    In this paper, we cover several of the fundamental or kev design parameters affecting the performance of a spectrum analvzer. We present a high level overview of the spectrum analyzer dynamic range and show how it can be achieved with both FFTSA and SSA. We discuss the effect of instan taneous bandwidth on system flexibility and measurement speed, we explore the importance of image rejection and a... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a a prognostic and health management system integrating microelectromechanical systems sensor with a standard microcontroller and measurement electronics for helicopters and military aircraft. In this way, prognostic sensors can be positioned closer to the stressed components and provide higher fidelity data with lower cost. An innovative design for a prognostic and health mana...

    The paper begins by looking at different techniques for implementing a variable inductor: moving cores, switched decade boxes, gyrator circuitry and saturable core reactors. We present the pros and cons of the different technologies and then the development of a saturable core reactor as the chosen technology. We present fundamental formulae used during the development of the variable inductor, te... View full abstract»

    Time is elusive. We are comfortable with the concept of time, but in many ways it defies understanding. We cannot see, hear, or touch time; we can only observe its effects. Although we are unable to grasp time with our traditional senses, we can clearly "feel" the passage of time as we watch night turn to day, the seasons change, or a child grow up. We are also aware that we can't stop or reverse ... View full abstract»
