    The IEEE Standards Association is leading a strategic and cultural transition in order to align itself with a paradigm shift in international standards and to better meet the needs of global industry and consumers. To achieve that goal, the IEEE-SA is amid a multifaceted transition toward greater flexibility in services and significantly greater coordination and cooperation across SDOs and geographies over the long term.

  • Frequency allocation challenges for ultra-wideband radars

    Publication Year: 2013 , Page(s): 12 - 18

    Several new techniques have been presented in the past decade for improved detection and tracking of fixed and moving objects. A strong motivation for very wideband operation is continually being justified. However, these new systems are invariably classified as ultra-wide band by the spectrum control authorities. Under that classification, the process to obtain frequency allocation has been significantly complicated. If these new radar capabilities are to be realized for sensing, collision avoidance, and resource monitoring in severe environments, a new design of radar waveform and signal processing is needed.

  • IEEE Radar standards and the radar systems panel

    Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Radar standards were created to uniquely define terminology associated with the development, characterization, and utilization of radar systems. The radar standards are essential tools utilized by the radar community to enable clear and concise communication of radar aspects and facilitate the specification and evaluation of radar performance. The AESS Radar Systems Panel (RSP) consists of a group of experts in the field of radar who promote various radar related activities such as the IEEE Radar Conferences, student education initiatives, and many more benefiting the radar community. One of the lesser known RSP activities is the development and maintenance of radar related standards. The two radar standards sponsored by the RSP are the IEEE Standard (STD) 521, IEEE Standard Letter Designations for Radar Frequency Bands [1], and IEEE STD 686, IEEE Standard Radar Definitions [2]. Another radar related standard that is not sponsored by the RSP but includes several RSP members on the working group is IEEE STD 1672, IEEE Standard for Ultrawideband Radar Definitions. The radar standards provide essential tools for radar engineers specifying, developing, and evaluating radar system performance. View full abstract»

  • Gyro and Accelerometer Panel: 50 years of service to the inertial community

    Publication Year: 2013 , Page(s): 23 - 29
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (927 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    This article has described what gyros and accelerometers are and how they can be used to make various inertial systems. Gyros, accelerometers, and inertial systems are used in the military, scientific, automotive, industrial, medical, and consumer fields. With so many different types, grades, manufacturers, and users of inertial sensors and systems, standardization is important. Standards reduce confusion by establishing an accepted way to describe the technology and product. Standards development requires consensus and can lead to interesting stories. View full abstract»

  • An IEEE standards-based visualization tool for knowledge discovery in maintenance event sequences

    This paper described the initial and ongoing development of a tool that facilitates improved knowledge discovery within maintenance data by transforming data records into ontology-based event graphs and providing several filterable visualizations of event sequences through time. We accomplish several major preprocessing objectives, such as records-to-ontology event mapping and the resolution of date conflicts in the aggregated records of events. View full abstract»

  • A case study on U.S. government military standard development

    Developing standards normally arises out of a perceived need for commonality to obtain interoperability, cost savings, or logistics benefits. The multiplexed data bus concept was a perceived need by the digital engineering community but considered a high risk by management. A lack of understanding for those outside the engineering field induced this risk element. We had to educate and “sell” the concept first to them. We highlighted all the benefits to them, the flexibility, the plug-and-play capability, the reduced logistics, and cost savings. All this did not sway them until they were in a bind, then weight savings was the acceptance criteria. Even though important, weight savings was not the only benefit. Creating new standards requires persistence, compromise, and time to develop. Salesmanship is as important as engineering competence. Demonstrations and proof of concept are critical. And finally, it was found that the best standards are those where the government works hand in hand with the applicable industry to get everyone's buy in. View full abstract»
