Artillery is a branch capable of effectively supporting the dynamic operations performed by combat forces, with a decisive role in neutralizing, destroying or annihilating the opponent’s capabilities, harassing and banning the actions of troops by executing a precise, effective and timely fire to obtain the expected effects. It uses high-tech subsystems and intelligent ammunition, while the concentration of fire and means is flexible, and the possibility of measuring and evaluating the effects on the target is high, due to the precise means of identification, research, selection and tracking a multitude of fixed or mobile land targets, either planned or unplanned. The ability of the artillery to act in the composition of joint tactical groups gives it an additional utility at tactical level, while the actions of the artillery are complex and ubiquitous in stability and peacekeeping operations, even near the contact alignment, with a strong impact for a wider range of scenarios.
In this paper we will analyze and measure how one of the most common phenomena that causes dysfunctions in organizations – burnout – is present among students. In order to achieve this goal, we will study how the three dimensions of burnout, namely: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and reduction of professional achievement are manifested in the chosen sample.
This new era brings new promises of technology that will bring economic and societal benefits. Artificial Intelligence is to be the disruptor for work and even military technological applications. However, developers and end-users will play keys roles in how this technology is developed and ultimately used. Among these two groups, there are cybersecurity concerns that need to be considered. In this paper, the researchers address the process of secure development and testing. Also, for the end-user appropriate methods, procedures, and recommendations are defined that can mitigate the overall use of this technology within an enterprise.
As data centers have increased in size, there has been a need to create clusters out of cheaper, more affordable commodity parts that can easily be replaced upon failure, and that create more affordable data centers overall. However, such large clusters are still outside of feasibility for individuals and small businesses. It is a worthwhile exercise to see if much smaller clusters could be created for such applications, and to compare their performance / price measure to that of the previous traditional data centers. For this paper, such a cluster is created using Raspberry Pis which are small-sized, single-board computers. A data sharing model is built in Python using message passing interface (MPI) that ran on the cluster of the four Raspberry Pis. So as to evaluate the performance of the system, some greedy algorithms are created. During the implementation process, previously unknown skills, including how to create a cluster, programming the infrastructure are learnt.
At present, humanity is facing a multitude of problems caused by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, that requires a continuous adaptation to all organizational levels. Regarding the management of organizations, it is clear that this one has to be adapted to the current situation and to the needs of members of the organizations which have also undergone profound changes. In this regard, leaders at all levels of the organization must act flexibly, be attentive to the needs of teams and reshape their leadership style to respond to the uncertain realities that govern the world order.
The study presents a novel interpretation of information operations due to changes of military operations and operational environment. It analyses the concepts of information operations of NATO and the great powers. Based on these, it creates a comprehensive definition of information operations and categorizes their capabilities. The paper presents the interaction between the technical and cognitive capabilities of information operations and the role and weight of these capabilities in traditional military operations and during the 4th generation military operations in a civilian environment.
The paper carries out a study based on the procedural approach of quality management in the educational system, with application on the military field, in order to measure organizational performance. Therefore, the evaluation methodology comprises a series of steps that can be found as subchapters in the paper. The procedural approach of performance evaluation allows the development of an integrated vision of the interdependencies and interactions between the specific processes, which favors an efficient analysis of the quality and quantity of the obtained results. The conclusions of the analysis are materialized in measures to improve the organizational processes, thus contributing to the achievement of an efficient quality management in the educational system.
Why the decision? Because we have to make decisions every day, more important or less important decisions that lead our lives in a certain direction, in both cases being necessary to choose between several courses of action. The decision is part of our lives and making the optimal decision is important, whether it comes from managers or from regular individuals. An organizational environment characterized by insecurity, frequent and sudden changes has a negative impact on the management of an organization. Under these circumstances, the reaction to these changes, instabilities materialize in quick, correct decisions that induce organizational stability. The main objective of the article is to analyze the decision-making process within the organizations that constitute the private environment in Sibiu. The question that the article wants to answer is: the expertise (knowledge, theories, methods) of managers in decision making sufficient or does this new context require an adaptation, reorganization of the decision-making process? The article contains a qualitative interview-based investigation, which is the premise of a comprehensive research based on a questionnaire to provide solutions to the problems identified.
The article highlights the importance of the systems on board the NATO E-3A platform and how they influence the mission and work of the aircrew. The E-3A is an Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) system designed to provide early warning information to battle managers through surveillance of airborne and maritime objects, and to provide aircraft control capabilities. Even though the system is integrated on the old airframe of Boeing 707, in the past 35 years there have been numerous upgrades. The biggest upgrade of them all is the conversion of the entire fleet of aircraft to the NATO Mid-Term (NMT) configuration and then to “glass cockpit”. Now, the fleet is embarking upon a final modernization effort to extend its service life to 2035.
