    The trend among users and builders of automatic digital computing machines is to rely more and more on the computer itself to assist with the compilation of a computing routine. Experience has shown that use of the so-called interpretive subroutines often reduces the overall cost of acquiring a solution to a particular problem. It is also true that, disregarding problem solution time, interpretive... View full abstract»

    A new FM subcarrier discriminator which utilizes a delay line as the frequency stable element has been developed at the Naval Research Laboratory. When the equipment is used as a telemetering discriminator under field conditions, linearities within 0.25% of full scale can be readily obtained. Theoretically, the linearity is perfect and linearities within 0.1% can be obtained under controlled condi... View full abstract»

  • A temperature-stable transistor VCO

    A transistor oscillator which is stable up to 150°F has been developed for obtaining electrical measurements. A reactance-modulation technique uses time rather than gain to control the frequency shift. Reactive current of constant amplitude is applied to an L-C circuit for a controlled portion of each cycle. The portion of the cycle is controlled by a bias current injected into the modulating tran... View full abstract»

  • Telemetering and information theory

    There appears to be a strong reaction among some radio engineers that information theory, or if you prefer, communication theory, is an extremely obtuse and impractical subject useful only as an amusing pastime for mathematicians. Comments are heard much in the same vein as those once made in the aircraft industry about theoretical aerodynemics “It ain't practical, no good will come of it.” View full abstract»

  • A slope modulator for FM recording of analog data on magnetic tape

    Magnetic tape has many advantages for recording analog data such as those obtained in dynamic stress analysis, geophysical, and medical work. It is also useful as a storage medium for telemetered data, and as a “memory” for analog computers. The ability to recreate the original voltage lignai is perhaps its greatest virtue, in addition to which may be lie ted its durability, ease of storage, erasa... View full abstract»
