cognitive stimulation in the nursing interventions classification, a nursing intervention defined as promotion of awareness and comprehension of surroundings by utilization of planned stimuli.
cutaneous stimulation in the nursing interventions classification, a nursing intervention defined as stimulation of the skin and underlying tissues for the purpose of decreasing undesirable signs and symptoms such as pain, muscle spasm, or inflammation.
deep brain stimulation (DBS) patient-controlled, continuous, high-frequency electrical stimulation of a specific area of the brain by means of an implanted electrode, which is controlled by a battery implanted just below the clavicle. The electrical signals block those signals from the brain causing tremors and some other related problems such as occur in Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia.
stimulation/nurturance in the omaha system, activities that promote healthy physical and emotional development.
transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (transcutaneous neural stimulation) see transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.

When most people think of radio astronomy they imagine large parabolic antennas such as those of the Very Large Array (VLA) in Socorro, New Mexico.
Those were the days when stations included buildings, power plants, enormous steerable parabolic antennas and microwave radio links to tie the station into the national telecommunications network.
The supply subject of expressions of interest concerns SDH point-to-point radio link applications Long-Haul and Short-Haul in range 2, 4, 6L, 6U, 13, 15 and 18 GHz parabolic antennas for radio links in range 2, 4, 6L, 6U, 13, 15, 18 and 23 GHz.
As it is purpose-built for use in newly "densified" city environments where conventional microwave and typical 70-80GHz radios cannot be installed because of large, highly visible parabolic antennas, the WTM 3300 redefines the urban backhaul market.
