Storytelling and Technology and Space Based Connectivity in a Post Pandemic World with Geoff Varrall

Artech House author Geoff Varrall shares his monthly insights and RTT Technology Topic, focusing on space-based connectivity in our current climate and the importance of storytelling in technology: Writing about technology or engineering or science can be tiresome at times particularly if we are struggling to meet a deadline and life and work keep getting …

Integrating Theories to Manage Sensors with Kenneth Hintz

Artech author Kenneth Hintz gave us insight into theories of sensor management: There is no single theory of sensor management due to the heterogeneity of sensors (physical, social, cyber, database), applicable mathematics (game theory, estimation, information, statistics, probability), and users with different needs (strategic, tactical) and values (local, national, political, ethical).  What started out as …

How do inductive sensors work? A look into their technical inner life and their evolution over the last decennia with Sorin Fericean

Sorin Fericean’s book is titled Inductive Sensors for Industrial Applications and primarily deals with sensors containing inductive primary sensing elements, and that is because the “Inductive” is one of most widely used in the market and also due to the fact that the author acted mainly in the R & D, manufacturing and tests and …

The Why with Habib F. Rashvand and Ali Abedi

Artech House authors Habib Rashvand and Ali Abedi let us know a bit more about why they wrote their book, Design Solutions for Wireless Sensor Networks in Extreme Environments, and what their writing process was: What prompted you to write your book Attending IEEE International Conference on Space and Extreme Environments for several years made …

STEM in a Pandemic with Geoff Varrall

As technical authors, our job is to write and sometimes talk about technology and the ways in which other related disciplines, science, engineering and maths, make technology more efficient and effective. Our education system, professional institutions and the publishing industry place the four STEM disciplines, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, into separate silos but in …

How and Why We Write with D.V. Giri

Artech House author, D.V. Giri, who, along with Richard Hoad and Frank Sabath, wrote High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Electronic Systems, gave us insight about the bookwriting process: All civilized societies depend on electronic systems working smoothly for activities such as power distribution, banking, aviation, healthcare and transportation. We cannot imagine life without electrical power for …

How the book “Inductive Sensors for Industrial Applications” helps to develop the understanding of all sensors for industrial applications

Sorin Fericean’s book, Inductive Sensors for Industrial Applications, primarily deals with sensors containing inductive primary sensing elements.  “Inductive” is one of most widely used elements in the market (see Section 3.4) and the author acted mainly in the R & D, manufacturing and tests fields for inductive sensors for more than 25 years. A volume …

Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Vacuum Electron Devices with A.S. Gilmour, Jr.

Gilmour Brochure Written by an internationally recognized as an expert on the subject of microwave (MW) tubes, this book presents and describes the many types of microwave tubes, and despite competition from solid-state devices (those using GaN, SiC, et cetera), which continue to be used widely and find new applications in defense, communications, medical, and …
