We welcome you to the Military Operations Research Society (MORS)! MORS is your professional society comprised of operations research practitioners, data analysts, systems engineers, mathematicians, behavioral scientists, and other disciplines dedicated to conducting analyses in support of national security. Our Society’s mission is to enhance the quality of analyses that inform national and homeland security decisions. To accomplish this, the national security analysis community leverages the expertise of our members. Our members who are experts in analytical techniques such as regression analysis, queuing theory, wargaming, network analysis, and modeling and simulation. These experts are experienced in applying their disciplines in multiple domains (e.g., air, cyber, land, sea, space, etc.) and diverse areas, such as irregular warfare, manpower & personnel, intelligence & cyber operations, and military logistics. Best of all, our members are willing to share their experiences and help others in our society learn. To employ analytical techniques and tools to accomplish the mission at hand. This makes MORS a collaborative and intellectually robust professional society. A society with the reputation and desire to help others succeed through the analysis of data and communications via information visualization.
As a Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsored organization, MORS is in a unique position among professional societies to offer classified and unclassified analysis to address our nation’s most pressing national security challenges. In addition, our MORS Industry and Organization Partners, as well as our National Research Partners, provide great support to the Society by conducting and sharing analyses that support national security decision-makers.
Our theme for 2019-2020 is “Multi-Discipline Analysis in National Security.” To support this theme, my goals as MORS President are to 1) increase knowledge sharing and the exchange of ideas among MORS members (Multi-Discipline); 2) increase opportunities for MORS to help the community address national security strategic needs (Multi-Domain); and 3) increase MORS membership among uniformed and civilian junior analysts (Multi Service/Organization).
These goals will help MORS achieve its mission.
I look forward to working with you towards our continued collaboration and growth to meet our goals and accomplish the MORS Mission.
