Oral-History:Herbert Weiss

Weiss Weiss was an MIT undergraduate in electrical engineering who began work on MIT’s Instrument Landing Program (ILP) in the late 1930s, spending some time working at Tuxedo Park too. He came into the MIT Rad Lab about April 1941 and started working in the receiver group under Lew Turner. Western Electric History.

Complementing the work on the Cape Cod System was an extensive radar development effort to increase response times through early-warning radars.

Lincoln Laboratory: History: SAGE Radars

Radar systems were developed for use in the air, over water, and in the Arctic. Although these radar developments were not formally part of the SAGE project, they were necessary to make the overall nation-wide air defense system work, and Lincoln Laboratory had a large role in their development. In the summer of 1952, a group of scientists, engineers, and military personnel met at Lincoln Laboratory to consider ways to improve the air defense of North America. Headed by Jerrold Zacharias, the group included Albert Hill, director of Lincoln Laboratory, Herbert Weiss and Malcolm Hubbard, among others from the Laboratory, and a number of distinguished scientists, including J.

Introduction In December 1954, construction began on the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line, an integrated chain of 63 radar and communication centres stretching 3000 miles from Western Alaska across the Canadian Arctic to Greenland.1 This predominantly-American defence project, designed to detect Russian bomber incursions into North American airspace, was the largest technological undertaking the Canadian Arctic had yet witnessed. Matthew Farish — Geography & Planning. I am a historical geographer, and much of my work has been concerned with relationships between militarization and geographical knowledge in the twentieth-century United States. This has led to three overlapping projects: 1. A history of geographical thought in the U.S. from 1940-1960.

Un projet de Charles Stankievech De loin, les phénomènes variables du Nord magnétique nous servent de guides, comme l’étoile Polaire, mais plus on se rapproche du domaine mystérieux de l’Arctique, la navigation et les communications commencent à se dérégler, forçant le nomade à faire l’expérience d’un no man’s land. Le passé de l’Arctique a été marqué nonseulement par la colonisation militaire et religieuse, par la conduite de tests dangereux et par un mépris envers un écosystème fragile, mais aussi par des projets inventifs et sensibles. Une constellation de concepts pour naviguer dans l’exposition : FRONTIÈRES : « Une frontière n’est pas une connexion, mais un intervalle de résonance », disait Marshall McLuhan en parlant de la région arctique du Canada située entre la Russie et les États-Unis.
