The design and development of a serial fiber optic data bus to connect several Intel single board computers in a distributed processing system is described in this thesis. Included are details on the serial bus control and message handling techniques developed for the system. Also included is a complete description of the hardware that was constructed. Commercially available fiber optic components were used in the data bus. The interface software is compatible with a real-time operating system previously developed at the Naval Postgraduate School.

The Effect of Correlation on the Reliability of Series Systems with Joint Normally Distributed Component Failure Times Batts, Charles J. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967-06);A practice in systems reliability studies has been to assume that the components making up these systems fail independently, i.e., correlation effects are ignored. As a result, the reliability computations are somewhat ...
