ONR Research Helps Navy Curb Kilowatts
With support from ONR, engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have designed a portable measurement system to precisely and cheaply monitor the amount of electricity used by individual household appliances, lighting fixtures and electronic devices.
