  • vision based augmented reality for pilot guidance in Airport Runways and taxiways
    International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality, 2004
    Co-Authors: J Molineros, Reinhold Behringer, C Tam

    Abstract:

    This paper describes our on-going efforts to develop an augmented reality system for enhanced pilot situational awareness in Airport Runways and taxiways. The system consists of a sensing component based on computer vision and an information component based on high-fidelity graphic model databases. Vision algorithms are used for a variety of guidance and warning tasks. A necessary requirement is for vision algorithms to have a real-time response.

  • 90 GHz – 3D Scattered Field Measurements for Investigation of Foreign Object Debris
    IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 2019
    Co-Authors: Florence. Nsengiyumva, Carla Migliaccio, Jerôme Lanteri, Jean-yves Dauvignac, Laurent Brochier, Ch Pichot

    Abstract:

    Scattering properties of millimeter waves (MMW) remain relatively unknown compared to lower frequency bands, although their study is of interest considering the increasing number of civil applications, especially in the W-band. In this paper, we present an efficient measurement set-up that provides scattering measurements with spatial and polarization diversities. The targeted application is Foreign Object Debris (FOD) detection and identification for surveillance of Airport Runways. Most existing systems are monostatic but rapid advances in MMW technology pushes toward the deployment of multistatic radars on either side of Airport Runways. In the following, we investigate the contribution of multistatic measurements with a special focus on the reconstruction of glass and brake pad debris, courtesy of DGAC (French Civil Aviation). We also present an efficient approach for making images of FODs. For this, we process scattered field measurements with an additive (with respect to polarization) back-propagation algorithm. First images include all measured points taken from the upper hemisphere. In order to get closer to the final application, we restrict the field of view to receivers facing the transmitter. Both approaches provide very good shape reconstruction of the glass debris and the central zone of the brake pad. To our best knowledge, this is the first time that full-3D measurements have been conducted on FODs in the W-band. It is also the first example of a 3D qualitative image of FOD obtained from measured data in the W-band

  • Millimeter-Wave Imaging for FOD Detection
    Air Traffic Management and Systems III, 2019
    Co-Authors: Florence. Nsengiyumva, C. Migliaccio, Ch Pichot

    Abstract:

    We present an efficient approach for reconstructing images of small objects and Foreign Object Debris (FODs) from scattered field synthetic data and measurements in W-band (75−110 GHz), taking advantages of spatial and polarization diversities, and process them with either qualitative or quantitative inverse methods. The target application is FOD detection for Airport Runways. We investigate FOD detection and identification capabilities through two approaches: a quantitative reconstruction under 2D assumption and qualitative reconstruction using a Backpropagation algorithm (BP). Most existing systems are monostatic but rapid advances in millimeter-wave technologies make it realistic to imagine the deployment of multistatic radars on either side of Airport Runways. In the following, we investigate the contribution of multistatic measurements, on the reconstruction of typical debris, courtesy of DGAC (French Civil Aviation).
