Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine April 2017 - Cover2
This Month's Covers....
Front Cover: The background photo on the front cover is taken from Riccardo Lanari's interview with Paul Rosen that appears
on page 40 in this issue. Paul on the right stands with Isamu Nagano from Kanazawa University in Japan in 1991. The right inset
photo is Paul today, and the left inset is a depiction of the project he is working on, the NASA ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar
Back cover: The map on the back cover (background) is the flight path of Air France 447 from wikimedia commons. The illustration comes from the article on page 4, "Airplane Flight Safety Using Error-Tolerant Date Stream Processing" by Imai, et al.
and represents a situation where sensor faults provided inaccurate information to aircraft pilots, with disastrous results. In the
article, the authors pictured in the inset photo on the back cover discuss their model for data-error-tolerant stream processing.

IEEE AESS Society
The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society is a society, within the framework of the IEEE, of members with professional
interests in the organization, design, development, integration and operation of complex systems for space, air, ocean, or ground
environments. These systems include, but are not limited to, navigation, avionics, spacecraft, aerospace power, mobile electric
power & electronics, military, law enforcement, radar, sonar, telemetry, defense, transportation, automatic test, simulators, and
command & control. Many members are concerned with the practice of system engineering. All members of the IEEE are eligible
for membership in the Society and receive the Society magazine Systems upon payment of the annual Society membership fee.
The Transactions are unbundled, online only, and available at an additional fee. For information on joining, write to the IEEE at
