obligations. The risk elements can also be used by military commanders as a (measurable and testable) pre-operational risk assessment “checklist” to ensure that autonomous systems are not used in an unethical manner. In this way, the Department of Defense (DOD) can make fully informed risk assessment decisions before developing or deploying autonomous systems. Because our study results were specifically ...

Navy Shore Infrastructure Investment Support
/reports/2008/navy-shore-infrastructure-investment-support
This paper describes the development process that CNA used to create a new methodology for the Navy to assess shore infrastructure readiness for support tasking, and it documents the design concepts for a shore facilities investment model. This model was developed as a programming tool for OPNAV N46 staff to adjust investment project profiles and funding levels to achieve desired performance output levels at the end of the current FYDP. The methodology involved creating measures of merit to quantify the current and future performance levels and a functional segmentation of the infrastructure to provide a greater understanding of shore support capabilities and shortfalls. The new technique required a method for indexing the measures of merit together in a consistent manner to provide the Navy with an ongoing readiness assessment number. It also required the creation of a baseline year infrastructure inventory assessment to use as the starting point for analyzing future year impact of current shore investment funding profiles. We developed a process to quantify the projected impact of proposed military construction and special projects upon the measures of merit.

Impacts on Field Training Officer Programs: Pairing Trainers and Trainees
/quick-looks/2021/impacts-of-field-training-officer-programs-pairing-trainers-and-trainees
Field training is often described as the most important stage in an officer’s career. The time spent with a field training officer is vital to the trainee’s career development and helps shapes the culture of an agency. Thus, it is imperative that the trainer-trainee relationship is one which facilitates learning and growth.

During this assessment, CNA examined common practices and policies that law enforcement agencies use within their field training, such as the qualifications an officer must have to become an FTO ... Officer Impact Assessment: Field Guide, trainers are more often paired with a trainee based on their availability, and less often based on a formalized assessment to measure the compatibility of the trainer-trainee. While some agencies noted their pairing practices were based on availability due to a shortage of training officers, most agencies did complete an informal personality assessment

Drone Strikes in Pakistan Reasons to Assess Civilian Casualties
/reports/2014/drone-strikes-in-pakistan-reasons-to-assess-civilian-casualties
CNA analyzed publically available data to determine the likelihood of civilian harm per strike in the drone campaign in Pakistan. From this data, we see that the U.S. has improved its ability to reduce civilian casualties during drone strikes in Pakistan over the past several years, as measured in the percentage of strikes causing civilian casualties and the number of civilian casualties occurring per incident.

Analytic Framework for Emulating Russian Decision Making
/reports/2017/analytic-framework-for-emulating-russian-decision-making
The purpose of this report is to propose an analytical framework for emulating Russian decision-making in the national security realm. The framework is paired with a methodology that allows the user to systematically examine what Russian decision- making would look like in response to a foreign policy crisis. The framework is presented in the first section and then applied to three potential crisis scenarios in Eastern Europe. The analytical structure presented is meant to be used as a guideline. It offers potential answers, tools, and a systematic method for emulation that allows users to formulate decision-trees for Russian actions on the basis of reasonable assumptions about how Russia might act in various situations. The final product can be further developed and refined on the basis of observation of Russian actions in future interactions with its adversaries and behavior in crisis situations.
several sources: what we know about Russian decision-making, what we know about how rational leaders calculate risk, the behavior of states in the international system, and distinct elements of Russian ... a complex adversary. Key elements of the framework The model begins with a strategic assessment by Russian leadership of the situation and how it fits into the grander scheme of their security concerns, ambitions, strategy for the region, and geopolitical confrontation with the United States. The strategic assessment serves as an intellectual template or base for Russian decision- making
