  • Patent number: 11215708
    Abstract: It is prevented that a communication relay apparatus in an upper airspace, which is suitable for constructing a three-dimensional network, falls by a strong wind. A communication relay apparatus is provided with a relay communication station that performs a radio communication with a terminal apparatus, and is capable of flying in an upper airspace by an autonomous control or an external control. This communication relay apparatus includes a flight control section that controls a flight of the communication relay apparatus based on flight control information determined so as to reduce an influence of a strong wind generated around the communication relay apparatus. The flight control information may include information for controlling at least one of a flight direction, velocity, altitude, attitude, flight route and flight pattern of the communication relay apparatus.

  • Patent number: 4188565
    Abstract: At least one silicon-oxynitride film is deposited on an electroluminescence layer for providing a uniform and stable dielectric layer for an electroluminescence display panel. The silicon-oxynitride film is deposited using a sputtering technique by mixing a small amount (1 mol%) of nitrous oxide (N.sub.2 O) gas into a sputtering gas such as nitrogen (N.sub.2) gas. Oxygen (O.sub.2) gas may be substituted for the N.sub.2 O gas mingled within the sputtering gas in the amount of five mol%. A target for sputtering is a pure silicon or sintered Si.sub.3 N.sub.4 plate. An R.F. discharge is provided so that the power flux density on the target becomes several to several ten W. The silicon-oxynitride film is derived by means of the reaction between ion sputtering and the sputtering gas.
