  • Publication number: 20200319027
    Abstract: A system for acquiring both the spatial and spectral dimensions of a spectral image cube either simultaneously with a single frame acquisition, or sequentially with a small number of frames, using a sensor that uses an array of pixel-size, narrow wavelength bandpass filters placed in close proximity to a focal plane array (FPA), and for processing the acquired data to retrieve spectral image cubes at the pixel resolution of the FPA.

  • Patent number: 9757069
    Abstract: A method for using an earpiece (800) in a work environment is provided. The earpiece (800) attenuates sound from the work environment to the user's ear. The earpiece (800) includes an ear canal microphone (820) for measuring a sound pressure level in an ear canal of the user. Sound pressure levels are measured periodically while in the work environment. Each measured sound pressure levels is stored in memory (127) of the earpiece with time and location information. The sound pressure level information is downloaded to a database (1704) when the earpiece is removed from the user ear for recharging. The sound pressure level information is analyzed and any potential noise compliance issues in the work environment are identified.
