  • Publication number: 20220148087
    Abstract: The disclosed systems and methods relate to allowing trading of over the counter (“OTC”) foreign exchange (“FX”) contracts on a centralized matching and clearing mechanism, such as that of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange's (“CME”' s) futures exchange system (the “Exchange”). The disclosed systems and methods allow for anonymous transactions, centralized clearing, efficient settlement and the provision of risk management/credit screening mechanisms to lower risk, reduce transaction costs and improve the liquidity in the FX market place. In particular, the disclosed embodiments increase speed of execution facilitating growing demand for algorithmic trading, increased price transparency, lower cost of trading, customer to customer trading, and automated asset allocations, recurring trades as well as clearing and settlement efficiencies.

  • Patent number: 11319728
    Abstract: An automated sash lock for locking a window sash comprises a linearly depressible trigger, a cam-style locking element normally biased towards a locked position, a rotatable detent actuated by the trigger, a pivotable transfer element between the detent and the locking element, and an actuator for manually operating the lock mechanism to unlock the lock when the window is in a closed and locked position. The detent is normally biased in the direction of the locking element and a portion of the detent engages a body portion of the locking element to maintain the locking element in a retracted position when the window is open. Upon actuation of the trigger by a closing window, the trigger translates linearly into the lock housing and rotates the detent into the disengaged position, pulling the detent away from the locking element and allowing the locking element to fire out of the lock housing and into an opening in a strike in the adjacent sash to prevent the sashes from relative sliding movement.

  • Patent number: 11313648
    Abstract: A telescopic sight for a hand-held weapon comprises a housing for an optical system that presents a telescopic image to a user, and a zoom adjustment ring on the housing. The optical system has objective and ocular lens systems and between these an image erector lens system, and a sighting element bearing a graphic image pattern at either a first focal plane between the image erector lens system and the objective lens system or a second focal plane between the image erector lens system and the ocular lens system. An optical zoom system is linked to the zoom adjustment ring for effecting a change in magnification. The zoom adjustment ring is movable over the housing in opposite forward and rearward axial directions between a locked position and an unlocked position to adjust the zoom magnification. In the locked position interengaging formations between the ring and housing slides into engagement.

  • Patent number: 11227439
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide remote training in a virtual reality (VR) environment. Multiple users may engage in the session. For example, a trainee may practice or be evaluated in performing a virtual version of a training task. A trainer may join the trainee's session. Embodiments enable the trainer to switch from a third-person perspective viewing the environment to the trainee's first-person perspective to see what the trainee is seeing. Virtual objects may be highlighted to guide the trainee's steps. Some embodiments may configure the training module to be engaged at various points out of order. For example, a user may select a specific point in a training sequence and work from there, replay or forward the environment in time to other points so that the trainee can skip or practice parts of the procedure.
