  • At the crossroads in air-traffic control I. The view from the ground - the congested airports; the Common IFR Room; present and future automated systems; plans of the FAA; problems of the air-traffic controllers

    The ever-increasing volume of aircraft operations of all types (commercial, private, and military) is taxing present terminal and en route control systems and equipment-and air-traffic controllers-to the outer limits of their respective handling capacities and endurance. Thus the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been obliged to formulate detailed plans to meet the challenge of phenomenal ... View full abstract»

  • A modernized electric network for the future needs of Hamburg

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):41 - 46
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2651 KB)

    Among the ``city-states'' in the Federal Republic of Germany, the plight of Hamburg-with respect to its electrical needs-is, if not typical, then representative of conditions that exist in other cities in the republic. To meet the growing electric needs of the populace, a Hamburg electric utility has devised a system that will take full advantage of existing services incorporated into a new ``broa...

  • Coding and its application in space communications

    Between 1948-when Shannon first proposed his basic theorems on information theory-and the start of the space age, little practical application developed from the lessons of coding theory. This article presents an overview of the Shannon theorem, interesting practical codes, and their application to the space channel. It turns out that a simple encoder in combination with a decoder of modest comple... View full abstract»

    Observers have found that the ``learning-curve'' phenomenon occurs in many complex situations and is not confined to the human learning of repetitive manual skills. If experience improves performance, it should follow that the company that has produced the most widgets will be the most efficient widget producer. This implies that market share is vital in determining potential profitability and tha... View full abstract»

  • Desensitization of dc power supplies to momentary ac power fluctuations

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):69 - 73
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2991 KB)

    At the present time, dc power supplies generally are not designed to maintain continuous and steady voltages during momentary disturbances in their ac power-transmission-supply line. Yet, during lightning storms, or through some line fault, electrical disturbances can occur within transmission lines that tend to depress dc power-supply voltages. There are methods for desensitizing the dc power sup... View full abstract»
