    One of the more significant errors in the history of science occurred during the “marginal revolution” in economics near the end of the nineteenth century. Rather than explicitly recognize in basic theory that the happiness we seek to maximize in life originates within oneself, the early theorists formulated their equations as though human satisfaction resided in external things-as in ...

    Electronic devices are a help for the blind. Some electronic devices push video signals directly to the brain but the device presented in this paper uses a sensitive and ready sensorial system: the auditory system. This article presents a low cost electronic device that enables the blind to distinguish the color and distance of objects. The project was first published in the UK and that system wit...

    A simplified SDW (synchronous digital hierarchy)-based time synchronous system that does not need modification of existing SDH transmission equipment (STE) and clock supply equipment (CSE) is proposed. The system has auxiliary time synchronizing equipment attached to existing STE and CSE, where frequency and time are separately synchronized, and which enables us to partially time-synchronize an SD...

    Operational deficiencies exist in the current ability to perform high resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) targeting for precision strike missions in difficult electronic countermeasure (ECM) and anti-aircraft environments. Increasingly sophisticated enemy defenses require that fire control information be derived from highly maneuverable aircraft trajectories rather than traditional straight-... View full abstract»

    The application of manufacturability analysis to the design of mechanical parts in electronic systems improves quality, performance and reliability. Typical interest areas include equipment enclosures, transducers and high-tech microwave modules. New performance levels are feasible due to improved surface quality, stability, reduction of seam widths or the use of sophisticated materials. The stepw... View full abstract»
