  • Publication number: 20210037223
    Abstract: Disclosed are improved methods, systems and devices for color night vision that reduce the number of intensifiers and/or decrease noise. In some embodiments, color night vision is provided in system in which multiple spectral bands are maintained, filtered separately, and then recombined in a unique three-lens-filtering setup. An illustrative four-camera night vision system is unique in that its first three cameras separately filter different bands using a subtractive Cyan, Magenta and Yellow (CMY) color filtering-process, while its fourth camera is used to sense either additional IR illuminators or a luminance channel to increase brightness. In some embodiments, the color night vision is implemented to distinguish details of an image in low light. The unique application of the three-lens subtractive CMY filtering allows for better photon scavenging and preservation of important color information.

  • Patent number: 8086909
    Abstract: A support center receives an error message from a remote storage system indicating that an error, such as a kernel panic, has occurred on the remote storage system. The error message is processed to determine the type of error, whether the type of error is known and whether a solution is known for the type of error. If the type of error is unknown, a core file upload request is automatically generated and sent to the remote storage system.

  • Patent number: 7913115
    Abstract: A core file that may be generated when a data storage system encounters a problem can be automatically and securely sent to a remote (e.g., offsite) support enterprise. Moreover, given the size of such files and the additional requirements associated with sending such files securely, the transmission of the core file may be monitored such that, if a problem occurs during the transmission, the pieces of the file that have been successfully transmitted are not resent, but merely those pieces that still need to be (successfully) transmitted. In this manner, the time and resources required to securely transmit such large files are more efficiently utilized.
