    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (9255 KB)

    In this centennial year of the publication of " A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" special interest attaches to James Clerk-Maxwell and his ideas. The author has found two little-known observations by Maxwell on his regard for Faraday's conceptions. Maxwell's indebtedness to Faraday, for providing the notions upon which an Electromagnetic Theory could be based, is well known (SPECTRU... View full abstract»

    United States air defenses have been given a boost by the first Backup Interceptor Control (BUIC) installation. Located at North Truro, Mass., near the tip of Cape Cod, the high-speed computerized control center will furnish air defense commanders with up-to-the-minute information on any airborne threats to the Boston air defense sector. This facility is only one of many widely dispersed semiautom... View full abstract»

    Of the myriad uses of radio, probably the least known — and in many respects the least appreciated — are those encompassed under the general heading of the Land Mobile Services. These services involve, principally, two-way base-to-mobile and mobile-to-mobile voice communication systems. Every part of our industrial, social, and economic structure has found it possible to operate more efficiently a... View full abstract»

    Radar astronomy evolved shortly after World War II when groups in Hungary and the United States independently detected radar echoes from the moon by utilizing radar equipment developed during the war. During the following ten years radar research was motivated primarily by the desire to use the moon as a passive reflector in communication systems. It was not until the middle 1950s that lunar radar... View full abstract»

    Historically, man has been a curious animal, and this has spurred his progress. He has searched for the invisible and has probed for the unknown; he has groped for the inaccessible and has struggled for the unattainable. He has disobeyed every injunction that he not eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge. But he has accepted the great challenge that if you know the truth, “the truth shall make you...

    As a result of advances in transducer materials, wave propagation technology, and device inventions, ultrasonic delay lines are now available with a large variety of delay characteristics and for operation over a wide range of frequencies that extend from the kilocycle to the microwave range. In this paper the principles of operation and characteristics of presently available designs will be revie... View full abstract»

    In recent years, manufacturing firms have shown growing concern over the problem of achieving their profit goals. The main causes of this concern are (1) the rapid increase of competition in the market place; and (2) the accelerating rate of obsolescence of newly introduced products. Firms faced with these problems or wishing to improve on their profit objectives are placing greater emphasis on ma... View full abstract»

    Extensive present demands and much greater projected future needs for high-speed error-free relaying of data have provided an additional stimulus to the communications engineer's interest in efficient transmission and processing of information-bearing signals. A topically well-unified view of current work motivated by this interest was evident in the technical program of the Symposium on Signal Tr... View full abstract»
