Abstract
ELECTRONIC MODULES THAT CAN BE FAULTED BY REMOTELY CONTROLLED SWITCHING ARE POTENTIALLY VALUABLE AIDS IN THE TRAINING OF OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL IN THE RECOGNITION AND DIAGNOSIS OF FAILURES ANDPERFORMANCE DEGRADATION IN COMPLEX ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS. OAS, INC., PROPOSES AN INVESTIGATION OF LOW-LEVEL MICROWAVE AND SUPERSONIC SWITCHING DEVICES THAT MIGHT BE ATTACHED TO AN ELECTRONIC MODULE TO BEFAULTED BY AN INSTRUCTOR OPERATING A REMOTE MICROWAVE OR SUPERSONIC TRANSMITTER. ALTERNATIVELY, A MINIATURE TIMER THAT ALLOWS ARBITRARY SWITCH CLOSING TIMES TO BE PROGRAMMED WITHIN IT WILL BE EVALUATED AND COMPARED WITH THE REMOTE SWITCHING DEVICES. THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL INVOLVE A SEARCH FOR SUITABLE COMPONENTS, MINIATURIZED DESIGNS OF CHOSEN COMPONENTS, AN EVALUATION OF EXPECTED PERFORMANCE, AND TEST ING OF COMPONENTS WHOSE PERFORMANCE CANNOT BE PREDICTED.
