  • Patent number: 10365068
    Abstract: A laser system operationally coupled to an aimable device having a Line of Sight (LOS), and adapted for providing a graphic laser display, including: at least one laser source adapted to generate: a first laser output, displaying a fixed pattern at a hit point having a fixed orientation relative to an axis of the LOS of the aimable device, and a second laser output, forming the graphic laser display; a motion control mechanism adapted to direct at least the second laser output; a tracking system configured to track at least one target; and a processing unit, configured to receive tracking data relating to a location of the at least one target relative to the LOS of the aimable device and instruct the motion control mechanism to direct the second laser output to display the graphic laser display on the at least one target.

  • Patent number: 10097764
    Abstract: A firearm aiming system comprising an imaging system comprising an imaging sensor and an image processor; and a user display, wherein the imaging system is adapted to detect a potential target on the user display based on target features. In some embodiments the system includes a firing processor with an epsilon logic module for calculating a target aim-point/area used by the firing processor to make a firing decision.

  • Patent number: 9127909
    Abstract: An aiming system of an aimable device includes a user display, an imaging system, user controls, a tracker, and a range finder such as a LRF. The imaging system displays, on the user display, an indicator of the direction in which the device points. The user uses the user controls to lock on a target towards which the device points according to the indicator. Then the tracker tracks the target, and the range finder measures the range to the tracked target. The tracker aims the range finder at the target, or alternatively scans the target and its background, one-dimensionally or two-dimensionally.

  • Patent number: 7761173
    Abstract: A method to provide feedback to an operator of a device having feedback delay. The method includes the steps of displaying a first image of a view from the device, the device being at a first position, issuing a movement command to cause a desired movement of the device to a second position, and displaying a second image of a predicted view from the device at the second position prior to the operator receiving real feedback of the movement command.

  • Patent number: 7738723
    Abstract: A method for displaying digital images on a display device. The method includes obtaining an input image set including one or more input image, processing the input image set to generate an output image set including a number of output images, displaying the output image set in a sequence on the display device at a frame rate in excess of five frames per second. The first and second image-processing transformations and the sequence are chosen such that a time-integrated average luminance in each region of the display over successive frames approximates to the luminance distribution of a corresponding region of the input image set.

  • Publication number: 20060061752
    Abstract: A system for automatic mapping of a walled structure includes at least one mobile unit, preferably worn by a user. The mobile unit has a position tracking system for tracking a current position of the mobile unit, a wall detection system including a sensor arrangement for measuring range data from the mobile unit to at least four points, and a mapping processor associated with both the position tracking system and the wall detection system. The mapping processor processes the range data and, if the at least four points lie on a common plane according to a defined criterion, maps a wall in corresponding spatial relation to the current position. The mobile unit preferably also includes a wireless communication link for transmitting and receiving data indicative of the mapped walls to other mobile units and to a remote command control unit.
