An Optical Burst Switching Core Node Performance Analysis with Wavelength Conversion and Deflection Routing Capabilities 2017-11-07T06:11:11+00:00 Waleed M. Gaballah Ahmed S. Samra Ahmed Abo-Taleb <p>The most challenge problem in the Optical Burst Switching (OBS) core nodes is the burst loss due to a contention that occurred among the bursts. Wavelength conversion and deflection routing may be viable methods to resolve the burst contention problem and hence to improve the performance of an optical core switch. This paper proposes an OBS core node model with a combination of a wavelength conversion capability and the deflection routing technique to minimize the burst contention probability. First, the optimum values of adjusting the wavelength conversion capabilities and the level of deflection routing are investigated in a different contention resolution cases. Then, a performance analysis according to the effect of the different number of wavelength channels and variable burst length values has been studied at these optimum values. The performance measurement key is the average burst loss probability that performed by using steady-state occupancy probabilities and Poisson traffic model arrivals. Performance analysis results reveal that at the proposed switch contention resolution optimum values with different mean burst arrival rates could improve the OBS performance at high wavelength channels and small burst sizes.</p> 2017-11-07T06:06:17+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Synthetic Aperture Radar Pulse Compression and Processing for High Resolution Imaging 2017-11-08T08:34:32+00:00 Mina Kamal <p>This paper aims to design a transmitter and a receiver system for a synthetic</p> <p>aperture radar (SAR) to be used on either an aircraft or a LEO satellite for high</p> <p>resolution imaging on the earth’s surface. The transmitted pulse is to be shaped and</p> <p>modulated before transmission. The construction of a compressed time domain echo</p> <p>pulsed signal in the receiver is shown to improve the range resolution without side</p> <p>effects on the signal to noise ratio by using a matched filter. Also a particle swarm</p> <p>optimization (PSO) algorithm in the matched filter design is used here for different</p> <p>higher orders of polynomial instantaneous frequency modulation to reduce the</p> <p>sidelobe levels of the autocorrelation function at the output of the matched filter that</p> <p>represent the undesired targets with respect to the main lobe level that represents the</p> <p>desired target in the received echo pulse. The PSO algorithm and its results are shown</p> <p>by using MATLAB program codes.</p> 2017-11-08T08:34:31+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## FPGA Based Effective Communication System for Physically Challenged People 2017-11-08T09:17:42+00:00 Rajamani A Saranya N <p>This paper aims to develop a real time system for deaf and dump people for achieving better way of communication by using hand gesture recognition. Existing way of communication is not much helpful for the deaf and dump people, since existing approach depends upon translator person, who can understand the sign language of the dump and they manually decode their signs and convey the message. The translator may commit some mistakes due to wrong recognition and that limitation could be significantly overcome by using an image acquisition device and processing unit to process the gestures. The personal computer will correctly display the message which was communicated.</p> 2017-11-08T09:17:42+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
