San Francisco: Computer Security Institute, 1986. Conference print, presumably first issue thus. Stapled in upper left corner. 19,  pages. Illustrations. Presentation W-3 at the Thirteenth Annual Computer Security Conference. The author was the Senior Manager of Computer Security Management at Ernst & Whinney and was responsible for developing programs in network security and contingency planning. Prior to that he was responsible for the design of the domestic telecommunications network for The Bankers Trust Company.
AT&T. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. 20 pages plus covers. Illustrations. Chronology. Printed in about 1976 (last date in the chronology). Scuff on front cover. Built for the Transoceanic Cable Ship Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T. Fitted with 3 cable tanks, two of 55 foot diameter and one 42 foot dia,eter, all being 32 ft high, giving a storage capacity of 156,119 cubic feet or 2168 nm of 1¼ inch cable. Three smaller tanks each with a capacity of 3,000 cubic feet for storing repair cable were fitted between the main tanks. The cable laying equipment consisted of a linear cable engine in the stern and two paying out-picking up machines forward with three 10 foot diameter bow sheaves and gantry for laying rigid repeaters. In 1997 Tyco International acquired AT&T Submarine Systems, which included CS Long Lines and CS Charles L. Brown.
New York: McGraw-Hill, . Hardcover. 24 cm, 422 pages, illustrations. Name written in ink inside front board, DJ worn, torn in places, and missing small pieces. Space Communications can be defined as communications between a vehicle in outer space and Earth, using high-frequency electromagnetic radiation (radio waves). Provision for such communication is an essential requirement of any space mission. The total communication system ordinarily includes (1) command, the transmission of instructions to the spacecraft; (2) telemetry, the transmission of scientific and applications data from the spacecraft to Earth; and (3) tracking, the determination of the distance (range) from Earth to the spacecraft and its radial velocity (range-rate) toward or away from Earth by the measurement of the round-trip radio transmission time and Doppler frequency shift (magnitude and direction). A specialized but commercially important application, which is excluded from consideration here, is the communications satellite system in which the spacecraft serves solely as a relay station between remote points on Earth.
Washington, DC: GPO, 1983. wraps. 45 pages, wraps, footnotes, bibliography, yellow highlighting throughout, some creasing along edges. Louise Becker of the Congressional Research Service prepared this report which reviewed federal concerns and policy options concerning computer and information systems security.
Cambridge, MA: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Physics, 2001. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. 95,  pages. Illustrations (some in color). Cover has some wear and soiling. Mailing label on rear cover. The MIT Physics Department is one of the best places in the world for research and education in physics, ranked the number one physics department since 2002 by US News & World Report. In recent years, the Department has produced the largest numbers of undergraduate and doctoral degrees in physics of any university in the US. Research is organized into four primary research areas, pushing back the frontiers of human understanding of space and time and of matter and energy in all its forms, from the subatomic to the cosmological and from the elementary to the complex. Four Nobel Prizes awarded to faculty since 1990, and four alumni have won Nobel Prizes since 1998. The Department of Physics investigates the nature of universe in its most extreme conditions in order to discover new and exciting phenomena. MIT Physics researchers study the largest things in the universe. They study the smallest things in the universe: elementary particles or even the strings that may be the substructure of these particles. They study the hottest things in the universe. They study the coldest things in the universe. They study the most complicated things too: unusual materials like high temperature superconductors and those that are important in biology. By pushing the limits, MIT physicists have the chance to observe new general principles and to test theories of the structure and behavior of matter and energy.
