  • Publication number: 20220150418
    Abstract: A system for stitching images together is disclosed. The images are sometimes referred to as frames, such as frames in a video sequence. The system comprises one or more imagers (e.g. cameras) that work in coordination with a matching amount of custom code modules. The system achieves image stitching using approximately one third the Field of View (FOV) of each imager (camera) and also by increasing the number of imagers to be above a predetermined threshold. The system displays these stitched images or frames on a computer monitor, either in a still-image context but also in a video-context. Normally these tasks would involve a great detail of computation, but the system achieves these effects while managing the computational load. In stitching the images together, it is sometimes necessary to introduce some image distortion (faceting) in the combined image. The system ensures no gaps in any captured view, and assists in achieving full situational awareness for a viewer.

  • Patent number: 6812806
    Abstract: A high power switchable power combiner includes a plurality of input ports and a plurality of matching elements. The matching elements are arranged to be used in combination when more than two of the input ports are connected. A thermally conductive dielectric member may be provided between the inner conductor of the combiner and the conductive housing thereof to provide a thermal path to dissipate heat from the center conductor.
