Approximately one-half of the Durr Papers reflect the activities of his personal life, but Durr's government activities in the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC) are contained as well. The RFC provided loans to railraods, banks, agricultural agencies, industry, and commerce in order to help restore the economy. The collection also contains materials from 1940-1941 on an RFC subsidiary, the Defense Plant Corporation (DPC). The latter agency was created in 1940 to handle the conversion and expansion of industry to prepare for war with Germany and Japan. Materials on the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) are included for the period in which Durr served as commissioner, 1941-1948. The beginnings of education broadcasting in the U.S. is covered as is the Eugene Cox affair. The FCC regulatory policies and procedures for wartime and peace-time broadcasting are contained, as are materials related to the House Committee on Un-American Activities from 1941-1951. In the personal life and private practice series are materials related to the 1954 U.S. Senate Internal Security subcommittee hearings held in New Orleans, La., on the Southern Conference Educational Fund, which involved both Clifford and Virginia Durr, and on the civil rights movement in the South from 1954-1969. Durr served as counsel in a number of civil rights cases during that period

Underwater Docking of Autonomous Undersea Vehicles Using Optical Terminal Guidance( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Missions in which an autonomous undersea vehicle docks with an underwater node for the purpose of battery recharging and/or data transfer greatly increase the scope of potential applications possible with UUV's. Robust and accurate vehicle guidance to a small, simple and reliable docking structure is a critical capability which must be developed in order to achieve this end. This paper describes a simple but highly effective underwater vehicle guidance scheme which is based upon an optical quadrant tracker which locks onto a visible light source located at the dock in the same manner as a Sidewinder air-to-air missile tracks its target in air. An optical terminal guidance system based upon this concept was developed by NRaD. Optical guidance and docking was demonstrated using two autonomous underwater vehicles: a SeaGrant Odyssey IIB and the NRaD Flying Plug. The optical docking system was demonstrated to be accurate and robust for vehicle terminal guidance during field operations and provided targeting accuracy on the order of 1 centimeter under real-world conditions, even in turbid bay water. Such a system is projected to provide reliable terminal vehicle guidance to an underwater dock from a maximum acquisition range of approximately 100 meters in typical continental shelf ocean water
