Potential Uses of Military-Related Resources for Protection of the Environment

image of Potential Uses of Military-Related Resources for Protection of the Environment
The world is just beginning to grapple with the full implications of making military-related resources serve non-military purposes. This publication examines the unique potential of worldwide military establishments to augment the civilian capabilities of the international community in meeting the environmental challenge. It concentrates mainly on the possible environmental uses through reorientation, redeployment or redirection of resources currently used by the military or those which may be released through arms reduction.

Sensor fundamentals and applications

Sensors are the physical transducers by means of which specific environmental attributes are converted into information, usually in the form of a quantitative, electronic signals. The principal indices of sensor performance are its spatial resolution, or accuracy, and its ability to discriminate between the object's signal and random variations in the object, a threshold called the signal-tonoise ratio (SNR). Overall performance is a compromise between resolution and area covered.
