  • 2. Human Domain Focus Day March 17, 2014 Main Summit March 18-19, 2014 Dear Colleagues, After more than a decade of focused efforts in the Middle East, the United States Special Operations Forces will once again be rebalancing their posturing abilities to cover all corners of the globe. To match this anywhere-anytime mission the FY 2014 USSOCOM Budget has increased by over 170M USD – making it one of the few, if only, sectors of the US government to not just avoid cuts but to increase its spending ability. While the ability to spend has increased for Special Operations, its restructuring and positioning mean radical changes in what SOF require in terms of training, equipment and technology. Special Operations West will not only facilitate understanding of these changes, but will aid in strengthening communication relationships between the military and the private defense industry through both individual session speakers and through mixed discussion panels. Special Operations West will take an in depth look at the current and upcoming changes for USSOCOM and SOF to ensure attendees have a complete understanding of Special Operations’ aims and needs. Join us for solution oriented discussion on the current military-industry relationship, its current impediments, and its future success. At Special Operations West we will examine the changes and advancements within United States Special Operations Command through the view points of its commanders and its SOF on the ground. We will also hone in on specific programs that highlight the changing mission of USSOCOM globally, especially those that are located in in the Pacific theater and whose directorates are on the West coast. The two main factors we’ll discuss are the changing strategy of war and the human domain. Be sure to join us in March to gain in-depth insight into the United States military’s elite forces’ way forward. Very Respectfully, Coronado, CA www.SpecialOperationsWest.com Hear What Previous Special Operations Attendees Have said “This show provided an excellent opportunity for private industry and the federal government to exchange ideas on improvements that are occurring in the operational arena within the federal government and advances in technology occurring in the private industry.” - DTC Communications “Immensely helpful...the people we meet, the ideas that were exchanged and the support received are certainly parts of the ongoing value of these conferences.” - National Geospatial Intelligence Agency P.S.

  • 3. Human Domain Focus Day Monday, March 17, 2014 “…to win you must remove the will or means…attacking the will is very difficult, so we traditionally focus on removing the means…” – Clausewitz Registration & Coffee 12:00 Lunch 9:00 The Human Domain – The Importance of Regions and Cultures 1:00 De-radicalizing Detainees and Case Study: The Human Solution to Anti-Tunneling Gain a greater insight into the importance of the Human Domain by taking a look at how it has been utilized by the United States Military in the past and present. By studying the region and cultures that a particular operation will take place in soldiers are better able to build a civilian network – one of the greatest assets available, and also one of the most difficult to obtain in the current geopolitical climate. Since the end of the Cold War the Human Domain has been largely left aside in favor of other more clear cut tactics – however, with the winding-down in Iraq and Afghanistan, and with SOFs’ and conventional combat forces’ increased presence in theaters worldwide, the Human Domain once again proves it is an integral part to all military operations. In this session the meaning and importance of the Human Domain will be explored, along with a look at where it could have the most influence in the future. By understanding the Human Domain itself, the training and technology that USSOCOM will require can be better pinpointed. DIA CENTCOM 8:00 What will be covered: Utilizing operational detainment as a key line for successfully completing missions • Understanding the use of people, case study: “The Great Escape” • Intelligence and security: finding the link and preparing operations • What will be covered: Defining the Human Domain • Explaining its importance, especially concerning USCENTCOM • What we have been doing with the Human Domain in the past and what we are doing now Session Leader: COL (R) James Brown Chief OCC-3 Defense Intelligence Agency • Session Leader: Kathleen Reedy, PhD SME Region and Culture US Central Command 10:00 2:00 • • Examining the role of the defense industry in the Human Domain Pinpointing the areas of expansion within LREC training Understanding where to focus regionally specific training in the future Sponsorship Opportunities Still Available! For more information contact Marc Zamarin at 212.885.2694 or sponsorship@idga.org. Linking Strategic Landpower to the Human Domain: Changing the Way SOF Operate The military domain is traditionally a physical one that joint forces strive to achieve positive influence or dominance over activities within its borders so that its interests fall in line with our own. And yet in this physical domain an important factor is excluded – the human domain. Between 1991 and now, the war theory norm disregarded human aspects focusing mostly on effects based operations, rapid decisive operations, and net-centric warfare. This move away from “easy war theories” means a change in what training SOF will require including language, dialects, cultural practices and political knowledge. This session will explore how SOF are uniquely suited to building influence and relationships critical to operations in high-risk locations globally. 3:00 Civil Affairs SOCPAC 11:00 What will be covered: Identifying the growing issue of linking military action to achieving national objectives • Explaining why Joint Force combat power alone is insufficient for strategic success • Describing SOFs role in preparing environments to facilitate future operations • Session Leader: William Moore Campaign Theater Planner US Special Operations Command Pacific LTC Luke Donohue Security Cooperation US Pacific Command 3 www.SpecialOperationsWest.com By, With and Thru: Foreign Military and SOF Partnerships and Natural Disaster Relief Operations Learn firsthand how the United States military is working with foreign partners, both conventional and special operations, to aid the victims of natural disasters world-wide. From the Philippines to Kenya the global network of first responders is often military in nature and only through cooperation can the sometimes tens of thousands affected be rescued and aided in rebuilding their lives. This session will present case studies of SOF working with foreign military bodies in regions struck by natural disasters and the techniques, weapons, and equipment that are required in such situations now and in the future. What will be covered: • First hand account from the Philippines • First hand account Africa • Pros, cons, and what more we could be doing Session Leader: COL (R) William Coultrup Former Legislative Director USSOCOM Obtaining Language, Regional Expertise, and Cultural (LREC) Training for SOF-wide Support • Over the past decade it has become apparent that long term detention does not unmake a radical – in some occurrences it can in fact exacerbate radicalism and allow it to grow. This session will first look at how current and future detainees can be rehabilitated and how this can aid in operations, especially when it comes to prisoners being held together. The problem of Anti-tunneling (effectively, stopping prisoners from tunneling out from prisons) has been an issue that has plagued US Armed Forces for decades> In this session the problems tunneling has presented and the eventual solution that was discovered will be examined in depth to better highlight the necessity of including the human domain in all military operation strategies. 4:00 • Conventional Civil Affairs and the SOF Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations in the public’s mind have long fallen into the real of Anti-Soviet spy networks and subliminal messaging in Saturday morning commercials. The realty may have some roots in these myths but their importance for both conventional combat forces and special operations forces should not be underestimated. This session will explore the role of Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations in all aspects of the military – how they differ and how they work together. By better understanding the importance of the Human Domain, we can conclude that these tactical forces must be utilized to their greatest advantage – including the training provided by the defense industry. What will be covered: • What is are conventional forces doing with Civil Affairs and how it ties in with SOF • The re-emergence of psychological operations and their use throughout US military history • Where Civil Affairs and PSYOPS hopes to go in the future Session Leader: Major General Jeffrey Jacobs Commanding General US Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations End of Focus Day 1-800-882-8684 • idga@idga.org
