to significantly increase the effectiveness, information sharing, safety, and commander’s ability to influence a situation during amphibious operations,” said Capt. Tywan Turner, MTACS-38, weapons and tactics training program officer.

A small TADC can be employed early in an amphibious operation. It can move to a new location as the situation develops and it can later scale up into a larger and more capable TADC or even a TACC with additional assets. The scalability of it gives the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) aviation command element (ACE) commander multiple flexible options to choose from to facilitate his/her command and control requirements, according to Lt. Col. James K. McBride, commanding officer of MTACS-38.

“The shortfall this TADC capability addresses is that, while today’s MACCS provides effective ACE control for all-sized MAGTFs, it does not currently offer an effective command capability for MEB ACEs afloat,” McBride added. “The TADC, working with the NTACC and ACE Marines afloat, provides a robust and flexible command ability for the MEB ACE commander.”

After being employed ashore, the TADC can gradually build up capability via equipment and personnel to take on the TACC role from the NTACC, and airspace management functions can be officially passed from the Navy afloat to the Marines ashore.

“The size of the TADC is not dependent on the size of the MAGTF it supports,” said Turner. “Size is based on the capabilities that it provides and the number of sorties it is required to manage or generate. The capabilities determine what equipment, personnel, external support and number of coordinators are needed for the mission, whether a Marine Expeditionary Unit, MEB or MEF is employed in theater.”

The second phase of HYDRA 1-17 involved the Marines tearing down the first site and echeloning to a second objective area and building a larger TADC to support bigger and more persistent operations.

As control phased from the ship to the first TADC, the NTACC delegated a limited set of command and control authorities which enabled the TADC to command humanitarian assistance and tactical recovery missions ashore. As Marines conducted tear-down and echeloned to the second location, all authorities temporarily went back to the ship during the move.

After the larger TADC was built and became operational, the Marines were faced with obstacles from the notional White Cell consisting of ‘bug pilots,’ which are Marines with radios simulating higher, adjacent and subordinate agencies. The replication is to help simulate commanding those agencies in an actual combat zone.

The Marines conducted training in how to respond to enemy attacks, aircraft mishaps, coordinating the recovery of injured personnel, processing immediate requests, and keeping communication open between the simulated air and ground units.

The lessons learned from HYDRA 1-17 will be applied during future training.

A medium-sized configuration of a TACC at MCAS Yuma, Arizona, will be established, while they will simultaneously execute an actual ship-to-shore movement and set up a lighter, more expeditionary configuration of a subordinate TADC in the vicinity of Camp Pendleton.

“The next step is to produce detailed documentation of everything we’ve learned so far to codify, discuss and refine our concepts,” Turner added. “As a MTACS community, it’s imperative that we build sustainable inter-service training opportunities to integrate Marine and Navy aviation command and control.”

THE FALSE REALITY TO TAKE CONTROL ALL OVER THE WORLD AND TO DESTROY JUDEO-CHRISTIANS VALUES (PERSECUTION) IN THE NAME OF PEACE AND SECURITY

UN SECURITY COUNCIL SLAPS SANCTIONS ON ISLAMIC STATE

World
July 21, 9:04 UTC+3

THE UNITED NATIONS, July 20. /TASS/. The United Nations Security Council has extended sanctions against the Islamic State (IS) and Al-Qaeda (both terror organizations outlawed in Russia) by blacklisting eight individuals and companies. A US-drafted resolution was adopted unanimously on Thursday.

Four more names will be added the ISIL & Al-Qaida Sanctions List, that includes over 250 individuals, groups and organizations linked to the IS and Al-Qaeda. These are Malik Barkhanoev and Murad Margoshvili who are on the Russian wanted list and are taking part in fights in Iraq and Syria within terror groups, as well as two Indonesians, one of whom - Bahrum Naim - is said to be the organizer of the January 14, 2006 Jakarta terrorist acts.

Besides, two financial organizations-Iraq’s Selselat al Thahab Money Exchange and Syria’s Hanifa Money Exchange Office that cooperated with the IS and two terror groups currently operating in Syria - the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army and Jund al-Aqsa - were added to the list.

The Jund al-Aqsa terrorists took part in the massacre at the village of Ma’an which was mostly inhabited by Alawites - followers of Alawite Islam, to whom Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad belongs. According to the resolution, the listed individuals and organizations are subject to an assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.

The document adopted by the Security Council unites the provisions of many resolutions devoted to the fight against terrorism. In particular, it stresses the necessity to suppress financing of groups and organizations that are on the UN lists, as well as exchange information about individuals involved in terrorist activities.

Not all of Russia’s proposals taken account of

After the vote, Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Vladimir Safronkov said that the resolution "was an important step to strengthen the anti-terrorism regime."

"Now all the member countries without any exception need to implement fully and dutifully the clauses of that milestone decision by the UN Security Council. There can be no double standards," he said.

Nonetheless, he regretted that the resolution "has not taken account of concerns of the Security Council’s members’," and it did not include Russia’s proposal to impose a total ban on any trade and economic ties with the areas controlled by Islamic State.

"One should be aware that terrorists are engaged in large-scale smuggling of hydrocarbons and other goods across the border. Illegal business fetches tens of millions of dollars to them monthly. Terrorists funnel the money to buy weapons and ammunition and that hinders any forcible activities," Safronkov said.

Russia will continue insisting on this and other measures "aimed at full financial and logistic isolation of terrorist groups."

Meanwhile, China’s Ambassador Liu Jieyi, who chairs the UN Security Council in July, urged the nations to coordinate their efforts against terrorism.

"We hope that both the states and UN Secretariat will strictly comply with the resolutions and continue cooperation with the committee [UN Security Council’s ISIL (Da'esh) & Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee] so that we all can ensure efficiency of the sanctions," the diplomat said.

UK’s Ambassador Mathew Rycroft noted that the terrorists mentioned in the resolution were from Russia and Indonesia, which proved that a global response was needed to the threat.

NATO AGREES ON E. EUROPEAN ROTATIONAL TROOPS AT WARSAW SUMMIT 

By: Jaroslaw Adamowski, July 8, 2016 (Photo Credit: NIDS/NATO Multimedia Library, NATO)

WARSAW, Poland — NATO leaders agreed to deploy four multinational battalions to Poland and the three Baltic States in a bid to show the alliance’s readiness to contain an increasingly bellicose Russia. The plan was agreed July 8 at the summit in Poland’s capital Warsaw.

NATO will deploy troops to Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia with the aim to strengthen the alliance’s military presence on its eastern flank.

"We have decided to enhance our military presence in the eastern part of the alliance with four battalions here in Poland, as well as in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on a rotational basis," Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s secretary-general, said at a press conference here on July 8. "These battalions will be robust and multinational to demonstrate the strength of the Atlantic bond."

The announcement confirms an earlier announcement by Stoltenberg who said at a press conference in Brussels on June 13 that NATO will deploy about 4,000 troops to the designed battalions.

Under the alliance’s strategy, Canada will be the framework nation for Latvia, Germany will perform this role for Lithuania, the UK will be Estonia’s framework nation, and the US will serve in this capacity for Poland, Stoltenberg said.

The secretary-general said that the alliance is seeking a constructive dialog with Moscow. A meeting of the NATO-Russia Council is scheduled to be held at the ambassadorial level in Brussels on July 13.

NATO, Russia to Meet After Warsaw Summit


"Russia should not, and cannot be isolated," Stoltenberg said.

The decision comes amid increased concern by NATO’s Eastern European countries over Russia’s intervention in Ukraine and the subsequent annexation of the Ukrainian Crimean peninsula. As a result, a number of political leaders from the region have called on the alliance to deploy additional troops to Eastern Europe as a safeguard against Russia’s potential aggression.

At the Warsaw Summit Experts’ Forum, an event accompanying the summit on July 8, some of these concerns were voiced by Polish President Andrzej Duda who said that the "annexation of Crimea and the war in Donbas, terrorism and mass migrations have shattered our perception of the system’s stability."

"This is why NATO must show unity and solidarity," Duda said.

IDF REINFORCES TROOPS IN WEST BANK FOR FRIDAY PRAYERS
ByAnna Ahronheim, JPOST.COM STAFF
July 20, 2017 12:18

The IDF is sending more troops to the area as Friday prayers are expected to elevate tensions around the holy site.

With tensions high on and around the Temple Mount following last week’s terrorist attack, the army has placed five extra battalions on alert in the West Bank ahead of Friday prayers.

Police will also continue to secure the area along with the reinforcement of thousands of special police forces.

Should the situation change, the battalions may be released, the IDF said on Thursday.

The announcement that thousands of extra troops are being placed on call comes as security services gear up for expected clashes in Jerusalem and the West Bank on Friday amid expectations a large number of Muslim worshipers will try to make their way to the Temple Mount.
 



On Thursday afternoon, a Palestinian man was shot and killed by Israeli troops in the West Bank village of Tuqu near the settlement of Tekoa after he attempted to stab soldiers at a checkpoint.

No troops were hurt.

Last week’s terrorist attack on the Temple Mount left two police officers dead and resulted in the government placing metal detectors at the entrances to the site.

Clashes broke out in the West Bank on Wednesday after Fatah announced a “day of rage,” encouraging Palestinians to demonstrate against the metal detectors.

Palestinian Red Crescent reported three injuries from live fire near Kalandiya after dozens of youths who were marching toward the checkpoint near Ramallah began to throw stones at Israeli forces.

Israel claims the detectors are necessary to prevent further attacks, but worshipers and Arab states have condemned the move, claiming it constitutes a change in the status quo.

Under the status quo, Israel controls access to and security at the site, and Jordan – through the Wakf Islamic trust – administers activities inside the compound.

According to former Shin Bet head MK Yaakov Perry (Yesh Atid), while the “situation is very fragile and sensitive,” the placing of metal detectors does not constitute a change in the status quo.

“Every holy, sensitive place in the world is protected,” he said, adding that “there is no hermetic proof – not for intelligence and not for physical security means – but, after this terrorist act, I think the conclusion to tighten the security belt and add these electronic gates was not a political decision but purely a security one.” •

WASHINGTON, July 21, 2017 — Winning wars with computer algorithms and artificial intelligence were among the topics that Defense Department intelligence officials discussed during a recent Defense One Tech Summit here.



A stand-alone exhibit titled, “Innovations in Defense: Artificial Intelligence and the Challenge of Cybersecurity,” features Pittsburgh-based team ForAllSecure’s Mayhem Cyber Reasoning System. The system took first place at the August 2016 Cyber Grand Challenge finals, beating out six other computers. The Mayhem CRS is now on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. The exhibit was produced by the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. The exhibit will run through Sept. 17, 2017. DoD photo

Presenters included Marine Corps Col. Drew Cukor, chief of the Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Function Team in the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Operations Directorate-Warfighter Support in the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence.

By the end of the calendar year, the department will field advanced computer algorithms onto government platforms to extract objects from massive amounts of moving or still imagery, Cukor said in his remarks.

People and computers will work symbiotically to increase the ability of weapon systems to detect objects,” Cukor added. “Eventually we hope that one analyst will be able to do twice as much work, potentially three times as much, as they're doing now. That's our goal.”

A computer algorithm is a set of rules to be followed during problem-solving operations. Cukor described an algorithm as about 75 lines of Python code “placed inside a larger software-hardware container.”

He said the immediate focus is 38 classes of objects that represent the kinds of things the department needs to detect, especially in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Project Maven

The effort to help a workforce increasingly overwhelmed by incoming data, including millions of hours of video, began in April when then-Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work announced in a memo that he was establishing an Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Functional Team, overseen by the undersecretary of defense for intelligence, to work on something he called Project Maven.

“As numerous studies have made clear, the department of defense must integrate artificial intelligence and machine learning more effectively across operations to maintain advantages over increasingly capable adversaries and competitors,” Work wrote.

“Although we have taken tentative steps to explore the potential of artificial intelligence, big data and deep learning,” he added, “I remain convinced that we need to do much more and move much faster across DoD to take advantage of recent and future advances in these critical areas.”

Project Maven focuses on computer vision -- an aspect of machine learning and deep learning -- that autonomously extracts objects of interest from moving or still imagery, Cukor said. Biologically inspired neural networks are used in this process, and deep learning is defined as applying such neural networks to learning tasks.
“This effort is an announcement … that we're going to invest for real here,” he said.

Working With Industry

Rapidly delivering artificial intelligence to a combat zone won’t be easy, Cukor said.

There is no ‘black box’ that delivers the AI system the government needs, at least not now,” he said. “Key elements have to be put together … and the only way to do that is with commercial partners alongside us.”

Work to be accomplished over the next few months includes triaging and labeling data so the algorithms can be trained, the colonel explained.

They are also the means by which the effects of air and space operations are measured. Air Force photo

That work is inherently governmental and so we have a large group of people -- sophisticated analysts and engineers -- who are going through our data and cleaning it up. We also have a relationship with a significant data-labeling company that will provide services across our three networks -- the unclassified and the classified networks -- to allow our workforce to label our data and prepare it for machine learning,” Cukor said.

The department has a significant effort ongoing to procure computational power, including graphic processing units that allow training of machine-learning algorithms, he said. An algorithmic development contract also is in process -- the department will go through a competitive selection process to find vendors that can provide algorithms against DoD data.

You don't buy AI like you buy ammunition,” he added. “There's a deliberate workflow process and what the department has given us with its rapid acquisition authorities is an opportunity for about 36 months to explore what is governmental and [how] best to engage industry [to] advantage the taxpayer and the warfighter, who wants the best algorithms that exist to augment and complement the work he does.”

Other aspects of the work include integrating and fielding the algorithms, and once an algorithm is on a platform it must be optimized over its lifecycle, Cukor said.

AI Arms Race

We are in an AI arms race,” Cukor said. “ … It's happening in industry [and] the big five Internet companies are pursuing this heavily. Many of you will have noted that Eric Schmidt [executive chairman of Alphabet Inc.] is calling Google an AI company now, not a data company.”

The colonel described the technology available commercially, the state-of-the-art in computer vision, as “frankly … stunning,” thanks to work in the area by researchers and engineers at Stanford University, the University of California-Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a $36 billion investment last year across commercial industry.

No area will be left unaffected by the impact of this technology,” he added.

For now, many tasks, like computer vision, are ready for AI capabilities and many are not, Cukor said, noting that “AI will not be selecting a target [in combat] … any time soon. What AI will do is compliment the human operator.”

Before deploying algorithms to combat zones, Cukor said, “you've got to have your data ready and you've got to prepare and you need the computational infrastructure for training.”

Also needed are algorithm developers and software engineers, he said, an interface must be developed between AI and human operators, and ultimately integration and optimization will be needed over the deployment lifecycle.

All of these things have got to be put in harmony over the next 36 months as we move down this path,” Cukor said.

CHINESE ARMY MOBILIZES MILITARY ASSETS TO TIBET FOLLOWING LIVE FIRE DRILLS

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) mobilized thousands of ground vehicles and other military equipment as the standoff between Chinese and Indian troops near the disputed area of Sikkim continues, according to a report from the PLA Daily.

PLA Daily is widely considered the main outlet the Chinese army uses for external communications, LiveMint notes.

The report did not specify the exact date the military assets were relocated to Tibet but said it occurred at the end of June. The unspecified military "hardware" was transported via rail and conventional roads.

China to Trim Its Army: What Could Be Behind the Move?

It’s not entirely clear where in Tibet the chess pieces have been placed. The report also failed to indicate whether the military equipment would be used in tandem with a Chinese battalion that recently completed drills in Tibet, China’s second-largest province.

Last weekend, the PLA conducted live fire exercises in the province. Video footage of the drills was broadcast over CCTV. Analysts said the move would show the people of China the government is ready to protect them in the event that the standoff becomes more heated and violent.

Reinforcing the western front with personnel and hardware makes it much easier for commanders to defend Chinese borders, Wang Dehua of the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies told LiveMint on Wednesday. Offensive and defensive maneuvers are "all about logistics," Wang said, and "now there is much better logistics support to the Tibet region."

The dispute in Sikkim originated in mid-June when Indian troops stopped Chinese workers from building a road that Beijing said was on its territory. Bhutan claimed that the particular area where construction took place was actually its territory, and India sided with Bhutan.

The area where the road was being built is of significant strategic importance to New Delhi. A finished road could provide Chinese troops with an avenue to sever India’s access to its northeastern states.

A recent article in the Indian Defense Review argued that further espionage between India and China might actually be key to resolving the crisis. "The two countries are ignorant of each other’s strategies," Nicolas Groffman wrote. As a result, suspicion is "taking the place of intelligence just when understanding is critical."

Vasily Kashin told Sputnik China, however, that such activities ought to have strict limits if stabilizing effects are to be achieved. Intelligence operations would cross a critical threshold if "active intervention in the internal affairs or acts of sabotage" were used, Kashin emphasized.

PRESIDENT TRUMP COMMISSIONS USS GERALD R. FORD (CVN 78)

Story Number: NNS170722-01Release Date: 7/22/2017 5:33:00 PM   

By Ens. Corey Todd Jones

NORFOLK (NNS) -- President Donald J. Trump commissioned the aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) at a commissioning ceremony July 22.

A commissioning is a day of celebration, and honors the dedication, team work, and collaboration of Sailors, legislators, shipbuilders, program managers, and the ship's sponsor in delivering the ship to the fleet.

Trump landed on the flight deck in Marine One and was greeted by Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Acting Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson, and USS Gerald R. Ford Commanding Officer Capt. Rick McCormack.
Over 10,000 friends and family members attended the event, watching the festivities from the hangar bay, the pier and USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69).

Distinguished members of the party offered remarks to honor the occasion.

"Wherever this vessel cuts through the horizon, our allies will rest easy and our enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that America is coming and America is coming strong," said Trump. "Our true strength is our people. Our greatest weapon is all of you. Our nation endures because we have citizens who love America and who are willing to fight for America."

He continued, "We are so very blessed with warriors who are willing to serve America in the greatest fighting force in history, the United States military. Today this ship officially begins its role in the noble military history of our great nation."

Stackley also addressed the crowd.

"So skipper, as we marvel at the technology and the daunting numbers that measure this ship, never lose sight that in times of crisis, you will be the first to respond, and when called upon, you will deliver the final word in the bidding of our nation," said Stackley. "Whenever you sail, wherever you sail, you will be a symbol of Unites States resolve and you will be a symbol of the man whose name you bear."

After the ship's sponsor and President Ford's daughter Susan Ford Bales gave the traditional command to "Man our ship and bring her to life," Ford Sailors ran up the brows and manned the rails as the band played "Anchor's Aweigh."

McCormack expressed his pride in the work his crew has done to get the ship ready to serve in the fleet.

"The Sailors aboard today are among our nation's finest," said McCormack. "They are talented, driven, innovative, dedicated, and passionate about what they do and I am very proud to be their commanding officer. Team Wolverine, I have the utmost faith and confidence in your abilities to handle any challenge ahead, and I can think of no better team to take this ship to sea."

After the ceremony, the ship was opened to the general public for tours, which included the flight deck, the commanding officer's in-port cabin, pilot house, mess decks, fo'c'sle, and the newly opened tribute room.

USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) is the lead ship in the Ford-class of aircraft carrier, the first new class in more than 40 years, and will begin the phased replacement of Nimitz-class carriers.

CVN-78 honors the 38th president of the United States and pays tribute to his lifetime of service in the Navy, in the U.S. government and to the nation. During World War II Ford attained the rank of lieutenant commander in the Navy, serving on the light carrier USS Monterey (CVL 26). Ford became president in the aftermath of the Watergate scandal and served in the country's highest office from 1974-1977.

US NAVY GUNNERS ARE TESTING A WEARABLE HEADS-US DISPLAY




July 24, 2017
Alan Antczak

A service lab has turned a lieutenant’s brainstorm into a testable prototype dubbed the GunnAR augmented-reality headset.

In just a year, a wearable headset designed to help U.S. Navy gunnery sailors cut through the fog of combat has evolved from a lieutenant’s brainstorm to a prototype being tested in various exercises.

Conceived by a junior officer aboard the destroyer Gridley, the idea for GunnAR was presented at last year’s ONR Innovation Jam, where it received first prize — and $100,000 to make it real. After rapid progressions through various development milestones, the blue-tinted visor was put to the test in the Trident Warrior 2017 experiment aboard USS Bunker Hill, where sailors used it to put live fire on targets.

But what does GunnAR do, exactly? It is meant to facilitate communication between the ship’s gunnery liaison officer and the sailors manning the ship’s smaller guns. The headset is wirelessly connected to a tablet, which the officer uses to direct the gunner’s attention toward targets, and to start or stop firing. Cues and other information — infrared imagery, distances to targets — appear in a heads-up display projected on the visor. The system thus helps the sailor to see exactly what his or her officer wants him or her to do, all without having to rely on shouted orders, radio transmitters, or sound-powered telephones.

GunnAR is part of the military’s growing fascination with augmented and virtual reality. VR allows soldiers to train for battle without wasting expensive ammunition, while AR may eventually be used by commanders on the battlefield to pinpoint objectives and highlight threats to their troops. The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific’s Battlespace Exploitation of Mixed Reality (BEMR) Lab, the outfit that made Lt. Robert McClenning’s idea a reality, frequently tests such technology.

In September, GunnAR will be part of in the CITADEL PROJECT waterside security experiment at Naval Base San Diego. In the year or so after, it is expected that DoD’s Physical Security Enterprise & Analysis Group will provide funding to produce and distribute the technology on a wider scale.

THE DANGEROUS POLITICIZATION OF THE US MILITARY

-----

Not a word from President Trump about the rule of the US army in the UN Peacekeeping, because you're a just a slave :



U.S. Military Fighting For Foreign Government

http://www.apfn.org/THEWINDS/1997/10/un_army.html


The Plan to Have the UN Rule
http://www.unwatch.com/rule.html

-----





July 24, 2017

By asking active duty personnel to lobby Congress in their own self-interest, President Trump crossed an important line.

Last week, the head of the French armed forces angrily resigned after disagreements with his new president, Emmanuel Macron, over the defense budget.

This was the first resignation of its kind in France in six decades, but it was enough to remind me how much Americans take healthy civil-military relations for granted. Unlike the French, for example, who have had some terrible episodes between their civilian and military leaders over the years, Americans have never had to disband a parachute infantry regiment because it literally threatened to drop onto the nation’s capital and depose the elected government.

That’s not to say we haven’t had our issues, but aside from Douglas MacArthur’s repeated (and successful) attempts to embarrass himself and his profession, Americans have rarely had to worry about the U.S. military and its leadership as a threat to the Republic.

Current and former U.S. military officers take great pride, in fact, in the way in which the active-duty officer corps is seen as being above politics.

It has to be.

Given the enormous responsibility Americans grant to young men and women in uniform, citizens have to trust that military officers will never use their arms to achieve a political end here in the United States in the same way they do abroad.

Contemporary military officers, as Samuel Huntington famously observed, belong to a profession. They are professional managers of violence. We arm, train, and equip uniformed military officers to do frankly horrific things—killing, maiming, and intimidating people with force—in order to achieve favorable political outcomes.

For that reason, former U.S. military officers were particularly appalled when the current president of the United States, in a speech commissioning the U.S. military’s latest and most powerful war machine, encouraged his uniformed audience to call their representatives to lobby for the president’s policies—including his budget increasing defense spending at the expense of other domestic priorities.  

“I don’t mind getting a little hand, so call that congressman and call that senator and make sure you get it,” he said. “And by the way, you can also call those senators to make sure you get health care.”

We could fill volumes already with the ways in which this president has upended Washington norms, but I’m not sure this breach of civil-military norms can be blamed on him alone. If anything, this president has been conditioned to speak the way he speaks by a military officer corps that has been steadily politicized over the past several decades, and most Americans are to blame.

The U.S. public, feeling guilty about the way it treated the men and women who fought a very unpopular war in southeast Asia, replied by heaping effusive praise on the men and women who kicked Saddam Hussein’s army out of Kuwait.

And the praise kept coming.


Despite uneven performances in both Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. public never stopped hailing its heroes in uniform. Soldiers and sailors tossing out the first pitches at baseball games are greeted like Medal of Honor recipients, and healthy teenage kids right out of basic training board planes at airports before mothers struggling with infants and toddlers. Both political parties line up presidential endorsements from retired generals and admirals—whose opinion is meant to count for more than that of the civilian—every four years in a kind of quadrennial political arms race.

All of this Americans have grown to consider normal, and all of it reinforces the idea that the U.S. military is a special, privileged class of men and women within our society.

Here’s the danger in that, and in the president’s words this past weekend: If you keep treating the U.S. military like a privileged class—a class of men and women above the citizens it swore to defend—it will start acting like it. America has already taken on some characteristics of a banana republic of late, with long-standing ethical rules ignored (with the tacit blessing of the Congress) and the president’s relatives given positions of power within the government. So a next logical step would be a military like that of Egypt, or Turkey, or Pakistan, where the military officer corps is a political-economic actor that operates not only out of service to the citizenry but also to protect its own craven political and economic interests.

That’s what the president was encouraging last Saturday, even if it was done with little understanding of how such a political actor, once animated, might act against him as well.
Thankfully, the U.S. military officer corps itself—which is increasingly filled with the sons and daughters of other officers, for whom military service has grown into a family tradition—is a bulwark against its own politicization.

The best thing the U.S. military teaches its young officers—the thing I am most grateful for, looking back on my own military service—is servant-leadership. Most of the men and women who rise to the most senior ranks of the uniformed officer corps grew up with the understanding that the highest form of leadership was to serve—to be the last in the unit to eat, the first out of the door on a night parachute drop, or the one who worked the longest hours over the weekend.

But even the strongest organizational cultures are susceptible to corruption, and it  is incumbent on all Americans to keep our uniformed servants humble.

Perhaps appropriately, the people most effective at doing this are often veterans. No one who has ever served in the military can ever take it entirely seriously. Those of us who make the same pilgrimage, every Memorial Day, to place flowers at the graves of our friends are also among those most likely to roll our eyes at the latest Navy SEAL fitness video.

I thought it completely unsurprising that my friend Jason Dempsey found Brad Pitt’s portrayal of Stan McChrystal so great, not because it was accurate—in contrast to the buffoonish Pitt character, McChrystal in real life has one of the more subtle, subversive minds I’ve encountered—but because it had the courage to mock the U.S. military in a way he, as a veteran, found refreshing.

No one has chopped generals and admirals down to size more effectively and for as long as the ailing senior senator from Arizona, John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. When he passes from the public stage, we need to count on the newest crop of veterans—and many are running in 2018 congressional races—to take up the torch with which he has burned down the reputations of many self-important officers.

All Americans, though, can do their part by denouncing attempts to mobilize the military as a political actor. The military must be preserved as an instrument of political power, not as a political end itself. And if the military is brought down a peg or two in the public imagination as a result, that’s okay.

LA PRESENCE MILITAIRE RUSSE EN SYRIE PROLONGEE DE 49 ANS

27 juil. 2017, 18:02

Vladimir Poutine a ratifié la loi permettant à Moscou de conserver la base aérienne de Hmeimim en Syrie, utilisée par l'armée russe dans le cadre de son engagement au côté des forces loyalistes.

Ce n'était plus qu'une formalité. Le président russe Vladimir Poutine a ratifié le 27 juillet l'accord conclu à Damas en janvier dernier permettant à l'armée russe de continuer à utiliser la base de Hmeimim pour une durée de 49 ans, avec une clause permettant de prolonger cette durée de 25 ans supplémentaires.

Les deux chambres du Parlement russe avait donné leur aval à la poursuite de la mission militaire dans le pays au début du mois de juillet.

Cette base aérienne, située dans la province de Lattaquié, constitue le point central de l'engagement de la Fédération de Russie aux côtés de son allié syrien contre les groupes rebelles s'efforçant de renverser le président Bachar el-Assad, ainsi que les forces djihadistes de l'Etat islamique (EI). Commencée en septembre 2015, cette intervention s'est surtout illustrée par des campagnes de bombardements qui ont permis à l'armée arabe syrienne de libérer de larges pans de son territoire.

CHINA STAGES HIGH-PROFILE NAVAL DRILL OFF KOREAN PENINSULA 

Show of military might ahead of PLA anniversary aimed at demonstrating Beijing’s resolve amid heightened tensions over Pyongyang, analysts say

Kristin Huang UPDATED : Thursday, 27 Jul 2017, 11:10PM

China is flexing its military muscle in a high-profile naval exercise in the Yellow Sea, off the western coast of the Korean peninsula, days ahead of the PLA’s 90th anniversary.

Beijing has so far released scant information about the three-day live-fire drill, which is expected to last through Saturday, but analysts say it is also aimed at demonstrating China’s resolve amid heightened tensions over North Korea’s nuclear provocations.

US admiral would ‘nuke China next week’ if Trump ordered it

The PLA Navy’s North Sea Fleet and the Shandong Maritime Safety Administration announced in the past two days that the central part of the Yellow Sea would be cordoned off to all marine traffic from Thursday for military purposes.

An area of about 40,000 square kilometres off the coastal city of Qingdao, where the North Sea Fleet is headquartered, was expected to be affected by the drill, which would involve live ammunition, Weihai Evening Post reported on Wednesday.

Military experts said the drill was part of celebrations marking the 90th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Liberation Army, which falls on August 1.

Beijing has yet to unveil details of the celebrations, but sources familiar with the matter told the South China Morning Post that President Xi Jinping would go to Asia’s largest military training base in Zhurihe, Inner Mongolia to watch war games involving cyberwarfare, special troops and army aviation.

“It’s very likely linked to the 90th anniversary. It’s more of a show of military might to [demonstrate] the recent PLA achievements,” said Collin Koh, a maritime security expert from the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University.

Analysts also believed the drill was designed to send a warning to both Pyongyang and Washington as concerns grow over North Korea’s accelerated nuclear and missile programme.

Ni Lexiong, a Shanghai-based military affairs commentator, said the drill would send “a very subtle message to North Korea” as the defiant hermit nation refused to give up its nuclear ambitions despite US threats of a military strike.

The US and Australian governments have said they believe Pyongyang could be preparing for another intercontinental ballistic missile test to be conducted within days.

Ni said the naval drill could also be sending a message to the US at a time when tensions have resurfaced over a slew of issues including the South China Sea dispute.

“The US has been quite active in the region recently,” he said, citing its joint naval exercises with Japan and India and recent maritime and airspace patrols in disputed waters of the East China Sea and South China Sea. Two Chinese fighter jets intercepted a US Navy surveillance plane over the East China Sea at the weekend.

Zhou Chenming, a military observer, said Russian ships may join the exercise in the Yellow Sea, in a sign of closer Sino-Russian military and security ties.

Shi Yinhong, an international relations specialist from Renmin University, agreed that Beijing and Moscow appeared to be edging closer as Washington threatened tougher sanctions against North Korea and Russia. “Russian-US relations were strained over Moscow’s annexation of Crimea and ties between China and the US have been frayed in recent weeks. This is the fundamental reason behind the growing military ties between China and Russia,” he said.

China flexes its military muscle in Tibet, close to border dispute with India

China, which has been conducting joint sea exercises with Russia since 2011, is conducting its first naval drill in the Baltic Sea alongside Russian warships.

Meanwhile, State Councillor Yang Jiechi vowed to boost strategic cooperation and military ties with Russia on Wednesday at a bilateral strategy and security dialogue in Beijing.

China’s defence ministry could not be reached for comment.

LE PENTAGONE LIVRE POUR 1.2 M USD D'ARMES A UN  DEPARTEMENT DE POLICE INEXISTANT

© AFP 2017 Jonathan Ernst

Le Pentagone a fourni des armes et des équipements militaires pour un montant de 1.2 million de dollars à un département de police inexistant.

Le Pentagone a remis à un département de police inexistant des armes et des équipements spéciaux, dont le montant s'élève à 1.2 million de dollars, a-t-on appris du rapport publié récemment sur le site officiel du Government Accountability Office (GAO).

D'après le rapport, les commissaires aux comptes ont audité le programme de transfert de matériel militaire excédentaire aux Forces de l'ordre américaines en vue de vérifier son efficacité.

À ces fins, ils ont créé un site fictif d'un département de police, au nom duquel ils ont envoyé au Pentagone une requête de transfert d'armes excédentaires.

Or, le département de la Défense a examiné la demande et expédié aux «policiers» plus d'une centaine d'unités d'équipement militaire, y compris des lunettes de vision nocturne, des fusils d'assaut M-16 et des pièces détachées pour explosifs. Suite à cette «expérience» dont les résultats sont pour le moins évocateurs, le GAO appelle désormais le Pentagone à prendre des mesures plus rigoureuses afin d'empêcher tout cas de fraude éventuel et à resserrer le contrôle du transfert de munitions excédentaires. Rolling Eyes

Selon le rapport, le Pentagone a fourni depuis 1991 des armes pour un montant supérieur à 6 milliards de dollars à plus de 8.600 départements de police.

Quelque 8.500 militaires ont été mobilisés vendredi par le gouvernement brésilien pour participer à une force de 10.000 hommes au total chargée de renforcer la sécurité à Rio de Janeiro, dont certains ont commencé à être déployés, a-t-on appris de source officielle.

Le président Michel Temer a signé un décret autorisant "l'emploi des forces armées dans l'Etat" de Rio de Janeiro, a annoncé le Journal officiel, alors que la ville connaît une flambée de violences.

Des véhicules de transport de troupes ont commencé à circuler à Rio vendredi après-midi.

Le ministre da la Défense, Raul Jungmann, a précisé lors d'une conférence de presse que cette opération visait en particulier le crime organisé dans la métropole de 6,5 millions d'habitants.

Mais, a-t-il ajouté, "nous n'allons pas résoudre le problème de la criminalité seulement sur le territoire brésilien", dans une allusion à la nécessité d'une coopération avec d'autres pays de la région.

Un an après avoir accueilli les jeux Olympiques, Rio est en proie à une flambée de violences, avec une moyenne effrayante de trois personnes par jour atteintes par des balles perdues lors des six premiers mois de l'année, notamment lors de fusillades entre policiers et narcotrafiquants.

Quelque 90 membres des forces de l'ordre ont été tués depuis le début de l'année dans les violences à Rio.

(2nd LD) S. KOREA TO CONDUCT ADDITIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL SURVEY OF THAAD

2017-07-28 11:22

   (ATTN: UPDATES with details, clarification in paras 5-7; ADDS photo, byline)

By Lee Chi-dong

   SEOUL, July 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea announced a plan Friday for an additional environmental impact assessment of the THAAD missile defense system, a process expected to take at least several months.

   The defense ministry said it will decide whether to fully deploy the U.S. weapon on its soil after the "general" or "ordinary" environmental survey to be held in accordance with a domestic law.

   The allies will soon begin consultations on details, including the size of an area subject to the measure under the decision by an inter-agency task force on the issue, a ministry official said.

   "It's hard to talk about an exact timeline, as it depends on consultations with the U.S. side and other elements," he told reporters on background. "Usually, it takes 10 to 15 months to complete such a process."

   But the period could be shortened since a survey is currently being conducted, he added, reaffirming the government's commitment to wrapping up the process as early as possible.

   South Korea agreed to provide the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) with 700,000 square meters of land at a former golf course in Seongju, some 300 kilometers southeast of Seoul, to house a THAAD battery.

   Another ministry official stressed that the new environmental step does not mean a reversal of the "alliance decision" itself, saying it's aimed at enhancing the "procedural justification" at home.

   A "small-sized" environmental survey has been under way there since December last year in a decision by the country's former Park Geun-hye administration.

   Two THAAD interceptor launchers are already operational at the site, along with a powerful X-band radar, and a fire control and communication system. Four other launchers remain stored at a nearby USFK base.

   The ministry characterized it as a "temporary" operation. It said it would allow the fuel supply and some construction works for troops there, while consulting with the environmental ministry on the evaluation that has been done so far.

   The left-leaning Moon Jae-in administration, launched in May, took issue with the legitimacy and transparency of the THAAD deployment.

   Presidential aides believe the allies should have conducted a preliminary environmental survey before starting the installation of relevant equipment.

   They also suspect that the former government scaled down environmental survey without appropriate procedures in a bid to dodge strict environmental assessment regulations and facilitate the deployment.

   South Koreans are split over THAAD amid fierce backlash from China. Some, mainly conservatives, say it's a must to help defend the country and the USFK against North Korea's missile threats. Others pointed out, however, the government should adequately collect public opinions on such a matter related to national security.

AFRICOM HOSTS ITS FIRST INTERNATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT PANEL

Engagement provides opportunity to understand how intergovernmental organizations coordinate law enforcement activities in Africa.

By U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Grady Jones, U.S. Africa Command Public AffairsStuttgart, Germany

Jul 14, 2017

STUTTGART, Germany — U.S. Africa Command hosted its first International Law Enforcement Panel at the U.S. Army Garrison in Stuttgart Germany, July 11, 2017.

The purpose of the event was to increase understanding of how intergovernmental organizations coordinate law enforcement activities in Africa, while identifying opportunities for collaboration and information sharing between the command and international law enforcement partners.

In attendance were AFRICOM staff and a panel of law enforcement partners from the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and European Law Enforcement Agency (EUROPOL.)

Military law enforcement, civil agencies, as well as politicians need to be on the same page, and need to be made aware of the challenges faced in order to develop responses,” said Marius Roman, outreach team specialist, European Migrant Smuggling Centre, EUROPOL.

Europe has experienced a surge in migrants traveling from North Africa reaching European borders with the help of criminal syndicates, said Roman. Rolling Eyes

AFRICOM approaches these challenges by way of humanitarian assistance, in contrast to other agencies security rule of law civilian capacity building, according to Munro.

“We’re dealing with the effect of these challenges and these types of issues cannot be addressed by law enforcement or military alone,” Roman said. “It needs a more holistic approach. Bringing different countries, agencies, and organizations together to address challenges helps to maximize the use of resources.

“We have to consider that there are other people doing similar work to us,” said Ian Munro, senior law enforcement advisor, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime,” but if we talk to each other, we can actually make the limited money and resources that we have go further by linking in with each other.”

“In this day in age, with the rapidly changing criminal environment, bringing all stakeholders together and making sure that our efforts are complimentary to each other is important in effectively tackling (issues) and making sure (people) are safe,” said Roman.

 “At the end of the day the goal is a strong and stable communities in Africa,” said Munro.

AFRICOM continues it’s mission of working towards a secure, stable, and prosperous Africa.

FORGING FRIENDSHIP WITH WARRIOR SPIRIT : TUNISIAN ARMY PARTICIPATES IN JRTC ROTATION FOR FIRST TIME


Tunisian army participates in JRTC rotation for first time

By Jean Dubiel, Fort Polk, La. Public Affairs
Jul 12, 2017



“One can go to war alone, but you can’t build peace alone.” — Jacques Chirac, 22nd President of France, 1995-2007.

As the Joint Readiness Training Center began rotation 17-07 June 9, the group serving as the host nation force battalion headquarters was a contingent from the Tunisian army — first-timers for JRTC, but not new to fighting terrorism.

Capt. Matthew Graham, commander, B Troop, 132nd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, is the U.S. Army Africa Command Regionally Aligned Forces advise and assist trainer embedded with the Tunisian contingent to be a bit more than an observer-coach-trainer. He helped the Tunisians get situated in their role for the exercise and offered more detailed explanations of the training as needed. However, because of their real-world experience in battling terrorism in their country, learning became a two-way street.

“Tunisia is part of the 32-member coalition (the Islamic Military Alliance to Fight Terrorism) battling ISIL Rolling Eyes , so a lot of these guys have actually fought with them on the battlefield in Tunisia,” said Graham. “They have a wealth of combat experience that we can learn from too.” He said knowing the experience of the Tunisians meant training could be better tailored to suit their needs, giving them an experience that will enhance their own training back home. “That will help them improve their army,” he said.

Col. Karim Berrabah of the Tunisian Army said he participated in other joint exercises at training centers within AFRICOM, but this was his first in the United States. He and his team learned about the Military Decision Making Process, a concept that will replace Tunisia’s current planning methodology.

“The goal for our participation in this exercise is to increase our partnership with the American Army and learn more about the technology (and methods) used in the tactical operations centers,” said Berrabah. “We will start using the things we learned here — like the MDMP — that we did not use in Tunisia because we were using the French model, and try to introduce it into our training. For this group and others that have visited the U.S., the goal is to build more partnership with the U.S. and learn (other ways) to fight terrorism in our country. Our main goal is to combat the worldwide phenomenon that is terrorism and achieve peace.”

Berrabah said his time working with the American Army at JRTC more than lived up to his expectation.

“It is well known that everyone thinks of the U.S. as the No. 1 world power,” he said. “Coming here, you can affirm that, and the discipline and professionalism of the Soldiers is evident.’’

Lt. Col. Ethan Diven, squadron commander, 1st Squadron, 40th Cavalry Regiment, 4th BCT (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division out of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, is one of the professional Soldiers to which Berrabah referred. He said working with the Tunisian Army was a good experience.

“They have done very well in developing a conceptual plan, and the way they draw graphics and communicate, and their tactics, are similar to ours,” Diven said.

“We go in simple with analog products, not utilizing technology — which in austere environments and bad weather doesn’t work anyway — so it has taken us back to our basic planning tools and has turned into a common way to understand and plan together.”

The experience of working with the Tunisians broadened his staff’s perspective of American and allied interoperability, according to Diven.

“Initial link up (with the Tunisians) and understanding the concept of operations forced our staff to get over some of the assumptions that they made — that it’s going to be fully synchronized and detailed right off the bat — (but) the acronyms that we use are a whole different language than what another country’s army uses.”

Diven said the rotation has been beneficial — for all parties. “It’s been a great exercise.”

USMAP HITS MILESTONE OF  100,000 ACTIVE APPRENTICESHIPS

Story Number: NNS170728-30Release Date: 7/28/2017 3:45:00 PM   

By Ed Barker, Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center Public Affairs



170727-N-FH321-031 PENSACOLA, Fla. (July. 27, 2017) Aviation Maintenance Administrationman 1st Class Monica Cooper, assigned to the U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels as a data analyst, conducts an acceptance inspection of the newest F/A-18 aircraft in the Blue Angels inventory. Cooper earned her computer programmer apprenticeship certificate through the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP) as part of her normal daily routine on the maintenance control staff. The USMAP program recently reached 100,000 active participants; apprenticeship certificates are earned in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor.

PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- After more than 40 years providing sea-service military members with journeyman-level certifications documenting their skills through the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP) announced a milestone of 100,000 active participants, July 28.

The USMAP team works closely with DOL to provide nationally-recognized apprenticeship programs that result in journeyman-level certificates of completion for members of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. During their apprenticeship, service members document their military duties while working in their rating or military occupational specialties (MOS). Earning the DOL certificate is free to service members and normally does not require working additional off-duty hours.

"We've made significant upgrades to the USMAP website, making it easier for service members to sign up for, manage and complete the program," said Lt. Cmdr. Nick Turner, deputy director for Navy Voluntary Education. "With the recent improvements, we've seen an increase in weekly program completions and a bump in the interest level, bringing us up to 100,000 service members actively working toward their DOL certificates."

One Sailor who has embraced the program is Aviation Maintenance Administrationman 1st Class (AW) Monica Cooper, data analyst for the Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels. Cooper recently finished her computer programmer apprenticeship/certification and is currently working on a computer operator certification.

"The USMAP program is right up there with getting a college degree," said Cooper. "You're getting a DOL certification for the job you do every day. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. The apprenticeship program breaks my job down into small parts as the hours are logged. It's not only beneficial to my rating, but will also help verify my skills when I retire."

USMAP enables documentation of a Sailor's formalized and structured training. It combines on-the-job training (OJT) and related technical instruction. All the individual is required to do is regularly document the hours worked in the various skill areas, either in a hard-copy log or electronically through the USMAP website and have it verified by their supervisor. In addition, the service member submits a report every six months and a final report once their required OJT hours are complete.

"Each apprenticeship requires anywhere between 2,000 and 8,000 hours of on-the-job work and training," said Tom Phillips, USMAP certifications and credentialing program lead. "That sounds daunting, but working a typical 40-hour week, many individuals can complete an apprenticeship within a year."

There are 123 trades available, ranging from aircraft mechanic to x-ray equipment tester. More than 96 percent of Navy enlisted rates, 85 percent of Coast Guard enlisted rates, and 232 Marine Corps military occupational specialties are eligible for these trades. USMAP trades apply to virtually all members of the services. For the few members without a specific trade corresponding to their rating or MOS, there are generic trades such as computer operator.

"Pre-registration credits can also be awarded to those who have time-in-service and can even be applied toward college credits," added Phillips. "The maximum advance credit a service member can receive is 50 percent of the required OJT. For example, an E-6 with 10 years of service interested in an apprenticeship requiring 8,000-hours can receive a maximum of 4,000 credits toward their certificate for previous experience, cutting their requirements for hours of logged training in half."

"It's about quantifying what you've accomplished," said Phillips. "Service members are already doing the work. It's just a matter of documenting what they do on a daily basis. Now they have their work 'on the record' and a completed apprenticeship shows significant professional development, which can look good to supervisors and promotion boards. Certificates can also open doors once a service member decides to hang up the uniform."

Any active duty Sailor, Marine, or Coast Guardsman can become a DOL-recognized apprentice as long as they have been designated in a rating, have sufficient time to complete the program while on active duty, and possess a high school diploma or GED. The selected trade must be their primary job at their current command.

WASHINGTON ET SEOUL ENVISAGENT DES «OPTIONS DE REACTION MILITAIRE» APRES UN NOUVEAU TIR NORD-COREEN

Selon Washington, Pyongyang aurait tiré un missile balistique. D'après des hauts responsables japonais, ce projectile se serait abîmé dans la zone économique exclusive du Japon. Américains et Sud-Coréens se disent prêts à réagir avec force.

Selon des hauts responsables japonais cités par la télévision publique nippone NHK, un projectile se serait abîmé dans la zone économique exclusive japonaise le 28 juillet, peu avant minuit (heure locale). Le missile aurait été tiré depuis la Corée du Nord, d'après des membres de l'état-major sud-coréens, cités par l'agence de presse de Corée du Sud Yonhap.

Côté américain, le porte-parole du Pentagone, le capitaine de vaisseau Jeff Davis a déclaré : «Je peux confirmer que nous avons détecté le lancement d'un missile balistique depuis la Corée du Nord. [...] Nous évaluons la situation et nous aurons plus d'informations bientôt», a-t-il ajouté.

D'après le ministère américain de la Défense, cité par l'AFP, ce missile était un engin intercontinental (ICBM), et a parcouru un millier de kilomètres avant de finir sa course en mer. Le ministère de la Défense russe, en revanche, considère qu'il s'agit d'un missile balistique à portée intermédiaire.

Selon les données des autorités sud-coréennes et japonaises, le missile a été lancé depuis la province nord-coréenne de Jangang. Il aurait ensuite effectué un vol de 45 minutes, d'après Tokyo.

Les chefs militaires américains et sud-coréens envisagent des «options de réaction militaire»

A la suite du tir de missile, le Pentagone a fait savoir que les responsables militaires américains et sud-coréens avaient discuté d'«options de réaction militaire».
De son côté, la France a appelé à «l'adoption rapide de sanctions additionnelles et fortes» par le Conseil de sécurité de l'ONU. L'Union européenne, enfin, a condamné le tir, estimant qu'il «menaçait sérieusement la paix et la sécurité internationales», selon l'AFP.

La Corée du Nord inquiète la communauté internationale

Le 4 juillet, Pyongyang s'était félicité de la réussite du lancement d'un missile qu'il a présenté comme son premier missile balistique intercontinental, Hwasong-14, capable de porter une «grande et lourde ogive nucléaire». Selon Washington, ce type de missile «jamais vu auparavant» serait susceptible d'atteindre le nord-ouest du continent américain.

De son côté, le ministère russe de la Défense avait décrit un missile de portée intermédiaire (IRBM) qui avait parcouru quelque 535 kilomètres, atteignant une altitude de 510 kilomètres, avant de sombrer en mer du Japon.

La communauté internationale avait condamné ce tir de missile. Moscou, pour autant, a enjoint à plusieurs reprises Washington à ne pas encourager une logique d'escalade des tensions, alors que les autorités américaines font montre d'un ton belliqueux à l'égard de Pyongyang.

DEMONSTRATION DE FORCE DE L'ARMEE CHINOISE AUTOUR DE XI JINPING (VIDEO)

Défilé militaire en Chine, le 30 juillet 2017

La Chine s'est livrée le 30 juillet à une démonstration de force avec un défilé militaire géant autour du président Xi Jinping, qui a appelé l'armée à servir le Parti communiste au pouvoir.

Devant la tribune où Xi Jinping se tenait debout revêtu d'un costume et d'une casquette en treillis, des centaines de véhicules, de blindés et de missiles, ainsi que des milliers de soldats, ont défilé loin du public dans l'immense base militaire de Zhurihe, en Mongolie intérieure (nord), à environ 500 km au nord-ouest de Pékin.

Les médias étrangers n'ont pas été conviés à couvrir l'événement qui était retransmis par la télévision nationale à l'occasion du 90e anniversaire de la fondation de l'Armée rouge.

Des hélicoptères ont survolé le défilé, formant le chiffre 90 dans le ciel, suivis par des avions de combat.

Dans un discours prononcé face aux troupes, Xi Jinping a appelé l'armée à suivre «la direction absolue» du Parti communiste chinois (PCC) et à se tenir prête à «vaincre tout envahisseur» potentiel.

«Le monde n'est pas entièrement en paix et la paix doit être sauvegardée», a-t-il déclaré. «Plus qu'à aucun autre moment dans l'histoire, nous devons bâtir une armée du peuple puissante», a-t-il ajouté.

A l'approche du XIXe congrès du PCC qui doit lui conférer à l'automne un nouveau mandat de cinq ans à la tête du pays, le chef de l'Etat avait auparavant passé en revue les troupes sous un ciel clair au milieu de la steppe mongole.

Xi Jinping a lancé à plusieurs reprises «Camarades, vous avez travaillé dur!» aux soldats, qui répondaient en cœur : «Nous sommes au service du peuple!»

La Chine dispose de la première armée du monde en termes d'effectifs, avec 2 millions d'hommes sous les drapeaux.

En termes de budget, elle est la deuxième du monde, loin derrière celle des Etats-Unis, avec une enveloppe de 143 milliards d'euros prévue pour 2017, en hausse de 7% par rapport à l'an dernier. Pékin a mis à flot en avril un deuxième porte-avions et a ouvert sa première base militaire à l'étranger, à Djibouti.

Le défilé du 30 juillet commémorait la fondation de l'armée communiste chinoise en 1927 lors d'un premier engagement face aux troupes du gouvernement nationaliste au début de la guerre civile qui s'achèvera par l'arrivée au pouvoir du PCC en 1949.

L'armée chinoise, connue aujourd'hui sous le vocable «d'Armée populaire de libération» (APL), fête normalement son anniversaire chaque année le 1er août.

Les numéros uns chinois successifs ont traditionnellement présidé à d'imposants défilés militaires à diverses occasions, mais ceux-ci se déroulaient habituellement à Pékin.
