HALF CYCLE

The time interval corresponding to half a cycle, or 180 , at the operating frequency of a circuit or device.

CHRONOMETRIC RADIOSONDE

A radiosonde whose carrier wave is switched on and off in such a manner that the interval of time between the transmission of signals is a function of the magnitude of the meteorological elements being measured.

NOON INTERVAL

The predicted time interval between a given instant, usually the time of a morning observation, and local apparent noon. This is used to predict the time for observing the sun on the celestial meridian.

INTERVAL TIMER

A device which operates a set of contacts during a preset time interval and, at the end of the interval, returns the contacts to their normal positions. Also known as timer.

GALILEAN TRANSFORMATION

A mathematical transformation used to relate the space and time variables of two uniformly moving (inertial) reference systems in nonrelativistic kinematics.

PURGE INTERLOCK

A device so arranged that an air flow to the furnace above a minimum must exist for a definite time interval before the interlocking system will permit an automatic ignition torch to be placed in operation.

BASELINE DELAY

The time interval needed for the signal from a master station of a hyperbolic radionavigation system to travel the length of the baseline, introduced as a delay between transmission of the master and slave (or secondary) signals to make it possible to distinguish between the signals and to permit measurement of time differences.

DELAY BLASTING CAP

A blasting cap which explodes at a definite time interval after the firing current has been passed by the exploder. Also known as delay-action detonator.

AGE OF PHASE INEQUALITY

The time interval between new or full moon and the maximum effect of these phases upon the range of tide or the speed of the tidal current. Also called AGE OF TIDE.

GAMMA COUNTER

A device for detecting gamma radiation, primarily through the detection of fast electrons produced by the gamma rays; it either yields information about integrated intensity within a time interval or detects each photon separately.
