    Research investigating how electromagnetic fields (EMF) might influence biological systems has suffered from the absence of a working experimental model that defines relationships between all the physical exposure parameters required to produce a biological effect. As a result, when these variables are not controlled from one experiment to another, many experimental results cannot be replicated. R... View full abstract»

  • A safety kernel for traffic light control

    Publication Year: 1996 , Page(s): 13 - 19

    The success of kernels for enforcing security in software systems has led to proposals to use kernels for enforcing safety. This paper presents a feasibility demonstration of one particular proposal for a safety kernel via the application of traffic light control. The paper begins with the safety properties for traffic light control and specifies a kernel that maintains the safety properties. An i... View full abstract»

  • Tests on a 3 GHz ground plane Yagi

    Publication Year: 1996 , Page(s): 37 - 40

    Classical dimensioning of a ground plane Yagi antenna for 3 GHz leads to a gain which is 2-3 dB less than predicted, but this can be overcome to some extent by additional directors. The impedance matching strongly depends on the size of the reflector, which should be by a factor of 1.2 longer than given by classical theory. The shape and size of the ground plane itself can be varied considerably w... View full abstract»

  • Direct drive options for electric propulsion systems

    Publication Year: 1996 , Page(s): 20 - 24

    Power processing units (PPUs) in an electric propulsion system provide many challenging integration issues. The PPU must provide power to the electric thruster while maintaining compatibility with all of the spacecraft power and data systems. Inefficiencies in the power processor produce heat, which must be radiated to the environment in order to ensure reliable operation. Although PPU efficiencie... View full abstract»

    The United States and Russia have agreed to jointly develop a solar dynamic (SD) system for flight demonstration on the Russian orbital station, Mir, starting in late 1997. This project is funded under the International Space Station (ISS) Phase I activities which involve joint US/Russian cooperative efforts to reduce risk and enhance working relationships in preparation for the joint integration ...

    The Electric Power System (EPS) being built for the International Space Station has undergone several significant changes over the last year, as major design decisions have been made for the overall station. While the basic topology and system elements have remained the same, there are important differences in connectivity, assembly sequence, and start-up. The key drivers for these changes in arch...
