The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has sponsored research and personnel safety standards development for exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR) for over twenty years. The Aerospace Medical Panel of the Advisory Group For Aerospace Research and Development (AGARD) sponsored Lecture Series No. 78 Radiation Hazards, ! in 1975, in the Netherlands, Germany, and Norway, on the subject of Radiation Hazards to provide a review and critical analysis of the available information and concepts. In the same year, Research Study Group 2 on Protection of Personnel Against Non-Ionizing Electromagnetic Radiation (Panel VIIl of AC/243 Defence Research Group, NATO) proposed a revision to Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 2345. The intent of the proposal was to revise the ST ANAG to incorporate frequency-dependent-RFR safety guidelines. These changes are documented in the NATO STANAG 2345 (MED), Control and Recording of Personnel Exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation,2 promulgated in 1979. Research Study Group 2 (RSG2) of NATO Defense Research Group Panel VIII (AC1243) was organized, in 1981, to study and contribute technical information concerning the protection of military personnel from the effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation. A workshop at the Royal Air Force Institute of Aviation Medicine, Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, U. K. was held to develop and/or compile sufficient knowledge on the long-term effects of pulsed RFR to maintain safe procedures and to minimize unnecessary operational constraints
The linear theory of oscillations traditionally operates with frequency representa tions based on the concepts of a transfer function and a frequency response. The universality of the critria of Nyquist and Mikhailov and the simplicity and obvi ousness of the application of frequency and amplitude - frequency characteristics in analysing forced linear oscillations greatly encouraged the development of practi cally important nonlinear theories based on various forms of the harmonic balance hypothesis . Therefore mathematically rigorous frequency methods of investi gating nonlinear systems, which appeared in the 60s, also began to influence many areas of nonlinear theory of oscillations. First in this sphere of influence was a wide range of problems connected with multidimensional analogues of the famous van der Pol equation describing auto oscillations of generators of various radiotechnical devices. Such analogues have as a rule a unique unstable stationary point in the phase space and are Levinson dis sipative. One of the pioneering works in this field, which started the investigation of a three-dimensional analogue of the van der Pol equation, was K. O. Friedrichs's paper . The author suggested a scheme for constructing a positively invariant set homeomorphic to a torus, by means of which the existence of non-trivial periodic solutions was established. That scheme was then developed and improved for dif ferent classes of multidimensional dynamical systems [131, 132, 297, 317, 334, 357, 358]. The method of Poincare mapping [12, 13, 17] in piecewise linear systems was another intensively developed direction.
The Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) is the next-generation multispectral imaging instrument to fly on US operational, polar-orbiting meteorological satellites. VIIRS will gather data across 22 spectral bands and be used to create products for a variety of applications including weather forecasting and climate change studies. VIIRS consolidates the best features of heritage instruments, including near-constant resolution and nighttime visible imagery. Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite: A New Operational Cloud Imager provides the first comprehensive guide on the design and exploitation of cloud data collected by the VIIRS.
This book features recent research on computational intelligence techniques for the automated design of analog and high-frequency circuits. It will help readers handle state-of-the-art algorithms and even design their own methods.
