Renewing U.S. telecommunications research ( )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The modern telecommunications infrastructure made possible by research performed over the last several decades is an essential element of the U.S. economy. The U.S. position as a leader in telecommunications technology, however, is at risk because of the recent decline in domestic support of long-term, fundamental telecommunications research. To help understand this challenge, the National Science Foundation asked the NRC to assess the state of telecommunications research in the United States and recommend ways to halt the research decline. This report provides an examination of telecommunications research support levels, focus, and time horizon in industry, an assessment of university telecommunications research, and the implications of these findings on the health of the sector. Finally, it presents recommendations for enhancing U.S. telecommunications research efforts

Creating a DOD strategic acquisition platform report of the Defense Science Board by United States ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The United States must be prepared to respond to a broad set of national security missions, both at home and abroad. Yet many deficiencies exist in defense capabilities needed to support these missions - systems are aging and technologies are becoming obsolete. The interoperability of communication systems continues to be a major concern on the battlefield. A robust acquisition process is critical to sustain a strong arsenal of effective weapon systems. This report offers recommendations for rebuilding the defense acquisition process, drawn from numerous reports over the past few years prepared by the Defense Science Board, an advisory body to the Secretary of Defense. We believe this report offers useful insight for the Secretary of Defense and his transition team to address critical acquisition challenges

The dilemma of broadband access by R. W Lucky ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dr. Robert Lucky discusses the current state of the telecommunications industry and its impact on the future technological advances. He tries to make sense of the industry in the 1990's, contemplating the ideal situation of running optical fiber to every home. The dilemma is that in order to achieve broadband access, you need a fiber to your home ... but you can't have one. Just when the industry seemed to have a reasonably evolutionary path to wiring the nation's homes, it was caught up in the turbulence of meag-deals, the expansion of the Internet, the waning of interest on video-on-demand, and battle cry of competition. According to Lucky, economics, the market, and the technological intertwine in a patchwork quilt of access alternatives that no longer seem to have a direction or theme
