Safety and Security

The designs provided herein are of a sound location detection device.
The purpose of this product is to identify the location of origin of a particular sound in any environment.
The primary usage of this product is in security purposes like identification of the direction from which a particular sound originated. The sound could be a gunshot, a scream, a cry for help or any other sound that a security personal or a rescue team may be interested in.

Its applicability is in open and closed environments both like war areas, surveillance, rescue operations etc.
Can also be used in films, where several sounds in the environment can be individually recorded thereby later editing of sound ...

SourcePoint
A consumer food tracking tool and database
In today's society, food quality and recalls have been a sore point with the general public and has brought into question our nation's ability to protect our food supply. Our current food regulations are outdated, based on the rate of recalls and the long delays in locating the source of contamination. Tracking outbreaks of E-coli and other bacterium that has infiltrated our food supply is a major concern. Thus, I have devised a system that will track our nations food sources and provide transparency in regards to food suppliers.
SourcePoint is a concept that brings the information about the origin of our foods into one centralized database. This information is ...

A Detonation Flame Arrestor (DFA) is designed to extinguish a flame front resulting from an explosion or detonation of a gas in a pipeline. However, in addition to extinguishing the flame, the DFA must be capable of dissipating (attenuate) the pressure front that precedes the flame front. The pressure front (shock wave) is associated with the propagation of the flame front through the unburnt gas toward the DFA. The flame induced pressure front is always in the same direction as the impinging flame travel. The pressure rise can range from a small fraction to more than 100 times the initial absolute pressure in the system and cause significant structural damage causing the DFA element to fail..
DFAs are used ...

A pocket size sonic weapon to stop dog attacks.

The Stop Dog uses Ultrasonic acoustics to stop vicious dog attacks by sending out a high power signal phased to alter a dogs brain wave pattern. A dog ready to attack has shifted from Alpha brain waves to an alternate state. The Stop Dog shifts the brain wave pattern back to a calm state. Dogs that resist the brain wave phasing, will experience spinal nervous system disruption causing them to flee.

To accomplish the effect of stopping a charging attack dog requires a range of at least 20 feet. That range requires unusual acoustic power output of 5 acoustic watts. Due to power conversion inefficiency, the electronic power requirements are ...

The contamination caused by the BP Oil Spill is an immediate danger to the Global ecosystem. Existing solutions (collection, abatement, dispersal, regaining well head control, drilling relief wells) will either take too long, or will not work to stop the flow. A radical solution is called for.

I propose drilling a set of pilot holes, parallel to the well, to a depth of several meters. Into these holes would be lowered explosives similiar to the British Bangalore Torpedo. The purpose would be to produce a coordinated application of force - starting at the top of the well head and proceeding downward - to squeeze the well pipe closed along a significant length, and/or collapse the well itself, to staunch ...

The apparatus described herein, a mud injector, stops undersea well blowouts by providing a method for injecting heavy drill muds at depth within a stricken well. It is assumed the well pipe has been prepared such that its top is unencumbered by various obstructions, and that the oil is issuing forth at high pressure.

The mud injector consists of a centering cylindrical frame that is lowered over a subsea oil well pipe. The frame guides a small diameter choke pipe as it is inserted into the well. The pressure of the muds injected from the choke pipe overcomes the pressure of the oil, thus stopping the blowout. The proposed apparatus has applications is such areas as the Gulf of ...

With recreational camping becoming more and more extreme, so are the risks. As campers extend their treks into unexplored terrain, a wide variety of things can effect the safety of their trip. With the Survival Solar Cooker campers no longer need to fear not having safe drinking water and properly prepared food. The Survival Solar Cooker is compact enough to easily fit into any camper’s pack. The Cooker’s reflective, flexible shields fold upright to attract sun light and reflect the solar heat onto the cooking plate. The shields can be easily adjusted according to the direction of the sun by their inner aluminum wire structure. The inner, reflective side is a Mylar material and the outer side is a ...

Vehicle Information Communication System (VIX) is designed to enhance the information communication between vehicles, as the supplement to the observation of the drivers. It is a wireless communication kit installed in a vehicle to actively provide the information about this vehicle or pass on the information it received to other vehicle as well as receiving information from them. Once VIX is built in, almost any information can be commuted among vehicles. For example, Car #1 running at the fast lane will inform Car #2 running at the slow lane ahead of it that I am going to bypass you, please do not turn left. So if the driver of Car #2 does not notice Car #1 and intends to ...

Stop the Leak II - The 'Improved' Junk Shot of Decreasing Diameters

As of 5/29/10, the 'Top Kill / Junk Shot' method of trying to stop the leak has not worked. They've tried golf balls, rope, and assorted other stuff--not very scientific. Those little white 'floaties' seen in the live cams are those items being ripped apart for lunch by the system.

My idea is of 'Decreasing Diameters' is more scientific. It improves the 'Junk Shot' by using numerous layers of balls of various sizes starting with 1-1/2" diameter, then 1", then 3/4", etc. to 1/16" dia. The material should be Delrin, Carbon Fiber, or other suitable material / composite to withstand the liquid and gaseous pressures of 6000 ...

The Heart Beacon's 'sync seeding" the cloud (synchronized time stamping of data collection, events, alerts) and network re-configuration on the fly enabled by heartbeat messages (used by SWIFT, Net Centric Warfare, Public Safety) will deliver enhanced network effects and net forensics’ enhancing data analytics through the cloud in context with SYNCHRONIZED shared, cross domain service efficiencies. Synchronized, predictable data refreshes enhance geo intelligence data visualization consistency to high level operation centers enhancing network forensics transaction non-repudiation and enabling end to end transactional integrity via an end to end system heartbeat (see Defense System Agencies SOA)

The Heart Beacon involves pre and post configuration management of the network and is neutral to systems and middleware. What Vinton Cerf and his ...
