  • Publication number: 20240085143
    Abstract: A crossbow having an energy storage system configured for storing energy when a bowstring is cocked at full-draw and releasing at least a portion of the stored energy when a trigger is pulled releasing the bowstring. The stored energy is defined by an area under a power-curve or draw-curve of the crossbow. The power-curve is defined by the force required to draw the bowstring from an un-cocked position to the cocked position. Between the un-cocked position and an intermediate position, the force required to draw the bowstring is substantially proportional to the draw distance. Between the intermediate position and the cocked position, the force required to draw the bowstring is substantially constant. When the cocked bowstring is released, at least a portion of the stored energy is transferred in the form of kinetic energy of an arrow or bolt nocked on the cocked bowstring.

  • Patent number: 11473937
    Abstract: The invention relates to a novel type of electric inductance arrangement for a series of applications in the field of distance measurement, sensor-based detection of objects, and construction of induction machines. The novelty consists in the type of inductance arrangement of the receiver or transmitter coil, said arrangement being designed in the form of a ladder rung arrangement, wherein the ladder spars short-circuit the rungs. The sum of all the short-circuit currents is an indicator of what is occurring in the surroundings of the arrangement. This could be changing magnetic fields caused by transmitter objects or additional ladder-rung systems acting as transmitters.

  • Patent number: 11221603
    Abstract: Systems and associated methods for highly parallel processing of parameterized simulations are described. Embodiments permit processing of stochastic data-intensive simulations in a highly parallel fashion in order to distribute the intensive workload. Embodiments utilize methods of seeding records in a database with a source of pseudo-random numbers, such as a compressed seed for a pseudo-random number generator, such that seeded records may be processed independently in a highly parallel fashion. Thus, embodiments provide systems and associated methods facilitating quicker data-intensive simulation by enabling highly parallel asynchronous simulations.
