    The ability of UAVs to perform a “perch and stare” manoeuvre could significantly enhance their effectiveness during surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Herein, the concept of a biologically inspired leg-based landing system has been presented. The controllers have been tested in simulation and designed to minimize the forces experienced by UAVs during the perched landing manoeu... View full abstract»

    For high resolution imaging applications, ISAR can be viewed as a kind of camera which linearly maps the scattering centers from the physical plane to the RD image plane. Thus, the concept and methods of optical flow in computer vision may be introduced for the rotation estimation in ISAR. Furthermore, three kinds of optical flow analysis-based estimators, namely triangle-based, line-based, and im... View full abstract»

    A FMCW polarimetric imaging radar system has been successfully designed and developed at the Multimedia University, Malaysia. Upon completion, a course of controlled testing and experiments were conducted to verify the performance of the radar. The validity of the imaging was confirmed by running tests in the laboratory which extended to the field measurements. Polarimetric images have been produc... View full abstract»

    This presents work done on the project “Blade Parameters Recording Microsystem” funded by the French research program FUI. It resulted in a fully operational recorder that can be embedded on a plane. This system allows blade monitoring to be conducted using computing algorithms. Using a top-down modelling method, this recorder can be adapted to any kind of blade. Herein, recorder was... View full abstract»
