  • Patent number: 10900782
    Abstract: Method for operation of a strap-down ship's gyro compass for optimal calculation of position and course angle on a ship, with three rotational rate sensors each mutually aligned to each other at a right angle, and two nominally horizontally aligned orthogonal acceleration sensors, without required specification of the geographic latitude and/or of the speed of the ship, characterized by the steps: a. Preparation of a set of dynamic equations based on the angular velocity components detected by the rotational rate sensor, b. Preparation of a measured data equation based on the force components detected by the acceleration sensors, c. Determination of the properties of the lever arm between the strap-down ship's gyro compass and the point of rotation of the ship, and d.

  • Patent number: 9075145
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, a method for combining data from multiple radar signals on a single PPI includes receiving, from a first radar device having a first angular range of visibility, first radar signal data corresponding to the first angular range of visibility. The method further includes receiving, from a second radar device having a second angular range of visibility, second radar signal data corresponding to the second angular range of visibility. The method further includes performing compensation processing on at least a portion of the second radar signal data to form modified second radar signal data that is correlated to the first radar signal data. The method further includes combining at least a portion the first radar signal data with at least a portion of the modified second radar signal data to form combined radar signal data and generating, based on the combined radar signal data, a display on a radar PPI display.

  • Patent number: 9024811
    Abstract: A processing device for providing radar data onto a local area network includes an analog-to-digital converter operable to receive analog radar data from an antenna and converter operable to convert the analog radar data into digital radar data. An interference rejector removes radar signals of other antennas from the digital radar data. A range bin decimator limits the digital radar data to a threshold number of range bins. A trigger-to-azimuth converter associates the digital radar data to particular azimuths of rotation of the antenna. A local area network manager places the digital radar data onto a local area network. The processing device may be located in the pedestal with the antenna. A plurality of processing devices associated with a plurality of antennas may provide digital radar data onto the local area network.

  • Patent number: 5870171
    Abstract: The invention concerns the elimination of the image steadiness error in the projection of films, which consist of individual images.For this purpose, the image steadiness error is detected by a sensor and is compensated for by a device for step size compensation.An apparatus for the measurement of the image position in the projection films which consist of individual images has a sensor for the measurement of the image steadiness error by making use of the perforation.In a device for the correction of an image steadiness error of films which consist of individual images, an optical compensator is arranged before the films as an optical storage medium and/or before the optical photography medium.

  • Patent number: 4844046
    Abstract: An improved operating mechanism for an air gun is disclosed which features an attenuation element interposed between the operating level and the other elements of the gun. The attenuation element may comprise a single acting gas spring, such that the operating lever is prevented from violent motion returning it to the open position upon release during the closing movement from the open to the closed position, but in which movement of the lever from the open to the closed position is not impeded by the attenuation element.

  • Patent number: 4473964
    Abstract: A recoilless competition rifle or competition pistol with an action which is mounted and guided in the firearm so as to be longitudinally displaceable on bearings and which returns during firing. The bearings have special beddings which compensate for deviations of the bearing axes from their ideal desired positions by adapting their shape to the particular conditions. Bearings made of elastic materials provide for a reversible displacement of material. Beddings comprise materials which can be poured or kneaded and which then solidify in situ to assume their final form as a result of direct shaping (initial shaping) on the delimiting surfaces.

  • Patent number: 4369759
    Abstract: In a sporting air gun in the nature of a recoilless pressurized-air weapon, having a recoilable system which is translatably mounted so as to slide forward and backward on the gunstock of the weapon in a direction which is generally longitudinal. The recoil system compensates by opposed motion the impulse from the firing of the weapon arising from the impulse of each projectile, from the propellant gas, and from individual components which are accelerated for the purpose of the firing. The system minimally comprises a breech casing to which a barrel, a firing mechanism, other functional parts of the weapon, or added masses may be attached to increase the weight of the system. The system has a center of mass lying off the line of action of the impulse resulting from the firing, whereby a torsional impulse is superposed on the firing-resultant impulse. The improvement in the air gun includes at least one torsional impulse generator which is positioned in or on the weapon.

  • Patent number: 4300302
    Abstract: An adjustable pistol grip for a competition rifle or the like having three basic embodiments. In one embodiment, balls and sockets are located in the pistol grip and stock or body of the rifle. The balls and sockets are connected by a rod which is adjustably clamped either by a hydraulic piston, screw ring or expanding ball, in the socket. The connecting rod may be two part, each displaceably clampable relative to the other. Another embodiment employs a flexible wire fixed to the stock and pistol grip. On the wire are perforated balls alternating with short cylinders and a screw or lever which can apply tension to the array to hold the pistol grip required in any position in relation to the stock. Another embodiment employs a universal joint, one member of which is rigidly fixed to the pistol grip or stock, and the other member of which is rigidly fixed to a rod which is adjustably held in a mount supplied with a clamp.

  • Patent number: 4275521
    Abstract: An electro-mechanical triggering mechanism for fire arms which comprises a signal receiver used as an input unit which converts a shot-triggering signal generated by the user pulling the trigger into an electrical signal and an electro-mechanical converter which forms an output unit, which unit receives the electrical signal from the input unit and acts on a shot-triggering element to initiate the shot. The improvement consists in that the electro-mechanical converter is an electrically or electro-magnetically deformable piezo-active element which is mechanically connected to the shot-triggering element to initiate the shot. The piezo-active element can be a cantilevered bending bar; a hollow body filled with piezo-active liquid which is capable of moving a piston or elastic membrane; or a bending bar having a series of longitudinally extending bores having electrically conductive walls throughout its middle.
