  • Electromechanical Energy Conversions in a Cylindrical Pinch Process

    The series circuit associated with the high current discharge (pinch effect) through a cylindrical tube filled with gas is analyzed from an energy viewpoint. The electromagnetic and mechanical energies, and their interconversions during the compression of the gas, are explicitly displayed and identified. As a consequence of the above analysis, the exact nonlinear circuit equation and appropriate initial conditions are then formulated. This equation, when coupled with the equation for the radial motion of the pinched gas, will yield an exact solution for the electromechanical interaction. View full abstract»

  • Consideration of RF Parameters for PCM Telemetry Systems

    Considerable differences of opinion have existed concerning the requirements for transmission of PCM information. Quite often, PCM has been accepted as a system inherently requiring wide RF bandwidths and correspondingly poor noise performance. This paper considers selections of RF parameters for PCM telemetry systems. It points out that if these parameters are correctly chosen, the bandwidths and sensitivity of a PCM system may be made comparable with those of other existing telemetry systems. View full abstract»

  • A Digital Computer System For Terminal-Area Air Traffic Control

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 66 - 72
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1467 KB)  

    The terminal-area air traffic control (ATC) operation is defined and a classification provided of its problem areas which demonstrates that the use of both general purpose computation and special-purpose data processing are indicated. The characteristics of the digital-computing equipment for the functions of tracking, scheduling, and guidance are described. The over-all capabilities of the system are presented, including a description of the facilities for entry, sensing, communication, and display of pertinent data. View full abstract»

    An intelligent comprehension of the rapidly expanding field of astronautics demands availability of ready reference sources of the latest terms which have a particular application in this field. The 9898th Air Reserve Squadron (R&D) of Eau Gallie, Fla., which has many active participants in the daily activities of the Air Force Missile Test Center at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., and the Atlantic Missile Range, has been especially concerned both with the problems of understanding the expanding field of astronautics, and with its responsibility of passing on information on terms which its members are now using in their daily livelihood. The problem of developing a suitable glossary of astronautic terms was made a group project, and when the squadron members examined this problem, and completed their research and discussion, their decisions were submitted to designated leaders. Then the terms were analyzed with respect to peculiarity, and presence in lists of astronautic terms already available. The final list of terms presented here is regarded to be of sufficient interest to anyone having either present or future astronautic activities. View full abstract»

  • A Super-Fast, Carrier Quieted Telemetry System for Missile Impact Instrumentation

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 76 - 81

    A fast-rising, carrier quieted telemetry system has been developed which measures, to one microsecond, the time between events during the sled test destruction of an impacting missile. Because of the short transmission range expected during sled tests, reliable carrier quieting of the receiver is obtained with transmitters of power outputs under 100 mw. High speed of response is obtainable by the use of rapid on-off keying of the carrier and the use of receivers and pulse amplifiers of sufficient bandwidth. The timing information from the missile is read from a digital chronograph instead of being obtained by analyzing taped information. View full abstract»

    A completely transistorized radio transmitter and a receiving system are described operating at 104 mc. The weight of the transmitter is under two pounds without the use of miniature parts. Design is for transmission of up to ten channels with bandwidths of 250 and 1000 cps. The channel reported has a carrier frequency of 2100 cps and was tested for EKG recording. Satisfactory calibrated records were obtained while walking and while on treadmill. View full abstract»

  • Operational Characteristics of the TLM-18 Automatic Tracking Telemetry Antenna

    A brief description of the TLM-18 antenna, including a block diagram, is followed by operational examples of its use in tracking missiles to the limits of radio line of sight. Present abilities of the antenna are discussed, and points are cited to show where these abilities exceed, in some aspects, requirements for missile tracking. It is shown that the location of the antenna and the type modulation of the missile can have adverse effects upon smooth operation. View full abstract»
