  • Publication number: 20190384747
    Abstract: A data analysis system is proposed for providing fine-grained low latency access to high volume input data from possibly multiple heterogeneous input data sources. The input data is parsed, optionally transformed, indexed, and stored in a horizontally-scalable key-value data repository where it may be accessed using low latency searches. The input data may be compressed into blocks before being stored to minimize storage requirements. The results of searches present input data in its original form. The input data may include access logs, call data records (CDRs), e-mail messages, etc. The system allows a data analyst to efficiently identify information of interest in a very large dynamic data set up to multiple petabytes in size. Once information of interest has been identified, that subset of the large data set can be imported into a dedicated or specialized data analysis system for an additional in-depth investigation and contextual analysis.

  • Publication number: 20190289471
    Abstract: Multiple mobile cellular network (MCN) communication systems can be networked together to form a network of MCN communication systems (NOM). Each MCN communication system within the NOM can operate as an independent cellular network to provide communications between user equipment within a covered area. The MCN can be managed by a network management control center (NMCC). The NMCC can be configured generate coverage maps of the NOM and NMC system coverage areas.

  • Patent number: 10383981
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a stabilized cross-linked hydrogel matrix comprising a first high molecular weight component and a second high molecular weight component that are covalently linked, and at least one stabilizing or enhancing agent, wherein the first high molecular weight component and the second high molecular weight component are each selected from the group consisting of polyglycans and polypeptides. This stabilized hydrogel matrix may be prepared as bioactive gels, pastes, slurries, cell attachment scaffolds for implantable medical devices, and casting or binding materials suitable for the construction of medical devices. The intrinsic bioactivity of the hydrogel matrix makes it useful as a gel or paste in multiple applications, including as a cell attachment scaffold that promotes wound healing around an implanted device, as gels and pastes for induction of localized vasculogenesis, wound healing, tissue repair, and regeneration, as a wound adhesive, and for tissue bulking.

  • Publication number: 20190067831
    Abstract: A superluminal antenna element having a transmission line feed, and an array comprising a plurality of such antenna elements, is presented. In one example, the antenna element includes a dielectric base portion having a cutout area, a mode transition element coupled to the cutout, a stripline transmission line connected to the mode transition, and a dielectric radiator element disposed within the cutout. The cutout of the dielectric base portion has first and second pluralities of steps arranged in opposing pairs. The mode transition element is located below and coupled to the cutout area of the dielectric base portion. The dielectric radiator element is mounted within the cutout area in an opposing pair of steps. Imposing a time-varying signal on the dielectric radiator element by way of the transmission line, mode transition element, and stepped cutout induces a polarization current in the dielectric radiator element.

  • Patent number: 10161162
    Abstract: A mount is provided for securing an escutcheon on a door. The mount comprises a plate member having a central aperture and an upper pair of elongated slots and a lower pair of elongated slots. Each of the elongated slots extends parallel to a central longitudinal axis of the plate member. A mounting stud is slidably received in at least one of the upper pair of elongated slots and the lower pair of elongated slots for positioning of the stud relative to the central aperture, wherein the studs can be located at selected distances from the central aperture for alignment with a hole through the door.

  • Publication number: 20180252407
    Abstract: A home cooking appliance includes a cooktop surface and a gas pedestal burner on the cooktop surface. The gas pedestal burner includes a burner portion having a sidewall, a lower surface facing the cooktop surface, a plurality of burner ports in the sidewall, and a base portion under the burner portion. The base portion elevates the burner portion in a vertical direction above the cooktop surface and has a lower mounting surface disposed on the cooktop surface. An area of a footprint of the lower mounting surface of the base portion is less than an area of a footprint of the lower surface of the burner portion.

  • Publication number: 20180014340
    Abstract: A wireless mobile communication device can receive one or more network parameters from a network gateway and identify a network associated with the network parameters based on stored network information of networks with which the device is configured to join and/or network gateways with which the device is configured to communicate. The device can identify private network information associated with the identified network that will enable the device to access one or more private networks via the identified network. Once the device obtains access to the identified network, the device can set up one or more virtual private network (VPN) tunnels to join one or more private networks accessible via the identified network. When using two or more VPN tunnels, one VPN tunnel can be nested within another VPN tunnel.
