The Chronoscopic Society: Globalization, Time and Knowledge in the Network Economy (Digital Formations)

During this groundbreaking e-book, media and time theorist Robert Hassan seems on the results of the nexus among neoliberal globalization and the data expertise revolution upon the construction and dissemination of information in technologically complicated societies. This nexus has created what Hassan calls an "information ecology," an atmosphere that is affecting the person, tradition and society within the comparable dialectical methods because the usual and equipped setting.

Frequency Bands for Military and Commercial Applications 2-16 CHAPTER TWO antennas that are formed by two cylindrical dipoles and driven by a pair of transmission lines, and sleeved dipoles and monopoles, which are doubly fed antennas with the current at a maximum at the center of the dipole or base of the monopole. Their omnidirectional radiation patterns are well suited for terrestrial LOS communications over vast distances. Reflector antennas have high gain and are very directive making them well suited for earth-based stations communicating with satellites in orbit.

A severe disadvantage of linear array configurations is their restricted field of view. Reasonable beam-shaping and scanning can be achieved by modifying the array element amplitudes. However, many arrays have restricted angular range. This drawback can be overcome by array configurations conforming to curved surfaces. As such, every array element may have a different geometrical orientation, and suitable element amplitude directivity behavior can be a difficult task. Beam-shaping techniques have been developed incorporating digital signal-processing techniques for the necessary flexibility to achieve desirable designs (see Chapter 22).
