  • Patent number: 10669042
    Abstract: An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that includes a light and a cooling system is described. The light fitted to the UAV may be bright since heat it generates will be cooled by thermal conduction, convection and/or heat absorption. The light may be cooled by the airflow generated by the propellers. The cooling system of the lighted UAV may include radiator that may conduct heat to the environment and/or include an internal liquid cooling system. The cooling system may include dedicated fans to cool the lights.

  • Patent number: 10125952
    Abstract: A system that illuminates water in a water display in broad daylight is described. The system may include a color filter that directs a desired color or range of colors onto the water. The source of light may be the sun or an artificial light source. Where the light source is the sun, a heliostat may be included to track the sun and reflect sunlight to the color filter. Other reflecting mirrors may be included to provide a line of sight between the light source and water display being illuminated.

  • Patent number: 9641694
    Abstract: A method for initiating a call in a communications system comprising a mobile communications device connected in a mobile communications network. The mobile communications device is allocated a mobile identifier for a first, mobile communications service provided by a mobile communications service provider and is allocated a second identifier for a second communications service provided by a second communications service provider that is different from the first, mobile communications service. The method comprises receiving over a data connection, at a switch, a request from the mobile communications device, comprising the second identifier, to initiate a call using the second communications service and adding, at the switch, the mobile identifier to the request and forwarding via a further network, the request comprising both the second identifier and the mobile identifier.

  • Publication number: 20170089561
    Abstract: Lighting modules having a first LED support having a first plurality of LEDs mounted thereon adjacent a center of the first LED support, a second LED support having an outer edge and an inner opening, the second LED support having a second plurality of LEDs mounted thereon adjacent the inner opening of the second LED support, the second LED support being connected to and spaced apart from the first LED support, the inner opening of the second LED support being larger than the region of the first LED support having the first plurality of LEDs, whereby light from the LEDs on the first LED support may pass through the inner opening of the second LED support. Additional larger LED supports with LEDs may be added, and the assembly of the LED supports sealed with the outer edges of the LED supports extending outward for immersion and cooling in water when incorporated in a larger sealed assembly.

  • Publication number: 20150354802
    Abstract: Underwater LED lights with enhanced cooling to allow the use of substantial numbers of high power LEDs. In all embodiments, the majority of the heat given off by the LEDs is transferred to the housing of the underwater light by heat transfer techniques other than by convection of the air or other gases within the enclosure, providing direct heat conveyance from the LEDs to or through the light enclosure walls, by conduction through a thermal conductor or by or as augmented by heat pipes to the inside wall of the enclosure or through the wall of the enclosure to the water. Various embodiments are disclosed.
