Chinese-English Aviation and Space Dictionary.
Air Force Systems Command, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. Foreign Technology Div.
The Aviation and Space Dictionary is the second of a series of Chinese-English technical dictionaries under preparation by the Foreign Technology Division, United States Air Force Systems Command. The purpose of the series is to provide rapid reference tools for translators, abstracters, and research analysts concerned with scientific and technical materials from Mainland China. This dictionary contains about 28,000 terms selected from sources published in Mainland China. The terms in this dictionary also incorporate those from Aviation and Space, Volume I, compiled at the Library of Congress. They relate not only to general aviation, aeronautical engineering, rocket engines, astronavigation, etc., but also incorporate vocabulary from the basic sciences and the auxiliary technologies closely associated with aviation and space, such as, telecommunications, metallurgy, welding, and aircraft construction. An alphabetic lookup system based on the "pinyin" spelling of Modern Standard Chinese is provided, as well as a character index for users less familiar with the pinyin system. (Author/CLK)
