  4. Utilizing MIL-STD-1553B Digital Data Bus Devices Across an IEEE-1394A Serial Bus

    SBC: Seakr Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The MIL-STD-1553B Bus is a widely supported data bus for avionics applications and compatible with most of the avionics equipment. However, its low data rate (1 Mbps) and command-response architecture are not suitable for many modern applications such as on-board autonomy. Therefore, the avionics industry recently has been interested in adopting the IEEE 1394A Bus as the next generation avionics b ...

  10. Ultra Wide band Water Sensor

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to use Ultra Wide Band Radar (UWB) as a sensor for soil moisture and water content of snowpack. The key innovations are the application of UWB to form Synthetic Aperture images using a UWB radar mounted on a Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV). Initial results indicate excellent sensitivity of UWB to moisture. Key features of UWB for this application are low power, ?ghost free? SAR imaging, and ...
