  • Publication number: 20190329900
    Abstract: A hybrid ram air turbine assembly includes a turbine portion having a plurality of turbine blades connected to a turbine shaft via a hub. A pivot joint is connected to the turbine portion by a hydraulic pump and an electric generator. The hydraulic pump and the electric generator are in-line with each other, and the turbine shaft is connected to a generator input shaft via a first gear set.

  • Patent number: 10322815
    Abstract: A system for providing alternating current (AC) power to an aircraft component includes a ram air turbine (RAT) configured to generate AC power. The system also includes an energy storage device configured to output direct current (DC) power. The system also includes an inverter configured to convert the DC power to the AC power. The system also includes a controller coupled to the RAT and the inverter and configured to cause the inverter to provide the AC power to the aircraft component, and to control the RAT to provide the AC power to the aircraft component in response to determining that the RAT can provide the AC power.

  • Patent number: 6343207
    Abstract: A system and method for providing a field configurable radio frequency communication system including an intermediate frequency digital signal processing circuit therefor. The intermediate frequency digital signal processing circuits includes digital transmitter and receiver circuit paths, a digital baseband circuit, control registers and an interface circuit. The transmitter and receiver circuit paths and the baseband circuits include digital processing circuits that are configurable by commands provided to the control register via the interface circuit to select the transmitter or receiver mode of operation, to select the signaling scheme of waveform employed, to configure the signal processing functions of the transmitter or receiver circuit paths, and to select the use of any of a plurality a baseband signal processing functions.

  • Patent number: 6292654
    Abstract: A digital noise reduction for a radio frequency receiver communication systems that is field programmable to function with a large variety of signaling schemes or waveforms. The noise reduction arrangement includes circuits to convert the mulit bit digital signal (including noise impulses therein) into logarithmic form and uses exponential averaging to determine the presence of noise and the magnitude thereof. Various threshold circuits, the exponential averaging circuits and an exponential decay circuit are responsive to digital commands to set the thresholds for noise detection and control when the noise should be blanked and the duration of blanking.
