  • Patent number: 10331143
    Abstract: A suspension system for a marine vessel, the marine vessel including a body portion at least partially supported relative to at least a left hull and a right hull by the suspension system, the left and right hulls being moveable relative to each other and the body, the suspension system including resilient supports between the body portion and the left and right hulls. The suspension system providing at least a roll stiffness being arranged to provide a roll moment distribution (RMD) of the suspension system wherein roll forces effectively act at a position disposed within a longitudinal distance along the marine vessel from a steady state position of the resultant pressure forces acting on the left and right hulls when the marine vessel is operating in a planing or semi-planing mode. The longitudinal distance can be 20% or less of a waterline length of one of the at least a left and a right hull at design load in displacement mode.

  • Patent number: 10286980
    Abstract: A vessel is disclosed having a body portion that is at least partially suspended above at least one left moveable hull and at least one right moveable hull, each hull being moveable with respect to the body portion. At least one sensor is arranged to sense at least one operational parameter of the vessel. The roll attitude of the body portion is adjustable and controlled during operation in response to the at least one operational parameter to ensure that the sum of the gravitational force and the centrifugal force acting on the vessel during a turn has a line of action that is substantially perpendicular to a deck of the vessel, i.e. that the vessel executes a coordinated turn.

  • Publication number: 20070079460
    Abstract: A toilet cleaner (1012) is mounted on a cleaning device and cleaning is effected by bristles (1034) and scrapers (1052, 1053). The toilet cleaner (1012) is discharged from a cleaning device by a pusher on that device sliding down and knocking the toilet cleaner off. The toilet cleaner (1012) is flushed down the toilet with water flowing through the hollow toilet cleaner and out of an opening (1082) at the leading end of said toilet cleaner. The toilet cleaner (1012) then degrades or dissolves and is biodegradable.

  • Publication number: 20060229077
    Abstract: A system and method for implementing soft handoffs in a communications system on a mobile platform. The system employs an antenna controller in communication with a beam forming network that generates two independently aimable lobes from a single beam. The single beam is radiated by a phased array antenna on the mobile platform. In an Air-to-Ground implementation involving an aircraft, a base transceiver station (BTS) look-up position table is utilized to provide the locations of a plurality of BTS sites within a given region that the aircraft is traversing. The antenna controller controls the beam forming network to generate dual lobes from the single beam that facilitate making a soft handoff from one BTS site to another.

  • Publication number: 20060229103
    Abstract: A point-to-multipoint communications system. The system uses an antenna to generate a single beam having independently steerable, narrow lobes. The phase array and amplitude array distributions used to form the lobes are controlled so that the lobes track and provide full duplex communication links with two or more RF terminals in two or more remote locations. In certain embodiments the dual lobe beam is generated from a fixed, ground-based location, and in other embodiments the single beam is generated from an airborne mobile platform, a mobile land vehicle, or a marine vessel. The various embodiments all enable one, two or more full duplex communication links to be established and maintained with a single beam.

  • Publication number: 20050017897
    Abstract: A method of reducing depolarization of a wireless signal passing through an antenna radome. An angle of incidence of the signal relative to the radome is determined. From the determined angle of incidence, at least one offset to signal depolarization attributable to the radome is determined. The offset is applied to the signal to reduce depolarization of the signal. When the foregoing method is implemented, effects of radome depolarization in transmit and/or receive modes can be substantially reduced or eliminated.
