  • Publication number: 20200346460
    Abstract: A fluid container that includes body that provides a fluid reservoir. Additionally, the fluid container can also include an outlet structure. The outlet structure can include a conduit that extends from an outlet of the fluid container to the fluid reservoir. Moreover, the fluid container can include an outlet barrier and an interior barrier. The outlet barrier can be positioned within the conduit of the outlet structure in proximity to the outlet of the fluid container. Additionally, the outlet barrier can be structured to receive an inlet extension of a container device. The interior barrier can be positioned within the conduit of the outlet structure in proximity to the fluid reservoir. Additionally, the interior barrier can be displaceable relative to the outlet structure by the inlet extension.

  • Publication number: 20190285787
    Abstract: A polarizer including an oriented polymeric first layer is described. The oriented polymeric first layer is preparable from a mixture of polyvinyl alcohol and crosslinker where the crosslinker is included in the mixture at 5 to 40 percent by weight based on the total weight of the polyvinyl alcohol and crosslinker. The oriented polymeric first layer is a substantially uniaxially drawn layer, in that for U=(1/MDDR?1)/(TDDR1/2?1), U is at least 0.85, with MDDR being a machine direction draw ratio and TDDR being a transverse direction draw ratio.

  • Patent number: 4416630
    Abstract: A realistic audio-visual effects generator for simulating anti-tank and a-aircraft missile launching. A pyrotechnic cartridge having disc at one end that ruptures and allows the efflux of the products of combustion to exit through a hole in the breech block which is placed at the muzzle end of the firing chamber. Along with the simulated cartridge discharge is electrical circuitry for determining if the cartridge has been properly chambered.The circuitry acts to prohibit firing should it be determined that incorrect installation has occurred. Upon initiation of firing a conventional laser transmitter is actuated for simulating firing of the weapon.

  • Patent number: 3978342
    Abstract: Radiation transmitting apparatus which is smaller, lighter and less expensive than prior art systems, provides approximately 360.degree. azimuthal coverage and has the capability of operating in an infrared countermeasure mode when in a hostile area and as a collision avoidance beacon when in a non-hostile area. In particular, a rotatable reflector is positioned adjacent a fixed infrared source within a protective member capable of being mounted to an object to be protected, such as a helicopter. In the infrared countermeasure mode of operation, the reflector is rotated at a first angular velocity. An infrared filter is positioned relative to the infrared source and the rotating reflector whereby only infrared radiation is transmitted through the protective member.
