This book was written for the 2nd Annual Modeling and Simulation Summit, Pre-Conference Focus Day Workshop: Using Math to Defeat the Enemy: Combat Modeling for Simulation (Monday, August 29th... More > 2011).
Although mathematics is key to combat model for simulation, this book provides just a cursory survey of mathematical model, and includes heuristics and other algorithms. The book covers behavior models, environmental models, communication models, target detection models, attrition model, entity and aggregate level models, and multi-resolution models. It provides examples of past and current model, simulations, and wargames to stimulate learning and discussion.< Less

Finally, It's Here !!!
The Book that explains What and Why
about both, the Boeing 757 and 767.
Simple explanations and easy-to-understand graphics show you;
A) what you need to know to understand... More > these airplanes and,
B) some of the stuff you've always wondered about.
Whether you're getting ready for a Transition Oral, your 4th PC, or are just
curious about "glass" airplanes, this study guide will provide an operational
understanding of the logic of these airplanes.
All totaled, the study guide is
only 108 pages long (or more preferably, short) and includes a very complete
chapter of Oral Questions and Answers.
Originally printed in 1946, The Fleet Type Submarine series of technical manuals remains unparalleled. Contained in its pages are descriptions of every operating component
aboard a fleet boat. ... More > Main Propulsion Diesels examines the submarine’s power plant in detail, from starting and control systems to fuel and exhaust, and cooling and lubrication systems.
Originally classified “Restricted”, this book was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form. Some illustrations have been slightly reformatted, and color plates are reproduced in black and white. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.< Less
In the late 1940’s and early 50’s, planes flew
higher and faster than anyone had dreamed
possible. The jet age had arrived, and along
with it came turbojet and rocket-powered
aircraft... More > capable of flying beyond the speed
of sound. To assess these aircraft, the Air
Research and Development Command
developed a series of data reduction methods,
and then compiled them in this Flight Test
Engineering Manual. It served as a standard
technical reference for the flight test
engineers, program managers, pilots and
support teams for many of the X-plane
programs of the 1950s. This reprint represents the first time in over fifty years that this book has been available, and the first time it has ever been made available to the public. it’s a unique time capsule that provides insight into the era
of “The Right Stuff”, when slide rules and
punch cards were the cutting edge, and a must-have for anyone interested in the technical aspects of flight test.< Less
The Regulus missile was a direct outgrowth of World War II. The success of Germany’s V-1 “buzz bombs” and the awesome power of the a-bomb suggested that developing a... More > submarine-launched, nuclear-armed guided missile was an imperitive.
The Chance-Vought Aircraft Company won the contract for Regulus with a bold proposal. Their missile resembled a pilotless jet aircraft, and during the test phase was equipped with landing gear, allowing the missile to be recovered rather than expended during the tests. Regulus would be radio controlled, either by a chase aircraft or by a nearby ship or submarine, and it could carry a nuclear payload. JATO boosters enabled submarine launch of the Regulus. It would be deployed aboard five submarines. They conducted the nation’s first nuclear deterrent patrols off the coast of the Soviet Union in 1959-1964. Originally printed by the U.S. Navy and Chance-Vought, this handbook was “restricted”. It was declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less

In the 90’s, B-52s flew in the Gulf War, and in the 2000’s they supported operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The B-52’s career is scheduled to continue until 2040. Originally printed by the USAF, this manual taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. Classified “Restricted”, the manual was declassified.

In the last several decades a great deal of work, both experimental and theoretical, has been performed on explosives and their effects. There did not exist in any language a satisfactory,... More > comprehensive compilation presenting a unified, self-consistent, theoretically competent treatment of this material. Also, a large number of interesting contributions, which have now been declassified and should provide valuable information, was comparatively inaccessible to the average scientist and engineer.
This Handbook presents a unified treatment of the important open literature in which is included not only articles in professional journals but also the available military reports. While the Handbook is not a comprehensive treatise on explosives, it does discuss at length topic areas that are of greatest value in an exposition of the principles of explosive behavior, and thus provides a readily accessible collection of important theoretical and experimental results on explosives and explosive effects.< Less
