  • Patent number: 8667617
    Abstract: An enhanced protective helmet includes in one embodiment an outer shell and a molded lining disposed within the outer shell and contoured to surround a human head. The helmet further includes an elongated antenna having a proximal end and a free end, the antenna being supported by the molded lining. The helmet includes a connection point which can be mounted to the molded lining or otherwise extend away from the proximal end of the antenna, the connection point communicatively connected to the proximal end of the antenna. The connection point receives a connection from a mobile communication device, thereby linking the mobile communication device and the antenna. The antenna is located at helmet location that is along one side of the helmet above a left or right ear of the user for optimizing antenna performance.

  • Publication number: 20130241799
    Abstract: A wireless communication device includes a support and a wireless communication device housing which is seatable in the support. The wireless communication device housing defines a channel in at least a portion thereof and which has a first pivot hole extending through a wall of the channel. An antenna has a first end and extends to a second, free end. The first end defines a pivot. The antenna is disposed in the channel so that the pivot is aligned with the first pivot hole. A pivot pin extends through the first pivot hole at the pivot.

  • Patent number: 8494172
    Abstract: Compensating for varying degrees of ambient noise in a mobile device. One possible noise compensation application has a plurality of selectable settings associated with a range of speeds of motion. This noise compensation application, when executed by the processor, configures the control circuit to: receive an input from the detector, detect an amplitude of the input, compare the amplitude with a selected one of the settings, and selectively adjust an amplification device when the detected amplitude is within a prescribed range. Another possible noise compensation application has plurality of selectable settings each associated with a range of audio frequencies. This noise compensation application, when executed by the processor, configures the control circuit to: receive an input from the detector, detect a frequency of the input, compare the frequency with a selected one of the settings, and selectively filter the ambient noise when the detected frequency is within a prescribed range.

  • Patent number: 8391792
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for a system and method for initiating ad-hoc communication between mobile headsets. A communication device is provided, including a processor and a control circuit which is connected to the processor and which has a paired-communication module that configures the processor to provide paired communication with at least one additional device. The control circuit further includes an ad-hoc communication module that configures the processor to establish and maintain an ad-hoc communication session with a second communication device that is not presently paired with the first communication device. The referenced communication session is enabled by acquiring an open communication channel. Additionally, a method for providing an ad-hoc communication session with at least one communication device is provided.

  • Publication number: 20120148080
    Abstract: Device for mounting a communication headset to helmets of the type having a first strap extending in front of an ear of a user, a second strap extending behind the ear, and a chin strap connectable to the first and second straps, for instance, sports helmets. The device includes a mounting panel having a seat that includes electrical contacts connected to a printed circuit board and a guide. A rear of the mounting panel spans a distance that overlaps the first second straps. A second surface also spans the distance that overlaps the first and second straps and is movable relative to the mounting panel. A clamp resiliently biases the second surface into contact with the rear surface of the mounting panel but is urgable so as to move the second surface away from the rear surface allowing the device to be fastened to or removed from the helmet.
