|20150204973||DEVICE AND METHOD FOR 3D SAMPLING WITH AVIAN RADAR - A 3D avian radar sampling system comprises a 3D volume scanning radar system and an avian track interpreter. Scanning methods employed ensure that volume revisit times are suitably short and track data produce 3D target trajectories. The avian interpreter uses the track data from the volume scanning radar to create detailed avian activity reports that convey bird abundance and behavior within a 3D cylindrical volume on intervals including hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. Hourly activity reports (updated typically every 15 minutes) provide enhanced situational awareness of developing hazards and are actionable, allowing operators to dispatch wildlife control personnel to respond to threats.||07-23-2015|
|20140097979||DEVICE & METHOD FOR COGNITIVE RADAR INFORMATION NETWORK - In cognitive radar information networks (CRINs) human-like cognitive abilities of attention and intelligence are built into radar systems and radar information networks (RINS) to assist operators with information overload. A CRIN comprises a plurality of radar sensing nodes monitoring an environment, a repository or memory, and a cognitive radar controller. Each radar sensing node includes a radio frequency transmitter, a transmitting antenna, and a receiver and receiving antenna. The receiver includes a digital radar processor for generating receiver information from the received echoes about the environment. The repository is configured for receiving and storing the receiver information generated by the digital radar processor. The cognitive controller is configured to automatically focus the system's attention on a region of interest within the surveillance volume in response to an attention request, by selecting the transmitter's waveform, selecting the receiver's processing mode, and controlling the transmitter's antenna. The cognitive controller learns from the environment by exploiting the repository's historical receiver information and further learns from the consequences of its past decision.||04-10-2014|
|20130342380||LOW COST, HIGH PERFORMANCE RADAR NETWORKS - A real-time radar surveillance system comprises at least one land-based non-coherent radar sensor apparatus adapted for detecting maneuvering targets and targets of small or low radar cross-section. The radar sensor apparatus includes a marine radar device, a digitizer connected to the marine radar device for receiving therefrom samples of radar video echo signals, and computer programmed to implement a software-configurable radar processor generating target data including detection data and track data, the computer being connectable to a computer network including a database. The processor is figured to transmit at least a portion of the target data over the network to the database, the database being accessible via the network by at least one user application that receives target data from the database, the user application providing a user interface for at least one user of the system.||12-26-2013|
|20130187834||Personal Electronic Target Vision System, Device and Method - A personal, electronic target vision system renders targets in the field of view of the user in real-time so that the user can visualize where the targets are relative to him, in an orientation analogous to unaided human vision. An electronic vision device exchanges target selection information with a target vision server which returns to the electronic vision device the corresponding selected target location information for rendering selected targets in accordance with the user's changing viewpoint. The target vision server queries a target information server in order to access, filter and provide the real-time target location information required by the electronic vision device. A surveillance system of sensors and target tracking systems provides the target information server with target location information.||07-25-2013|
|20130098309||DEVICE & METHOD FOR SMART, NON-HABITUATING, AUTOMATIC BIRD DETERRENT SYSTEM - Operation of a bird deterrent system includes i. measurement of bird habituation to activation of deterrent devices; ii. reduction of habituation through increased selectivity in activating deterrents only for birds posing a threat to or threatened by a protected area, and in particular, those within threat altitudes; iii. provision of analytical data in support of safety management systems, risk management, etc.; iv. integrated, wide-area radar coverage with multiple virtual intrusion zones providing multiple lines of defense around and over very large protected areas.||04-25-2013|
|20080266171||Device and method for 3D height-finding avian radar - A height-finding 3D avian radar comprises an azimuthally scanning radar system with means of varying the elevation pointing angle of the antenna. The elevation angle can be varied by employing either an antenna with multiple beams, or an elevation scanner, or two radars pointed at different elevations. Heights of birds are determined by analyzing the received echo returns from detected bird targets illuminated with the different elevation pointing angles.||10-30-2008|
