    The paper outlines the project undertaken in developing prototype of Radio Frequency Identification Walking Stick (RFIWS). The device intended to assist the blind during walking on a sidewalk. Many of the blind people used the traditional method like dog and old design of walking stick as their guide to walk on the sidewalk. The limitation of this method is the blind people must walk closely to the border of the sidewalk and use the walking stick to find out their current location. This will be exposing the blind to the risk like fallout from the sidewalk. The application of RFID will enhance the conventional method in term of detecting and estimating the distance between the blind and the sidewalk border. The project objective is to develop a walking stick prototype by utilizing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). A review of assistive technology was presented in this paper together with RFID application in China, France and Thailand. This paper also describes a RFID function and its components explicitly a tag, reader and middleware include a relevant frequency for RFID. The experimental works intended in this project will cover antenna polarization, tag performance, tag orientation sensitivity and tag communication distance for ultra high frequency (UHF). The project also includes development of hardware, software and integration of hardware and software. View full abstract»

    Experimental trials conducted from 2003 to 2005 in east China sea demonstrated that HF surface wave radar (HFSWR) OSMAR (ocean state monitor and analysis radar) could be strongly affected by scattering from ionospheric structures and irregularities. A large database acquired during those trials has been used in detailed investigations of the phenomenology of this ionospheric clutter, leading to the development of effective mitigation techniques based on the characteristics of ionospheric clutter. In this paper the 2-D angle of arrival of ionospheric clutter has been analyzed and the spatial adaptive processing based on 2-D antenna array is introduced to suppress ionospheric clutter. Experimental results confirm that the above technique can achieve effective ionospheric clutter suppression using the field experimental data recorded by the OSMAR2003. View full abstract»

    Incoherent scatter radar (ISR) is the only ground-based instrument that can detect space plasma parameters from tens to thousands of kilometers above the earth. The Prototype Incoherent Scatter Radar System of Nanchang University, a versatile space detection radar, will be built at Nanchang University to detect the ionosphere over China in the end of 2013. Software-defined radio (SDR)-based and active phased antenna array are the two most significant features of this radar system. It can probe real time plasma parameters in the altitude range of the ionosphere (80-400 km) according to simulation. The novel ISR introduced in this letter has the advantages of low power, low cost, and modularization. When properly configurated, this system can also carry out coherent scatter detection and wind profile detection. Successful development of such an ISR will resolve the problem of continuous detection of ionospheric electric field and other parameters. This letter introduces the design of this software defined ISR prototype system. View full abstract»

    Historically, a persistent problem for bomber aircraft has been the accurate delivery of munitions. Targets not initially destroyed require additional passes, at increased risk to both crew and aircraft. For some time, the US Air Force has recognized the need for “smart” tailkits to covert conventional bombs to precision guided munitions (PGM). A little over four years ago, Rockwell International's North American Aircraft Division (now Boeing) began pursuing an inter-divisional effort now called the B-1B Virtual Umbilical Demonstration (BVUD). This effort encompassed the development and demonstration of a GPS guided tailkit that requires no hardware link to the host B-1B bomber for MK-82500 lb. Bombs. All initialization, timing and control data is transmitted to the tailkit over an infrared (IR) link. In addition, the B-1B bomb-bay is modified to re-radiate the GPS L-band signal acquired from an antenna on top of the aircraft. This L-band link as well as the IR data link to each weapon constitutes the “virtual umbilical” since the link is via radio and light waves. The BVUD tailkit was developed and eighteen flight units were built in approximately one year. Testing was completed at Edwards Air Force Base with live drops over the NAWC China Lake bombing range. BVUD has been effectively demonstrated during both captive and live weapon drops. This project is innovative because, to the knowledge of the authors, it represents the first time a virtual umbilical has been used to control a weapon system. The command and control of weapons over an IR link minimizes the need for expensive aircraft modifications to interface with new weapons. The re-broadcast of GPS data within the aircraft bomb bay allows a weapon to track satellites (on P/Y-code), prior to launch. This creates many opportunities for the use of GPS by weapons that could not effectively use GPS because of satellite obstruction during captive carriage or short flight times View full abstract»

    ESA's SMOS mission has demonstrated that Synthetic Aperture Interferometric Radiometers can be a useful tool for Earth observation. Today, the NASA's GeoStar instrument (USA), ESA's GAS instrument (Europe), or CSSAR's GIMS instrument (China) are just three examples of planned geostationary millimeter-wave sounders using synthetic aperture interferometric radiometry for continuous atmospheric monitoring with a much improved spatial resolution. The study of the performance in terms of angular resolution and radiometric performance, and the optimization of this new type of instruments is a complex task that requires dedicated ad-hoc simulators. The SAIPRS (Synthetic Aperture Interferometric Radiometer Performance Simulator) is an ESA project aiming at the development of a generic simulator in terms of receiver architecture and array configuration, including moving antennas (and eventually changing polarization reference frames). This work summarizes the key aspects of the architecture of this simulator. View full abstract»

    The notion of providing secure communication via physical-layer designs has gained much attention in recent studies. This paper considers the transmit covariance design for a generalized secrecy rate maximization (SRM) problem under the scenario of a multi-input single-output channel overheard by multiple multi-antenna eavesdroppers. This generalized SRM design encompasses various existing SRM designs, e.g., the per-antenna power constrained design and the interference temperature constrained design. While the considered generalized SRM problem is nonconvex by nature, this paper shows that the problem can actually be solved in a convex fashion, by recasting the generalized SRM problem as a semidefinite program (SDP). The development of the solution to the generalized SRM shows that transmit beamforming is generally an optimal transmit strategy. Simulation results are also provided to demonstrate the secrecy-rate performance gains of the proposed algorithm over some closed-form, but suboptimal algorithms. View full abstract»

    Genetic algorithm application in the near-field imaging

    Recent development of near-field imaging anticipates promising and fantastic applications such as an ultra high-resolution scanning microscope. The moment method is introduced to the numerical analysis of this problem and the simulated image of a 3D object is presented (see Ishimaru, A., 1991; Morgan., M.A., 1990). A new type of dielectric sensor has been developed to probe the near field without disturbing the field significantly. To determine the relation between the shape of the tip of the sensor and the resolution of the image, a genetic algorithm is employed to search for the optimal parameters which provide the best resolution of near-field images. The best image has the largest focus value (see Michielssen, E. and Weile, D.S., 1997; Johnson, J.M. and Rahmat Samii, Y., 1997). The focus value, which represents the amount of the high frequency output image components, can scale the resolution of the 3D scanning near-field image. Through detailed observation of the relationship between gradient estimator and the FIR high-pass filter, the basic structure for the frequency selective weighted median (FSWM) criterion function is derived. Since the FSWM filter not only extracts high frequency components (edges) from the images, but also eliminates impulsive noise, it can estimate the focus value more precisely (see Choi, K.S., 1999; Choi and Ko, S.J., 1999).

    The near-field MMW synthetic aperture imaging radiometer is very excellent imaging system for obtaining high resolution images. The corresponding imaging algorithms are usually established based on the conventional FFT with the uniform sampling of visibility function. But a lot of irregular antenna arrays appeared for some reason, such as the coordinate perturbation and the development of the synthetic aperture imaging system. And the visibility functions of these arrays are always random. The un-Cartesian sampling data are not distributed on the uniform grid points. For this random distribution of visibility function, the traditional FFT based on the uniform Cartesian sampling cannot image well. Thus we adopt NUFFT to reconstruct the images from the non-uniform visibility function samples in this paper. Based on the near-field imaging formulas, the accurate system functions are established in NUFFT algorithm. The effectiveness of the NUFFT is tested by the corresponding simulation experiments with 1D and 2D Target scenes. The results show that the NUFFT is an effective imaging algorithm for near-field MMW synthetic aperture imaging radiometer with arbitrary distribution of the visibility function. View full abstract»

    SAR imaging applications are usually carried out by two ways: by physical/mathematics models and by the measured terrain material microwave signatures. In most of the cases, people like to use the mathematics models since the microwave signature databases do not match the practical case very well. In this paper, the authors discuss the reason for the uncertainties provided by these databases from the instrument point of view and propose a new ground-based scatterometer, SARSCAT, specially designed for SAR applications View full abstract»

    We present a modified fourth-order finite-difference time-domain [FDTD (2, 4)] conformal scheme for accurately computing electromagnetic characteristics of some complex three-dimensional (3D) perfectly conducting (PEC) objects. It has higher accuracy and efficiency than those of conventional FDTD and FDTD (2, 4) methods, as coarse meshes are employed with staircase errors reduced effectively during its implementation. Two integration loops of the Faraday's law are used for updating magnetic field components, while the updating equations of electric field ones are the same as those in the normal FDTD method. A rigorous analysis of its global stability, based on the conventional high-order FDTD stability criterion and the Fourier method, is also performed. In order to obtain stable and accurate numerical results, a user-defined geometric precision technique, which gives a criterion for determining the time step, is employed for our computations. It is numerically demonstrated that using our proposed FDTD (2, 4)-compatible conformal scheme, high accuracy and low dispersion errors can be achieved for fast predicting radar cross sections as well as induced current distribution of some complex 3-D structures.

    The paper describes the development of mobile communication first and then points out that it is necessary for China to develop satellite mobile communication after comparing the cellular mobile communication with the satellite mobile communication. After comparing the geostationary satellite system with the low earth orbit satellite mobile communication system, as well as the single beam with the multi-beams, both used in satellite mobile communication, we suggest that China, according to its economic status and level of satellite technology, should develop a geostationary multi-beams satellite for its domestic mobile communication.

    Multiple input-multiple output (MIMO) system is a promising technique for B3G/4G development. In this paper, the MIMO system above a 3-D randomly rough surface is modelled and numerically analyzed. The Monte Carlo method is employed to generate randomly rough surface, and the Kirchhoff approximation (KA) is applied to calculation of system scattering and the channel transfer matrix. It shows the dependence of the system capacity upon the array geometry and underlying surface parameters. It is found that the channel capacity significantly related with the inter-element separation of the antenna array. When the separation is small, the MIMO capacity due to presence of rough surface can be enhanced. However, when the separation is increased, the MIMO capacity becomes significantly reduced.
