    In today's world of constrained budgets, one of the problems the military faces is the challenge of trying to maintain organic maintenance capabilities. Historically, the US Air Force has desired to achieve an autonomous capability to maintain the equipment it uses. This has been achieved, traditionally, by setting-up three levels of maintenance: organizational; intermediate (back-shop); and depot... View full abstract»

    There are processing requirements for military avionics applications in excess of 1010 operations per second. Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) support these types of processing rates, and also offer other advantages (i.e., lower cost, lower power consumption, and smaller size) for military avionics relative to alternate types of processing solutions. This paper discusses the need ... View full abstract»

  • Airborne radar: its beginnings in World War II

    Although not realized at the time, the defeat of the German Air Force in the summer of 1940 was one of the crucial battles of World War II. The narrow margin of victory can be ascribed to Britain's air-warning radar, Chain Home (CH), consisting of the 15-meter CH and the 1.5-meter CHL. The skillful use of this equipment by the Royal Air Force made daylight bombing unsustainable; the Luftwaffe then... View full abstract»

  • Ultra wideband technology for aircraft wireless intercommunications systems (AWICS) design

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):14 - 18
    Cited by:  Papers (5)

    Current intercommunications system (ICS) designs for military, multicrew aircraft utilize lengthy, encumbering cords to physically attach the crewmember's helmet or headset to a distributed audio intercom system. Typical ICS long-cords are approximately 100 feet in length and allow crewmembers to maintain communications as they move about the aircraft while performing their mission duties. These c...

  • Software replacement of test module adapters for depot instrumentation due to obsolescence

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):25 - 30
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (453 KB)

    Depot-level automatic test equipment has been used over the years by various facets of both the government and commercial industry. Over time, the instrumentation used in the depot will need to be repaired or replaced and, oftentimes, the older instruments are no longer serviceable or manufactured. This paper discusses how to replace the obsolete instrument and its associated hardware. Test module... View full abstract»

    The term ultra-wideband (UWB) [which was formally defined by DARPA in 1990], for classifying an emerging technology in the field of radar and radio communications is synonymous with the following terms: baseband; video pulse; nonsinusoidal; carrierfree (carrierless); impulse; time-domain; super-resolution; ultra-high resolution; stealthy; spread spectrum; Rayleigh spectrum. The paper lists the ter... View full abstract»

    Current experimental synthetic vision systems present a spatially integrated presentation of physical constraints such as terrain and obstacles. This paper presents a number of assumptions regarding anticipated procedures and the use of a synthetic vision system, and addresses the desirability of integrating temporary constraints related to the airspace, the airport, and standard procedures.
