  • Patent number: 11259193
    Abstract: Systems and methods for obtaining data for Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) events caused by interfering signals, such as radar signals, in mobile WiFi wireless communication networks on airplanes. The systems and methods utilize wireless access points (WAPs) on in-flight entertainment systems on airplanes to detect DFS events, and obtain DFS event data. The DFS event data is transmitted to a ground system which is configured to utilize the DFS event data to generate DFS messages which allow a WAP on another airplane to avoid the interfering signals that caused the DFS event. The ground system transmits the DFS messages to other airplanes which use the information in the DFS message to configure a WAP to avoid DFS events. The ground system may also be configured to analyze and generate a 3D DFS map which can be used to generate radio channel plans to avoid DFS events.

  • Patent number: 10880703
    Abstract: Wireless mobile device functionality can be added to radio devices via a hardware device that comprises wireless network access. Alternatively, radio device functionality can be shared with a wireless mobile device or the hardware device. The functionalities of either device can be shared via a physical or wireless connection. For example, a microphone device comprising a display screen and long-term evolution (LTE) functionality can be connected to a radio device to facilitate LTE functionality for the radio device. Thus, a user of the radio device can utilize the display screen of the microphone device to send text data, which could not previously be sent by the radio device, over the wireless network via the microphone device.

  • Patent number: 10880859
    Abstract: Methods and systems for determining the location of a Bluetooth device using a standard broadcast packet containing known data. Multiple antennas are used to take measurements of the packet are converted into in-phase and quadrature components, then a low-pass filter is applied. The known data presents an in-phase and quadrature spectrum that is a continuous wave-tone representation of the packet signal in the passband of the low-pass filter. Multiple measurements are used to determine the phase difference of the filtered measurements at the different antenna locations. Phase difference is used to determine the location of the device.
