The Joint Trauma Analysis and Prevention of Injuries in Combat (JTAPIC) program links medical, intelligence, operational, and materiel development communities to improve strategies to prevent or mitigate traumatic injuries in Service members. A new online system facilitates JTAPIC and their partnership in their mission to prevent injuries through actionable analysis that gives decision makers the concrete findings they need.
Series: HDIAC Webinars
HDIAC offers free webinars on a regular basis with experts in the technical subject areas of Alternative energy, Biometrics, CBRN Defense, Cultural Studies, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Homeland Defense & Security, Medical, and Weapons of Mass Destruction.
This presentation focuses on the role of communication, coordination, and collaboration for critical infrastructure resilience. The webinar will discuss the increasing importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships - across the public, private, and academic sectors - in promoting resilience within and across the four increasingly interdependent critical infrastructure sectors: energy, transportation, water, and communications.
In this presentation, a historical review of infectious disease-related combat injuries and deaths will be presented with an emphasis on the 1918 Influenza Pandemic during WWI, dengue and US Marine Forces in Saipan during WWII, dengue and US Forces Haiti and Somalia, malaria outbreak in US Marines deployed to Monrovia, and leishmaniasis and multi-drug resistant bacteria in US Forces during Persian Gulf War II. Lessons learned for future deployments will also be discussed.
This webinar features research and details of the RTM Protocol, a new and promising treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that requires no drugs and is completed in less than three sessions totaling five hours. Developed by the Research and Recognition Project, the protocol has been rigorously tested under strict scientific standards. Over 90% of the 160 veterans in the studies finished treatment with measured loss of their PTSD diagnosis, nightmares, flashbacks, and directly related emotional symptoms.
Responding to today's nuclear threat environment requires a commitment to developing technologies that enable effective deterrence, detection, survivability, and dominance in the nuclear domain. This presentation provides an overview of the evolving mission of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) in nuclear technology research and development. The current nuclear threat environment and DTRA's resulting top priorities will be discussed. The presentation will also review relevant new technologies and their applications to the warfighter.
Securing our critical infrastructure is vital to national security. This presentation demonstrates techniques that can be used to detect cyberattacks or equipment failures. A typical industrial control system is used as an example, with data collected to monitor and control the system. Data science techniques to prepare the data for machine learning will be analyzed. Various machine-learning approaches used to detect anomalies due to cyberattacks or equipment failures will be demonstrated and their efficacy discussed.
This webinar will cover the Information Analysis Center program and the capabilities and mission of the Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis Center. It will include and overview of Information Analysis Center activities, core functions, research and analysis capabilities, and a description of the services and products produced by the Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis Center.
This webinar examines the threat posed to a mega-city by a nuclear Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) event. Presented by Dr. William G. Kennedy, Associate Professor in the Center for Social Complexity and Department of Computational & Data Sciences at George Mason University, the webinar presents a 1:1 agent-based model of the population of New…
Deception detection is a longstanding research goal of considerable interest to the military, law enforcement, corporate security, social services, and mental health workers. However, both humans and polygraphs are very poor at this task. In this webinar, we describe classifiers we have developed to detect deception automatically from speech which are significantly better than humans.…
This webinar addresses the threat posed by rising levels of antibiotic resistance across the globe, and explores means of predicting pathogenic resistance in order to limit or preempt its effects. Presented by Dr. Yousif Shamoo, Vice Provost for Research and Professor of Biosciences at Rice University, the webinar examines an approach that combines biophysics, genomics,…
