  • Baumbach, J (2006-10)
    Camouflage technology exists since 1979 at the CSIR. Spectral measurements of natural phenomena (leaves, bark, soil, rocks) were very difficult during the early days, and spectral measurements were performed on samples ...
  • Leenen, Louise; Aschman, MJ; Grobler, MM; Van Heerden, Adelai (Academic Conferences and Publishing International Ltd, 2018-03)
    Cyber as an operational domain is widely recognised by military forces, but the process to operationalise cyber poses a number of challenges. One of the difficulties is that traditional military culture is far removed from ...
  • Nel, M; Theron, B (ee Publishers, 2010-06)
    This article discusses the determination of uncertainty contributions when performing a power responsivity calibration for a fibre optic power meter.
  • Venter, JP; Nare, S (CSIR, 2008-11)
    The rapid development and use of information and communication technology (ICT) has influenced everyday life, mostly in a positive manner. This technology is, however, also available to the criminally minded. Activities ...
  • Cronje, J (PRASA, 2012-11)
    The US Patent and Trademark Office, together with the NASA Tournament Lab, launched a contest to develop specialized algorithms to help bring the seven million patents presently in the patent archive into the digital age. ...
  • Shabalala, MB; Moabalobelo, T; Van der Merwe, T (ICCWS, 2015-03)
    As cybercrime is on the rise, individuals would like to rest assured that their authentication information cannot be stolen, and then used to gain access to their privileged information. Smart cards can and have played a ...
  • Moolla, Yaseen; Singh, A; Saith, E; Akhoury, S (Springer, 2015-12)
    Fingerprint recognition is an important security technique with a steadily growing usage for the identification and verification of individuals. However, current fingerprint acquisition systems have certain disadvantages, ...
  • Msiza, IS; Leke-Betechuoh, B; Nelwamondo, Fulufhelo V; Msimang, N (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), 2009-10)
    The problem of Automatic Fingerprint Pattern Classification (AFPC) has been studied by many fingerprint biometric practitioners. It is an important concept because, in instances where a relatively large database is being ...
  • Msiza, IS; Leke-Betechuoh, B; Malumedzha, T (IEEE, 2011-02)
    Fingerprint re-alignment is an important aspect in the subject of fingerprint biometrics because a fingerprint that has been rotated, voluntarily or involuntarily, can have negative impact on the functionality of an automated ...
  • Msiza, IS; Mathekga, Mmamolatelo E; Nelwamondo, Fulufhelo V; Marwala, T (ICIC International, 2011-09)
    Fingerprint image segmentation plays an important role in any fingerprint image analysis implementation and it should, ideally, be executed during the initial stages of a fingerprint manipulation process. After careful ...
  • Marwala, T; Sibisi, S (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2005-01)
    Finite element (FE) models are widely used to predict the dynamic characteristics of aerospace structures. These models often give results that differ from measured results and therefore need to be updated to match measured ...
  • Tsague, HD; Twala, B (IEEE, 2015-12)
    This paper presents a comprehensive study of leakage reduction techniques applicable to CMOS based devices. In the process, mathematical equations that model the power-performance trade-offs in CMOS logic circuits are ...
  • De Beer, Morris; Van Heerden, A (2016-11)
    The demands faced by those who work within a military context require individuals to cope with difficult and challenging circumstances – physically, cognitively, emotionally and socially. Thus the understanding and measurement ...
  • Cogan, D; Griffith, Derek J; Magidimisha, Edwin; Van Zyl, R (SPIE, 2018-10)
    With the launch of the ZACube-2 nanosatellite, a new technique of wildfire detection and monitoring from space will be evaluated. Potassium is an essential plant macronutrient and all vegetation biomass fires exhibit ...
  • White, WJ; Barker, D; Sutherland, A (DTI and CSIR, 2013-04)
    The hazards involved in taking an aircraft from concept design to first flight are not fully comprehended by non-flight test qualified pilots. The FAA published and Aeronautical Circular with basic guidelines. This work ...

  • Barker, D (World Airnews Magazine, 2015-12)
    It’s a story of following one’s dream. Belonging to Werner Heiml, ZU-SFP originated from Germany where it was used as a basic trainer in the Luftwaffe. The P149D was originally developed and manufactured by Piaggio & Co, ...
  • MacLucas, David A (2012-10)
    The focus of the author's thesis was the aerodynamic flow field that develops as a result of the interaction of a moving plane shock wave with concave profiles. In this presentation, he discusses some of the interesting ...
  • Smith, R (CCIRDT, 2015-11)
    The main purpose of the extended project is to identify and investigate the aspects that will encourage elderly women in rural areas to use the ICT platform, and to determine what the physical design, content and applications ...
