  • Patent number: 6097329
    Abstract: A meteorological radar apparatus which calculates a shift of the pulse synchronization of a transmission pulse signal output from a transmission unit and corrects the transmission timing of the transmission pulse signal based on the shift of the pulse synchronization so that the Doppler velocity of a reference target becomes zero, thereby preventing deterioration in the measurement accuracy of the Doppler velocity caused by the shift of the pulse synchronization of the transmission pulse signal.

  • Patent number: 6091837
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided for measuring patterns in an at least partially heat conducting surface. The method includes the steps of bringing a plurality of surface sensor elements into thermal contact with a substantial part of a surface to be examined, heating the plurality of surface sensor elements with a supplied heat, measuring a temperature or a change in temperature of each surface sensor element one or more times, or continuously, comparing the measured temperature or the change in temperature in each surface sensor element to the supplied heat to provide a measure of a loss of heat from each surface sensor element to the surface to be examined, and collocating the loss of heat at each surface sensor element to provide a segmented picture of the surface to be examined based upon a variation in the loss of heat from the plurality of surface sensor elements.

  • Patent number: 6087099
    Abstract: A method is presented which uses a unique opposite strand joining strategy during PCR of an original DNA to generate a product which, when sequenced with a single sequencing primer yields the sequence of both strands of the original DNA. The PCR primers include 1) a modified oligomer corresponding to the 5' end of a first strand of the DNA to be amplified wherein said modified oligomer includes the reverse complementary sequence to a sequence within said first strand of DNA and a specific PCR priming sequence which will specifically hybridize to a portion of the DNA to be amplified and 2) a second oligomer corresponding to the 5' end of the second strand of the DNA to be amplified and which contains the priming sequence for the second strand of the DNA and will specifically hybridize to a portion of the DNA to be amplified. During PCR an intermediate product is formed where one end of one strand loops around to hybridize to its complement on the same strand.

  • Patent number: 6082153
    Abstract: An anti-tamper locking assembly for locking a position of a block, such as a locking bolt in an electronic lock, electrically moves a pin to engage or dis-engage the block. When dis-engaged, the block can be moved and access or the like can be made. The pin is selectively moved electronically in order to allow access, entry or the like. The pin can be moved with, e.g., a solenoid. The pin has an overhanging portion, or a head portion. In order to prevent an individual from forcing the pin into an un-locked position, the head portion operates in conjunction with at least one spring-arm member and a blocker which are fixed to the block to prevent a user from being able to strike the device with a hammer or the like to "temporarily" move the pin to a position allowing the block to be moved and access or the like to be made.
