  • Patent number: 10384790
    Abstract: An engine mount assembly for coupling an engine to an airframe includes a torsion bar, a lateral movement control assembly and a vertical movement control assembly. The torsion bar has a torsional stiffness and is coupled between the engine and the airframe such that torsional movement of the engine causes torsion in the torsion bar. The lateral movement control assembly has a lateral stiffness and is coupled between the torsion bar and the airframe such that lateral movement of the engine causes rotation of the torsion bar which reacts on lateral movement control assembly. The vertical movement control assembly has a vertical stiffness and is coupled between the engine and the airframe such that vertical movement of the engine reacts on the vertical movement control assembly. The engine mount assembly, thereby enables torsional, lateral and vertical movement of the engine to be independently controlled.

  • Patent number: 9673514
    Abstract: Some embodiments relate to a multiband antenna array formed on a flexible substrate. Low frequency antenna elements may be formed using nanoink. High frequency elements may be provided on a prefabricated antenna chip. The antenna array may be heated in a low temperature oven to sinter the nanoink into a solid antenna element. In some embodiments, an adhesive insulation layer may be provided which allows the antenna array to be attached to any surface. In other embodiments, the antenna array may be embedded in a composite material.

  • Patent number: 7378782
    Abstract: The disclosed invention relates to achieving micromachined piezoelectrically-actuated diaphragms. The piezoelectric diaphragm includes a central, inactive electrode free region and an annular shaped interdigitated electrode adjacent to the outer periphery of the central region. The diaphragm also may have an inactive annular, electrode free region and an active central, interdigitated electrode region. The diaphragms may be used in, such as, miniature pumps. The pumps may include a plurality of chambers to generate peristaltic pumping of fluids.
