  • Patent number: 11002632
    Abstract: A system for measuring a polarization extinction ratio (PER) using a reference master test jumper (MTJ) is disclosed. The system may include an optical source to transmit an optical signal via an optical fiber. The system may also include a device under test (DUT) communicatively coupled to the optical source via the optical fiber to receive the optical signal from the optical source. The system may also include an optical measurement component communicatively coupled to the device under test (DUT). In some examples, the optical fiber may be configured or initialized to be a reference master test jumper (MTJ) that minimizes inherent polarization extinction ratio (PER) of the optical fiber when measuring a polarization extinction ratio (PER) during a measurement action.

  • Patent number: 10902714
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for an alert system for reducing a risk of an adverse health event in a firefighter or first responder. In one example, the alert system may comprise a wearable sensor and an alerting device, where the alerting device may be operable to receive physiological and/or environmental data from the wearable sensor and where the alerting device may be further operable to issue an alert based on the received physiological and/or environmental data. In some examples, the alert may be a function of one or more personalized thresholds for evaluating a stress level of the firefighter or first responder. In some examples, the alert may be issued via multiple communication channels.

  • Publication number: 20200129739
    Abstract: Some embodiments are directed to a catheter system comprising an introducer having a main body, an introducer sheath projecting from the main body, and a first seal supported within the introducer and a catheter having a main body, an outer sheath projecting from the main body, a second seal supported within the catheter, and an inner core configured to be advanced axially through the main body, the second seal, and the outer sheath. The introducer can be configured to be selectively engageable with the catheter so that the catheter can be selectively and removably linked with the introducer in the axial direction. The catheter system can also be configured such that, when the introducer and the catheter are linked, the catheter can be rotatable relative to the introducer. The introducer can be configured to radially restrain an endoluminal prosthesis.

  • Publication number: 20200125235
    Abstract: The construction of virtual-reality environments is more efficient with adjustable virtual user input devices that accommodate user physical limitations. Adjustable virtual user input devices can be adjusted along pre-established channels, which can be anchored to specific points in virtual space, including a user's position. Adjustable virtual user input devices can be bent in a vertical direction, bent along a horizontal plane, or other like bending, skewing, or warping adjustments. Elements, such as individual keys of a virtual keyboard, can be anchored to specific points on a host virtual user input device, such as the virtual keyboard itself, and can be bent, skewed, or warped in accordance with the adjustment being made to the host virtual user input device. The adjustability of virtual user input devices can be controlled through handles, which can be positioned to appear as if they are protruding from designated extremities of virtual user input devices.
