    Monitoring activity in the proximity of an active volcano is a critical task performed daily by experts. Due to the high sensitivity of the instruments and the harsh operating conditions, several influencing parameters affect the measurement process and force the use of either a compensation method or data post-processing. When performing microgravity measurements in volcanic areas, it has been af... View full abstract»

    Many methods can sense and respond to chemical agent release. We evaluate current and near-term sensor options for detecting the most likely threats, currently sarin, cyanide, and pesticides. We also identify sensor technologies that may be capable of responding to additional chemical threats and biological agents and provide options for coping with new threats as they develop. We collate previous... View full abstract»

    This article presents a process that evaluates an application for real-time correctness throughout development and maintenance. It allows temporal correctness to be designed-in during development, rather than the more typical effort to test-in timing performance at the end of development. It avoids the costly problems that can arise when timing faults are found late in testing or, worse still, aft... View full abstract»

    Currently, very little technology is used in real-world demining activities. Active programs by the U.S. Army in both land mine detection sensor development and systems integration are evaluating new technologies, incrementally improving existing technologies, increasing the probability of detection, reducing the false alarm rate, and planning out usable deployment scenarios. Through iterative des... View full abstract»

    The challenge in selecting processors is to understand the problem and the strengths and weaknesses of the processors. From that basis of understanding, one can then formulate a system solution to the problem. This discourse should provide some insight into the capabilities and shortcomings of DSPs and how one might apply them. View full abstract»
