  • Patent number: 11460567
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to radar signaling utilizing a non-uniform multi input/multi output (MIMO) antenna array including first and second uniform MIMO antenna arrays respectively having both sparsely-arranged transmitting antennas and sparsely-arranged receiving antennas. Communication circuitry is configured to determine a direction of arrival of reflections of radar signals transmitted by the transmitting antennas and received by the receiving antennas, by comparing the reflections received by the first MIMO array with the reflections received by the second MIMO array during a common time period (e.g., at the same time). Using this approach, the antenna arrays may be utilized to provide co-prime spacing/elements and to suppress ambiguities in received reflections based on alignment thereof.

  • Patent number: 11425741
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described that support time mask techniques for shortened transmission time intervals (sTTIs) that may enhance low latency communications. Time masks may be identified and applied for transmissions that use sTTIs, in a manner that provides increased portions of sTTI durations having higher transmission power, and thus increase the likelihood of successful reception of such transmissions at a receiver. In some cases, a transmitter, such as a user equipment (UE), may identify one or more sTTIs for transmissions of a first wireless service (e.g., an ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) service). An sTTI may be identified based on a duration of a TTI associated with the first wireless service being below a threshold duration (e.g., a TTI duration of less than 1 ms may be identified as an sTTI).

  • Patent number: 11418030
    Abstract: Fast simultaneous feasibility testing (SFT) for management of an electrical power grid is achieved through various innovations. The computation problem relates to evaluation of candidate solutions for external power flows into a power grid, with respect to predetermined constraints and contingencies. Storage and computations are reduced by formulating the problem in terms of transactional nodes (e.g. third party connections for generators and loads) instead of the larger number of bus nodes. Further advantages are achieved by precomputing matrices that can be reused across multiple SFT invocations, organizing matrices and operations to reduce storage and computation, and eliminating branches that have no contingency violations.

  • Patent number: 11381404
    Abstract: An existing Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) framework is modified to overcome message size limitations by implementing a control byte that enables segmentation of SASL messages. In implementations in which client computing devices utilize a trusted platform module (TPM) for enhanced security, the client computing device can transmit multiple public keys and other information to a provisioning service during an attestation process. This information can be segmented across multiple messages while leveraging the SASL framework. A control byte may be utilized in each message and define attributes about the respective messages, such as whether a current message is an interim or final message segment. Likewise, the provisioning service can divide a challenge key into multiple segments and include a control byte for each segment. The control byte within segmented messages enables utilization of the TPM public keys and thereby can leverage the heightened security provided by the TPM.

  • Patent number: 11343865
    Abstract: Aspects relate to managing a device-to-device communication link via radio resource control (RRC) layer signaling. In an example operation, a first wireless communication device establishes a unicast link with a second wireless communication device over a device-to-device communication interface and determines that the unicast link is to be reconfigured with at least one updated parameter. The first wireless communication device then sends a link reconfiguration request to the second wireless communication device via a first RRC message over the communication interface. The first RRC message includes the at least one updated parameter. The first wireless communication device receives a link reconfiguration response from the second wireless communication device via a second RRC message over the communication interface based on the link reconfiguration request and determines whether to reconfigure the unicast link using the at least one updated parameter based on the received link reconfiguration response.
