Data Acquisition Software

HBM, Marlborough, MA, has released Version 6.60 of its Perception software for high-speed data acquisition applications. The software is designed for processing large amounts of data — 100 GB within 10 seconds. The software’s “eDrive” application lets users make measurements on electric inverters and drive systems, and visualize torque and rotational speed as live curves. Users can create individual “workbenches” that can be defined with distinct restrictions, test functions, and capabilities. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61059-104

Vehicle Communication Simulation

With Release 2015-B, dSPACE, Wixom, MI, has launched the V2X Solution through a dedicated blockset directly within the Simulink® environment. The V2X solution gives users access to Vehicle-to-X (V2X) WLAN ad-hoc communication during model-in-the-loop (MIL), software- in-the-loop (SIL), and hardware- in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. A map instrument displays a vehicle’s position, velocity, driving direction, and classification of individual traffic participants as well as other V2X-specific information.

Executive Perspectives: Software

DOMINIC GALLELLO President & CEO MSC Software Corporation Newport Beach, CA www.mscsoftware.com The foundation stones of CAE were laid in the 1960s during the race for space. Because of the obvious defense implications, this was a national imperative. It was a time of virtually unlimited government funding for advancing engineering methods — long nights and weekends, with country first and family second.

Executive Perspectives: Software

SVANTE LITTMARCK President & CEO COMSOL, Inc. Burlington, MA www.comsol.com With the birth some 50 years ago of computers based on integrated circuits and semiconductors, engineers had a tool that could potentially produce numerical solutions to differential equations based on the laws of science — equations that realistically modeled the physics at hand, not just a simplified version that modeled the physics in a perfectly ideal case. At that point, numerical analysis became practically very important.

Executive Perspectives: Software

JON HIRSCHTICK Founder and Chairman of the Board Onshape Cambridge, MA www.onshape.com Over the past four decades, I’ve watched CAD grow to become a vital part of the way virtually all products are designed and manufactured. In 1981, when I was a student at MIT’s CAD research lab, there were probably only thousands of CAD users in the world. Now there are millions.

Rigorous Antenna Noise Temperature Calculation Method for International Space Station Visiting Spacecraft

Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas The temperature of the orbiting space station’s Sun-facing side could be up to 250 °F (≈120 °C) and will be a significant antenna noise temperature contributor for visiting spacecraft communication and tracking systems during rendezvous. The conventional antenna noise temperature calculation does not take into account the space station reflection effects, and results in an underestimated antenna and system noise temperature. Thus, the visiting spacecraft communication and tracking system performance could be overestimated during rendezvous.
