    This paper presents a voting fusion application for use with a remotely controlled multisensor vehicle platform for antitank landmine detection. Data from three landmine detection sensors mounted at the front of the vehicle enhance the probability of detection and, when combined via data fusion, limit the false alarm density to practical levels. The performance of the voting fusion scheme presente... View full abstract»

    IVI stands for Interchangeable Virtual Instruments; the IVI Foundation was formed in 1997 and is a consortium founded to promote standard specifications for programmable test instruments. The foundation focuses on the needs of users who build high performance test systems. By building on existing industry standards, such as VXIplug&play driver concepts, the Foundation's goal is to deliver specific... View full abstract»

    This paper highlights the problem of run-time execution correctness of high consequence applications in conventional Von Neumann computer architectures. It proposes an approach - trusted objects - in which the application program and data are cryptographically encapsulated in their own environment. The remainder of this paper is organized as follows: after the authors present a description of trus... View full abstract»

    During flight, aircraft avionics transmit and receive RF signals to/from antennas over coaxial cables. As the density and complexity of onboard avionics increases, the electromagnetic interference (EMI) environment degrades proportionately, leading to decreasing signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) and potential safety concerns. The coaxial cables are inherently lossy, limiting the RF signal bandwidth wh... View full abstract»

    Since 1999, ESA has conducted a number of system studies and technological developments to support the European and Canadian industry in the definition of a Satellite UMTS (S-UMTS) component development strategy, identifying critical technological areas and promoting S-UMTS demonstrations. In particular, the MUSIC project has successfully demonstrated advanced digital signal processing techniques ... View full abstract»

    Often a test system developer discovers that there is a need for just a bit more capability than that called for in the original specifications. This paper looks at ways of pulling out that little bit extra, using the spare but less obvious capabilities that are built into all systems. View full abstract»
