  • Patent number: 10359496
    Abstract: Determining alignment and clear line-of-sight (LOS) of a satellite antenna using sensor data from an LOS sensor of the satellite antenna. Described techniques include storing first sensor data captured by the LOS sensor at a first time, the first sensor data indicating a first LOS condition of the satellite antenna corresponding to the satellite antenna having a beam LOS with a satellite of the satellite communication system that is aligned and unobstructed. The techniques may include receiving second sensor data captured by the LOS sensor at a second time after the first time, the second sensor data indicating a second LOS condition of the satellite antenna. The techniques may include determining an LOS condition change for the satellite antenna between the first time and the second time based on a comparison of the second sensor data with the first sensor data.

  • Publication number: 20180206416
    Abstract: A controlled and closed agricultural system includes a growing space and an air handling system having a heat exchanger and cooling coil. The heat exchanger is capable of transferring sensible and latent heat and is in fluid connection with a recirculating air duct and an outside air duct. The recirculating air duct is in fluid connection with the growing space and one or more recirculation fans, while the outside air duct is in fluid connection with one or more outside air fans positioned to cause outside air to flow countercurrent to recirculating air through the heat exchanger. A cooling coil is positioned within the recirculating air duct, downstream of and in series with the heat exchanger. The cooling coil circulates a heat transfer fluid to remove additional heat from the recirculating air.
