  • Patent number: 8290316
    Abstract: The general field of the invention is that of fiber-optic sensors comprising at least one measurement optical fiber having an optically pumped doped amplifying medium, the optical characteristics of which are sensitive to a physical quantity, the fiber having at least one Bragg grating. The fiber is designed so as to generate, in the amplifying medium, two optical waves having different optical frequencies that propagate in the same direction after reflection on the Bragg grating and are emitted by the amplifying medium, the two optical frequencies depending on the physical quantity. The two waves may be generated using either a birefringent polarization-maintaining fiber or a DBR (Distributed Bragg Reflector) laser cavity. Notably, this sensor may be used as a hydrophone.

  • Patent number: 8290644
    Abstract: In a method for aiding aircraft landing using a GPS and an MLS within the context of a computed axial approach, the method uses coordinates of an azimuth antenna and/or of an elevation antenna as a reference point for the computation of a position of the aircraft in a reference frame centered on the landing runway. This position of the aircraft is thereafter used to determine an angle of azimuth between a longitudinal axis of the landing runway and the aircraft.

  • Patent number: 8281758
    Abstract: A four-cycle engine with an enclosed oil reservoir for mounting on a power tool is provided. An oil pump driven by a camshaft, which mates by a cam gear with crank gear that is driven by a crank shaft, inhales the oil from the oil reservoir to lubricate the engine parts. A circular arc wall surrounds around web of the crankshaft with a slight distance from the web. A scroll-shaped wall has gradually increased distance from the circular arc wall to the direction of rotation of the web and has partial overlap with the circular arc wall. In case of stock of engine oriented power take off side up or down, oil is prevented to flow from oil reservoir to combustion chamber by a weir which is provided between the circular wall and the scrolled wall. The check valve splashes breathing missed oil from the crankshaft to the breather room and causes the oil to supply lubricant to lubricate the engine parts.
