    The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer AMS-02 [1]-[4] is an astro particle physics experiment running on the International Space Station (ISS; see Figure 1) since May 19, 2011. Its missions include the search for antimatter and the identification of the nature of dark matter. The AMS silicon tracker is the only subdetector inside the AMS permanent magnet that can detect the charge of a moving particle to... View full abstract»

    The Bruneval Raid (Operation BITING), which took place on the night of 27/28 February 1942, was a British WW2 operation by the newly formed Parachute Regiment against a German radar station on the north coast of France. The story has been told in many places: for example in R.V. Jones's book Most Secret War as well as in several other books and websites. View full abstract»

    Navigation, for many years, has been one of the issues that preoccupied the human mind. The compass was the first instrument built for navigation by the Chinese. The compass determined geographical north instead of a magnetic one [1]. Gradually over time, humans found that it was possible to make orientations by celestial bodies. However, positioning was still impossible. In 1757, the first sextan... View full abstract»

    In this article, we investigated several SOOPs for mobile positioning without GPS and compared their signal characteristics for navigation and tracking. Critical issues in positioning with SOOP were discussed, which include the lack of independent SOOP (poor GDOP), SOOP clock errors, 2-D vs. 3-D solutions, multipath and NLOS signals, and signal integrity, among others. We described the development... View full abstract»
