  • The antiballistic missile Report on the ABM

    By the time you read these words, the United States Senate, after a spring filled with much preliminary debate, probably will have settled the latest round in the unprecedentedly acrimonious national controversy over the antiballistic missile. The Senate must decide on the Nixon Administration's request for $800 million this fiscal year with which to begin deploying an ABM system named Safeguard. ... View full abstract»

  • Against the ABM

    Viewing the ABM in the context of the dynamics of the arms race, Rathjens concludes that our deployment of it at this time may be premature and provocative. It will stimulate the Soviet Union to respond, he thinks, both offensively and defensively, just as they- and we-have responded in the past to real or imagined threats. And we will again respond to their real or anticipated response. He argues... View full abstract»

    Like Rathjens, Brennan is for negotiating with the Russians. Beyond that, their disagreements are basic. Brennan thinks that the Safeguard system, which he is in favor of seeing deployed, is insufficiently substantial. He favors the deployment of considerably more massive defensive systems that, unlike Safeguard, would be designed to save lives instead of the retaliatory missiles that hold other h...

  • The distributed-lumped-active network Its application to filtering problems

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):51 - 58

    The development of modern integrated circuit techniques has added a new and important network element to the list of those usually considered by the filter designer-the distributed RC network. This article discusses the properties of such networks and shows how they can be combined with lumped passive elements and active elements to produce a class of distributed-lumped-active (DLA) networks. Such... View full abstract»

  • The new responsibility of the engineer

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):63 - 65
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1569 KB)

    Engineers and scientists are responsible for the technical progress that has been made and they have expert knowledge of what can be done next. For this reason alone, they must take part in deciding public policy. However, the modern technical man has a further contribution to offer-the ability to understand the views of others, and to incorporate these views into the best possible group decisions...

  • The early history of electronics IV. First radiotelegraphy experiments

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):66 - 70
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    The source of the mainstream of the development of radiotelegraphy is the work of Marconi, but many other experimenters took a hand very early, notably Russia's Popov; the exact priority later became the subject of much controversy. View full abstract»

  • Pulse trimming of thin-film resistors

    Resistivity decreases can be induced in Cr-SiO films by current pulses of short duration. Precision resistance measurements between pulses permit trimming of film resistors to 0.1 percent in less than one second, provided pulse power, duration, and frequency are adjusted properly. A trimmer system that contacts several resistors through multiple probes and controls the process through a paper-tape... View full abstract»
