Processors have long been the leading edge of integration and process technology and this year's papers emphatically demonstrate that this is still the case. This year's crop of processors exhibit astounding increases in chip integration levels with
Analog techniques continues to defy simple categories. This session illustrates the diversity and vigor of modern analog circuitry. Entries span the range of linear regulators, Class-D audio, references and oscillators. New frontiers of precision, po
Analog technology continues to defy simple categories. This session illustrates the diversity and vigor of modern analog circuitry. The common thread among the various papers is the improvement of energy efficiency for the various applications. Senso
Presents an overview of current design techniques for operational amplifiers implemented in CMOS and NMOS technology at a tutorial level. Primary emphasis is placed on CMOS amplifiers because of their more widespread use. Factors affecting voltage ga
The traditional reliability evaluation assesses the long-term performance of power system but its constant failure rate cannot reflect the time-varying performances in an operational time frame. This paper studies the operational reliability of power
We present the results of the BioCreative II.5 evaluation in association with the FEBS Letters experiment, where authors created Structured Digital Abstracts to capture information about protein-protein interactions. The BioCreative II.5 challenge ev

The Connection Machine model CM-5 provides high performance and ease of use for large data-intensive applications. The CM-5 architecture is designed to scale to teraflops performance on terabyte-sized problems. SPARC-based processing nodes, each with
Provides an overview of a step-by-step approach for developing the operational profile used in software reliability engineering. The operational profile can help guide managerial and engineering decisions throughout the product life cycle, including
Indonesia has several isolated power system grids due to the geographical condition which consist thousands of island spread along We Island in the west to the Merauke Island in the east. This condition constraints this country to seize its electrici
The Operational Control Center represents the largest component in the Ariane 5 ground segment. It handles all interface management between the Ariane launcher and ground facilities during launch preparation phases. It ensures information exchange be
The author describes the form, assembly, test, and operation of the SKYNET 4 antenna farm. Particular attention is given to the antenna and antenna farm alignment, environmental testing, and radiation performance measurements. It is demonstrated that
The continuing demand for higher bandwidth and lower power dissipation requires extremely efficient analog design techniques. An overview of these techniques is given for the design of input stages, output stages, frequency compensation and overall d

In this short paper, we present a Software-Defined Radio testbed for multi-node simulations. This testbed was created with the goals of providing repeatable simulations, while reducing development time of SDR implementations. To provide an accessible
Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) are developing the KOMPSAT-5 system of which primary payload is X band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). The program overview, mission and system characteristics of KOMPSAT-5 are described in this paper.
Mobile devices have limited resources including short battery life, storage capacity and processor performance. This limits the applications that can run on it. Mobile applications can be partitioned so that some of the application runs on a cloud. T
The superconducting stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) started plasma operation in December 2015 after the commissioning phase of the machine. The main technical and diagnostic systems have been finished successfully. The timing system is an importan
An all-enhancement operational amplifier operating at 5 V and comprising 16 n-type amorphous indium-gallium-zinc-oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs) is fabricated on a 50 μm thick flexible polyimide substrate. The operational amplifier has an open loo
This paper presents the control strategy for 5-link biped robot consisting of an underactuated floating trunk and rigid legs. Controlling legged system is challenging due to the underactuated floating bases and the dynamic changes of contact states.

Buying a Service – an operator’s perspective
Ownership is nothing – capability is everything.
Does the service deliver? – The required range of SATCOM capability. – Equipment in sufficient quantity. – The right communications services. – Support that can be relied on. – Training that delivers independence. – Assurance that the service will be available.
Is the Service responsive and accountable? – Addressing poor service. – Delivering new services.
A Policy Framework
Commercial realities: – It’s the contract stupid. – Exclusive Market Definition. – Single source with some exceptions.
New MOD Policy: – MILSATCOM vs COMSATCOM – Early entry and warfighting operations. – The transition to peacekeeping. – Addressing resilience and redundancy. – The primacy of the operational commander.
Assurance – the MILSATCOM premium
MOD Policy – assured access to Space.
High Assurance delivered by guaranteed service levels: – Hardened, advanced SKYNET 5 satellites. – Anti-jam modem. – Pre-emptive restoration. – Redundancy. – Assured capacity. – Response to stress. – Terminal availability.
COMMERCIAL SATCOM – balance the risks
The attractions of commercial SATCOM – Global Mobile SATCOM Services. – Capacity – when available. – Satellite and technology refresh rate. – Size (which does matter!)
But assurance……. – Response to stress ? – Sovereignty ? – Pre-emption ? – Security ?
