    A promising new microcomputer system, developed by researchers at Texas A&M University, College Station, can automatically detect and de-energize downed nigh-power cables that might otherwise thrash about for hours on the ground, creating severe safety hazards. The system is proposed for installation in utility substations, where high-voltage ¿mains¿ branch out into low-voltage ¿feeders.¿ View full abstract»

    Currently there is great Government concern that advanced technology developed and exploited by Western bloc nations might find its way to the Soviet Union and subsequently into weapons systems that could be used against those nations. For this reason the U.S. Department of Defense and the State Department want to prevent hardware, software, and information that could aid the Russians from falling into their hands.

  • Information control I: Technology transfer at issue: The academic viewpoint: Educators believe efforts to limit transfer of knowledge at the university level are likely to weaken the U.S. lead in innovation

    Confronted by increasing commercial competition from Western Europe and Japan in high-technology markets, as well as by heightened tensions in relations with the Soviet Union, the United States has taken a new and vigorous interest in controlling the flow of technology outside its borders. There is growing concern in the Federal government that the ¿leaking¿ of technical material and ideas to other nations impairs national security both by diminishing the ability of the U.S. to compete commercially and by reducing the country's edge in armaments. Yet specific efforts that have been initiated to control technology transfer in the university setting are themselves likely to weaken the U.S. position and thus do not serve national interest.

    The deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency told scientists and engineers at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on Jan. 7, 1982, that they must control the exportation of technical information voluntarily or face legislative action that will ¿slam shut¿ the door through which United States expertise is reaching military and economic adversaries.4 ¿In terms of harm to the national interest,¿ the CIA official said, ¿it makes little difference whether the data is copied from technical journals in a library or given away¿ to an agent of a foreign power.¿ View full abstract»
