    A new navigation system and corresponding equipment components for straight steering of a convoy of snow vehicles traveling on the Antarctic plateau is described. On the polar plateau, magnetic compass readings become unreliable, and the surface of snow does not have any distinct target for determination of direction. This new system consists of one guide vehicle situated at the end of the convoy ... View full abstract»

    The Automatic Route Control System (ARCS) is a self-contained on-board system that directs the operation of a conventional motor vehicle over predetermined routes and controls activities (such as the delivery or pickup of items) performed along the route. In effect, the system continuously measures the vehicle's location coordinates, compares these with the route coordinates, and then issues audio... View full abstract»

    For effective protection of automobile occupants in high-speed collisions, passive restraints (such as airbags) must be actuated prior to impact. A 10-GHz CW homodyne bistatic radar system has been developed to permit exploration of the feasibility of such an application. System design and response to potential real and false-alarm targets and to the automotive environment are delineated. Possible... View full abstract»
