Satellites
In context of spaceflight , a SATELLITE is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit . Such objects are sometimes called ARTIFICIAL SATELLITES to distinguish them from natural satellites such as Earth's Moon
Moon
. In 1957 the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
launched the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1
Sputnik 1
. Since then, about 6,600 satellites from more than 40 countries have been launched. According to a 2013 estimate, 3,600 remained in orbit. Of those, about 1,000 were operational; while the rest have lived out their useful lives and became space debris . Approximately 500 operational satellites are in low-Earth orbit , 50 are in medium-Earth orbit (at 20,000 km), and the rest are in geostationary orbit (at 36,000 km). A few large satellites have been launched in parts and assembled in orbit

Spacecraft
A SPACECRAFT is a vehicle or machine designed to fly in outer space . Spacecraft
Spacecraft
are used for a variety of purposes, including communications , earth observation , meteorology , navigation , space colonization , planetary exploration , and transportation of humans and cargo . On a sub-orbital spaceflight , a spacecraft enters space and then returns to the surface, without having gone into an orbit . For orbital spaceflights , spacecraft enter closed orbits around the Earth or around other celestial bodies . Spacecraft
Spacecraft
used for human spaceflight carry people on board as crew or passengers from start or on orbit (space stations ) only, whereas those used for robotic space missions operate either autonomously or telerobotically

Information And Communications Technology
INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT) is an extended term for information technology (IT) which stresses the role of unified communications . The term ICT is also used to refer to the convergence of audio-visual and telephone networks with computer networks through a single cabling or link system. There are large economic incentives (huge cost savings due to elimination of the telephone network) to merge the telephone network with the computer network system using a single unified system of cabling, signal distribution and management. However, ICT has no universal definition, as "the concepts, methods and applications involved in ICT are constantly evolving on an almost daily basis". The broadness of ICT covers any product that will store, retrieve, manipulate, transmit or receive information electronically in a digital form, e.g. personal computers, digital television, email, robots

Energy Management System
An ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EMS) is a system of computer-aided tools used by operators of electric utility grids to monitor, control, and optimize the performance of the generation and/or transmission system . The computer technology is also referred to as SCADA/EMS or EMS/SCADA. In these respects, the terminology EMS then excludes the monitoring and control functions, but more specifically refers to the collective suite of power network applications and to the generation control and scheduling applications. Manufacturers of EMS also commonly supply a corresponding dispatcher training simulator (DTS). This related technology makes use of components of SCADA and EMS as a training tool for control centre operators

Sensor
In the broadest definition, a SENSOR is an electronic component , module, or subsystem whose purpose is to detect events or changes in its environment and send the information to other electronics, frequently a computer processor . A sensor is always used with other electronics, whether as simple as a light or as complex as a computer. Sensors are used in everyday objects such as touch-sensitive elevator buttons (tactile sensor ) and lamps which dim or brighten by touching the base, besides innumerable applications of which most people are never aware. With advances in micromachinery and easy-to-use microcontroller platforms, the uses of sensors have expanded beyond the traditional fields of temperature, pressure or flow measurement, for example into MARG sensors

Electronic Warfare
ELECTRONIC WARFARE (EW) is any action involving the use of the electromagnetic spectrum or directed energy to control the spectrum, attack of an enemy, or impede enemy assaults via the spectrum. The purpose of electronic warfare is to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum. EW can be applied from air, sea, land, and space by manned and unmanned systems, and can target humans, communications, radar , or other assets

Armoured Fighting Vehicle
An ARMOURED FIGHTING VEHICLE (AFV) is a combat vehicle , protected by strong armour and generally armed with weapons , which combines operational mobility , tactical offensive , and defensive capabilities. AFVs can be wheeled or tracked. It is not uncommon for AFVs to be simply referred to as "armour". The concept of a highly mobile and protected fighting unit has been around for centuries; from Hannibal
Hannibal
's war elephants to Leonardo 's war machines, military strategists endeavoured to maximize the mobility and survivability of their soldiers. Armoured fighting vehicles are classified according to their intended role on the battlefield and characteristics. This classification is not absolute; at different times different countries will classify the same vehicle in different roles. For example, armoured personnel carriers were generally replaced by infantry fighting vehicles in a similar role, but the latter has some capabilities lacking in the former

Combat Aircraft
A MILITARY AIRCRAFT is any fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft that is operated by a legal or insurrectionary armed service of any type. Military aircraft can be either combat or non-combat: * Combat aircraft are designed to destroy enemy equipment using their own aircraft ordnance . Combat aircraft are normally developed and procured only by military forces . * Non-combat aircraft are not designed for combat as their primary function, but may carry weapons for self-defense

Radar
RADAR is an object-detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects. It can be used to detect aircraft , ships , spacecraft , guided missiles , motor vehicles , weather formations , and terrain . A radar system consists of a transmitter producing electromagnetic waves in the radio or microwaves domain, a transmitting antenna , a receiving antenna (often the same antenna is used for transmitting and receiving) and a receiver and processor to determine properties of the object(s). Radio waves (pulsed or continuous) from the transmitter reflect off the object and return to the receiver, giving information about the object's location and speed. Radar
Radar
was developed secretly for military use by several nations in the period before and during World War II

Earnings Before Interest And Taxes
In accounting and finance, EARNINGS BEFORE INTEREST AND TAXES (EBIT), is a measure of a firm's profit that includes all expenses except interest and income tax expenses. It is the difference between operating revenues and operating expenses. When a firm does not have non-operating income , OPERATING INCOME is sometimes used as a synonym for EBIT and operating profit . EBIT = revenue – operating expenses (OPEX) Operating income = revenue – operating expenses A professional investor contemplating a change to the capital structure of a firm (e.g., through a leveraged buyout ) first evaluates a firm's fundamental earnings potential (reflected by earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA ) and EBIT), and then determines the optimal use of debt vs. equity. To calculate EBIT, expenses (e.g. the cost of goods sold , selling and administrative expenses) are subtracted from revenues
