Lee, Sang Hoon ; Huh, Jin Wook ; Kang, Sincheon ; Lee, Myung Chun ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 721~728

The tracked SUGVs(Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles) are frequently operated in the narrow slope such as stairs and trails. But due to the nature of the tracked vehicle which is steered using friction between the track and the ground and the limited field of view of driving cameras mounted on the lower position, it is not easy for SUGVs to trace narrow slopes. To properly trace inclined narrows, it is very important for SUGVs to keep it's heading direction to the slope. As a matter of factor, no roll value control of a SUGV can makes it's heading being located in the direction of the slope in general terrains. But, the problem is that we cannot directly control roll motion for SUGV. Instead we can control yaw motion. In this paper, a new slope driving method that enables the vehicle trace the narrow slopes with IMU sensor usually mounted in the SUGV is suggested which including an estimation technique of the desired yaw angle corresponding to zero roll angle. In addition, a fuzzy steering controller robust to changes in driving speed and the stair geometry is designed to simulate narrow slope driving with the suggested method. It is shown that the suggested method is quite effective through the simulation.

In case that multiple jammers are transmitting the signals which are the same type a general algorithm based on TDOA method cannot estimate the positions of multiple jammers because there are many TDOA measurements including true and false values. This paper, therefore, designs a new algorithm based on TDOA method to localize multiple jammers. In this algorithm, TDOA measurements are obtained by rotating the reference sensor, and then the positions of multiple jammers can be estimated by detecting congregated point among the multiple estimated positions from TDOA measurements. Through computer simulations, it is verified that this algorithm localizes the multiple jammers well. The performance of the algorithm are also analysed by changing the distance between sensors and jammer, and sampling frequency.

Aircraft battle damage repair(ABDR) is emergency repair method for the damaged aircraft in battle field. The main purpose of the ABDR is to increase the readiness of fighter aircraft during wartime. While many studies have been conducted to develop ABDR method, few efforts have focused on evaluation of damage and determination of the size of hole caused by enemy's anti-aircraft artillery attack. The aim of this study is essentially to quantify damage of aircraft wing attacked by anti-aircraft artillery. The computer simulations was performed to accomplish this goal. A number of simulations have been carried out to compare size of damages under various attack conditions. In conclusion, it was revealed that the size of damage varied depending on the type and direction of cannonball. Furthermore, in this paper, the proper path sizes are suggested for different damage conditions.

ROK military helicopters are frequently exposed to the hazard situations due to the characteristic of operation. Especially, helicopter accident may lead to critical damage of human and structure. Accordingly, pilots have to train the autorotation procedures and learn the skill to prevent hard landing. In this paper, the behavior of skid gear subject to the helicopter autorotation was conducted by using numerical method. The computer simulation approach by using finite element method was employed to accomplish this goal. Additionally, the behavior of skid gear was evaluated for the different landing conditions. In conclusion, the maximum stress concentration was occurred at the attached area of skid cross-tube to the fuselage. Also, it was revealed that the most proper attitude was level landing to prevent hard landing.

To improve the efficiency and economics of national defence, the needs for defence M&S systems are greatly increased, but the lack of interoperability and reusability lowers the level of reliability in the existing simulations models. Recently, many research activities have been performed and some conceptual models, such as CMMS, DCMF, and KAMA, were introduced. However, these models don't support the whole process of defence M&S system development nor provide integrated domain knowledge and up-to-date data. In this paper, we analyzed the analysts' guidances and doctrines, which are the basic ingredients for the simulation system development, and proposed a systematic structure for all the defence M&S stakeholders to share the standardized domain knowledge, modeling algorithm and data. This will be a logical bridge between Mission Space and Simulation Space, and provide substantial data sets to build simulation systems.

Kim, Yong-Hyun ; Yeo, Myung-Ho ; Chung, Kwangsue ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 761~769
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2012.15.6.761
In this paper, we propose a low-power design strategy to minimize energy-consumption for surveillance and reconnaissance sensor networks. The sensor network consists of many different nodes with various operations such as target detection, packet relay, video monitoring, changing protocols, and etc. Each sensor node consists of sensing, computing, communication, and power components. These components are integrated on a single or multiple boards. Therefore, the power consumption of each component can be different on various operation types. First, we identified the list of components and measured power consumption for them from the first prototype nodes. Next, we focus on which components are the main sources of energy consumption. We propose many energy-efficient approaches to reduce energy consumption for each operation type.
Constructing κ-redundant Data Delivery Structure for Multicast in a Military Hybrid Network
Bang, June-Ho ; Cho, Young-Jong ; Kang, Kyungran ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 770~778
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2012.15.6.770
In this paper, we propose a multi-path construction scheme to improve the survivability of a multicast session in military hybrid networks. A military hybrid network consists of a static backbone network and multiple mobile stub networks where some nodes are frequently susceptible to be disconnected due to link failure and node mobility. To improve the survivability of multicast sessions, we propose a construction scheme of
redundant multi-paths to each receiver. In order to take account of different characteristics of static and mobile networks, we propose quite different multi-path setup approaches for the backbone and stub networks, respectively, and combine them at the boundary point called gateway. We prove that our proposed scheme ensures that each receiver of a multicast session has
redundant paths to the common source. Through simulations, we evaluate the performance of the proposed schemes from three aspects : network survivability, recovery cost, and end-to-end delay.
Analysis of Frequency Characteristics for the Finite Frequency Selective Surface with the Consideration of Curvature Effect
Hong, Ic-Pyo ; Chun, Heung-Jae ; Lee, Myung-Gun ; Jung, Yong-Sik ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 779~785
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2012.15.6.779
In this paper, we have analyzed the curvature effects of the finite FSS(frequency selective surface) using the 3-D method of moment using the BiCGSTab algorithm as an iterative method. To validate the analysis method in this paper, we compared the RCS(radar cross section) of PEC(perfect electric conductor) sphere with theoretical results and it shows well agreements. The tripole slot FSSs which have many application in military were selected for the investigation of curvature effect and RCS as a frequency characteristics were observed with the variation of the curvature rate. Simulation results shows that curvature effect can significant effect the passband frequency and bandwidth of FSS. We suggest that the curvature effect must be considered at the stage of design FSS application like FSS radome.
A Study on Improvement Method of Interoperability Test & Evaluation Approach for the C4I Systems in NCW Environment
Kim, Kyung-Hee ; Kang, Seok-Joong ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 786~801
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2012.15.6.786
The most essential ROC(requirement operational capability) in order to assure the effectiveness of the C4I Systems in NCW Environments is the seamless and stable interoperability between systems. The U.S. Armed Forces that perceived the importance of interoperability, prepared the framework to apply from the proposal of requirement to every step of acquisition process. The Korea Joint Chiefs of Staff is also developing a similar system in order to assure the interoperability between command control(C4I) systems. In the paper, we specify the needs of standardization of test systems and international trends on the technology, and propose an interoperability test & evaluation system based on a standardization conformity method to improve the interoperability test & evaluation for the C4I systems in NCW environments. Finally we show an example of the implementation of the test system and its application to C4I systems to verify the proposed test system.

Kim, Hae-Yean ; Byun, Jae-Jung ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 802~811
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2012.15.6.802
This study proposes an OMS/MP preparation methodology using a simulation method instead of a survey method. We applied our methodology to the next generation detection radar, providing reasonable peace- and war-time OMS/MP values. Based on these results, we propose the process to calculate RAM objective values. The previous survey method required to supplement its method since the method used data from a similar weapon system. In addition, the previous method didn't provide enough reliability for the future weapon system. Instead of using the previous survey method, we propose to use war game simulation, which provides a better OMS/MP values. Based on these results, we propose the logical consecutive process that prepares combat and simulation scenarios, peace- and war-time OMS/MP values and RAM objective values.

Kim, Kwan Sung ; Lee, Min Joon ; Jung, Chang Sik ; Yeom, Dong Jin ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 15, issue 6, 2012, Pages 812~819
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2012.15.6.812
Interference and jamming are becoming increasing concern to a radar system nowdays. AESA(Active Electronically Steered Array) antennas and adaptive beamforming(ABF), in which antenna beam patterns can be modified to reject the interference, offer a potential solution to overcome the problems encountered. In this paper, we've developed a planar active phased array radar system, in which ABF, target detection and tracking algorithm operate in real-time. For the high output power and the low noise figure of the antenna, we've designed the S-band TRMs based on GaN HEMT. For real-time processing, we've used wavelenth division multiplexing technique on fiber optic communication which enables rapid data communication between the antenna and the signal processor. Also, we've implemented the HW and SW architecture of Real-time Signal Processor(RSP) for adaptive beamforming that uses SMI(Sample Matrix Inversion) technique based on MVDR(Minimum Variance Distortionless Response). The performance of this radar system has been verified by near-field and far-field tests.

For the development of reliable thermal batteries, electrolyte is quite important because it is closely related to the performance and stability of thermal batteries. This paper describes general image processing method used for the inspection of molten-salt based electrolyte disk and also describes how we can apply this image processing method to the inspection of thermal battery electrolyte. Moreover we have found optimized image processing conditions to improve the discriminating ability of compaction defects such as non-uniform parts in an electrolyte.

Passengers and mounted equipments on a vehicle are exposed to the vibration when it is driven on the road. To minimize the vibration and improve the dynamic characteristics of a vehicle are important factors. Those are changed by modifying parameters of the vehicle. To save development cost and time, simulation methods using vibration model have been widely used before making the real vehicle. In this paper two aimed functions, displacement between wheels and the body and acceleration of the body, have been defined for the parameter sensitivity analysis of the large vehicle. Full Vehicle Model having 11 degrees of freedom applied to solve those issues.
