Al Qaeda (AQ) has evolved into a significantly different terrorist org. than the one that perpetrated the 9/11 attacks. The pre-9/11 AQ was akin to a corp., with Osama Bin Laden acting as a CEO issuing orders and soliciting ideas from subordinates. It has transformed into a diffuse global network and philosophical movement composed of dispersed nodes with varying degrees of independence. Contents of this report: (1) Background; (2) AQ Origins; (3) Afghanistan; (4) Pakistan; (5) Arabian Peninsula; (6) Iraq; (7) North Africa/Sahel: Islamic Maghreb; Algeria; The Sahel; (8) Somalia; The Islamic Co

Documents a probabilistic risk assessment of an existing power supply system at a large telecomm. office. The focus is on characterizing the increase in the reliability of power supply through the use of two alternative power configurations. Failures in the power systems supporting major telecomm. service nodes are a main contributor to major telecomm. outages. A logical approach to improve the robustness of telecomm. facilities would be to increase the depth and breadth of technologies available to restore power in the face of power outages. Distributed energy resources such as fuel cells and

High level magnetic fields can upset and damage electronics, as well as disrupt or disable computer software. Thus, high power radio frequency (RF) fields pose a threat to electronics and software dependent systems. Critical infrastructures such as telecomm. could be targeted. This report examines the general vulnerability of public and emergency telecomm. networks to high power RF fields. The following primary questions are addressed: (1) Can the loss of a node (e.g., a switching station or a wireless base station), or nodes, cascade through the telecomm. network, causing a large-scale system

With the dramatic increase in air transport due to the deregulation of the airline industry, transport policy is confronted with new challenges to provide land transport connections to airports. The Round Table discussed how the requirements of ensuring efficient land transport connectivity depend on the market structure of the airline industry and its impact on the airport network. To reduce the increasing dominance of private car use in airport connectivity, policy measures are required: To charge for the direct and indirect costs of the different modes, To de/regulate the public transport s

The Swedish government is undertaking efforts to reorient Swedish Defence Forces from homeland defence to a wider suite of missions, including operations far from Sweden-a significant change in the way Sweden is willing to employ its armed forces. Such missions include expeditionary operations with coalition partners. Therefore, a decision was made to move towards network-based operations linking sensors, decisionmakers, and combat systems to achieve shared awareness, increased speed of command, higher operational tempo, greater lethality, and increased survivability. The methodology proposed
