The Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) is one of three science instruments on the Spitzer Space Telescope. The IRS comprises four separate spectrograph modules covering the wavelength range from 5.3 to 38 m with spectral resolutions, R ¼ k=Ák % 90 and 600, and it was optimized to take full advantage of the very low background in the space environment. The IRS is(More)
An actuator technology program is in progress to develop miniature motors, joints and links suitable for modular placement in structures approaching the human hand in size, dexterity and weight. The end effector device that is described in this paper is a small gripper with tweezer action. Thii is a first step in a program which will evolve from basic(More)
This paper describes the use of a collaborative envisioning tool to combine the goals of disparate communities concerning the role of new sensor technologies being deployed in Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT). To do this, Cognitive Engineering intersects with the sensor development and military operations communities. Through the use of(More)
