    • Remley, Conrad Jay (1982)
      Research has been generated by the desire to make the Global Positioning System (GPS), a highly accurate navigation system using satellites, accessible to the civilian user at reasonable cost. Research up to this point has ...
    • Painter, John H. (IEEE, 1966-07)
    • Alcorn, W. P.; Lee, K. A.; Ward, D. T.; Trang, J. A.; Krishnamurthy, K.; Crump, J. W.; Branham, P. A.; Woo, D. L. Y.; Ren-Jye Yu; Robbins, A. C.; Painter, John H.; Kelly, W. E. III (IEEE, 1997-10-12)
      Increasing air traffic control (ATC) requirements raises the workload of pilots. Required tasks dictate more “head-in-the-cockpit” computation, which can easily distract a pilot from safe airplane operation. Following eight ...
    • Trenk, Eric (1991)
      This thesis reports the results of research to develop, using the Eiffel object-oriented programming language, aircraft flight instruments display software to graphically display output from a passenger jet transport ...
    • Painter, John H. (IEEE, 1993-12-15)
      This paper shows how it is that fuzzy control may be viewed as a particular kind of stochastic (Bayesian) control. With the Bayes approach, fuzzy control may be viewed as an ensembled-average control, where the average is ...
    • Painter, John H.; Young Hwan Lho (IEEE, 1993-12-01)
      In this paper, fuzzy processing is applied to the adaptive Kalman filter. The filter gain coefficients are adapted over a 50 dB range of unknown signal/noise dynamics, using fuzzy membership functions. Specific simulation ...
    • Sinclair, Andrew James (Texas A&M University, 2005-08-29)
      This dissertation addresses the generalization of rigid-body attitude kinematics, dynamics, and control to higher dimensions. A new result is developed that demonstrates the kinematic relationship between the angular ...
    • Kelly, Wallace E. III; Painter, John H. (United States. Patent and Trademark Office; Texas A&M University. Libraries, 2001-08-07)
      An apparatus for determining the state of a dynamic system is disclosed. The apparatus comprises one or more sensors operable to sample physical parameters of a system, and a mode interpreter. The mode interpreter is ...
    • Painter, John H.; Kelly, W. E. III (IEEE, 1996-09-08)
      The authors present a method for representing N-dimensional fuzzy membership functions. The proposed method is a generalization of the one-dimensional trapezoidal membership function commonly used in fuzzy systems. The ...
    • Alavi-Sereshki, Mohammad Mehdi (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1989)
      This dissertation represents new techniques for evaluating generation capacity reliability. These techniques are based on Fourier transforms and their properties. They permit the use of continuous probability distribution(s) ...
    • Rong, Jie; Ding, Yuanyuan; Valasek, J.; Painter, John H. (IEEE, 2003-10-05)
    • Painter, John H. (IEEE, 1992-03-17)
      Knowledge-based control is defined here as the management of dynamic systems whose states admit qualitative modeling. Contributions from several disparate disciplines, such as artificial intelligence, the decision sciences, ...
    • Glass, Emily Ann (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1994)
      The research for this dissertation was undertaken by Emily Ann Glass in pursuit of a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Electrical Engineering. The objectives were first, to examine software architecture useful for knowledge-based ...
    • Painter, John H.; Lin, S.K.; Glass, E. (IEEE, 1988-08-24)
      The authors examine the application of knowledge-based symbolic control to the management of execution and configuration of a complex numerical control system. Symbolic processing is used to implement inference of system ...
    • Painter, John H.; Tachita, R.; Ikeda, K.; Teranishi, A.; Noe, P.S. (IEEE, 1988-11-29)
      An investigation was conducted on compact, multichannel GPS (global positioning system) receivers. The code generator and correlation equipment were simplified, attempting to avoid downgrading the properties possessed by ...
    • Yoon, Chang-June (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1979)
      The goal of this investigation is to develop a real-time, sampled-data processing technique to combat both natural and intention interferences on aeronautical radio communication and data-link channels. The particular ...
    • Eggers, M.; Painter, John H. (IEEE, 1983-09)
      An optimal symbol-by-symbol detection scheme for duobinary signaling (Class I PRS) which exploits the inherent correlation properties of partial response signaling (PRS) is postulated. Analytical results indicate a maximum ...
    • Painter, John H.; Kerstetter, D.; Jowers, S. (IEEE, 1990-11)
      The deterministic design of the alpha-beta filter and the stochastic design of its Kalman counterpart are placed on a common basis. The first step is to find the continuous-time filter architecture which transforms into ...
