  • Patent number: 11150658
    Abstract: Systems and methods for operating a HAUCS sensing platform. The methods comprise: autonomous travel by a UAAV to a first location in proximity to a body of water (“BoW”) in accordance with a mission plan; actuating a mechanical device to transition a sensor from a retracted position in which the sensor is adjacent to a UAAV to an extended position in which the sensor resides a given distance from a UAAV; collect, by HAUCS sensing platform and sensor, sensor data concerning a water condition of BoW at different depths; actuating the mechanical device to transition the sensor from the extended position to the retracted position after the sensor data has been collected; causing the sensor data to be processed using a machine learning-based analytical engine to determine whether a water distress condition exists/is predicted to occur; and modifying the mission plan when the water distress condition exists/is predicted to occur.

  • Patent number: 6819824
    Abstract: Optical switch packaging techniques and optical switch components are described. In one aspect, an optical switch component that includes a die mounted on an interposer is described. The die has an exposed array of mirrors that can be used as part of an optical switch. Typically, the interposer will also have a fiber array mount arranged to receive a fiber bundle and to position the fiber bundle appropriately over the array of mirrors. In some embodiments, an optical switch can be formed by putting together two mirror image interposer based optical switch components. When placing two interposer based optical switch components together, an alignment frame may be positioned between the interposers to help maintain a desired spacing between the respective arrays of mirrors. In some such embodiments, an inner housing is provided that encloses the dice, the fiber array mounts the alignment frame and portions of the interposers, but leaves connectors mounted on the interposers exposed.
