    The second generation of the Radar Open Systems Architecture has been developed and put into practice. This approach consists of a layered architecture that isolates applications from underlying hardware and software elements such as operating systems, middlewares, communication fabrics, and computer platforms. The framework also consists of a set of component libraries that are being populated as... View full abstract»

    A percussive digging system has been demonstrated to decrease the amount of downforce needed to penetrate a given soil, thus reducing the required reaction loads and robot mass. Preliminary testing of a percussive digging system in compacted lunar regolith simulant, JSC-1A, has demonstrated a 15x (fifteen times) reduction in the downforce necessary to penetrate the regolith, Downforce reductions o...

    Unmanned Aircraft Systems will require a Sense & Avoid function to protect against collisions with other aircraft as well as various other hazards. Architectural alternatives in the distributions of functionality between aircraft and a ground control station make the development of requirements and standards more complex. A broad variety of candidate sensor technologies has the potential to fu... View full abstract»

    In order to improve aviation security, many airports apply Threat Image Projection (TIP) and computer-based X-ray image interpretation training (CBT). One difference between TIP and CBT X-ray images is the algorithm used to merge virtual threat items into X-ray images of passenger bags, resulting in different color nuances. In this study, we tested the influence of merging algorithms on threat obj... View full abstract»

    This presents new developments and perspectives in Phased Arrays Radars and Electronic Warfare for the next generations of T/R modules (medium/long term), in order to decrease the mass production cost, while increasing the level of performance and reliability. In terms of physical architecture, even if the brick concept is more current at mid-term, the tile concept is investigated for conformal an... View full abstract»
