Sophie, Rice and Fish

By: Mark Hill

'Eat Pray Love' meets 'An Apple A Day' meets 'Under The Tuscan Sun'. Stuck in a job he hates, madly smitten with a woman two decades his junior, racing helplessly into middle age and living in a world where vodka and orange juice is considered breakfast food, Mark Hill knows it's time to make a big life change. He quits his job, stuffs a few clothes and some personal items into an old navy duffel bag, sends all of his other possessions to the bin or the charity shop and books a one-way ticket to Portugal. In a small town slightly off the tourist trail he leaves the rat race behind, discovers a slower pace of life, comes to terms with unrequited love, develops a taste for fresh fish and eventually learns how to say "boa tarde." Poignant, insightful and sometimes funny, Sophie, Rice and Fish is for anyone who’s ever thought "there has to be more to life than this." ...

Wright Flyer Paper : The Cheshire Jet; Harnessing Metamaterials to Achieve an Optical Stealth Capability, Vol. 44

By: Major Timothy E. Beers, USAF

This paper addresses the question, “Will metamaterials facilitate an operationally feasible and significant optical stealth capability for the US Air Force?” To answer this question, the author’s research is directed at the advances and development patterns of optical band metamaterials; specifically, it addresses the leading indicators of frequency, bandwidth, and energy loss. Following that, a backcasting futures technique helps uncover the obstacles of metamaterial durability, suitability, and manufacturability. This paper concludes with a 20-year timeline for optical band metamaterial capabilities and applications....

Prizivanje Katarine : Antropološki triler

By: Dejan Skile Markovic

Usko žanrovski posmatrano, po svojoj formi, Prizivanje Katarine je politički triler, i predstavlja nastavak prethodnog romana D.M.Skileta po imenu Knjiga snimanja. Knjiga snimanja govorila je o ratnim profiterima i zaveri u najvišim krugovima srpske politike, o sprezi politike i kriminala, dok se u Prizivanju Katarine osim sa ovom neizbežnom spregom takođe susrećemo sa jednim drugačijim, okultnim, Beogradom, sa pravim stranim plaćenicima i pravim revolucionarima, sa nenapisanom srpskom istorijom, i sa sasvim originalnom verzijom najvećeg srpskog ratničkog mita.. Naime, ratnički mitovi često određuju i usmeravaju narode: Englezima puno znači mit o Svetom gralu, Nemcima mit o Nibelunzima, što je sasvim bezazleno do trenutka kad se neko seti da mit proglasi za državnu politiku. Tada po pravilu nastaje nacionalna katastrofa – jedna takva se desila u Hitlerovoj Nemačkoj a druga u Miloševićevoj Srbiji. Kosovske mitomane imamo i danas na političkoj sceni, a nacionalni problem broj jedan i dalje je Kosovo. Ovo nagoni na razmišljanje: zbog čega smo toliko privrženi kosovskom mitu? Koliko u njemu ima činjenica, a koliko je nastajao kao instru...

Theory of Contact : Past Contacts, Volume 3

By: Jose Fernandez

This is the third book of the series. The heroes are moved to uncharted waters, all in search for the causes of their problems. Yet, they do not know they have problems and are deep in them. This was meant to be the last book in the series at this time I had a job and all was fine. However, I as many others, immersed in our problems do not see that the worse obstacles are planted by people close to you. Now that my financial distractions were over, I noticed some odd circumstances around me. I still could not put my finger on it. Afterwards I decided to write the fourth book, Present Contacts....

Wright Flyer Paper : How Small Is Too Small?; Technology into 2035, Vol. 46

By: Major Paul E. Kladitis, USAF

The Department of Defense (DOD) anticipates the realization of biomimetic bird and two-inch, insect-sized systems within the 2015–47 period. Although robot systems of one millimeter or smaller are not explicitly specified in current DOD and Air Force technology road maps, the technological aims towards this size can be clearly inferred from official documents. This research assesses the likelihood of, and barriers to, the realization of true microrobots and nanorobots (defined as submillimeter-sized robots of micro-meter and nanometer proportions, respectively) that can perform in military applications by 2035. This research finds that the realization of true microrobots for military applications by 2035 is unlikely, except for a single case of microrobots....

Information as a Weapon : Reality versus Promises

By: Major YuLin G. Whitehead, USAF

The study investigates whether information as a weapon can achieve the purposes of war. Specifically, can the use of the “information weapon” diminish an adversary’s will and capacity to fight. The results indicate that while information may be considered a weapon, it is one that must be used with caution. The more enthusiastic proponents of the information weapon tend to overestimate its ability to diminish enemy will and capacity to fight....

Targeting for Effect : Analytical Framework for Counterland Operations

By: Major Scott G. Walker, USAF

This study analyzes the use of airpower against enemy ground forces. Maj Scott G.Walker assesses current doctrinal definitions of the close air support and interdiction missions as seen by the Air Force and Army, comparing and contrasting the two. The themes that recur throughout are the need for planning to remain flexible, using the speed and firepower of air attack to concentrate force where needed, and the requirement for good operational and tactical intelligence....

Planting the Seeds of SEAD : The Wild Weasel in Vietnam

By: Major William A. Hewitt, USAF

The introduction of Shrike anti-radiation missile (ARM) negated the requirement to overfly the site, but its short range required further improvement. The improvement came in the Standard ARM, a missile that was followed by development of the High-Speed Anti- Radiation Missile, or HARM, the weapon of choice for today’s Weasel. That aircraft is the Wild Weasel, indicating the need for such an aircraft in the future....

The Quick Response Air Force : Decisive Expeditionary Airpower for the Future?

By: Major G. Larry Thompson, USAF

This analysis concludes the answer is to reorganize existing forces into a Quick Response Airpower Force (QRAF). The QRAF concept involves a force structure that can help reduce the operations tempo in the DOD by replacing forward presence with a credible continental United States-based, quick response, deterrent force. This study presents a discussion and background of the problem, its importance, related problems, and past attempts at solutions. It offers a framework describing a quick response force and what it should be capable of doing. After discussing the current US Air Force attempts to provide this capability, the composite wing and the Airpower Expeditionary Force, the force of tomorrow—the threetiered QRAF—is presented. The study concludes with recommendations for further study, limitations of the analysis, and its implications....

A Cyberspace Command and Control Model

By: Colonel Joseph H. Scherrer, USAF; Lieutenant Colonel William C. Grund, USAF

The authors assert that the lack of an effective cyberspace C2 structure critically reduces the responsiveness to combatant and joint task force commanders and increases the difficulty of integrating cyberspace capabilities into operational plans and execution. The traditional military hierarchies currently used for cyberspace C2 do not have the agility to deal with the high velocity of change that characterizes cyberspace. Instead, the authors argue for flexible organizational structures to match the complexity and pace of the cyberspace operational environment....

Impact of Foreign Ownership on the Civil Reserve Air Fleet

By: Lieutenant Colonel Donald M. Schauber Jr., USAF

The US commercial air carriers provide a unique and critical enabler that helps us meet our mobility requirements in the form of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF). Colonel Schauber contends that changes allowing increased foreign ownership or control opportunities would threaten our national security by jeopardizing the DOD’s accessibility to CRAF assets. Although the CRAF has formally been utilized only twice, its importance and our reliance on it cannot be overstated....

Near Space : Should Air Force Space Command Take Control of Its Shore?

By: Lieutenant Colonel Kurt D. Hall, USAF

Gen John P. Jumper, former Air Force chief of staff, tasked Air Force Space Command with the responsibility of developing, fielding, and executing tactical and operationally responsive space capabilities near and through space. The newly created initiative known as Joint Warfighting Space focused on near space due to the advantage of achieving spacelike capabilities at a lower cost. Such capabilities could offer continuous, organic, survivable, and “stay and stare” persistence to theater commanders, thus potentially relieving the need for national and strategic systems. Effects-based operations, network-centric warfare, and rapid maneuver demand this persistence....
