Parents may be warm and nurturing with their children yet fail to meet a child's need for rules and limits. On the other hand, harsh tactics may result in compliance yet raise a child more resentful, fearful, and responsive only to force. We often refer to "discipline" searching for ways to control a child, yet along the parenting journey, true discipline is largely about becoming increasingly self-regulated as parents...

#Three-dimensional threat detector protects aircrews from threats - A three-dimensional threat detection system, designed to protect military #aircraft from attack by #weapons such as shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles, has been developed by BAE Systems.
- The 3-Dimensional Advanced Warning System ( #3DAWS ) is designed to detect a potential threat and select the best available countermeasure, depending on the nature of the danger.

Existing threat detection and missile warning systems typically use 2D information, azimuth and elevation, to assess a potential hazard. This makes identifying and confirming the threat much more difficult.

In contrast, 3DAWS incorporates a third dimension, range, allowing it to better analyse the threat, according to Cheryl Paradis, director of Threat Management Solutions at BAE Systems.

“The typical threat that they [aircraft] see in theatre are MANPADS, or man-portable surface-to-air missiles, which detect the IR signature of the aircraft,” Paradis said.

“Our customers want the ability to definitively say, there is a threat there, and that threat is coming at you, and it’s not a false alarm, its real,” she said.

The system is comprised of two components: a passive threat detection system, such as BAE Systems’ Common Missile Warning System (CMWS), which is designed to detect the ultraviolet signature of missiles; and a radio frequency-based, semi-active 3D tracker.

When the passive system detects a potential threat, it cues the 3D Tracker to trigger a radar pulse, to interrogate the object. This confirms whether the detected object poses a genuine threat or is a false alarm.

“In the world of low-altitude rotary-winged military platforms, when you are looking for signatures in the missile warning domain, there are lots of things that look like they have a UV or an IR signature, and if you are in a hostile area, you don’t want to see those and deploy countermeasures for nothing, you want to save them for when you really need them,” said Paradis.

The information is passed back to the missile warning system, which coordinates with the aircraft’s on-board systems to automatically select from a range of countermeasures, depending on the nature of the threat. These include flares and directable infrared countermeasures, which confuse an incoming missile’s guidance system to ensure it misses its target; and so-called hard-kill countermeasures, which physically counterattack the missile.

The Search for Endogenous Growth in the 21st Century

Today, society is searching for ways to explain how growth occurs in advanced economies that differ from the past. When externalities, economies of scale, multiplier effects, and spillovers become more common, then, both direct and indirect productivity effects of people, wealth, and technology transfer on each other lead to more complex growth.

The traditional growth model put forth by Robert Solow in 1957 described fairly well the second half of the 20th century for both developed and some developing nations. The simple but elegant model combined labor (N), capital (K), and technology (A) to produce GDP (Y) and its concomitant change in growth year on year. Taking into account linkages between both net investment and saving, it became feasible to calculate the rate of growth in labor input plus the rate of growth of capital input along side the rate of growth in technology as each increased total factor productivity.

The elegance of the Solow equation allowed estimation of contributions converted to growth year-on-year that predicted well events especially in sectors such as agriculture, commerce, and manufacturing, where diminishing returns were well established. The Traditional growth function (F) used was the Cobb-Douglas production function acting as a framework to estimate proportional changes in labor and capital. Together these factors contributed to three percent average annual growth over decades in advanced economies (see diagram). Though the ideas put forth in the model were not new, the way the factors combined seem to capture the growth process well, and explained growth patterns over decades in nations where data was available.

The primary characteristic of the traditional resourced-based model showed that diminishing returns set in over time as increasing marginal costs take hold. Unfortunately, more and more sectors in the new knowledge-based economy of the 21st century start to “misbehave” when it came to diminishing returns. For example, e-commerce disrupted brick-and-mortar shopping, digital media ruined print media including landlines and telephone books. Wikipedia and Google disrupted the Encyclopaedia business; e-learning altered traditional lecture methods; caregivers, office workers, truck drivers, freelancers, family members, and army personnel all felt the pinch from new forms of organisational networking that yielded constant returns.

While reshaping old into new ways of doing things is not uncommon, change in the new economy accelerates very rapidly, so growth models have to accommodate the key new factor called knowledge responsible for affecting each worker (human capital requirements), each capital investment (venture capital, IPOs, M&As, and crowd funding), and each new technology (Research and Development) in areas including robotics, genome splicing, and 3-D printing.

When knowledge becomes a free good its value does not diminish returns to investment, but rather displays constant or increasing returns. New growth theory internalises technology as part of the interaction between worker, capital, and technology, which allows the total to be greater than the sum of the parts. Because most knowledge cannot be easily withheld or excluded from others, the conditions for limitless growth prevail once the source of economic progress is founded on the distribution of ideas. These spillovers shape the chaotic nature of development and accelerate growth in clustered urban areas, for example, where complex ideas flow more fluidly including social media platforms in Silicon Valley or film making in Hollywood.

The equation for the new growth model is Y= R(N,K,A) where R represents knowledge. Hence, the model requires large amounts of knowledge to flow freely and widely to every worker (N) to gain skills of his or her liking to become an expert; knowledge to derive new investment efficiencies (K) that raise sufficient funding applied efficiently and timely; and, knowledge that accelerates more research in laboratories and think tanks (A) to trigger fresh ideas. Once these pieces of the growth puzzle fall into place, the new economy can self-reinforce growth.

Let’s say there is a modern economy where accepted policy does not invest in k-12 education or provide scholarships, stipends, or low cost loans for youth to develop skills through constant mentoring. Public research is slashed to compensate for tax cuts; people consume more than they save; infrastructure investment is reduced along with healthcare, which lower productivity. Under these conditions, there is no point in providing the new economic framework to generate increasing returns in such sectors as transport, health, education, ICT, science and technology, finance, and cyber security. This scenario has no dynamic blueprint for the future.

Now, imagine a society where knowledge flows freely and widely to everyone. Over time and with full training and mentoring, individuals in families are able to identify and convert unique personal talents into special skills that make everyone an expert at something useful. Multiplier effects derived from new ideas get applied widely. In turn, more ideas induce economies of scale across sectors to ultimately squeeze out extra value that adds to the trend line. With guidance, everyone can create knowledge and become a knowledge consumer in an office, factory, or home. In time, millions of small innovations drive economic growth slightly above the trend line when many small innovations are of high quality and put to good use.

Saving and spending on physical infrastructure and consumption will always support traditional economic growth. Likewise, once developed, social infrastructure capacity will drive greater productivity as well, and contribute beyond resource-driven additions. Eventually, the greater value of knowledge exchanged throughout economies increases human development. This suggests that the more people who know how to profit from knowledge, the more often ideas change minds and create a smarter society. Who will be the one to successfully identify the contribution of self-organised productivity to growth in the new economy?
