    TerraSAR-X is Germany's first national remote sensing satellite being implemented in a public-private partnership between the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and EATS Astrium GmbH. TerraSAR-X was launched on June 15, 2007 and will supply high-quality radar data for purposes of scientific observation of the Earth for a period of at least five years. At the same time, it is designed to satisfy the ste... View full abstract»

    When designing integrated modular avionics (IMA) systems, the traditional design life cycle must be adapted and rearranged to allow multiple vendors to contribute not only to the systems design, but also to the safety case for the system. Simply using guidelines from the DO-178B and the ARINC 653 standards does not guarantee that one will be able to have multiple applications running at different ... View full abstract»

    Airborne radar has evolved from early systems where almost all radar characteristics were fixed to today's highly flexible, software-driven systems. The most recent advance has been the widespread adoption of active electronically scanned array (AESA) antennas, which has given the system designer unprecendented control of antenna characteristics. However, in common with most conventional radars, e... View full abstract»

    The development of space telemetry technology has brought forward the need for large capacity memory of any solid-state recorder; data compression therefore, becomes more and more important. The compression feasibility and potentiality of telemetry data are examined by analyzing the statistical characteristics of actual telemetry data recovered from recorders. Aiming at the disadvantage of present... View full abstract»

    Sensor and high-voltage measurements are a vital part of many test systems. What makes these measurements different from typical voltage or current measurements is that a special type of conditioning is required to bring these signals into a measurable range. Some of the common examples of signal conditioning include filtering to eliminate 50 or 60 Hz noise, bridge completion to amplify small sign... View full abstract»

    The drastic reduction of Arctic sea ice in recent years demands ice monitoring over various spatial and temporal scales. Sea ice backscatter signatures from field measurements and from model analyses are obtained at L-band and C-band frequencies. Based on these signatures, capabilities for Arctic sea ice mapping are determined for current and future satellite active microwave sensors including syn... View full abstract»
