    Recently, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become one of the latest application technologies in the aeromagnetic field. Furthermore, high-precision aeromagnetic gradient surveys need higher precision magnetometers, and higher dynamic measurement precision of UAVs. The problem of magnetic interference of UAVs must be solved to implement high-precision aeromagnetic surveys, as the switch mode power supply (SMPS) is one of the most important interference sources of UAVs. Through the analysis of electromagnetic interference (EMI) sources of UAVs and the working characteristics of optical pumping magnetometers, this paper intends to design and optimize the switching power supply circuit, reduce the generation of EMI, and improve the measurement precision of optical pumping magnetometers.

  • Soft fault detection in cables using the cluster time-frequency domain reflectometry

    Faced with the continual increase in complexity of wiring networks, their reliability, in particular in embedded fields (such as automotive and aerospace industries) becomes a major issue. In wiring diagnostics, reflectometry methods are commonly used. They are quite efficient for detecting important damage (hard faults) such as short-or open-circuits. These faults can have heavy material (e.g.: fires) and economical consequences. Then detecting them before they happen would be very interesting and useful. Unfortunately no current method is efficient enough for addressing soft faults. This article proposes an original approach to overcome this problem: the Cluster Time-Frequency Domain Reflectometry (CTFDR). Based on the fact that a wire is most often in a bundle with several other wires, this method takes advantage of the resultant near end crosstalk signals to get more information about the state of the wires in the bundle. To make the detection of incipient faults easier, a normalized time-frequency cross correlation function has also been used. View full abstract»

  • Test methods for RF-based electronic safety equipment: Part 2 — Development of laboratory-based tests

    Publication Year: 2013 , Page(s): 70 - 80

    We describe the development of free-field test methods for wireless electronic safety equipment that replicate field-test conditions in a laboratory environment. The test methods can be used to verify the performance of wireless devices, such as those used by emergency responders, in the presence of known attenuation and under RF interference conditions. The test methods presented here were developed to support the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in the revision of NFPA 1982: Standard on Personal Alert Safety Systems (PASS), but would be applicable to other types of RF-based equipment as well. In Part 1, we illustrated methods for extracting performance metrics from a series of field tests conducted by NIST researchers. In Part 2, we replicate the key field test conditions in the laboratory and verify device performance under those conditions. View full abstract»
