Definitions for "AMS"
Automated Manifest System for air and ocean carriers.
Accession Management System. A system to manage the accessions process.
Advanced Media Systems. Sister company of NCC which collects, maintains and distributes proprietary data on all forms of local ad insertion.
Audio/Visual Multimedia Services. Specifies service requirements and defines application program interfaces (APIs) for broadcast video, videoconferencing, and multimedia traffic. AMS is being developed by the ATM Forum's Service Aspects and Applications (SAA) working group. An important debate in the SAA concerns how MPEG-2 applications will travel over ATM (asynchronous transfer mode). Early developers chose to carry MPEG-2 over ATM adaptation layer 1 (AAL 1); others found AAL 5 a more workable solution. Recently, some have suggested coming up with a new video-only AAL using the still-undefined AAL 2. At the moment, there's no consensus on which approach will become the standard.
Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer is a particle detector being constructed for the International Space Station. It will observe properties of electrons, positrons, protons, antiprotons and nuclei in high-energy radiation in space.
Austrian Money Supply. Has nothing to do with the money in Austria, but rather a method for calculating the amount of money added to an economy, the United States money supply for all examples on this site, unless otherwise noted. Eliminates the double counting of money in the M2 and M3 measurements. When the supply is increasing it is inflationary and when it is decreasing it is deflationary. See our charts of AMS and inflation on our Economic Data page.

Acute mountain sickness. This is what you may feel even if you go to a Colorado ski resort for several days: headache, fatigue, dehydration, trouble sleeping, nausea, rapid heartbeat. Of course, on the higher altitudes at Everest these symptoms can be exacerbated. They are best alleviated by proper acclimatization.
