  • Publication number: 20220256343
    Abstract: A system comprises an interface and a processor. The interface is configured to provide a request to join a publish group from a client or a point to point communication link of a lattice mesh; and receive a group key or a host public key. The processor is configured to determine whether a message has been received; in response to the message having been received, determine whether the message is to be sent on; in response to the message being determined not to be sent on, decode the message using the group key or the host public key; determine whether to store the message in a backfill database; in response to determining to store the mssage in the backfill database, store the message in the backfill database.

  • Publication number: 20220059950
    Abstract: An antenna system has a two-dimensional field of view, yet can be implemented on a surface, such as on electronic or photonic integrated circuits. The antenna system includes an array of antennas disposed in a predetermined non-linear pattern and a two-dimensional beamforming network (BFN). The antenna system can be steered/selectively beamformed in two dimensions through beam port selection. The beamforming network is disposed entirely on a single first surface. The beamforming network has a one-dimensional array-side interface disposed on the first surface and a one-dimensional beam-side interface disposed on the first surface. The antennas of the array of antennas are individually communicably coupled to the array-side interface. Segments of the beam-side interface map to respective pixels in the two-dimensional field of view.

  • Patent number: 10837755
    Abstract: A multi-beam optical phased array on a single planar waveguide layer or a small number of planar waveguide layers enables building an optical sensor that performs much like a significantly larger telescope. Imaging systems use planar waveguides created using micro-lithographic techniques. These imagers are variants of “phased arrays,” common and familiar from microwave radar applications. However, there are significant differences when these same concepts are applied to visible and infrared light.

  • Patent number: 10264991
    Abstract: A device used to establish a contact between a subject and a measuring device using measurement technology, wherein the subject can be a patient. The device has at least one measuring device for connecting to the subject and at least one line to which the measuring device is secured. The line is designed such that the measured variables detected by the measuring device can be conducted to a measuring unit. A mat is connected to the at least one line so as to at least partly form an internal line section.

  • Patent number: 9924129
    Abstract: A method and system for supplying a digital video signal from a source to a sink are described. The digital video signal includes digital video data for three different colors and a pixel clock signal, such as DVI and HDMI. The digital video data and the pixel clock signal are received at a transmitter which sends a signal representative of the frequency of the pixel clock signal over a cable connecting the transmitter and a receiver. Digital video data for three different colors is sent over three different twisted wire pairs of the cable to the receiver. A local pixel clock signal is generated at the receiver using the signal representative of the frequency of the pixel clock signal. The local pixel clock signal is used to process the received digital video data and recovered digital video data and the local pixel clock signal are output.

  • Patent number: 7739141
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program product for providing a consulting assessment environment. Consultants may use the environment to define templates that encode questionnaires and domain knowledge regarding business practices, as well as reporting criteria to specify the content and format of the assessment results. Consultants or their clients may use the environment to automate the process of performing assessments and generating reports from those assessments. These assessments may analyze the current state of the business, compare the business's current state with desired states or with best practices, and perform risk/benefit and/or cost/benefit analyses, according to the specifications made in the templates on a real-time basis for producing immediate assessment results and actions. An information hiding feature is provided to allow sensitive domain knowledge encoded within the templates, such as trade secrets, to be made inaccessible to clients.

  • Patent number: 7603317
    Abstract: The invention entails identifying the parties involved in a process of handling personally identifiable information; identifying the data involved in said process; classifying the data; expressing each relationship between each pair of said parties in terms of a privacy agreement; and representing the parties, data, and privacy agreements graphically in one or more privacy agreement relationship diagrams. The invention has the advantage of identifying opportunities to reduce privacy-related risks, including identifying unnecessary exchanges of data, for possible elimination, and identifying opportunities to transform data into a less sensitive form. Privacy agreements are based on a limited set of privacy-related actions: access, disclose, release, notify, utilize, update, withdrawConsent, giveConsent, delete, anonymize, depersonalize, and repersonalize. One aspect of the present invention is a method for improving the handling of personally identifiable information.
