Interesting USN updates for planners

As we update our newsletter towards a more streamlined source for planners, our interim solution is to provide noteworthy planning resource links. 

The 23rd Commandant of the Coast Guard will present at the Navy Warfare Development Command's (NWDC) Speaker Series April 16, 2013, from 10 to 11 a.m. at NWDC's headquarters on Naval Station Norfolk and over Defense Connect Online (DCO).  Adm. Thad Allen, USCG (Ret), will present "Innovation in Homeland Defense."

The German Sachsen-class frigate Hamburg (F220) is the first German ship to fully integrate and deploy with an American carrier strike group, and April 3 marks her second week of operating in the North Arabian Sea with USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) (IKE).  The Hamburg will stay a part of the strike group until the group's completion of operations in the U.S. 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility.

The Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) has developed a suite of medical planning models that provide joint medical planners with end-to-end modeling of expeditionary medicine.  Model will be used to estimate medical requirements for treating illnesses and injuries, critical for medical resource planning.  The NHRC has also developed 3 other planning tools, to include:  Patient Condition occurrence Frequency tool, Casualty Rate Estimate Tool, and the Expeditionary Medicine Requirements Estimator.
