    A comprehensive review is made of the problem of indicating the vertical from moving bases and methods for its solution, both theoretical and practical. This is based on research work carried out at the Instrumentation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The concept of Schuler tuning for precise vertical indication is shown to be a particular application of aided-tracking feed... View full abstract»

    A method of determining position error of Doppler navigation systems is discussed which is based on the component errors and on statistical considerations. Sample calculations for four typical systems are presented. The historical behaviorial performance of the three major components of a Doppler navigation system the velocity sensor, the computer, and the heading reference are analyzed and presen...

    The situation where n stationary, accurately located, direction-finding stations fix the position of an unknown emitter by intersecting angular bearings has been previously investigated by Stansfield for the case where the angular bearings have small, normally distributed errors. The most probable location of the emitter and the surrounding confidence regions were determined. Stansfield's solution... View full abstract»

    The performance of an airborne moving-target indication (MTI) system, designed to detect moving ground targets, is shown to depend upon the video autocorrelation function of the ground return, both with and without a target. The pulse-to-pulse video autocorrelation function is derived, and from it are obtained formulas for MTI cancellation and moving-target enhancement. Results are given only for ... View full abstract»

    Some factors that influence radar target detectability on a cathode-ray tube at high ambient light levels, such as occur in fighter airplanes, have been investigated. The signals considered are those that are intensity-modulated, as in B scopes and PPI. The problem is considered to consist of three parts that should be investigated separately: 1) the ambient brightness at which the indicator shall... View full abstract»

  • Some Aspects of the Thermal Design of Electronic Equipment Operating at 300-500°C Environmental Temperature

    Publication Year: 1958 , Page(s): 220 - 224
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1680 KB)  

    Aspects of electronic part-cooling techniques applicable to 300-500°C equipments are presented. Contrary to some beliefs, the minimization of thermal resistance at these temperatures is as important as at lower temperatures. The significant shifts in the natural modes of heat transfer which occur with high-temperature electronic parts are outlined, together with some recommended methods of coolin... View full abstract»
