    The problems of the development of short-range navigation aids as integrated multifunctional systems for the near future while implementing them in poorly equipped regions, ice-breaker fleets, and on remote oil platforms are discussed. Conclusions are drawn about the reasonability of utilization for those purposes of various modifications of the existing integrated short-range navigation systems. ... View full abstract»

    Around 1890, the mining industry of Telluride, Colorado, was going broke because of the high cost of fuel for steam power, and alternative sources of power had to be found. The author describes the transition that was made to AC power. A 133 Hz, 3000 V generator was installed with a 6 foot Pelton water wheel at Ames, Colorado, that transmitted power for a distance of 2.65 miles. This was followed ... View full abstract»

    A conceptual system design is described for a satellite-based aeronautical safety communications system capable of serving both general aviation (GA) aircraft and commercial aviation (CA) aircraft in the contiguous US (CONUS) in the mid-1990s. It is shown how the large system capacity that is required can be obtained using a 15-m deployable antenna onboard a high-power commercial communications sa... View full abstract»
