    In mobile radio communication systems, one of the most significant problems is to use the radio frequency spectrum as efficiently as possible, because the radio frequency spectrum is finite. This paper classifies a variety of techniques for increasing frequency spectrum utilization. Next, it is clarified that our proposed ``new channel assignment algorithm'' is more efficient than other algorithms through simulation analysis. View full abstract»

    The Flight Dynamics Laboratory (FDL) has sponsored and managed the development and use of several generations of in-flight simulators during the last thirty years. These vehicles were designed and fabricated, and are operated by the Flight Research Department of Calspan Corporation, Buffalo, New York. These unique aircraft have been used to develop control laws and control systems, to evaluate new aircraft before first flight, to provide specialized training for test pilots, to perform essential flight research in flying and handling qualities, and to develop and validate the military specifications for handling qualitites of piloted airplanes. As aircraft and control systems have become more complex and capable, systems integration issues have required more and more effort and resources. View full abstract»

    There is a US Army vehicular positioning program under way called MAFIS (Mobile Automated Field Instrumentation System). Though its use is intended for full scale battlefield operational testing of mobile ground units and aircraft systems, the implications for extending this technology toward commercial aplications are the thrust of this paper.

    The Global Positioning System is an extremely accurate satellite-based navigation system which, after its completion in 1989, will provide users worldwide, 24 hour. all weather coverage. A joint research project among Boeing, Rockwell-Collins, and Northrop has been completed in which a GPS receiver was integrated with a low-cost strap-down inertial navigation system and a flight computer. A Kalman filter in the latter allows in-fight alignment and calibration of the INS. In addition, feedback from the INS to the GPS receiver improves the system's ability to reacquire satellite signals after outages. The resulting system combines the accuracy of GPS with the jamming immunity and autonomy of inertial navigation. System tests were conducted in which a Boeing owned T-33 jet aircraft was flown through known test pattern to align and calibrate the INS. Earlier tests, including tests against an airborne jammer, were conducted in a modified passenger bus. View full abstract»
