This paper presents the main concepts of the IST Project FAIN " Future Active IP Networks " [10], a three-year collaborative research project, whose main task is to develop and validate an open, flexible, programmable and dependable network architecture based on a novel active node approach. This generic architecture for active networks is an innovative(More)
Nowadays the maritime operational picture is character-ised by a growing number of entities whose interactions and activities are constantly changing. To provide timely support in this dynamic environment, automated systems need to be equipped with tools— lacking in existing systems—for real-time prioritisation of the application tasks (missions), selection(More)
MaritimeManet is a system concept for communication between maritime platforms like vessels, commercial ships or buoys. When such platforms are equipped with MaritimeManet capabilities, they can form a network on an ad-hoc basis, i.e., without the need for fixed communication infrastructure. MaritimeManet is based on multiple directive beams for(More)
One of the numerous applications of wearable computers is providing safety in occupations where heat-related injuries are prevalent. Core temperature, as a parameter that cannot be measured by on-body sensors is a variable that is specifically interesting for realizing such applications. In the context of the design of a sensor-shirt that can be used by(More)
1 Problem description and aims On a yearly basis, at the North Sea there are thousands of ship movements, to and from Dutch ports, as well as vessels crossing over towards ports in other countries via shipping lanes that are considered the most busiest in the world (see the picture on the right). Adding complexity, the same shipping lanes are located near(More)
NUMBER Fig. 3. Measurements of the polarization dependence of transmission of two pigtailed optical isolators. The shaded areas indicate the manually measured values including H. 0 3 dB uncertainty. Ten singular value measurements of each isolator are plotted, each measured with different input and output birefringences (different settings of PTI and FT2 in(More)
