This documented briefing describes an initial effort to gain insights on how the availability and reliability of Army equipment affect ground combat results and to assess the consequent implications for current and future forces. Combat results were generated using the JANUS model, a force-on-force simulation. For the purposes of this effort, JANUS was modified to take into account equipment availability before an engagement begins and equipment failures during the engagement. The principal scenario used was a forced entry by U.S. forces into Kosovo to neutralize Serbian forces and to stop eth

In the U.S., most nonprescription drugs are available over-the-counter in pharmacies and other stores. Experts have suggested that drug availability could be increased by establishing an additional class of nonprescription drugs that would be held behind the counter (BTC) but would require the intervention of a pharmacist before being dispensed; a similar class of drugs exists in many other countries. This is a report on: (1) arguments supporting and opposing a U.S. BTC drug class; (2) changes in drug availability in 5 countries and the impact of restricted nonprescription classes on availabil

The FAD System developed by the ERS tracks annual food and nutrient availability for many commodities. The FAD series in this system overstates actual consumption, so ERS has included an additional series, the Loss-Adjusted Food Availability (LAFA) data, to adjust the FAD for non-edible food parts and food losses, including losses from farm to retail, at retail, and at the consumer level. This report proposes new consumer-level loss estimates for "cooking loss and uneaten food" to replace those currently used in the LAFA data and proposes their adoption for the entire data span. The proposed l

The media industry plays a vital role in informing and entertaining the public. Media ownership and the availability of diverse programming have been a long-standing concern of Congress. Despite numerous programming choices in TV and radio available to the public, independently produced programming ż that is, programming not affiliated with broadcast networks or cable operators ż has decreased through the years. This report discusses: (1) the extent to which the sources of TV programming have changed over the last decade; (2) the factors industry stakeholders identified as affecting the avai

Better water management in irrigation tank cascade systems is vital in achieving higher productive use of available water. To develop and implement management practices aimed at improving effective use of water, studies leading to the development of models that can predict available tank water in irrigation tank cascade systems are invaluable. This report presents a simple water balance model, Cascade, developed to predict tank water availability in the Thirappane tank cascade system in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. The report includes calibration of the model and its application to predict tank wa
