AbstractThis article considers emergence in the context of systems of systems, examining the earlier proposed tri-layered architecture in some depth. In contrast with healthcare reform, a social media phenomenon, the emergence of topics in the Twitter user community, is shown not to satisfy a critical condition of the architecture. Nevertheless, detection of topic emergence is shown to offer insights into the design of Emergence Behavior Observers.

The IPTN's Airborne Data Relay System (ADReS): A System Concept and the Phase One System ConfigurationSoelaiman, Adi Dharma; Roesma, Fauzi Effendy; Indonesian Aircraft Industry Ltd. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1988-10)By making use of NC212-200 commuter aircraft as an airborne container, the ADReS, a short for airborne data relay system, had been configured and tested in an experimental status during the year of 1987. A kind of test on EMC, EMI, RFI and telemetry data link were applied to the system. Prior to the IPTN's flight test program in the year of 1988 - 1992, the ADReS is designed not only to receive and to relay the data, but also planed to be able to process the data for quick data analysis purposes on board. This paper describes the ADReS system concept and its experimental status system - the Phase One system configuration.

SPECTRAL EFFICIENCY/BIT ERROR RATE OF FQPSK AND OTHER NON-COHERENT SYSTEMS SUPERIOR TO COHERENT SYSTEMS FOR SMS AND BURSTED TDMA AND CDMA SYSTEMSMcCorduck, James A.; Feher, Kamilo; MatrixSat, Inc.; University of California; Digcom, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2002-10)For faster acquisition in bursted environments for SMS (Short Messaging Service) and other lower-bit rate applications, non-coherent detection techniques are proposed. Non-Coherent detection demodulators are proposed because faster acquisition capability in bursted environments can result in a reduced amount of preamble bits in the messaging frame, i.e. less overhead, resulting in an effective increase in spectral efficiency. Reducing the preamble can also provide performance enhancement opportunities for Feher Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (FQPSK)  and for other systems. The preamble can also be varied to provide for better Bit Error Rate (BER) performance. The lower bit rate environment also gives the opportunity to employ simpler architectures in lieu of preamble modification. Several non-coherent detection alternatives are described.
