    At a fundamental level, system engineering is the process by which engineering efforts are communicated, controlled, and organized on complex projects. The engineers who perform this work well are able to work across multiple engineering and managerial disciplines. They require outstanding technical, personal, management, and communications skills and an ability, based on experience, to work in ar... View full abstract»

    System and unit designers should be aware that unique tests and considerations are required for the space qualification of any electronic unit. These invariably include a group of tests that are called electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) tests. The EMI/EMC qualification test phase is usually performed on an engineering model and for the first flight unit. An ... View full abstract»

    Various systems are under consideration to track point-of-origin of incoming small arms fire. The tendency of these systems is to use either acoustic (report or projectile fly-by) or optical (muzzle flash or tracer tracking) methods to allow signal processing to determine point of origin. The authors have developed a simple system for characterizing the muzzle flash duration of common military sma... View full abstract»
