Object representation in computer vision : International NSF-ARPA Workshop, New York City, NY, USA, December 5-7, 1994 : proceedings by Martial Hebert( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 323 libraries worldwide
This book documents the scientific outcome of the International NSF-ARPA Workshop on Object Representation in Computer Vision, held in New York City in December 1994 with invited participants chosen among the recognized experts in the field. The volume presents the complete set of papers in revised full-length versions. In addition, the first paper is a report on the workshop in which the panel discussions as well as the conclusions and recommendations reached by the workshop participants are summarized. Altogether the volume provides an excellent, in-depth view of the state of the art in this active area of research and applications
Mass transport in oxides; proceedings of a symposium held at Gaithersburg, Maryland, October 22-25, 1967 by J. B Wachtman( Book )
3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
Analysis of random drop for gateway congestion control by Eman Salaheddin Hashem( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
An approach to replicated databases for robust command and control by Iris Kameny( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
This report presents an approach to making future command and control data more timely and robust through the use of replicated distributed data management techniques. The report includes "situational awareness" data needed by Army tactical commanders from platoon through corps, including mission plan and progress, represented as machine-processable operation orders, enemy situation, and friendly situation and status. The conceptual solution described in the report would give warfighters near-real-time common pictures of the battlefield for situational awareness in spite of communication delays due to jamming and congestion, network partitioning, node failures, and other hostile actions that might interfere with the rapid dissemination of data
An optical signal processing model for the interferometric fiber optic gyro by Joseph M Aein( Book )
in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
This report presents the results of a communication theoretic model used to analyze the operation of Interferometric Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (IFOG). The IFOG is an all-solid-state rotation-rate sensor employed in miniature inertial measurement units (MIMU). The IFOG can achieve a navigation grade of performance (0.01 degree/hour drift rate) and offers the considerable advantage of reducing instrument costs by a factor of two or more over the current ring laser gyroscope (RLG) technology base. A simplified classical propagation model is used to describe the optical beams employed. Optical signal modulation is impressed with the following goals: (1) increase the linearity of the rotation-rate measurement and (2) mitigate the deleterious effects of the optical scatter noise unavoidably generated by the desired light beams as they traverse the optical pathways of the IFOG. This report deals with goal (1) above. The following are analyzed: (1) AC bias modulation used to linearize the IFOG instrument; (2) closed-loop, feedback operation to extend the dynamic range; and (3) serrodyne operation. The analysis establishes the performance relationships among the appropriate optical signal parameters and allows for their optimization
Proceedings by Symposium on Engineering Applications of Holography( Book )
9 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 143 libraries worldwide
The RAND Advanced Simulation Language project's declarative modeling formalism (DMOD) by Jeff Rothenberg( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
This report discusses research by the RAND Advanced Simulation Language (RASL) project. The goal of this project was to develop knowledge-based modeling techniques that integrate simulation and planning in order to answer strategic mobility questions that go beyond the "What if...?" capabilities of traditional simulation: questions such as "Can a given event ever happen?" "Under what conditions will an event happen?" or "How can a desired result be achieved?" The report presents an in-depth description of the Declarative MODeling formalism (DMOD) that was developed by the RASL project. DMOD can be thought of as an attempt to formulate a logical description of the event-scheduling view of discrete-event simulation. Formal proofs of the soundness and completeness of the DMOD approach are presented, along with a number of detailed examples of how to perform modeling using DMOD

New methods for robust science and technology planning by Robert J Lempert( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 130 libraries worldwide
RAND researchers have conducted a successful proof-of-concept demonstration for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of two new methods for science and technology (S & T) planning. These methods--HyperForum, a facilitated Web-based collaborative exercise, conducted in a carefully crafted, information-rich, online environment, and Exploratory Modeling, a new approach to generating systematic, quantitative comparisons among alternative policy decisions without relying on imperfect predictions of the future--exploit new information technologies in order to : improve the quality of the S & T planning process by using online computer-assisted decision-support tools that (1) make relevant information more easily available to expert panelists meeting over the World Wide Web, and (2) help panelists include and compensate for the effects of uncertainty by treating an S & T plan as a portfolio of technology investments hedged against a wide range of plausible futures; provide a lasting electronic archive of the expert discussions and other information that go into building an S & T plan; lower the travel-related costs and scheduling constraints of the current planning process by supplementing face-to-face expert panel meetings with asynchronous meetings over the World Wide Web. This documented briefing describes that demonstration. It should be of interest to decisionmakers responsible for choosing, managing, and justifying portfolios of science and technology research projects in the Department of Defense and other federal agencies, and in the private sector. In addition, it should be informative to those readers intereste
