  • A Miniaturized VHF-Band Wilkinson Power Combiner for High-Power
           Application
    • Authors: J. Tayebpour;B. Ahmadi;M. Fallahzadeh;
      Pages: 4 - 6
      Abstract: In this paper, a miniaturized Wilkinson power combiner operating at 110 MHz is proposed for high power applications. A 3 cm × 3 cm five-layer power combiner with a size reduction of about 98.8% is achieved using meandered microstrip and stripline transmission lines in a stacked multilayer structure. Simulated and measured results are in good agreement. Measured return loss better than 15 dB over 65 MHz bandwidth and insertion loss less than 0.3 dB is achieved. There is good isolation, better than 25 dB at the center frequency, between input ports.

  • Deep-Space Optical Communication Link Engineering: Sensitivity Analysis
    • Authors: Nikolaos K. Lyras;Athanasios D. Panagopoulos;Pantelis-Daniel Arapoglou;
      Pages: 8 - 19
      Abstract: As in other facets of society, the data rate requirements of science and exploration missions in deep space are ever-increasing, mostly due to the number and refinement of science instruments onboard the spacecraft. For repatriating the increased data back to Earth, the communication link is the bottleneck. To tackle this issue for future missions, space agencies in the frame of Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems finalized recently a deep-space optical specification implementing serially concatenated pulse position modulation signaling. Fully based on this standard, this paper aims to provide a comprehensive tool assessing the sensitivity of the deep-space optical link on multiple factors. It also provides a practical method to avoid lengthy BER evaluations that would be otherwise required.

  • Additively Manufactured Luneburg Retroreflector
    • Authors: Joseph C. Deroba;Kevin D. Sobczak;Austin Good;Zachary Larimore;Mark Mirotznik;
      Pages: 20 - 24
      Abstract: A novel radar retroreflector is created using fused deposition modeling techniques. The three-dimensionally printed reflector is comprised of a variable dielectric structure generated using a set of space-filling curves, capped with a thin hemisphere of copper tape. The retroreflective performance is modeled using commercial software and radar cross section measurements are taken in an anechoic chamber. The modeled and measured results are shown to be in good agreement and demonstrate good retroreflective properties up to ±70° elevation and azimuth acceptance angles.

  • RF Sensing Technologies for Assisted Daily Living in Healthcare: A
           Comprehensive Review
    • Authors: Syed Aziz Shah;Francesco Fioranelli;
      Pages: 26 - 44
      Abstract: The aim of radio-frequency (RF) sensing for assisted living is to deliver automatic support and monitoring for older people in their homes, impaired patients living independently, individuals in need of continuous support, and people suffering from chronic diseases that require them to stay in care-homes or at hospitals. RF sensing technologies have the potential to improve the quality of living of elderly people or disabled individuals in need of timely assistance. This paper provides a comprehensive review on three of the most innovative RF sensing technologies for activities of daily living in healthcare sector (namely active radar, passive radar, and wireless channel information and RFID sensing) and presents some of the open challenges that need to be addressed.

  • Deep Learning for Classification of Mini-UAVs Using Micro-Doppler
           Spectrograms in Cognitive Radar
    • Authors: Albert Huizing;Matijs Heiligers;Bastiaan Dekker;Jacco de Wit;Lorenzo Cifola;Ronny Harmanny;
      Pages: 46 - 56
      Abstract: Target recognition using micro-Doppler spectrograms measured with radar has many benefits when compared with optical target recognition due to the all-weather and day-andnight capability of radar. Micro-Doppler spectrograms are, however, difficult to interpret by radar operators. Consequently, there is a need for automatic target recognition methods for radar. Cognitive radars that learn to extract relevant features from measured or simulated micro-Doppler spectrograms stored in long-term memory, offer the potential to automatically recognize targets. In this paper, the ability of various deep learning techniques, such as convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks for the classification of mini-UAVs using micro-Doppler spectrograms is investigated. In addition, the detection of spectrograms from targets that are not known by the cognitive radar, denoising of spectrograms, and the generation of spectrograms for underrepresented target classes with generative adversarial networks is explored.

  • Safety Assessment Process Optimization for Integrated Modular Avionics
    • Authors: Yunsheng Wang;Hang Lei;Richard Hackett;Martin Beeby;
      Pages: 58 - 67
      Abstract: In order to evaluate the safety impacts introduced by the additional interactions between the software partition and the integrated modular avionics platform, an optimized safety assessment process is proposed to address the software partition specific failure mode, quantitative failure rate budget allocation, software reliability verification, and feedback to higher level safety assessment. With a case study based on an airborne datalink system, the optimized safety assessment process is discussed in detail, including the specific failure condition and corresponding preventive/corrective actions, the allocation and verification of software partition failure rate, as well as the feedback channel of these partition software failure rate to item/function failure mode and effect assessment. A reliability framework of partition software is also presented to support the reliability verification of partition software. The methodology is applicable to other IMA-based avionics system.
