  • Patent number: 10404358
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a communicating device (e.g., either a ground station server or a particular distributed module of a satellite communication system) mitigates congestion on a particular return communication path via an intermediate satellite from the plurality of distributed modules to the ground station server. In particular, in response to determining that the level of congestion is above a threshold, then the communication device mitigates the congestion by, e.g.

  • Publication number: 20100044420
    Abstract: A carton for containing a plurality of articles. The carton has panels that extend at least partially around an interior of the carton. The panels comprise a top panel, a bottom panel, a first side panel, and a second side panel. At least two end flaps are respectively foldably attached to respective panels of the plurality of panels, wherein the end flaps are overlapped with respect to one another and thereby at least partially form a closed end of the carton. The carton includes a handle in the closed end of the carton for grasping and carrying the carton. The carton comprises a reinforcing insert attached to at least one of the panels for reinforcing the handle.

  • Publication number: 20090204453
    Abstract: A computer implemented method, apparatus, and computer program product for performing flight planning to reduce an effect of emissions. A method is present for performing flight planning. A set of emissions data is identified for an aircraft for a plurality of route segments in a route as a function of parameters for the aircraft including the route, a weight, an altitude, and engine data. A flight plan is generated for the aircraft based on a total of each type of emission in the set of emissions data from the plurality of route segments. A portion of the parameters for the aircraft is modified to reduce the effect of the emissions and meet a set of objects for the flight plan until the flight plan meets an objective.

  • Publication number: 20070251982
    Abstract: A carton is formed from a major blank that may be reinforced at selected locations to increase the strength of the carton. The carton includes gusseted corners that in part form an interior carton volume. The interior volume of the carton can be varied by placing the carton in an expanded configuration.

  • Publication number: 20070170281
    Abstract: A water dispensing system adapted for fully integrated installation within a vehicle for use in a wide variety of water dispensing applications and uses is disclosed. The system includes a water storage tank, a pump having an inlet in fluid communication with the water storage tank, a water hose having an inlet in fluid communication with the pump outlet, and a manually actuated flow control nozzle in fluid communication with the hose outlet. A vehicle fuel tank is partitioned so as to provide dual compartments capable of holding both fuel for the vehicle, and water for use with the system. The pump is preferably electrically connected to the vehicles electric power system. In an alternate embodiment, a compressed gas functions as the pumping source thereby eliminating the need for an electric pump.

The carton includes a handle in the closed end of the carton for grasping and carrying the carton. At least one end flap of the at least two end flaps comprises a main panel for closing the closed end of the carton and an extension panel foldably attached to the main panel. The extension panel is positioned above the handle to reinforce the carton.

  • Patent number: 6001117
    Abstract: A medical construct particularly useful as a stent, comprising an axially compressible bellows of a material and dimensions sufficient to provide negligible resistance to flexure transverse to the axis and negligible recoil under compression or expansion along the axis, and apparatus and a method for deploying the same.

  • Patent number: 5962007
    Abstract: There is described a process for deploying a medical construct in a body cavity, so as to function for example as a stent in a body lumen. The construct is used by forming a coil from a strand that has an interior and an exterior portion, and thereafter heating while expanding the coil so as to melt only the exterior portion. When that melted portion resolidifies with the coil in the expanded state, the coil's integrity and resistance against forces such as compression is maintained by the unmelted but stretched interior portion, and the expanded shape is maintained by the adhesiveness of the solidified exterior portion.

  • Patent number: 5810590
    Abstract: An implant has a proximal protrusion that is distinctly non-round even in a worn state, e.g. square in cross section, and may include radial slots for use in threading the implant into the jaw bone. No forces need be applied directly to the protrusion's external surfaces when inserting the slotted implant for subsequent osseointegration.

  • Patent number: 5752605
    Abstract: A tray and sleeve carton adapted to protect delicate packaged articles, such as computer chips. The tray includes spaced integral tubular supports which contain recesses for receiving the end portions of packaged articles. Each recess has a bottom support shelf spaced from the bottom panel and a back wall spaced from the side panels, thus creating false walls which support and isolate the article from the outer structure of the carton.

  • Patent number: 5580246
    Abstract: An implant having a damaged proximal protrusion that allows unacceptable crown rotation is repaired using a notching jig slipped over the implant protrusion. Guided by the jig, a burr forms radial slots in the outer proximal implant surface. A new crown is prepared using modifications of well-known casting techniques. The prosthetic crown precisely engages the newly-added slots on the implant to prevent rotation between the implant and the crown. Modified analog implants, copings, and abutments facilitate the method. An improved implant has a proximal protrusion that is generally square in cross section and includes radial slots for use in threading the implant into the jaw bone. No forces need be applied directly to the protrusion's external surfaces when inserting the implant for subsequent osseointegration.

  • Patent number: 4456134
    Abstract: A container comprised of a top member having an opening for filling and pouring in the conventional manner and a bottom member integrally connected together by a flexible compressible or collapsible mid-section. Means are also provided for externally connecting between the top and bottom member of the container, which external means operate to alter and maintain the internal volume of the container. Progressive adjustments in internal volume are possible.
