Dr. Brandt, Craig M., Dr. Ahles, Mark T., DISAM Journal


With the increased foreign policy emphasis on Central Asia following September 11, 2001, it was only a matter of time before the Defense Institute of Security Assistance Management (DISAM) was asked to play its small part in bolstering the security relations between the U.S. and the nations of that region.

Use of I-TMS would allow the Kazakh forces to better work with the ODC in management of their growing International Military Education and Training (IMET) program.

Initial DISAM team members Dr. Mark Ahles and Mr. Bob Hanseman arrived in Almaty on July 31st. They worked with the ODC in installing and training the I-TMS software in the Ministry of Defense's new Center for International Programs. …
