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)
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 On-demand Resilient Path (AORP) routing protocol described is a fully distributed protocol,(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)
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.
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)
