Abstract: An automatic speed control system that provides desired watercraft velocity over land. The coupled algorithms correct engine speed and torque using inertia based measurements, GPS, and tachometer measurements, and the corrections are augmented and enhanced by velocity/speed and torque/speed relationships that are dynamically and adaptively programmed with real-time data collected during replicated operations of the watercraft in specified conditions.

Abstract: The present invention concerns the use of D-Mannose to prevent or inhibit uniting of sperm and egg in the conception process. The administration of D-Mannose to a female such that the environment of an egg has sufficient D-Mannose to inhibit interaction of sperm and the egg and prevent or inhibit conception. D-Mannose dosages may be complimentary to other methods of birth control to enhance their effectiveness.
