  • Patent number: 11105890
    Abstract: A radar system operated in a variable power mode includes transmitters, receivers, and a controller. The transmitters transmit digitally modulated signals. The receivers receive radio signals that include transmitted radio signals from the transmitter and reflected from objects in the environment. In addition, an interfering radar signal from a different radar system is received that has been linearly frequency modulated. Each receiver includes a linear frequency modulation canceler that includes a FIR filter, and is configured as a 1-step linear predictor with least mean squares adaptation to attempt to cancel the interfering signal. The prediction is subtracted from the FIR input signal that drives the adaptation and also comprises the canceler output. The controller is configured to control the adaptation on a first receiver. The controller delays the adaptation such that transients at the start of each receive pulse are avoided.

  • Publication number: 20210264206
    Abstract: A detection and response system includes a central server having at least one continuously trained neural network and at least one remote system connected to the central server. The at least one remote system includes a first sensor configured to provide an analyzable output corresponding to sensed information to an instanced copy of the continuously trained neural network, and a response system configured to generate a response to the instanced copy of the continuously trained neural network providing a positive detection. A training module is stored on the central server and is configured to update one of the continuously trained neural network and the instanced copy of the continuously trained neural network in response to receiving a data set including the positive detection.

  • Patent number: 11084559
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to lighting systems employed in outboard motors used as marine propulsion systems, and to marine vessel assemblies employing outboard motors with such lighting systems, and related methods of operation and implementation. In one example embodiment of a lighting system, the lighting system includes a first cowling panel portion including a reflective strip portion, and a second cowling panel portion that, in combination with the first cowling panel portion, at least partly defines an interior region within the cowling. The lighting system also includes a lighting source that is positioned within the interior region and positioned so that, when operating, first light is emitted toward the reflective strip portion and, upon the first light reaching the reflective strip portion, at least some of the first light is directed outward away from the cowling.

  • Publication number: 20210192053
    Abstract: An approach is provided that retrieves organization information that pertains to a computer system operated by an organization and a set of current cyber security threat data that pertains to the organization. A security simulation is generated based on the current cyber security threat data and the organization data with the simulation including any number of decision-linked simulation segments. The simulation is then performed during which a user makes decisions based on the decision-linked simulation segments. The result of the simulation is an evaluated cyber security threat that corresponds to the organization's computer system.

  • Publication number: 20210149754
    Abstract: A method and system are provided for identification of constituent events in an event storm in operations management. The method includes: detecting an event storm by detecting an anomaly from a dynamic baseline range of expected event rates in a sample time period; and, when an event storm is detected, for each of a group of events grouped by an event category and occurring in a sample time period of an event storm, identifying the group of events as constituting part of the event storm if the rate of the event occurrences of the group in the sample time period is outside a threshold deviation from an average for that group.

  • Publication number: 20210137776
    Abstract: A generally “S” shaped massage roller and hook apparatus that is designed to be a handheld portable massage device to provide a user the ability to reach areas of the body that are typically hard to reach, as well as normal areas in need of massage. The massage roller and hook apparatus of the present invention provides multiple types of massage therapy and generally comprises a centrally located spindle having two ends, a massage roller centrally mounted on the spindle in a rotatable engagement, two ball bearing units that create said rotatable engagement, a small hook section connected on one end of the spindle, a large hook section connected on the apposite end of the spindle and containing a handle for leverage, two roller ball end knobs to provide a massage that simulates thumbs or fingers for a deep massage, and a fixed end knob located at the end of the handle for an even deeper tissue massage.

  • Publication number: 20210135782
    Abstract: A method to provide flexibility on the configuration and operation of the modulator, demodulator, and modem, where purpose-built (legacy) devices are not traditionally capable of exposing a level of control and flexibly for a user or an autonomous program for optimizing performance. Providing user or programmatic control of algorithms is traditionally not possible for purpose-built modems. Parameters such as the number of decoder iterations that are performed on Forward Error Correction (FEC), Interference Mitigation algorithm, or dynamic adjustment loop bandwidth to combat phase noise can be adjusted autonomously to optimize receiver performance. The all software modem, supported by a High-Performance Computing (HPC) architecture, removes the limitation due to the flexibility of programming resources and available performance.

  • Publication number: 20210029970
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a flexible, adjustable, collar. The collar includes a flexible member having a first end and a second end. A plurality of surface features, each having a raised portion on the upper surface the flexible member and a corresponding recessed portion on the lower surface of the flexible member, extend from the first end along the longitudinal axis of the flexible member. An attachment channel to accommodate the passage of the first end of the flexible member is disposed proximate the second end of the flexible member. An attachment feature having a physical geometry corresponding to the recessed portion of the surface feature is disposed on the bottom portion of the attachment channel. As the first end of the flexible member is passed through the attachment channel, the attachment feature engages the recessed portion of each of the surface features.

  • Patent number: 10821949
    Abstract: A braking system for a vehicle, which includes both a primary brake system, and a secondary brake system. A plurality of braking units are controlled by the primary brake system when the primary brake system is active, and at least one of the plurality of braking units controlled by the secondary brake system when the primary brake system is inactive. An actuator is part of the primary brake system, and the actuator is controlled by a primary controller. The primary controller selectively actuates the actuator to control the fluid pressure in the primary brake system to selectively actuate the plurality of braking units when the primary brake system is active, and when the primary brake system is inactive, the secondary brake system generates a boost pressure in the at least one of the plurality of braking units controlled by the secondary brake system.
