Since 1989, the United States has embarked on numerous complex contingency operations overseas — especially in Somalia, Haiti, and Bosnia — requiring a high degree of coordination between the civilian and military sides of the operations.

Rockets from Gaza documents rocket attacks by Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups in Gaza against Israeli population centers before, during and after Israel's three-week military offensive in Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009.

Protecting the civilian population is one of the central tenets of U.S. counterinsurgency doctrine. Until very recently, however, the U.S. military has not had a formal system for documenting the level of violence directed against Iraqi civilians. Therefore, other groups (such as nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations,
Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) in Afghanistan may eventually be seen as a turning point for U.S. government involvement in complex humanitarian-assistance operations.

The Global Positioning System(GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system
that was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in the early
1970s. Initially, GPS was developed as a military system to fulfill U.S. mili-
tary needs. However, it was later made available to civilians, and is now a
dual-use systemthat can be accessed by bothmilitary and civilian users .
This book is about GPS and INS and their integration. An inertial navigation unit can be used anywhere on the globe, but it must be updated within hours of use by independent navigation sources such as GPS or celestial navigation. Thousands of self-contained INS units are in continuous use on military vehicles, and an increasing number are being used in civilian applications. 2.1.1 Systems Other Than GPS
Signal Characteristics and Information Extraction
Why is the GPS signal so complex? GPS was designed to be readily accessible to millions of military and civilian users. Therefore, it is a receive-only passive system for a user, and the number of users that can simultaneously use the system is unlimited. Because there are many functions that must be performed, the GPS signal has a rather complex structure.
