The purpose of PSO design is twofold: (1) to overcome the bandwidth competition between data traffic and control traffic for the in-band control network, (2) to provide high-priority packet-in messages, based on packet contents (such as real-time services) for both in-band and out-of-band control network.
The Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS), which enables rapid detection of nuclear detonations, missile and space launches, was fully analyzed, while the Air Force satellite control network designed for seamless command, control and communication with space vehicles was part of a limited review.
They used bilateral nucleus accumbens (NAcc) seeds (i.e., the fMRI time-series generated by the left and right NAcc) to probe the reward and appetitive drive network by identifying regions with synchronous fMRI responses, and a subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (sgACC) seed to probe the executive control network. All subjects also performed the intra-/extradimensional set shift task (IED; Cambridge Cognition 2006) outside of the scanner, and the study correlated their performance with the synchrony of the neural networks at rest.
