  • Publication number: 20190134174
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, methods and compositions are provided for generating immune responses against tumor antigens such as a HER2/neu antigen or epitope. In particular embodiments there may be provided methods for constructing and producing recombinant adenovirus-based vector vaccines containing nucleic acid sequences encoding tumor antigens such as a HER2/neu antigen or epitope that allow for vaccinations in individuals with preexisting immunity to adenovirus.

  • Patent number: 8711007
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program product for displaying information about runways. A runway for an aircraft is identified when the aircraft is within a selected distance of the runway. A number of graphical indicators are displayed on a display in a flight deck. The number of graphical indicators corresponds to a number of features of the runway present in a field of view for an eye reference point in the flight deck.

  • Patent number: 8180562
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for building, creating, or otherwise specifying an airport ground taxi navigation route for an aircraft from an input of the route is disclosed. The apparatus includes a keypad, voice recognition device, or other entry device, a processor, a display screen, and a navigation map database. A crewmember on the aircraft uses the entry device to enter all or part of the ground navigation taxi route. The entry device converts the received route information into an input text string, either with or without delimiters. The system parses the input text string by extracting characters or substrings from the input text string. A database lookup component searches the map database to find a route component that matches the character or substring. If the system finds a matching route component, it determines if the matching route component is continuous with the taxi route. The system adds the matching route component to the taxi route and displays any discontinuity.

  • Patent number: 7222017
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for the efficient entry and display of ground taxi routes on an electronic airport map display. The system may include a touchscreen entry device, a display device, a computer, a map database, a vehicle position sensor and a transmitter/receiver. The system may be configured to check the ground taxi entries to ensure that each successive segment is contiguous with the last or next segment, and any gaps or discontinuities in the displayed taxi instructions may be annunciated. An intelligent display of next possible segments may be incorporated into the system.

  • Patent number: 4835469
    Abstract: In a system for troubleshooting a unit containing microprocessor-based digital circuitry including a bus, wherein the system includes a digital test apparatus that emulates the microprocessor of the unit to test components on the bus and a device for interfacing signals between the test apparatus and the microprocessor comprises a clip that mounts to the microprocessor in electrical contact with the microprocessor leads. The clip preferably is of a type adapted to attach resiliently to the leads of all four sides of a soldered-in microprocessor in a leaded chip carrier housing. A connector to couple the clip to the test apparatus through a wire harness is mounted on a printed circuit board carrying pins corresponding to the lines of the microprocessor bus and the clip, and cables extending from the circuit board to the clip are coupled to the pins of the circuit board and clip by push connectors.

  • Patent number: 4714436
    Abstract: A test clip and grounding adapter assembly comprises a conventional integrated circuit test clip of a type having parallel arrays of signal conductors retained in a pair of molded plastic arms biased closed on the leads of a unit under test.An adaptor in accordance with the invention having twice as many conductors as the test clip interconnects the test clip and a ribbon cable. The additional conductors within the adaptor interposed with the signal conductors in the clip are grounded to electrically shield the signal wires.
