  • Publication number: 20200245153
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a spectrum sharing system that is configured to identify bandwidth allocation criteria for spectrum sharing at a base station node, which has a first cell configured for communications via a first spectrum and a second cell configured for communications via a second spectrum. The spectrum sharing system may further determine a select number of subframes on the second cell for configuration as Multicast Broadcast Single Frequency Network (MBSFN) subframes, based on the bandwidth allocation critical, and in doing so, generate spectrum sharing data for delivery to the base station node to dynamically configure the select number of subframes to support communications via the first spectrum.

  • Patent number: 10725280
    Abstract: A multiscale telescopic imaging system is disclosed. The system includes an objective lens, having a wide field of view, which forms an intermediate image of a scene at a substantially spherical image surface. A plurality of microcameras in a microcamera array relay image portions of the intermediate image onto their respective focal-plane arrays, while simultaneously correcting at least one localized aberration in their respective image portions. The microcameras in the microcamera array are arranged such that the fields of view of adjacent microcameras overlap enabling field points of the intermediate image to be relayed by multiple microcameras. The microcamera array and objective lens are arranged such that light from the scene can reach the objective lens while mitigating deleterious effects such as obscuration and vignetting.

  • Publication number: 20200228562
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide techniques, systems, and methods for remote, agent-less enterprise computer threat data collection, malicious threat analysis, and identification and reporting of potential and real threats present on an enterprise computer system. Specifically, embodiments are directed to a system that securely identifies and maps sensitive information from computers across the enterprise. Secure and sensitive information may be internally encrypted and analyzed for indicators of compromise, threatening behavior, and known vulnerabilities. The remote, agent-less collection, analysis, and identification process can be repeated periodically to detect and map additional sensitive information over time, and may delete itself after completion to avoid detection.

  • Publication number: 20200221413
    Abstract: Certain cellular communication systems may use beamforming to create distinct signal beams in different radial directions relative to a base station. Upon receiving a request for the location of a mobile device, a position calculation function is used to calculate the location of the mobile device based on multiple types of location-related data. The location-related data may indicate the direction of the directional signal beam that is currently being used for communications between the mobile device and a base station. The direction may be used in conjunction with other location-related data, such as distance information, to estimate the location of the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20200213939
    Abstract: Systems and methods for improving network resource allocation are disclosed. The system can determine which user's equipment (UEs) can be reallocated from a first network (e.g., one of the 4G network or the 5G network) to a second network (e.g., the other of the 4G network or the 5G network) to reduce load on the first network. The system can determine which UEs are capable of using each type of network and which services or applications that are suitable for use on each type of network. Due to differences in propagation and penetration distances of various frequency spectrums, the system can also determine which UEs have sufficient signal strength for each type of network. The system can reside on the network, on the UEs, or on both the network and the UE. The system can switch back and forth between multiple networks as conditions, applications, or other factors change.

  • Patent number: 10695491
    Abstract: A computerized electro-mechanical drug delivery device configured to deliver at least one dose of two or more medicaments. The device comprises a control unit. An electro-mechanical drive unit is operably coupled to the control unit and a primary reservoir for a first medicament and a secondary reservoir for a fluid agent, e.g. a second medicament. An operator interface is in communication with the control unit. A single dispense assembly is configured for fluid communication with the primary and the secondary reservoir. Activation of the operator panel sets a first dose from the primary reservoir and based on the first dose and a therapeutic dose profile, the control unit is configured to determine a dose or range of the fluid agent. Alternatively, the control unit determines or calculates a dose or range of a third medicament. Further, a dispense interface for use with a drug delivery device is disclosed.
