    Military strategy and tactics are essential to the conduct of warfare. Broadly stated, strategy is the planning, coordination, and general direction of military operations to meet overall political and military objectives. Tactics implement strategy by short-term decisions on the movement of troops and employment of weapons on the field of battle.   We envisioned a system that would provide a simple, easy-to-use, unclassified military-oriented descriptive mechanism with which to rapidly evaluate the suitability of emerging and future agents as biological weapon threats. A validation study of this system, however, yielded some quite unexpected results and disagreement among experts (as Cited by:

The course would also benefit to those involved in requirements capture and procurement of weapon systems.

The department’s management of its weapon system programs has been a matter of congressional concern for many years.

This is GAO’s seventh annual assessment of selected Department of Defense (DOD) weapon programs. The report examines how well DOD. A club (also known as a cudgel, baton, bludgeon, truncheon, cosh, nightstick or impact weapon) is among the simplest of all weapons: a short staff or stick, usually made of wood, wielded as a weapon since prehistoric times.

There are several examples of blunt-force trauma caused by clubs in the past, including at the site of Nataruk in Turkana, Assessing the impact of weapon system modifications by field study book, described as the scene of a prehistoric. Here you’ll find more about the systems that enable our Soldiers to remain flexible, adaptable and agile to meet the needs of combatant commanders.
