Advanced Architectures for Higher Speeds
The AA4HS Global Headquarters
The Global Headquarters is a focal point for a variety of
Scientific/Educational activities involving the practical deployment
of high technology.
"Think Locally, Act Globally"
Massively Parallel Computation Center
The AA4HS/AMRAD Massively Parallel
Computation Center is now on
line. The Center provides users two (2) '486 Linux boxes networked via
ultra-fast PLIP technology. Support for PVM and MPI multi-processing
environments allows source code developed at other sites, such as the
High-Performance Computer Center (HPCC) at Maui and the Army's ARL
MSRC, to run at new levels of performance.
Space Systems Division
Facilities at the Global Headquarters and the MPCC support research
into GPS assisted space navigation. Through the development of
software and hardware for AMSAT's Phase 3D satellite, the Division
embodies the "Science with Practice" ideal. The Division sponsers the
VEP (Visiting Engineers Program).
Alternative Architectures for Human Speech
Non-human machines speak with a human voice. The Global Headquaters
houses a research environment featuring the latest speech synthesis
and analysis algorithms. Here graphical manipulation of visualized
speech is possible. Out back is a Museum of Talking Machines,
including a vintage Votrax unit, a talking calculator and more.
Digital Communications Laboratory
It's all here - from Telegraph Keys to Ethernet, MIDI and AES/EBU,
Packet Radio to Internet audio applications. Protocols, Coding,
Modulation - choose from a complete library. For signal processing
applications, a Motorola 56001 based system is available.
Microwave Communications Laboratory
Wideband FM signals at 10 GHz are produced using Gunn diode
technology. Power supply augmented with photo-voltaic array for
extended operating times at remote mountaintop sites. The system is
also configureable as a CW RADAR, with Doppler moving target
Free Unix Systems Education
Light the FUSE, and explode into action! Why pay more? Become
informed, and enlightened. Learn the most effective techniques known
in the world. See the future develop before your eyes. Mentoring and
instruction is available from the Global Headquarters extension
services at a reasonable price (Free refers to the Unix Systems, not
to the Education).
The Computational Virtual Laboratory
The computation center also supports a number of software environments
for experimentation in algorithmic expression. C and FORTRAN are still
useful, but Octave supports a more expressive and convienient means of
expressing numerical calculations. The Khoros environment adds many
useful tools. Of special note is a library of locally developed tools
for handling model-based spectral estimation algorithms.
Lottery Number Services
You can be lucky! Simply send a SASE and a $10 bill to the Global
Headquarters, and you will be mailed a customized lucky number. These
numbers are derived through advanced techniques, and yield an order of
magnitude more luck than other such services. Send a $20 bill and you
will get three such numbers - an incredible savings!
