*** ArdentSky Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 31 -- ArdentSky, Potomac, Md., has been assigned a patent (8,364,604) developed by Elliot Blatt, Potomac, Md., and Wei Liu, Great Falls, Va., for a "system and method for managing licenses." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "According to embodiments of the present invention, licenses for various industries are applied for and managed. Embodiments of the present invention provide for centralizing and standardizing the obtainment, completion, and submission of various license forms for applicants (e.g., any entity/person applying for, renewing, or otherwise requesting some type of license, renewal, extension, or other license related item) across plural jurisdictions. The license forms and other materials are collected from various sources. Embodiments of the present invention provide and maintain all relevant existing licenses or license applications, and further provide project management and calendar functions for licenses and license renewals. Users may be alerted when licenses require renewal, and/or license renewal date information may be integrated with user calendars. In addition, embodiments of the present invention generate attachments for license forms in the event the license form is unable to accommodate the amount of requested information being provided."

*** U.S. Navy Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 31 -- The U.S. Navy has been assigned a patent (8,363,775) developed by four co-inventors for "doping of semiconductor materials by nuclear transmutation." The co-inventors are Noel A. Guardala, Columbia, Md., Ian Patrick Wellenius, Raleigh, N.C., Jack L. Price Jr., Derwood, Md., and John F. Muth, Cary, N.C.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "As typically embodied, the inventive method features bombardment of atomic nuclei with .sup.3He ions in order to effect transmutation of atoms from a first atomic element to a second atomic element. Two notable inventive genres describe transmutation of: oxygen to nitrogen in an oxygen-containing target (e.g., including ZnO film); and, carbon to boron in a carbon-containing target (e.g., including SiC film). According to the former, transmutation of .sup.16O to .sup.15N occurs; more specifically, transmutation of .sup.16O to .sup.15O occurs via nuclear bombardment, and then transmutation of .sup.15O to .sup.15N occurs via decay by positron emission. According to the latter, transmutation of .sup.12C to .sup.11B occurs; more specifically, transmutation of .sup.12C to .sup.11C occurs via nuclear bombardment, and then transmutation of .sup.11C to .sup.11B occurs via decay by positron emission. Inventive practice frequently results in significant alteration of at least one physical property among: electronic carrier concentration; resistivity; photoconductivity; luminescence; morphology." The patent application was filed on Nov. 26, 2007 (11/998,861). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,63,775.PN.&OS=PN/83,63,775&RS=PN/83,63,775 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Greatbatch Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 31 -- Greatbatch, Clarence, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,364,283) developed by Henry R. Halperin, Pikesville, Md., and Robert A. Stevenson, Canyon Country, Calif., for a "band stop filter employing a capacitor and an inductor tank circuit to enhance MRI compatibility of active medical devices." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A band stop filter is provided for a lead wire of an active medical device (AMd.. The band stop filter includes a capacitor in parallel with an inductor. The parallel capacitor and inductor are placed in series with the lead wire of the AMD, wherein values of capacitance and inductance are selected such that the band stop filter is resonant at a selected frequency. The Q of the inductor may be relatively maximized and the Q of the capacitor may be relatively minimized to reduce the overall Q of the band stop filter to attenuate current flow through the lead wire along a range of selected frequencies. In a preferred form, the band stop filter is integrated into a TIP and/or RING electrode for an active implantable medical device." The patent application was filed on April 5, 2012 (13/440,382). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,364,283&OS=8,364,283&RS=8,364,283 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

Newhart, Elkridge, Md., for a "device for and method of collision-free hashing for near-match inputs." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A device and method of collision-free hashing of near-match inputs that includes the following components. An adder for receiving an input i, a check value cv, and outputs n, which is greater than or equal to the sum of i and cv. A checker for receiving a value n, a value d, a first polynomial, and an output at which the first polynomial appears if the checker determines that the first polynomial is of degree proportional to d and divides x.sup.n+1. A factorization block for factoring the first polynomial into a second polynomial and a third polynomial. A first division block for dividing an input of bit length i by the second polynomial to generate a first portion of the hash of the input. A second division block for dividing the input by the third polynomial to generate a second portion of the hash of the input." The patent application was filed on May 21, 2009 (12/454,691).

*** Cisco Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 31 -- Cisco Technology, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,363,836) developed by four co-inventors for "using authentication tokens to authorize a firewall to open a pinhole." The co-inventors are Daniel G. Wing, San Jose, Calif., David A. McGrew, Poolesville, Md., Cullen F. Jennings, Santa Cruz, Calif., and Eric G. Vyncke, Aleur, Belgium.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Techniques are described for the use of a cryptographic token to authorize a firewall to open a pinhole which permits certain network traffic to traverse firewalls. An initiating endpoint requests a token from a call controller, which authorizes a pinhole though the firewall. In response, the call controller may generate a cryptographic authorization token (CAT) sent towards the destination endpoint. The call controller may generate the token based on an authorization ID associated with the call controller, a shared secret known to both the call controller and the firewall, and data specific to the media flow for which authorization is requested." The patent application was filed on Jan. 16, 2009 (12/355,153). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,63,836.PN.&OS=PN/83,63,836&RS=PN/83,63,836 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

The co-inventors are Shree Jaisimha, Senoia, Ga., Mohammed Reza Kanji, Dearborn, Mich., Li Lian Lay, Urbana, Md., John Morris, Fayetteville, Ga., and James P. Reefe, Peachtree City, Ga.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method of operating an audio system having first and second sources includes outputting a first audio signal from the first source on first and second speakers. In response to a listener input, the first audio signal and a second audio signal from the second source are output simultaneously on the first and second speakers. The first signal is output from each of the first and second speakers such that the first signal is perceived by a listener to originate from a first direction toward the listener. The second signal is output from each of the first and second speakers such that the second signal is perceived by the listener to originate from a second direction toward the listener. The second direction is offset at least ninety degrees from the first direction." The patent application was filed on Jan. 30, 2009 (12/322,258). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,63,866.PN.&OS=PN/83,63,866&RS=PN/83,63,866 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.
