Four primary goals of a state-supported summer term in the CSU guided the YRO conversion:
Ten campuses converted to state-support in summer 2001, six were slated to convert in summer 2002, and two will convert to YRO as needed.
Campus YRO coordinators reported on such issues as academic instructional offerings, breadth and quality of instruction, instructional calendar, student services, faculty and staff compensation, employment issues, and success factors.
Complementing the synthesis of CSU data and campus reports were semi-structured interviews administered individually in college year 2002-2003 by the researcher with academic administrative officers and extended education administrators from the ten conversion campuses that began full implementation of YRO in 2001.
Additional questions were designed to elicit their perceptions of the effects of YRO conversion on extended education and the methods they have employed to redefine and redirect their self-support organizational units.
The mean term summer FTES for the pilot YRO summer was 272 with a range from 68 to 703.
Most campuses appointed an academic administrator the responsibility for coordinating the YRO conversion with the expectation that summer term would be administered through infrastructure support similar to the other terms.
We are pleased that Tyco has recognized the value of our technology and has chosen to be first to market with YRO to improve the performance of military communications equipment.
APA Wireless Technologies' YRO (YIG Replacement Oscillator) is a lower cost, mass-producible alternative to current RF technology and overcomes many of its physical limitations.
APA Wireless' YRO technology is provided as a single module or in custom turnkey solutions, utilizing the company's vertically integrated capabilities, from engineering through automated production.
The YRO also has the potential to replace YIGs in many other applications including avionics, test equipment, radar and military uses, stated Goddard.
In 1997, ICS/Tropical was added when Eliot Fenton, who spearheaded the new YRO technology's development, joined his Integrated Component Systems (ICS) with the family of companies.
