    Sooner or later, the practices we call “green” will have to expand from the token gestures we make today (turning down the thermostat and driving hybrids) to a nearly universal avoidance of oxidizing fossil carbon. In terms of aviation, it's time to start thinking about how to move people and goods, in commercial quantities, with a zero-carbon footprint; indeed there are several sche... View full abstract»

  • Phased array weather / multipurpose radar

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):12 - 15
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4076 KB)

    The first phased array radar dedicated to weather observation and analysis is now instrumented with eight simultaneous digital receivers. The addition of these additional channels will enable the use of advanced signal processing to improve signal/clutter in an adaptive mode. Elimination of strone point and ground clutter returns from the low-level, volumetrically-distributed weather cell returns ... View full abstract»

    “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” Two obscure errors almost prevented these words from being spoken. The errors were not made by the crew of Apollo 11 or by the controllers in Houston, nor were they made during the mission. Rather, they were made by engineers and managers years before the flight. How they happened, and how they went substantially undetected and ... View full abstract»

    How to identify when a static pattern digital test program should be re-hosted as a dynamic pattern set on the state-of-the-art ATE is complicated. However, there are critical issues that should be evaluated when making this decision. Issues include chip models, timing parameters, drive strength, logic levels, circuit complexity, I/O pins, automated diagnostics, portability, reuse, speed, optimal ... View full abstract»

  • SuperDARN ionospheric space weather

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):30 - 34
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4109 KB)

    The Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) of high frequency radars monitors ionospheric space weather at middle- to high-latitudes in both hemispheres. SuperDARN is an international collaboration involving scientists and engineers from over a dozen countries. The backscatter targets of interest are irregularities in the ionospheric plasma density aligned along the geomagnetic field. The Dop... View full abstract»

    Herein, the avionics system design of a mini Vertical Take-Off And Landing (VTOL) capable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), namely a Quadrotor, will be described. The Turkish Air Force Academy personnel together with a team of cadets have been working on the design and development of an autonomous Quadrotor vehicle for educational purposes. The main emphasis was to study the flight dynamics of such a... View full abstract»
