Recently, DRDC Valcartier has been investigating novel ground-based longwave hyperspectral imaging (HSI) remote sensing techniques. Specific projects include the development of a new ground-based sensor called MoDDIFS (Multi-Option Differential...

Current airborne LWIR HSI remote sensing activities at Defence R&D CanadaValcartier
2010 Edition, June 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Recently, DRDC Valcartier has been investigating longwave hyperspectral imaging (HSI) remote sensing techniques using airborne sensors. There is currently an initiative to test the commercially available ground-based Hyper-Cam HSI system, developed by...

The Application of Holonic Control to Tactical Sensor Management
2006 Edition, January 1, 2006 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper, we report on the project initiated by Defense R&D Canada -Valcartier that is intended as a vehicle to assess holonic control as a means of improving tactical sensor management for distributed military surveillance operations. Three levels of sensor...

Remote detection of aluminum and trace methane using mobile femtosecond laser system of T&T Lab
2009 Edition, May 1, 2009 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We report two remote sensing experiments of aluminum in the winter time and trace methane in the summer time using the mobile femtosecond laser facility T&T (Terawatt & Terahertz) designed by the Defence R&D Canada-Valcartier (DRDC-Valcartier) [1]....

IoT Down on the Farm
February 1, 2017 - IEEE GlobalSpec

The Internet of Things isn't just moving into the factory. It's finding a home on the farm as well. Agricultural IoT systems make use of sensing, connectivity, and analytics to increase farm yields and/or reduce inputs such as water, pesticides, and fertilizers, according to Laura Lee, a...

Radical Change in Transportation: Hyperloop One Nears a Milestone
March 14, 2017 - IEEE GlobalSpec

High-speed trains have been part of some landscapes for decades. Japan's high-speed bullet trains traverse the country at speeds of up to 320 kilometers per hour, or about 200 miles per hour. In October 2016, a maglev (magnetic levitation) train in Japan established a world record for train...

How Engineers Can Adapt Infrastructure Design for a Changing Climate
February 13, 2017 - IEEE GlobalSpec

(Editor's note: In mid-February 2017, winter precipitation filled Lake Oroville north of California's capital, Sacramento, putting exceptional pressure on the Oroville Dam. The dam is a 770-foot-tall (230 meters) embankment dam that dates from 1968. The feared failure of the dam's spillway after a...

Drone Tech Flies High
February 25, 2016 - IEEE GlobalSpec

A drone in every garage? Not quite yet, but the popularity of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) has reached the point where the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration in 2015 ruled that registration will be required for drones. The FAA estimates that 1.6 million drones were sold in the U.S. alone in 2015,...

PLATON: Satellite remote sensing and telecommunication by using millimetre waves
2012 Edition, October 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Nowadays, climate and meteorology assumed a fundamental role in manifold domains with the aim to understand how they affect life in modern society. Such a new sensitivity is the result of a major awareness of the Earth health and the need of better understanding the increasing climatic and...

Detection and Estimation With RADARSAT-2 Moving-Object Detection Experiment Modes
2012 Edition, Volume 50, September 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This paper describes in detail several multichannel variants of the famous displaced phase center antenna (DPCA) method suitable for spaceborne multichannel synthetic aperture radar ground moving target indication (GMTI), which has become available through the RADARSAT-2 moving-object...
