  • Patent number: 5829242
    Abstract: The modulus of stretch af a fibrous rope is reduced by impregnating a pluity of spaced-apart segments of the rope with an epoxy plastic thereby to reduce the modulus of stretch of the segment equal to zero after curing the plastic. The overall modulus of stretch of a re-manufactured rope taken as a whole is proportional to the ratio of the length of an impregnated segment relative to a unit length of the rope.

  • Patent number: 6681675
    Abstract: A method for remotely accessing packages suspect of containing hazardous devices. The method includes using a continuous stream of high velocity abrasive particles and/or fluid(s) created in-situ while attached to a remotely or autonomously operated vehicle to breach the exterior surface of a suspect package well below the impact initiation threshold thus preventing sufficient stimuli to initiate explosive, pyrotechnic, or flammable materials. An automatic standoff device may be used to allow the operator of a remotely operated vehicle or the feedback mechanism of an autonomously operated vehicle to optimally locate the abrasive fluid stream.

  • Patent number: 4041795
    Abstract: This invention relates to a device for producing precise linear movement in response to a rotary input. More particularily, the invention comprises two threaded shafts respectively having threads of different pitches, one of the shafts being secured against both axial and rotation movements and the other shaft being connected to an actuated device in such fashion that only axial movements of the other shaft is permitted, and cylindrical member rotated by a power source connected by separate threaded sections to both said threaded shafts, whereby rotation of the cylindrical member results in a low speed movement of the actuated member at a rate proportional to the difference in the reciprocals of the thread pitches.

  • Patent number: 10518851
    Abstract: Disclosed are a system and method for undersea navigation with a maritime vehicle or diver undersea navigation device. A sensor interface receives navigation information from a plurality of sensors used to sense navigation information. A processor receives the navigation information from the sensor interface. The processor converts the navigation information into graphics data. The processor provides the graphics data to a graphics processing unit to render a navigation board image on a display of the maritime vehicle or diver undersea navigation device. The navigation board image comprises a plurality of navigation indicators to indicate the navigation information and a compass comprising a plurality of rotational orientation indicators to indicate rotational orientation information. The rotational orientation indicators include a plurality of heading direction indicators, a current heading indicator, and a plurality of pitch indicators, where the plurality of pitch indicators indicate pitch information.

  • Patent number: 5004309
    Abstract: An optical apparatus for simulating a highly interconnected neural network is disclosed as including a spatial light modulator (SLM), an inputting device, a laser, a detecting device, and a page-oriented hologaphic component. The inputting device applies input signals to the SLM. The holographic component optically interconnects N.sup.2 pixels defined on the spatial light modulator to N.sup.2 pixels defined on a detecting surface of the detecting device. The interconnections are made by N.sup.2 patterns of up to N.sup.2 interconnection weight encoded beams projected by N.sup.2 planar, or essentially two-dimensional, holograms arranged in a spatially localized array within the holographic component. The SLM modulates the encoded beams and directs them onto the detecting surface wherein a parameter of the beams is evaluated at each pixel thereof.
