    Following the U.S. Department of Defense's growing insistence upon low-cost systems that achieve high reliability with minimum support cost, the U.S. Air Force Avionics Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, has begun flight testing MICRON ¿ the newest and least expensive navigation system available for military use to date.

    In the previous issue, we recognized the growing interest of citizen groups in disconnecting themselves from society at large and its big systems. We noted that such groups seek self-sufficiency, or at least a degree of it, and in so doing expect to exploit “soft” technology. By soft technology is meant that which is not detrimental to the environment. In many cases, this is seen to equate with lo... View full abstract»

  • Power/finance cash crunch dims power prospects: Money doesn't buy what it used to, an inflationary fact that's set back the utilities' expansion programs by years

    Hard times have hit the power industry — and the electric utilities are having a difficult time hitting back. Evidence of this is everywhere. Consumer rates are soaring as most utilities and the public service commissions that regulate them engage in a frantic game of leapfrog — new rate-hike requests following hard on the heels of rate-increase approvals ... sometimes even before the approvals ar...

    Attendees at the recent Sixth International Conference on Urban Transportation, held in Pittsburgh, Pa., were greeted by some unusually barbed comments regarding the state of the U.S. rail system. Speaker Milton J. Shapp, Governor of Pennsylvania (and a cofounder of Jerrold Electronics Corp.) took note of an announcement by AMTRAK, the National Railroad Passenger Corp., of the acquisition of train...

  • Technology ferrofluids: Liquid magnetics: A space-age research spin-off finds its way out of the laboratory and into a host of lubricating and damping applications

    Ferrofluids challenge the traditional discipline of electrical and electronics engineering. They combine electromagnetic phenomena with the physical and chemical phenomena of a fluid. They challenge the engineer to conceive of a material that acts as a magnetic solid at the same time it acts as a liquid. View full abstract»

  • Careers equations for managers: Management "by the numbers" has been denigrated, yet the author, with tongue only partially in cheek, raises provocative possibilities

    We engineers are inclined to try to reduce all problems to their essentials. This includes, wherever possible, putting our observations in the form of equations, inequalities, differential calculus, and sets. But will this technique work as we don our management hats? I'm inclined to think that, in some important cases, it will, and that, furthermore, it helps us to understand some normally hidden... View full abstract»
