Resiliency and Peak Performance Training

DCS provides education in quality and process improvement support to the Army Resiliency Directorate Support (ARDS) Program.

DCS helped establish the first Army Center for Enhanced Performance (ACEP) site in 2006 at Fort Bragg, NC.  It was rebranded from ACEP to the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness-Performance and Resilience Enhancement Program (CSF-PREP) to better align its capabilities with the Army-wide Comprehensive Soldier Fitness (CSF) program and has played a significant role in the development, implementation, and delivery of the Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) program which is an integral part of the Army’s Ready and Resilient Campaign (R2C).  The ARD is the proponent for the R2C; the campaign seeks to inculcate a positive cultural change in the Army.  It provides capabilities to Commanders and leaders to enable them to achieve and sustain personal readiness, foster an environment of trust, and optimize human performance in environments of uncertainty and persistent danger.  Highly trained Master Resilience Trainer-Performance Enhancement (MRT-PE) teams travel to Army installations across the continental U.S. and overseas providing quality education on cutting edge performance techniques designed to give soldiers the edge they need to accomplish missions in combat, transition back to duty, or be successful in life.

Highly trained ARDS instructor teams routinely travel to Army installations across the continental U.S. and overseas providing quality education on cutting edge performance techniques designed to give soldiers the edge they need to accomplish missions in combat, transition back to duty, or be successful in life.

DCS supports ARDS with the delivery of its training through a unique and proven combination of instruction, skills training and practice with real life application. This individualized training program offers soldiers the ability to apply strategies in their work environments then return to the ARDS for periodic follow-up training. The instruction provides basic knowledge of peak performance mental skills. The soldier then applies this knowledge in military case scenarios while using advanced biofeedback technology. This technology provides immediate feedback of the soldier’s ability to perform the mental skills and allows further training to be customized.

DCS provides support to multiple geographically dispersed military installations / posts nationwide as well as Korea.

National Security Research and Instruction

Providing National Security research for the DoD

DCS provides National Security research, analysis and education services to the premier National Security research and educational centers for the DoD including

  • The National Security Affairs (NSA) Department
  • The Center for Contemporary Conflict (CCC) at Naval Postgraduate School
  • The Combating Terrorism Center at U.S. Military Academy at West Point
  • The Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) at U.S. Air Force Academy.

DCS provides support in the study of international relations, security policy and regional studies to the National Security Affairs (NSA) Department at NPS.  DCS has provided research, production and delivery of a project involving an international academic conference and editing a conference report of a study compiled for external NPS research sponsors on Stability, Security, Transition and Reconstruction Operations, highlighting the challenges and opportunities they create for the U.S. Navy.  The project explored the overall strategic setting for contemporary stability operations by describing the strategic and organizational challenges created by stability operations.  The role of the Navy in supporting stability operations also will be described from those ashore who are actually charged with mitigating disruption of civil society.

DCS provides support to the CCC, which is the research institute of the NPS’s Department of National Security Affairs. The CCC analyzes current and emerging threats to national security. DCS has provided support through briefings, conferences, publications and the CCC’s ship-board Regional Security Education Program.  DCS has provided the expertise of many individuals to deliver multiple briefings as part of the Regional Strategic Education Program. The program was designed to serve as part of the political, cultural and strategic education and awareness program for deploying U.S.N battle groups. DCS provided multiple graduate level briefings while deployed aboard the two RSEP groups. The briefings provided introductory and advanced overviews of political, diplomatic, economic and military developments in the Middle East and South Asia.

DCS provides research on projects such as Strategic Stability in South Asia and Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) issues for events and seminars for the FBI and U.S. government officials (assistant district attorneys, customs officers, etc).

DCS provides support to U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY including support to the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC). The CTC is an internationally recognized institution focused on understanding foreign and domestic terrorist threats to security.  The Center provides three distinct programs: Fellows Program, Research Program and Outreach Program.
