Today's defense systems incorporate an increasing number of electronic components, intended to
enable these systems to be more accurate, more sophisticated, and more effective. Advances in printed
circuits and associated interconnection—an integral technology—have enabled this trend, and these
advances are expected to continue to enable future combat systems.
They now include finer conductor tracks
and thinner laminates, present in an ever-increasing number of layers. Integrated circuits have become
dramatically sophisticated especially in the last decade. This has in turn created new design
requirements for mounting them on the boards. While insertion was common with DIP (dual in-
line-package) technology in the 1970s, surface mount technology in now being increasingly employed.
holes is increasing; and hole diameters are rapidly decreasing.
Progress in information technology (IT) has been remarkable, but the best truly is yet to come: the power of IT as a human enabler is just beginning to be realized. Whether the nation builds on this momentum or plateaus prematurely depends on today’s decisions about fundamental research in computer science (CS) and the related fields behind IT. The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) has often been asked to examine how innovation occurs in IT,
The Board on International Comparative Studies in Education
(BICSE) was established by the National Research Council (NRC) in
1988 at the request of the U.S. Department of Education’s National
Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and the U.S. National Science
Foundation (NSF). Under its initial mandate, the board monitored
U.S. participation in large-scale international comparative studies.
This report is the final product of a two-year study by the
Committee on Assessing Technological Literacy, a group
of experts on diverse subjects under the auspices of the
National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and the Board on Testing and
Assessment at the Center for Education, part of the National Research
Council (NRC). The committee’s charge was to determine the most
viable approach or approaches to assessing technological literacy in U.S.
K–12 students, K–12 teachers, and out-of-school adults.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) asked the National
Research Council’s (NRC) Board on Science, Technology, and Economic
Policy (STEP) to review the operations of the Advanced Technology Program
(ATP) to ascertain if the program is achieving its legislated objectives and to
recommend potential improvements in its operations.
The American medical regulatory system was established to limit the practice
of medicine to qualified practitioners and thereby protect the public from
unprofessional, improper, and incompetent individuals. The states exercise
their police powers to license only those practitioners who meet minimum
standards of education and skill. This regulatory authority is administered by
a medical licensing board or other state agency.

This monograph summarizes research conducted by RAND Arroyo Center in support of the 2002 Army Science Board Aviation Study. The purpose of this five-month study was to help the Aviation Panel of the Army Science Board explore and assess survivability concepts and technologies associated with flexible transport aircraft that could be used to make possible new operational maneuver options for the Army’s future force.
This report summarizes work performed during a quick-response analytic effort in support of the 2001 Army Science Board (ASB) Summer Study on Objective Force Soldier, along with subsequent efforts in related areas. The work used high-resolution constructive simulation to examine key aspects of “objective soldier,” with the modeling taking place in the 2015–2020 time frame.

Some hackers destroy people's files or entire hard drives; they're called
crackers or vandals. Some novice hackers don't bother learning the
technology, but simply download hacker tools to break into computer
systems; they're called script kiddies. More experienced hackers with
programming skills develop hacker programs and post them to the Web
and to bulletin board systems. And then there are individuals who have no
interest in the technology, but use the computer merely as a tool to aid
them in stealing money, goods, or services.
Chuck Schoeffler, Ph.D., authored portions
of the v1.2 text in conjunction with Parallax, Inc. At
that time, Dr Schoeffler was a professor at
University of Idaho's Industrial Technology
Education department. He designed the original
Board of Education Robot (Boe-Bot) shown here
along with many similar robot derivatives with
unique functions. After several revisions, Chuck's
design was adopted as the basis of the Parallax
Boe-Bot that is used in this Text. Russ Miller of
Parallax designed the Boe-Bot based on this
BI is not only recession-proof, it actually thrives in a down market. While many firms have been cutting expenses across the board, investment in BI has grown by 20 percent in 2008 versus 13 percent the previous year. BI makes executives take a critical look at their operations. When business leaders understand and embrace BI, it can be a game changer.
Word 2007 is like a typewriter on steroids! In this respect Word is no different from other word processing
programs. Since the computer has become a common household and workplace item the typewriter has almost
disappeared. Some people might have kept their typewriter, but that is mostly for sentimental reasons.
Nowadays a typewriter is only used when a carbon copy is needed. If you do not need carbon copies, and if you
have a personal computer (PC), you might just as well donate the old “chopping board” to a museum.
On the global stage small businesses are represented in many different communities. At a UK and EU level small businesses are defined as having 10-50 employees and offer considerable scope for innovation and productivity. Additionally, the European Union Research and Advisory Board (EURAB, 2004) has provided a helpful typology in terms of the amount of R&D that is undertaken. Four basic categories provide insight into the level of use and the extent of R&D that is conducted.
Nine years has passed since the 1992 second edition of the encyclopedia was published. This completely revised third edition, which is a university and professional level compendium of chemistry, molecular biology, mathematics, and engineering, is refreshed with numerous articles about current research in these fields. For example, the new edition has an increased emphasis on information processing and biotechnology, reflecting the rapid growth of these areas.
Computer science has drawn from and contributed to many
disciplines and practices since it emerged as a field in the
middle of the 20th century. Those interactions, in turn,
have contributed to the evolution of information technology:
New forms of computing and communications, and new applications,
continue to develop from the creative interaction of computer
science and other fields.
The point of departure of the commitment to this topic area on the part of The Norwegian
Board of Technology is an increasing portion of elderly people in the population,
development of new communication, security and information technology, comprehensive
municipal construction of health care housing and shortage of health care personnel. The
consensus conference dealt with both elderly people’s use of ICT as a means of
communication and the use of ICT in housing for the elderly (smart-home technology).
