Kang, Sin-Cheon ; Huh, Jin-Wook ; Lee, Sang-Hoon ; Jee, Tae-Young ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 747~752

Recently, skid steering methods have been increasingly applied to unmanned ground vehicles since they can provide a narrow turn that general steering methods like ackerman steering may not provide. However, dynamic behaviors of the skid steering vehicles with articulating arms which occur during a steering are very complicated and coupled. This makes it difficult to control vehicles and in severe case vehicles may loose stability. There are two methods to control unmanned ground vehicles. The first one is speed control method generally used with easiness and robustness in remote vehicle control. The next one is torque control allowing the vehicles to get better performance in several cases provided careful application is achieved. This paper addresses dynamic phenomena of skid steering vehicles during steering and compares with vehicle driving control methods between torque(traction force) control and speed control.

Shin, Young-Sug ; Kim, Seong-Tae ; Kim, Heon-Ju ; Kim, Jae-Young ; Hwang, Chul-Ho ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 768~773

The prediction method of future events using the time histories of velocity or pressure, etc., is a useful way for controlling various air vehicles. For example, the sensors of velocity or pressure can be used to extract the time mode coefficients of eigenmode of flow field, and then the result is applied to suppress wake or drag. The velocity information is mapped to the entire flow field, so this mapping function can be used to predict the future events based on the current information. The mapping function is composed of the huge amount of weight parameters, so the efficient way of finding these parameters is needed. Here, the neural network algorithm is studied to draw a mapping function using the number and location of velocity sensors.

Mine countermeasure missions(MCMs) may induce the loss of human and ship because of the covert of mine. In recent years, unmanned underwater vehicles(UUVs) have emerged as viable technical solution for conductimg underwater search, surveillance, and clearance operations in support of mine countermeasure missions because of her autonomy and long time endurance capability. This paper introduces a technical approach to mine countermeasure mission effectiveness analysis and presents some simulation-based analysis results for engineering of the UUV system definition which could be support analysis of alternatives for system definition and design.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 788~797
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.788
This paper analyzes the accuracy on the approach and landing of aircraft to an airport through comparison with airbase Precision Approach Radar and aircraft track data of DGPS equipped in aircraft. The proposed analysis result could be a basis for verifying the possibility that DGPS can be utilized in Airbase precision approach and landing. Position identification capability of widely used commercial DGPS is fairly accurate on latitude and longitude, while there is a slight error for being used in an airbase accurate approach and landing of Category I precision when it comes to altitude. Thus, we tested accuracy by analyzing actual flight track data of high performance aircraft to verify the accuracy of the airbase approach and landing using DGPS. Through the research, we developed instrumentation to compare PAR track data with DGPS track data, which can be used in reducing the number of PAR verification Flight utilizing it as a system measuring PAR accuracy at PAR installation phase.

Aircraft MLG and wing structures have been recognized as fatigue critical structures and exposed to the risk of fatigue crack initiation and propagation. Furthermore, these structures are frequently subjected to serious dynamic loading condition during a Hard Landing which may lead to their failure. Especially, structural integrity of MLG and wing components is decreased as the flight time increased because of the fatigue damage accumulated on the aircraft. In this study, the effects of Hard Landing on the MLG and wing components of aging aircraft were evaluated by using numerical approach. To achieve the aim, a finite element model has been developed and simulations were conducted by varying the landing conditions. As a result, it was revealed that the high stress concentration phenomenon was occurred at the lower Side Brace of MLG. Thereby, the intensified inspection for the lower Side Brace should be considered to prevent unexpected aircraft mishap.

Yu, Hyun ; Jung, Jun-Woo ; Lee, Jong-Kwan ; Lim, Jae-Sung ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 833~841
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.833
In this paper, we propose uncoordinated dynamic frequency(channel) allocation schemes based on cognitive radio in mobile cellular networks(MCNs). Under the assumptions that mobile base stations are equipped with cognitive radio(CR) function and they construct uncoordinated network, the proposed scheme enables the MCNs by suppression of successive channel switching and management of channel allocation in a dynamic and distributed manner. The proposed scheme is composed of two phase processes. In the first phase, highly orthogonal sequences are generated and assigned to mobile base stations. In the second phase, each mobile base station is allocated a channel according to the pre-assigned orthogonal sequences. Simulation results show that the number of successive spectrum switching is reduced significantly compared with the random switching scheme.

Lee, Sung-Jae ; Kim, Yong-Sun ; Han, Tae-Kyun ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 842~849
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.842
The transponder simulator designed to simulate the transponder of military satellite communication systems in the geostationary orbit is required to have time delay function, because of 250 ms delay time, when a radio wave transmits the distance of 36,000 km in free space. But, it is very difficult to develop 250 ms time delay device in the transponder simulator of 100 MHz bandwidth, due to unstable operation of FPGA, loss of memory data for the high speed rate signal processing. Up to date, bandwidth of the time delay device is limited to 45 MHz bandwidth. To solve this problem, we propose the new time delay techniques up to 100 MHz bandwidth without data loss. Proposed techniques are the low speed down scaling and high speed up scaling methods to read and write the external memory, and the matrix structure design of FPGA memory to treat data as high speed rate. We developed the satellite link simulator in 100 MHz bandwidth using the proposed new time delay techniques, implemented to the transponder simulator and verified the function of 265 ms time delay device in 100 MHz bandwidth.

Kim, Dong-Kyu ; Kang, Sung-Jin ; Han, Gyu-Sik ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 850~858
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.850
The risk analysis plays an important role in weapon system acquisition project due to uncertainties in the acquisition process. But in domestic, studies on risk analysis are insufficient and risk cost is not included in acquisition budget in policy. Therefore, in this study, we suggest a method that measures risk or success probability of project using the stochastic model. In particular, in order to calculate the success probability, we apply the joint probability distribution model of cost and schedule that are critical factors influencing the project risk. And also we verify the applicability of this model in Korean defence industry environment through case studies.

Cho, Cha-Hyun ; Yum, Bong-Jin ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 859~870
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.859
The purpose of this paper is to develop reliability analysis procedures for repairable systems with interval failure time data and apply the procedures for assessing the storage reliability of a subsystem of a certain type of guided missile. In the procedures, the interval failure time data are converted to pseudo failure times using the uniform random generation method, mid-point method or equispaced intervals method. Then, such analytic trend tests as Laplace, Lewis-Robinson, Pair-wise Comparison Nonparametric tests are used to determine whether the failure process follows a renewal or non-renewal process. Monte Carlo simulation experiments are conducted to compare the three conversion methods in terms of the statistical performance for each trend test when the underlying process is homogeneous Poisson, renewal, or non-homogeneous Poisson. The simulation results show that the uniform random generation method is best among the three. These results are applied to actual field data collected for a subsystem of a certain type of guided missile to identify its failure process and to estimate its mean time to failure and annual mean repair cost.

Kim, Young-An ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 880~887

The Wireless Mesh Network(WMN) technology is able to provide an infrastructure for isolated islands, in which it is difficult to install cables or wide area such as battlefield. Therefore, WMN is frequently used to satisfy needs for internet connection and active studies and research on them are in progress. However, as a result of increase in number of hops under hop-by-hop communication environment has caused a significant decrease in throughput and an increase in delay. Considering the heavy traffic of real-time data, such as voice or moving pictures to adaptive WMN, in a military environment. Such phenomenon might cause an issue in fairness index. In order to resolve this issue, we proposed a Cluster Based Multi-channel Assignment Scheme(CB-MAS) for adaptive tactical wireless mesh network. In the CB-MAS, the communication between the Cluster-Head(CH) and cluster number nodes uses a channel has no effect on channels being used by the inter-CH links. Therefore, the CB-MAS can minimize the interference within multi-channel environments. Our Simulation results showed that CB-MAS achieves improved the throughput and fairness index in WMN.

Chang, Il-Ho ; Hong, Suk-Hwan ; Back, Seung-Jun ; Son, Young-Kap ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 888~896
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.888
A white smoke hand grenade, KM8 is used to make smoke screen in order to provide visual field interceptions or signals. The grenade fails when its time to emit smoke is longer than the specified emission time so that the smoke concentration becomes lighter. This paper considered failure in smoke emission time, and evaluated its storage lifetime. The main objective of this paper is to modify the present specification limits of smoke emission time for the efficient process control in manufacturing, through analyzing effect of its specification change on the storage lifetime, based on the lifetime evaluation results. Accelerated degradation test was performed and then failure in smoke emission time was reproduced from the test. And estimated storage lifetimes from the accelerated test results was compared to evaluated lifetimes of grenades using the ASRP data. Past process testing results of the grenade in manufacturing were analyzed in this paper. Then, each storage lifetime for the specifications,
in seconds, extended from the current specification in manufacturing were estimated using the past testing results, and compared to one another.

Choi, Sung-Ho ; Kim, Chung-Seok ; Jhang, Kyung-Young ; Shin, Wan-Soon ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 897~903
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.897
The objective of this study is to investigate the thermal behavior on material surface and the variation in the surface morphology of aluminum 6061 alloy by the Nd:YAG pulsed-laser irradiation. First, we predicted the surface temperature variation during pulsed-laser irradiation by using the two dimensional finite element analysis. When the pulsed-laser of 133 mJ energy and 5 ns pulse duration is irradiated on the surface of aluminum alloy, the material surface is thought to be melting because the surface temperature rises steadily up to about
exceeding the melting point. Also, the experimental results show that the solidification microstructure has been developed clearly after surface melting. Second, the diameter of melted zone was analysed by finite element analysis and measured by OM(Optical Microscopy). It increased logarithmically with increase in the number of laser irradiation. In addition, AFM(Atomic Force Microscopy) measurement showed an increase in the average surface roughness during pulsed-laser irradiation.
M&S Tool for Analysis of Detection Coverage and Target Localization in Bistatic Radar Systems
Park, Jung-Hee ; Lee, Won-Woo ; Yoo, Jin-Cheol ; Yang, Hoon-Gee ; Chung, Young-Seek ; Bae, Kyung-Bin ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 904~912
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.904
In this paper, we have proposed a M&S tool for analyzing detection coverage and target localization in bistatic radar system. The detection coverage determined by radar parameters is meaningful when it satisfies the clear line-of-sight condition. We improved the method to find the minimum altitudes of transmitter and receiver for meeting the condition by considering three-dimensional coverage. Its computational burden is not problematic because the calculation is for maximizing the performance of the radar and does not demand a real-time operation. In addition, target localization on three-dimensional earth model based on the information of the height, longitude, and latitude is proposed instead of the previous unpractical calculation on two-dimensional bistatic plane. Its precalculated result can reduce its computation burden and it is suitable for real-time estimation of target location.
An Efficient Event Detection Algorithm using Spatio-Temporal Correlation in Surveillance Reconnaissance Sensor Networks
Yeo, Myung-Ho ; Kim, Yong-Hyun ; Kim, Hun-Kyu ; Lee, Noh-Bok ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 913~919
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.913
In this paper, we present a new efficient event detection algorithm for sensor networks with faults. We focus on multi-attributed events, which are sets of data points that correspond to interesting or unusual patterns in the underlying phenomenon that the network monitors. Conventional algorithms cannot detect some events because they treat only their own sensor readings which can be affected easily by environmental or physical problem. Our approach exploits spatio-temporal correlation of sensor readings. Sensor nodes exchange a fault-tolerant code encoded their own readings with neighbors, organize virtual sensor readings which have spatio-temporal correlation, and determine a result for multi-attributed events from them. In the result, our proposed algorithm provides improvement of detecting multi-attributed events and reduces the number of false-negatives due to negative environmental effects.

Nerve agents are irreversible inhibitors of the cholinesterase enzyme. Exposure causes a progression of toxic signs, including hypersecretions, fasciculations, tremor, convulsions, respiratory distress, epileptiform seizures, brain injuries and death. A combined regimen of prophylaxis and therapy is the most effective medical countermeasure for dealing with the threat of nerve agent poisoning to military personnel. In this paper, the author investigated the updated technologies regarding various pre- and post-treatment drugs for nerve agents detoxification which are under development in several countries including Korea. Some characteristics of active ingredients in the formulations of drugs, their action mechanisms, and effectiveness were analyzed. Additionally, part of experimental data on the transdermal patch studied in ADD using beagle dogs was introduced.

This study describes computational simulation results in 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional space concerning large scale gap test(LSGT) by using commercial hydrocode such as AUTODYN and LS-DYNA to analyze the detonation phenomenons of high explosives. To consider the possibilities of LSGT simulation, we used Lee - Tarver reaction rate model of PBX-9404 and Comp-B which were implemented AUTODYN`s material library. Also we have tried the diverse numerical schemes such as Lagrangian, Eulerian and ALE(Arbitary Lagrangian Eulerian), SPH(Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) in LSGT simulations. After LSGT simulations, we compared the simulation results with published results to verify the LSGT simulations. According to the LSGT simulations, we have concluded as follows. In 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional space, Lagrangian solver provided the most reliable results based on analysis time and accuracy. When using two hydrocodes in 2-dimensional space, the simulation results are almost same except one explosive model. We have verified the modeling method and simulation results of the LSGT by using the commenrcial hydrocode in this study.

This paper deals with the consensus problem for multi-agent linear dynamic systems with directed communication topology. All the agents are identical high-order linear systems and their state information is exchanged through a communication network with directed graph. It is shown that a consensus is achieved if there exists a feasible solution to a set of linear matrix inequalities obtained for a simultaneous stabilization problem for multiple systems. Examples are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 948~956
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.948
In this paper, mechanism design of the explosive ordnance disposal(EOD) manipulator for small unmanned ground vehicle(SUGV) is presented from the conceptual to detailed design. EOD manipulator has been widely developed in the world due to the growing threat of the improvised explosive devices at war. It has distinctive characteristics, such as small size and high loading performance, compared to the industrial manipulator which is fixed on the floor. Design of new EOD manipulator must take into account various functional requirements and constraints simultaneously. We focused on developing the EOD manipulator that has suitable size for the SUGV and maximum 15kg payload capacity. Design approach taken in this paper is based on axiomatic design procedure and comparison among many possible candidates of each joint structure to obtain appropriate entire structure of EOD manipulator.

Kim, Woo-Ram ; Choi, Youn-Dae ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 14, issue 5, 2011, Pages 957~964
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2011.14.5.957
New time schemes based on the FEM were developed and their performances were tested with 2D wave equation. The least-squares and weighted residual methods are used to construct new time schemes based on traditional residual minimization method. To overcome some drawbacks that time schemes based on the least-squares and weighted residual methods have, ad-hoc method is considered to minimize residuals multiplied by others residuals as a new approach. And variational method is used to get necessary conditions of ad-hoc minimization. A-stability was chosen to check the stability of newly developed time schemes. Specific values of new time schemes are presented along with their numerical solutions which were compared with analytic solution.
