Wright Flyer Paper : Back to the Basics; An Aviation Solution to Counterinsurgent Warfare, Vol. 23

By: Major Arthur D. Davis, USAF

In this paper, I seek to demonstrate that the methods of using airpower to take the fight to the enemy and protect our ground forces during small wars need not involve the most advanced aircraft available. This “low-tech” approach does not suggest using lesser technology per se but proposes a different look for the types of aircraft that can perform a specific mission and for their manner of employment—that of protecting ground forces while combating the elusive insurgent. These same aircraft can prove invaluable in training an indigenous force to take the fight forward. By looking to relatively inexpensive, off-the-shelf aircraft, the Air Force can protect its ground-based charges and cement a relationship with embattled nations by helping them help themselves....

Mosquitoes to Wolves : The Evolution of the Airborne Forward Air Controller

By: Gary Robert Lester

By the end of the Vietnam War, advances in technology allowed these FACs to control strikes against targets at night, in bad weather, and with improved precision. Laser-guided weapons systems, new computer navigation equipment, and advanced ground radars combined to provide an effective and lethal capability. If the Mosquitoes were an annoyance in Korea, the Wolves of Vietnam proved to be a deadly addition to the concept of FAC....

At sixty-four, I bring another full lifetime lived both at that exact moment where my experiences could straddle working in print shops and in the current digital eBook era.. My degree in human-computer interfaces in 1973 led to my appointment as adjunct professor at Benedictine University, where I built the world‘s first electronic library in 1988. You could walk into that library, and the first thing you‘d see was the computer asking if there were any books you wanted. You se...

Way back in the fifteenth century a man named Johann Gutenberg invented the ?printing press. More than 400 years passed before Ottmar Mergenthaler found a way in the late 1880s to mechanize that historic invention. Then, less than a century later – in the 1980s – digital printing displaced Mergenthaler’s wondrous Linotypes....

The Business of Domain Names

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

Business of buying, selling, developing and monetizing Internet domain names. On the Internet, the Domain Name System (DNS) associates various sorts of information with so-called domain names; most importantly, it serves as the “phone book” for the Internet: it translates human-readable computer hostnames. Domaining is the business of buying, selling, developing and monetizing Internet domain names. Such domain name portfolios often include cleverly chosen and highly marketable generic domain names, or domains whose registrations had lapsed yet still retain reasonable traffic. There is sometimes no actual intent to use any of the domain names with the exception of generating advertising revenue through domain parking. ...

Wright Flyer Paper : How Small Is Too Small?; Technology into 2035, Vol. 46

By: Major Paul E. Kladitis, USAF

The Department of Defense (DOD) anticipates the realization of biomimetic bird and two-inch, insect-sized systems within the 2015–47 period. Although robot systems of one millimeter or smaller are not explicitly specified in current DOD and Air Force technology road maps, the technological aims towards this size can be clearly inferred from official documents. This research assesses the likelihood of, and barriers to, the realization of true microrobots and nanorobots (defined as submillimeter-sized robots of micro-meter and nanometer proportions, respectively) that can perform in military applications by 2035. This research finds that the realization of true microrobots for military applications by 2035 is unlikely, except for a single case of microrobots....

Aviation Urban Operations : Are We Training Like We Fight?

By: Lieutenant Colonel, Todd G. Kemper, USMC

The author contends that urban terrain has become the preferred battlespace of US adversaries in the early twenty-first century. This environment poses unique challenges, especially to air and space warfare. The difficulty of sorting friendlies from enemy combatants, the latter intermingled with large numbers of noncombatants in very confined spaces, creates serious dilemmas for maneuver and aviation forces. Colonel Kemper believes that this mission, though well documented, has received neither the priority nor the resources necessary to ensure operational excellence and success on the modern battlefield. Thus, he not only inquires about whether we are training like we fight, but also seeks to determine what makes aviation urban operations so complicated and unique that they require stand-alone doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures....

Transport Bombers : A Conceptual Shift in Precision-Guided Munitions Delivery

By: Major Bryan J. Benson, USAF

This study addresses three main questions to determine the transport bomber’s usefulness. The first is whether commanders can use such an aircraft in ways that truly enhance force application and mobility operations without unduly undermining one in favor of the other? The answer, because of technology enhancements and budget constraints, is definitely yes. The second question targets technology, specifically, by asking whether engineers could place some elements of both missions on a single aircraft? Again, the answer appears to be positive. This study analyzes budgetary and operational constraints in an attempt to answer the question of the appropriate force mix. ...

Get Started with Video Captioning : A Beginner's Guide to Making Video Accessible: A Beginner's Guide to Making Video Accessible

By: Patrick Joseph Besong

Have a video that you need to make accessible, but don't have a clue how to start? This book will get you up and running in no time. It will show you how in layman's language how to go about the task of closed captioning your videos, what the different formats are, what software to use, and will also go over the basic style guidelines in creating captioned videos....

Captioning video not only makes video accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing, but there are other compelling reasons for it as well. These are also good talking points to convince others of the need to caption video. • Captioned videos have better user retention of the video content. • The video’s transcripts are searchable, so you will get better Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which may give you a leg up on your competition. • Captioned video also opens your market reach to a whole new segment of paying customers - the deaf! • It’s the law. Many videos that are provided to the public must be captioned either due to federal communication law, or merely a company’s policy regarding accessibility. • Language learning relies heavily on captioned video. • If the viewer is in a noisy area and does not have access to headphones, the captions can be read while watching the video. • Similarly, if the viewer does not have headphones and cannot turn up the volume due to the need to keep noise to a minimum (like in a library or nursery), the captions are there to provide what is being spoken....

Comment créer et Optimiser son profil Google+ : Pour plus de visibilité, Volume 1: Pour plus de visibilité

By: Noel NGUESSAN; Noel NGUESSAN, Editor

Le lancement du concept de Google AuthorShip apporte encore plus d’intérêt au profil Google+. Et ce, dans la mesure où il permet à Google de mettre plus en valeur et de favoriser le profil Google+ de chaque auteur identifié sur ses pages de résultats. C’est d’ailleurs ce qu’a récemment confirmé Eric Schmidt, Président du Conseil d’Administration de Google. Par conséquent, bien optimiser son profil permet de tirer avantage de cette faveur que Google compte accorder aux auteurs ayant créé un profil Google+ et l’ayant lié à tous leurs contenus. Découvrez donc dans cet eBook gratuit comment vous y prendre pour réussir l’optimisation de votre profil Google+ qui va de plus en plus influencer votre classement sur le moteur Google....

Google+ est le réseau social de Google lancé en juin 2011 et qui compterait plus de 550 millions d'utilisateurs dont 345 millions d'actifs au dernier pointage. On pourrait penser qu'avec Google+, Google essaie de concurrencer Facebook sur son propre terrain en espérant, bien sûr, prendre sa place de leader dans ce créneau. Mais, en fait, ce n'est pas vraiment la place de leader qui intéresse réellement Google. Même si cela ne lui déplairait pas d'occuper cette place. La raison principale pour laquelle Google a lancé Google+ réside surtout dans la récupération des données personnelles des internautes. Car, avoir plus de données de ses utilisateurs, c'est bien entendu pouvoir fournir des résultats personnalisés et surtout pouvoir vendre de la publicité très ciblée à chacun d'eux. Google envisage donc, avec Google+, de changer le monde de l'internet en profondeur. Et pour ce faire, il lui faut plus de données personnelles, une meilleure identification des individus et plus d'intégration de tous ses services. Google+ n'est pas encore un produit fini comme l'ont été Buzz ou Orkut. Mais, il bel et bien un projet de Goo...
