    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has been working toward space Internet and Interplanetary Internet (IPN) using appropriate network architecture and protocols [1]. As the widely deployed network protocol suite, the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) has been very successful in today's Internet operations. But TCP experiences severe performance degradation in space communications mainly because of the vast differences between terrestrial and space operating environments [2]. Although the feasibility of operating space communications using the Internet type of protocols has been a source of contention within NASA [1], a large number of alternative transmission control protocols and algorithms have been developed for space and other environments with similar communication conditions [2]-[8]. In [9], Wang et al. provides a comprehensive and comparative discussion for some of these protocols. View full abstract»

    This study investigates the optimal design problems for the hypersonic morphing vehicle. The correlations among the shock wave variation, propulsive performance, and control effect are discussed. The inversion design methods are applied to calculate the aerodynamic forces and moments of the hypersonic morphing vehicle based on the theories of the hypersonic computational mechanics. Then, the hypersonic morphing vehicle model is built, and the optimal performance indexes reflecting the waverider flight characteristics considering the appropriate flight conditions and the initial model parameters are presented. Furthermore, the variable metric algorithm is used to iteratively optimize the performance function. The optimum model parameters for the hypersonic morphing vehicle are then obtained with the control requirements. Finally, the effectiveness of the optimal design methods is verified by simulation. In general, the designs are preliminarily completed, along with the synthesis of the shape, aerodynamic force, propulsion, and the control action. We believe that this study provides helpful information on hypersonic morphing vehicles to guide future research. View full abstract»

  • An experimental UAV system for search and rescue challenge

    The overall UAV approach discussed in this article provided satisfactory performance for the avionics systems; however, the design is limited with regard to the wireless link and the image processing. Future development will focus on redesign of the airframe platform, the wireless link, and the image processing. UAV flight characteristics need to be better understood and more thoroughly tested to accommodate less-than-ideal flight conditions. Full analyses of the link margin for spectrum management and of risk assessment to handle flight failure/termination events, e.g., loss of data link, GPS, or autopilot, are needed. Overall, the design experience demonstrated systems trade-offs present in a practical vehicle and UAV capabilities even using off-the-shelf component integration. The prototype UAV could be used for aerial mapping, environmental monitoring, and search and rescue at a cost significantly lower than using traditional full-size aircraft for the same missions.
