A system and method for tracking and notifying related software, modules, and configuration files during software development and maintenance. A database, software build programming, a software module tracker, requirements management tools, and software source code that includes a comments area are implemented in connection with user interfacing to provide the method.
Method and apparatus for determining a metric for use in predicting properties of an unknown specimen belonging to a group of reference specimen electrical devices comprises application of a network analyzer for collecting impedance spectra for the reference specimens and determining centroids and thresholds for the group of reference specimens so that an unknown specimen may be confidently classified as a member of the reference group using the metric.
Removal of extraneous magnetic measurement components from magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) tends to increase its accuracy. Conventional removal accounts for anomalous magnetism manifested by the MAD vehicle (typically, unmanned), but assumes that the magnetic field applied to the MAD vehicle is the earth's magnetic field, i.e., is non-anomalous and known. In contrast, the present invention accounts not only for anomalous magnetism manifested by the MAD vehicle, but also for anomalous magnetism manifested in the MAD vehicle's vicinity, such as by a manned control vehicle.
A system and method for encoding zero and one bits for transmission, including generating a first signal from a non-linear chaotic system to represent the one bit, with the signal's embedded vectors being within the non-linear system's attractor set, and generating a second signal from the non-linear system to represent the zero bit, with the signal's embedded vectors being outside the non-linear system's attractor set.
A method and system for forming an improved image from a series of frames comprising inputting a pixel value array for each image frame; summing the pixel values in each frame to obtain the frame intensity for each frame; multiplying the pixels in pixel value array by the frame intensity; summing the frame intensity multiplied pixel value arrays together and dividing by the number of frames to obtain an average of the frame intensity multiplied pixel value arrays; then, using the inputted pixel value arrays, creating an array of average pixel values; multiplying the array of average pixel valu
A technique for transferring binary instructions from a computer system to an external platform is described herein. The process extracts binary instructions from the computer system. The instructions include a function at a register location. The process disassembles the binary instructions to produce an intermediate representation of the function. An interruption is inserted at the register location linked to a routine call.
A micro designator dart engages a target to allow for designation and tracking of the target by transmitting a radio-frequency identification code. The housing of the micro designator dart is configured to enclose its components and deform upon impact with a target to allow a target-engaging member to physically attach the micro designator dart to the target.
A method for processing three-dimensional data that defines a three-dimensional scene, and determining and displaying lines-of-sight (LOS) and viewsheds on all visible surfaces of the scene, includes: i) assigning at a user-selected location at least one viewpoint in the scene; ii) applying ray tracing from locations in the scene to the viewpoint to determine locations in the scene that are in a line of sight (LOS) and outside the LOS of the viewpoint, thus determining the viewshed relative to the viewpoint while generating a set of color-coding information; iv) saving the set of color-coding
The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a new magnetostrictive smart material with excellent characteristics for use in sensors, actuators, energy harvesting applications, and active structural supports.
