AbstractIEEE 802.11e is an amendment of the medium-access control (MAC) layer of the standard for wireless local area networking IEEE 802.11. The goal of 802.11e is to provide 802.11 networks with Quality of Service (QoS). 802.11 has three physical layers (PHY) of practical importance: 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g. 802.11a and 802.11g provide data rates between 6 and 54 Mbps, and 802.11b provides data rates of 5.5 Mbps and 11 Mbps. However these data rates are not the actual throughput. The actual throughput that a user will experience will be lower. The throughput depends on both the PHY and MAC layers. It is important to estimate what exactly is the throughput when the physical layer is 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g, and the MAC layer is 802.11e. In other words, how does providing QoS change the throughput for each of the three physical layers? In this paper we provide answers to this problem. Analytic formulae are derived. The maximum achievable throughput and minimum delay involved in data transfers are determined. The obtained results have further significance for the design of high-throughput wireless protocols.

NASA Remote Imaging System Acquisition (RISA) Multispectral Imager Development UpdatesGrubbs, Elmer; Marcellin, Michael W.; Martin, Samuel; Mayer, Jackeline; Owan, Parker; Stephens, Kyle; Suring, Lee; University of Arizona (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2012-10)The NASA Remote Imaging System Acquisition (RISA) project is a prototype camera intended to be used by future NASA astronauts. NASA has commissioned the development of this engineering camera to support new mission objectives and perform multiple functions. These objectives require the final prototype to be radiation hardened, multispectral, completely wireless in data transmission and communication, and take high quality still images. This year's team was able to successfully develop an optical system that uses a liquid lens element for focus adjustment. The electrical system uses an Overo Fire computer-on-module (COM) developed by Gumstix. The OMAP processor onboard handles all communication with a monochromatic CMOS sensor, liquid lens control circuitry, pixel data acquisition and processing, and wireless communication with a host computer.
An Anomaly Behavior Analysis Methodology for Network Centric SystemsAlipour, Hamid Reza (The University of Arizona., 2013)Information systems and their services (referred to as cyberspace) are ubiquitous and touch all aspects of our life. With the exponential growth in cyberspace activities, the number and complexity of cyber-attacks have increased significantly due to an increase in the number of applications with vulnerabilities and the number of attackers. Consequently, it becomes extremely critical to develop efficient network Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) that can mitigate and protect cyberspace resources and services against cyber-attacks. On the other hand, since each network system and application has its own specification as defined in its protocol, it is hard to develop a single IDS which works properly for all network protocols. The keener approach is to design customized detection engines for each protocol and then aggregate the reports from these engines to define the final security state of the system. In this dissertation, we developed a general methodology based on data mining, statistical analysis and protocol semantics to perform anomaly behavior analysis and detection for network-centric systems and their protocols. In our approach, we develop runtime models of protocol's state transitions during a time interval ΔΤ. We consider any n consecutive messages in a session during the time interval ΔΤ as an n-transition pattern called n-gram. By applying statistical analysis over these n-gram patterns we can accurately model the normal behavior of any protocol. Then we use the amount of the deviation from this normal model to quantify the anomaly score of the protocol activities. If this anomaly score is higher than a well-defined threshold the system marks that activity as a malicious activity. To validate our methodology, we have applied it to two different protocols: DNS (Domain Name System) at the application layer and the IEEE 802.11(WiFi) at the data link layer, where we have achieved good detection results (>95%) with low detection errors (<0.1%).
An approach to Integrated Spectrum Efficient Network Enhanced Telemetry (iSENET)Okino, Clayton; Gao, Jay; Clare, Loren; Darden, Scott; Walsh, William; Loh, Kok-kiong; Jet Propulsion Laboratory; LinQuest Corporation (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2006-10)As the integrated Network Enhanced Telemetry (iNET) program moves forward in resolving systems engineering design and architecture definition, critical technology “gaps” and a migration path to realizing the integration of this technology are needed to insure a smooth transition from the current legacy point to point telemetry links to a network oriented telemetry system. Specifically identified by the DoD aeronautical telemetry community is the need for a migration to a network solution for command, control, and transfer of test data by optimizing the physical, data link, and network layers. In this paper, we present a network centric telemetry preliminary architecture approach based on variants of 802.11 that leverages the open standards as well as the previous Advanced Range Telemetry (ARTM) work on the physical layer waveform. We present a burst modem approach based on the recent AOFDM 802.11a work, a TDMA-like MAC layer based on 802.11e, and then add additional MAC layer features to allow for the multi-hop aeronautical environment using a variant of the current working standard of 802.11s. The combined benefits of the variants obtained from 802.11a, 802.11e, and 802.11s address the needs for both spectrum efficiency in the aeronautical environment and the iNET program.
