Commentary and Opinions

Meeting the performance needs of the next generation of radar systems that will be deployed by the military is spurring the development of more efficient and sensitive hardware components to go along with the rapid advances in signal processing techniques and bandwidth.

The military uses radar for many purposes, including guiding missiles to targets, directing the firing of weapon systems, and providing long-distance surveillance and navigation information.

Car theft is a fruitful field of opportunity for today’s criminals as they seek new and innovative ways for gaining quick profits. Recent reports indicate that prior to committing theft, organized car-theft gangs are doing their homework. They are targeting specific car rental facilities, conducting exhaustive site-studies of the facilities to identify vulnerabilities that will make their job easier.

Foreign illegal fishing in the Gulf, mostly by Mexican crew in boats called lanchas, is a persistent -- and alarming -- problem, say authorities from Gulf Coast states and the federal government.

The urgency of the issue brought together a diverse group of stakeholders, including commercial and recreational fishermen, state and federal fisheries enforcers and elected officials, August 18 at Texas A&M University in Galveston for a summit on how best to combat illegal fishing. The event was hosted by the Gulf Coast Leadership Conference.

“We are entering an era in which unmanned vehicles of all kinds will take on greater importance in space, on land, in the air and at sea” -- President George W. Bush’s address to the Citadel, Dec. 2001.
