Cobham Microprocessor Integrated in to NASA’s CYGNSS

first_imgCobham’s products and services contributed to the recent deployment of NASA’s Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS). CYGNSS consists of eight Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) micro-satellites and seeks to improve weather prediction by studying the interaction between ocean surface properties, moist atmospheric thermodynamics, radiation, and convective dynamics as it relates to Tropical Cyclones. The NASA team consists of the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), University of Michigan, Surrey Satellite Technology, and Sierra Nevada Corporation.The Cobham Gaisler’s GR712RC LEON3 Microprocessor was selected by SwRI as the main computer for each of the CYGNSS satellites while Cobham Gaisler’s LEON3 processor IP core was also used in the CYGNSS Delay Doppler Mapping Instrument (DDMI) payload as part of Surrey Satellite Technology’s Space GNSS Receiver-Remote Sensing Instrument (SGR-ReSI). Cobham Semiconductor Solutions’ RadHard Memory products and Circuit Card Assembly services also contributed to the CYGNSS mission.The GR712RC enables a high level of system integration by providing a multitude of interfaces. This, combined with the high computational power of the two processor cores, makes it an attractive system-on-chip device with low power consumption that is easy to integrate in spacecraft platform and payload. The LEON3 processor IP soft core, meanwhile, offers the possibility to integrate the same processor into custom designed microelectronics, while maintaining the compatibility with the GR712RC, offering great savings in software infrastructure and development time.last_img read more

On this day: Millwall 1-2 City

first_imgMillwall 1-2 Bristol CityWednesday, April 30th 2019Sky Bet ChampionshipThe DenScorers: Paterson 71, Diédhiou 81 Attendance: 12,261Lee Gregory had volleyed the hosts into a first-half lead but their push for a second goal proved unsuccessful, with the post coming to City’s aid before young Max O’Leary’s save from a Shaun Williams penalty.That proved to be the turning point as Lee Johnson’s side equalised through Jamie Paterson’s exquisite free kick only four minutes later, before Famara Diédhiou pounced to hit the winner less than ten minutes from the end.The result meant City will end the season in the top nine, with their fight for the final play-off spot still very much alive ahead of Derby County’s clash with Swansea City.last_img read more

Shane Ray, SEC’s sack leader, ejected for targeting for hit on Blake Sims

first_imgATLANTA – Shane Ray, the SEC’s leader in sacks, was a virtual non-factor in the SEC Championship game as he was ejected for targeting.The Missouri defensive end drilled Alabama quarterback Blake Sims on a helmet-to-face mask hit well after Sims threw an eventual 58-yard touchdown pass to DeAndrew White, which gave top-ranked Alabama a 14-0 lead.Sims was knocked to the turf on the play but did not miss any offensive plays for the Crimson Tide, who went on to win 42-13.Ray, who had two tackles and 1/2 a sack to bring his conference-best total to 14, strongly disagreed with the call and insisted the film vindicated him.“I don’t think it was a helmet-to-helmet at all,” Ray said. “My hands contacted him first, my head was placed underneath his chin, how I was taught, I was two steps within the quarterback of him throwing so it doesn’t make it an illegal hit at all.”The penalty was reviewed and upheld and the 6-foot-3 245 pound junior was ejected with 11:48 to go in the second quarter.Missouri coach Gary Pinkel disagreed with Ray’s assessment.“Up top our coaches said that — I think he had the crown of the head. That’s what I was told,” Pinkel said. “Our coaches upstairs saw it, and they agreed with it. So that’s what it was. We’ve had personal fouls in these games, penalties. We’ve had them the last three or four weeks also, and you get in big games like this, and it’s not very good. I mean, it’s not — I’m responsible for that.“We had other penalties in the game that hurt us, and you play a good team like this, you do those kinds of things, you’re going to pay for it, and we did.”Ray said he felt angry and frustrated as he left the field and had to watch the rest of the game from the locker room.“You feel like you were slighted of course you’re going to be angry,” he said. “Heartbroken. It’s the championship game, you get ejected for a call, that’s not how you want to end the regular season at all.”Missouri struggled to generate pass rush without Ray on the field, though the Tigers did sack Sims once in the third quarter.last_img read more

Stable Steelers arrive in style for training camp

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown gets out of his custom Steelers-themed Rolls Royce as he arrives for NFL football training camp at the team’s training facility in Latrobe, Pa., Saturday, July 25, 2015. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — Antonio Brown couldn’t say no. How often does Rolls-Royce ask if you would like to ride to work in a $500,000 car?So the All-Pro receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers relaxed in the back seat on Saturday while his brother Desmond carefully maneuvered the Phantom — wrapped in a design replete with Brown’s signature scrawled across the doors, the Steelers logo on the sideview mirrors and a pair of gold stripes running right down the middle from end to end — to the dorm at Saint Vincent College as the team reported for training camp.It was a far cry from Brown’s first summer as a pro in 2010, when he arrived in something more befitting a then-largely unknown sixth-round pick.“I’ve come a long way from a Jeep Wrangler,” he said with a laugh.Brown’s choice of transportation also brings to mind the team that issues his paycheck. Rolls-Royce’s way of doing business hasn’t changed much since the company was founded in 1904. Same for the Steelers, who value continuity perhaps more than any other team in the NFL.This summer is the franchise’s 50th at the small school about an hour southeast of Pittsburgh. The group that checked in on Saturday looks largely like the one that walked off the field following a wild-card loss to Baltimore in January.For every significant departure — including Hall of Fame defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau and safety Troy Polamalu — there was a corresponding move that reinforced the core the Steelers believe can lead them to a seventh Super Bowl title in the near future.Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger signed a lengthy contract extension in March. Defensive end Cameron Heyward inked a new deal last week. Pittsburgh locked down coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert through 2018 in the final 48 hours before the doors at Saint Vincent opened.“That’s stability,” guard Ramon Foster said.And also validation from the Rooney family that the team is on the upswing following a pair of 8-8 seasons in 2012 and 2013 that evolved into a promising 2014 in which the Steelers went 11-5 and won the AFC North title behind an offense ranked second in the NFL.“That’s last year,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “I wish we could live in the past but we’ve got to go out and prove it again this year or (people) are going to talk bad about us.”There are issues Tomlin wants addressed before the season opener in New England on Sept. 10, including restoring some of the bite to a pass rush that has been fickle at best in recent years. One thing he won’t have to worry about is Brown’s commitment.The 27-year-old showed up on time and happy despite concerns he would stay home and ask for a hefty raise after leading the NFL in receptions and yards receiving last season.Rather than engage management in a staring contest, Brown — who has three years remaining on the $42.5 million deal he agreed to in 2012 — made an entrance that could hardly be called understated. While his contract looks like one of the league’s best bargains as he reaches his prime, Brown isn’t in the mood to mar what he hopes will be a special year.“Holdouts never go well,” he said. “If you study history of guys who hold out, they always end bad. I’m in a blessed position. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls Royces.”Brown will get to enjoy his swagged-out wheels a little longer than usual. The Steelers will be at Saint Vincent for an extra week this year after being chosen to play in the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 9 against Minnesota. Pittsburgh will use the extra time to bring younger players such as rookie defensive backs Senquez Golson, Doran Grant and Jarrod Holliman up to speed.For the better part of five decades, the Steelers rode their defense to prominence and championships. The balance of power has swung decisively to the other side of the ball.
