These camera-equipped dog goggles keep special-forces canines connected to their handlers

But the doggles don’t come cheap.

Fusil and his gugglets Concepts
When Thomas was a special forces dog handler in the gendarmerie—a French militarized police force—he found it worrisome when he lost sight of his canine, Fusil. The pooch was trained to follow a laser beam that allows the handler to point to objects or places that are far away, and to work at night or other low-light conditions. But when the dog went out of view, he could not, of course, see what its status was.
“I had no way of knowing where he was, what he was seeing, or of giving him an order without raising my voice,” he says. “I just had to wait until he came back.”
So Thomas—who prefers that we not reveal his last name as he is still on active duty in the gendarmerie—started thinking about how to resolve these problems. He wanted to be able to see where the dog was, and to give it orders that only the animal would hear. And the system had to be comfortable and easy for it to wear.

Veterans need VHIC for in-person Commissary, Military Exchange, MWR access

The Defense Department has announced expanded Commissary, Military Service Exchange and MWR access Jan. 1 and established a standard for physical access to military installations.
Veterans who are eligible and want to take advantage of in-person benefits must have a Veterans Health Identification Card, or VHIC. Primary Family Caregivers must have an eligibility letter from VA’s Office of Community Care.
Veterans use VHICs for identification and check-in at VA appointments, but will also use them for base access under the new program.
Veterans eligible solely under this act who are eligible to obtain a Veteran Health Identification Card must use this credential for in-person installation and privilege access. The card must display the Veteran’s eligibility status (i.e., PURPLE HEART, FORMER POW or SERVICE CONNECTED).
Veterans eligible solely under this act who are not enrolled in or are not eligible to enroll in VA health care, or who are enrolled in VA health care, but do not possess a Veteran Health Identification Card will not have access to DoD and Coast Guard installations for in-person commissary, exchange, and MWR retail privileges, but will have full access to online exchanges and American Forces Travel.
Medal of Honor recipients and Veterans with 100% service-connected disability ratings are eligible for DoD credentials under DoD policy.

US Solider is killed in Afghanistan 2 days before Christmas

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An American service member was killed in combat Monday in Afghanistan, the U.S. military said, without providing further details, while the Taliban claimed they were behind a roadside bombing in northern Kunduz province that killed the U.S. soldier.

The latest fatality brings the number of U.S. deaths in Afghanistan this year to 20. There have also been three non-combat deaths in 2019. More than 2,400 Americans have died in the nearly 18-year conflict.

The Taliban now control or hold sway over practically half of Afghanistan but continue to stage near-daily attacks targeting Afghan and U.S. forces, as well as government officials — even as they hold peace talks with a U.S. envoy tasked with negotiating an end to what has become America’s longest war. Scores of Afghan civilians are also killed in the crossfire or by roadside bombs planted by militants.

Caliburn International Helps Worldwide Community Avoid Deadly Explosive Hazards Through Training – October 25, 2019

U.S. Ambassador Cherith Norman Chalet (right) presents a copy of one of 12 U.S.-developed training manuals to UN Under-Secretary-General for Peace Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix (left) (U.S. Department of State photo).
RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Caliburn International, a professional services company serving national defense, international diplomacy, and homeland security clients, has developed new United Nations (UN) training materials focused on eliminating improvised explosive device (IED) threats that are impeding global peacekeeping operations.
In recent years, international peacekeeping missions have become more complex and dangerous. From 2015-2018, a total of 154 UN peacekeepers were killed in malicious attacks in operations. In a growing number of incidents, IEDs were the weapon of choice.
Funded through the U.S. Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) in partnership with the U.S. Department of State and the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS), Caliburn has created 11 training manuals focused on improvised explosive device disposal (IEDD) and conventional munitions disposal (CMD) training. The training integrates classroom instruction and practical exercises utilizing current industry best practices.
“The goal of the project was to create a complete, standardized training curriculum that would enable UN and international organizations to teach CMD, IEDD, hazard awareness, and IED threat mitigation skills using a common internationally recognized lexicon and an agreed upon set of standards,” said Mike Pate, Senior Vice President and Head of Caliburn’s Munitions and Environmental Remediation line of business.
“We are proud to serve as an integral part in this global effort to generate improved capacity to defeat these deadly explosive hazards and further improve the interoperability of UN peacekeeping forces,” said C.D. Moore, Caliburn’s Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President.
UNMAS and capacity-building partners such as the U.S. have increased support for counter-IED and related training for troop and police contributing countries. However, the differences in training standards across the UN and other training providers have hampered the effectiveness of such efforts, until now.
UNMAS rolled out the new course materials at an international workshop, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Africa Command, in Nairobi.

Caliburn International Renovates Al-Sqor Primary School in Iraq – October 21, 2019

Caliburn Chief Operating Officer, C.D. Moore, attends a Grand Opening Ceremony for the newly renovated Al-Sqor Primary School in Bakar Village on September 29, 2019.
Reston, Va. – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Caliburn International, LLC (Caliburn) recently completed a renovation of the Al-Sqor Primary School in Bakar Village. Located a short distance from Balad Air Base in Iraq, the village has endured years of conflict and unrest from the Iraq War through the insurgence, contributing to the school’s state of disrepair.
Caliburn identified specific needs to address in the renovation, focusing on shielding students from inclement weather, providing access to functional restrooms/washrooms, and enhancing classroom resources for the 600 boys and girls who attend the school each year.
“This was a wonderful opportunity to give back to the local community, which has always been supportive of Caliburn’s work in Iraq. Many of our Iraqi employees have children who attend the Al-Sqor Primary School, and we wanted them to have access to a clean, safe, and comfortable environment,” said Caliburn’s Chief Operating Officer, C.D. Moore.
Completed in three weeks, the renovation included cleaning and sanitizing all interior surfaces, repairing the roof, replacing classroom ceiling fans, replacing broken windows, replacing plumbing fixtures and restoring the bathrooms to working order, cleaning the school grounds and removing all debris, repairing classroom floors, and providing new desks and seats for the students.
Renovations were completed in advance of the start of the school year on September 25, 2019. Moore attended a Grand Opening Ceremony at the school on September 29, along with the Balad Base Commander and community leaders. At the ceremony, Caliburn distributed school supplies and dental care kits to the incoming students.

Janus Global Operations team clears vital Iraqi road of IEDs – October 4 2018

The Janus Global Operations team operating in Iraq on behalf of the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement continues to assist Iraqi forces in making Iraq safe for its citizens. Demining experts from Janus Global, an integrated stability operations company, recently disarmed large improvised explosive devices (IED) embedded in and near a main Iraqi roadway near Baghdad.

The explosive devices, hidden in six sites, totaled nearly 400 pounds of explosives. They were found within a 100-meter stretch of a main supply road between Amariyah and Fallujah, about 20 miles west of Baghdad, Iraq’s capital city. The IEDs, neutralized by Janus Global, included five artillery shells ranging in size from 105 millimeters to 155-millimeters; one directional fragmentation charge, and an IED composed of three charges placed in 5-gallon fuel cans. Insurgents wired the devices so that they could be detonated from a distance.

Iraq’s Security Forces (ISF), while conducting a security sweep, discovered what appeared to be IEDs embedded (buried) in a main road and placed in a nearby culvert. The insurgents placed aiming markers on the roadsides to know at what point detonations would do the most damage to vehicles and the people in them.

Before commencing operations, Janus Global first used an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to survey the site. Aerial reconnaissance revealed four IED positions. Two more were discovered during further exploration. When work began, Iraqi Forces established a perimeter around the worksite for area security, and Janus Global personal security staff kept watch over two explosive ordnance removal teams working from opposite ends of the road for close protection.

The IEDs were connected by command wires to a firing point in a house about 250 meters from the road. Using advanced mine detection and clearance equipment and procedures, the teams isolated the IEDs and cut them off from the possibility of remote detonation.

The teams had to literally dig the buried IEDs out of the road, which is quite dangerous.  After ensuring the IEDs were no longer a threat, Janus Global repaired the road, which is a vital link between the Amariyah and Fallujah communities.
