The word radar is an acronym derived from the phrase RAdio Detection
And Ranging and applies to electronic equipment designed for detecting and tracking objects (targets) at considerable distances. The basic principle behind radar is simple - extremely short bursts of radio energy (traveling at the speed of light) are transmitted, reflected off a target and then returned as an echo.
Radar makes use of a phenomenon we have all observed, that of the
ECHO PRINCIPLE. To illustrate this principle, if a ship’s whistle were sounded in the middle of the ocean, the sound waves would dissipate their energy as they traveled outward and at some point would disappear entirely.
If, however the whistle sounded near an object such as a cliff some of the radiated sound waves would be reflected back to the ship as an echo.
The form of electromagnetic signal radiated by the radar depends upon the type of information needed about the target. Radar, as designed for marine navigation applications, is pulse modulated. Pulse-modulated radar can determine the distance to a target by measuring the time required for an extremely short burst of radio-frequency (r-f) energy to travel to the target and return to its source as a reflected echo. Directional antennas are used for transmitting the pulse and receiving the reflected echo, thereby allowing determination of the direction or bearing of the target echo.
Once time and bearing are measured, these targets or echoes are calculated and displayed on the radar display. The radar display provides the operator a birds eye view of where other targets are relative to own ship.
Radar is an active device. It utilizes its own radio energy to detect and track the target. It does not depend on energy radiated by the target itself.

Impact of Technology

...of a highly technological culture, we all use technologies as a part of our daily lives. These technologies are often taken for granted. Some students talk endlessly about a new video game or how they “can't live without” their cell phone or MP3 player. In our society, many people have embraced the benefits of high-technology without considering the possible negative effects of relying too much on these devices. In this assignment, you will have the opportunity to reflect upon the role technology plays in your life and examine how you feel about its effects on your life and the world around you. Requirements Write a report that is approximately 500 – 600 words (two word-processed, double-spaced pages) and outlines the significant interactions that you have had with technology during your life. Autobiographies are usually written in chronological order, but you may use other structures such as flashback or flash-forward if they make sense for your story. Also, because autobiographies typically use first-person, you can use “I” in your paper. To begin, you should take five or ten minutes and brainstorm a list of the technologies that you currently use or have used in the past. It may help to consider the following questions: What technology do you have in your backpack or locker? What technology do you see in the classroom? What technology do you see in other classrooms and locations in the school? What technology do you see in the workplace (yours, a......

The Impact of Technology

...The impact of technology Here are some statistics for you:  More people currently have a mobile phone capable of accessing the internet than have a PC with net access (source: Mobile Top Level Domain, the organisation charged with overseeing the ‘.mobi’ domain name registration)  Sending text messages is now almost as common as talking on mobile phones  Only 12% of mobile users never use their phone for texting (and virtually half of these people are over 65).  70% of 15-24 year-olds say they ‘could not live’ without their mobile phone  There are an estimated 110 million-150 million blogs in existence (although many of these are abandoned soon after they are established) Technology’s role in our lives is astonishing. Its effect on the way we communicate has changed the English language forever. To be more specific, the way we speak today is, by and large, the way we spoke before the internet became what it is, albeit with an enriched vocabulary. Conventions of telephone conversations have, to my mind, changed little: we still use the same methods – if not words – to greet and sign off, for example. What is hugely different, however, is the way we write today. That is the area where technology has had the biggest impact. Email altered the structure of the letter as a communicative tool. It brought with it a whole new etiquette, as well as new conventions and new abbreviations, such as IMO (in my opinion), FWIW (for what it’s worth), IIRC (if I remember......

Impact of Technology

...course of the last decade; arguably as a direct result of technology. We are constantly reminded of the technological advances when attempting to complete the simplest of everyday tasks, viewing entertainment, and all other various forms of entertainment. Nearly everything we do on a daily basis requires some form of technology; cell phones, emailing, vehicles, computers, even schools are all the result of technological advancements that would not have been possible without the significant strides that have been taken in both the business and scientific worlds’. Understanding that technology carries such significance in our lives, can we fathom even just one day without any form of technology? For any business, technology impacts internal and external users alike; companies should take heed to view any new technology they want to implement from all aspects. The company should conduct research to ensure any technological changes will ultimately benefit their customers, employees, and potential customers. One of the most important things to do as a business owner is to ensure that all updated technology is done so in such a way that is conducive to new and repeat business; by maintaining customer awareness, this will aid in the IT team developing the most beneficial technological advances while also discovering new ideas for improvement. * A business should introduce a new product to customers using technology.

Impact of Technology on Social Interaction

...The Impact of Technology Have you ever looked around and noticed that most people are not paying attention to what they are doing or whom they are talking too? With technology constantly changing it is becoming a major part of our lives and is having both a positive and negative impact on social interaction amongst people of all ages. Technology has changed dramatically and more and more people are relying on it to on a day to day basis. People, especially children went from going outdoors to hang out with friends to communicating by text, Facebook and Twitter. Communicating electronically has been made so user friendly that teens are less interested in face-to-face communication with their friends or family. According to the Telus and Technology survey done in August 2009, shows information and communication technologies are not replacing face-to-face contact but adding or enhancing it. It is giving people the ability to go their separate ways and still stay connected. Families are adding more activities to their daily schedules that text and cell phones are the main line of communication. Another study done by Pew Internet and American life Project shows that 64 percent of adults feel that new technologies has not increased or decreased the how close the family is. Dating has also had an impact of how we interact with people. Before technology, a person would have to gather the courage to go up to someone and say “Hello”, and now with just a few strokes on the......

Impact of Technologies on Teenagers

...The Impact of Technologies on Teenagers An Assignment Submitted by Name of Student Name of Establishment Class XXXX, Section XXXX, Spring 2013 Nowadays, information technologies play a significant role in the modern world. Information technologies have a long history. Some technologies were created a few years ago, while some technologies are comparatively new. Technologies have penetrated all spheres of human activities: education, politics, trade, medicine, and this list can be prolonged. Television and phones are considered to be the primary technologies which appeared in the life of human beings. New technologies were produces in great amounts. Nonetheless, people used those technologies to simplify the process of fulfilling domestic duties. T. K. Derry et. al. mentioned that “domestic housing, though it followed on the whole traditional forms, made use of new materials and new techniques of mass production” (Derry et. al., 1961, p. 403). With further development of information technologies, many other technologies appeared. The main of them are the following ones: iPhones, iPads, and many others. Technologies have produced a great impact on teenagers: phones, television, Internet, and video games have many advantages and disadvantages; they are able to make people technologically informed, but they produce a negative impact on people’s health simultaneously. The invention of mobile phones has produced a great impact on people all over the world:...

Stealth Technology

...IMPACT OF STEALTH TECHNOLOGY ON AIR DEFENCE “Stealth refers to a wide range of steps that can be taken to make aircraft harder to detect. There is a payoff and a price.” - Jay H Goldberg [i] CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION 1. The latest trends in military aircraft manufacturing are towards development and incorporation of technology which can provide with means to avoid detection. This enhances its survivability by reducing its radar signature and hence reducing the possibility of being detected by enemy radars. The degree to which this is achieved differs from aircraft to aircraft. Certain aircraft like the B-2 and F-117 have been manufactured with this technology as the basis and are thus referred to as Stealth Aircraft. In other aircraft, stealth is achieved to a lesser degree but it nevertheless helps them in enhancing their survivability against enemy air defence. The day is not far when this technology is likely to find wide spread use in the field of aviation. 2. The dictionary defines stealth as "evasion of notice". Applied to Aerial Warfare, it implies the ability of an aircraft, or platform, to carry out its mission without being detected. Other terms such as "LO" - low observables, or "RO"- reduced observables, have also been used which imply the same thing. The very concept of 'Stealth' conjures up an image of something moving in secretly without being detected. 'Stealth' technology actually is all about the art of making aircraft, missiles and...

The Study on Stealth Design Technology

...The Study on Stealth Design Technology Abstract—In this report we study some basic ideas on stealth technology. Loosely speaking, the stealth technology can be divided into two categories: the study on target shape design and the study on radar absorbing materials. In this report, we explain the basic principles of these two categories, and give some simulations by CST Microwave Studio and Feko to show the effects of stealth technology. I. I NTRODUCTION The purpose of stealth design is to protect the target from being detected by the enemy’s radar and to increase the target survivability. Ideally, for an object to be ”stealth”, it needs to have a low optical visibility in addition to being low observable in the infrared spectrum and at all radar frequency bands, also the emission of acoustic noise should be low. However, this goal is difficult to achieve, and the recent research is mainly focus on the low observability in a certain radar bandwidth. In some degree, the term ”stealth design” is equivalent to the technology of reducing target’s the Radar Cross Section (RCS). RCS is the parameter to characterize the strength of backward scattering of the target, the formal definition is σ = lim 4πR2 R−>∞ Fig. 1: B-2 stealth bomber |Es |2 , |Ei |2 (1) Fig. 2: F117 stealth fighter plane where, R is the distance from target to radar, |Es | is the scattered electric field intensity and |Ei | is the incident electric field intensity.

Impact of Technology the impact of information technology and artificial intelligence on the organization, privacy and control, research and instructional practices and ethics. Evolution of information technology has affected all these practices, and has helped them in improving their performance in some way. Information technology has opened a new era of information for today's organization (it might be business, non-profit, educational, research etc.) and has enabled it to gather and communicate information and thus function in a more effective way. On the other hand decision-making capability of the computers has changed the pattern of authority and responsibility with in the organization. Although information technology has bombarded the organization with all kind of information, but it has failed to take into account the limited capability of the society to absorb and use all the available information. In order to make information technology more effective, it must have the capability of providing the organization with relevant information and should be able to realize the needs of the users instead of procedures. Along with providing information, information technology has given rise to various technological problems, like establishing rules to use the available information and protecting it to be accesses by undesirable people. Another thing that the organization needs to be aware about, is the quality of information in order to make quality decisions. Information technology......

...  Today there are over 7.2 billion people on our planet and that number is increasing at an alarming rate. With advances in modern technology our population numbers have seen tremendous results. Doctors today are much more capable of preventing still born and infant deaths and have even made outstanding progress in in-vitro fertilization and other fertility drugs; giving many women the chance to carry children of their own where it would otherwise be deemed impossible if done so naturally. On the other end of the spectrum, doctors are now able to prolong life adding nearly 30 years to our life expectancy. With the human population expected to reach 8 billion people by 2024, can our planet actually sustain that many people? During the Industrial Revolution in the eighteenth century, population numbers began to rise hitting the 1 billion mark in the early 1800’s and has spiraled from there; hitting 2 billion in 1927, 3 billion in 1960, 4 billion 14 years later (1927), 13 years later in 1987 reaching 5 billion, 12 years after we were at 6 billion in 1999, and recently in 2011 we reached the 7 billion mark ("World population," n.d.). We as the human race are reproducing and staying alive much longer and with no sign of it slowing down any time soon. During the 20th century alone, the population of the earth has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion people. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are today.

...Technology’s Impact on Employee Training Introduction Technology impacts every aspect of our lives in the 21st century. In our fast-paced professional environments, we continually seek efficiencies with our time management skills and training methods that meet the real time needs of both the organization and the individuals that require that these learning objectives are implemented into their daily jobs. In the past, on-the-job training offered the most effective avenue for transferring knowledge. However, with the introduction of technology in the United States during the 20th century, ensuring quality standards were implemented meant that organizations had to re-evaluate their training methodologies. Additionally, laws implemented to advocate for workers also brought about changes in the approach to employee training. With the onset of technology as a helpmeet for understanding the needs of an organization as well as offering training that helps grow the business, employers began implementing these new technological learning opportunities when offering employees both company-centric and legally required training. Noe (2010) tell us that, “Recognizing the value of human, social, and structural knowledge, many companies are attempting to become learning organizations and to manage knowledge in order to develop better products and improve customer service.” Therefore, as companies proceed into the 21st century and modify their approach to training on a global......

You might love it but you are at a risk, at the cost of your privacy. You may not be aware of the dangers you face making so much personal information available, but that isn't all that is bad about Facebook. With tons of applications available out there, Facebook is one of the most addictive sites on the Internet. People get hooked on applications and games like Farmville, Mafia Wars, etc. Many schools report that the average grade of students has gone down and the main cause is social networking sites. People may end up losing jobs if they are caught socializing during work hours, when instead they should have been working. I don’t use it much there are many more things I can say but it would take me a while most kids in the old days didn’t have computers they use to play tag or hide and seek or color or something but now not all of us do this honestly kids aren’t really supposed to go on the internet for a few reasons but there are more viruses, spyware, popups, scams, spam, hoaxes the should have a book in there hand not a mouse but technology is helpful too Technology saves lives Technology saves lives.
