Defense Technical Information Archive

The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) is the premier repository for research and engineering information for the United States Department of Defense. DTIC's Suite of Services is available to DoD personnel, defense contractors, federal government personnel and contractors and selected academic institutions. The general public can access unclassified, unlimited information, including many full-text downloadable documents, through the public Web site, DTIC Online.

DTIC's collections contain over 4 million documents including technical reports, research in progress and Independent Research and Development (IR&D) summaries. DTIC also publishes searchable Congressional budget data shortly after its release from Congress. DTIC acquires approximately 25,000 new documents each year.

On June 4, 2004, DTIC became a DoD Field Activity under the management of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, reporting to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASD(R&E)). Mr. Christopher Thomas is the Administrator.

DTIC's mission statement is "To provide essential, technical research, development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) information rapidly, accurately and reliably to support our DoD customers' needs."

This pilot atlas introduces a new, numerically derived, historical data set in the form of a wind and wave climatology. Existing wave climatologies are primarily based on visual ship observations, these climatologies may be unreliable, particularly in data-sparse regions. This atlas provides the design, scientific and operational communities with a detailed representation of the overall wave climate of the whole North Pacific Ocean.

A fully operable laboratory model of the Remote Viewing System was designed and built. The system consists of a TV camera and TV projector both equipped with a non-linear lens, i.e. a lens that matches the human eye acuity function with excellent resolution capability near the optical axis, but greatly reduced resolution capability in the peripheral areas. The camera and projector are slaved together by a digital servo system. An operator can steer the camera and thus the projector by use of a...

Immediately following the 2008 U.S. presidential election, which occurred around the time this book was being compiled, a fracas occurred within the media surrounding some post-election campaign gossip that the Republican party's vice-presidential candidate had revealed during debate and briefing preparations that she did not understand that Africa was a continent, and instead believed it to be a single state.

Knowledge of goat anatomy is important during both the planning and experimental stages of projects.

The first in the series described the skeletal anatomy; the second described the cross- section anatomy; the third described the...

The first prototype, developed by Lanson Industries, failed the vibration tests (AFALD Report 76-39).

A new approach for solving this problem is being developed using gradient refractive index, GRIN, for lens design. The equations for lens design incorporating GRIN are formulated for the special case of spherically symmetrically GRIN. For infrared sensors located at the nose of a missile or a projectile, an age-old problem occurs. A...

The meeting was held at Airlie House in Warrenton, Virginia from 3-6 August 2000, and brought together many of the nation's top experts to evaulate issues of structure and process in the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA). The resulting volume is a pathbreaking reference work on PLA organization. While CAPS...

The computer code, Cloud Snapshots of Dust Raised Aloft (CASSANDRA), was developed to simulate the spatial distribution and concentrations of dust raised aloft by a nuclear cloud. The code utilizes the DELFIC cloud rise description as the basis for a dynamic wafer shape/transport model. Dust concentration for a particular particle size class is calculated directly from the radius of the contributing wafer at the altitude of interest. The outputs of the program are either an array of numbers...

The purpose of this research is to characterize the in vitro cellular effects of rat lung macrophages to exposure to aluminum oxide nanoparticles (Al2O3-NP) (30 and 40nm) compared to aluminum nanoparticles (Al-NP) (50, 80, and 120nm). This study concentrates on cell viability, mitochondrial function, phagocytosis ability, and cytokine response. Results indicate no to minimal toxicological effects on macrophages exposed as high as 500 μg/ml for 24 hours with Al2O3-NP. However, there was...

A quasi-geostrophic omega equation for largescale vertical velocities in the atmosphere is solved at the earth's surface, 850-, 700-, 500-, and 300-mb levels for a grid of 1977 points per level covering the major portion of the Northern Hemisphere. The effects of terrain and surface frictional stress on the vertical velocity at the lower boundary are investigated in some detail and applied at the earth's surface. The three-dimensional integration of the resulting equations excludes areas inside...
