    The ARCAA DSA program has recently demonstrated full closed-loop aircraft sense-and-avoid using vision-based sensor technology. Real-time onboard detection and tracking was accomplished by harnessing the parallel processing capabilities of GPU-based hardware. ARCAA's DSA program aims to develop a cost-effective collision avoidance capability to facilitate the routine operation of UASs in the natio... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1870 KB)

    The new family of radar targets, described herein, provides the radar operator with a clutter-free point source and a reliable means of assessing overall radar operation and performance on a continuous or periodic basis. Prior to this technology, performance checks were largely based on measuring and comparing receiver sensitivity and transmitter power with specifications and tolerances. A nearby ...

    A practical method has been suggested for solder joint thermal fatigue prognostics, which enables real-time fatigue calculations based on uncompressed temperature data embedded in a host system that performs safety-critical operations. The accuracy of the prognosticated remaining useful life depends on the level of details captured in the model, and the level of confidence from validation efforts. View full abstract»

    The ADS is the high performance attitude measurement system based on FOGs. This has presented a theoretical and experimental study of an ADS prototype. Several experiments have proved that the attitude accuracy of ADS is similar with PHINS. Its size, weight, and power consumption make it particularly suitable as an attitude measurement system of small vehicles for which precise attitude is critica... View full abstract»

    The developed test bench of tightly coupled GPS/INS integrated navigation system for an airborne vehicle was analyzed herein. From the obtained result, the performance of developed integrated navigation and workflow of the scheme is found correct. Particular attention was focused on the ability of the navigation filter to identify and remove the IMU errors. Along the UAV trajectory the performance... View full abstract»
