For new students, grants make a difference—so they can, too

The seeds of the AOA/AOSA “Opportunities in Optometry” Grant program are bearing first fruits. Some grant recipients have already enrolled in optometry school, including first-year students Gabrielle Tull at Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University and Ijem Ozodigwe at New England College of Optometry. Ozodigwe says she welcomed the...

US committee seeks more details from FAA about response to 737 Max crisis | News

US lawmakers have asked Federal Aviation Administration chief Steve Dickson for more information about how the agency responded to two issues related to the Boeing 737 Max. Those include the in-operability of angle-of-attack (AOA) indicator “disagree alerts” on 737 Max delivered prior to the accidents and Boeing’s “efforts to downplay” the Max’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS).

Training Tip: When the checklist can wait

Good question—one that many trainees ask their flight instructors. Here’s the FAA’s answer: Yes. That’s when memory items—also known as immediate action items—come into play. Consider two engine-failure scenarios, one occurring shortly after takeoff, and the other happening at altitude on a cross-country flight. In the first instance, when the...

Older Americans Act (OAA)

The Older Americans Act (OAA) is a law aimed at promoting the well-being of older adults by helping them live healthy, independent lives. The landmark legislation, passed more than 50 years ago, is a major source of funding for state and local services to assist people 60 years and older. The law covers a wide range of services, including ensuring good nutrition, caregiving, helping to find employment, and preventing the abuse of older persons.

DeepAoANet: Learning Angle of Arrival from Software Defined Radios with Deep Neural Networks

Direction finding and positioning systems based on RF signals are significantly impacted by multipath propagation, particularly in indoor environments. Existing algorithms (e.g MUSIC) perform poorly in resolving Angle of Arrival (AoA) in the presence of multipath or when operating in a weak signal regime. We note that digitally sampled RF frontends allow for the easy analysis of signals, and their delayed components. Low-cost Software-Defined Radio (SDR) modules enable Channel State Information (CSI) extraction across a wide spectrum, motivating the design of an enhanced Angle-of-Arrival (AoA) solution. We propose a Deep Learning approach to deriving AoA from a single snapshot of the SDR multichannel data. We compare and contrast deep-learning based angle classification and regression models, to estimate up to two AoAs accurately. We have implemented the inference engines on different platforms to extract AoAs in real-time, demonstrating the computational tractability of our approach. To demonstrate the utility of our approach we have collected IQ (In-phase and Quadrature components) samples from a four-element Universal Linear Array (ULA) in various Light-of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) environments, and published the dataset. Our proposed method demonstrates excellent reliability in determining number of impinging signals and realized mean absolute AoA errors less than $2^{\circ}$.
