    What were the origins of radio? Who first suspected or believed that there were electromagnetic waves? Who first demonstrated that such waves could actually be brought into existence? Who was first to show that it was possible to communicate using these waves? The author shows that in trying to find out, the answers to those questions are far from clear cut View full abstract»

  • If only we'd known sooner [innovation projects, change management]

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):38 - 40

    Developing a new product may involve entering new markets, acquiring new distribution channels, or developing new customer service capabilities. Identifying these activities and interpreting how these activities relate to the organization's strategic identity are two separate problems. Problems easily confused by innovation managers. New product development requires, first, analysis of new markets... View full abstract»

    Cable TV network's ability to provide fast data transmission using cable modems is receiving much attention these days. A cable modem (or cable TV modem) is a device that connects your computer to the cable TV network. The cable television (CATV) industry was born in 1948 as a way to provide TV reception to remote viewers. However, CATV's marriage to television basically obscured the fact that it ...

    The evolution of holographic optical memories has followed a path not altogether different from holography itself. P.J. van Heerden is widely credited for being the first to elucidate the principles behind holographic data storage in a 1963 paper. The science and engineering of such a storage paradigm were heavily pursued thereafter. This resulted in many novel holographic multiplexing techniques ... View full abstract»

  • FIR and IIR digital filters

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):28 - 31

    A digital filter is a basic building block in any digital signal processing (DSP) system. The simulation results presented show how finite bit precisions can affect the performance of a digital filter. IIR filters are shown to be even more susceptible to finite bit precision effects than FIR filters. However, these effects can be reduced using the IIR filter with a cascaded structure View full abstract»

    If we view the engineering design activity as a process, and we want to improve that process, then we need a way to measure its results and the trend of those results over time. At the Aeronutronic Division of Lockheed Martin Corporation, we developed and used a set of engineering performance metrics which helped guide our productivity and quality improvement efforts in the Mechanical and Electron...

    Explosives are an integrated part of our technical infrastructure. They do not need to be used in large quantities to produce their desired effects. Explosives can be applied in small quantities to produce useful mechanical or chemical stimuli. To use an explosive in an application, the explosive needs some form of external stimulation. This stimulation can come in the form of a mechanical force, ... View full abstract»
