    Lately one hears a great amount of criticism of the technical community because it so seldom expresses an opinion unequivocally. What the lawmakers need, we are told, is a clear cut yes or no from the experts on questions involving permitting the Concorde into the U.S., or proceeding at full speed in constructing nuclear power plants. Engineers (or scientists) must ¿speak with one voice,¿ we are... View full abstract»

    The Landsat system, formerly the Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS), comprises three major components: two spacecraft, remote sensors, and the ground data-handling system. The overall system is designed to perform three functions: the acquisition of multispectral images, the collection of data from the remotely located sensors, and the production of photographic and digital data.

    IEEE is currently experiencing some of its most serious financial challenges since the merger in 1963.
