    The latest crisis aboard Russia's space station began 25 June when an off-course robot supply ship collided with one of Mir's solar arrays, rupturing the hull and depressurizing one of the station's six modules. The cascade of equipment failures that ensued brought the 11-year-old station [figure, left] to the edge of extinction before heroic recovery and repair activities restored most of its cap...

    Despite 16 years of effort and the expenditure of billions of dollars, the US air traffic control system still sorely needs to be updated. This paper examines what has been done, and what still remains on the horizon. In particular the paper discusses High Desert Tracon, one of the 185 civilian terminal radar approach control facilities under the aegis of the FAA in the US air traffic control syst...

    Uniting the advantages of bare die and mainstream packaging, these minimal IC supports are racing to the aid of portable yet powerful products. Rigorously defined, the perimeter of such a package is no more than 1.2 times the perimeter of the die it contains, so that few other IC packages are any smaller. This reduction in size is the key driver of the popularity of the approach. But because the t... View full abstract»

Ways to detect an intrusion and assess what the intruder did must be well thought out. For the most part, they will rely upon the ability of each system on the Internet to keep a log of events. The logs are invaluable for intrusion detection and analysis, inde... View full abstract»

    Even though automation and remote control of electric power substations began as long ago as the early 1960s, the integration of intelligent electronic devices is still far from complete, especially in North America. The principal obstacle to greater interoperability is the plethora of incompatible hardware interfaces and protocols. The list includes intelligent electronic devices, computer platfo...
