Changes to Intended Place of Residence policy for retiring Canadian military personnel announced
Ottawa Citizen
The Canadian government has announced changes to the Intended Place of Residence (IPR) policy for retiring Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members, according to a DND news release. The move comes after concerns were raised about a number of generals, including Liberal Party advisor Lt.-Gen. Andrew Leslie, and how they used the IPR. "Our Government is committed to ensuring respect for the hard-earned dollars of Canadian tax-payers while also providing our retiring CAF members with a way home following their military service," said Defence Minister Rob Nicholson.

CBC News
Almost nine months after promising to make the hiring of mental health staff a priority for the Canadian Forces, 40 positions — nearly 10 per cent of the military's mental health workforce — remain vacant across the country, according to new figures released by National Defence.

Horizontal jet pack could make soldiers move faster on the battlefield
Canada.com
It's a jet pack, all right. Not the kind that makes you fly, but definitely the kind that makes you move faster. Researchers in Arizona have made a jet pack that straps to your hips to make you run faster. By pushing against your hips and core, it can currently shave up to three seconds off of a five-minute run. But that's just the prototype. After Jason Kerestes proved that it could work (by towing his supervisor behind a truck), he built his own little miniature jet pack to push people harder than they ever thought they could be pushed.

Beaver takes over cadet dining hall
e-Veritas
The beaver is a recurring symbol within the Canadian Forces, such as on the cap badges of the Royal 22nd Regiment and the Canadian Military Engineers. Luckily, Cartier squadron has the honour of having this animal as its mascot. Skylarks are a unique opportunity at RMC to demonstrate squadron pride and teamwork. With this in mind, we came up with the idea to build a beaver dam in the cadet dining hall with a beaver placed on top to make our squadron visible within the college.

How human factors engineering mitigates the 'Swiss cheese effect'
Eureka Magazine
On one level, the concept of human factors engineering would seem fairly self-explanatory. Products and systems are designed to be used by or for human beings and therefore it would seem obvious that building the physical needs and requirements of the user into a design should be a basic facet of the designer's brief. All too often, however, this is not the case.

Geospatial analysis tool built to support Army intelligence analysis
U.S. Army
Geospatial intelligence can help commanders to gain better insight about which route to send their troops — a more concealed longer route versus a shorter more direct route that leaves the troops exposed to enemy fire. The ability to obtain this information, analyze it and produce a report for commanders has been enhanced by the Situational Awareness Geospatially Enabled, referred to as SAGE, geospatial tool supporting the Distributed Common Ground System-Army, or DCGS-A.
