FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MOBILE-FIRST AND RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN (RWD): From government mandates to private sector best practices, smartphones, tablets and the “next big thing” are changing the priorities in user-centric Web design.

Abstract As mobile Web subscribers reach critical mass, government as well as private sector organizations must give them a full experience of their websites, optimized for smartphones and tablets. The first generation of mobile Web called for tandem designs for laptop and Web platforms. When more users access your site via mobile, that separation no longer works. In contrast, a mobile-first approach is creating a website with the focus on mobile devices’ design, content and functionality first. Then Web designers can further enhance this mobile-first site for larger device displays. With mobile Web accessibility mandated by the U.S. Federal Government and increasingly standard among corporations, responsive Web design provides a flexible upward compatibility with today’s devices as well as tomorrow’s yet unanticipated platforms.

On behalf of our private and public sector clients, TMP Worldwide and its wholly owned subsidiary, TMP Government, have been monitoring the implications of “mobile-first” and “responsive Web design (RWD).”1 Both of these complementary design philosophies indicate a major shift in developing a Web presence for organizations. Circumstances are rapidly dictating that organizations reconsider the traditional approach of designing first for larger screens and then modifying a site for handheld devices. The desktop/laptop-first methodologies can no longer hold sway with the smartphones and tablets that will soon surpass them in Web traffic. As Internet mobility assumes its place as a medium of choice for personal and work life, organizations must consider making it the starting point for a onesize-adaptively-fits-all website. This decision, however, may not be clear cut and allowed to prevail in all circumstances. TMP believes that the following five principles can help you decide if mobile-first and responsive Web design are right for your situation.

This paper looks at so-called “responsive” and “adaptive” Web design as similar terms, referring to a user-centric approach that easily “adapts” and “responds” to the needs of users for as full a Web experience as possible on many devices. However, leading designers, like Aaron Gustafson, distinguish “adaptive” as a more all-encompassing term and “responsive” as a sub-set:

Principle #1: Mobility is the new desktop, and mobile-first is worthy of consideration. In December 2009, only 1 percent of global Internet traffic was mobile. By May 2012, that throughput had increased tenfold. Mobile now counts for 8 percent of U.S. e-commerce. Apps and Web advertising revenues have increased from $0.7 billion in 2008 to $12 billion at the end of 2011. Perhaps most remarkable, in India in May 2012, mobile Internet usage surpassed desktop Internet usage. Most important, the migration to mobility can represent sweeping changes not only for technology, but for your business processes. What happens to our notions of geography if the present pace continues and mobile Internet usage worldwide overtakes other access by the middle of the decade?2 On June 5, 2012, Ericsson released its second Traffic and Market Report—On the Pulse of the Networked Society,3 showing even more rapid expansion over the next five years: • • • •

By 2017, 85 percent of the world’s population will have 3G high-speed mobile Internet coverage 50 percent of the world’s population will be covered by 4G in 2017 Smartphone subscriptions are expected to reach 3 billion in 2017 Mobile subscriptions reached 6.2 billion in Q1 2012 with 170 million new mobile subscriptions added during the quarter

iPhone and Android operating systems heightened the user experience. Even then the majority of organizations have continued to have a computer-first approach, designing first for the desktop or laptop screen, and then creating modified designs for handhelds. In terms of sociodynamics, mobile Web usage has long passed the early adopter stage and seems on course to achieve critical mass. Not surprisingly, corporations and government are realizing that they can no longer relegate a mobile website to second class status. In fact, they need to consider the opposite: Make mobile devices their first priority.

MOBILE WEB USAGE IS GROWING Desktop Users Mobile Users







While mobile Web access dates back to the late 1990s with the Nokia 900 Communicator Phone (1996) and NTT DoCoMo’s commercial launch of iMode (1999), Web designers tended not to take mobile seriously until the

Although present mobile Internet usage hovers at 10 percent of the total, in her annual presentation on Internet trends (May 30, 2012), Mary Meeker of venture capitalist firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers views mobile Internet traffic as a factor toward the “re-imagination of nearly everything.” For example, in January 2012, 29 percent of American adults owned a tablet or eReader, up from only 2 percent three years ago:


The press release states: “The main continuous trend identified in the report is that everything is going mobile. This evolution is mainly being driven by people’s increasing demand for anywhere, anytime connectivity and the use of video, cloud-based services and the Internet–but also by machine-to-machine connectivity.” See

Principle #2: Mobile-first creates a better experience for users on all platforms.

The mobile future is already here, even in government, which usually lags behind the private sector. On May 23, 2012, the White House issued its Digital Government Strategy,4 a roadmap for customer-centric services depicting the way Americans communicate now and into the future. In that document, President Barack Obama directed all federal agencies to make at least two key services accessible via mobile devices and, in that same time frame, all domains must be made mobile accessible. In testifying before Congress on the day after release of the Strategy, Steven VanRoekel, Chief Information Officer of the United States Government and a former Microsoft executive, reiterated the White House’s resolve and urged that budget considerations not hinder innovation: “The Digital Government Strategy will provide a 12-month roadmap to jumpstart the use of smart mobile technology and improve delivery of digital services to the American people and our federal workforce. We must ensure that government information, data and services are available anywhere, anytime, on any device. The strategy will help agencies use modern tools and technologies to seize the digital opportunity and fundamentally change how the government serves both its internal and external customers, at lower costs. It will also lay out actions to ensure that as the government adjusts to this new digital world, we build the infrastructure needed to support digital government efforts to leverage the Federal Government’s buying power to reduce costs where appropriate.”5

In addition to the explosive growth of mobile usage, Web developer Luke Wroblewski cites two other compelling reasons for mobile first: • By forcing designers to focus on mobile-first, the Web experience is optimized for all Web users. Mobile devices require “software development teams to focus on only the most important data and actions in an application. There simply isn’t room in a 320 by 480 pixel screen for extraneous, unnecessary elements. You have to prioritize.” The upshot is a better user experience. • Mobile extends your general Web capabilities. The World Wide Web has been built on a foundation of rather simple capabilities (page markup, styling and scripting) determined by what Web browsers can support. Web application developers desperate to be innovative “have pushed the limits of JavaScript, browser plug-ins, and even Web browsers themselves to enable rich activities and interactions online.” But new mobile application platforms are introducing capabilities “that leave many PC-based Web browsers behind,” e.g., precise location information from GPS; user orientation from a digital compass; and multi-touch input from one or more simultaneous gestures. Wroblewski concludes that “building mobile first allows teams to utilize this full palette of capabilities to create rich context-aware applications instead of limiting themselves to an increasingly dated set of capabilities.”6

Principle #3: Optimizing your website for mobile from the beginning can make it upwardly compatible with whatever the future brings.

Mobile-first involves creating a website with the initial focus on its design, content and functionality for mobile devices. With this basic foundation in place, you can then add on enhancements for larger device displays. During every step of the website development process, optimization for mobile devices is at the forefront: 1. Architecture. Create structure and navigation to be user-friendly on a mobile device. 2. Design. Develop layouts to scale for mobile device screen sizes, and create graphic and verbal elements for viewing on the device. 3. Coding. Program the site to ensure that all functionality is accessible across the majority of mobile devices, and that the page’s load times are minimized as much as possible. There are, naturally, design trade-offs with a mobile-first approach. But making those trade-offs early on can help “future proof” your cross-platform design. By prioritizing the Web presence on a mobile device, you are taking a major step toward compatibility with yet unanticipated platforms. Mobile-first Web development not only ensures that your online presence is optimized (not just accessible) for mobile devices, but also that you have a user-friendly, engaging, dynamic website on other devices as well— tablets, laptops, desktops and the “next big thing” in mobility, e.g., automobile heads-up displays.

TMP, however, is not insisting that mobile-first can meet all organizational needs all the time. Building a separate mobile site remains the most common way that organizations, in general, meet mobile users’ needs. In the past, this was really the only way to make sure a site was optimized for mobile devices—features, design and functionality all needed to be developed separately from the “main” website. Usually, content is pared down and not all of the content or features of the full website are presented to mobile users when a separate site or application is built. For large sites with a great amount of content and many dynamic and/or interactive features, this approach may still be the best way to develop a mobile presence. If you have an extensive, functionality-rich site, we would likely recommend reducing the content to include key information and data in order to optimize the user’s mobile experience. An example is a large website which has many interactive complex data maps, charts and graphs that would not be feasible to replicate or make mobilefriendly. If the purpose of your mobile site is different from that of your main website, than two sites or a website and a mobile application may be the best option for you. Although some duplication of efforts is required to maintain both a standard website and mobile application, this may be the best way to provide users with the best experience across devices and platforms.

Principle #4: For existing sites, you can use adaptive Web design7 techniques without reinventing the wheel. Suppose as with many federal agencies and companies, your current website does not work well on mobile devices. Employing adaptive Web design techniques can help make those sites more mobile-friendly without rebuilding the site. Adaptive Web design uses flexible techniques similar to responsive Web design, but instead of starting from scratch, you can modify the existing site. Even here, mobile-first makes sense: Begin with the lowest common denominator of user experience, e.g., a smartphone, and then add “progressive enhancements” to work on more sophisticated browsers. Designing with users’ needs in mind, adaptive Web design employs varying levels of modern coding tools to add those elements to the site that help it adapt to the viewing device. Using adaptive Web design encompasses structure, design and technical development elements. Although much of the adaptation involves technical development, you cannot ignore the other aspects of the site.

While adaptive Web design creates one website for all devices, the site may not be fully optimized for some devices. Adaptive methodologies help to increase the number of devices that have a good user experience, yet they do not ensure that a maximum number of devices provide an optimized experience. These techniques work best in more modern browsers and devices; they may have some compatibility issues with older devices and browsers. However, if the goal is to make an existing website more device-compatible, then adaptive design provides a costeffective way to move forward.


Internet author Janine Warner discusses the differences between adaptive and responsive Web design in more detail on her Digital Family blog:

PRINCIPLE #5: Responsive Web design revolutionizes the Internet and your site to realize unique potential. In the early 1.0 days of Internet browsers, websites mimicked brochures: print-style grids with table-ofcontents buttons hyperlinking to back pages. You “read” the site from desktop or laptop. And hopefully the pages fit without undue amount of scrolling. Few had begun to realize the flexibilities inherent in the new form of media, especially its ability to adjust to multiple platforms. Consequently, even the second generation of sites looked at mobility as a separate technical challenge demanding its own scaled-down graphical interface and functionality. In a May 2010 article, entitled “Responsive Web Design,” designer Ethan Marcotte defined the alternative to the desktop-centric approach: Rather than tailoring disconnected designs to each of an ever-increasing number of Web devices, we can treat them as facets of the same experience. We can design for an optimal viewing experience, but embed standards-based technologies into our designs to make them not only more flexible, but more adaptive to the media device that renders them. In short, we need to practice responsive Web design.8 Responsive Web design accounts for device and platform changes by making changes to the layout, flow, display or functionality of a site based on the device on which it is presented. The end result is that you have one site available in an infinite number of browsers and platforms.

PRINCIPLE #5 (CONTINUED) Responsive Web design revolutionizes the Internet and your site to realize unique potential. Although the experience may differ according to the device, sites have one URL with one set of code to maintain. The site will adjust in design, layout and in some cases functionality as well for the specific device being used. For example, suppose a website has five main navigation items and four content areas above the fold on a desktop-size device. On a mobile device, it may consolidate the main navigation to three items and show only two content areas above the fold. The other content is all still available on the mobile device; it is simply presented in the manner most suited for the user’s device. Or a video plays while embedded in a page on a tablet, but on a smartphone one must open the YouTube app to view the video on its own. Ethan Marcotte himself was among the many collaborators in bringing these ideas to life through, a site created through responsive Web design.9 In its June 2012 issue, based on this pioneering effort, Fast Company magazine named Marcotte among its 100 Most Creative People in Business in 2012. The page devoted to Marcotte shows how the mobile-first design responds to users as they manipulate the news pages.10 The Society of New Designers (SND), an international organization for news media professionals and visual communicators, named the “World’s Best Designed Website.”11 The SND judge’s glowing citation on the revolutionary nature of the site illustrates the impact that responsive Web design is likely to have in the near future: “The launch of decisively raised the bar for digital news design. The Globe’s intrepid embrace of responsive design rewrote the equation of our industry’s expectations and ambitions and defined state-of-the-art across

the Web. Most importantly, the site embraces the increasingly chaotic ecosystem of devices without sacrificing thoughtfulness or splintering user experience. Much of the past 17 years of news design on the Web has been spent mapping analog conventions to digital experiences, sometimes quite crudely. The Globe site is a refreshing shift away from crafting news design as a single artifact and toward news design as an organism that responds to context, to device and to the user.” The designer Wilson Miner recently described responsive design as ‘one of those little shifts in thinking that cracks open a whole new set of questions and possibilities.’ And this is certainly true for The Globe, which is aggressively rebalancing the signal-to-noise ratio of storytelling and even rethinking the shape and behavior of advertising. “Working with a team of external developers and designers at The Filament Group and Upstatement, and with Ethan Marcotte, one of the thought leaders and authors of the book on responsive Web design, the Boston Globe staff created a remarkably beautiful design that allows content to sing with typography and grids, also while functioning across all platforms—from mobile to full desktop—and even adapt to a 13 year-old Apple Newton MessagePad. “It’s no small feat. The Globe’s responsive design is remarkable and deserves to be noted as one of the key moments in media design history, akin to USA Today’s embrace of color and graphics. Its impact will affect a generation of digital journalists and is an example of what’s possible when smart design and rich content is balanced with a focus on being standards-compliant and future-friendly across all platforms.”


Marcotte and other participants have told the full technical story in various places on the Web. At the Event Part Web designer conference in May 2011 in Boston, Jeremy Keith reported on Marcotte’s talk preliminary to the launch:

Conclusion: Mobile-first and responsive Web design are new ways to think about communications. TMP is presently working with clients on websites that use a mobile-first philosophy and responsive Web design. In those cases, we have found that, regardless of the ultimate decisions of how to proceed, it is helpful to adopt the mobile-first philosophy from the beginning of development. Before making choices about navigation, layout, design and development, we recommend that you consider the variety of devices in use by the audience and optimize the experience for as many users as possible. Mobile-first and responsive Web design are far from trendy ideas imposed on Internet development. The more you understand them, the more you will realize that these approaches tap into the Web’s inherent flexibilities and flow—with unique potential to make communications more dynamic.

BAE Systems’ Recovery Vehicles to Receive Upgrades HERCULES is the improved recovery system of choice for today’s 70-ton combat vehicles. BAE Systems received a $28.7 million contract to upgrade 11 M88A1 Medium Recovery vehicles to the M88A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lift Evacuation System (HERCULES) configuration. “The M88A2 is able to hoist and tow twice the weight than that of an M88A1, including an M1 Abrams tank, and is an essential component in helping our Armed Forces to fulfill successful recovery missions,” said Mark Signorelli, vice president and general manager or Armored Combat Systems at BAE Systems. “This contract demonstrates the continued need to invest in the HERCULES and shows the Army’s commitment to the irreplaceable role it serves.” The M88A2 HERCULES offers operational and logistics commonality with the existing M88A1 fleet, which provides simplified training and parts availability benefits to the end-user. Key upgrades for the HERCULES include: improved power-assisted braking, steering, winching, hoisting, and increased horsepower. HERCULES has the lowest acquisition, operational and maintenance cost of any 70-ton capable recovery system, answering the need for costeffective, self-supporting heavy recovery performance. The M88A2 provides unparalleled capability for recovering today’s 70-ton combat vehicles including the M1A1, M1A2, Leopard MBT, bridging systems, and other medium weight vehicles. The upgrade work will be performed by the existing workforce at BAE Systems operations in York, Pennsylvania and Aiken, South Carolina. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command with deliveries to conclude in March 2014. The award brings the total value of U.S. Government contracts that BAE Systems has been awarded on the HERCULES program to $2.1 billion. To date, 575 HERCULES vehicles have been fielded against an overall U.S. Army requirement of 632 vehicles, and a total of 84 vehicles have been fielded to the U.S. Marine Corps.



Upgraded MH-60S Operational Flight Trainer for United States Navy Re-Enters Service at NAS North Island CAE completes technology refresh and update on Navy's first MH-60S OFT Tampa, Fla., USA, April 24, 2013 - (NYSE: CAE; TSX: CAE) - CAE USA today announced that the United States Navy has declared an updated MH-60S "Sierra" operational flight trainer (OFT) as ready-fortraining at Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island near San Diego, California. This MH-60S OFT, originally manufactured by Lockheed Martin, was completely upgraded by CAE to add new technologies and ensure concurrency with other MH-60S training devices as well as the operational MH-60S helicopters. "We were able to complete this major technology refresh on the original MH-60S operational flight trainer on-schedule while working closely with the Navy to ensure minimal training downtime," said John Lenyo, President and General Manager, CAE USA. "CAE is very proud of the partnership we have established with the Navy on both the MH-60S and MH-60R training programs, and will continue to leverage our experience and world-class simulation technologies to help the Navy lower risk, reduce costs and most importantly, prepare helicopter aircrews for mission success." The technology refresh and updates to the fixed-based MH-60S OFT included the addition of motion seats, upgraded image generator visual system, and a new Barco CD2260 visual display system. CAE also performed significant engineering updates to re-architect the hardware and software computing designs to bring this MH-60S OFT to a common architecture with the Navy's suite of CAE-built MH-60S training devices. CAE is currently the prime contractor responsible for the design and manufacture of MH-60S OFTs and weapons tactics trainers (WTTs), as well as MH-60R tactical operational flight trainers (TOFTs), for the U.S. Navy. CAE began work on the MH-60S training program in June 2004.


DynCorp International

DynCorp International Hires More Than 7,300 Veterans as Part of White House Joining Forces Initiative April 30, 2013 at 4:44 pm DynCorp International has hired more than 7,300 veterans as part of the White House Joining Forces initiative. Joining Forces was launched in 2011 by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to help connect U.S. servicemen and women, veterans and military spouses with the resources they need to find jobs at home. “More than 60 percent of the personnel who we have working on our programs around the world are veterans,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO of DynCorp International. “They bring a unique understanding of and appreciation for our customers’ missions, and we are proud to call so many of them our colleagues.” In 2012, DI hired more than 4,080 veterans, exceeding the company’s Joining Forces goal of 4,000 veteran hires for the year. On April 30, 2013, Mr. Gaffney, along with DI veteran employee Clint Barkley, joined other Joining Forces partners at the White House for an event to recognize the achievements of the initiative. DynCorp International’s commitment to veterans is not new. In the past month alone the company has received the 2013 Champions of Veteran Enterprise Award from the National Veteran Small Business Coalition; has been named to Military Times EDGE magazine’s 2013 list of “Best for Vets” employers; and has been named one of the top five best defense companies for veteran-owned businesses by the National Veteran-Owned Business Association. For more information about the company’s longstanding commitment to veterans, please see the company’s website. Joining Forces DI, along with many other organizations in the U.S., pledged to hire and train a certain number of veterans as part of the White House’s Joining Forces initiative. Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative to mobilize all sectors of society to give U.S. service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.

Advanced Cockpit Ground Control Station Flies Predator C Avenger Next-Generation GCS Successfully Integrates Flagship and Advanced Predator Platforms SAN DIEGO – 24 April 2013 – General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI), a leading manufacturer of Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), tactical reconnaissance radars, and electro-optic surveillance systems, today announced that it has successfully demonstrated its Advanced Cockpit Ground Control Station’s (GCS’) capability to fly Predator C Avenger®. The flight occurred November 15, 2012 at the company’s Gray Butte Flight Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif. “This flight paired our most advanced GCS with our most advanced aircraft”, said Frank W. Pace, president, Aircraft Systems Group, GA-ASI. “Since 1994, our GCS have amassed over two million flight hours. The Advanced Cockpit is the next logical step in GCS progression. Our objective with this GCS is to fully satisfy customer interoperability requirements, enabling any GA-ASI RPA to be flown from the system.” The goal of this Congressionally-directed, U.S. Air Force (USAF)-supported demonstration was to show that the Advanced Cockpit’s open systems software architecture adapts rapidly for other RPA operations. More than two years ago, the system successfully flew the MQ-1 Predator over a three-month period. In April 2012, the Advanced Cockpit flew the SARC-1 UAS under a jointly funded company effort with Strategic Simulation Solutions. This effort demonstrated the system’s ability to control third party RPA. This summer, the Advanced Cockpit is scheduled to fly Predator B/MQ-9 Reaper. “Advanced Cockpit’s wrap-around visual display and multi-dimensional moving map dramatically increases situational awareness, while the integrated digital checklist decreases pilot workload,” said Jason McDermott, the test pilot who successfully handed off control of Avenger from GA-ASI’s legacy GCS to the Advanced Cockpit and controlled the flight during a 3hour mission. “The combination of these unique features greatly increases the ease and simplicity of mission planning, reduces pilot workload, thereby increasing flight safety.”

USNS Millinocket (JHSV 3) Christened Austal holds construction contracts for all 10 vessels in program April 20, 2013 Austal christened USNS Millinocket (JHSV 3) this morning (20 April) at its state-of-the-art shipyard in Mobile, Alabama. USNS Millinocket is the third of ten Joint High Speed Vessels (JHSV) Austal has under contract with the U.S. Navy as part of an overall 10-ship contract worth over $1.6 billion. The 338-foot (103 metre) catamaran vessel was named Millinocket by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus on May 30, 2012, after the Maine towns of East Millinocket and Millinocket. According to Secretary Mabus, “Millinocket displays American values of community and ingenuity at their best. I chose to name the joint high speed vessel after East Millinocket and Millinocket to honor those values and the men and women of the community that represents them no less today than it did in the early 1900s.” The ship’s sponsor, the Honorable Karen Gordon Mills, was sworn in as Administrator of the Small Business Administration in April 2009. A Maine resident, Ms. Mills has served in the President’s Cabinet since January 2012, where she is a key member of the President’s economic leadership team reflecting the important role that small businesses and entrepreneurs play in our nation’s long-term economic growth and prosperity. Under her leadership, SBA had a record year in 2011, supporting more than $30 billion in lending to more than 60,000 small businesses across the United States. Over the last three years, Administrator Mills has streamlined and simplified SBA’s core loan programs, reduced paperwork, shortened turnaround times and increased transparency across the agency. “Administrator Mills was a particularly appropriate sponsor for this Navy ship,” said Austal USA President Craig Perciavalle, “it is a wonderful way to honor the more than 200 small businesses nationwide that support the JHSV program.”

2012 Facility Energy Excellence Awards Air Force Materiel Command Energy Team 4/4/2013 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, Air Force Materiel Command commander, announced during the Energy Management Steering Group on March 26 that Robins Air Force Base, Ga., captured first place in the command's 2012 Facility Energy Excellence Award. Hill Air Force Base, Utah, won second place and Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., received third place. The Facility Energy Excellence Award provides an objective assessment of the installations' energy programs and recognizes efforts in promoting energy reduction, changing the energy culture and recognizing the performance of the installation facility energy managers. Culture change was weighted at 80 percent, recognizing that the key to energy conservation resides in each individual's actions and in active leadership at all levels across the enterprise. Energy reduction was weighted at 15 percent and water reduction was weighted at 5 percent. These categories capture actual, tangible gains made in energy conservation. The award acknowledged outstanding accomplishments from January through December 2012. The cultural change component included energy program leadership, action plans, energy investments and energy awareness. Culture change continues to be one of three pillars of the Air Force vision to "make energy a consideration in all we do." The other pillars are reduce demand and increase supply. "Each of these installations built a robust energy management program focused on energy reduction and energy culture," said Col. Jeff Todd, AFMC Communications, Installations and Mission Support deputy director. "Their efforts display great achievements in energy reduction and promotion of cultural change at the installation level and subsequently, the MAJCOM."

Cyber Airman-Development Strategically Critical To the Nation by Senior Master Sgt. Dean J. Miller Air Force Space Command Public Affairs 4/9/2013 - COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Cyber Airman development became the focus of discussion at Cyber 1.3 in Colorado Springs Monday as Chief Master Sgt. Linus Jordan, Command Chief, Air Force Space Command, addressed space and cyber industry leaders at the conference prior to official opening of the 29th National Space Symposium. Chief Jordan and a civilian aerospace leader were participants in a moderated panel discussion that encouraged audience participation via e-mail. The interactive forum quickly moved through topics including youth interest in an evolving cyber culture, common talent pool recruitment considerations, challenges of long-term development of a professional cyber force, and the critical roles of cyber-trained Airmen. Chief Jordan, invested in developing cyber Airmen both as command chief for the Air Force major command responsible for the cyber mission and as a father of an Airman in the cyber operations career field, challenged common assumptions that people fall into only the popular categories of digital native or digital immigrant. Chief Jordan offered a third category: the digitally disadvantaged. "There are demographics in our country where young people, or people of any age, may not have had the opportunity - educationally or economically - to be exposed to have the opportunity to use and leverage technology," said Chief Jordan. "Just because someone was born into an era, doesn't mean they experienced what that era was all about."



Stratcom Shares Space Data to Promote Safety, Transparency By Donna Miles American Forces Press Service OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb., April 15, 2013 – Committed to promoting safety and transparency in the space domain, U.S. Strategic Command maintains a registry of tens of thousands of man-made objects in space and shares the information freely with anyone who seeks it through a command-run website. Air Force Space Command, recognizing that collisions could damage orbiting satellites and cause more space junk, started the database as a pilot program before turning the project over to Stratcom in 2010, Air Force Col. Lina Cashin, Stratcom’s division chief for space, cyber and deterrence policy and security cooperation, said during an interview here with American Forces Press Service. The project, which involves regular tracking of old rocket bodies, debris and about 1,000 active satellites, has become one of Stratcom’s most universally popular products, Cashin said. has 85,000 account holders in 185 countries, she noted. In addition to providing basic satellite catalog data to all account holders, Stratcom provides more advanced data services on request. The command also has agreements in place with 35 commercial companies to expedite information-sharing, and hopes to enter similar agreements with space-faring nations to better support their space operations, Cashin said. Space situational awareness is crucial to Stratcom’s efforts to understand what is going on in space and to cope with the increasing amount of space debris, she explained. Both the National Space Policy and the National Security Space Strategy call on the United States to be a leader in sharing satellite positional information to the greatest extent possible, Cashin said.

Annual Night Vision Systems Summit July 29-31 – Arlington, Virginia The demands of the 21st century battlefield present some of the most challenging threat environments known to man. Protecting and equipping the warfighter has never been more complex as they combat terrorist threats, weapons of mass destruction, and rogue nations in harsh, multifaceted conditions for longer periods of time. It is the advancements in both sensor and imaging technology that enable the warfighter to see, acquire, and target hostile forces, day or night, in these next generation threat environments. This event will focus on the latest technological advancements in military night vision systems and sensors to maintain a competitive edge on the battlefield. It will look at investments in new solutions meant to enhance warfighter ability to “own the night.” In addition, discover how the night vision world is adapting in the current fiscal environment, what the future outlook is, and how industry is evolving to meet commercial needs. IDGA’s 8th Annual Night Vision Systems will bring together all relevant stakeholders to discuss the most pressing issues facing the night vision community. Analyze future trends, identify immediate and long-term needs, and uncover up-and-coming technologies for use in changing environments. Policy makers, uniformed service leaders, law enforcement and industry partners will gather in Washington to network, share best practices and explore potential paths to illuminate the future of night vision.

Live Fire Test and Evaluation Conference July 8-9 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Laurel, Maryland Recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have highlighted the need for our combat systems to be survivable and effective. Many of our systems employed in combat have undergone statutorily-mandated Live Fire Test and Evaluation (LFT&E), and have benefited from the advanced understanding of how our weapons perform and how our systems will respond when hit. This conference will address the impact of global threats, including strategic, tactical (including ballistic, directed energy and other non-ballistic threats) and unconventional threats (IEDs, others) on the safety and survivability of our armed forces. It will explore new survivability techniques and approaches to integrate survivability concerns within the broad considerations of system design and employment. The conference will also address issues related to lethality of our weapons systems, from small caliber munitions to missile defense. Lethality will be discussed within the operational context of increased precision of delivery and the desire to limit collateral damage. Other topics, which also play a vital role in this process, will include modeling and simulation, experimental design, test ranges, instrumentation and environmental issues related to this type of testing. LFT&E policies, procedures and best practices will also be addressed. This year marks the 26th anniversary of the statutory requirement for LFT&E of acquisition programs under Title 10, United States Code (Section 2366). The statute, which became effective in FY1987, requires realistic survivability testing and realistic lethality testing for applicable systems. Since FY1995, OSD oversight of LFT&E has been provided through the Office of the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation,which provides for an integrated assessment of operational effectiveness (including lethality), suitability and survivability.

AmericAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s VeterAns & the AmericAn Workforce: A resource guide to recruiting, engaging and onboarding our returning heroes

Abstract This white paper presents a comprehensive overview of the veterans’ employment and recruiting landscape for both human capital professionals and corporate and government leaders interested in the topic. This wide-ranging discussion touches on the disappointing unemployment rate for veterans of the Iraq-Afghanistan era and suggests a number of reasons why—based on their military training and experience transitioning service members make superb employees in all industries. The authors also provide extensive handy reference guides to best practices in veterans’ employment among all American industries. HR leaders will find helpful advice here on establishing their own programs, as well as an extensive bibliography of commentaries and research summaries on this important topic. By providing a top-level overview of this complex landscape and pointing our readers to what we believe are the most helpful resources in the veterans’ recruiting arena, we have attempted to create a useful, everyday tool for companies and organizations nationwide. For government agencies not yet accomplished at recruiting and integrating veterans in large numbers, we intend this article as a helpful guide to getting practical and productive programs on the rails.

What you will learn… • Why most of our returning military men and women are particularly qualified for jobs in both the private and public sectors.

• Why other companies, primarily small businesses, sometimes seem to fall short in recruiting veterans, or even shy away from making serious efforts to do so.

• How government, despite budget concerns and the possibility of sequestration, is doing its part to lead the way in recruiting and onboarding transitioning service members.

• How government agencies and companies can start— or recharge—their own veterans’ recruiting programs.

• How a number of corporate leaders have mounted nationally successful programs to attract and hire our returning heroes, and to integrate them into their workforces.

• How to locate best practice models in government and private industry for ideas and inspiration for veterans’ employment programs. • Where to go online to discover more about this critical human capital area.

America’s Veterans & the American Workforce: A resource guide to recruiting, engaging and onboarding our returning heroes

The Challenge of Current Economic Realities Despite the fading recession—and in many ways because of it—companies, not-for-profit institutions, and even government agencies in the U.S. today are facing a steep human resource challenge. As the downturn eases, all of these organizations will need to devise human capital and recruiting strategies attuned to a post-recession environment. In the private sector, companies of all sizes will be ramping up hiring programs to keep pace with business demands as the economy picks up steam through 2013. The result: many will be replenishing workforces that have maintained remarkably high productivity in tough times.1 In many ways government agencies face the same realities, but with an additional constraint: for the most part, federal hiring budgets are shrinking, and many agencies will be hard pressed even to replace departing workers, who are retiring in greater numbers than ever before.2 Veterans: Ensuring a Competitive American Workforce At the same time, our nation’s overseas military commitments have created a resource pool of experienced veterans now out of the service and looking for jobs. Although it may not be immediately clear to recruiters and hiring managers, most of these men and women bring the advantages of training and experience in the very skills that an expanding labor market and recovering economy requires. And isn’t there a moral imperative here too? These veterans have served our nation steadfastly, many of them in life-threatening environments. Do we owe them a debt for this service alone? Many would argue “yes.” But beyond that fact, human resource professionals should keep in mind the soft skills our veterans have developed through years of service and experience: adaptability,

leadership, mission-first orientation, desire to succeed. These are intrinsic skills that have been refined by the years of challenges that they have faced and overcome to succeed in the military. In and above the notion of corporate social responsibility, the business case for hiring, training and developing veteran talent is entwined with the larger issue of competitiveness for the American workforce in the commercial sector. In addition, veterans provide a pipeline of talent to address potential critical skills gaps in the government workforce. Introducing Veterans into Your Workforce Most Americans would agree that we should repay our collective debt to veterans, at least in part, by providing productive employment opportunities. This is a challenging objective to say the least. A study from the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University starkly underscores the need: Since 2001, more than 2.8 million military personnel have made the transition from military to civilian life. Another one million service members will make this transition over the next five years. For a great majority of the men and women who have or will make this transition, their most pressing concern is employment.3

As transitioning military members make their return to the workforce, the employment picture they face is less than encouraging, despite their skills, experience, and personal traits of discipline and loyalty that military service cultivates. The problem is especially evident among veterans of the Iran-Afghanistan era, where unemployment is running ahead of the national average. 4

America’s Veterans & the American Workforce: A resource guide to recruiting, engaging and onboarding our returning heroes

But there is good news. Larger corporations, including Microsoft, Wal-Mart and Lockheed Martin to name just three among the scores of industry leaders active on this front, are mounting aggressive programs to attract, recruit, and integrate returning veterans into their workforces. Appendix II on page 12 provides a selective nationwide roster of these programs.

seem at first glance to be “in the market” for the talents and experience that the average vet can bring to its workforce, exactly the opposite is true. Military training and experience are particularly valuable in developing a talented pipeline in the areas of public healthcare, acquisition workforce and cyber-security, in addition to numerous other areas of expertise.

Even so, for all the activity among the big players, many smaller companies seem to be operating on a catchas-catch-can basis when it comes to hiring vets today. Increased awareness of the potential of our nation’s veteran workforce among companies that have been less active is crucial to solving some of our nation’s talent and economic challenges.

A Stark Reality for the U.S. Economy: Unemployment Among Post 9/11 Vets It’s bad enough that general employment in the U.S. is hovering around 8 percent, but the rate of joblessness among post-9/11 veterans, which includes both men and women in their 20s and 30s today, is edging closer to 11 percent (10.9 percent in August 2012).6 This population effectively represents an underutilized economic resource, a trained and willing pool of workers who could boost productivity and performance for their employers almost immediately, and certainly at least as quickly as recruits from the general population.

For government, a different challenge The situation is more complicated for state and federal agencies. Agency leaders and HR departments are universally on board with the goal of recruiting veterans, with many forward-thinking agencies supplementing government-wide veterans’ preferences with aggressive programs for bringing in qualified talent from military sources. All this is in keeping with the Obama administration’s oft-stated commitment to veterans’ employment in all agencies. The results are encouraging: today more than 28 percent of new federal hires each year are military veterans, the highest level in more than 20 years.5 Still, because of budget realities, new federal jobs are simply not there in volume. Government HR strategists have a new challenge: getting the most out of their programs for transitioning military personnel and updating their approaches to making veterans feel at home in the agency cultures they join. Although not all agencies— by reason of their stated, top-level missions—would

Why Companies Don’t Hire Veterans Why is the hiring of veterans by the private sector lagging today? In their June 2012 report, “Employing America’s Veterans: Perspectives from Business (Center for American Security)”, Margaret C. Harrell and Nancy Berglass summarize succinctly the forces in play here. Harrell and Berglass point to employer misunderstandings and misconceptions about the fitness of veterans as civilian workers as primary factors. One prevalent element—a persistent stereotype—is likely the one most difficult to dispel. Some employers report concerns about the effects of combat stress, including post-traumatic stress issues, anger management and tendencies toward violence… other companies speak negatively about veterans “rigidity”. 7

Negative Stereotype

Skill Mismatch

Related to this factor is the notion, in some cases true, that veterans newly released from service may not be ready for full immersion in the civilian workforce. They need time to make the transition into life back home. The result: some employers take a pass on a highly qualified worker because they judge that he or she needs time to acclimate to “normal” life, or because they presume that their companies will have to shoulder the burden, at some expense, of aiding this transition. Veterans who come into the workforce with Reserve commitments sometimes encounter a similar prejudice: the suspicion that future deployments will likely result in long periods away from the job. For some potential employers, this notion may be sufficient justification for holding off on a job offer, despite the potential employer’s better instincts about a given vet’s qualifications.



Difficulty Finding Veterans

The nomenclature gap At the same time, some potential employers fail to see the on-the-job relevance of the skills and training that the average veteran can bring to their workforces. Especially without a personal connection to military service or culture, training and talent are unknowns for hiring managers. How do the qualifications, some ask, that they see on a transitioning vet’s resume translate to their realworld needs? Cori Keuler, who coordinates veteran’s recruiting for growing health care provider DaVita, with a worldwide workforce of 40,000, summarizes this challenge succinctly: It’s intimidating for some companies to reach out to veterans. We often don’t know the terminology on their resumes or how to present veteran candidates to hiring managers. How can we better translate the experience that vet candidates have, so that our hiring managers and our executives understand? For many smaller companies that don’t have the budget or recruiting staff, this can be more than a little challenging.8

It’s not difficult to understand the basis for this disparity between military and corporate jargon, where the very same skills are often filtered through descriptive industryspecific, or Department of Defense (DoD)-specific, practices that blur the clear parallels between them. Happily, this is one challenge that is being addressed from many angles, with both the DoD and a multitude of civilian organizations, among them Monster, Inc., hard at work to minimize the confusion caused by this nomenclature gap. One prominent example is the Transition Assistance Program (TAP), provided through a partnership among the DoD, Department of Labor (DoL), Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The program provides a slate of services for transitioning military personnel that includes pre-separation counseling; VA benefits briefings, employment workshops and oneon-one coaching. Effective November 2012, this latter feature will also include individualized assessments aimed at translating military skills categories to more common civilian nomenclature, an improvement aimed right at the level of the individual resume. The goal here is to eliminate much of the confusion about the relevance of military experience to given civilian opportunities. Also in November 2012, participation in TAP, up to now entirely voluntary, will become mandatory for all transitioning military personnel. What’s more, a joint DoD-VA task force is currently evaluating TAP with an eye on further improvements. [For a superb summary of legislative activity and government programs to support veterans’ transitions, see the Harrell and Berglass report.9]

What Makes the Typical Veteran a Good Employee? A thoughtful consideration of the extensive training and experience that a typical military man or woman accrues while in service makes the case about the general qualifications of a veteran for a diverse range of positions in our economy. George J. Pedersen, Chairman and CEO of ManTech International Corporation, a government services firm based in Fairfax, VA, sums up well the case for employing today’s veteran in a 21st century American corporation: The technology that [military personnel] operate and utilize in their mission requires a level of knowledge and training beyond earlier times. Service members also have qualities that we need in the workplace, and these are very important – qualities like responsibility, dedication to mission, perseverance, integrity, teamwork, and of course, leadership. We can teach skills on the job or in a classroom, but character is harder to come by.10

Adds Joe Wallis, who leads Microsoft’s outreach program for transitioning military: “Many people believe that military folks are good at following orders, but I think they show extraordinary initiative as well…a big part of it is flexibility, and they form teams very well.”11 The study from the Center for a New American Security points to a particularly striking characteristic that often distinguishes a particular veteran from other typical entrylevel job candidates: Ninety-five percent of the kids coming out of college have never managed before. They may be very smart, but they have no leadership experience. To find someone that is very smart and also has real leadership experience is huge for our business.12

Many of the research studies and compilations that we cite in our bibliography catalog the “softer” skills that corporations across the nation say that veterans bring to civilian employment.13 Among these traits are: • Leadership and teamwork • Appreciation for structure and discipline • Strong organizational commitments • Resiliency in a fluid work environment • Expertise in relevant skills (e.g., technology and logistics) • Initiative and entrepreneurial spirit • Diversity in background and facility in diverse workplace environments

A successful program supporting veterans can boost your organization’s prestige and visibility In our post 9/11 world, at least in the abstract, veterans enjoy widespread admiration and gratitude from all segments of the American population. Companies that publicly declare themselves veteran-friendly, by words or actions, stand to gain appreciably in the eyes of the public. Practical real-world results for returning veterans put companies in a position to gain widespread admiration. And make no mistake: these benefits in prestige and visibility are taken very seriously in the C-suite. So human capital leaders and HR executives as several of our Best Practices exemplars in this white paper strikingly illustrate should not hesitate to start or push for expansion of existing vets programs. It’s a reality in most organizations that few substantial HR programs flourish without the active and regular support of senior leadership. And the argument in favor of veterans hiring

is hard to deny: your company can do its part to pay our debt to veterans for their service, can build a pool of highly trained and mature job candidates, and, if it handles this dimension modestly and factually, can earn admiration and awareness among customers and potential customers alike. Even government agencies that champion the employment of veterans can share in this “halo” effect in the eyes of their main constituencies and particularly with the government entities responsible for their continued funding and mission support. Getting Started On Your Own Veteran Hiring Initiative Many government agencies can look to existing programs like the ones featured in Appendix III to find useful models to attract the most qualified job candidates from among America’s veterans and just as importantly to integrate them productively into their workforces. But there are some top-line items you should consider. What can your company do to advance its own vets recruiting? A step-by-step checklist: 1. Build a business case. Get up-to-speed on the business case for veterans’ recruiting and today’s best practices among companies and government agencies. (Start with the resources we provide here.) 2. Learn the laws that can help. Review the legal background, the statutes in force and the tax benefits the government has earmarked for companies that recruit veterans. (Best starting point from our Bibliography: Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Syracuse University. Guide to Leading Policies, Practices & Resources…, pp. 24-28) 3. Enlist a senior executive champion. 4. Educate. Educate your recruiters and hiring managers (and ultimately your workforce as a whole) about the advantages of integrating veterans in your culture.

5. Find your audience. Seek out job fairs and online resources where your organization can engage vets. 6. Integrate. Refine your on boarding practices to assist vets in the acclimation process; develop support groups for veterans. 7. Build affinity. Encourage veterans already in your workforce to self-identify and serve as resources to incoming vets. 8. Follow up. Track veterans’ progress and performance in your organization; implement a yearly survey. Planning your approach Companies and government agencies have a distinct challenge in front of them: refine institutional approaches to finding and attracting veterans, and integrate transitioning military members efficiently into workforces throughout the nation. The authors of this white paper can provide you with helpful, experienced-based advice about building the foundation for military relationships for your own programs and are ready to advise you on specifics such as how best to: • Gear effective messages to the different audience segments. – Educate and inform – Understand the profile of those in the military as they approach separation of service or those who have already finished their obligation – Identify which attributes are important to the target audience and the organization – Identify those distinct selling points and connections that will enable the crafting of a compelling and believable message

• Provide an audience specific destination – Provide access to mentors and share experiences – Demonstrate Career Path – Provide tools to ease transition – Show understanding of military challenges (families, support) – User friendly, time is at a premium – Take advantage of Social Platforms and linkage – Relationship Marketing (different levels and delivery mechanisms)

Veterans’ recruiting can be a top-of-mind mission for you and your organization After reading this white paper, you should feel well equipped to tackle the practical challenges of attracting and integrating experienced military men and women into your workforce where their training and skills can advance your mission and/or business objectives just as well as—if not better than—those of most candidates without a military background. Here (and in the Appendices that follow) are the essential tools for setting out on this task under your own power and, we hope, with the full support of your organization. Bottom line: it’s a case of doing the right thing, just as our deserving heroes did when they chose to commit a large segment of their lives to serving in the nation’s armed forces.

• Create veteran-friendly workplace, processes and communications. – Be an ally, understand the dimensions of transition – Provide internal training and tools – Assess internal assets and understand / examine process vital to successful program • Take a strategic approach to the Veteran Life Cycle: right tool, right time.
