Fire in the Valley: The Birth and Death of the Personal Computer

Within the Nineteen Seventies, whereas their contemporaries have been protesting the pc as a device of dehumanization and oppression, a motley choice of university dropouts, hippies, and electronics enthusiasts have been engaged in whatever even more subversive. keen about the belief of having desktop strength into their very own palms, they introduced from their garages a hobbyist circulation that grew into an undefined, and eventually a social and technological revolution.

Example text

Future airborne communication systems is increasing data rates . . primarily brought on by migration towards higher RFs and the emerging dominance of optical over RF systems. Optical systems are laser-based systems, which will offer data rates two to three orders of magnitude greater than those of the best future RF systems. 1 terabits/second (Tbps) at over 80 nm range. Airborne . . Tbps lasercom systems will certainly be possible by 2025. . 66 Basically, C3I systems relinquish more autonomy to command and control UALVs, which reduces the ability of current technologies to accommodate them.

50 MANSKE Not only do the navigation systems need to be reliable, they must employ methods to detect and correct navigation errors.

Airspace synchronization methods must be reliable and permit safe and survivable operations for all airspace users. Therefore, without accurate projections available for the implementation of the foregoing airspace initiatives, the author advocates employing UALVs in formations with a manned “mother ship” airlifter that can monitor in-flight progress while also assuming responsibility for flight following and in-flight separation with other aircraft. Payload Capacity The number one factor affecting UALV design and development will be the capability to transport sufficient quantities of cargo to offset wartime airlift requirements.
