    As many have intuitively sensed, if not outright admitted to themselves, American corporate society has turned their focus to the bottom line. Do you use Cost-As-an-Independent-Variable (CAIV) to meet the bottom line today so you can live to fight another day? Do you stand on your principles so that, when tomorrow comes, you will be prepared? Can you do both? What happens when you guess wrong? Thi... View full abstract»

    Getting an engineering education doesn't have to be restricted to a desk or terra firma. University students, and even some high school students, can participate in the NASA Reduced Gravity Student Program conducting experiments in zero gravity aboard the infamous "Vomit Comet." This airplane was an unseen player in the Apollo 13 movie that provided weightlessness for star Tom Hanks in this outsta... View full abstract»

    A human presented with a variety of displays is expected to fuse data to obtain information. An effective presentation of information would assist the human in fusing data. This paper describes a multisensor-multisource information decision making tool designed to augment human cognitive fusion. View full abstract»

    The recently completed Austin-Bergstrom International Airport was the largest air base to commercial airport conversion during the years 1980-2000. It presented an ideal opportunity to modernize air traffic control facilities and equipment. Highlights of the upgraded functionality, transition problems encountered, and three phase cutover are provided View full abstract»

    Open system architectures based on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) building block components offer the ability to leverage the latest technology into fielded products while minimizing the impact to the operational flight software, typically the most costly component of an avionics development or upgrade. Our team has developed a layered hardware and software approach based on industry standard har... View full abstract»

    In these days of emphasizing standardization, Acquisition Reform, Non-Developed Items (NDI) and Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies, we are facing new challenges associated with these trends. Program managers are pressured to use a standard or COTS battery, while simultaneously, the new systems being developed have increasingly complex and demanding power requirements. Hardware must be de... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the necessity, feasibility, and technology of FOPEN GMTI. It argues that this functionality may be one mode in a multi-function UWB UHF system, which jointly possesses the capabilities for air target MTI and high resolution FOPEN SAR. The radar platform may be a UAV or an aircraft, whereas, we propose to use the push boom type of antenna mounting previously adopted with the ad... View full abstract»
