    The term “system” is defined as a: “… set or arrangement of elements (people, products, (hardware, software) and processes (facilities, equipment, material, and procedures)) that are related and whose behavior satisfies customer/operational needs, and provides for the life cycle sustainment of the products” [1]. Similarly, “enterprise” is described ... View full abstract»

    This has presented a time-sequenced wave model representation of SoS SE that is usable by SoS SE practitioners in developing implementation approaches to their activities. It has identified information critical to decision-making in SoS evolution, noted the artifacts in which the information is normally contained, and where the information and artifacts are created, updated, and used in the wave m...

  • Contextualizing agile systems engineering

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):17 - 22
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (695 KB)

    Discussion about agility within Systems Engineering is ongoing [9,10,13] but there had been little discussion about the right context for it. This proposed a classification scheme for the right context of the Agile Development Cycle that was identified to be the main principle of agile development. Prior work about the context of agile software development [5,7, 8] was taken as the basis. Intervie... View full abstract»

  • A systemic approach to managing risks of SoS

    As part of this, we identified some of the possible constituents of the systemic risk of SoS. It is valuable to note that the constituents could vary from case-to-case and are also time-dependent due to the dynamic nature of SoS and the environment in which it operates. Furthermore, the authors pointed out the importance of the application of systemic risk in the SoS domain and thus understanding ... View full abstract»

  • Orthogonal netted radar systems

    An ONRS is a radar networking system consisting of multiple pulse compression radars with each transmitting a distinct coding signal exclusively from a group of orthogonal coding waveforms and equipped with a bank of parallel matched filters. The fundamental difference between ONRS and traditional netted radar systems is that ONRS is capable of operating as monostatic radars and multistatic radars... View full abstract»

  • Wireless optical communications for intra-spacecraft networks based on OCDMA with random optical codes

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):36 - 41

    In recent years, spacial agencies have shown a growing interest in optical wireless as an alternative to wired and radio-frequency communications [1,2]. The use of these techniques for intra-spacecraft communications reduces the effect of take-off acceleration and vibrations on the systems by avoiding the need for rugged connectors and provides a significant mass reduction. Diffuse transmission al... View full abstract»

  • Scatterometer use for oil spill measurements

    Our results show that the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is detectable by ASCAT. We account for low wind speed oil look-alikes by comparing ASCAT measurements against NWP data. The estimated size and shape validates well with NOAA estimates for most of the spill. It is remarkable that a relatively coarse resolution spaceborne radar can map the oil spill - this method would not work as well for smalle... View full abstract»
