    Network management is one of the most discussed topics in the networking fraternity. The efficiency of the network management suit is measured by the number of parameters/components handled by the application while making decisions. In the case of Internet-enabled aircrafts, along with network security, even aircraft safety needs to be considered as a factor while designing the network management ... View full abstract»

    A significant amount of attention has been paid to the functional and ground components in the evolution of the NAS to achieve the Next Generation System (NextGen) but there has been less attention paid to the aircraft equipage side of the equation. This is now changing with the recent establishment of an aircraft working group within the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO). The MITRE Cor... View full abstract»

    The introduction of wireless communication capabilities supporting transfer of sensor data and information on-board commercial airplanes as well as between airplanes and supporting ground systems has the potential to significantly improve the safety and efficiency of air travel. The benefits, however, come at the cost of information security vulnerabilities introduced by data networks. Regulatory ... View full abstract»

    Dense networks of short-range radars capable of mapping storms and detecting atmospheric and airborne hazards are described. Comprised of physically small, low-power antennas, these networks defeat the Earth curvature blockage that limits today's long-range radar networks and enable high resolution views that extend from the lower-troposphere to the tops of storms. The networks are comprised of 1-... View full abstract»

  • Fast equalization for large lithium ion batteries

    Slight differences between the series connected cells in a lithium ion (LiIon) battery pack can produce imbalances in the cell voltages, and this greatly reduces the charge capacity. These batteries cannot be trickle-charged like a lead acid battery since this would slightly overcharge some cells and may cause these cells to ignite. Therefore, an electronic equalizer (EQU) should be used to balanc... View full abstract»

    This describes a simulation architecture used to simulate an ultra-narrowband radar tomographic imaging (UNBRaTI) system. The work is being performed at Rochester Institute of Technology. This lays the groundwork for an effort to develop a systems level approach for the simulation and analysis of an UNBRaTI system using traditional radio frequency (RF) components as well as micro-electro-mechanica...

    This describes the development of path planning algorithms of a small unmanned four-rotor helicopter. A powerful simulation environment of the whole UAV system - including the characteristics of the important ranging sensors for collision avoidance was developed. This is essential for developing, testing, and verifying of the algorithms. Different collision avoidance strategies for VTOL-UAVs are p... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2048 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An FM-CW radar front-end was fabricated in an integrated manner at 60 GHz by using the NRD guide. The main emphasis was placed on compactness in size and high-precise operation in performance. The fabricated radar consists of an FM Gunn oscillator, a balanced mixer, and a planar antenna fed by a leaky NRD guide with a mechanically beam-scanning performance. All circuit components and the antenna w... View full abstract»
