    The efficacy of employing battery condition management equipment and procedures is demonstrated on the solid basis of field experience in which the host batteries were found either to be flawed or operated in ways that would compromise reliability. Examples found using such equipment and reported in this paper include a cell whose voltage vacillated daily while on float, post/strap joints whose ac... View full abstract»

    In the present work it is presented an implementation of two specific functions which are going to be of growing importance in Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS). Namely the two functions are Routing and Guidance. Routing provides a means to suggest to the airport ground control a best path from any given point on the airfield to any other given point according to a n... View full abstract»
