Small Arms For Urban Combat: A Review Of Modern... LINK

The Small Arms Survey 2001: Profiling the Problem is an authoritative guide to all aspects of the problem of small arms and light weapons. It focuses on both small arms themselves (production, transfers, stockpiles), and on the processes and impacts of their world-wide proliferation.

Small Arms for Urban Combat: A Review of Modern...


Specific sections deal with issues such as arms brokering, the role of small arms and light weapons in particular conflict zones, current international initiatives and projects to stem their proliferation, and with broader social and economic effects (crime, public health, development).

The Small Arms Survey 2002: Counting the Human Cost includes new and updated information and analysis on global small arms production, stockpiles and legal and illicit transfers, and a review of international, regional and national measures to address the issue of small arms proliferation. The Small Arms Survey is now recognised as the principal international source of impartial and reliable information on all aspects of small arms. Its blend of information and analysis makes it an indispensable resource for policy-makers, officials and non-governmental organisations.

The Small Arms Survey 2004: Rights at Risk provides original research and updated information on small arms production, stockpiles, and trade. In focusing on the links between small arms and the abuse of human rights, this edition explores the impact of arms exports to areas of conflict, the role of weapons in global violence and crime, and the implementation of human rights standards by police forces worldwide. The Survey also features in-depth coverage of issues such as the growing concern over MANPADS and the role of small arms in the Pacific and Kyrgyzstan.

The Small Arms Survey 2006: Unfinished Business offers new and updated information on small arms production, stockpiles, transfers, and measures, including a review of the International Tracing Instrument.

The second thematic section explores various aspects of small arms transfers, including the value of the authorized trade, national controls, and weapons tracing. Additional chapters focus on small arms measures and impacts.

Field training curriculums at the OCTC can vary from M1A2 Abrams tank operations to urban combat operations at the Combined Arms Collective Training Facility (CACTF) to small arms weaponry at any of the many firing ranges. In addition to the many capabilities at the OCTC, the garrison area of the 204th RTI on Gowen Field offers a Leadership Reaction Course, simulators, and a top of the line collegiate level running track adjacent to the fully equipped fitness center.

Historically, the land comprising the JBCC was home to the Wampanoag tribe, who used the area for daily living and sacred sites. Before becoming fully used as a military installation, part of the land that makes up the reservation was used for sheep farming and the trees were harvested for the shipbuilding trade. So, what is the JBCC today? Of its 22,000 acres, 15,000 acres comprise the northern training area, the major training area for Army National Guard soldiers in the Northeast, where soldiers practice maneuvering exercises and bivouacking, or camping, and use the small arms ranges. The northern 15,000 acres of the JBCC is the largest piece of undeveloped land on Cape Cod and is home to 37 state-listed species living in a variety of habitats throughout the base. The JBCC also sits atop an underground aquifer that supplies drinking water to Upper Cape Cod. In the cantonment or developed area in the southern part of the base are training support facilities such as training simulators, hangars and support facilities for Massachusetts Army National Guard aviation units and the Massachusetts Air National Guard 102nd Intelligence Wing, 253rd Combat Communications Group and U.S. Coast Guard facilities, including Coast Guard family housing, with almost 2,000 residents. The JBCC is home to five military commands, including the Massachusetts Army National Guard at Camp Edwards; the Massachusetts Air National Guard at Otis Air National Guard Base; the 253rd Combat Communications Group, also at Otis Air National Guard Base; the 6th Space Warning Squadron phased array radar site at Cape Cod Air Force Station; and the U.S. Coast Guard at Air Station Cape Cod. These military commands work to protect the land, sea, and air of the northeastern United States. In addition, many military units and service members who work and train at the JBCC are participating in missions around the world. Three programs are also at work cleaning up and protecting the environmental resources on and under the JBCC. The Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment's Installation Restoration Program is responsible for the investigation and cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination from past military practices. The The Army National Guard's Impact Area Groundwater Study Program manages the investigation and cleanup of groundwater contamination and its sources on and emanating from the northern 15,000 acres. The Massachusetts National Guard Environmental & Readiness Center is dedicated to conducting all training at the JBCC in a manner that is protective of the environment now and in the future. The Environmental & Readiness Center also serves as the community's link for information on the JBCC.

From what we can tell via the imagery taken by aviation photographer Raven Harris, the rifle uppers are from the highly respected AR-15 manufacturer Noveske located in Grants Pass, Oregon. Noveske has a reputation that borders on mythic in the firearms community and it isn't a surprise that SEAL Team Six's notoriously capable armorers would reach out to them to satisfy some of the team's needs. Between 2007 and 2020, the US Navy awarded multiple contracts to Noveske worth a combined total of nearly $4.9 million, according to records available through the Federal Procurement Database System. These deals came through various different offices within the service, including the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division in Indiana, which has crafted various specialized small arms for Naval Special Warfare Command over the years.

The conflict environment in Libya is characterized by continued pervasive insecurity amidst the widespread availability of small arms and light weapons (SALW). After the First Civil War, armed brigades took the law into their own hands and the resulting violence terminated a short-lived post-conflict period that has relapsed into a Second Civil War. The Libyan government has struggled to assert authority over armed groups and these brigades, refusing to disarm have contributed directly the initiation of a second conflict; some are motivated by self-defense, status, criminality, vindication or political aims.

Once, a bastion of public health in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the country now faces a substantial and unprecedented challenge: to rebuild a devastated health system amidst the burden of armed violence and the proliferation of small and light weapons (SALW) especially firearms of various kinds. The health system in Libya is compromised; healthcare professionals have little time to record or document such cases given the immediate clinical needs of the patient. This corresponding decreased capacity to deal with an increasing demand on services caused by SALW-related morbidity compounds the challenge of data collection and indicates that external support and advocacy are required.

The conflict environment in Libya is characterized by a widespread availability of small arms and light weapons (SALW). Once a bastion of public health in the Middle East and North Africa, the country now faces a substantial challenge: to rebuild a devastated health system amidst the scourge of SALW proliferation and relapsing civil war [57]. The International Crisis group has reported that over 125,000 weapons were in the hands of civilians by the end of the civil war ([22] p. i).

Measuring the public health impact of SALW poses difficulties in the post-conflict environment when surveillance data are sparse [58], particularly for violence against specific groups such as women ([30] p.138). Public health reporting systems are still lacking, without any needs assessment published to date [57]. The surveillance system identified for review here is one that involves the health system reporting of firearms injuries. The importance of public health reporting systems i.e. to collect injury surveillance data with the use of existing tools for injury prevention action is well-established [65]. By improving the recognition of recording SALW mortality and morbidity a crucial step is made towards understanding the root causes and subsequently targeting of interventions [37]. Other outcome variables to consider are crime rates, attitudes and beliefs. Economic data such as the direct medical costs of providing health services may also provide measurable outcomes toward the assessment of burden.

Prior to 2013, the arms trade was regulated by the Programme of Action, and regional controls. The 2013 Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is the first international legally-binding instrument to control transfer of conventional arms. The treaty is intended to limit conflict diversion, corruption and improve responsibility for arms deals. An ATT which controls the availability and transfer of small arms is important, but necessitates international enforcement procedures to ensure the legitimacy of the ATT. 041b061a72
