This paper presents a fully functional and highly portable mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) system, HAWK, for conducting aerial localization. HAWK is a programmable mini helicopter Draganflyer X6 armed with a wireless sniffer Nokia N900. We developed custom PI-Control laws to implement a robust waypoint algorithm for the mini helicopter to fly a planned(More)
Little information is available about signaling response to magnesium toxicity (MgT) in plants. This study presents the first evidence that abscisic acid (ABA) and DELLA proteins participate in signaling response to long-term MgT in Arabidopsis thaliana (Landsberg erecta). Morphological, physiological, and molecular characteristics of a wild-type and two(More)
Positioning wireless mobiles has been widely studied. However, issues on efficiency and accuracy are not fully considered in the design of most positioning techniques. In this paper, we analyze the performance of localization of wireless mobiles with the knowledge of signal sampling theory. We propose a general approach of locating a wireless mobile device(More)
People are benefiting tremendously from pervasively deployed WiFi networks. However, criminals may exploit the anonymity of WiFi communication and wireless routers to access illegal content such as child porn videos. It’s becoming an urgent topic as regards to how to preserve and acquire network forensic data from household and small business wireless(More)
Miniature (mini) drones are enjoying increasing attention. They have a broad market and applications. However, a powerful technology often has two ethical sides. Miniature drones can be abused, rendering security and privacy concerns. The contribution of this paper is two-fold. First, we will perform a survey of mini-drones on market and compare their(More)
The network address translation technique (NAT) is widely used in wireless routers. It is a low cost solution to IPv4 address space limitations. However, cyber criminals may abuse NAT and hide behind wireless routers to use mobile devices and conduct crimes. To identify a suspect mobile device, we should be able to map the suspect public traffic on the(More)
Using both the swarm-intelligence-based CALYPSO method and the multi-algorithm-collaborative (MAC) algorithm for crystal structure prediction, three unexpected new phases (P63/mmc, C2/m and Cmca) of IrB4 are predicted. The P63/mmc phase is the ground-state structure under ambient conditions, while C2/m and Cmca phases form at high pressure. The phase(More)
