  2. Optimized Information Display for Tactical Air Control Party


    ABSTRACT:Tactical Air Control Parties (TACP) and Joint Terminal Air Controller (JTAC) deploy with not only a significant amount of gear, but also a large work load in order to manage all of their responsibilities. As the battlefield becomes more digitized, it is forcing TACPs/JTACs (which we will refer to as just TACPs for brevity in the document) to deal with more information than their current s ...

  8. The use of acousto-ultrasonics to determine the quality of the brazing and grinding of carbide tipped cutting tools

    SBC: S.T.S., INC.            Topic: 81

    Thin saws, although more difficult to manufacture and use, conserve valuable wood fiber resources and make the users of these thin saws more competitive globally. As such, thinner sawblades are growing in popularity in spite of the "challenges" associated with their manufacture and use. Three of those challengers revolve around brazing tips into thinner sawblades1) Because the steel is thinner, le ...
