  • Patent number: 11148379
    Abstract: A process is provided for manufacturing a tire assemblage that includes a first woven or knitted fabric including first threadlike elements, a second woven or knitted fabric including second threadlike elements, and a bearing structure including bearing elements connecting the first and second woven or knitted fabric together. The process includes coating each first threadlike element with a layer of a first adhesive composition and coating each second threadlike element with a layer of a second adhesive composition, heat treating each coated first threadlike element and each coated second threadlike element to crosslink the first adhesive composition and the second adhesive composition, and assembling the bearing elements with each heat-treated and coated first and second threadlike element to form part or all of the tire assemblage.

  • Publication number: 20080009295
    Abstract: A high-accuracy method for the geolocation, without the collaboration of the network, of outdoor mobile emitters of a CDMA cellular system, based on the ability to distinguishing between line-of-sight and reflected signals. The method employs time-of-flight and angle-of-arrival information in order to determine whether a signal received by each of two or more interceptors situated at different locations is line-of-sight or reflected. Time-of-flight information is obtained with the aid of the reverse link of a mobile of interest. At those instances in time when the signal received at two or more interceptors is line-of-sight, the location of the mobile can be accurately determined using conventional direction-finding techniques. Since the signal received by an interceptor from a mobile may be very weak, adaptive threshold digital signal processing techniques may be employed to control the probability of detection and the probability of false alarms.

  • Publication number: 20040085242
    Abstract: A system and a method of locating a co-operative transceiver in an indoor location by setting up multiple transmitting beacons outside of a building in which the transceiver is located. Information at the transceiver, such as time-of-arrival (TOA) or time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) of the first-to-arrive signals originating from the external beacons, is relayed back to a processing centre. The angle-of-transmission (AOT) is then determined for the first-to-arrive signals, the only ones with a potential for line-of-sight signals, as well as any arriving reflected signals. Synthetic Doppler, by revolving the transmitting antenna, is used to distinguish between a line-of-sight received signal in order to accurately determine the location of the transceiver.

  • Patent number: 4909627
    Abstract: An improved interferometric spectrum analyser system with direction finding capabilities for an emitting source, the type having a holographic element to provide a laser beam source for the system. The laser beam from the source is focused on a light waveguide within which are arranged in asymetrical configuration with respect to the direction of the laser beam source a plurality of antenna signal transducers and a plurality of reference signal transducer, the antenna signal transducers and the reference signal transducers respectively being arranged in adjacent rows in such a manner as to provide acoustic signals propagating in the same direction within the transducer. A lens assembly is positioned with respect to the light waveguide so as to provide a one-dimensional Fourier transform signal on the X-axis of the waveguide by causing the mixing of the Fourier transform signal of the antenna signal and the Fourier transform signal of the reference signal.
