In military operations and other communications channels of a sensitive nature, stovepiping is a structure that keeps the flow of information within a specific organization.
When it comes to communication between satellites and their interested parties on the ground, stovepiping can be counterproductive.
Twenty years ago, the power grid was run mostly on fossil fuels and nuclear power. Vijay Vittal, a Regents Professor of electrical engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, was an influential voice in power grid research during that time.
Working with other electrical engineers, he defined stability criteria for the power grid as it existed in 2004.

Aviva Dove-Viebahn is an expert on "Charlie’s Angels."
Not because she’s a huge fan of the cheesy TV series and movies that followed, mind you.
Instead, "Charlie’s Angels" is one of the media franchises Dove-Viebahn has studied for her book project, “There She Goes Again: Gender, Power and Knowledge in Contemporary Film and Television.”
During his time as a doctoral student at the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, one of the seven Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, Ganapati Bhat envisioned a device that could change the lives of patients with movement disorders, allowing their movements to be tracked and accurately measured while going about their daily lives, without needing to visit their doctor.
Two professors in Arizona State University's School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences have earned competitive and prestigious Fulbright Scholar Awards to research and teach in 2022–23.
Jason Caslor, associate professor and director of bands in Arizona State University's School of Music, Dance and Theatre, has been awarded the 2022 International Band Award by the Canadian Band Association.
According to government data, approximately 11.4% of U.S. citizens were living in poverty in 2020, up 1% from the previous year. Policymakers use this data to steer strategies, direct funds and create programs intended to help the country’s poorest citizens.
But while statistics help legislators understand the financial health of the U.S. as a whole, the numbers don’t paint a full picture of the situations that contribute to perpetuating poverty.
