  • Patent number: 9097902
    Abstract: An auto stereoscopic frame system and the associated method of manufacturing is disclosed. The frame system generally comprises a frame defining an opening for housing a lens structure, said frame being operative for removable attachment to a display device which projects at least one image such that when the image is viewed through the lenticular sheet it is viewed in three dimensions. The frame is attached to the display device via a mounting mechanism. The lenticular sheet may be manufactured by providing a substantially transparent substrate material; forming a plurality of lenses on a first side of the substrate; and shaping the substrate to correspond to a display area of a display device, wherein the plurality of lenses are angled to correspond to the pixel size and pitch of the display area of a display device.

  • Patent number: 7937752
    Abstract: A system and method for sharing files securely includes server software on a first device configured to communicate with server software operating on one or more other preauthorized devices, such as a second device. The servers communicate with each other securely using cryptographic information exchanged during a preauthorization phase using a range-limited communication channel. The server on the first device obtains file information from the other preauthorized device(s) and combines the information with local file information from the first device. This combined file information is sent to client software operating on the machine, which presents the combined file information to users.

  • Patent number: 7568430
    Abstract: A shock-triggered warhead fragment transmitter is described. The transmitter is designed to radiate a pulse upon either detonation of the warhead or impact of the fragment with the target. The pulse energy is obtained by shock de-poling of a ferroelectric material and is radiated using a dipole antenna. Detection of the radiated pulses may be used to confirm detonation of the warhead and determine the time and location of the detonation and facilitate battle damage assessment.

  • Publication number: 20070019806
    Abstract: A method for establishing a secondary communication channel between at least two computing devices over a network medium through use of a primary channel connects a first computing device with a first telephonic unit and a second computing device with a second telephonic unit. If the two telephonic units are in communication with each other over a primary channel, and communication channels are established between the computing devices and their respective telephonic units, then the first computing device transmits its location information to the second computing device over the primary channel. A connection is then established between the second computing device and the first computing device over a secondary communication channel.

  • Publication number: 20050100166
    Abstract: A location-limited channel is implemented using physical exchanges of physical tokens. The physical tokens are implemented using writeable or re-writeable storage media. Location-limited channels, when used to implement pre-authentication protocols, provide demonstrative identification and authenticity. A group originator loads pre-authentication information and a network location from a communication device onto the location-limited physical token channel. The location-limited physical token channel is passed to another participant, who copies the originator's pre-authentication information and location onto that participant's communication device. That participant then adds that participant's own pre-authentication information and network location onto the location-limited physical token channel. This is repeated until the last participant passes the location-limited physical token channel back to the group originator.

  • Patent number: 6385882
    Abstract: A two-dimensional display having a three-dimensional visual appearance has printed on a substantially flat or planar surface a predetermined message or information. Superposed over the message is a lenticular lens. Adjacent to the message are a series of spaced apart lines which may either be coplanar or non-coplanar relative to the message. The spaced apart lines are arranged so that they are in a non-registration relationship with the spacing of individual lenticules forming the lenticular lens. The display produces an appearance of having the lines float or move as a viewer's focal angle or perspective of the display changes. A method for making such a display is also provided.

  • Patent number: 5386758
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for disarming a pipe bomb wherein one of the end caps of the pipe bomb is knocked off with a sudden blow, such that the pipe bomb will be spun around somewhat in circles and the powder and/or contents employed in the bomb will be thrown out without detonation. The apparatus employs an explosively driven piston, acting like a hammer, with the explosive driving the piston, being detonated using a time delay fuse.
