OPCAT is an advanced, commericially-available Object-Process Methodology (OPM)-based software platform for conceptual modelling of complex systems in virtually any domain. OPCAT is used to teach OPM in leading institutions of higher education and is applied in a variety of industrial and scientific domains, from banking through defense to molecular biology.(More)
The exercise prosthesis serves as an interim device to achieve an increased opening of the jaws. Once the patient is able to insert the existing denture or when an impression tray can be placed in the patient's mouth without extreme discomfort, its purpose will have been achieved; the dentures should be relined or remade. Some patients need only achieve(More)
This paper describes mechanisms that allow a multi-agent system to acquire and maintain a description of the total capability of the system, made up of the individual and joint capabilities. Once known, this capability awareness can be used to enhance autonomous or operator assisted deployment planning and hence, system effectiveness.
Introduction Electronically scanned phased array radar technology comprising several thousand RF T/R modules and associated RF beamforming is employed in the present generation of high performance military radars. In some cases these radars are further enhanced by a level of digital beamforming at subarray level. The present number of subarrays, and thus(More)
This paper will examine the use of multiple, concurrent communications links to construct a resilient communication network, designed to meet the requirements of guaranteed delivery and minimum latency in a typical, meshed, autonomous vehicle deployment. The Ad-hoc Ondemand Resilient Path (AORP) routing protocol described is a fully distributed protocol,(More)
This paper describes an approach to communications management designed with the aim of supporting resilient distributed control in the presence of unreliable communications. The communications manager design is supported by an analysis of distributed control communication requirements and builds on the information theoretic approach to function distribution(More)
This paper describes an antipodal Vivaldi antenna with a new flare shape combining two separate exponential curves. This antenna is characterised and shown to have superior performance over a conventional single exponential curve Vivaldi antenna. The paper concludes that it is possible to build antipodal Vivaldi antennas capable of operating from 1 40GHz(More)
