      Crosstalk 6. Electronic Warfare during World War II

      5:30 pmConference Room
      Speaker. Dr. Swaroop Sahoo
      Title. Electronic Warfare during World War II
      Abstract. During World War II various countries attained varied level of technological expertise. The technological expertise or readiness covered various fields of science and technology. Some of the fields with lot of research activities, inventions, design and experiments were electronic warfare and navigational technology.
      This talk will give an introduction to various electronic warfare techniques, related hardware inventions and uses. It will also provide an insight into the war doctrines of countries and resultant uses of electronic warfare of 1935-45. This talk will also introduce the basic details of the navigational technology used by guided bombers (for bombing and landing) and first missiles (V1 and V2) of World War 2 years.

      Abstract
      The evolution of today’s miniature sensor systems happened due to the revolutions in the
      Microsystems (MEMS) and nanoelectronics technologies. Silicon and derived materials have been
      considered to be the primary materials in nanoelectronics and hence in MEMS. However, over the last
      decade, many classes of microsystems have been demonstrated using other potential materials like
      polymers and ceramics for reducing the cost of fabrication with inherent benefit of improved sensor
      performance. Talk would focus on the development of ultra-sensitive MEMS platforms with
      novel electromechanical techniques for integrated transduction as well as for CMOS-MEMS
      integration. The miniature microsystems have been demonstrated to have huge potential for
      the development of various engineering and scientific applications ranging from low cost
      micro sensors in the field of environmental monitoring, health care, homeland security, gas
      sensors for space and terrestrial applications to inertial systems such as MEMS
      Accelerometers.
