The GNSS enabled handset calculates a plurality of possible position fixes... Agent: Mcandrews Held & Malloy, Ltd
20100220004 - Method and system for gnss assistance data or lto data download over a broadcast band: A combined GNSS and FM receiver receives FM signals comprising satellite navigation data from an AGNSS server. Associated navigation information such as a position fix is determined based on the received satellite navigation data. The received satellite navigation data are GNSS assistance data or LTO data. The AGNSS server generates... Agent: Mcandrews Held & Malloy, Ltd
20100220007 - Leo-based positioning system for indoor and stand-alone navigation: A method for estimating a precise position of a user device from signals from a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite includes receiving at least one carrier signal at a user device, each carrier signal being transmitted a distinct LEO satellite. The user device processes the carrier signals to obtain a... Agent: Hugh P. Gortler
20100220008 - System and method for optimal time, position and heading solution through the integration of independent positioning systems: A system for, and method of, blending (or integrating) pseudo-range or position measurements and bearing-to-transmitter measurements from an eLORAN or LORAN-C receiver and position (alternatively, pseudo ranges) and velocity (alternatively pseudo-range rate) measurements from a GPS receiver. The described system can also be integrated with additional external positioning systems. In... Agent: Chris A. Caseiro
20100220009 - Azimuth-independent impedance-matched electronic beam scanning from a large antenna array including isotropic antenna elements: A large periodic array of ideally isotropic antenna elements permits electronic beam scanning and has a performance of power coupling from signal sources at the antenna inputs which is independent of the azimuth (Φ) scanning direction, dependent only on one spatial variable (elevation angle, θ) of scanning Such performance from... Agent: Straub & Pokotylo
20100220010 - Method and apparatus for beam-forming signal in multi user-mimo wireless communication system: A base station is capable of transmitting a signal in a wireless communication network. The base station decides channel state information matrices of respective channels by determining a state of the channels corresponding to respective transmission antennas. The base station calculates transmission beam forming vectors for the respective transmission antennas... Agent: Docket Clerk
