    In June 1998, Metsahovi Radio Observatory participated in a 10-day shuttle mission, STS-91, ground support activity by receiving, archiving, and making available, the so-called High Rate Data (HRD) from Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS). The goal of this particle physics experiment project was to detect antimatter in space. Some aspects of the HRD link performance are discussed View full abstract»

    Software designers at Hill Air Force Base have developed a voice recognition and speech synthesis system (Voice Control) for use with the F-16 Analog Test Station Sustainment (FATSS) project. The Voice Control system is reliable, speaker independent, and has a total added hardware price tag of under $50.00 per station. In contrast to traditional voice recognition systems, operator training is not ... View full abstract»

    The surface of Mars is an environment significantly different from both the surface of the Earth and from orbit. Solar cell performance is the major constraint on the landing site latitude, on science operations, and on how long during each day and during which Mars seasons a spacecraft can operate. This article examines what we know about the environment of Mars and how it affects the selection o... View full abstract»

    Target tracking using multiple sensors can provide better performance than using a single sensor. One approach to multiple target tracking with multiple sensors is to first perform single sensor tracking and then fuse the tracks from the different sensors. Two processing architectures for track fusion are presented: sensor to sensor track fusion, and sensor to system track fusion. Technical issues... View full abstract»
