Camp Roberts RELIEF 09-04 After Action Report
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-09-24)
SUMMARY: STAR-TIDES gathered engineers and innovation leaders from industry, academia, and the non-profit sector, focusing on individuals with direct knowledge of open-source geospatial information system (GIS) applications, ...
Contractors in the 21st Century "Combat Zone"
(College Park, Maryland. University of Maryland, 2005-04)
Victory in the Cold War brought reduced military budgets and lower end-strengths. Contemporaneously, operations’ tempo rose dramatically. This, plus government policies favoring outsourcing, led to a growth in importance ...
The Naval Ordnance Station Louisville: a case study of privatization-in-place
(College Park, Maryland; University of Maryland, 2005-08)
On the afternoon of March 7, 1996, Mike Seale, then Director of Public/Private Partnering for United Defense, waited anxiously while the Louisville/Jefferson County Redevelopment Authority (LJCRA) in Kentucky deliberated ...
A biologically inspired micro-vehicle capable of aerial and terrestrial locomotion
The design, fabrication, and field testing of a 30.5cm robot capable of aerial and terrestrial locomotion is described. The Micro Air-Land Vehicle (MALV) flies using a chord-wise, undercambered, bat-like compliant fixed ...
Improving readiness with a public-private partnership: NAVAIR's Auxiliary Power Unit total logistics suport program
(College Park, Maryland. School of Public Policy, University of Maryland, 2005-07)
The morning of April 15th, 1998, found Debra Bautista struggling with a daunting assignment. As the Program Manager for the F/A-18 fighter Auxiliary Power Unit at the Naval Aviation Depot, Cherry Point (NADEP-CP), she ...
Computational provenance in hydrologic science: a snow mapping example
(Royal Society Publishing, 2008)
Computational provenance—a record of the antecedents and processing history of digital information—is key to properly documenting computer-based scientiﬁc research. To support investigations in hydrologic science, we ...
Snow properties in relation to runoff
In snowmelt dominated river basins, snow properties near peak accumulation are used to assess spring and summer runoff. Forecast models rely on estimates of the water stored in the snowpack to determine the contribution ...
Backlash in Bolivia: regional autonomy as a reaction against indigenous mobilization
(Sage Publications, 2007)
In the 1990s, Bolivia’s indigenous population mobilized to claim new political roles, and in the process, directly challenged the privileged position of economic elites within national political institutions. In response, ...
Retrieval of subpixel snow covered area, grain size, and albedo from MODIS
We describe and validate a model that retrieves fractional snow-covered area and the grain size and albedo of that snow from surface reflectance data (product MOD09GA) acquired by NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging ...
