2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Upon the dedication of a new Capitol building in 1879, the city of Lansing was just beginning to emerge from the swampy wilderness of its recent past. As industry began to take root along the banks of the Grand River, Ransom Eli Olds brought his father's motor shop to national prominence with advancements in gasoline and steam engines, and then horseless carriages. By the early 20th century, Oldsmobile became the world's first mass producer of automobiles and Olds had moved on to found a second car company, making Lansing the first Auto City. Through these efforts, Olds rose to become one of the nation's greatest industrialists and entrepreneurs. Using primary documents and historical images, this book traces the industrial history of the Capital City within the context of one of the 20th century's greatest entrepreneurs, R.E. Olds

Study of broadband search antennas for ecm applications by Julius Kane( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report two long-slot antennas, both of which efficiently utilize their apertures over an extended frequency range of at least 10:1, are described. One antenna utilizes a tapered feed which performs the dual function of acting as feed and enclosure. This results in broadband operation with a simple structure having a large configuration. The other makes use of a multiple-point feed and a novel backing structure. This latter antenna is considerably smaller in size than the former, although a more complex backing cavity structure is required. Experimental data are presented which demonstrate the wid-band characteristics of a long-slot antenna excited by either a tapered-feed or a multiple feed structure. The analysis and design of a novel wide-band backing cavity for the long-slot antenna is also discussed
