Disclosed is a method for diagnosis by reflectometry of a bundle of power lines including an input point and a plurality of branches, including the following steps: inserting (S50) electric markers having different frequency characteristics onto the branches of the bundle; injecting (S52) a test signal into the bundle from the input point; receiving (S54) a set of reflected signals produced by reflections of the test signal in the branches; analyzing all the reflected signals by identifying the markers and by assigning (S56) each reflected signal to one of the branches according to the frequency characteristic of the marker inserted onto the branch; and identifying the presence/absence of a defect in the branch by comparing (S58) the reflected signal assigned to the branch with a reflected signal model obtained by modelling the reflection of the test signal in the branch in the absence of any defect in the branch.

The PANOPTESEC consortium will deliver a beyond-state-of-the-art prototype of a cyber defence decision support system, demonstrating a risk based approach to automated cyber defence that accounts for the dynamic nature of information and communications technologies (ICT) and the constantly evolving capabilities of cyber attackers. Panoptes is an ancient Greek term meaning all eyes or all seeing. This term has incorporated into the project name to represent the PANOPTESEC consortium because the overall goal of the PANOPTESEC project is to deliver a continuous cyber security monitoring and response capability.\n\nOrganizations have become increasingly dependent on networks and computer systems to support their business operations and services. Unfortunately, as this dependency has grown, the motives and capabilities of cyber adversaries to attack these systems are also increasing. Attackers are often able to penetrate computer systems to extract sensitive information, tamper with accuracy of the information and prevent access to essential services. Given the organizational dependency on the systems and services, any one of these tactics can have significant negative impacts on an organizations business capabilities, reputation and liabilities. In the era of open networks and platforms, attackers continue to find more venues to exploit these systems to cause substantial damage.\n\nDespite the well-known need for continuous monitoring of ICT systems to detect vulnerabilities and attacks, as well as the need for rapid incident response, commercial solutions do not meet the demands of modern networks and systems.\n\nThe PANOPTESEC prototype will address these challenges by proactively and reactively evaluating system weaknesses, identifying potential attack paths, providing a list of prioritized response actions, and delivering a means to execute these responses; all supported by automated analysis engines. The resulting PANOPTESEC prototype will provide a continuous monitoring and response capability to prevent, detect, manage and react to cyber incidents in real-time. The near market-ready system will support breach notifications and improve situation awareness while supporting the decision-making process required by security personnel. PANOPTESEC will deliver this capability through an integrated and modular, standards-based integration of technologies that will collectively deliver the required capabilities.

To identify a target, the moving noncoherent colocated multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar system takes advantage of multiple antennas in transmission and reception which are close in space. In this paper, we study the estimation performance and the resolution limit for this scheme in which each array geometry is described by the sample-variance of the sensor distribution. So, our analysis encompasses any sensor distributions, including varying intersensors distances or/and lacunar (missing sensors) configuration. As in the space-time MIMO model considered here the radar is moving, the target Doppler frequency cannot be assumed invariant to the target position/angle. The first part of this paper derives and analyzes closed form (nonmatrix) expressions of the deterministic Cramér-Rao lower bound (CRB) for the direction and the velocity of a moving target contaminated by a structured noise (clutter echoes) and a background noise, including the cases of the clutter-free environment and the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime. The analysis of the proposed expressions of the CRB allows to better understand the characterization of the target. In particular, we prove the coupling between the direction parameter and the velocity of the target is linear with the radar velocity. In the second part, we focus our study on the analytical (closed form) derivation and the analysis of the angular resolution limit (ARL). Based on the resolution of an equation involving the CRB, the ARL can be interpreted as the minimal separation to resolve two closely spaced targets. Consequently, the ARL is a key quantity to evaluate the performance of a radar system. We show that the ARL is in fact quasi-invariant to the movement of the MIMO radar. © 2010 IEEE.

This project deals with the problem of fault tolerant control (FTC) for the management of interconnected, nonlinear systems affected by multiple sensor faults. Sensor faults are of paramount importance due to the large number of sensors used for a) monitoring and control of large-scale systems (e.g. transportation systems, energy and power systems), and b) providing rich and redundant information for executing safety-critical tasks (e.g. aerospace systems, petrochemical processes). The number of sensors is expected to increase in the way of creating smart cities, a societal challenge of European Union. To this end, Europe 2020 strategy has set as key priority the enrichment of digital society that will provide `intelligence to a conventional city, using information and communication technologies integrated with sensors and sensor networks. This project proposes a methodology that can contribute in the reliability of these means, the safe system functioning and the protection of everyday life. The novelty of the proposed FTC method lies in its capacity to handle multiple sensor faults, and furthermore to compensate their effects on interconnected, nonlinear systems. This is realized by deploying a large number of agents in a non-centralized architecture, important for FTC in large-scale systems. The FTC is conducted based on the decision of a multiple fault diagnosis (MSFD) mechanism designed to detect and isolate multiple sensor faults in interconnected, multisensory controlled systems. Given that multiple sensor FTC can be significantly affected by the substandard performance of the MSFD mechanism and the network imperfections of the agents communication, derived methods will be supported by MSFD guarantees and communication protocol will be designed to manage communication problems. The strong experience of the fellow in MSFD of interconnected, nonlinear systems and supervisors expertise in multi-sensor FTC can ensure the success of this project.
