Our future military force will be complex: a highly integrated mix of manned and unmanned units. These unmanned units could function individually or within a swarm. The readiness of future warfighters to work alongside and utilize these new forces depends on the creation of usable interfaces and training simulators. The difficulty is that current unmanned(More)
As unmanned units become more capable of self-control, and as their integration into our military forces increase, the role of the operator of these units is going to change. Current UAV ground control systems typically require to much of the operator’s attention per unit, and the role of the future operator will be more like that of a manager than that of(More)

This paper examines TBM vibration as a source of information about geological conditions. An EPB TBM was outfitted with accelerometers to monitor vibration during excavation of the University Link light rail tunnel project (U230) in Seattle Washington. Impact-response testing of the TBM indicated that significant signal over a wide range of frequencies(More)
The development of dry reagent systems has provided convenience to the user as well as devices that are more versatile and suitable for a variety of analyses. Most dry reagent chemistries are usually less than 7 cm2 by 300 micron thick packaged as discrete test devices. This reduces spoilage of unused reagents. Sample volumes needed for analysis are usually(More)
The term “artificial society” is used in the context of this paper to describe a discrete-event simulation model with a given set of characteristics. The model used here is an agent-based simulation in which the agents’ environment is a landscape that they can move about by following some rules defined for the model. The motivation for this work is(More)
An ever stricter legislation regulating wastewater leads to an increasing demand for biological treatment plants which are able to selectively eliminate nitrogen from wastewaters with a high influent concentration, even when operating in partial influent mode. A membrane-tube-module (MSM) reactor (Membran-Schlauch-Modul-Reaktor) was constructed and realized(More)
