Skin reflectance was measured on the inner arm and forehead of a sample of 209 Mestizos ranging in age from 2 to 64 years living in the town of Lamas in the Eastern peruvian Lowlands. The sample consisted of 43 father-son, 42 father-daughter, 62 mother-son, and 70 mother-daughter pairs. The sample also consisted of 57 brother-brother, 60 sister-sister and(More)
The Autonomous Sciencecraft Experiment (ASE) will fly onboard the Air Force TechSat-21 constellation of three spacecraft scheduled for launch in 2004. ASE uses onboard continuous planning, robust task and goal-based execution, model-based mode identification and reconfiguration, and onboard machine learning and pattern recognition to radically increase(More)
The Autonomous Sciencecraft Constellation flight demonstration (ASC) will fly onboard the Air Force's TechSat-21 constellation (an unclassified mission scheduled for launch in 2004). ASC will use onboard science analysis, replanning, robust execution, model-based estimation and control, and formation flying to radically increase science return by enabling(More)
The nature of rice bodies was studied, utilizing histochemistry, immunofluorescence, and scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Rice bodies were found to consist primarily of fibrous material, most of which was fibrin with small amounts of collagen. Channels containing a variety of viable cells permeated the rice bodies. Blood vessels occurred in a(More)
In spacecraft telemetry expert systems technology i s being used to manage the complexity generated by the increasing number of complex measurands. However, an uncontrolled proliferation of rules in an expert system can lead to maintenance and management problems of the system. A semi-automated tool, such as Pragati's MVP-CA (Multi-ViewPoint Clustering(More)
Directorate, we are developing architec-tures for commanding and controlling a cluster of cooperating satellites through autonomous software development for the TechSat 21 program (see the " TechSat 21 " sidebar starting on page XX). Many space missions require large, monolithic satellites. This often results in costly, complex, failure-prone vehicles whose(More)
The Air Force Research Laboratory is developing a space-based sparse-array aperture system, called TechSat 21. The TechSat 21 experiment is a cluster of three satellites that will fly in formation and operate cooperatively to perform the function of a larger, single satellite. The payload chosen to demonstrate the TechSat 21 concept is radar. Doppler and(More)
Air Force Research Laboratory's Distributed Architecture and Simulation Laboratory (DASL) is designed to support the development of new concepts in space systems. One new concept is AFRL's TechSat 21 program. TechSat 21 is a cluster of formation-flying and cooperating satellites. TechSat 21 poses significant challenges to satellite operations. The ground(More)
