  • Patent number: 10426694
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include a method and a device for increasing blood flow and controlling the temperature of a mammal by applying a desired pressure to extremities of a mammal. The device generally includes a pliant body element that is adapted to receive a portion of an extremity of the mammal therein, and then apply a pressure to a portion of the extremity when a pressure is provided to a region in which the extremity is positioned within the pliant body element. By evacuating the region in which the extremity is enclosed, a contact surface area between the extremity of a mammal and the pliant body element is increased, due to the external atmospheric pressure acting on the pliant body element against the skin of the extremity of the mammal. The application of pressure assures that sufficient contact and thermal heat transfer (heating or cooling) is provided to the extremity of the mammal.

  • Publication number: 20190295452
    Abstract: A method for preventing image retention in an electronic display, and an electronic display configured to perform such a method. A time period and a pixel threshold may be defined. A checksum calculation of all pixel data within an active image area of the electronic display is preferably performed during the predetermined period of time. A checksum calculation is then performed to determine if the change in pixel data during the period of time is less than the pixel threshold. If not, an image retention prevention procedure is conducted for each area of the active image area of the display where the threshold value was not met. Generally, the image retention prevention procedure includes transmitting alternate pixel data to at least a portion of the pixels within the subject area.

  • Patent number: 10417915
    Abstract: A system for dynamic flight tracking of an aircraft comprises a ground center configured to communicate with a flight tracking application onboard an aircraft, wherein the flight tracking application is preloaded with default flight tracking preferences comprising a normal time rate interval for sending normal condition position reports to the ground center when a flight condition is normal; abnormal time rate intervals for sending abnormal condition position reports to the ground center when abnormal flight conditions are detected, with the abnormal time rate intervals less than the normal time rate interval; and abnormal flight condition criteria to determine which aircraft conditions to monitor for detecting abnormal flight conditions.

  • Patent number: 10319271
    Abstract: A system and method for preventing image retention in an electronic display. A time threshold (TT) and a pixel threshold (PT) may be defined. The system preferably performs a checksum calculation of all pixel data within an active image area of the electronic display for an interval of time until reaching TT. The system may then compare the checksum calculation for each interval of time to determine if the change in pixel data is less than PT. Preferably, the system will perform an image retention prevention method for the active image area if the change in pixel data is less than PT. Generally, this is performed by transmitting alternate pixel data to the electronic display.

  • Patent number: 10102755
    Abstract: Methods, systems and devices for real position reports between an aircraft and a terrestrial network using SwiftBroadband and a set of calculation instructions which identifies the specific aircraft and calculates multiple variables including, but not limited to, Speed, Heading, Departure Airport, and Arrival Airport. Once all variables have been calculated the system tracks the aircraft status on a map for multiple platforms. The position tracking system generates position reports that can be integrated into combined mapping system of other source data to give the most accurate position data possible.

  • Patent number: 9647765
    Abstract: A burst-mode phase shift keying (PSK) communications apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention enables practical, power-efficient, multi-rate communications between an optical transmitter and receiver. Embodiments may operate on differential PSK (DPSK) signals. An embodiment of the apparatus includes an average power limited optical transmitter that transmits at a selectable data rate with data transmitted in bursts, the data rate being a function of a burst-on duty cycle. DPSK symbols are transmitted in bursts, and the data rate may be varied by changing the ratio of the burst-on time to the burst-off time. This approach offers a number of advantages over conventional DPSK implementations, including near-optimum photon efficiency over a wide range of data rates, simplified multi-rate transceiver implementation, and relaxed transmit laser line-width requirements at low data rates.
