  • Patent number: 10371794
    Abstract: A system for bistatic radar target detection employs an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) having a ramjet providing supersonic cruise of the UAV. Deployable antenna arms support a passive radar receiver for bistatic reception of reflected radar pulses. The UAV operates with a UAV flight profile in airspace beyond a radar range limit. The deployable antenna arms have a first retracted position for supersonic cruise and are adapted for deployment to a second extended position acting as an airbrake and providing boresight alignment of the radar receiver. A mothership aircraft has a radar transmitter for transmitting radar pulses and operates with an aircraft flight profile outside the radar range limit. A communications data link operably interconnects the UAV and the tactical mothership aircraft, transmitting data produced by the bistatic reception of reflected radar pulses in the UAV radar antenna to the mothership aircraft.

  • Patent number: 10362498
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for coordinated multipoint receiver processing acceleration and latency reduction. In an exemplary embodiment, an apparatus includes a receiver that receives symbols from a wireless transmission and stores the symbols in a memory. The receiver also outputs an indicator that indicates that storage of the symbols in the memory has begun. The apparatus also includes a controller that outputs control signaling in response to the indicator. The apparatus also includes a link that acquires the symbols and remote scheduling and control information (RSCI) from the memory in response to receiving the control signaling. The link combines the symbols with the RSCI to form packets and transmits the packets to an external system.

  • Patent number: 10296964
    Abstract: An effortless and automated reordering system includes a dedicated electronic device with a simple button interface that, upon depression of the button, initiates a process of ordering (or reordering) a product associated with the device and a button on that device. The electronic device may store in memory a device identifier and button identifiers for each button as the basis for order request information. The stored data may be communicated to a fulfillment service (e.g., an online merchant, fulfillment center, etc.) for order identification processing. In some cases, an application provided by the fulfillment service may be executed on a secondary management device to allow a user to configure the electronic device to map the buttons to different products, and even different vendors, to facilitate reconfigurable order management.
