    In this paper we offer an overview of a number of algorithms suitable for 3D characterization of an urban environment from interferometric SAR data. By means of these algorithms we compare fine resolution C- and X-band SAR measurements over the same area to understand what useful information can be derived from these measurements. In addition we examine the similarities and differences of these da... View full abstract»

    It has always been claimed that smart cards provide a really high level of security, considering them as a tamper-proof device, with the possibility to auto-block some or all of the services it provides. Unfortunately, nowadays some hackers appear to have demonstrated the lack of security involved in some applications where Integrated Circuit Cards (ICC) have been used. This has led to the opinion...

    This paper discusses the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center's (TARDEC's) four (4) axis strategy for integration of robotics into the legacy, interim, and objective forces. At the cornerstone of this strategy is the R&D effort concentrating on autonomous perception and navigation, intelligent tactical behavior, command and control, and man-robot interface entai...

    The development of virtual instruments (VIs) is bringing a great revolution to the fields of automated testing and measurement. It is accelerating the integration of measurement systems and is promoting instrument standardization, modularization and generalization. A graphical programming platform for automated testing is one of the most important applications of VI technology, and it provides use... View full abstract»

    The simultaneous need for ground penetration and high resolution dictates the use of frequencies less than 500 MHz for imaging ground penetrating radar (GPR) designs. It is possible to build such systems with good performance and yet not interfere with ground installations operating in the same bands. The total number of airborne GPR systems needed to saturate the market is small, (possibly less t... View full abstract»

    Our global temperature's rise is caused by our atmosphere's ever-increasing content of carbon-dioxide, most of which comes from the exhaust of transportation vehicles. This has resulted in a worldwide search for alternatives to the high-powered gasoline fueled automobiles in wide use today. Replacing gasoline-powered cars with electric and hybrid-electric vehicles has become the most popular tool ... View full abstract»
