    Seven candidate power systems for the sensor of a space-based laser radar system are identified, and their performance and operating characteristics are briefly described. The systems are the NiCd battery, NiH/sub 2/ battery, NaS battery, LiSO/sub 2/-Cl/sub 2/ battery, LiAl-FeS/sub 2/ battery, H/sub 2//O/sub 2/ fuel cell, and an inertial flywheel generator. The systems encompass a current or proje... View full abstract»

    A hardware system and software developed to perform autonomous navigation of a land vehicle in a structured environment is described. The vehicle used for development and testing of the system was the Jeep Cherokee Mobile Robotics Testbed Vehicle. Since obstacle detection and avoidance have not yet been incorporated into the system, a structured environment is postulated that presumes that the pat... View full abstract»

    The evolution of machine-based signal processing exploits the controllable complexity properties of the available physical vehicles. Contemporary integrated electronic device-array complexity appears to have reached the critical size where the functional behavior of some bioneural array networks can be emulated directly. Such nonnumeric analog token model methods were in common use before the digi... View full abstract»
