    “Battlefield awareness” is critical to the success of future military operations. Existing and new sensor platforms will provide the necessary surveillance data; DARPA is developing the systems needed to turn the sensor data into meaningful information for the commanders. A central thrust of these efforts exploits the synergistic relationship between SAR and MTI radar. Used together, t... View full abstract»

    One of the most demanding aspects of a Navy helicopter pilot's job is landing his aircraft on the flight deck of a pitching, rolling, heaving and yawing ship. The complex airwake velocity field associated with the ship and aircraft interface directly affects the pilot's ability to control the aircraft during takeoff, approach, hover, landing, and deck operations. Dynamic Interface (DI) testing is ... View full abstract»

  • Characterizing wood by microwaves

    Common properties of raw wood can be determined by measuring the microwave propagation in the media. Unlike early designs from the 1970s and 1980s, simple constructions with phase and attenuation recording are now possible, if optimal frequencies are selected. At K-band, most quality impairments can be detected from basic group delay measurements, e.g., knots or insect holes smaller than 5 mm are ... View full abstract»

  • The realism of FAA reliability-safety requirements and alternatives

    As avionic systems become more complex, realistic qualification requirements for the flight-critical systems becomes more important, but more difficult to define. Requirements developed to establish acceptable levels of performance must be verifiable if they are to have any meaning. This article shows that both the current FAA requirements of flight-critical systems and the FAA recommended methods... View full abstract»

  • Is information security an oxymoron?

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):6 - 7
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (188 KB)

    Although weaknesses have been demonstrated in some security techniques (encryption, protocols, mobile code such as Java, etc.), current security technology is quite strong in many areas. Despite this, information security has proved difficult to achieve in large modern software systems. Many problems have been reported in which supposedly secure systems have been penetrated and, in some cases, sig... View full abstract»

  • Are intruder alarm systems effective as crime prevention measures?

    Intruder alarm systems, IAS, are seen by many as an essential part of the United Kingdom's defence against the crime of burglary. IAS are intended either to deter the potential intruder or detect and give warning of an intruder directly or indirectly to the police. Unfortunately the false alarm rate, at over 90%, is so high that it leads to ineffectual use of police resources and calls into questi... View full abstract»
