  • Patent number: 7194726
    Abstract: A method for automatically decomposing a dynamic system model into separate submodels for ultimate execution on diverse target platforms is provided. Embodiments of the invention provide a way for a system designer to indicate which portions of a previously-specified system model are to become submodels. Optionally, the designer may also indicate the associated target platform for the execution of each submodel. A system submodel for each portion designated by the designer is generated, keeping all critical system-level information consistent throughout the entire system model. Each of these system submodels may then be employed to generate a software version of each system submodel. Each software submodel may then be transferred to its specified target platform and executed in cooperation with the other software submodels to effect an overall system simulation executing across the associated target platforms.

  • Patent number: 7103526
    Abstract: A method for exposing the internal signals of a system model or software model of a dynamic system to a client application outside the original modeling environment is provided. A designer of the system model is provided with a way to select internal signals of the system model in order to expose those internal signals to other computer applications external to the modeling environment. Such computer applications are then able to access the internal signals by way of interfacing software while the system model is being exercised within the modeling environment, or while a software model based on the system model is executed outside of that environment.

  • Patent number: 7100921
    Abstract: A toss game comprising in combination a multi-panel assembly including generally flat multiple substantially identically shaped panels each having first and second surfaces bearing printed design indicia thereon. Each of the side margins of the middle panel is hinge connected to one side margin of each of the two end panels whereby the end panels are pivotally extendable into a generally planar relation one to another and to the middle panel in an open flat configuration and foldable against the middle panel in a closed configuration. The end panels are also attachable along a distal edge of each of said end panels to form a self-supporting polyhedron shape which is preferably a truncated pyramid. A portion of the panel surfaces is partially covered with a hook and loop material to form target areas at which a throw piece of sufficient weight is thrown.

  • Patent number: 6971217
    Abstract: A method for controlling a wrapping machine for printed products that includes determining the size of an incoming gap in a printed product stream and controlling a speed of the wrapping machine as a function of the size of the incoming gap. The controlling step includes intentionally leaving, in the printed product stream in the wrapper machine, at least a single product gap corresponding to the incoming gap so as to create at least one empty bag. A newspaper finishing machine and controller are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20050018802
    Abstract: An improved method and apparatus for the detection of hydrogenated materials. Detection of concealed hydrogenated materials such as organic explosives, drugs, or biological tissue is accomplished by measuring the backscattering of neutrons from hydrogenous material in the targeted environment. The system comprises a neutron source that provides information as to the time at which the neutron is emitted, and a neutron sensor, which provides information as to the time at which the neutron is detected and may provide information as to the location at which the neutron is detected. The invention comprises a timing circuit that deactivates the neutron sensor during a time delay to reject signals from neutrons that have not scattered from hydrogen nuclei. The invention may further cease to detect neutrons after a window to reject signals from neutrons that have scattered off distant hydrogen nuclei, which may represent background noise.
