  • Patent number: 10664921
    Abstract: A system for validation of healthcare provider bills includes obtaining an image of the bill on a mobile device which uses optical character recognition to resolve the patient, provider and amount due as alphanumeric characters. This collection of data is cross-referenced against an explanation of benefits (EOB) generated by a third-party administrator which relays the portion of the healthcare provider bill covered by insurance versus what is the patient's responsibility. The EOB and provider bill are validated against each other so the patient can make payment in an accurate amount.

  • Patent number: 5867287
    Abstract: A low cost, compact projection display source that serves as a very bright image source for an automotive head up display. The present invention is comprised of a high intensity halogen light source and a liquid crystal display. The liquid crystal display is controlled by display electronics that write images onto the liquid crystal display that are to be displayed to the driver or passengers of a vehicle. Light output from the high intensity light source is transmitted through a piece of infrared energy absorbing glass, a decentered lens, such as a Fresnel lens, and a diffuser that uniformly backlights the liquid crystal display. Crossed polarizers are used on either side of the liquid crystal display. The high intensity light output transmitted by the liquid crystal display is passed through a yellow-orange output window which is projected onto a toric combiner for display to the driver of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 5453750
    Abstract: A multistage transmission line interconnect device (50) for joining two microstrip circuits (82, 86). A center conductor pin (52) extends through a cylindrical dielectric (54) to form a coaxial midsection of the device. The ends of the pin extend from the dielectric to form a conductor for a straight open troughline at each end of the device. The ends of the pin are connected to the microstrip circuits by ribbon bonds (80, 84). Because the midsection of the device is coaxial, the microstrip circuits (82, 86) may be oriented at arbitrary angles with respect to one another.

  • Patent number: 5408240
    Abstract: A suspended stripline corporate feed with an orthogonal transition to a coaxial transmission line at each of its input/output ports. Alternate I/O ports are pointed in opposite directions so that devices on both sides of the feed can be serviced by the same circuit. The cover for the feed is made out of injection molded, copper plated plastic. When utilized to distribute RF energy to T/R modules in an Active Array, the feed is machined as an integral part of the heat exchanger which cools the modules.
