Desert areas cover approximately one-fifth of the Earth, making it important to understand how disturbance affects arid regions on a spectral level. Remote sensing technology can be used to detect and characterize surface disturbance both literally (visually) and non-literally (analytically). Non-literal approaches may even allow detection of anthropogenic-related surface disturbances that are not visible in individual images or color composites. This is achievable through identification of...

The dynamics in U.S.-Turkey relations in both 1964 and 2003 continued to be between a large global power and a medium regional power in the framework of a global threat that required regional cooperation. In both cases the priority of the global power was the fight against the global threat and this created expectations from the medium power ally in the region, who -in both cases- had its own reservations about the issue, considering its own national interests. The analysis of the 1964 Crisis...

Since the end of the Cold War, NATO has attributed great importance to the development of cooperation with Russia. This thesis, first, evaluates the main developments in NATO - Russian relations since 1991. Although Moscow and the Alliance established a NATO - Russia Council (NRC) and asserted the initiation of a qualitatively new relationship, Russia still needs to fulfill some requirements for catching up the Western standards. Russia's external relations and political, economic and security...

Standard uniformly spaced arrays are used to obtain direction information about jammers and other interference signals. In conventional systems the number of sources that can be identified by an array of N elements is N-1. Minimum redundancy arrays have the ability to handle more than N-1 interferers (up to N(N-1)/2) with N elements or less. They require the use of nonuniformly spaced array elements. The existing method for finding the element locations for an optimum minimum redundancy array...

This paper analyzes the employability of laser weapons on a Navy Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) class ship to counter small and fast boat threats. A general model of laser weapons is established to identify the attributes that characterize the laser weapon system. Quantitative values of each attribute are compared with current laser systems (that are under development) to identify potential laser types for employment on the Navy ship. In addition, plausible operational scenarios of suicide attacks...

This thesis presents a new technique for loop pipelining of perfectly-nested for-loop structures which is designed to optimize loop execution on VLIW machines. Previously implemented loop pipelining techniques provide limited performance because they explicitly include the constraints imposed by a loop's cyclic dependences in their loop pipelining process. Some loop pipelining techniques have also ignored the realistic constraint of finite resource availability in the creation of final...

A computer program was developed to solve the quasi-one- dimensional, unsteady flow problem associated with starting phenomena in various nozzle-short diffuser combinations of interest to gas dynamic lasers. The program was based on the techniques developed by George Rudinger in his book, Wave Diagrams for Nonsteady Flow in Ducts. The techniques were modified to facilitate a fixed grid for computational ease. The program was used to analyze the starting transients of a Mach 3 nozzle with a...

This thesis investigates the relationship between Washington based Project Managers and a Test and Evaluation (T&E) facility, the Pacific Missile Test Center (PMTC). Five areas of the relationship are examined. First, the formal weapon system acquisition process as prescribed by current directives is presented as an overview. Next, the Pacific Missile Test Center organization is analyzed. This is followed by an investigation of funding techniques, and specifically, those employed by PMTC....

This thesis focuses on the evolution of the Moroccan economy. It also looks at how the implementation of the Structural Adjustment Program delayed decentralization and how its success led to privatization that resulted in improved performance of the economy. During the first decades after the independence, the Moroccan economy made considerable strides. The intervention of the government was essential and, as a result, the GDP averaged 5.6% in 1968- 72 and 7.5% in 1973-77. Investment expanded...

The problem o£ cost growth o£ major systems acquisitions has long been an important concern within the Department o£ Defense (DOD) and Congress. A brief review of acquisition history from the 40 's to the present shows little success in controlling it. With so many unsuccessful past changes to the organization and processes, the cost growth problem begs for a new approach.

The literature reviewed provides strong evidence that individually metering resident utilities provides an estimated 10 to 35 percent utility reductions simply by providing a financial incentive for tenants to conserve utilities.

Properties of two alternative procedures to the Jackknife Point and Confidence Interval Estimation Procedure of Gaver and Chu have been studied. They are called the Log- Normal Likelihood Procedure (LNLJ) and the Moment Procedure (MP) . These two procedures were investigated and compared with the Jackknife Point and Confidence Interval Availability Estimation Procedure.

Historically, empires have sought to subjugate or destroy target populations by any means necessary, up to and including the use of genocide. However, the proliferation of information technology has provided new ways for state-level entities to influence others without the social and political fallout associated with violent acts of imperialism.

There is a widespread perception in the U.S. that a concrete block pavement (CBP) is an untried pavement alternative. However, each year more of these pavements are being installed. The available literature concerning this type of pavement is limited in the U.S. as most research papers are published elsewhere. This report examines CBP's from several perspectives in order to provide an overview of this alternative pavement technology. First, the CBP system is described. The importance of using...

Chechens united to support the separatist cause during the 1994 Russian invasion of Chechnya. However, after the first Russo-Chechen War, the new Chechen president was unable to unite the Chechen elites, and rebel field commanders sought patronage elsewhere, particularly with groups connected to transnational jihadist networks.

The primary objective of this thesis was to build a mathematical model to predict the probability of a target moving according to a two-dimensional random tour model avoiding detection (i.e., surviving) to some specified time, t. This model assumes that there is a stationary searcher having a 'cookie-cutter' sensor located in the center of the search area. A Monte-Carlo simulation computer program was used to generate the non-detection probabilities. The output of this program was used to...

The omni-present low frequency wave motion (30-300 sec) contains a substantial fraction of the total wave energy inside the surf zone. A more complete description of nearshore wave processes considers incident short period wind waves superposed on, and interacting with, long standing waves. The wind waves are modulated in amplitude, wavenumber and direction due to relatively slowly varying depth changes caused by the long waves. The energy in the wind wave band is enhanced by side band growth...

The purpose of this thesis is to find an automated way to identify push-to-talk transmitters using a wavelet or a spectral correlation based approach. In the wavelet approach, a distance algorithm is applied to the wavelet scales of the signal and the template. One signal from each transmitter set is taken as a template. The distance algorithm computes the distance between the local extrema of the wavelet coefficients of the template and the signal. Results show that the Wavelet Transform (WT)...
