An essential and page-turning narrative on the history of drone warfare by the acclaimed author of Rumsfeld, exploring how this practice emerged, who made it happen, and the real consequences of targeted killing Assassination by drone is a subject of deep and enduring fascination. Yet few understand how and why this has become our principal way of waging war. Kill Chain uncovers the real and extraordinary story; its origins in long-buried secret programs, the breakthroughs that made UAV operations possible, the ways in which the technology works and, despite official claims, does not work. Taking the reader inside the well-guarded world of national security, the book reveals the powerful interests - military, CIA and corporate - that have led the drive to kill individuals by remote control. Most importantly of all, the book describes what has really happened when the theories underpinning the strategy -- and the multi-billion dollar contracts they spawn -- have been put to the test. Drawing on sources deep in the military and intelligence establishments, Andrew Cockburn's Kill Chain unveils the true effects, as demonstrated by bloody experience, of assassination warfare, a revelation that readers will find surprising as well as shocking.

Kaum jemand hatte von der Firma Blackwater gehört, als am 16. September 2007 im Irak 17 Zivilisten erschossen wurden – von einem Söldnertrupp. Schnell stellte sich heraus, dass sie zu einer Art Privatarmee gehörten, die im Irak und anderswo für die USA Krieg führt, unbemerkt von der Öffentlichkeit und immun gegen Strafverfolgung. Blackwater: die mächtigste militärische Dienst­leis­tungsfirma der Welt. Ihr Gründer Erik Prince, Multimillionär und christlicher Fundamentalist, hat beste Kontakte zur Regierung. Und erkennt nach dem 11. September 2001, wie viel Geld sich mit dem »Outsourcing« militärischer Leistungen verdienen lässt: Bushs »Krieg gegen den Terror« ist die Steilvorlage für den kometenhaften Aufstieg der Firma. Blackwaters Elitesoldaten schützen US-Politiker und Geschäftsleute im Irak – gegen ein Gehalt, von dem GIs nur träumen können. Blackwater kann bei Bedarf Truppen und eine Flugzeugflotte zur Verfügung stellen, groß genug, Regierungen zu stürzen. Blackwaters Söldner bewachen Öl-Pipelines, seine »Sicherheitskräfte« patrouillierten nach Katrina in den Straßen von New Orleans. Doch erst jetzt fällt dem US-Kongress auf, dass die martialischen Rambos keinerlei parlamentarischer Kontrolle, keiner Gerichtsbarkeit unterliegen. Mit seiner glänzend recherchierten Geschichte der Firma Blackwater zeigt Jeremy Scahill überzeugend auf, welche Gefahren der Demokratie drohen, wenn die Regierung ihr Gewaltmonopol privatisiert.

“...a much-needed handbook with contributions from well-chosen practitioners. A primary accomplishment is to provide guidance for those involved in modeling and simulation in support of Systems of Systems development, more particularly guidance that draws on well-conceived academic research to define concepts and terms, that identifies primary challenges for developers, and that suggests fruitful approaches grounded in theory and successful examples.” Paul Davis, The RAND Corporation Modeling and Simulation Support for System of Systems Engineering Applications provides a comprehensive overview of the underlying theory, methods, and solutions in modeling and simulation support for system of systems engineering. Highlighting plentiful multidisciplinary applications of modeling and simulation, the book uniquely addresses the criteria and challenges found within the field. Beginning with a foundation of concepts, terms, and categories, a theoretical and generalized approach to system of systems engineering is introduced, and real-world applications via case studies and examples are presented. A unified approach is maintained in an effort to understand the complexity of a single system as well as the context among other proximate systems. In addition, the book features: Cutting edge coverage of modeling and simulation within the field of system of systems, including transportation, system health management, space mission analysis, systems engineering methodology, and energy State-of-the-art advances within multiple domains to instantiate theoretic insights, applicable methods, and lessons learned from real-world applications of modeling and simulation The challenges of system of systems engineering using a systematic and holistic approach Key concepts, terms, and activities to provide a comprehensive, unified, and concise representation of the field A collection of chapters written by over 40 recognized international experts from academia, government, and industry A research agenda derived from the contribution of experts that guides scholars and researchers towards open questions Modeling and Simulation Support for System of Systems Engineering Applications is an ideal reference and resource for academics and practitioners in operations research, engineering, statistics, mathematics, modeling and simulation, and computer science. The book is also an excellent course book for graduate and PhD-level courses in modeling and simulation, engineering, and computer science.

Mithilfe eines klar umrissenen Projekts ein akzeptables Sicherheitsniveau erreichen Die Nutzung international anerkannter Standards und deren Übersetzung in die Unternehmenswirklichkeit Strukturierte Vorgehensweise anhand konkreter Aufgaben: Transparenz schaffen, Regeln einführen und Audits durchführen Gerade in der heutigen vernetzten Welt ist IT-Sicherheit unverzichtbar: Kein Unternehmen arbeitet mehr autark, alle sind miteinander durch Netzwerke, regen Datenaustausch oder Mailverkehr verbunden. Das Thema ist komplex und insbesondere kleine und mittelständische Betriebe fürchten sich vor einer zu großen Herausforderung – zu Unrecht. Thomas W. Harich zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie mit den Mitteln und dem Vokabular alltäglicher Projekte auch die Sicherheit Ihrer IT erfolgreich angehen können – mit Ihren unternehmenseigenen »Bordmitteln«. Das IT-Sicherheitsprojekt hat dabei einen definierten Anfang und ein definiertes Ende – somit sind Aufwand und Nutzen gut kalkulierbar. Der Autor teilt das Projekt übersichtlich in die drei großen Bereiche »Transparenz schaffen«, »Regeln einführen« und »Audits durchführen«. Sie lernen die Grundbegriffe der IT-Sicherheit kennen und werden Schritt für Schritt durch das Projekt geführt. Detaillierte Aufgaben und Arbeitspakete zeigen Ihnen strukturiert, was wann wie zu tun ist. Dabei unterscheidet Thomas W. Harich immer zwischen den Zielen der »Basissicherheit« und der »Erweiterten IT-Sicherheit«. Grundlage sind international anerkannte Normen der ISO-2700x-Reihe, die Vorgaben des Bundesamtes für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) sowie Erfahrungen aus der Praxis. So können Sie mithilfe dieses Buches und der in der Praxis erprobten Vorgehensweise IT-Sicherheit in Ihrem Unternehmen flächendeckend umsetzen und ein hohes Sicherheitsniveau erreichen.
