    Three or four years from now, the chances of your working side-by-side with a female engineer will have increased dramatically. Then, women engineers will be entering the work force in numbers worthy of note and comment. Those of our male colleagues who remain convinced that a woman's place is either in the home, or in occupations more traditionally ¿feminine,¿ are duly forewarned. As for the re...

  • Military/avionics: Design decisions for a head-up display: This F-14 fighter optics retrofit case history is a prime example of analyzing and selecting design options

    In modern high-speed aircraft it is vital that primary flight control information be clearly and unobstrusively presented to the pilot. The head-up display (HUD) meets this requirement by providing relevant scales, alphanumerics, symbology, gunsight reticle, etc., superimposed on the pilot's forward field of view. With most HUD designs, the information is calligraphically presented on a high-brigh... View full abstract»

    An important aspect of electronic switching is the availability of customer services and administrative features made possible by stored program control. More than 480 features and services are now available in the Bell's No.1 ESS, and by the end of this year this system will include almost twice the number of features previously available in the most sophisticated electromechanical switching syst...

  • Power: HVDC for the long run: High-voltage de transmission may be a viable alternative to ac transmission for long-distance routes

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):37 - 44
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1475 KB)

    High-voltage d.c. transmission has proved a promising competitor to conventional extra-high-voltage a.c. transmission under several conditions-where long transmission distances from generation to load centers exist; where asynchronous ties are required; or where underground or underwater cables of considerable length are necessary. Now, developments are underway on higher-voltage overhead lines an... View full abstract»

    Nine IEEE offices, including those of the President and Executive Vice President, must be filled this fall in the Institute's annual election. This means, of course, that the postman will shortly be delivering the ballots upon which IEEE voting members can indicate their preferences. For those who are unfamiliar with IEEE procedures, we shall review the Institute's election process. View full abstract»
