Abstract: Objective of the talk is to analyze influence of modern IT such as Big Data Analytics (BDA), Internet of Things (IoT) and other modern technologies on safety and security of human and industry. We will discuss so called 3B problem  (“Big” Data, “Big” security, “Big” accidents) caused by, on the one side, application of IoT and BDA for system safety and security assurance, and, on the other side, challenges of secure application assurance of the technologies themselves. It concerns critical domains such as aerospace and automotive, nuclear plants and energy grids, health systems and others. Concepts of safety and cyber safety considering security and cyber security attributes are analysed basing on multi-level cyber space. The benefits and limitations of application of BDA and IoT based technologies in safety critical systems to avoid, monitor and minimize consequences of severe accidents are discussed.  Essentially such technologies aren’t green, safe and secure and it’s required deep analysis of deficits, first of all, cyber security and safety before their usage. The industrial cases, where IoT and BDA are applied such as Internet of Drones based system for monitoring of critical infrastructure accident, IoT based monitoring and control system, system for prediction of software dependability are considered.

Abstract: Wideband and high gain array antennas have been studied by triplate stripline resonator antenna. And a feeding stripline circuit was under the ground metal plate of the above antenna. Fluorinated material has been used to compose three-layer stripline circular polarization antennas. Enough wide bandwidth 20% of the center frequency and high gain 24 dB was realized by 64-antenna array, but the size 280 mm φ was not enough compact for installation into tankers. Recent studies and problems will be presented in this lecture. A novel X-band antenna is composed of glass-epoxy substrate with high dielectric constant 4~5. The size will be 220 mm φ in estimation of 64-antenna array. It was found that precise deign was needed for wideband and high performance at X-band.
