Battlefield America is a story of Americas survival as early Christmas morning, the country is awoken to the sound of an invasion on her shores and in her towns. Chaos runs rampant and everything seems hopeless. But Americas defenders, the United States Military, are put to the test to defend their beloved country and protect their fellow citizens no matter the cost. The story is not only about Americas survival. It is also a testament to the brave men and women who, regardless of the danger and at perilous risk to their own safety, charge towards the teeth of the lion. These brave warriors refuse to cave into their own fears and refuse to quit on each other.
This book presents all aspects of situational awareness using acoustic signals. It starts by presenting the science behind understanding and interpretation of sound signals. The book then goes on to provide various signal processing techniques used in acoustics to find the direction of sound source, localize gunfire, track vehicles and detect people. The necessary mathematical background and various classification and fusion techniques are presented. The book contains majority of the things one would need to process acoustic signals for all aspects of situational awareness in one location. The book also presents array theory, which is pivotal in finding the direction of arrival of acoustic signals. In addition, the book presents techniques to fuse the information from multiple homogeneous/heterogeneous sensors for better detection. MATLAB code is provided for majority of the real application, which is a valuable resource in not only understanding the theory but readers can also use the code as a spring-board to develop their own application based software code. Thyagaraju Damarla works at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.

?Battlefields have been the object of fascination for millions of tourists and the subjects of elaborate interpretation projects. This volume will outline the process and results of developing the WWII Maritime Heritage Trail: Battle of Saipan Project. This book will provide examples of how a group of archaeologists, managers and a community took a specific battle and transformed it from a collection of unknown archaeological sites into a comprehensive storied battlescape that reflects the individuals and actions of those who were involved. It will provide an in-depth view of current maritime archaeological research on submerged battlefield sites, the development of a WWII battlefield maritime heritage trail, as well as the problems and solutions of such an effort. It will cover subjects such as: -heritage and dark tourism-conflict or battlefield archaeology-public interpretation, and community engagement. This volume will serve as a practical review of a project influenced by a range of complementary areas of study and inclusive of many stakeholders, from the public to the professional and beyond. It provides an example of a balanced approach towards research and interpreting archaeological sites through the identification and inclusion of the various stakeholders (professional and community) and an awareness of what was being included, ignored, or inadequately represented in the research and interpretation. Dr. Jennifer McKinnon , the senior editor, has nearly 20 years of experience conducting archaeology and eight years teaching maritime archaeology. McKinnon was employed as a Senior Lecturer at Flinders University, Australia from 2006-2013 and now is an Assistant Professor at East Carolina University, North Carolina. During her time at Flinders she was the principal investigator of the WWII Maritime Heritage Trail: Battle of Saipan Project, a multi-year teaching and research project that focused on the investigation and interpretation of the WWII Battle of Saipan. This project partnered with Ships of Discovery of which Jennifer is a Research Associate. The project had a strong community engagement component and included students, managers, volunteers, and colleagues from Australia, the US and Saipan. McKinnon received the Governors Humanities Award for Preservation of CNMI Heritage in 2011 for her work in Saipan. McKinnon has co-edited two books (In Situ Conservation of Cultural Heritage: Public, Professionals and Preservation , PAST Foundation; A Year in Review: 2006 Program in Maritime Archaeology , Flinders University Maritime Archaeology Monograph Series), published a number of peer-reviewed journal articles (including Journal of Maritime Archaeology , International Journal of Nautical Archaeology , Bulletin of the Australasian Institute of Maritime Archaeology ) and written book chapters (two in Springer Press), as well as countless archaeological reports and public outreach products. McKinnon has also reviewed publications for Journal of Maritime Archaeology, Post-Medieval Archaeology, Maney Publishing, Left Coast Press, International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Historical Archaeology, Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, Queensland Archaeological Research, and Northeastern Historical Archaeology . Dr. Toni Carrell , co-editor, has 40 years of experience in maritime archaeology with experience in the Caribbean, Western Pacific, Mexico, Great Lakes, and in a variety of lakes and reservoirs in the U.S. She was employed by the National Park Service Submerged Cultural Resources Unit (NPS-SCR) from 1976-1990. Carrell joined Ships of Discovery in 1990, where she serves as Vice President. During her time with the NPS-SCR, Carrell worked extensively in the Pacific and was the senior author of Submerged Cultural Resources Assessment of Micronesia (1990) the first comprehensive archaeological report focusing on underwater cultural heritage in the region. Carrell received an award in 1988 from the Republic of Palau, Bureau of Cultural Resources for her supervision of Operation Sea Mark, a joint NPS and US Navy EOD project directed at documentation of shipwrecks in Palau. Prior to that Carrell received an Advisory Council on Historic Preservation commendation for her work in Kosrae in 1981. She revisited her early work in the Pacific as the senior author of Maritime History and Archaeology of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (2009). Carrell has edited or contributed to numerous publications
The global economy is becoming an increasingly turbulent world; this changing context is placing new demands on organisational thinking. This book examines how similar demands have been met by the British military and how these solutions could be utilised by a wider community of practitioners.
Berlin 1985. The western part of the city is limited by the inhumane wall, and behind the scenes of daily politics act the Allies, and their intelligence services. In this chaos, Kowalski must uncover the death of a contact man to the Polish smugglers scene. The bloody trail leads him toward the raid of the century. The author is an employee of the German Lexicon of Comics and of the Sprechblase, the trade magazine for comics. In mycomics, the Internet forum of the Panini publishing house (Marvel, DC), he has published several comic-books. The 1980s witnessed Reginald Rosenfeldt in divided Berlin and meet many public figures, who are his models for the fictional characters of the book.
In Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the follow-up to his award-winning book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead paints a terrifying portrait of a nation at war with itself and which is on the verge of undermining the basic freedoms guaranteed to the citizenry in the Constitution. Indeed, police have been transformed into extensions of the military, towns and cities have become battlefields, and the American people have been turned into enemy combatants, to be spied on, tracked, scanned, frisked, searched, subjected to all manner of intrusions, intimidated, invaded, raided, manhandled, censored, silenced, shot at, locked up, and denied due process.
Scientific Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, , language: English, abstract: This paper discusses in varying detail the realities of the twenty-first-century battlefield environment. Unless practiced by large nation-states against each other, conventional warfare is a dying platform by which asymmetric warfare and terrorism have replaced the conventional warfare dynamic. Asymmetric warfare is defined as the blurring of the lines between politics, economics, combatants, civilians, and their context in the prosecution of war on an ever changing battlefield. Inclusive in this dynamic is cyber, communications, terrorism, the use of civilians as human shields and as both offensive and defensive weapons. Fourth generation warfare, as asymmetrical warfare has come to be known, is not new. It has existed in every war since the dawn of man. What is different is the total application of asymmetric components on a battlefield as a means to fight. The population-centric model, as espoused by the United States Army and Marine Corps, has now made it into the lexicon of air operations in Iraq, a segment of war prosecution it was never designed for. As a result, the Air Force has been subjected to mission paralysis and ultimately, mission failure. David Galula gave future military commanders guidance, not hard and fast rules. Rules of engagement have come to favor the enemy, and if the reality of war does not return to those in command, the United States may never win another war.
This book explores changes in emotional cultures of the early modern battlefield. Military action involves extraordinary modes of emotional experience and affective control of the soldier, and it evokes strong emotional reactions in society at large. While emotional experiences of actors and observers may differ radically, they can also be tightly connected through social interaction, cultural representations and mediatisation. The book integrates psychological, social and cultural perspectives on the battlefield, looking at emotional behaviour, expression and representation in a great variety of primary source material. In three steps it discusses the emotional practices in the army, the emotional experiences of the individual combatant and the emotions of the mediated battlefield in the visual arts.
