    The Space Department at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) launched a formal mentoring program in 2007. While a mentoring program existed previously, it was not widely utilized and eventually lost support. The new program was designed to focus on the staff members' needs and desires for career growth and an opportunity for those skilled with years of expertise in the spa... View full abstract»

    Cognitive Radar describes a generic radar system that is capable of adapting its transmission waveforms and cooperation with other sensors in order to achieve superior detection, recognition, and tracking of targets. For example, the sensors of a cognitive radar system might use the illumination signals to carry broadcast data, allowing the sharing of target information. Herein, we postulate that ...

    The system of air-ground communications is one of the most fundamental elements of air traffic control in the National Airspace System (NAS). The current air-ground voice communications systems are using the more than 50-year-old analog voice transmission technology in the licensed air traffic management VHF spectrum band. The limited spectrum is allocated statically based on air traffic control o... View full abstract»

    Uplink array technology is currently being developed for NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN), to provide greater range and data throughput for future NASA missions, including manned missions to Mars and exploratory missions to the outer planets, the Kuiper belt, and beyond. The DSN uplink arrays employ N microwave antennas transmitting at X-band to produce signals that add coherently at the spacecraft... View full abstract»

    See-and-avoid is the current FAA approved method for pilots to avoid objects and other aircraft while flying in visual meteorological conditions (VMC). Although fully autonomous “sense-and-avoid” or “detect-and-avoid” systems are in development, none are currently certified. Thus existing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operations are limited to case-by-case restricted ai... View full abstract»
