Definitions for "Beam "
Keywords:  widest, girder, canoe, breadth, joist

Keywords:  spool, cylinder, flange, wound, warp
The bar of a balance, from the ends of which the scales are suspended.
A cylinder of wood, making part of a loom, on which weavers wind the warp before weaving; also, the cylinder on which the cloth is rolled, as it is woven; one being called the fore beam, the other the back beam.

This is essentially the signal or group of signals that is sent from the satellite to the surface of the Earth. This surface, defined by the beam, is the satellite 'footprint', ie the area on Earth where the beam can be captured and used. No one satellite can transmit a beam to the entire Earth, though theoretically three equally spaced satellites in a network could cover the entire Earth.
satellite transmission pattern. It may be wide, narrow or spot.
A portion of the satellite footprint at L-band and S-band. The satellite footprint is divided into 16 beams.
send and receiving data using infrared light.
describes the use of infrared to transfer data from one handheld to another. With appropriate software, beaming can also be used to send a document from the handheld to an infrared-capable printer.
To send software programs or data via an infrared- or radio-wave transmission from one PDA to another, or from a PDA to a desktop computer or printer.
Keywords:  antler, beos, stag, deer, stem
Beam is an open-source mail-client for BeOS that aims to be fast, stable and feature-complete. The main idea is to produce a full-featured graphical mail-client for BeOS that provides all modern mail protocols/standards and is fun to use.
The principal stem or horn of a stag or other deer, which bears the antlers, or branches.
The main stem of an antler.
A ray or collection of parallel rays emitted from the sun or other luminous body; as, a beam of light, or of heat.
A ray; a gleam; as, a beam of comfort.
The directed radio waves emanating from a transponder. Typically refers to aggregates of these rays, such as a "Latin American" coverage beam.
smile radiantly; express joy through one's facial expression
express with a beaming face or smile; "he beamed his approval"
experience a feeling of well-being or happiness, as from good health or an intense emotion; "She was beaming with joy"; "Her face radiated with happiness"
A unidirectional or approximately unidirectional flow of electromagnetic radiation or particles.

The part of the plow by which it is pulled or drawn.
Beam and it's follow-on I-Beam are sets of programs to produce coverage charts of radio sources. It has been used for RADAR, DME, VOR and various communications sources specific to aviation. However, it is also valid for cell phone, TV and radio towers
1. In radio interferometry, the inverse Fourier transform of the u-v sampling distribution, or of a weighted u-v sampling distribution, possibly convolved with a gridding convolution function: the idealized response to a point, or unresolved, radio source. 2. A numerical approximation to 1. 3. A digitized version of 2, sampled on a regular grid (usually regarded as an image). 4. Synonymous with point spread function. 5. (Occasionally) as above, but taking into account instrumental effects, so that the beam depends on position in the sky. See dirty image. Occasionally, any one of the above, other than 5, is termed the synthesized beam.
broadcast over the airwaves, as in radio or television; "We cannot air this X-rated song"
brain electrical activity mapping. A computerized interpretation of brain currents incorporating (usually) sound and visual evoked potentials to produce a colored map of brain electrical functioning.
Brain electrical activity mapping. A noninvasive diagnostic technique used to detect certain kinds of epilepsy, head injuries, dyslexia, brain tumors, dementia, and other brain diseases. This procedure utilizes a computer to convert data from brain electrical potentials into colored topographical maps of the brain which are then automatically compared with those of an appropriate control group to indicate the degree of deviation from the norm.
