The Saab Sensis Corporation is a company based in DeWitt, New York. Sensis specializes in radar and passive sensors for airport surveillance and air defense. Sensis is the prime contractor for the ASDE-X air traffic control system which is used by the FAA at 34 US airports. ASDE-X uses airport surveillance radar, automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast, multilateration and surface movement radar to pinpoint the locations of aircraft and vehicles on the airport surface and airspace.In 2006, Sensis Corporation, in partnership with many other local CEOs from growing companies in Syracuse, formed The Famous Entrepreneurs Series. Anaren Inc., Clear Channel Communications, Communigration, Dolphin Technologies, O’Brien & Gene, PPC, SRC and United Radio were some of the other FES founding companies. The Famous Entrepreneurs Series is a lecture series that hosts quarterly lectures, seeking to encourage entrepreneurial ideas in the community.In July 2010, Sensis made a permanent downsize to remove 84 jobs, and it was announced in July 2011 that Swedish defense company Saab AB had signed a deal to purchase Sensis for $155 million.In January 2014 30 people were made redundant from the company's air traffic management business. Ten months later Sensis' president, Ken Kaminski, resigned. It was also announced that there would be a further 27 job losses. Sensis cited a challenging business environment for both rounds of layoffs. Wikipedia.

The system and method of the present invention provides a mobile node (e.g., target), such as an aircraft, vehicle or mobile piece of equipment, the ability to determine its own position by passively listening to wireless time synchronization communications, such as IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) messages, exchanged between nodes over a wireless network.

A method of using airport surveillance data to determine a location of a delay and an amount of time a vehicle is subjected to the delay during a movement of the vehicle between locations including obtaining a time-ordered sequence of data points representing the movement of the vehicle, creating a speed vector (sv) for each data point, replacing ground speed elements in the speed vector (sv) with a one when the ground speed element is less than a speed threshold, performing a spatial density test on each data point in a sequence of consecutive one entries, defining a starting and stopping index for a consecutive sequence of data points as a preliminary hold, determining whether to merge adjacent preliminary holds, determining a time duration of each preliminary hold and eliminating any preliminary hold having a time duration less than a predetermined time duration and outputting the results.

The present invention is a corpsman/medic medical assistant system that includes a portable transmit/receive pack, sensor leads for first and second physiological sensor subsystems and a corpsman/medic medical assistant control unit that includes a wireless transceiver. The portable transmit/receive pack has a sealed housing that includes the first and second physiological sensor subsystems, at least one processor running at least one algorithm, a wireless transceiver, and memory with a front panel that includes a display, at least one event key, a treatment button for recording treatment data, a timer, an observation button for recording observation data, and a plurality of physiological trend indicators. The algorithm determines a current physiological trend status of the patient based on the plurality of physiological measurements, and the transmit/receive pack links to the control unit by the wireless transceiver and receives the current physiological trend status of the patient.

The present invention is an acoustic traveling wave tube system for propagating a directional acoustic wave comprising an acoustic traveling wave tube having a cylindrical shape with a load on one end of the tube, a plurality of excitation rings positioned around a circumference of the tube and spaced at predetermined intervals along a length of the tube and a microprocessor having a database containing a plurality of waveforms representative of acoustic signals. The microprocessor energizes one of the plurality of excitation rings to form an acoustic wave, sequentially energizes one or more of the remaining excitation rings along the length of the tube to amplify the acoustic wave as the acoustic wave travels along the length of the tube, and propagates the acoustic wave from an end of the tube opposite the load as a shaped directional acoustic wave.
