    TinyPack XML: Real Time XML Compression for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Wireless networks possess significant limitations in bandwidth. Additionally, real-time networks cannot tolerate high latency. While some good XML compression algorithms exist, there remains a need for methods that reduce latency and bandwidth usage further in real time wireless applications. This paper presents a new compression scheme which reduces bandwidth while...

    Altitude Estimation of Maneuvering Targets in MIMO Over-the-Horizon Radar

    Target altitude estimation is an important problem in Over-The-Horizon Radar (OTHR) systems for target tracking and classification. Narrow signal bandwidth and rich propagation environment in OTHR render this problem difficult and challenging. In this paper, the authors develop a novel technique that allows accurate altitude estimation for a maneuvering target...

    V2E: Combining Hardware Virtualization and Software Emulation for Transparent and Extensible Malware Analysis

    A transparent and extensible malware analysis platform is essential for defeating malware. This platform should be transparent so malware cannot easily detect and bypass it. It should also be extensible to provide strong support for heavyweight instrumentation and analysis efficiency. However, no existing platform can meet both requirements. Leveraging hardware...

    Integrated Information and Network Management for End-to-End Quality of Service

    Information Management (IM) services provide key technology for net-centric operations by enabling the active discovery, management, and dissemination of information based on content and metadata, through a publish/subscribe/query paradigm that decouples information producers and consumers. Publish-subscribe-based Information Management (IM) services provide a key enabling technology for net-centric operations. This paper...

    Cognitive Code-Division Links With Blind Primary-System Identification

    The authors consider the problem of cognitive code-division channelization (simultaneous power and code-channel allocation) for secondary transmission links co-existing with an unknown primary Code-Division Multiple-Access (CDMA) system. They first develop a blind primary-user identification scheme to detect the binary code sequences (signatures) utilized by primary users. To create a secondary...

    A Cyber Physical Systems Solution for Real-time and Reliable Information Dissemination in Intelligent Transportation Systems

    Timely and reliable dissemination of traffic-related information to drivers is a key property that Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) should support. Numerous impediments, however, lead to unpredictability in the timely and reliable dissemination of information to drivers, including physical factors, such as mobility and speed of vehicles, density of vehicles, characteristics...
