Military Radio Nomenclature
Comprehensive article by Ray Mote from Electric Radio.
He hopes it helps you with these crazy nomenclature systems! Please send any comments or suggestions directly to Ray at email@example.com
File: C:WORDWSMILARTICLESNOMENNOMENART 6 January 1994 World War Two Nomenclature Systems by Ray Mote, K5FKT (ex-W6RIC) 6 January 1994 1
Introduction: Like many, I struggled for years to gain an understanding of the nomenclature systems in use during World War Two
Overview: Three separate nomenclature systems were in use at the beginning of the war: the Army nomenclature system, the Navy model letter/type number system, and the Navy Mark/Mod system
The Army system featured the familiar SCR, SCM, SCS designators for systems, and BC, FT, HS, etc
The Navy used a series of two and three-letter designators for systems, while using a 5-digit type number for each system component
Both of these systems appear to have been in use since World War One or earlier
In that system, there appears to have been no significant attempt to distinguish systems from components
The Joint Army-Navy Nomenclature System was implemented to cope with systems intended for multiservice use or with potential for such use, thereby ending the confusion that resulted from a single system having two radically different nomenclatures assigned by the Army and Navy (such as the IFF system the Army called the SCR-515, also known as the Navy Model ABA)

Boeing: History -- Products - Douglas C-47 Skytrain Military Transport
Aircraft history, including development and usage during and after WW-II.
Seven basic versions were built, and the aircraft was given at least 22 designations, including the AC-47D gunship, the EC-47 electronic reconnaissance aircraft, the EC-47Q antiaircraft systems evaluation aircraft and the C-53 Skytrooper
The Army Training Estate (ATE) provides the principal facilities to achieve this, and ATE Otterburn (ATE O) plays a very important part in this process, particularly for training on major artillery systems

AH-64D Apache Longbow Flight Report
First-person description of a flight and weapons test.
1 The Hughes/MDC/Boeing AH-64A Apache The AH-64D is a direct evolution of the mature and combat proven AH-64A airframe and sensor/weapons package, with a number of far reaching and fundamental systems improvements
Both pilot and gunner were provided with the IHADSS collimated helmet mounted CRT projectors, designed to deliver raster scan camera imagery and calligraphic flight, weapon aiming and systems symbology directly into the right eye
The 1991 Gulf campaign highlighted the strengths and the weaknesses of the AH-64A and its systems
The core of the baseline D model weapon system is a highly integrated digital package, building upon the Mil-Std-1553B bussing technology of established 'federated' architectures, but providing significant interlinking of onboard systems via software
Target identification algorithms in the radar's software look at the shape of possible targets, and their Doppler signatures, to identify aircraft, helicopters, SPAAGs, SAM systems, tanks, AFVs, trucks and other wheeled vehicles
Such systems are limited to engaging one target at a time, unlike the Apache Longbow which can engage many targets concurrently

Reversing the Panopticon
This article written by two architects show how Foucault's works can be of use
in parallel fields.
Thanks to USENIX and Greg Rose, Invited Talks Coordinator Reversing the Panopticon Deborah Natsios, John Young, Deborah Natsios: Visiting a town as stocked with symbolic monuments as Washington DC is a reminder of very real and provocative linkages between persuasive political systems and the civil space and edifices they generate
Architects are taught to 'read' landscape code, and this is a town of emblematic war memorials and presidential temples loaded up with tantalizing national narratives based on fact, myth and propaganda -- all of which are inextricably intertwined with theories of power and ideas about 'security', including national security, which are the concern of advanced computing systems specialists and this USENIX symposium
As readers of Cryptome and Cartome may be aware, John Young and I are not systems architects, but practitioners of architecture of the steel, glass, bricks and mortar kind -- and so, as 'legacy' architects we tend to project the implications of new technologies and their constitutive politics beyond machine and source code, games and simulations -- onto the so-called real spaces they enable: the social space of the street, the city, the national boundary, global space
