A method and apparatus for reducing the unwanted sideways motion of an airplane by reducing the lateral side loads and upsets caused by atmospheric turbulence and gusts is disclosed. A rudder modification command that causes the rudder command of the airplane to be changed in a manner that relieves the net force across...
An apparatus for detecting pulse waves and motion intensity of a living body in motion is disclosed. The apparatus has photosensors of the photo-coupler type for wavelengths of 660 nm and 940 nm, respectively. The sensors are attached to a person under examination, and provide output signals which include a blood pulse...
To analyze the bond between the skin and core of a metal honeycomb section a hologram is formed of the skin surface and then the skin is heated and a real time holographic interferometry comparison is made. The bowing of the section during the heating results in a high interference fringe frequency over much of the sur...
A motor shaft for a rotational-to-direct motion converting motor has a rotation stopping portion formed in a plate shape, and a screw portion formed in a columnar shape. In addition, the motor shaft has a hole, arranged in an end portion of the motor shaft in a longitudinal direction of the motor shaft, for positioning...
A motion picture intermediate film has on one side of a support material, in order, an antihalation undercoat and at least one silver halide emulsion layer; and on the opposite side of the support a transparent, process surviving antistatic backing layer. The transparent, antistatic backing layer retains its antistatic...
This Device and Method for Recording, Editing and Displaying Motion-Simulating Moving Pictures begins with the recording of opposite perspective views by stationing recording devices in an opposite facing manner on a movable platform. As the recording devices are moved in a horizontal motion, they capture images as the...
An electronic system and method for minimizing the loss of image sharpness caused by image motion during the exposure interval of a camera using electro-optical area array image sensors is provided. Differential speed clocking is performed using a set of parallel shift registers to achieve improved image motion compens...
A method for reducing a response time of the pixels corresponding to a period of time required for a selected pixel at a starting pixel value to reach a target pixel value. Providing an n×n factored zero diagonal LCD overdrive matrix and for a selected pixel at a particular start pixel value, selecting a particular ta...
Disclosed herein are systems and methods for detecting motion of an object, such as the paw of rat. A tag comprising an inductive element and a capacitive element may be attached to the object and the motion detected by monitoring the affect of the tag on a time-varying magnetic field....
