  • Publication number: 20220173802
    Abstract: A system includes antennas to receive satellite signals, modems for managing data received from the antennas, and a switching unit for managing the allocation and the transmission of the data from the various antennas to the various modems, the data from any one of the antennas being able to be allocated and transmitted to any one of the modems, the system thus being able to adapt the allocation of the data such that each modem is able to continue to receive data relating to signals transmitted by one and the same satellite upon a change of position of the antennas, thereby making it possible to maintain communication to one or more given satellite communication services.

  • Publication number: 20210305716
    Abstract: A Yagi-Uda monopolar antenna configured to be mounted on the conductive surface of a vehicle, especially an aircraft. The antenna comprises: a radiating element, taking the form of a conductive plate, for example one having the shape of a disc, which plate is equipped with a return conductor; a reflecting element; and at least one directing element taking the form of a monopole that is folded on itself. The various elements are mounted on a substantially planar surface such as the skin of the fuselage of an aircraft. The antenna simultaneously has a wide operating band, a good compactness and a good directivity. It may especially serve as joint antenna for a plurality of air-ground communication systems of an aircraft.

  • Patent number: 10043362
    Abstract: A security alarm system includes a security light that has a pair of sockets and a motion detector. The motion detector is electrically coupled to each of the sockets. The motion detector actuates each of the sockets when the motion detector detects motion. A first alarm is removably coupled to an associated one of the sockets such that the first alarm is in electrical communication with the associated socket. The first alarm emits an audible alarm when the motion detector detects motion. A second alarm is removably coupled to an associated one of the sockets such that the second alarm is in electrical communication with the associated socket. The second alarm records video footage when the motion detector detects motion.

  • Patent number: 9721226
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing information relating to the specialized handling of a package, and articles contained within the package. Data relating to a package containing an article that requires specialized handling is associated with a unique identifier and stored in a database. The unique identifier is also included in a machine readable code affixed to the package. A recipient of the package scans the machine readable code using an application downloaded into a mobile device, which extracts the unique identifier from the machine readable code and transmits a request to the database. The database may then identify data stored in the database that relates to the article based on the unique identifier, and transmit the data to the mobile device for display to the recipient. The data may include instructions on how to unpack the package, and how to store or use articles contained within the package.

  • Patent number: 9074477
    Abstract: A connector for connecting an impeller to a shaft is provided. The connector is formed as a unitary body. The connector has a sleeve portion which is frictionally connected on a radially outer surface of a shaft-side hub extension of the impeller. The connector further has a threaded portion carrying a thread which screws onto a corresponding threaded portion of the shaft, such that the connector provides a rotationally fixed connection between the impeller and the shaft. The hub extension has a central recess, and a part of the connector is inserted into the recess. The frictional connection between the sleeve portion and the radially outer surface of the hub extension transmits, in use, substantially all of the torque between the shaft and the impeller.
