With the launch of the compass-M1 satellite on 14 April 2007, China is set to become the latest entrant into global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). Understanding the interoperability and integration of the Chinese Compass with the current GNSS, namely the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), the European Galileo, and the Russian GLONASS, requires(More)
With the launch of the Compass-M1 satellite on 14 April 2007, China is set to become the latest entrant into global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). The satellite, sometimes referred to as Compass-2 or Beidou-2, is the first of the Compass navigation satellite system (CNSS) that will provide global satellite navigation coverage. While China has launched(More)
In this paper, we decode the PRN codes of the E5a and E5b signals broadcast by the Galileo GIOVE-A test satellite. The Galileo E5 band overlaps with Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) and Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN) bands. These navigation systems emit high-power pulses, causing severe interference to E5 signals and thus challenging the decoding(More)
This paper describes an algorithm that tracks and localizes a helicopter using a ground-based trinocular camera array. The three cameras are placed independently in an arbitrary arrangement that allows each camera to view the helicopter’s flight volume. The helicopter then flies an unplanned path that allows the cameras to self-survey utilizing an algorithm(More)
Today's cyber-physical (CP) electronic system design includes hardware and software with intelligent sensing and controls. Those CP future applications use high definition images, videos and context information with interactions to the physical world through sensors and actuators. Senior level courses including embedded controls, FPGA design, and server(More)
This paper describes an algorithm that tracks and localizes a helicopter using a ground-based trinocular camera array. Using background differencing and a Kalman filter, the helicopter is found in each of the camera images. The location of the moving helicopter in each image is then used to self-calibrate the relative positions and orientations of each of(More)
Today's cyber-physical systems (CPS) for the emerging Smart cities includes hardware and software with intelligent sensing and controls. In Smart cities, the use of high definition images, videos, and context information has become a requirement for urban street data collection and processing. Field Programmable Gate Array enabled data centers and(More)
