From the military services and around the DoD, here’s your SITREP for Thursday, August 10, 2017.

  • A team of Army scientists and engineers have challenged long-held views in the area of human-autonomy interaction to change the way science involves people, especially in developing advanced technical systems that involve artificial intelligence and autonomy.
  • The United Service Military Apprenticeship Program offers apprenticeships for most rated sailors. The program works with the Department of Labor to provide nationally recognized apprenticeship programs which result in journeyman-level certificates of completion for members of the sea services.
  • Two U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers, under the command of the U.S. Pacific Air Forces, joined their counterparts from South Korean and Japanese air forces in sequenced bilateral missions this week.
  • Marines work to perfect IED detection during a counter improvised explosive device training course in North Carolina.
