253 ABSTRACT The UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) in conjunction with the Defence Evaluation Research Agency (DERA) have established a program of applied research concerned with the development of cockpit adaptive automation and decision aiding for military fast-jet pilots. The operational requirement for this cognitive cockpit project arises from the(More)
Toward the goal of improved representation learning, we propose a novel deep architecture for unsupervised feature learning based on a recursive multilayered union of subspaces (UoS) model. The model is able to accurately generate recursive nested signal segments at increasing fields of view as we progress from one layer to the next. The local subspace(More)
In this study we introduce a new class of bandwidth-expansion source-channel codes for analog error correction that can work in any even dimensional space and show superior performance in the low SNR region. Our codes are constructed as geodesics on flat tori as previous studies have done, but we use a tube radius construct derived from the global(More)
In this paper we develop a new Bayesian compressive sensing (BCS) decoding algorithm based on iterated conditional modes (ICM) as the inference engine. This approach has the advantage of admitting relatively simple closed-form update rules even for heavy-tailed distributions without resort to conjugate priors and hierarchical models. To demonstrate the(More)
In this paper we propose an iterative algorithm for estimating the semi-blind BLUE of the channel impulse response with respect to each source transmitter in an asynchronous scalar Gaussian multiple access channel (GMAC) with complex-valued intersymbol interference (ISI). We examine the case for the two-user GMAC where user 1's training arrives during the(More)
Towards the goal of designing an optimal single-carrier frequency domain equalization (SC-FDE) receiver, we introduce a novel carrier frequency offset estimator, maximum likelihood (ML) frequency-domain channel estimator, and joint ML frequency domain equalizer, source separator, and symbol timing recovery algorithm that uses known training sequences. The(More)
1. SUMMARY This paper describes work undertaken to provide a proof-of-concept demonstration of the feasibility of an intelligent aiding system for the fast jet military pilot. The aim was to allow the pilot in control of the aircraft, or the operator in control of an uninhabited air vehicle (UAV) either in the air or on the ground, " to concentrate his(More)
