Nathan Burns has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20220360322
    Abstract: A Data Delivery Service (DDS) is described, which is a service in a multi-tenant environment that transmits satellite data between a satellite antenna and a user instance. The DDS transports the antenna data to a different region, which allows a user to reuse their infrastructure for multiple antenna sites, thereby, reducing their infrastructure footprint and costs. Gateway instances can be launched at scheduled times in different regions and a secure communication channel can be established between the gateway instances to establish inter-region communication.

  • Patent number: 11363591
    Abstract: A matchmaking service can match a satellite owner/operator with antennas that are available and capable of servicing a communication request from the satellite owner/operator (e.g., to exchange data with the satellite owner/operator's satellite). The communication request may be received at a ground station service, and information included therein may be compared to capabilities of antennas registered with the ground station service to determine antennas that are compatible with the request. The ground station service may reserve a time slot for a selected compatible antenna to service the request and control the selected compatible antenna (e.g., to track and communicate with the satellite) during the time slot. In some embodiments, the matchmaking of satellite owners/operators to antennas uses models to determine communication parameters for a communication request and to determine capabilities of antennas registered with the ground station.

  • Publication number: 20140062512
    Abstract: A shock detector having an electrical detector having a set of water immersible electrodes for detecting hazardous water conditions through the determination of the presence of either an electrical current in a body of water, a voltage in the body of water or a voltage gradient in the body of water and then providing an alert to the existence of hazardous electrical conditions in the body of water which in some cases may transmitted to a power source to shut off a power source thereby removing the hazardous water condition.

  • Publication number: 20090274057
    Abstract: A bypass computer network has multiple egress gateways for communicating with one or more content servers in other computer network(s). The bypass network is configured to test the performance between each egress gateway and a content server, and to identify at least one preferred egress gateway for accessing the content server based on the testing. The preferred egress gateway may perform Network Address Translation to translate the source IP address of a client seeking data from the content server to a publicly addressable IP assigned to the preferred egress gateway.

  • Publication number: 20090276530
    Abstract: A method of accessing content from a server using a client device, the client device having at least first and second connections to one or more remote computers. The method includes testing the performance of the first connection, testing the performance of the second connection and selecting, in response to the performance testing, the first connection or the second connection for accessing content from the server using the client device.

  • Publication number: 20090271352
    Abstract: A computing device may have one or more physical connections and/or one or more virtual connections to computer network(s). A user of the computing device may desire access to data from a remote server. According to the present disclosure, the performance of accessing the remote server via the one or more physical connections and/or the performance of accessing the remote server via the one or more virtual connections are tested. Based on the test results, and possibly user-defined rules as well, one of the physical or virtual connections is selected for accessing content from the remote server using the computing device. Alternatively, one of the physical or virtual connections can be selected based solely on user-defined rules.

  • Publication number: 20090271523
    Abstract: A bypass computer network allows data communications between a client computing device and a remote content source to be selectively routed around a portion of the public Internet (or other computer network(s)) via the bypass network without requiring a physical connection between the bypass network and either the client computing device or the content source.
