Program Specific Instructional Services

Peak Performance Training
DCS is providing education in quality and process improvement support to the Army Center for Enhanced Performance (ACEP). The ACEP Program provides a breadth of services to meet the needs of Soldiers, their Units, their Families and the military community around the world. In 2008 ACEP trainers traveled to 44 Army installations providing education and training services to returning wounded warriors empowering them to make the successful transition from rehabilitation back to duty as a soldier, or as a productive member of society. Highly trained ACEP 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 ACEP 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 ACEP 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.

Lean Six Sigma initiatives were instrumental in the development of all organizational processes in the start-up of the ACEP program. DCS trained staff utilized techniques from Lean Six Sigma to aid in the development of organizational objectives that contributed to enhancing the efficacy of organizational processes in the center.  The resulting increase in efficiency and a 450% boost in productivity paved the way for the expansion of the program from one center to ten a full year ahead of schedule. Lean Six Sigma tools such as value stream mapping, process interaction, data analysis and display, techniques in project management process, and many others played an integral role in ensuring the execution of strategies effectively enhancing the capability of ACEP to provide quality service to soldiers and their families.

Currently, ACEPs are being implemented at ten Army posts as a program for mastery of lifelong skills achieved only through routine use, self-regulation and continued practice. DCS currently provides support at the following Army posts: U.S. Military Academy, Ft. Bragg, Ft. Jackson, Ft. Lewis, Ft. Knox, Ft. Bliss, Ft. Gordon, Ft. Hood, Ft. Sam Houston, and Walter Reed Medical Center.

National Security Research and Instruction

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 and the Center for Contemporary Conflict (CCC) at Naval Postgraduate School, the Combating Terrorism Center at US Military Academy at West Point and the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) at US 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 USN 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 has provided 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 US 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.
