2. In the Glossary to the SCOMET list, the following expressions shall be substituted:

“Contouring control”

Two or more “numerically controlled” motions operating in accordance with instructions that specify the next required position and the required feed rates to that position. These feed rates are varied in relation to each other so that a desired contour is generated. (Ref. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 2806-(1994) as amended)’

‘ “Cryptography”

The discipline which embodies principles, means and methods for the transformation of data in order to hide its information content, prevent its undetected modification or prevent its unauthorized use. “Cryptography” is limited to the transformation of information using one or more ‘secret parameters’ (e.g., crypto variables) or associated key management.

Notes

1. “Cryptography” does not include techniques.

2. “Cryptography” includes decryption.

Technical Notes

1. ‘Secret parameter’: a constant or key kept from the knowledge of others or shared only within a group.

2. ‘Fixed’: the coding or compression algorithm cannot accept externally supplied parameters (e.g., cryptographic or key variables) and cannot be modified by the user’

“Numerical control”

The automatic control of a process performed by a device that makes use of numeric data usually introduced as the operation is in progress. (Ref. ISO 2382 (2015)’

“Resolution”

The least increment of a measuring device; on digital instruments, the least significant bit. (Ref. American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B-89.1.12)’

“Radiant sensitivity”

Radiant sensitivity (mA/W) = 0.807 x (wavelength in nm) x Quantum Efficiency (QE).

Technical Note

QE is usually expressed as a percentage; however, for the purposes of this formula QE is expressed as a decimal number less than one, e.g., 78% is 0.78. ‘

“Satellite navigation system”

A system consisting of ground stations, a constellation of satellites, and receivers. that enables receiver locations to be calculated on the basis of signals received from the satellites. It includes Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and Regional Navigation Satellite Systems (RNSS).’

“Stability”

Standard deviation (1 sigma) of the variation of a particular parameter from its calibrated value measured under stable temperature conditions. This can be expressed as a function of time.

Statement of Understanding

For gyroscopes and accelerometers, “stability” can be estimated by determining the Allan variance noise-analysis value at the integration period (i.e., sample time) consistent with the stated measurement period, which may include extrapolating the Allan variance noise analysis beyond the instability point into the rate/acceleration random walk or rate/acceleration ramp regions to an integration period consistent with the slated measurement period (Reference: IEEE Std 952-1997 [R2008] or IEEE Std 1293-1998 [R2008]). ‘
