  • Patent number: 10838100
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure may reduce motion noise by mounting vector component sensors on a bottom-weighted instrument platform that is supported with a spherical bearing. An apparatus for data acquisition is provided. The apparatus includes a base assembly, a spherical bearing mounted to the base assembly, and an instrument platform having at least one vector component sensor fixed thereto. The instrument platform is mounted on and supported by the spherical bearing. The spherical bearing couples the instrument platform to the base assembly and allows free angular rotation of the instrument platform, within a tilt angle range. The instrument platform is bottom weighted in that it has a center of mass disposed below its center of rotation. The apparatus may include a controller that receives and/or stores data from the at least one sensor.

  • Patent number: 10432542
    Abstract: A mobile telecommunications network includes a core, a radio access network, and a platform control unit. The platform control unit is capable of identifying a network path of a communication that originated from a mobile terminal. Based on certain characteristics of the communication, the platform control unit will determine whether the communication should be offloaded from its network route. If the communication is to be offloaded, then the platform control unit causes the communication to bypass the network's core.

  • Patent number: 9318296
    Abstract: A cathode of a magnetron having a radial extension to accommodate the cathode terminals is supported by arms which have a greater diameter over the region in which they are supported in the glass thimble than over the region of the free ends. This shifts any vibrations to a higher frequency band, which is less liable to be excited in the event the magnetron is moved rapidly as in a linac used for radiotherapy purposes.

  • Publication number: 20120201097
    Abstract: A Transmit/Receive Array combination with high resolving power wherein the Signal Dependent Noise contributors to Image Quality, as determined by the Peak Sidelobe Ratio (PSLR) and the Integrated Sidelobe Ratio (ISLR) are controlled largely independently of the Main Lobe Width. The receiving array is comprised of a number of discrete elements, nominally at half wavelength spacing. The Receive Array is weighted to aid in the control of PSLR and ISLR. The Transmit Array is comprised of a sparse array of discrete elements (more than two). The Transmit Array is longer than the receive array. The transmit array may be weighted to aid in the control of PSLR and ISLR.

  • Publication number: 20110246189
    Abstract: An audio quality feedback system and method is provided. The system receives audio from a client via a communication device such as a microphone, The audio quality feedback system compares the received audio to one or more parameters regarding the quality of the feedback. The parameters include, for example, clipping, periods of silence, signal to noise ratios. Based on the comparison, feedback is generated to allow adjustment of the communication device or use of the communication device to improve the quality of the audio.
