Washington, DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Technology Transfer Program, 2014. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. Format 8.5 inches by 11 inches oblong. 214,  pages. Wraps. Profusely illustrated (many in color). Maps, Cover slightly worn and soiled. Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological feats in air and space. NASA technology also has been adapted for many non-aerospace uses by the private sector. NASA remains a leading force in scientific research and in stimulating public interest in aerospace exploration, as well as science and technology in general. Perhaps more importantly, the exploration of space has taught us to view Earth, ourselves, and the universe in a new way. The tremendous technical and scientific accomplishments of NASA demonstrate vividly that humans can achieve previously inconceivable feats. NASA has a long history of transferring technology to the private sector.

Santa Clara, CA: Hamilton Burr Publishing Company, 1981. Presumed First Edition/First Printing thus. Magazine. 28 cm, 108 pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Mailing label on front cover. Some wear and soiling to covers. An electronic countermeasure (ECM) is an electrical or electronic device designed to trick or deceive radar, sonar or other detection systems, like infrared (IR) or lasers. It may be used both offensively and defensively to deny targeting information to an enemy. The system may make many separate targets appear to the enemy, or make the real target appear to disappear or move about randomly.
Department of Defense, Defense Nuclear Agency, Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute, 1985. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. Various paginations (Approximately 275 pages). Illustrations. Table of Contents mis-bound with second page first. Cover has some wear and soiling. Marked For Official Use Only but given the passage of time and introduction of related information into the public domain, this limitation is understood to no longer apply. From the Introduction: Forty years after the introduction of nuclear weapons, information is still incomplete concerning the effects on man from ionizing radiation produced by those weapons. the information is important because radiation adversely affect both the combat performance effectiveness and the survivability of personnel. It is hoped that further knowledge will be gained from research such as that conducted by the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI). Research to define and manage the effects of ionizing radiation on military personnel is the primary responsibility of AFRRI. AFRRI, a unit of the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA), is the principal radiobiology research laboratory for the Department of Defense.
Livermore, CA: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, 2017. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. 28 cm, 24 pages plus covers. Wraps. Illustrations (some in color). Covers have slight wear and soiling. Science & Technology Review is currently published eight times a year to communicate, to a broad audience, the Laboratory’s scientific and technological accomplishments in support of national security and other enduring national needs. The publication’s goal is to help readers understand these accomplishments and appreciate their value to the individual citizen, the nation, and the world. LLNL was established in 1952 as the University of California Radiation Laboratory at Livermore, an offshoot of the existing UC Radiation Laboratory at Berkeley. It was intended to spur innovation and provide competition to the nuclear weapon design laboratory at Los Alamos that developed the first atomic weapons. Edward Teller and Ernest Lawrence are regarded as the co-founders of the Livermore facility.
Palo Alto, CA: Electric Power Research Institute, 2013. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 20 pages, including covers. Illustrations (most in color). Format is approximately 11 inches by 8.5 inches. The Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. or EPRI, is an American independent, nonprofit organization that conducts research and development related to the generation, delivery, and use of electricity. In November 1965, the Great Northeastern Blackout left 30 million people in the United States without electricity. It demonstrated the nation's dependence upon electricity and vulnerability to its loss. It triggered the creation of the Electric Power Research Institute. In 1972, at a hearing of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, Dr. Chauncey Starr presented his vision for the Electric Power Research Institute in serving its mandate for objective, scientific research. Chauncey Starr (1912-2007) helped pioneer commercial nuclear power, created the interdisciplinary field of risk assessment, and invented EPRI. Starr formally retired at age 65, but continued to work at EPRI for the next 30 years.
