Co-operative Perception (CP) for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have received extensive attention in recent years as a rapidly emerging and disruptive technology to improve safety and efficiency of current road transportation systems. Most of the existing and under development AVs rely on local sensors, such as cameras and lidars, to perceive the environment and interact …

Hypersonic scramjet propulsion enable hypersonic platforms and weapons, require overcoming challenges through new technologies

Countries are racing to develop hypersonic platforms and weapons having speeds between Mach 5 ( 6125 kilometers per hour) to 10 Machs.  Future Spaceplanes shall enable intercontinental travel at very high speeds, travelling on a sub-orbital trajectory, journey times from the UK to Australia could be cut from the current …

Software modem

Conventional modem designs can be termed as ‘fixed-function’ modems ‘ because almost all modem functionality in these modems are implemented in silicon resulting in large die sizes and limited flexibility. As the number and complexity of air interfaces increase, so does the challenge involved in planning, designing, manufacturing, testing and …

Next generation Jet Engines for Sixth Generation Aircrafts

Presently jet engines are the workhorses of airplanes carrying millions of people, trillions of miles every year, at supersonic speed and with high safety; the failure rate is only once every million flight hours.  NASA explains its principle, “All jet engines, which are also called gas turbines, work on the …

Software Defined Network (SDN)

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a network architecture approach that enables the network to be intelligently and centrally controlled, or ‘programmed,’ using software applications. This helps operators manage the entire network consistently and holistically, regardless of the underlying network technology.   Software-defined networking (SDN) is the decoupling of the network control logic from the …

Field programmable gate array (FPGA) for efficient data center systems to military radars and Electronic Warfare systems

All modern personal computers including desktops, notebooks, smartphones, and tablets, are examples of general-purpose computers. General-purpose computing incorporates ‘Von Neumann’ approach, which states that an instruction fetch and a data operation cannot occur simultaneously. Therefore, being sequential machines, their performance is also limited. On the other hand, we have the …

Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology

A radio is any kind of device that wirelessly transmits or receives signals in the radio frequency (RF) part of the electromagnetic spectrum to facilitate the communication or transfer of information. Software-defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where components that have been traditionally implemented in hardware (e.g. mixers, …

Metamaterial based Antennas for wireless and space communications, GPS, satellites, airplanes and missile seekers

Wireless electronic systems have been relying on dish antennas to send and receive signals. These systems have been widely used where directivity is important and many of those systems work well at a relatively low cost after years of optimization. These dish antennas having a mechanical arm to rotate the …

Floating ships with small nuclear reactors to supply power to countries

Small modular reactors (SMRs) defined as nuclear reactors generally 300MWe equivalent or less. SMRs have generated global interest, and potential future applications are a subject of international research directives.  Their are around 50 different SMR designs worldwide according to the IAEA.  Project proposals include use of SMRs for desalination, process …
