    Radar systems require transmission of very high purity signals. Photonics is now mature enough to achieve analog transmission with very low noise, strong immunity, and wide-bandwidth even in harsh environments. We present our recent developments of optimized optical links dedicated to radar and multifunction systems View full abstract»

    Acrylic resins that emit red, green, or blue (RGB) phosphorescence were fabricated. Mixtures of an organic dye and green phosphor created bright afterglow emission in the spectral region from yellow to red, which was difficult to attain with conventional red phosphors. Rhodamine and kiton were suitable for converting green phosphorescence to orange or red fluorescence. The resins continued to glow... View full abstract»

    The paper presents different use cases for location referencing. It shows how a full service chain for traffic information services could be established and gave an overview of the widely used method traffic message channel (TMC). After a discussion about the growing requirements of telematics systems, a new approach to location referencing is presented: the on-the-fly methods. The difficulties re... View full abstract»

    Continuous wave lineal frequency modulated (CWLFM) radar presents some interesting advantages for coast surveillance and control as well as low probability of interception (LPI). This paper presents real results obtained with a radar prototype and processed with ISAR techniques. Also, results of an automatic ship identification system applied to simulated ISAR images are exposed. Moreover, radar b... View full abstract»

    Eight evaluation metrics are used to compare and contrast three coordination schemes for a system that continuously plans to control collections of rovers (or spacecraft) using collective mission goals instead of goals or command sequences for each spacecraft. These schemes use a central coordinator to either: 1) micromanage rovers one activity at a time; 2) assign mission goals to rovers; or 3) a... View full abstract»
