Abstract

Describes the basic principles of radio remote control, dealing specifically with safety aspects, transmitters, receivers, transmitted telegrams, the Hamming code to indicate the origination of errors, and emergency stop circuits. Concludes with the specification for DTI approval in the UK and a list of typical applications for remote control systems including cranes, ship unloaders, conveyors and ventilation fans.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to describe the development of forms of advertising on radio and internet when they were new media and propose a model of periodization through which the two histories can be understood and appreciated.

Design/methodology/approach

Two narrative histories were constructed based on data collected from numerous public and private, historical and contemporary and primary and secondary materials. The methodology of New Historicism informed the research.

Findings

When the two histories are viewed through the model, many similarities in terms of milestones and markers become apparent.

Research limitations/implications

Perhaps when the next new electronic mass medium is invented, a future researcher may look back on this model and consider whether it applies.

Practical implications

For practitioners who consider history a relevant source of knowledge and inspiration, this research offers a way of organizing and understanding the history of internet advertising.

Social implications

Today’s consumers, especially Millennials, continue to seek to avoid advertising on the internet. The use of ad blockers poses a significant threat to the business models of online content providers. This research demonstrates that resistance to advertising is nothing new and that it may be, in the end, futile.

Originality/value

The model is an original creation, based on an original view of history, and offered as a lens through which to understand this history.

Abstract

Today, information technology is fundamental to the operation of most businesses, whether they are small companies or multinational corporations. In recent times, the implementation of local and wide area networks and the installation of computing equipment in office areas has brought information technology to nearly every working environment. The result is an increasing dependence on the availability, integrity and confidentiality of information stored and processed by these systems. As the trend shifts from “fortress” style central computer facilities to distributed systems located in generally less secure office environments, the risk of disruption increases, owing to lack of physical security, support services limitations and absence of site monitoring. The net result is higher business impact coupled with greater exposure. Identifies the elements that are at risk, discusses the issues businesses face when seeking to minimize exposures, suggests some practical solutions and describes some selected events that illustrate the hazards associated with having inadequate protection.

Abstract

Describes how radio telemetry can interface with process control systems such as supervisory control and data acquisition [SCADA] and distributed control systems [DCS] greatly increasing their power and efficiency. Outlines the basis of radio telemetry, the behaviour of electromagnetic waves, frequency and wavelengths. Uses the water industry as an example of the use of a large scale and sophisticated SCADA system to provide date collection and control links over a large area. Concludes that the versatility of radio telemetry coupled with its cost‐effectiveness means that this technology can help to expand and improve communications in an increasing number of industries.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to provide a historical account of the May 1985 spread spectrum FCC decision.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper presents a case study giving a first‐person account of decision making at the FCC in 1985.

Findings

The May 1985 decision did not start as an attempt to bring specific products to market, but as part of a program to remove anachronistic technical regulations and allow a free market in innovative technology, subject only to responsible interference limits.

Research limitations/implications

Research limitations encompass typical limitations of a narrow case study of a historical event.

Practical implications

The paper guides future decision making in telecommunications policy.

Originality/value

The paper reflects the path of deregulation in the 1980s resulting in widespread product innovation in the twenty‐first century.

Abstract

Descriptions of the Super VC1O's Hydraulic, Electrical, Flying Controls, Fuel, Air Conditioning and Pressurization, Flight Systems, Radio, Electronics and Anti‐icing Systems. THE June 1962 issue of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING contained a comprehensive engineering description of the Standard VC10 and one of the articles contained in that issue dealt with systems, testing and equipment. However, the systems were dealt with comparatively briefly and it is therefore the object of this article to describe the principal systems in greater detail. The systems of the Standard and Super VC10 aircraft are essentially similar and the following description is based on British Aircraft Corporation's descriptive engineering notes.

Abstract

Over the past few years, considerable attention has been focused on the implementation and usage of quality improvement and related techniques to the service industry. Reports on an ongoing project to implement a quality maintenance system (QMS) in a military maintenance organization. Total quality management (TQM) concepts are applied as a management tool to improve the quality of maintenance services. Identifies and analyses the nature of the maintenance problem and its causes using data collected over 12 months. Finds that the low serviceability rate of vehicles needs to be improved. Indicates that TQM concepts can be applied effectively to maintenance services. Although the impact of the QMS has not been fully felt, employee participation, education and supervision surfaced as critical success factors during this stage of the implementation process.

Abstract

The Paris/Le Bourget International Air and Space Show is the world's oldest international show and is of considerable importance. It will have 548 exhibitors from 23 countries and there will be 165,000 square metres of display area — with 10,000 square metres for the out‐door static exhibits. The numbers of chalets is to be increased by 55.

Abstract

In a Northern city, which claims to have more than 12,000 Commonwealth immigrants, mostly of Asian origin—Pakistanis and Indians, an increasing number of whom have been joined by their wives and families, there was instituted in 1965 a routine examination of their children before school entry, later extended to children of immigrant origin already in the schools. This examination extended to haemoglobin estimation, tuberculin‐testing and, equally important, examination of the stools for pathogens and parasitic ova. 419 entrants were examined in the first half of 1965 and 898 pupils. Parental co‐operation must have been excellent, as parents all agreed, without exception, to the special examination, although to some extent, there might have been considered legal authority in the current School Health Service (Medical Inspection) Regulations made under the Education Act, 1944. We are not aware of any report of intestinal pathogens, but helminth infestations were reported (Archer D. M., Bamford F. N., and Lees E., Helminth Infestations in Immigrant Children, 1965, Brit. Med. J., 2, 1517), from which it appears 18·6% carried five types of worm, of which the commonest was hookworm. It would be fair to assume that helminth infestation, indicating as it does, exposure to food infections, water‐borne disease and environment generally, is an index of gastro‐intestinal infection and the presence of pathogens, including the carrier state.
