John Henry Batchelor MBE (born 1936) was an English artist and technical illustrator, particularly known for his clear and detailed cutaway illustrations of vehicles and military equipment and stamp illustrations. His work can be seen in many hundreds of late-20th-century works on armour, fighting vehicles, ships, firearms, etc..

Combing nearly 200 photographs plus eight pages of full-color illustrations, this work recounts the individual histories of several planes, including the P-47 Thunderbolt, Beetle, whose pilot mistakenly touched down at a Luftwaffe air base. And the B-17 "Miss Ouachita", shot down by Nazi fighters, but then strafed on the ground by Allied fighters to make sure it never flew under Nazi control. It was later melted down by the Luftwaffe for its aluminum alloys to be used in building other German aircraft. Often ignored or shrouded in misconceptions and surrounded by wild rumors, this intriguing sidebar to the European air war is finally examined in detail to reveal just what happened to these strangers in a strange land.

Germany: Manufacturer Gerecke+Lauer GmbH, 1986. Military Equipment. Sturdy piece of US Army combat equipment, dispenses plastic placards permitting the marking of contaminated areas: radiological, biological, and chemical. A sticker on the piece dates it from March 1986, manufactured in Germany. This equipment show some wear, scratches, soiling, etc. This marking set provides the necessary equipment to mark contaminated areas as defined by FM 3-3. Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense (CBRN defense or CBRNE defense) are protective measures taken in situations in which chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear warfare (including terrorism) hazards may be present. CBRN defense consists of CBRN passive protection, contamination avoidance and CBRN mitigation. A CBRN incident differs from a hazardous material incident in both scope (i.e., CBRN can be a mass casualty situation) and intent. CBRN incidents are responded to under the assumption that they are intentional and malicious; evidence preservation and perpetrator apprehension are of greater concern than with HAZMAT incidents. Signs used for marking contaminated areas are standard throughout NATO in color, shape, and size. A contamination marking set is available for use by U.S. and NATO forces. Container holds 20 marking flags: 20 white flags for marking nuclear contamination, 20 blue flags for marking biological contamination, and 20 yellow flags for marking chemical contamination. There is a carrying container/straps that can be adjusted for front or back wear. This equipment is indicative of post-Vietnam, pre-Gulf War tools for the NBC mission.
United States Navy. Demonstration Model. Demonstration Model--equipment. Lockheed Martin completed a 23-year production run of Mk4 reentry body assembly hardware kits used to house nuclear warheads in the Trident I C4 and Trident II D5 submarine launched ballistic missile arsenal. The Mk4 reentry system, developed jointly in the early 1970's by the Navy Strategic Systems Programs and the Department of Energy (DOE), is specifically designed to house the missile's W76 nuclear warhead. The W76 is a United States thermonuclear warhead, designed for use on the UGM-96 Trident I sea-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) and subsequently moved to the UGM-133 Trident II. The first variant, the W76 mod 0 (W76-0) was manufactured from 1978 to 1987, and was gradually replaced by the W76 mod 1 (W76-1) between 2008 and 2018, completely replacing the Mod 0 in the active stockpile. In 2018 it was announced that some Mod 1 warheads would be converted to a new W76 mod 2 (W76-2) version. The first Mod 2 warheads were deployed in late 2019. The W76-0 was fitted inside a Mk4 reentry vehicle (reentry body in US Navy parlance) while the W76-1 and -2 are fitted inside the new Mk4A reentry vehicle. This MK4/SE Surelock demonstration model may have been produced by Lockheed Martin.
Los Angeles, CA: Pacific-Sierra Research Corporation, 1984. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 70 pages (per DD Form 1473). Footnotes. Tables. Figures. References. Cover has some wear and soiling. Small tear at top of spine. This report distills from available data descriptions of typical human symptoms in reaction to prompt ionizing radiation in the dose range 75 to 4500 rads (cGy) free-in-air. The descriptions correlated symptoms which dose and time over the acute postexposure period of six weeks. their purpose is to provide an empirical base for estimating combat troop performance after a nuclear weapon attack. We divide the dose range of interest into eight subranges associated with important pathophysiological events. For each subrange, we estimate the signs and symptoms manifested by an exposed population--symptom onset, severity, duration, and incidence. The early or prodromial phase of radiation sickness begins about 2 to 4 hours after doses of 300 to 530 rads (cGy). Onset time diminishes with dose, occurring within minutes of exposure to 4500 rods (cGy) . Characteristic prodromal symptoms are nausea, vomiting, anorexia, and diarrhea. The prodromal phase lasts from several days to a matter of hours, depending on the dose. Despite differences of population characteristics, environmental conditions, and medical attention between the exposed persons represented by our data and by battlefield soldiers, we believe these symptom descriptions are relevant to combat personnel. This work was sponsored by the Defense Nuclear Agency.
New York: Doubleday [a Nan A. Talese book], 2009. Second printing [stated]. Hardcover. xiii, , 458,  pages. Frontis illustration. Illustrations. Notes. Bibliography. Index. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "To Chris, Thanks for keeping Frances Perkins's Legacy alive at the Labor Dept. Best Wishes, Kirstin Downey. Frances Perkins is no longer a household name, yet she was one of the most influential women of the twentieth century. Based on eight years of research, extensive archival materials, new documents, and exclusive access to Perkins’s family members and friends. In the mid-1990s, Downey began writing articles and columns on the American workplace, tracking employment statistics and emerging trends. Her Washington Post column, On the Job, in which workers wrote about the problems they faced at work, ran in dozens of newspapers, including the San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times, for a total weekly readership exceeding 3 million people. She learned about the infamous Triangle fire, which was witnessed by a young social worker, Frances Perkins. Downey began wondering about this little-known woman, who later rose to a position of great influence as secretary of labor under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. As FDR’s friend and ally, Perkins would help the president fight the economic ravages caused by the Great Depression and make great strides toward improving workplace conditions. A book on Perkins began to take shape in her mind. In 2000, Downey was awarded a Nieman fellowship at Harvard University. The fellowship also gave Downey the opportunity to focus full-time on her book about Frances Perkins.

Preble had to depend largely upon the good will of the Neopolitan and British governments for the use of bases at Syracuse, Malta, and Gibraltar, and for other essential aid in the matter of supplies and equipment. The benefits of these experiences were largely responsible for the subsequent naval efficiency and success in the War of 1812, and became traditional.

Albuquerque, NM: Sandia National Laboratories, 1998. Second printing [stated], Xerox type reproduction. Stapled at upper left corner. Pagination is 3-31, sheets are printed on both sides. No report cover present. References. Roadmapping Glossary. A technology roadmap is a flexible planning technique to support strategic and long-range planning, by matching short-term and long-term goals with specific technology solutions. It is a plan that applies to a new product or process and may include using technology forecasting or technology scouting to identify suitable emerging technologies. It is a technique to help manage the fuzzy front-end of innovation. It is also expected that roadmapping techniques may help companies to survive in turbulent environments and help them to plan in a more holistic way to include non-financial goals and drive towards a more sustainable development. Here roadmaps can be combined with other corporate foresight methods to facilitate systemic change. Developing a roadmap has three major uses. It helps reach a consensus about a set of needs and the technologies required to satisfy those needs, it provides a mechanism to help forecast technology developments, and it provides a framework to help plan and coordinate technology developments. It may also be used as an analysis tool to map the development and emergence from new industries. The technology roadmapping process may be conducted in three phases: preliminary activities, the development of the roadmap, and the follow-up activities phase. Because the process is too big for one model, the phases are modeled separately. In the models no different roles are made; this is because everything is done by the participants as a group.
