  • Patent number: 9438361
    Abstract: In a method for providing a content service to a recipient (20) in communications, a service center (14) receives information on a recipient identification and on service terminals (16) assigned, in a sender device (38), for the content. The service center (14) uploads the content to the assigned service terminals (16). The service terminal (16) receives information on a location of a transmitter device (34) of the recipient (20). The service terminal (16) compares the received location information with location information on the service terminal (16). Based on the comparing, if the service terminal is in a close proximity of the transmitter device (34) of the recipient (20) the service terminal (16) activates a first display content for inviting the service terminal (16) to display the uploaded content on a monitor of the service terminal (16). When the recipient acknowledges the first display content, the service terminal may take actions related to a second display content.

  • Patent number: 8818581
    Abstract: A method is described that includes performing a), b) and c) below with an electronic control unit of a parafoil: a) after being dropped from an airborne vehicle, wirelessly receiving the parafoil's desired landing location; b) determining a flight path for the parafoil that lands at the desired landing location; and, c) controlling the parafoil's flight path consistently with the determined flight path.

  • Patent number: 8800930
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide a system and method for persistent high-accuracy payload delivery utilizing a two-phase procedure during the terminal descent phase of aerial payload delivery. In the first phase a small parafoil provides aerial delivery of a payload to within a close proximity of an intended touchdown point, e.g., a target. In the second phase a target designator acquires the target and a trajectory to the target is determined. A harpoon launcher deploys a harpoon connected to the payload by an attachment line, such as a rope. A reel mechanism reels up the attachment line causing the payload to be moved to the target thus providing high accuracy touchdown payload delivery.

  • Patent number: 8437891
    Abstract: A method is described that involves determining a higher altitude wind. The method further includes determining a wind model with the higher altitude wind. The wind model includes a linear or logarithmic increase in wind magnitude with increasing altitude beneath the higher altitude. The method further includes determining locations of a flight path for a parafoil based on calculations that use the wind model. The calculations are performed by an electronic control unit that is transported by the parafoil. The method also includes controlling the parafoil's flight path consistently with the determined locations. The controlling is performed by the control unit.

  • Publication number: 20120067600
    Abstract: A large size fire blanket folded in one pack is provided and delivered to the area of wild fire over the air by manned or unmanned aircrafts. Being deployed over the air to the wild fire area, the fire blanket attached to aircrafts is unfolding above the fire by stretching it out with aircrafts slowly moving apart until fire blanket is fully unfolded. After that the aircrafts starts simultaneous landing and covering with fire blanket the affected area. In result the fire blanket cuts off oxygen flow to the fire area and extinguish fire therefore. To prevent “hot air balloon” effect, the fire blanket has multiple perforations equally spread along the surface.
