The Offshore Installation Manager (OIM) is the most senior manager of an offshore platform operating on the UKCS.
Many offshore operators have adopted this UK offshore management model and title and applied it to their operations in all global regions irrespective of the local regulations in force.
In the UK the individual must be officially registered as an OIM with the Offshore Safety Division of the Health and Safety Executive and the OIM is responsible for the health, welfare and safety of the personnel on board the installation, whether a drilling rig, production platform or a support vessel (e.g. a flotel).
The OIM position had arisen in part from the Inquiry into the 1965 Sea Gem disaster, in which the Sea Gem drilling rig collapsed and sank in the southern sector of the North Sea with a loss of 13 lives. The Inquiry recommended that ” … there ought to be a ‘master’ or unquestioned authority on these rigs” and that ” … there ought to be the equivalent of a shipmaster’s daily round when the ‘master’ could question those responsible for different aspects of the day-to-day management of the whole.” The recommendations from the Sea Gem Inquiry were formalised in the Mineral Workings (Offshore Installations) Act 1971 which requires a registered OIM to be in charge of each installation.
Training and selection of OIMs has been the subject of research projects and specialist training.

The first NASA astronauts to set foot on Mars will aim to establish a research-and-operations base, not a permanently inhabited colony, agency officials say.
According to NASA’s current plans,the Mars outpost which NASA hopes to set up by the end of the 2030s will serve as a hub that accommodates astronauts on a temporary basis, said Ben Bussey, the chief exploration scientist in NASA’s Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate.
A colony is “a long way down the road. No one’s thinking of, on the NASA side, like a permanent human base,” Bussey said Wednesday (March 16) during a presentation with the space agency’s Future In-Space Operations (FISO) working group. [Red Planet orBust: 5 Crewed MarsMission Ideas]
“The idea here is that you would have your exploration zone that you set up for the first crew,” Bussey added. “And that crew would leave, and then you send another crew at the next good launch opportunity. So it isn’t permanently occupied, but it is visited multiple times.” A permanently occupied Mars settlement may eventually grow out of NASA’s crewed activities. But for several other organizations, a Red Planet colonyis the explicit goal.
One of these groups is SpaceX, the American spaceflight company founded in 2002 by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk. Musk has stressed many times over the years that he established SpaceX primarily to help make humanity a multiplanet species.
Musk envisions thousands of people living on the Red Planet in the not-too-distant future. The key to making this happen, he has said, is to develop fully and rapidly reusable rockets, which could slash the cost of spaceflight by a factor of 100 or more.
So SpaceX has been conducting a series of increasingly ambitious reusable-rocket tests over the past few years. For example, the company has repeatedly attempted to land the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket back on Earth during launches.
Most of these tries have been near misses. On multiple occasions, the rocket stage successfully hit the deck of its target “autonomous spaceport drone ship” in the ocean but ended up toppling over and exploding. But a Falcon 9 stage did land softly on terra firma at Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station this past December the first time this had ever been done during an orbital launch. (Blue Origin, the spaceflight company established by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, has also pulled off rocket landings, but so far, only during suborbital launches.)
The Netherlands-based nonprofit Mars One is also shooting for a Red Planet colony. The group aims to land four pioneers on Mars in 2027 and then send more settlers every two years thereafter. (There are no plans at the moment to bring anyone back to Earth.) Mars One aims to pay for these activities by staging a global media event around the colonization process.

According to pediatric neurosurgeon and potential 2016 presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, one of the main impediments to U.S. military success against ISIS in the Middle East is the fear of prosecution when those conducting the operations return home. In Carsons view, we need to eliminate all rules in the fight against ISIS if we ever want to win.
Our military needs to know that theyre not going be prosecuted when they come back, because somebody has said, You did something that was politically incorrect, Carson told Bill Hemmer on Fox News Monday morning. There is no such thing as a politically correct war. We need to grow up, we need to mature. If youre gonna have rules for war, you should just have a rule that says no war. Other than that, we have to win. Our life depends on it.
While there may be no such thing as a politically correct war, there is such a thing as the Geneva Conventions to which the United States is a party. And there are such things as war crimes, for which military leaders can be prosecuted if they are committed.

SAN ANTONIO (MCT) The director of the National Security Agency said Thursday that San Antonio could expect as many as 1,000 additional personnel working on the Defense Department’s ongoing cybersecurity mission over the next three years.
San Antonio is very important to the future of cyber within the Department of Defense, Adm. Michael Rogers, who’s also commander of the U.S. Cyber Command, said during a Cybersecurity Summit hosted by the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. You are going to see a larger footprint coming to San Antonio.
The military has quietly grown its cybersecurity mission in San Antonio.
The 24th Air Force at Port San Antonio, which is responsible for safeguarding key components of the Defense Department’s information networks, now employs more than 1,300 people here.
Electronic warfare and other operations now are the charge of the 25th Air Force at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.
The NSA has stealthily transformed a former Sony chip fabrication plant on the Northwest Side into an intelligence hub with a 94,000-square-foot data center.
It’s not clear where the new employees will be working.
Rogers said the military was growing a dedicated cyber mission force of about 6,200 people, and that San Antonio would get a good segment.
We have made the decision that San Antonio both the Air Force side … (and) the investments we’ve made at NSA Texas these are foundational to the future and we’re going to keep working.
Rogers said the military recognized that staying ahead of global threats would involve partnerships with private-sector contractors, which San Antonio officials are hoping to grow.
