  • Samuel Musa
  • National Defense University

Innovation Opportunities
  • Many innovations have been produced as a result
    of the intersection/boundaries of
  • Interdisciplinary fields of study and Centers of
    Excellence have grown in academia to take
    advantage of these opportunities
  • Emergency Management and Homeland Security are
    two distinct fields that could benefit from an in
    depth study of their intersection

Innovation is at the Boundaries

Core Strategy Curriculum
  • Analyze 21st century geopolitical environment
    characterized by rise of non-state armed groups
    and uneven erosion of state sovereignty.
  • Evaluate roles of power and ideology, rise of
    newly empowered and politicized ideological
    movements, and bases for authority and
  • Understand relationship between political
    objectives, strategy, and all instruments of
    national power.
  • Develop skills to think critically and
    strategically, to differentiate between policy
    and analysis, and to apply knowledge to practice
    in collaborative and complex circumstances with
    diverse partners.

Homeland Security Policy Leadership Curriculum
  • Understand the foundations and doctrine of
    Homeland Security including threat definition and
    assessment, means for securing the Homeland,
    organization and coordination issues, and
    constraints on roles and missions. Areas covered
    include Homeland security strategies, plan
    development, working vocabulary, and methodology
    for project assessment
  • Think critically about strategic challenges in
    homeland security, identify solutions, and
    develop strategies for effective utilization of
    national resources and capabilities
  • Analyze critical infrastructure protection from
    historical perspectives processes, players and
    resources threat, gaps and opportunities
    overview the National Infrastructure Protection
    Plan (NIPP), including specific sector plans
  • Build organizational responses to vulnerability
    and hazards and towards resilience in the Target
    Capabilities List (TCL)
  • Apply principles and practices of Project
    Management to Homeland Security

ST Curriculum
  • Analyze key technologies and scientific research
    that will shape homeland security in the coming
  • Understand key parameters of a science and
    technology strategy including environment and
    operational requirements, infrastructure,
    critical skills resource strategy and
  • Understand the role of ST in the development of
    homeland security policy. Relevant issues include
    technology adaptation in complex organizations,
    gaps between operations and technology
    development, relations between technologists and
    policymakers, trade-offs in senior level decision
    making, and the limited role of technology in the
    need to bring to bear capabilities other than
    technology in order to win homeland security
  • Understand how we evaluate technology research,
    test evaluation, peer reviews, research and
    technical selection methodology, metrics, and
    implementation plans
  • Understand methods of analysis and argumentation
    for decision-makers focusing on modern complex
    security challenges such as terrorism. Analyze
    logic of arguments, approach of different natural
    sciences, social sciences, mathematics, law, and
