Dynamic Optimization by Small Variation of the System Layout
Dynamic problems have been usually considered in the speed for frequency domain. However, most machines, structures or mechanisms are usually interconnected subsystems, overconstrained...

Synthetic Estimation of Development Cost of Satellite
An analysis and estimation of life cycle cost (LCC) is one of the important parts of a conceptual study or feasibility study on a satellite....

NDBC Wave Data—Current and Planned
The National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) of the National Weather Service (NWS), operates a large number of buoy and fixed-platform environmental data reporting stations in geographical areas...

A Satellite Based River Forecast System for the Nile River
The initial version of the Nile Forecasting System developed by NOAA was used operational in July, 1993. Forecast System accuracy exceeded expectations. The Nile Forecast Center is now...

Strategic Ship Routing Impacts of Temporal Coverage with Real-time Satellite Altimeter-Based Current Information
We investigate strategic ship routing impacts of temporal coverage with real-time satellite altimeter-based current information. We sample underlying daily `true' current patterns along...

A Satellite Water System Program in Snohomish County, Washington
The Snohomish County Public Utility District No. 1 (PUD) has developed a Program for management of small public water systems. The Satellite Water System Management Program (SWSMP) is...

TM Bands' Remote Measure Test for Seawater's Multi-factors—First Step Research on Remote Sensing for Bay's Self-Purificability
Marine Remote Sensing is different from Land Remote Sensing in someways, one of which is that ocean is a 3-d fluid with large changes in time and space. So the field sampling in sea-water,...

AVL's Future Holds Little Value without Integrated Data Communications for Total Mobile Resource Management
The future of automatic vehicle location (AVL) lies in broadening its definition for greater market acceptance and applicability. AVL by itself is for limited utility. To solve real-world...

The Tampa International Airport has been at the forefront of integrating Automated People Movers into airport design for more than twenty years. The need for APM technology comes from...

Beyond the Airport Terminal: People Mover Technologies at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has been on the forefront of using people mover technology since the early 1970s and the installation of the Westinghouse Satellite Transit System...

Architectural Integration of APM Systems at Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport
Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is a major airport located near Rome at Fiumicino, Italy. This location has made it a popular destination for terminating flights, as well as a...

The Virtual Mission: A Step-Wise Approach to Large Space Missions
The new Virtual Mission concept will provide NASA's Science Program with a powerful new, 'go-as-you-pay,' flexible, and resilient way of accomplishing its science observing program. The...

Assessment of a SSF Servicing Facility
Evolution options for a servicing facility at Space Station Freedom (SSF) are currently being studied. While many choices exist, one promising idea is an enclosed facility or hangar which...

Low Frequency Astronomy from Lunar Orbit
The Radio Astronomy Explorer satellite verified that the far-side of the Moon is well shielded from manmade and natural Earth-based interference at frequencies below 30 MHz. Above a few...

In-Flight Calibration of Mass Spectrometer
A new device for in-flight calibration of mass spectrometer is presented. At a ground station command the calibrator introduces a constant and reproducible amount of deuterium into the...

Importance of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Satellite to Hydrological Investigations
Rainfall over the global tropics is crucial to the global hydrological cycle and to water resources in most developing countries. Its magnitude and variations are presently poorly known....

Introduction to Remote Sensing for Irrigation and Drainage
Remote sensing is a rapidly emerging technology that has many potential applications to irrigation, drainage and hydrologic engineering. This paper, the first of four, introduces the reader...

Applications of Remote Sensing to Hydrology
This paper pulls together examples of current applications of remote sensing information to hydrology. Topics covered include rainfall, snow hydrology, soil moisture, evapotranspiration,...

Beyond Push-Button GPS
In 1993, the U.S. Air Force Space Command will complete its deployment of 24 satellites for the Global Positioning System, affording 3-dimensional positions and velocities 24 hours a day...
