  • Patent number: 5444693
    Abstract: Difficulties with prior disrupted communications restoration systems are overcome by employing for each node of a communications network a restoration processor in which predetermined functions of the restoration process are managed by respective ones of a plurality of manager modules. The manager modules are arranged to be directly interconnected only with a so-called restoration manager that coordinates the operations of the modules and provides for their interconnection needs. In a preferred embodiment, four manager modules, a) a user interface manager module, b) a digital cross-connect system (DCS) manager module, c) a distributed communications manager module and d) a core algorithm manager module, are interconnected and coordinated by the restoration manager. Additional robustness to the restoration process is provided by way of enhancements to the functionality of the core algorithm manager module.

  • Patent number: 5133145
    Abstract: A lighted, submerable fish attracting device is provided for attracting fish from greater distances and for rapidly concentrating them around the bait. The device uses encapsulated live bait under a combined lighting arrangement from a light source. The combined direct spotlighting of the baitfish, and brilliant reflected floodlighting of a broad area, provides brilliant visibility and attraction from afar, concurrently with centralized attraction and focusing around the baitfish. The device provides underwater dynamic vertical plumb stabilization for improved dynamic handling and for elimination of tumbling during rapid submersion under water.
