  • Patent number: 4750569
    Abstract: An electromagnetic shielding cabinet is provided with a unique latch which does not require shielding. The latch includes a rotatable handle connected to a rotatable cam by a link. The rotatable cam includes a slot which engages a roller stud on a door to open and close the door. Conductive gaskets are provided on the cabinet walls and are engaged by wedges on the door, the rotation of the cam assisting in urging the wedge into or out of the space between flexible finger stock pieces. Because the latch is provided in a small recess in the side wall of the cabinet, no significant interior space of the cabinet is utilized.

  • Patent number: 4249791
    Abstract: An objective with two lens elements has a first fully-reflective plane mir between the lens elements, and a second such mirror between the objective and a detector. The outermost lens element and the first mirror are carried in a housing rotatable with respect to another housing carrying the other lens elements and the second mirror. The other housing is rotatable about an axis between the second mirror and the detector. The system may thus do elevation scanning by rotating the first housing, and azimuth scanning by rotating the two housings about the mentioned axis. Image stabilization is accomplished by appropriately stabilizing one or both mirrors.
