  • Publication number: 20210347648
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods from processing flue gas desulfurization (FGD) gypsum feedstock and ash feedstocks, either separately or together. FGD gypsum conversion comprises reacting FGD gypsum (e.g. calcium sulfate) feedstock, in either batch or continuous mode, with ammonium carbonate reagent to produce commercial products wherein the commercial products comprise ammonium sulfate and calcium carbonate. Ash conversion comprises a leach process followed by a precipitation process to selectively precipitate components at predetermined pHs resulting in metal hydroxides which may be optionally converted to oxides or carbonates. The processes may be controlled by use of one or more processors.

  • Publication number: 20210269321
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods from processing flue gas desulfurization (FGD) gypsum feedstock and ash feedstocks, either separately or together. FGD gypsum conversion comprises reacting FGD gypsum (calcium sulfate) feedstock or phosphogypsum, in either batch or continuous mode, with ammonium carbonate reagent to produce commercial products comprising ammonium sulfate and calcium carbonate. A process to separate the impurities and convert the calcium carbonate to a pure precipitated calcium carbonate is disclosed. These impurities include a concentrate of valuable Rare Earth Elements, and radioactive thorium and uranium. A process to convert calcium sulfite to calcium sulfate using oxygen and a catalyst is also disclosed. Ash conversion comprises a leach process followed by a sequential precipitation process to selectively precipitate products at predetermined pHs resulting in metal hydroxides which may be converted to oxides or carbonates.

  • Patent number: 10587987
    Abstract: A wireless device uses a tracking system to determine locations of target devices relative to the wireless device in an environment including one or more target devices. The tracking system receives a signal transmitted by a target device in the environment and performs an angle of arrival operation to determine the angle of arrival of the received signal. The tracking system applies a filter to determine an estimation value for the target device representing a system state for the target device. The tracking system assigns the received signal and corresponding angle of arrival to a track based on the estimation value. The tracking system identifies and removes outlier signals from the track to produce a filtered set of signals. The filtered set of signals is used to compute a point-of-origin vector for the target device for use in interacting and communicating with the target device.

  • Patent number: 10314382
    Abstract: A support system with attachments configured to connect to an equipment belt, such as a utility or gun belt, but worn under exterior clothing. In an exemplary embodiment, the support system is worn beneath the clothing, but connects to exterior equipment, without requiring modification of the clothing. A formed joining area between a semi-flexible downward extension and upper extension accommodates a tucked shirt while attaching to an exterior equipment belt at approximate waist level.

  • Patent number: 8068792
    Abstract: An inband signaling modem communicates digital data over a voice channel of a wireless telecommunications network. An input receives digital data. An encoder converts the digital data into audio tones that synthesize frequency characteristics of human speech. The digital data is also encoded to prevent voice encoding circuitry in the telecommunications network from corrupting the synthesized audio tones representing the digital data. An output then outputs the synthesized audio tones to a voice channel of a digital wireless telecommunications network.

  • Patent number: 7283567
    Abstract: Network delay is determined in order to synchronize a clock in a mobile station with a reference clock. Tones are generated that represent a sequence of bits in a synchronization flag. The tones are sampled beginning at a selected sample start time. The sampled tones are demodulated to identify the bit values in the synchronization flag. The demodulator is synchronized with the sampled tones in the synchronization flag by shifting the sample start time until the samples generate an optimum synchronization value. A reference time is then identified according to the optimum sample start time.

  • Patent number: 6681121
    Abstract: A wireless telecommunication device, such as a cell phone, is coupled to a source of digital data which may comprise a GPS receiver. In one embodiment, a GPS receiver and inband signaling modem are integrated into the cell phone battery pack. A pushbutton on the battery pack is actuated by a user to trigger selected events such as formulating location data in the GPS receiver, encoding the location data in the IBS modem and inserting the resulting audio frequency tones into the voice channel of the cell phone for transmission over the voice channel of a digital, wireless telecommunications network.
