From Midway to Monterey: Leveraging Initiative and Technology
(Center for International Maritime Security, 2018-06-18)
Programming challenges and impediments to reform: identifying pragmatic solutions
(Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018-02-15)
Using two recently published essays by the current writer that assesses the dismal record of performance of Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System in enabling communist legacy defence institutions in Central and Eastern ...
Equivalence of the waveguide invariant and two path ray theory methods for range prediction based on Lloyd’s mirror patterns
(Acoustical Society of America through the American Institute of Physics, 2008-07)
Previous work discusses the use of normal mode theory as a means of determining the range of a contact from a Lloyd’s Mirror interference pattern. This method relies on the long range interference pattern between different ...
Apologia for Suicide: Martyrdom in Contemporary Jihadist Discourse
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
Fratricidal Jihadists: Why Islamist Keep Losing Their Civil Wars
(Middle East Policy Council, 2018)
Why do Islamists kill each other? In the last three decades, Islamist rebels enmeshed in civil wars have descended into internecine con icts that divided their ranks, alienated their sup- porters, and cost them their bid ...
SAR Focus Theory of Complicated Range Migration Signatures Due to Moving Targets
Recent studies have revealed that the residual range migration effects of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery smears induced by moving targets can exhibit complicated shapes that are not limited to that of parabolas. ...
Effects of Mean Speed on Broadside SAR Imagery Signatures for Accelerating Targets
This paper examines the effects of the mean target speed on the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery morphology of signatures induced by surface movers that are transitioning from a lower to higher speed during the ...
Signature predictions of surface targets undergoing braking maneuvers in squinted spotlight synthetic aperture radar imagery
This paper investigates methodologies for predicting the smear signatures in squinted spotlight synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery collections due to surface targets that are undergoing braking maneuvers. Previous ...
Signature predictions of surface targets undergoing turning maneuvers in spotlight synthetic aperture radar imagery
This paper investigates methodologies for predicting the smear signatures in broadside spotlight synthetic aperture radar imagery collections due to surface targets that are undergoing turning maneuvers. This analysis ...
The Aerodynamic Roughness of Different Types of Sea Ice
The aerodynamic roughness for all major types of sea ice is specified on the basis of surface layer measurements from ship and ice floe platforms. Median neutral surface drag coefficients, Cdn×1000, for grease and nilas ...
