    The Government and industry are now recognising the strategic importance of further education for the future well-being of the country. The one area where UK education is ahead of that in Europe is in the use of information technology. Here, the author argues that if further education is to take maximum advantage of corporate status from April 1993, it will be essential to use IT to enhance the le... View full abstract»

  • Applications for solid-state high-voltage pulsers

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):113 - 120

    The author describes advances in high-voltage solid-state pulser technology which have allowed the generation of multi-kilovolt pulses with less than one tenth of a nanosecond risetime. High-speed camera design, laser pulse switching and broadband radar have benefited from the developments which have provided a range of compact pulse sources. The low jitter and high repetition rate of these bench-... View full abstract»

    The science and engineering of radar are not much more than fifty years old and recently that brief history has been the subject of much examination. Although the contributions of the major powers towards the development and use of radar are well known, very little has been published about the pioneering work done in other countries, particularly those in the southern hemisphere. The author descri... View full abstract»

  • Space and the environment

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):145 - 151

    The image of the blue-green Earth, surrounded by a sea of space, is a poignant legacy of the space age. It shows the Earth as finite, insignificant and fragile, and highlights the precarious position of its inhabitants and their environment. At a time when industrialised nations are taking an ever-increasing interest in the state of the planet, the realisation is dawning that the best vantage of t... View full abstract»

    The recent proof that man-made chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are seriously damaging the ozone layer and the suggestion that they may contribute to the global warming phenomenon, has led to the development of international regulatory controls through the Montreal Protocol. The expected tightening of these controls sill inevitably result in the virtual disappearance of these solvents over the next few ... View full abstract»
