    Test system developers can benefit greatly from a software architecture that allows for easy interchangeability of instruments in those systems. Using open industry standard software architectures such as Virtual Instrument Software Architecture (VISA), and Interchangeable Virtual Instruments (IVI), developers are able to create systems with interchangeable test instrumentation. This paper describ... View full abstract»

    Applied research on biomedical applications of UWB radar is targeted to the identification of the possible new devices made possible by the technology, to the design and development of those devices, and to the clinical testing of the systems obtained. Applications can be divided into two main sectors according to the frequency range used. For the conventional UWB radar microwave region: cardiac b... View full abstract»

    Hydrogen has been a useful fuel in manned spacecraft, where the only exhaust from the electric power generating fuel cells is useful water. The cost of producing and delivering the hydrogen, though high, was trivial compared to its value in the missions. We have a new problem in our Earth's atmosphere - its growing content of carbon dioxide, 47% of which comes from transportation-vehicle exhausts.... View full abstract»

    President Bush has declared his desire for early deployment of a US National Missile Defense or NMD system to protect the nation against an attack of one or a dozen ICBMs carrying nuclear or, possibly, other weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). He has the support of the Secretary of Defense, sizeable groups in Congress and the public who feel strongly that the US should have a means to provide prot... View full abstract»

    The primary advantages of electron tubes over solid-state devices are that they are usually more efficient and will operate at higher temperature. Therefore, they can be smaller, tighter and still dissipate the waste heat that, unavoidably, goes along with the production of high output power. It is no accident that a one-megawatt cw microwave tube (1340 horsepower) is about the same size as a 1250... View full abstract»
