  • Publication number: 20020039907
    Abstract: The communiqué system for combined cellular and wireline communication networks operates with existing cellular and wireline communication networks to provide communiqué communication services to subscribers. The Communiqué can be unidirectional (broadcast) or bidirectional (interactive) in nature and the extent of the Communiqué can be network-wide broadcast or narrowcast, where cells and/or cell sectors are grouped to cover a predetermined geographic area or demographic population or subscriber interest group to transmit information to subscribers who populate the target audience for the narrowcast transmissions. The grouping of cells to form the communiqué coverage area for the narrowcast transmissions can be hierarchical in nature and/or be composed of combinations of in-building wireless coverage areas, standard terrestrial cells, non-terrestrial cells, wireline-based cells, orchestrated in a hierarchical manner.

  • Publication number: 20020037716
    Abstract: The communiqué system for private virtual narrowcasts operates with existing cellular communication networks to provide private virtual narrowcast communication services, that are initiated by a narrowcast host, to subscribers. The Communiqué can be unidirectional (broadcast) or bi-directional (interactive) in nature and the extent of the Communiqué is narrowcast, where cells and/or cell sectors are grouped to cover a predetermined geographic area or demographic population or subscriber interest group to transmit information to a private group of subscribers who populate the target audience for the narrowcast transmissions. The grouping of cells to form the communiqué coverage area for the narrowcast transmissions need not be contiguous and can comprise dynamic combinations of contiguous and non-contiguous cells as well as combinations of in-building wireless coverage areas, standard terrestrial cells, non-terrestrial cells, orchestrated in a hierarchical manner.

  • Publication number: 20020018450
    Abstract: The communique system for cellular communication networks operates with existing cellular communication networks to provide communique communication services to subscribers. The communique can be unidirectional (broadcast) or bidirectional (interactive) in nature and the extent of the communique can be network-wide broadcast or narrowcast, where one or more cells and/or cell sectors are grouped to cover a predetermined geographic area or demographic population or subscriber interest group to transmit information to subscribers who populate the target audience for the narrowcast transmissions. The communique system for cellular communication networks can dynamically allocate the available bandwidth to thereby serve subscribers with more control channel(s) and/or control channel bandwidth and/or communication channels and/or communication channels of greater bandwidth as the need presents itself.

  • Patent number: 5191613
    Abstract: The document authentication apparatus provides document authentication and authenticity capability. Document authentication requires that the person to be charged apply an authenticating mark on the document indicating intent to authenticate the document. This requirement is analogous to a signature on a printed document and is implemented in the document authentication apparatus electronically through the use of both hardware and software. A program which immediately checks the identicalness of the document at the transmitting and receiving station through a high speed comparison, locks in the document such that no modification can occur and then awaits authentication handshakes from the two end points. Such authentication is real-time and can be both hardware and software executable, i.e., password and physical confirmation.

  • Patent number: 4490851
    Abstract: This invention relates to surveillance and counter-surveillance classificon of military vehicles using one-dimensional analysis of the target images. A two-dimensional image is digitized into a n by n pixel matrix which is summed along each row and column to produce a pair of n-component vectors which are invariant under image translation or rotation. A one-dimensional Fourier transform can be obtained from either or both of these two vectors. The image vectors are useful in the identification of U.S. and threat vehicle targets, or in the detection of target image motion.
