Parallel Debate on Electronic Warfare during LAAD

first_imgThe objective of the event, which took place on April 12 at Riocentro, was to showcase the capabilities of Latin American nations in this arena, in addition to introducing new technologies in that sector. Captain Leonardo da Silva Mello, director of the Brazilian Navy’s Electronic Warfare Center, cited developing projects within the force, such as the Amphibian Brigade program conceived in a 12-phase process to renew the Marine EW system. At the same time as the PNC4S workshop took off at SOUTHCOM, military and civilians from the defense and security sector assisted a seminar on electronic warfare (EW) during the 10th LAAD Security & Defence expo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “Until practically the end of the 90s, we didn’t have that sort of equipment,” he stated. “Electronic warfare emerged for us during a one-week period in Salvador, Bahia State, in 1986 by self-taught professionals.” The Brazilian Air Force (FAB, for its Portuguese acronym) had already introduced details from “Projeto FX-2,” for which they expect to acquire 36 aircraft to modernize and and upgrade the FAB’s fleet. Major General José Augusto Crepaldi Affonso, president of the Coordinating Commission for the Combat Aircraft Program, discussed the details surrounding that.

My View

first_img My View Ensuring care for each incapacitated person Sen. Burt L. Saunders Recent news articles on guardianship imply that Florida statutes governing guardianship are lacking and need revision. I wish to address this issue because I believe Florida is on the cutting edge of guardianship issues and is leading the nation in protecting our most vulnerable citizens.Guardianship is a complex and often misunderstood relationship. Often confused with the guardian ad litem program, guardianship is the process designed to protect and exercise the legal rights of individuals who lack the capacity to make their own decisions and have not made plans to address this possibility. Florida is a leader in protecting individuals who are declared incapacitated. The state needs to remain in the forefront of this effort by ensuring that our low-income citizens have access to public guardianship.Generally, there are three types of guardians in Florida. If a court determines a person needs a guardian and that person has a family member or friend who can serve, then the court may appoint that person. These people are considered nonprofessional guardians. If the incapacitated person does not have a loved one willing and able to serve, but does have assets, the court may appoint a professional guardian. If the incapacitated person has no family or friends and limited financial means, the court may appoint a public guardian. Each of these types of guardians must meet specific registration, education, and background checks as set forth in Florida statute.Many of the past legislative sessions have addressed public guardianship funding and other critical guardianship concerns. In 1999, the legislature, recognizing a need for administrative oversight of public and professional guardians, created the Statewide Public Guardianship Office (SPGO). SPGO may not be the most comprehensive name, since the office is responsible for far more than public guardianship. SPGO not only appoints local public guardianship offices but is also responsible for the registration and education of professional guardians.In 2003 I filed a bill which resulted in two significant milestones for Florida guardianship. Florida became the first state in the country to require professional guardians to pass a competency examination. Since this requirement went into effect in July 2005, approximately 300 professional guardians have taken the exam, with an overall passage rate of 81 percent. The bill also created a Guardianship Task Force within the Department of Elder Affairs to examine guardianship and incapacity and make recommendations to the governor and the legislature for the improvement of processes and procedures related to guardianship and incapacity.The Guardianship Task Force quickly realized that Florida needs to examine more issues than just the number of persons who may require guardianship, including: uniform professional guardian education, funding for public guardianship, education of the persons responsible for determining incapacity, safeguarding minors’ property, promoting advance directives, and much more. Public testimony provided the task force with real-life examples of the issues and gave the members insight into the differences among the counties and within judicial circuits. Recognizing the importance of the task force’s recommendations, I have filed Senate Bill 472 for the 2006 Session, incorporating all these ideas.Guardianship in Florida has grown tremendously in recent years. Florida has seen an increase in public and professional guardians alike, but we still have work ahead of us as we seek to ensure that each incapacitated person is cared for. One way we can all help is by taking the time to speak with our loved ones about our wishes for decisionmaking, should we lose that ability. Additionally, every person over 18 years of age should have an advance directive. Although we all hope we will never become incapacitated, a simple car accident, fall, or other misfortune can cause even the healthiest person to lose his or her ability to make informed decisions. Regardless of our age or current health, it is never too early to plan. Sen. Burt L. Saunders, R-Naples, a lawyer, chairs the Senate Health and Human Services Appropriations Committee, and is a candidate for Florida Attorney General .
