The webinar planned for March 10, 2020 has been postponed. We will provide information regarding the new date and time as soon as possible. As Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to engage the world and its leaders, the HDIAC presents a Special Edition Webinar, hosting infectious disease expert, Dr. Stephen Thomas. Dr. Thomas will provide an overview of the epidemiology of the virus, information on transmission, its current global distribution, and cases and spread within the U.S. Dr. Thomas will additionally present details on the clinical manifestation of COVID-19, management, diagnosis, and prevention strategies.
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.
Nanotechnology has begun to revolutionize medicine in a number of ways, from improving disease detection to greater medical treatments. Most recently, nanomedicine has created implantable sensors incorporated onto traditional orthopedic implants that can accelerate the return of motor function to servicemembers, enabling a high quality of life and better monitoring of injury recovery. Overall, this webinar will cover FDA approved nanomedicine products being used today in humans which are showing significant promise for improving health of the military and their family members.
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.
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…
