A distance between the first antenna aperture... Agent: Harris Corporation C/o Darby & Darby PC
20100052987 - Electronically steered, dual-polarized, dual-plane, monopulse antenna feed: A method and apparatus for electronically steering a RADAR beam across an array of feed horns by moving the phase center of the beam to different origination points on the array—each origination point being the phase center of a feed horn pair. Variations include polarized beams, polarized feed horns, dual-beam... Agent: Birch Stewart Kolasch & Birch
20100052988 - Radio frequency positioning system and method: A radio frequency (RF) positioning system for positioning an RF device on a surface is provided. The RF positioning system utilizes the property of the RF device generating a response signal upon receiving an RF signal to perform positioning. The RF positioning system includes an antenna set, a switch unit,... Agent: Edell, Shapiro & Finnan, LLC
20100052989 - Method and apparatus for determining at a predetermined granularity the direction and range of a transmitting mobile device: Systems and methods for determining a direction and range, at a predetermined level of granularity, for a transmitting device in a communications system are presented. Determinations, based on indicia related to the signal conditions, information contained in the received signals, and/or inferences surrounding the transmission conditions can be employed in... Agent: Qualcomm Incorporated
20100052990 - Portable, iterative geolocation of rf emitters: Iterative geolocation of a stationary RF emitter through the use of TDOA may include the use of a single portable geolocation (e.g., TDOA) sensor, a pair of portable geolocation sensors and three of more portable geolocation sensors. Adding portable geolocation sensors to the iterative process reduces the constraints on the... Agent: Woodcock Washburn LLP
20100052991 - Wireless position location and tracking system: Techniques for accurate position location and tracking suitable for a wide range of facilities in variable environments are disclosed. In one aspect, a system for position location comprises a plurality of sensors (e.g. a network monitor, an environment sensor) for generating measurements of a plurality of sources, a plurality of...
