    DoD policy is to minimize unique types of Automatic Test Systems (ATS) being introduced into the DoD inventory by using designated DoD families and by encouraging the use of commercial testers that meet defined hardware and software interfaces. This policy has been incorporated into DoD 5000 2-R of 15 March 1996 (with Change 3 of 23 March 1998), which is intended to define an acquisition environme... View full abstract»

    Many Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS) use microphonic sensors mounted on fences to detect intruder attacks. Vibrations in the fence are detected and analysed to determine whether they represent an intrusion attempt. The signals from the fence are processed to filter out as many false alarms as possible. It is important that the output from the sensors is linear along the fence, to ensu... View full abstract»

    Cars powered by fuel cells have been built and tested; however, the aerospace fuel cells could not deliver high power quickly when the driver wanted to accelerate his car. Today's hybrid electric cars carry a battery that supplies the acceleration power, and the prime power source, whether an engine or fuel cell, is not stressed with sudden load peaks. Zero air pollution becomes attainable when fu... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an application of the Total Airspace and Airport Modeller (TAAM)2 tool for determining the impact of new Communications, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) ground-based and avionics technology on the efficiency of the National Airspace System (NAS). TAAM presents an opportunity to attack this problem by simulating aircraft movements using rules that mimic actual oper... View full abstract»

    Risk is the possibility of suffering loss. In a development project, the loss describes the impact to the project which could be in the form of diminished quality of the end-product, increased costs, delayed completion, or failure. This paper discusses the methods and techniques for identifying and managing the risks involved with Automatic Test Systems development View full abstract»

    Hybrid systems utilizing a zinc-air battery or a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) as the high energy density component coupled with a rechargeable battery (lead-acid or nickel-metal hydride) or electrochemical capacitor (EC) bank as the high power density component were tested under a high-pulse application load, Land Warrior (LW). The hybrid power sources successfully operated the LW cy... View full abstract»
