    In late 2007, the Systems Engineering Advancement (SEA) Project at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) decided to design a multi-day Systems Engineering Workshop to train systems engineers in the practice of systems engineering. They were determined to avoid the trap of merely giving hours of lectures and presentations that would bore audiences and soon be forgotten. They decided to base the works... View full abstract»

    In today's digital age, it is possible to effortlessly create image forgeries without leaving any obvious traces of tampering. Herein, we present a brief review of existing blind methods for detecting image fakery. Blind methods are regarded as a new direction and work without using any prior information about the image being investigated or its source. View full abstract»

    Radio Data System (RDS) is a mature technique which has been developed over the past 20 years. Due to the common use of FM radio, the traits of low estate requirement and the convenience in broadcasting, RDS is suitable for use in wireless transmission of large-range and low-load data. This proposes the application of RDS in the Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) for low altitude flights. T... View full abstract»

    Obtaining continual mobile communication coverage over two or more disparate regions from an airborne platform utilizing a deployable cellular base station has proven to be challenging due to the resulting signal spatial structure and signal gain observed from the mobile ground users. A two-dimensional aircraft simulation environment has been developed to evaluate the optimal link budget of an ant... View full abstract»

    The performance of turbo-coded Amplitude-Phase Shift Keying (APSK) in an aeronautical telemetry system with a non-linear power amplifier is investigated. The AM/AM curves for four L-band power amplifiers are modeled and used to simulate the performance the turbo-coded APSK system over a non-linear channel, Spectral efficiency and bit error rate performance as a function of back-off are quantified ...
