Any large piece of timber or iron long in proportion to its thickness, and prepared for use.
One of the principal horizontal timbers of a building or ship.
The width of a vessel; as, one vessel is said to have more beam than another.
The width of of a vessel at its widest point.
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.
A spool, on which is wound a number of parallel ends of singles or plied yarns, for use in weaving or similar processing operations.
The cylinder of light that comes out of the laser head. This is what makes the mark on the selected material by vaporizing it.
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.
a column of light (as from a beacon)
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.
a source of parallel rays
A unidirectional or approximately unidirectional flow of electromagnetic radiation or particles.
a group of nearly parallel lines of electromagnetic radiation
an ensemble of particles with coordinates that move in close proximity
a collection of particles traveling in an accelerator, storage ring, or transfer line.
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.
Term coined by Palm, Incorporated to describe the way data (business cards, programs, phone numbers, etc) is transmitted from one handheld computer to another via infrared ports. Based on Star Trek Classic's, "Beam me up, Scotty!"
To send forth; to emit; -- followed ordinarily by forth; as, to beam forth light.
To emit beams of light.
emit light; be bright, as of the sun or a light; "The sun shone bright that day"; "The fire beamed on their faces"
the flow of light from a lantern
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.
Main branches of antlers from which the forks grow.
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"

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"
