Active Infrared Sensor for Monitoring Protected Areas
The analysis of typical ways to build tools of control of the security perimeter and intrusion into the protected area. The method of compensation of the effect of ambient light, the block diagram and measuring information processing algorithm of active infrared sensor of reflecting type, allowing to use it to register movement, is reviewed. The results of experimental studies of the device to control the intrusion into the protected area on the basis of active infrared sensor of reflecting type are considered.
The notion that certain management practices at all levels create substantial competitive advantages for the company in the market received a lot of attention in the academic community over the years. A large body of work was accumulated as a result, though it appears that a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between management practices and firm performance is still lacking. This study is a part of a larger project aiming at closing this gap. The objective of this study was to create a typology of companies based on efficiency, using a number of objective criteria obtained from publicly available information.
The article suggests and describes a laboratory stand, allowing analysis printed board assembly electronic equipment (low-frequency amplifier) with the aim of monitoring the technical condition and diagnosis. This method has been implemented stand "Troubleshooting Handbook." The stand is designed for laboratory work by students in the course "means and methods of technical diagnostics."
Issues of ex post evaluation of mergers and antitrust bodies prescriptions are discussed. Among them: interrelation of enactment and enforcement from the perspectives of errors of I and II types in antitrust mergers control; probable consequences of mergers for competition; Аннотации к статьям 206 тьям № 1, 2012 comparative advantages and failures of decision variants available for antitrust bodies; ways of decision-making in expected merger. Also there are issues on efficacy of antimonopoly body decisions taking into account cost of monitoring, sanctioning of mergers participants, including influence on competition condition on relevant markets.
This paperwork overviews core technologies implemented by comparably new products at information security market - web application firewalls. Web applications are a very wide-used and convenient way of presenting remote users with access to corporate information resources. It can however become single point of failure rendering all the information infrastructure unreachable for legitimate clients. To prevent malicious access attempts to endpoint information resources and, intermediately, to web server, a new class of information security solutions has been created. Web application firewalls function at the highest, seventh layer of ISO/OSI model and serves as a controlling tunnel for all the traffic heading to and from company’s web application server(s). To ensure decent levels of traffic monitoring and intrusion prevention web application firewalls are equipped with various mechanisms of data exchange session “normalness” control. These mechanisms include protocol check routines, machine learning techniques, traffic signature analysis and more dedicated means like denial of service, XSS injection and CRRF attack prevention. Ability to research and add user rules to be processed along with vendor-provided ones is important since every company has its own security policy and, therefore the web application firewall should provide security engineers with ways to tweak its rules to reflect the security policy more precisely. This research is based on wide practice experience integrating web application firewalls into security landscape of various organizations, their administration and customization. We illustrate our research of available filtering mechanisms and their implementations with example product features by market leaders, schemes and screenshots from real web application firewall systems.
Telehealth systems demand standardized solutions to be cost effective and to take advantage of middleware operation and interoperability. The plug-&-play and standard-based platform that, either as individual elements or as components, can be incorporated in a simple way into different homecare environments. Many company, not traditionally involved in medical markets, increasing pressure for a standard for Personal Health Devices (PHD). As a result: ISO/IEEE11073 (X73) standards is adapting from Intensive Unit Care (ICU) scope, focused on the Point-Of-Care (PoC), to Personal Health Devices (PHD), focused on ubiquitous environments, implementing high quality sensors, supporting wireless technologies and providing a faster and more reliable communication network resources. This X73-PHD version is for the homecare challenge and might appear the best-positioned international standards to reach this goal. In this article, a X73 compliant agent and manager communication for homecare platform, as a proof of concept, will be explaining all steps implemented as well as on demand agent specific protocol plugins downloaded to X73 Manager.
In this paper the authors analyze the optimization of public service delivery in Russia. The role of the optimization of administrative processes in the modernization of public administration is also considered; major activities aimed at the optimization of the public services delivery in 2010-2011 are described; some background information for decision making process is revealed; major methods of improving quality and accessibility of public services are analyzed; the key methodological approaches for the reengineering of public services and spheres of government regulations are presented. Basing on the researches conducted, the authors propose the ways of making the activities aimed at the optimization of public services effi cient.
