    We have seen how to avoid the cold finger areas in order to get a better segmented TH image. These approaches are only necessary when temperatures from the finger are close to the surface. Once the TH image is well segmented we have observed different performance. View full abstract»

    A complete optical wireless interface for the ARINC 429 avionics bus has been presented as part of this paper. After evaluating the previous results, we conclude that the described system complies with all electrical and timing restrictions imposed by the ARINC 429 specification, ensuring the compatibility with such avionics bus.

    There are three fundamental problems that are frequently faced in the development of test systems for aging military assets: 1) aging systems require the development of new support equipment due to either the age of the system or the age of the extant support equipment, 2) new test requirements, unforeseen at the beginning of a system's life-cycle needs to be identified, and 3) test methodologies are developed over the life cycle of a system that drives testing to be performed in a new and better way.

  • Low-cost multibeam phased array antenna for communications with GEO satellites

    In this article, we have shown the development of a unique design concept in which a single planar array antenna consisting of N × M elements on a mobile earth station, such as a navy ship, will require only M phase shifters (for each beam) and one or two hard-wired squints to communicate with several GEO satellites simultaneously by generating multiple independent beams. Our simplified design enables a reduction in both the cost and the complexity of a PAA. This unique concept reduces complexity by requiring full scan capability only in the azimuth plane, thereby reducing the number of phase shifters from NM to M for each beam. At the same time, only one or two hard-wired squints are used in the elevation plane, further reducing the complexity and thus the cost of development of such a PAA. View full abstract»

  • Collaborative opportunistic navigation [Student research highlight]

    Motivated by the plenitude of ambient radio frequency signals in GNSS-challenged environments, a new paradigm to overcome the limitations of GNSS-based navigation is proposed. This paradigm, termed opportunistic navigation (OpNav), aims to extract positioning and timing information from ambient radio frequency signals of opportunity (SOPs). OpNav radio receivers continuously search for opportune signals from which to draw navigation and timing information, employing on-the-fly signal characterization as necessary. In collaborative opportunistic navigation (COpNav), multiple OpNav receivers share information to construct and continuously refine a global signal landscape. View full abstract»
