Abstr act Realistic simulations of the movement of infantry in urban environments with 3D models and at interactive rates is of wide and enduring interest. Many video games have attempted it, and military simulations are increasingly doing the same. Previous attempts have fallen short in two areas: properly coordinating movement, and adequate modeling of(More)
Many software development tasks centered on training and operations for spaceflight have common aspects. Software engineers and researchers working in these areas stand to benefit from a software framework that can provide frequently used components. Preliminary results from the development of such a framework are presented in this paper. It is hoped that(More)
Traditional inverse kinematics systems are riddled with issues that make their use in real-time simulations prohibitive. Foremost, the computational costs associated with these methods are too high to make their widespread use practical. Furthermore, their usage typically results in the synthesis of animations that fail to impart the sense of weight and(More)
The Smart Systems Research Laboratory (SSRL) at the NASA Ames Research Center has developed an Intelligent Virtual Station (IVS) prototype for the International Space Station. The IVS addresses major challenges faced by astronauts, mission controllers, and engineers such as efficiently managing large amounts of information. It also targets certain(More)
MicroRNAs are a fundamental class of small RNAs involved in post-transcriptional gene regulation; however, the mechanism by which microRNAs regulate their gene targets in animals remains poorly understood. Practically, a mechanistic understanding of microRNA binding and regulation is crucial for the rational design of microRNA-based vectors for RNA(More)
—Encryption is a key ingredient in the preservation of the confidentiality of network communications but can also be at odds with the mission of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSes) to monitor traffic. This affects Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMIs) too where the scale of the network and the sensitivity of communication make deploying IDSes along with(More)
