In the late 1990s, Colombia was considered by many to be a failed state due to endemic crime, pervasive violence, and nation-wide terrorism that resulted in the displacement of the rural population and, due to rampant ...
The Islamic Republic of Recklessness
You might not think high-risk aggression is in Iran’s national interest, but leaders in Tehran have long disagreed.
Energy recovery pulse forming network
(The United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, DC (US), 2019-06-04)
An energy recovery pulse forming network and method that recovers at least a portion of the energy in a railgun by tran sferring energy dissipated from the railgun inductance back to an initial source of the energy, ...
Sample average approximation for the continuous type principal-agent problem
(Elsevier B.V., 2019-06)
We develop a method for finding approximate solutions to the continuous agent type principal-agent problem when analytical methods are not available. The solution is calculated by solving a discrete agent type version ...
Dynamically tilting flat table to impart a time-varying gravity-induced acceleration on a floating spacecraft simulator
(The United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, DC (US), 2019-05-21)
Disclosed is a planar test bed comprising a planar surface and further comprising mechanical couplings in mechanical communication with the planar table and the supporting legs. The mechanical couplings are translatable ...

Using the Entropy Weighting Scheme in Military Decision Making
(Sage Journals, 2019-05-15)
This article compares the entropy weight scheme to other subjective weighting schemes using various multi-attribute decision making criteria. We apply the entropy weighting scheme to improve the CARVER center of gravity ...
Development of high performance hybrid capacitors
Electrochemical capacitors are viable energy storage solution but their low energy density restricts their widespread deployment in many electronic devices. The motivation behind hybrid capacitor is the desire to improve ...
