Produced by the Foreign Area Studies of The American University for military and other personnel who need a convenient compilation of basic facts about the social, economic, political, and military institutions of various Middle Eastern countries in 1977, this volume remains a useful compendium of information on the area.
This updated 2004 Edition of the popular International Electronic Countermeasures Handbook contains new and revised entries for defense electronics systems from all nations, including Russian, Eastern European, and Chinese electronic-warfare, electronic-intelligence-gathering, and guided-weapon systems. Packed with more system technical data, photographs, and operational details than ever, the new edition is a must-have resource for military and industry professionals who are concerned with defense electronics in the modern world. The book also describes known threats, providing details of missiles which can be launched from static and mobile ground-based sites, from ships, or from aircraft. Moreover, it presents comprehensive information on the status, parameters, deployment, and manufacturer of each system. This invaluable handbook includes every important class of military surveillance and electronic intelligence system for ESM (electronic support measures); SIGINT (signals intelligence); COMINT (communications intelligence); and DF (direction finding) systems.
Containing a voluminous and detailed directory of useful information as well as informative and engaging essays on traveling in the '90s, this book is the quintessential traveler's companion and the ultimate resource for what you need to know to go anywhere.
The second edition of this handbook provides a state-of-the-art cover view on the various aspects in the rapidly developing field of robotics. Reaching for the human frontier, robotics is vigorously engaged in the growing challenges of new emerging domains. Interacting, exploring, and working with humans, the new generation of robots will increasingly touch people and their lives. The credible prospect of practical robots among humans is the result of the scientific endeavour of a half a century of robotic developments that established robotics as a modern scientific discipline. The ongoing vibrant expansion and strong growth of the field during the last decade has fueled this second edition of the Springer Handbook of Robotics. The first edition of the handbook soon became a landmark in robotics publishing and won the American Association of Publishers PROSE Award for Excellence in Physical Sciences & Mathematics as well as the organization’s Award for Engineering & Technology. The second edition of the handbook, edited by two internationally renowned scientists with the support of an outstanding team of seven part editors and more than 200 authors, continues to be an authoritative reference for robotics researchers, newcomers to the field, and scholars from related disciplines. The contents have been restructured to achieve four main objectives: the enlargement of foundational topics for robotics, the enlightenment of design of various types of robotic systems, the extension of the treatment on robots moving in the environment, and the enrichment of advanced robotics applications. Further to an extensive update, fifteen new chapters have been introduced on emerging topics, and a new generation of authors have joined the handbook’s team. A novel addition to the second edition is a comprehensive collection of multimedia references to more than 700 videos, which bring valuable insight into the contents. The videos can be viewed directly augmented into the text with a smartphone or tablet using a unique and specially designed app. Springer Handbook of Robotics Multimedia Extension Portal: http://handbookofrobotics.org/
