    This short article reemphasizes the need for "social engineering" as contrasted with the prevailing competence in the field of "technical engineering." Practical steps are enumerated for the establishment of a favorable atmosphere in which human beings can effectively and happily operate in the laboratory and factory. This covers suggestions for a reorientation on the part of the "worker" as well ... View full abstract»

    Moon echoes at a frequency of about 20 Mc have been studied, mainly to obtain information on low-angle transmission through the ionosphere. Using a broadcast transmitter in its free time, with fixed aerial systems, thirty experiments were carried out in just over a year, echoes being received in twenty-four cases. Experimental results have been compared with those to be expected from an orthodox r... View full abstract»

    The magnetic amplifier is discussed in general terms as a carrier system in which there is a modulation gain and a small demodulation loss. Relations are given which show how a magnetic modulator may exhibit a gain. Some results of calculation and measurement on the type of circuit in which the modulator output consists of the even harmonics of the carrier source for dc signal input are given. It ...

    Methods used in a long-range experimental study of fading with ordinary and diversity receiving systems are discussed. Results are expressed statistically in terms of the nonusable circuit time and also in terms of the number of fades per minute below least usable level. Data for this analysis are obtained on semiautomatic equipment which measures the total time the signal spends in each of seven ... View full abstract»

    An outline is given of the study of diversity reception being carried out jointly by the Signal Corps Engineering Laboratories and Washington University, the purpose of which is to determine the characteristics, limitations, and relative merits of space, polarization, and frequency diversity systems. Results are reported on various systems including dual- and triple-spaced-antenna diversity and se... View full abstract»

    The velocity television reproduction system described in this paper uses a combination of standard video principles for image pickup and velocity-modulation methods for picture reproduction. An analysis is presented which indicates the response of the system to a general video signal. It is shown that one form of presentation imparts a three-dimensional appearance to the image. Photographs are pre... View full abstract»

    The equipment described provides a means for obtaining high-speed photographs while utilizing a continuous light source. The device may be pulsed once for "one-shot" exposures or repetitively for motion pictures or stroboscope applications. The heart of the equipment is an image converter tube such as the 1P25. Images are impressed on the photocathode and the tube is pulsed electrically for a dura... View full abstract»

    Relatively simple formulas for the design of triple- and quadruple-tuned circuits are developed for the circuit parameters necessary to produce a desired amplitude response. When using these equations, the designer is given an almost arbitrary choice of circuit Q's. An interesting condition is developed for the physical realizability of triple-tuned circuits.
