Join us on Wednesday, March 27th, at 11:00 AM Eastern for a live web forum to discuss the threat of small unmanned aircrafts, aka drones. Andrew Lacher, Autonomy Integration and Adoption Lead at MITRE Corporation, will provide an overview and respond to participant questions.

Presentation abstract: “For several years, The MITRE Corporation has been exploring issues associated with the potential security threats that small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) also known as drones present. In 2016, MITRE sponsored a competition during which eight commercial companies demonstrated in a real-world setting the effectiveness of their detect and defeat capabilities against commonly available sUAS operating in an unauthorized fashion.  As part of that effort, MITRE began to describe the potential threat posed by sUAS using a variety of characteristics. MITRE experts have continued to evolve this threat spectrum as we work on counter-UAS-related tasks for our sponsors and as we research the ever-evolving technology and operational capabilities of sUAS. MITRE used our data-driven observations to characterize the sUAS threat. MITRE is sharing its sUAS threat characterization to help the community understand the nature of potential sUAS threats and to provide a common vernacular for discussing the technical challenges associated with detecting and defeating the threat.”

LIVE Web Forum: Fine-Tuning Situational Awareness to Your Organization: Case in point, how can the MRN TX360 technology be customized to your organization?

The TX360 technology platform powers the MRN dashboards that many in the Resilience Networks have utilized over the last two years.

This web forum offers a review of the key elements of situational awareness and will utilize the TX360 technology platform as an example of how you can develop focused situational awareness including creating customized Dashboards and Smart Alerts from both existing and added Intelligence Channels to monitor unique threat areas.

The MRN dashboards developed by INTERCEP staff focus on general needs of the member community. However there is opportunity to tailor the core TX360 technology platform to the specific needs of your organization. 

Pete O'Dell will share his insights as an expert in situational awareness and intelligence.  He is the President and Founder of the Swan Island Networks which developed the TX360 platform as an affordable, cloud-based, easy to deploy and use situational awareness platform that can help organizations with real-time monitoring, risk reduction, and response.

LIVE Web Forum Truth Decay: Impacts On the Public & Private Sectors When Objective Facts and Core Institutions Are Not Believed

The line between fact and fiction in American public life is becoming blurred. RAND has begun studying the causes and consequences of this "Truth Decay" phenomenon and how it affects democracy and political and civil discourse in the United States. Where basic facts and well-supported analyses of these facts were once generally accepted — such as the benefit of using vaccines to protect health — disagreement about even objective facts and well-supported analyses has swelled in recent years. In addition, a growing number of Americans view the U.S. government, media, and academia with new skepticism. These developments drive wedges between policymakers and neighbors alike. 

Join us on Thursday, March 29th at 11:00am Eastern for a web forum on Truth Decay. Dr. Jennifer Kavanagh, Associate Director, Strategy, Doctrine, and Resources Program, RAND Arroyo Center will provide insights and respond to attendee questions. Register here
