    Requirements for infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) for advanced infrared imaging systems are discussed, and an overview is given of different IRFPA architectures. Important IR detector structures, including photoconductive, photovoltaic, metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS), and Schottky barrier, are reviewed. Infrared detector materials and related crystal-growth techniques are discussed, empha... View full abstract»

    The operating requirements of superconducting cable systems are discussed, and the low-temperature dielectric properties of various gases, liquids and solids are presented. The design and testing of large cables with both helium and nitrogen cooling, using these data, is described. The prediction of cable lifetime based on small sample tests is reported. The design and test performance of large cr... View full abstract»

    It is noted that relatively few commercial practitioners have embraced Ada, chiefly because of the lack of efficient compilers and the high initial cost of using it. The results of efforts to address these concerns are summarized. Several Ada compilers targeted to different commercial microprocessors have been benchmarked. This benchmarking activity included obtaining the execution time as well as... View full abstract»

    The realization of the intelligent network concept is traced, first in the former Bell System in the early 1980s, and subsequently in the Regional Operating Companies, post divestiture. The history of common channel signaling and the introduction of 800 Service, Calling Card Service, and Private Virtual Network Service are described. The network nodes and operations systems that are the major comp... View full abstract»
