Greetings! Welcome to TIDES' November newsletter. This issue includes updates on the STAR-TIDES network's response to Hurricane Sandy a summary of Dr. Linton Wells II and Sam Bendett's recent paper on public-private cooperation and info about exhibiting at  AFCEA West. Also see below fo details about TIDES meet-ups.

The STAR-TIDES Network Responds to
Hurricane Sandy

Sandy From October 29th through the 31st, Hurricane Sandy raged along the mid-Atlantic region, its high winds and plentiful rain causing extensive damage and flooding, particularly in New Jersey and New York. The STAR-TIDES network was active throughout the duration of the storm, mapping sites where residents could find important resources, coordinating with FEMA and DHS, and organizing volunteers preparing to deploy to areas hard hit by the storm. Now the TIDES Project is working in partnership with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to support a multidimensional initiative headed by FEMA to both problem solve and create lessons learned for the overall Sandy response. FEMA has asked the team, which includes several organizations from the RELIEF field experimentation community, to support the Sandy response by finding non-traditional solutions to complex problems and exploring how we can get take-aways from the overall response to create requirements for future disaster response research at Camp Roberts-RELIEF quarterly field experiments.

Public-Private Cooperation in the Department of Defense
Dr. Linton Wells II and Samuel Bendett of the TIDES  project recently released a paper analyzing the use of public- private cooperation (PPC) for defense and national security aims. In Public - Private Cooperation in the Department of Defense: A Framework for Analysis and Recommendations for Action, Wells and Bendett recognize that PPC has the potential to promote DoD policy objectives, improve U.S. operational abilities, reduce program costs, develop partner capacity, and provide the DoD with valuable access to expertise and assets from outside the military realm. However, the authors note that there are several important changes that must be made if PPC is to become a successful and acceptable part of DoD strategy.
