  • The Surveyor lunar landing television system

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):54 - 61
    Cited by:  Papers (7)  |  Patents (1)

    The slow-scan television camera used in Surveyor I operates in a slow-scan mode that reduces the RF power requirements for the lunar distances involved. One 600-television-line frame is provided every 3.6 seconds in normal operation; one 200-line frame every 60.8 seconds in a second mode of operation. Upon command from earth, the camera's shutter opens, allowing light energy to reach a vidicon ima... View full abstract»

    In the past, men viewed different modes of communication, such as telegraphy and telephony, as being fundamentally different in kind, a view that has been dispelled by technological advances and especially by the communications theory of Shannon. The way is now open to achieve a universality in electrical communications systems analogous to that of the human nervous system in which different senso... View full abstract»

    This article, which follows up on the December 1965 Proceedings of the IEEE special issue on nuclear test detection, outlines the problems of underground detection and identification, offers some background in geophysics that the nonspecialist needs to get a perspective on the niceties of the engineering problems, cites some of the criteria whereby underground events are discriminated, and assesse...

  • The peculiarities of high-voltage dc power transmission

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):76 - 84

    The cost of a basic dc line is always less than that of an ac line. For submarine installations the difference is particularly pronounced; for underground cables, the difference is somewhat smaller. For overhead transmission on land, many studies show that a dc line generally costs about one third less than an ac line of the same capacity. It may be entirely justifiable, however, to compare a two-... View full abstract»
