    This deals with the design and architecture of the low-cost Multipurpose Flight Visualization System (MFVS). The MFVS system was originally developed as a passive IFR approach system for small general aviation planes. A relatively high adaptability is one of the main advantages. It can be easily used with many types of avionics devices. The GPSIINS system is used as the primary data source. The da... View full abstract»

    When management informs you that internal or external auditors are on their way to conduct an audit of your project, you may have many questions and, at times, few answers: Why are the auditors coming? Why now? What are they looking for? How long will the audit take? What can we do to prepare? What help will the project receive in responding to the auditors? This presents a description of the typi... View full abstract»

    The first studies for the mobile mapping and creation of a vehicle for this kind of research was carried out by Canadian Researchers in the 1980s. Since then, these vehicles have been widely employed in several applications (road cadastre maps, terrestrial photogrammetry, road sign recognition, etc.) for both commercial and research purposes throughout the world. Many GNSS/INS vehicles which can b... View full abstract»

    As part of a JPL-wide software quality initiative aimed at addressing the challenges of developing, managing, and acquiring software, a team at JPL generated a detailed Software Training Plan for both managers and engineers. The team took the approach of treating the software training program as though it were a system development task and went through all the typical phases of system development ... View full abstract»

    The problem of "sense-and-avoid" for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is genuinely multi-dimensional: there is a wide range of UAS sizes, speeds, and maneuverability, as well as missions for which these UAS will be used. There are also a variety of sensors that might be used for sense-and-avoid, which have widely varying capabilities to measure distance or angle to an obstacle, as well as closing r...

    Determination of failure causes of the control systems and navigation electronic elements of space flying vehicles (SFV), observed in the process of long-time flights, is of current importance. Failures of the control systems in the process of long-time flights considerably reduce their reliability and, consequently, raise expenses in this field. In particular, this requires an additional backup o... View full abstract»
