Title: Route Sanitizer: Connected Vehicle Trajectory De-Identification Tool

Abstract

Route Sanitizer is ORNL's connected vehicle moving object database de-identification tool and a graphical user interface to ORNL's connected vehicle de-identification algorithm. It uses the Google Chrome (soon to be Electron) platform so it will run on different computing platforms. The basic de-identification strategy is record redaction: portions of a vehicle trajectory (e.g. sequences of precise temporal spatial records) are removed. It does not alter retained records. The algorithm uses custom techniques to find areas within trajectories that may be considered private, then it suppresses those in addition to enough of the trajectory surrounding those locations to protect against "inference attacks" in a mathematically sound way. Map data is integrated into the process to make this possible.

  • An analysis has been made of a method for postflight reconstruction of reentry vehicle states and the identification of associated model parameters using the Trajectory Analysis Program (TRAP). The present investigation focuses on the extent to which a reduced order dynamical model can be utilized to reconstruct reentry vehicle trajectories and to estimate aerodynamic coefficients from onboard observations of the vehicle motion. The feature of local arc trajectory partitioning is disucssed and its application to the reentry vehicle problem is described. Numerical results derived from simulated measurements are presented which illustrate the feasibility of this approach.
  • PTMSearchPlus is a software tool for the automated integration of accurate intact protein mass (AIPM) and bottom-up (BU) mass spectra searches/data in order to both confidently identify the intact proteins and to characterize their post-translational modifications (PTMs). The development of PTMSearchPlus was motivated by the desire to effectively integrate high resolution intact protein molecular masses with bottom-up peptide MS/MS data. PTMSearchPlus requires as input both intact protein and proteolytic peptide mass spectra collected from the same protein mixture, a FASTA protein database, and a selection of possible PTMs, the types and ranges of which can be specified. The output ofmore » PTMSearchPlus is a list of intact and modified proteins matching the AIPM data concomitant with their respective peptides found by the BU search. This list also contains protein and peptide sequence coverage information, scores, etc. that can be used for further evaluation or refiltering of the results. Corresponding and annotated AIPM and BU mass spectra are also displayed for visual inspection when a listed protein or a peptide is selected. These and other controls ensure that the user can manually evaluate, modify (e.g. remove obvious false positives, low quality spectra etc.), and save the results of the automated search if necessary. Driven by the exponential growth in the number of possible peptide candidates in a BU search when multiple PTMs are probed, the advantages on search speed by limiting the total number of possible PTMs on a peptide in the BU search or by performing an AIPM predicted BU search are also discussed in addition to the integration approach. The features of PTMSearchPlus are demonstrated using both a protein standard mixture and a complex protein mixture from Escherichia coli. Experimental data revealed a unique advantage of coupling AIPM and the BU datasets that is mutually beneficial for both approaches. Namely, AIPM data can confirm that no PTM peptides were missed in a BU search, while the BU search determines the location of the PTM. This information is not available using an AIPM search alone.« less

  • The optimum range of the independent parameters for an ORGEL reactor associated with a 250-Mw power plant and using fuel elements consisting of four uc rods in clusters was determined. The parameters for two optimum power plants, differing only in coolant flow rates, are given. (D.C.W.)
  • The optimum zone of the independent variables of an ORGEL reactor connected to a 250-MW power plant was investigated. These independent variables determine the fuel element geometry (7-rod type) as well as the geometry of the reactor core and the operation of the plant. Characteristics of two optimal power plandts are given. (auth)
