    Currently, the majority of collision avoidance systems on fighter aircraft depend on the pilot taking action whenever a warning is issued by the manual system. Any future substantial reductions in mishap rates will require extending the collision avoidance technology to systems that not only warn the pilot but also take control and fly the aircraft out of danger before returning control to the pil...

    This presents three valuable applications of scalable multifunction RF (SMRF) systems. These systems allow radar, ESM, and communication functionality using a single front-end architecture. With the use of a novel system design tool, concepts for SMRF architectures for airborne, ground-based and naval applications have been obtained based on a C-RAM scenario. View full abstract»

    Our aim at improving GPS receivers' availability in an urban environment, weak GPS signal acquisition becomes one key issue in satellite navigation signal processing. In special signal propagation environments, such as indoors, urban crayons, and woods, various factors such as signal propagation power loss, amplitude attenuation, and phase, time, and frequency delay distortions produce at the sign...

  • Method for building recognition from FLIR images

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):28 - 33
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3526 KB)

    Herein, a method for building recognition is presented in forward looking infrared (FLIR) images with clutter background, which is composed of the several sub-procedures. In the first phase, a three-dimensional (3-D) target model is generated and the model features are predicted based on the sensor's perspective relative to the 3-D target model. The second phase of the process, multi-scale structu... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1788 KB)

    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»
