  • Publication number: 20200136228
    Abstract: An inflatable antenna may include an inflatable sock, an antenna, and an attachment port. The inflatable sock may have an inflated state and a deflated state, where the inflatable sock assumes an elongated inflated shape in the inflated state. The antenna may extend along the length of the inflatable sock. The attachment port may be configured for operable connection to an inflation mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20190190139
    Abstract: Inflatable antenna assemblies are provided, including an inflatable container having an inflated state and a deflated state, the inflatable container having an interior surface and an exterior surface, a flexible antenna extending along the interior surface or the exterior surface of the inflatable container, such that the antenna deploys to an operable, extended configuration upon inflation of the inflatable container to the inflated state, and a port configured for operable connection to an inflation mechanism to inflate the container to the inflated state. Safety device structures, such as life rafts, life preservers, life jackets, buoys, and emergency beacons, having inflatable antenna portions, are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20150049052
    Abstract: Often times, a touch-sensitive area of a touch-screen of a communication device is touched by a finger or a hand of a user. In some instances, a touch-based stylus of the present disclosure is available to the user. The user touches the touch-sensitive area of the communication device with the touch-based stylus. The communication device induces a current within the touch-based stylus. This induced current causes a voltage to accumulate within the passive object when touched by the user. This accumulated voltage transfers to the touch-sensitive area when the touch-based stylus touches the touch-sensitive area of the communication device. Thereafter, the communication device compares signal metrics of various regions of the touch-sensitive area to detect an instance and/or a location of the touch from the touch-based stylus.

  • Publication number: 20120271121
    Abstract: A biometric device configured to be attached to a portion of a body of a user measures biometric data of the user. The device includes an optical emitter, a wavelength filter, an optical sensor and a processor, for sending a light to the body of a user, receiving light received from the user, filtering and processing it to measure biometric data of the user, including for example, heart rate and blood flow rate. In addition, the biometric device may include other sensors, such as a galvanic skin response sensor, an ambient temperature sensor, skin temperature, motion sensor, etc., to enable the biometric device to measure arousal or conductivity changing events, ambient temperature, user temperature and motion associated with the user. Additionally, information from each sensor may be used to further filter noise in one or more signals received by the sensors to provide biometric data to the user.

  • Patent number: 8206089
    Abstract: A flow control device for controlling fluid flow into a turbine comprising a stator and a rotor located in a fluid flow direction downstream of the stator is provided. The stator has a plurality of vanes extending radially inwards from a casing. Nozzles are defined, with each being defined between each adjacent pair of vanes. A flow controller is arranged to control a nozzle area open for fluid flow from a stator to rotor by altering the radial length of at least one of the nozzles and comprises an actuator and baffle plates connected at first ends thereof to a periphery of the turbine and at second ends thereof to arcuate plates of the actuator. Each baffle plate extends through a corresponding nozzle from an upstream to a downstream side of the stator. The actuator may selectively move the baffle plates to adjust flow through the nozzles.
