  • Patent number: 7585095
    Abstract: The technology described herein provides an illuminated motorcycle safety and vanity light bar for conveying an illuminated identification or vanity message. The safety and vanity light bar for a motorcycle includes a light bar having an outwardly facing message surface area for illumination from an internal light source and a plurality of transparent optical apertures disposed upon the outwardly facing message surface area of the light bar. A message is displayed upon the message surface area and illuminated with illumination from the internal light source through the plurality of transparent optical apertures.

  • Patent number: 4259733
    Abstract: Seismic traces synthesizing the response of subsurface formations to a cylindrical or plane wave are obtained for a succession of shotpoint locations along a seismic line of profile. The traces obtained are then wavefront steered and the steered traces and original trace for each shotpoint are summed. Groups of these traces for a line of profile are assembled to form a steered section. A number of these sections are then individually imaged or migrated, and the migrated sections are summed to form a migrated two-dimensional stack of data from cylindrical or plane wave exploration. Reflectors may then be located by finding common tangents.The traces for those shotpoints of the several lines which lie in planes perpendicular to the lines are then assembled and processed in the foregoing manner to obtain three dimension migrated seismic data.

  • Patent number: 4072922
    Abstract: Seismic sources or source arrays and seismic detectors or detector groups are arranged and spaced with respect to each other during the seismic survey to enhance simulation of plane waves or cylindrical waves, and also to reduce undesirable effects of horizontally travelling seismic noise.
