    The Flight Dynamics Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is planning to use a microprocessor for controlling the flight and sequence of operations of ejection seats used in combat aircraft. The microprocessor would control the seat's direction and attitude once ejected by adjusting its rocket thrust vector for a variety of flight situations. The typical ejection seat design today e...

    It appears likely that the main technical barriers to automation of most medium-batch manufacturing will be overcome in this decade. Rapid progress in the development of computer-aided manufacturing in all industrialized countries almost certainly will lead to the construction of a prototype fully automated factory sometime in the mid-to-late 1980s. However, it remains unclear to what extent indus... View full abstract»
