Information Systems & Modeling for Counterterrorism

Abstract: Bioterrorism is a clear danger to the world. It can be produced at small, covert facilities, carried in small vials and dispensed into water and food supplies. Hundreds of people could be infected before medical establishments discover the situation. Agents such as anthrax, botulism, plague, smallpox, and tularemia are transmitted by food contamination, infected animals, fleas, inhalation and infected humans. They all lead to death. This presentation describes information technology applications for early disease detection and for setting up linked prophylaxis clinics and emergency operations centers. It also discusses interoperability of medical facilities, law enforcement and health departments, emergency response resources, intelligence collection/situational reporting and mobile command vehicles through the specification of global requirements and standards. Links to moving and stopped mobile command centers are established using grid wireless networks. Collection of pre-bio-terrorism indicators is combined with medical symptoms reporting to provide early warning and medical preparedness. There is a great challenge to develop a network of interconnected models that trigger early warnings and construct situational pictures for emergency response units. Models employ Bayesian methods to interpret symptoms from differing sources to estimate likely bioterrorism incidents. Behavioral models of terrorist groups and pre-incident operations provide early warning alerts for positioning security and medical resources. A unified framework is presented that integrates interoperable systems, communications (voice and data), software tools and procedures to achieve an early warning and integrated response capability for homeland security. An example is described of a system implementation that demonstrates these concepts. This system was recently tested in a smallpox exercise to ensure interoperability and early warning readiness as well as ensuring that all citizens are inoculated in the necessary timeframe.

Resource Management in Mobile Telephony.

Congestion management in cellular networks is of prime importance for the mobile network operators of present and future generation. Nowadays cellular operators utilize improved planning techniques for enhanced capacity management, but on the other hand the number of mobile subscribers rapidly increases and additionally, new data-technologies for wireless access add extra traffic to the already overloaded networks, often causing serious problems to their performance. This presentation describes a radio resource management architecture for increasing the efficiency of cellular networks especially during overloading periods.

from scans to sutures: computer-assisted orthopedic surgery in the twenty-first century

Randy Ellis,

PhDDepartments of Computing,

Mechanical Engineering, and Surgery Queen's University, Kingston, Canada

Abstract: Computer-assisted surgery is the process of using medical images, such as CT scans, X-ray fluoroscopy, or 3D ultrasound, to improve patient care.  A typical surgical procedure begins by acquiring and processing a CT scan with specially developed image-analysis software.  A surgeon then performs a "virtual surgery" on the patient to develop a preoperative plan.  In the operating room the medical image is registered to the patient's anatomy by finding an optimal rigid-body transformation.  This transformation allows an object or motion in one coordinate frame to be represented in the other frame, and thus a surgeon can visualize the location of an instrument deep within concealed anatomy while avoiding structures at risk.  The operating surgeon can also use computer-tracked fluoroscopy or ultrasound for 3D guidance. For the past five years, our interdisciplinary research group has been investigating fundamental problems in orthopedic surgery of bones and joints.  This talk will be an overview of the problems and solutions that have been tested in a set of pilot clinical trials in which we have treated more than 250 patients for early or advanced arthritis, poorly healed bone fractures, and treatment of deep bone tumors.  The talk will conclude with the proposed design of a new kind of operating room that integrates real-time imaging and tracking with telecommunication to offsite biomechanical laboratories, aimed at improving the way in which surgeons plan and perform complex surgical

The NPOESS Spacecraft and Payload Suite.
A Next Generation Low Earth Orbit Observation Platform

Hal J. Bloom
NPOESS Integrated Program Office

Abstract: To meet user-validated requirements for 55 geophysical parameters. POESS will deliver global Stored Mission Data (SMD) to four U.S. centers for processing and distribution, with 95% of the data being delivered in less than 28 minutes from the time of collection. The advanced technology visible, infrared, and microwave imagers and sounders that will fly on NPOESS will deliver higher spatial and temporal resolution atmospheric, oceanic, terrestrial, climatic, and solar-geophysical data, enabling more accurate short-term weather forecasts and severe storm warnings, as well as serving the data continuity requirements for improved global climate change assessment and prediction. The NPOESS team (IPO, Northrop Grumman, and its subcontractors) is well along the path to creating a high performance, polar-orbiting satellite system that will be more responsive to user requirements, deliver more capability at less cost, and provide sustained, space-based measurements as a cornerstone of an Integrated Global Observing System. The National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) and its managing Integrated Program Office (IPO) were established by a 1994 Presidential Decision Directive to converge existing Air Force, NASA & NOAA polar-orbiting satellites into an integrated national program. It is the follow on mission to the TIROS and DMSP satellites, carrying the next generation of weather instruments. NPOESS will exemplify the capabilities and challenges of future low earth orbit weather observation spacecraft. Earth observing requirements from the weather and climate science communities have significantly increased the demands on spacecraft. Increases in the number of phenomena observed, increases in their resolution and accuracy, and shorter refresh and reporting times put significant demands on spacecraft and ground systems. The impact of these new requirements on spacecraft are more instruments, high accuracy stable spacecraft platforms with higher data rates and more frequent data communications to the ground.
