About the IEEE Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society Newsletter
 
 

Dear AESS Members,

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected our lives in the last months, and regretfully we expect that to continue for some time.

Nevertheless, the big AESS community has reacted swiftly and pragmatically, by deploying alternative processes to keep offering the highest level of services to its members. This is for example the case of virtual conferences and distinguished lectures.

Have a look at recent happenings in the first edition of the QEB for 2021. In this one you will find information relevant to both the 4th qtr. of 2020 and early 2021.

 
 
I really hope that you all are doing well and we can soon meet together….in a 3D version!

Warmest regards,
Fabiola Colone

The History Column
 
 
by Hugh Griffiths
 
 

The fifth event in this series of notable historical events of interest to AESS is the first operational use of chaff, on 23 July 1943. Chaff is the name given to the radar countermeasure in which a cloud of metal strips is deployed, each of length approximately half the wavelength of the victim radar, so that each behaves as a dipole. This produces a large, diffuse false target which persists for some time as the strips flutter to ground.

Radar Systems Panel
Shannon Blunt, Chair 2020 | Nathan Goodman, Chair 2021

The IEEE Radar Systems Panel (RSP) serves this Technical Community by overseeing the world's flagship conferences in the field, serving as editorial staff for radar's home in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace & Electronic Systems Journal, educating the radar workforce, and managing radar standards. With continued advances driven by the digital revolution, radar is truly experiencing a renaissance that is opening new vistas in myriad civil applications, increasingly sophisticated defense applications, and addressing the growing congestion of spectrum. Indeed, the explosion of low-cost, software-driven technologies is ushering in a "home-grown" era of radar research that will ultimately lead to a previously unseen degree of innovation crowdsourcing. Consequently, it is more important than ever that the RSP engages with a diverse population of the radar community, and individuals interested in serving should reach out to current members to learn how they can participate.

Glue Technologies for Space Systems Panel
Claudio Sacchi, Chair

Our panel intends to promote the activities of AESS in the interdisciplinary field of “Glue Technologies.” The panel aims at bringing in the community a renewed systemic vision of telecommunications encompassing various and heterogeneous space technologies in a unified framework targeting the evolution to future “Space 2.0” vision.

An updated list of the panel topics is as follows:
  • Broadband space transmissions.
  • Softwarization of space networking.
  • Internet of Remote Things (IoRT) and Internet of Space Things (IoST).
  • Seamless integration of intelligent aerial networks with cognitive and softwarized sky networks.
  • Augmented 3D reality for manned exploration missions (e.g., on Mars).
  • End-to-end system considerations of space systems.
  • Integrated communication, navigation, and sensing.
  • Advanced signal processing and data fusion techniques for Space applications.
You are encouraged to join the panel, writing an email to myself (claudio.sacchi@unitn.it), to the panel vice-chair Michael Noble (noble@ieee.org) and, in c.c., to the panel secretary Riccardo Bassoli (riccardo.bassoli@tu-dresden.de). The affiliation to IEEE (and to AESS) is welcome, but not required to join.

Avionics Systems Panel
Aloke Roy, Chair 2020 | Roberto Sabatini, Chair 2021

The Avionics Systems Panel (ASP) addresses technology research, innovation, education, and standards for avionics systems for all manned and unmanned commercial, military, and general aviation operations. The avionics system functions include communications; command and control; navigation; surveillance; traffic management; and space systems (launch vehicles, spacecraft and satellites). This is a transformational realm for avionics systems design and development due to the introduction of artificial intelligence and machine learning into avionics for autonomous aircraft. The ASP can provide opportunities for members to collaborate across industry, government and academia as well as participate in the management and organization of the two leading avionics conferences that are jointly sponsored by IEEE and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). We welcome individuals who want to be the future shapers of the aviation and space sectors. Individuals interested in participating should contact the chair at roberto.sabatini@rmit.edu.au.

Gyro and Accelerometer Panel
Randall Curey, Chair

The Gyro and Accelerometer Panel (GAP) is a long standing group of dedicated individuals whose contributions to the inertial sensors and systems body of standards benefit the inertial community at large. The GAP has existed for almost 60 years and has two standing committees; one for systems and one for sensors. The GAP develops and maintains a growing body of inertial sensor and system standards; 14 published standards and one in development. The GAP provides the opportunity for the inertial community to develop long term relationships and networking capabilities across academia, developers, users and customers. Participation in the GAP discussions provides a learning opportunity to hear diverse perspectives on how specifications are developed, which allows early-career professionals insight into the physics, the mathematics and the application. The GAP enables fellow professionals to engage with others in the inertial field for education, awareness and camaraderie. To that end, a number of unsponsored retirees continue to participate in the GAP activities. Individuals interested in participating should contact the chair at randall.curey@ieee.org.

Navigation Systems Panel
Michael Braasch, Chair

The purpose of the Panel is to sustain and oversee the programs of the IEEE/ION Position, Location and Navigation Symposium (PLANS); promote and support publications in the domain of Navigation; and to encourage the submission of nominations for IEEE Fellows and Senior Members in the domain of Navigation. The Panel is composed of a variety of representatives of industry, government laboratories, educational institutions and professional societies who are active in the domain of Navigation.

The panel works with the U.S. Institute of Navigation (ION) and the PLANS Executive Committee to select and support volunteers for PLANS including track chairs, session chairs and the like. The panel promotes the submission of navigation manuscripts to the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems and the AESS Systems Magazine.

Those working in the navigation area and interested in supporting the panel’s activities are encouraged to contact the panel chair: Dr. Michael Braasch: braaschm@ohio.edu.

Cyber Security Panel
Kathleen Kramer, Chair

The AESS Cyber Security panel promotes and supports cyber security technical activities in those aspects of cyber security relevant to complex systems for space, air, ocean, or ground environments, particularly those that apply to aviation and aerospace.

The panel organized a series of local, virtual meetings with AESS Distinguished Lecturers and panelists in a Summer Series to chapters and sections with an aim at better serving and motivating local member interests, beginning on June 24, with an AESS Distinguished Lectures on “Information Assurance” by Kathleen Kramer and, presented on Date, “Aerospace Cyber Physical and Autonomous Systems”, by Roberto Sabatini and finished off the summer with “How Radar Helped with WWII” by Eli Brookner. Each was offered to multiple chapters and culminated in hundreds of attendees worldwide for the final Boston-based lecture.

In its latest Educational initiative, IEEE AESS has organized a Webinar Series of Distinguished Lectures for the Fall, and the Cyber Panel is represented in each of the four series, that began in September and concludes, with Cyber-panel related talks on 24 September, 19 November, and 3 December.

The panel interests align with three AESS conferences for 2020, however each of these has had to go virtual and or postpone its in-person events to 2021. The panel met via teleconference in July.

Are you active in cyber security and interested in participating on this panel? Are you interested in organizing or attending a local meeting in the summer virtual series? Please contact the panel chair, Prof. Kathleen Kramer.
