    On 1st January 1990 small but significant changes were made to the UK's electrical standards to bring them more closely into line with the ideal definitions of the International System of Units (SI). Similar changes were made simultaneously by other countries resulting in much improved harmonisation of electrical measurements worldwide. Although the major impact of such changes will be felt by tho... View full abstract»

    Fibre-optic sensor technology provides a means of performing sensing functions in hostile environments, such as explosive or high electromagnetic-interference-prone areas, whilst also offering advantages in terms of convenience of application. For these reasons fibre-optic sensors are of great interest to large sections of the industrial and military community. The authors present a selection of t... View full abstract»

    FM radars represent one of the oldest and simplest-yet at the same time one of the most versatile types of radar. The author presents a tutorial review of the basic principles of FM radars and introduces a number of new ideas, including digital generation of wideband linear FM waveforms, and aperture synthesis with FM radar.<> View full abstract»

    The ability to connect only those modules required to perform a given task has both technical and commercial advantages over a system with a fixed architecture which cannot be easily expanded or updated. Although such bus standards have proliferated in the microprocessor field, a general purpose low-cost standard for digital video processing has yet to gain acceptance. The authors describe the lik...

    The yearly average number of airliners reported, worldwide, as having been involved in a mid-air collision is less than two. Air traffic control (ATC) aims to hold this rate, despite future traffic growth. Improvements in air-ground communications, e.g. by the use of selectively addressed secondary surveillance radar (SSR Mode S), make possible surveillance of the air situation by ATC computers, t...

Aims & Scope

Published from 1989-2002, the Electronics & Communication Engineering Journal aimed to inform practising professional engineers who were involved in electronics and communications by providing coverage of new developments in a serious technical, but not in an overformal or academic manner.

Topics covered included: Measurement and instrumentation; circuit design, simulation and CAD; signal and image processing, coding; microwaves, antennas and radio propagation; optoelectronics; TV and sound broadcasting; telecommunication networks; radio and satellite communications; radar, sonar and navigation systems; and electromagnetic compatibility.
