Biographical entry Pollard, J. W.
- Electrical engineer
J. W. Pollard studied during the 1960s the principles underlying gas pressure alarm technology as applied to coaxial cables. This was necessary because of the much lower resistance of the cables, not only to gas flow but to water flow, if a significant quantity of water penetrated the sheath.
