    The Nova laser system is a 200 terawatt laser fusion facility under construction at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Its current operational predecessor, the 30 terawatt Shiva laser, is controlled and diagnosed via a network of 50 computers. Although the highly distributed Shiva control system has proven effective and reliable, the need for more integrated process control on Nova is leading to a mor... View full abstract»

    Instrumentation for geothermal borehole measurements is being expanded beyond today's limited capabilities. Prototype logging tools have been successfully field-tested to 275°C; a high-resolution quartz pressure transducer and a gallium phosphide diode have been successfully tested. Near-term goals of current programs are to develop instrumentation for use at 275° in pressures up to ... View full abstract»

    The IEEE has proven its ability to carry on effective and complementary technical, professional, and educational programs at the same time. We can point to our record in all of these areas with a great deal of pride. However, there is always room for improvement. The following points represent my thinking on some of the issues now confronting the IEEE. View full abstract»
