Performance of Foundation for Altair Radar
The foundation for the ALTAIR antenna is a ring beam with a diameter of 118 ft, founded upon coral sand. Loads are applied to the foundation at four points; these points move around the...

Applications of Airborne Remote Sensing Technology
Aerial photography has been used for nearly a century. Recent developments in aerial photography, such as color film, color infrared film, and multiband photographic systems, have greatly...

Arecibo Radar-Radio Telescope - Design and Construction
The design and construction of the radar-radio telescope at the Arecibo Ionospheric Observatory is described. The fixed-dish spherical reflector has an 870-ft radius and a 1,000-ft diameter....

An Operational Look at Airport Design
The increase in aircraft speeds and operations led to serious problems in the control of airport traffic. The traffic controller has been subjected to a steadily increasing work load,...
