6th AFCEA Student Conference

Future of Information and Communication Technology http://www.afcea.org

Monday, 24 March 2014, Bucharest, Romania

Organized by: AFCEA Europe http://www.afcea.org/europe/ AFCEA Bucharest Chapter http://www.afcea-bucharest.com “POLITEHNICA” UNIVERSITY OF BUCHAREST Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology Center for Technological Electronics and Interconnection Techniques http://www.cetti.ro


Welcome to 6th AFCEA Student Conference

Welcome to the 6th edition of the AFCEA Student Conference Dear Students, It is a real pleasure to welcome you as participants in this year’s AFCEA Europe Student Conference and many of you also in the joint AFCEA TechNet International & NATO C4ISR Industry Conference. We, AFCEA Europe and the POLTEHNICA University of Bucharest appreciate that again so many students take the opportunity to exchange views on a theme of your choice: “Future Information and Communication Technology”. I think you made a good decision, because this “umbrella theme” allows a broad spectrum of “special themes” to be covered, from social media to cyber security or from information technology to educational issues. Students from about a dozen universities out of six nations will get together to learn from each other, in specific academic disciplines or – what I regard as equally important – from different cultural and historical experiences. Therefore I am very grateful to the leadership of the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest – first of all Professor Paul Svasta, who served as the central point of contact for all preparatory measures – to make this unique event come true. Not to forget Mr. Petr Jirásek, who took responsibility for the whole event on behalf of AFCEA Europe. An important highlight is that the Minister Delegate for Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technological Development of the Romanian Government will deliver a welcome address in order to underline the importance of “your” conference. Although it is unfortunate that the AFCEA leadership will not be in the position to participate in the entire event due to the fact that they will be attending an AFCEA Leadership Meeting that always takes place on the occasion of the annual TechNet International events, many of them will be present for the conference opening and the first sessions to be run on March 24, including the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the President & CEO of AFCEA International. Let me wish you all the best for the conference and the associated social event. Be engaged during the conference sessions and enjoy the networking with old and new friends during the breaks and the get-together in the evening at the YESTERDAY Hotel. Again a very hearty welcome, Klaus-Peter Treche General Manager, AFCEA Europe 6th AFCEA Student Conference Program

Welcome to 6th AFCEA Student Conference

Dear participants at the 6th edition of the AFCEA Student Symposium In the name of the Organizing Committee of the 6th edition of the AFCEA Student Symposium, we would like to welcome all of you at this important event of the AFCEA Student Clubs Community. Having place at the “Politehnica” University of Bucharest, a higher education technical institution with a rich history of nearly 200 years, our conference is organized under the aegis of AFCEA Europe and AFCEA Bucharest Chapter and offers to the members of the AFCEA Student Clubs, created in universities round Europe, the possibility to present the results of their research. At the same time, the conference is a great opportunity to get acquainted with each other not only for students but also for Faculty Advisors, in this way ensuring favorable conditions for further cooperation in research projects. The participants, thanks to Dr. Andreas Wild, the Keynote speaker of the Symposium, will have the opportunity to receive a significant overview regarding the future of electronics and related fields and how the European Commission highlights the importance of electronic development for the European Union. The new EU research Program “Horizon 2020” represents a significant environment which financially can support research projects. It is our pleasure to thank Professor George Darie, Rector of the “Politehnica” University and Professor Cristian Negrescu, the Dean of the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology for the excellent conditions offered in organizing this event. Special thanks we have to address to Mr. Mihnea Costoiu, Minister Delegate, and Ministry of National Education. He has found the time to be with us at this event and his presence represents a guaranty of the importance of student research in the society. Also it is a pleasure for us to highlight the large involvement of the Secretary of State for Higher Education, Mr. Tudor Prisacaru, in organizing and supporting this event. Last but not least, the presence of industry at this event is a great occasion for the academic research to turn towards the needs of the economic environment, stimulating in this way the entrepreneurial character that the academic environment has to promote nowadays.

How to build an IT spin-off company Abstract: The presentation describes experience of academic R&D group from its foundation, EU projects participation, growth from 5 to 50 people and EU project reviewers recommendation to commercialization of the technology, up to the establishment of IT spin-off and 6 years on the market experience (pros/contras/goals/achievements). Covered technologies include application of acceleration in FPGA. Keyword: NetFlow, monitoring, NBA, FPGA We work in the company INVEA-TECH which is located in Brno, Czech Republic. Since 2003 we have been part of a research, development and later on a project group in Czech national research and education network – CESNET. We were working on a design of solutions for monitoring large scale networks based on an FPGA acceleration using wide spread industrial standard for computer network monitoring based on IP flows. We have cooperated in national projects like Liberouter, NIFIC and NIC – development of network devices based on FPGA platform. After successful participation on several European projects (e.g. SCAMPI, 6NET, GÉANT2) our group has decided to establish INVEA-TECH. Nowadays, our company is focused on innovative and effective solutions for network monitoring and security. Our products are suitable for networks from 10 Mbps up to 100 Gbps. We work with various types of clients with individual types of networks to help them analyze the network traffic and design network security monitoring solutions tailored to their specific needs. We have a deep technical background in network monitoring & security, NetFlow/IPFIX and FPGA technology. We are also interested in new trends in IP based networks, how to monitor and secure these against new threats using network security monitoring and anomaly detection techniques. After six years on the market we have reached cumulative revenue 10 million US dollars, established strong market presence in Czech Republic and started expansion to 4 priority regions – Japan, Germany, Benelux, Poland and Slovakia. We focus on channel partners and bring them significant additional revenue to their standard network and security projects. Gartner have recognized us and included us in analysis since 2010. Deloitte awarded us in CE Technology Fast 50 and we started sales or technology partnerships with Cisco, Extreme Networks 6th AFCEA Student Conference Program 15

Industry presenters

Tracking Antenna for UAV Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are usually controlled from a ground station that uses an omnidirectional antenna for communication. In this presentation, a simple, cost effective system that uses a directional antenna to extend the flight range of UAVs is presented. Keywords: unmanned aerial vehicle, directional antenna. The system is composed of a mobile platform mounted on a tripod. The platform can be moved in two direction (azimuth and elevation) using two motors. On the platform, a directional antenna, a group of sensors and a controller are mounted. The sensors are used by the controller to determine the GPS coordinate of the antenna and the direction in space to which the antenna is pointed to. Using these parameters and knowing the GPS coordinates of the UAV, the controller commands the motors in such a way that the target is kept into the antenna’s field of view. The target’s GPS coordinates are sent periodically to the controller. If this data feed is turned off, the controller predicts the current coordinate of the target using a history of previous coordinates. This is done until the data feed is resumed or until a certain amount of time passes. The controller also monitors the system for faults: undervoltage, motor malfunction, fallen tripod, strong magnetic field presence near the antenna and other hardware related faults.

Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Abstract: Social media and on-line available content continues to revolutionize means of spreading information. However, while information availability increases, the ability to analyze that information decreases. OSINT process extracts value from information. Keyword: OSINT, Intelligence cycle, on-line content, answerable questions Traditional intelligence cycle is used to enable structured conversion of raw data into usable decision making information. However, information explosion, particularly internet based, causes specific challenges in application of that process to analysis of on-line content. While OSINT process facilitates converting publicly available data into intelligence, it is worth to keep in mind that the solution to an information problem simply does not exist. Especially important is the fact to limit on-line research to a specific information requirement that needs to be fulfilled, or information request of the customer. Avoiding questions that are too general, and therefore likely to cause information overflow, which will result in inability to perform any meaningful analysis is crucial. Additionally, it is vital to understand on-line information landscape in order to be able to research in relevant sources, and in a time efficient manner. Useful information is anything, but easy to find. On-line content causes particular difficulties in assessing its reliability, and the credibility of the producer of the information is even more difficult to establish. OSINT process starts to attract attention of different industries worldwide, outside of pure intelligence community, such as insurance companies, in order to facilitate claims handling and detecting insurance fraud and scam. There are first successes, which will encourage other industries that rely on information processing to experiment with OSINT. Mr. Pawel M. ZABOROWSKI

Bucharest Bucharest (in Romanian: București) is the capital city and the commercial centre of Romania. It is located in the southeast of the country, and lies on the banks of the Dâmboviţa River. The city was first mentioned in 1459 and became the capital of Romania in 1862. Its architecture, which is a mix of historical and modern, also reflects the city's history. In the period between the World Wars, the city's elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite gave Bucharest the nickname of the "Paris of the East" or "Little Paris".
