First test cases cover conformance validation of 5G devices in high-speed train (HST) scenarios
SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 29, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has enabled the Global Certification Forum (GCF) to activate certification of 5G devices in accordance with 5G new radio (NR) 3GPP release 16 (Rel-16) specifications using Keysight’s protocol and radio frequency (RF) demodulation and radio resource management (RRM) conformance toolsets.
3GPP Rel-16 signals the advent of a second wave of 5G technology roll-out by mobile operators and enterprises targeting improved levels of reliability, security, privacy, capacity and customization. The industry milestone achieved by Keysight was confirmed at the conformance agreement group (CAG) 71 meeting held July 26 – 29. As a result, device vendors can now certify devices for GCF test cases covering high-speed train (HST) scenarios. These test cases ensure 5G devices provide consistent end-user experiences and critical communication reliability with high mobility for passengers on high-speed trains traveling at up to 500 kilometers per hour.
At the CAG meeting, it was also confirmed that Keysight was first to validate 5G new radio (NR) protocol conformance test cases which enable device vendors to verify compliance to 3GPP Rel-16 specifications related to non-public network (NPN) deployments. These test cases support 5G NR standalone (SA) mode, which requires a 5G Core (5GC) to deliver cloud-native applications, low latencies, high data rate speeds and end-to-end service orchestration, as well as enhanced capacity and coverage.
"Keysight is accelerating the market introduction of devices that support advanced 5G consumer-focused use cases, as well as 5G private network deployments," said Muthu Kumaran, general manager of Keysight's Device Validation Solutions business. "Since the completion of 3GPP Rel-16 in 2020, Keysight has collaborated with leading modem makers to speed the adoption of the latest standards. This enables a growing device ecosystem to capture early revenue opportunities associated with advanced 5G use cases."
More than one hundred mobile operators are investing in 5G NR SA underpinning many 5G advanced use cases. The CAG meeting confirmed that Keysight is the first and only test platform to validate RF demodulation and RRM test cases for 5G SA devices in frequency range 2 (FR2) covering RF transceiver (TRX), demodulation and RRM validation. It was also confirmed that Keysight was first to activate certification of 5G devices for inter radio access technology (iRAT) technical enhancements and improvements (TEI16), ensuring 5G SA devices perform smooth handovers between 5G NR and 4G LTE networks.
Keysight continues to enable chipset and device makers to verify conformance to the highest number of GCF validated protocol and RF/RRM test cases using the company’s 5G network emulation solutions. Keysight’s S8704A Protocol Conformance Toolset and S8705A RF/RRM DVT and Conformance Toolset leverage common software and hardware platforms to provide access to a comprehensive range of GCF test cases, accelerating conformance validation.

They’re not airplanes. They’re not helicopters. What skills will pilots need to fly eVTOLs?
WOBURN, Mass., Aug. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft will soon transform the skies above. But who will fly these new and novel vehicles, what skills will they need, and how will they be trained to operate platforms that feature new levels of automation?
To help answer those questions, Aptima, Inc., has been awarded a contract by the US Air Force to assist the Air Education and Training Command’s Detachment 62 (Det 62) to determine the pilot proficiencies and training needed for eVTOL operators. Det 62 supports the AFWERX Agility Prime program and is charged with developing the curriculum for eVTOL pilots and driving certification standards for an emerging market that is expected to transform civil air mobility and select military missions.
Using simulators of various eVTOL prototypes, Aptima will assess and identify the pilot competencies needed for proficient flight, including how pilots learn and perform on eVTOL platforms that have varying levels of automation. “The learnability study will help us not only understand the baseline pilot skills and competencies needed for proficient eVTOL flight, but also the impact of automation on pilot performance,” said Samantha Emerson, Training, Learning & Readiness Scientist at Aptima, and project manager for the contract. “Both experienced and novice pilots will bring unique sets of skills and capacities based on their experiences and abilities. We’ll assess how these differences affect performance in aircraft with various levels of automation”.
EVTOL prototypes range from having moderate levels of automation, that still fly like typical aircraft, to higher orders of automation, thus raising questions about the skills and training required to fly them.
In more heavily automated platforms, where pilots mostly control flight settings rather than the aircraft itself, preliminary research suggests experienced pilots tend to have more difficulty adjusting to automation than novice pilots. This is why we will look to see if experienced pilots tend to “overcontrol” of the aircraft.
“Even though a more experienced pilot may possess greater ability in controlling aircraft, not all those skills may be useful or even desired in platforms with more automation and augmentation. In fact, it may require an ‘unlearning’ and re-training of behaviors to prevent interference or conflict with automated operations,” Emerson added.
Aptima, a leader in human-machine teaming and training, will help evaluate how automation affects pilots in different eVTOLs, which existing skills will be transferable, and what new skills will require training.
Applying AFRL Technologies to eVTOL Training
To assess pilot learning and performance, Aptima will use technologies and techniques it has developed with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) over the past 15 years to measure, analyze, understand, and optimize Airman performance. These include the Performance Evaluation Training System, or PETS, which harvests data from simulators to provide objective, system-based measures, and SPOTLITE, Aptima’s handheld tool used by subject matter experts to provide observer-based measures of performance.
“Together, the objective measures from simulators and the subjective measures from what experts recognize as “good flying” produce a more complete picture of pilot learning and performance.” These findings will help Det 62 test and evaluate its eVTOL training assumptions. The findings could also influence how aircraft manufacturers design platforms in the future as we discover which aspects of flight benefit most from improved automation.
This work is funded by the U.S. Air Force via the General Services Administration under Solicitation Number 47QFLA22Q0077 / GSA ID# 47QFLA19K0069-0006 entitled, “AETC Det 62 eVTOL: Agility Prime Training Assessment Technologies for Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) Vehicles,” funded by Col Don “Stryker” Haley and Dr. Stephen B. Ellis, whom the authors wish to thank for their support.

INDIANA — By investing in research and development and enhancing workforce development, sponsors of a bipartisan U.S. Senate bill aim to support technological innovation, both from local businesses and those looking to relocate to states like Indiana.
The U.S. Innovation and Competition Act includes the bipartisan motion that promotes research and development through tax credits. The motion was authored by Sen. Todd Young, R-Indiana, and Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-New Hampshire.
The Senate is holding its first votes this week, and the legislation could be on President Joe Biden’s desk for signature before the August Congressional recess.
The legislation will allow for American manufacturers to compete globally in the market of innovation, according to Young.
One example Young gave is how the U.S. is entirely reliant on other countries for microprocessors, or computer chips, which “can be found in basically everything with an on or off switch.”
He is hoping that these incentives will convince U.S. companies to make those chips in the country.
“In particular, we are focused on investing in emerging technology areas, those technologies that are going to drive the 21st century economy. Things like hypersonics, quantum computing, autonomous systems, battery storage, artificial intelligence: The sort of technology areas that require a high level of training and sophistication to master,” Young said.
Currently the U.S. offers up to 10% in a tax credit for qualifying companies. The bill looks to double the tax credit as well as to expand it to more startup companies and small businesses.
Additionally, it would ensure that companies can continue to fully deduct research and development expenses every year.
The president of Amatrol, a manufacturing company headquartered in Jeffersonville, is in support of the bill. The company provides educational programs for technical systems in various industries.
Amatrol was founded in 1981 and Paul Perkins, president and co-founder, said that they have alway had a strong investment in research and development. However, in the last 20 years, Perkins said they have had to triple to quadruple their investment.
Perkins pointed to not only the growth of their business for this increased investment but also because of a need to keep up with the rapid advancement of technology.
By offering these tax credits, Director of Purdue Polytechnic New Albany Joseph Dues Jr. said that it spurs innovation for all companies.
“The difficult part is that we don’t know who the truly innovative company is gonna be and who’s gonna come up with the truly revolutionary idea,” Dues said. “It seems to me that the investment in the tax credits kind of helps spread the wealth so that there’s an increased likelihood of finding that winner among the local companies.”
Corey Sharp, director of statewide partnerships, and Polytechnic Anderson, Lafayette, Vincennes, Indianapolis and interim in Richmond, also noted the importance of increased capital for start up companies.
When looking at technology involving medical devices, Sharp said that navigating regulations is a big part of getting a product manufactured. Having access to more funds will allow businesses to have the staff or support to understand the regulatory environment.
Having the funds to be able to manufacture a product from the prototype or to market a product are also barriers that some entrepreneurs face, according to Sharp.
The bill does not just aim to support business through research and development investments, but by aiding in the training of workers through workforce training and education funding in each technological field.
When formulating his idea for this bill, Young said that many businesses mentioned the need for more trained workers.
In the next five to 10 years, Perkins said there will need to be several million more workers to handle the increase in new technology and manufacturing jobs.
“By some estimates, the number of students that are coming out of high school today [and] going into technical careers is about half of what the industry demand is,” he said.
Purdue Polytechnic works to support this need by educating future employees for high tech companies in the region. But Dues and Sharp both noted that there was a decrease in enrollment during the pandemic, though Sharp noted that they are on the upswing.
Perkins noticed a similar trend at Amatrol with those utilizing training programs. Going forward, he is expecting to see more growth in the technological field.
Amatrol produces training programs for many different age groups, from high schoolers to those in college to those actively working in an industry. Perkins said that they received a grant from the Department of Defense to create training for high schoolers for the rapid changes in technology, which has been deemed Industry 4.0.
Young said that the bill would allow colleges and universities to receive more funding for research. In turn, increased funding will serve to attract more young adults to Indiana and entice them to remain in the state to work, he said.
Efforts to train workers in these technology fields will also be implemented through technology hubs, which the bill intends to create.
“These would be particular regions around the heartland of America that would be designated by the federal government to receive a significant portion of the dollars allocated in this legislation,” Young said.
Along with training workers, the money would be used at the hubs to help technologies mature into products to benefit consumers, according to Young. The hubs will have a designated field of expertise based on what state or region it is located in.
Young said that there has been a lot of interest in Indiana becoming one of these technology hubs, and he thinks there is a good chance it will happen. Indiana leaders will soon apply for its designated manufacturing field.
“Once you receive that designation it will be a signal to the private market that this is a good place to work in one of those fields or to invest or in one of those fields,” he said.
With this kind of formal designation from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Young anticipates significant growth in the private sector.
With the state’s rich agricultural history and expertise in life sciences, Young said he could see Indiana potentially being designated as an agricultural informatics tech hub.
Additionally, the senator thinks Indiana has the potential to be designated as an advanced manufacturing state or be involved in the energy technology area.
The state has already seen examples of being a magnet for agricultural technology businesses.
Sharp noted that a company focused on organic biostimulants to help fertilize fields called Hello Nature Bioscience, relocated its headquarters from Italy to Anderson. Sharp said this move was because of Indiana’s tax credits (different from credits mentioned in this bill) and ability to leverage research and development.
Young said that he thinks they will have the opportunity in the next few weeks to get the final version of the bill out of Congress and in front of President Joe Biden.
July 25, 2022 Winnipeg, Manitoba Employment and Social Development Canada
Canada’s economic recovery is well underway. We have recovered 115% of the jobs lost during pandemic. In fact, our economic growth is beginning to outpace the ability of some employers to find workers. The country has faced shifting demographics, new technologies, and different practices, such as gig and part-time work. New sectors like green technology are growing rapidly. The ways we work, such as teleworking and digitalization, are creating more options for people. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that workers have the foundational and transferable skills they need to adapt, and thrive in the evolving workforce of today.
Today, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough, announced that the Government of Canada is investing over $3.8 million in Workplace Education Manitoba (WEM) through the Skills for Success program. WEM’s Workplace Connections project will help 120 people become certified Skills for Success practitioners. As practitioners, they will design and deliver employer-focused skills training, tailored to the specific needs of 60 different workplaces, predominantly in manufacturing. About 500 workers across Canada, including in Manitoba, will benefit from this training.
Launched in May 2021, the Skills for Success program focuses on nine foundational and transferable skills that Canadians need to participate, adapt and thrive in learning, work and life. They include foundational skills like writing, studying and numeracy, and socio-emotional skills – the human skills required for effective social interaction, such as collaboration, communication, problem solving, adaptability, and creativity and innovation.
The Skills for Success program is helping address Canada’s immediate and long-term training needs, particularly for under-represented groups in the labour market, including Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities and racialized Canadians. The projects funded by the Skills for Success program will contribute to an estimated 90,000 job training opportunities, helping deliver on the Government’s commitment to create 500,000 new training and work opportunities for Canadians.
“As new industries emerge, and the ways that we work evolve, we need to ensure Canadians have the foundational skills to adapt and thrive in any workplace. Through the Skills for Success Program, we’re investing in partners across the country like Workplace Education Manitoba, who are helping to create a strong, skilled and resilient workforce for Canada.”
– Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough
“Ensuring Canadians have the skills they need for both the jobs of today, and tomorrow, are critical in addressing the labour shortage in several industries and sectors across our economy. Our government’s investments in skills training here in Manitoba will help develop those needed skills, fill those jobs, and grow an inclusive economy that works for everyone.
– Minister of Northern Affairs, Minister for PrairiesCan, Minister for CanNor, and Member of Parliament for Saint Boniface – Saint Vital, Dan Vandal
“As organizations across Canada navigate post-Covid labour pool shifts, the ability to have a skilled, adaptable, and resilient workforce is increasingly important. This investment from the Government of Canada will empower individuals in the fields of leadership, human resources, training and development to become certified and integrate these competencies into their training.”
– Kara Finney, Chief Executive Officer, Workplace Education Manitoba
Workplace Education Manitoba is receiving an investment of $3,893,050 for its Workplace Connections Skills for Success project.
Announced in Budget 2021, the Government of Canada is investing nearly $298M over three years in the Skills for Success Program. This funding will support Canadians at all skill levels to Strengthen their foundational and transferable skills to better prepare for, get and keep a job, and adapt and succeed at work.
Currently, 45 per cent of Canadians lack the literacy, numeracy, and digital skills that are increasingly necessary to succeed in jobs in the knowledge economy.
