The use of radial basis function (RBF) networks and least squares algorithms for acquisition and fine tracking of NASA's 70-m-deep space network antennas is described and evaluated. We demonstrate that such a network, trained using the computationally efficient orthogonal least squares algorithm and working in conjunction with an array feed compensation(More)
The use of radial basis function networks for fine pointing NASA's 70-meter deep space network antennas is described and evaluated. We demonstrate that such a network, working in conjunction with the array feed compensation system, and trained using the computationally efficient orthogonal least-squares algorithm, can point a 70-meter deep space antenna(More)
Ectopic PTH secretion by tumor cells has been described as the cause of hypercalcemia associated with malignancy in the absence of osteolytic bone lesions. Although there have been case reports of elevated PTH and hypercalcemia in patients with rhabdomyosarcoma, to date ectopic PTH secretion by malignant cells has not been definitively shown. The(More)
— A method for optimal adaptive setting of pulse-position-modulation pulse detection thresholds, which minimizes the total probability of error for the dynamically fading optical free space channel, is presented. The threshold's adaptive setting, in response to varying channel conditions, results in orders of magnitude improvement in probability of error,(More)
