Advances in electronics over the past decade have produced major improvements in the power and flexibility of personal computer systems. Unfortunately current avionics systems for space applications typically have not leveraged these COTS advantages. Recently, there has been a trend toward utilization of commercial bus interconnects, primarily VME and PCI.(More)
As with every major social revolution, the advent of the digital age was accompanied by growing pains. Many of the methods used in the first few decades were ultimately rejected for better and more proven approaches. Complex systems such as aircraft avionics or military weapons control systems are no longer the purview of the omniscient hardware guru or(More)
The latest NASA initiative for Human Space, namely the Space Exploration Vision, which encompasses Project Constellation, provides new opportunities for system implementation. The second wave of development after Crew Exploration Vehicle and Crew Launch Vehicle development, and following Shuttle retirement, will be development of lunar base concepts and(More)
This paper reviews recent literature on the roles of practitioners employed to support teaching and learning within institutions of higher education. These practitioners are expected to support the adoption of Internet technologies and quality teaching and learning outcomes, primarily through instructional design and academic development services. The(More)
Existing notations for modelling information and knowledge on business processes are arbitrarily assigned to intuitively meaningless symbols. These symbolic notations are bias towards the needs of technically engineered stakeholders. A hypothesis that a proposed set of notations, Norm Process Chart, are semantically clearer than these existing notations,(More)
