    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (4991 KB)  

    The richness of the electronic dowry brought to the IEEE by AIEE may come as a surprise to some readers. The extent of AIEE's participation in the electronics field is indicated by means of a brief historical summary of electrical communication from 1884 to 1930, plus a tabulation of recent committees and subcommittees, papers published, and conferences sponsored View full abstract»

  • Infrared for circuit check-out

    Page(s): 21 - 25
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (930 KB)  

    All objects with temperatures above absolute zero emit electromagnetic radiation, most of which falls in the infrared region of 0.1 to 100 microns. An energized resistive circuit is a source of thermal infrared radiation because its power is dissipated as heat. Consequently, any change in the normal temperature of circuit components or over-all infrared pattern should indicate changes in circuit operating conditions. A new method of fault isolation and prediction is described that relates these infrared changes to the circuitry View full abstract»

    The increasing use of the electrode catheter in the cardiology laboratory has led to investigations of the electric shock hazard associated with this instrument for the purpose of establishing necessary precautions. These hazards may be markedly reduced by proper equipment design, coupled with proper maintenance, grounding, and laboratory procedures View full abstract»

    The problems encountered in a typical petroleum or chemical tank farm create the need for telemetry of storage tank data. Design criteria are presented for a reliable solid-state digital telemetering system which is also applicable to power distribution systems. Time-sharing techniques are used to provide a conservatively designed single system capable of continuous alarm scanning, function control, and data logging. The use of proved digital techniques makes operation with a digital computer practical View full abstract»

    Advances in laser technology are coming about so rapidly these days that it is difficult to report the current developments before they are old news. In last month's issue (page 978) lasers powered directly by electric currents were discussed. Since that time, the following announcements have been made. View full abstract»

  • Adaptive autopilot helps X-15 set new record

    During the past summer, U.S. Air Force Major Robert White became the first man to fly a winged aircraft into outer space by piloting the X-15 rocket ship to an unofficial altitude of 310,000 feet, 58.7 miles above the desert at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. Maximum speed of 3,784 mph was achieved at 156,000 feet. The X-15 was able to exceed its design altitude of 250,000 feet because of a self-adaptive flight control system developed by the Aeronautical Division of Minneapolis-Honeywell to steer the ship through the dangerous regions at the fringe of the earth's atmosphere where conventional controls are inadequate.

  • Microsurgery training benefits from use of smallest television camera

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1022 KB)  

    As a surgeon performed a critical operation recently, a group of reporters, seated in a lounge two floors above the operating floor, watched the operation. An overall view of the room was provided on one television screen but this was not a typical closed-circuit TV demonstration. Two other large screen monitors showed what the surgeon himself saw through the operation microscope as he performed delicate surgery inside the patient's middle ear. (The operation is known as a stapedectomy.) As he worked, he explained every move, answering questions through a two-way microphone hookup, just as he might to a class of doctors.

    The world's first commercial communitywide electronic dial office, which began operation recently at Etna, N.Y., is in effect a computer designed to perform the registration and transmission functions of a telephone system. Produced by General Dynamics/Telecommunication of Rochester, N.Y., the community dial office will serve customers of the Dry den Telephone Company, a subsidiary of the Independent Telephone Corp.

    An experimental classroom has been designed in an unusual shape to give maximum viewing angles for projection screens and with its lighting, acoustics, and color scheme all planned to center attention on the instructor and the display areas. The space permits use of 2-by-4 slides, 16mm films, overhead projector, audio tapes, television, demonstration apparatus, models, double projection screen (allowing simultaneous showing of two images for comparative analysis); and a control system for the lighting.

    The first firing of a Sergeant ballistic missile by a tactical unit of the U.S. Army was successfully conducted recently at the White Sands Missile Range, N.M. Fired from its mobile erector launcher, the Sergeant sped out of sight in seconds, leaving only a cloud of dust and a snowy trail of vapor. View full abstract»

  • Selective power of human ear studied

    People at noisy parties are often able to catch the sound of their own names or mention of a topic that interests them from across a room in the midst of conversational din. In the world of science, this is known as the “cocktail party effect.” At Stanford Research Institute, a psychologist interested in this strange phenomenon has completed exploratory research making use of it in a way that could drastically affect communications systems. Dr. Maurice Rappaport believes that the ability to “zero in” on a key phrase or conversation amid the tinkle of glasses and laughter is possibly the stereo effect given by two ears and the human brain's capability for selectively listening to one of several simultaneous messages.
