  • Publication number: 20200122393
    Abstract: Methods and systems for fabricating a component by consolidating a first portion of a particulate include a louvered particulate containment wall positioned around the component and a second portion of the particulate. At least one louver is coupled to the particulate containment wall adjacent at least one opening in the particulate containment wall. The particulate containment wall is positionable between a first position in which the louver prevents the second portion of the particulate from flowing through the passage and a second position in which the second portion of the particulate is able to flow through the passage. The methods include switching the particulate containment wall from the first position to the second position and allowing the second portion of the particulate to flow out of the interior space through the at least one opening.

  • Publication number: 20180006710
    Abstract: The described features generally relate to receiving one or more positioning signals at a satellite terminal during installation of the satellite terminal at a customer premises, and providing position-based access to a satellite communications system based on a satellite terminal installation position determined from the received positioning signals. The determined installation position of the satellite terminal may then be employed for various network access techniques, such as providing access to the satellite communications system, providing position-based content, or restricting content via the satellite communications system based on the determined installation position.

  • Patent number: 8489018
    Abstract: A method for determining a frequency correction and a symbol rate correction for transmissions from a user terminal in a satellite communications system comprises determining a frequency of a signal received at the user terminal, and determining a symbol rate of the signal received at the user terminal. The method also comprises computing an error associated with an oscillator at an outdoor unit of the user terminal, and computing an error associated with an oscillator at an indoor unit of the user terminal. The method also comprises computing a transmit frequency correction for the user terminal based on the error of the oscillator at the outdoor unit and the error of the oscillator at the indoor unit, and computing a transmit symbol rate correction for the user terminal based on the error of the oscillator at the indoor unit.

  • Patent number: 8390485
    Abstract: Digital communications interleavers re-order the bits of a data coding block in a way that can be described by a table of indices that map the original order to the interleaved order. Conventional interleavers include index table interleavers, which store an index table ahead of operation and algorithmic Interleavers, which generate the indices during operation. Described herein are a new class of interleavers: Subset Transform Interleavers. A subset of generator outputs is selected and processed to create the interleaver indices. The selection is determined apriori and the selection results are stored in a Subset Usage Table. During operation, the generator is operated again and the Subset Usage Table entries determine which generator outputs are used. The generator may be a pseudo-random number generator. Implementations can use an Indexes Remaining Table, which can additionally be manipulated during operation such that it returns to an initialized state after each block interleaving process.

  • Patent number: 8141624
    Abstract: An apparatus for recovering heat from exhaust air received from a restaurant kitchen. Rotating backwards inclined fan blades draw exhaust air from the kitchen along a flow path and impel it against walls of a housing, such that grease is removed from the exhaust air. A fan motor is positioned out of the flow path. The exhaust air is pushed out of the housing to a heat recovery coil directly downstream that is formed from a heat conductive material. The coil has an internal conduit through which a heat transfer fluid is supplied at a temperature below the exhaust air temperature, such that the fluid in the conduit is heated by exhaust air passing over the conductive material. After leaving the conduit, heat energy is transferred from the fluid to makeup air for return to, or to water for use in, the restaurant.
