    The tourbillon is a mechanical device that was invented to improve the precision of old-fashioned pocket watches. These devices continually rotate the escapement, balance wheel, and spring to compensate for bias due to gravity. A high-quality modern mechanical watch can achieve a precision, referred to as rate error in the horological community, of 1 s per day, while a less expensive mechanical wa... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a new generation of hypersonic vehicles offers a far more effective way of launching small satellites or other vehicles into low-Earth orbit than expendable rockets. Additionally these aircraft facilitate quick response and global strike capabilities. Control of hypersonic vehicles is challenging due to the changes in the aircraft dynamics as the manuever takes the aircraft over lar... View full abstract»

    Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are ubiquitous sources of energy for portable electronic devices. Compared to alternative battery technologies, Li-ion batteries provide one of the best energy-to-weight ratios, exhibit no memory effect, and have low self-discharge when not in use. These beneficial properties, as well as decreasing costs, have established Li-ion batteries as a leading candidate for t... View full abstract»

    In the 1960s, the Kalman filter was applied to navigation for the Apollo Project, which required estimates of the trajectories of manned spacecraft going to the Moon and back. With the lives of the astronauts at stake, it was essential that the Kalman filter be proven effective and reliable before it could be used. This article is about the lead up to Kalman's work, key discoveries in the developm... View full abstract»
