  • US Patent:
    7827630, Nov 9, 2010
  • Filed:
    Dec 16, 2008
  • Appl. No.:
    12/336154
  • Inventors:
    Roger Bostelman - Gaithersburg MD,
    James Albus - Kensington MD,
  • International Classification:
    A61G 7/10
  • US Classification:
    5 871, 5 861, 5 831
  • Abstract:
    The invention disclosed herein is a novel Home Lift Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) apparatus designed to provide stable movement along several critical axes of motion including lift capability. The HLPR apparatus is capable of moving along a desired floor path (“x-axis”), moving on a vertical axis to lift a patient (“z-axis”), rotating the HLPR apparatus itself (along an “outer rotational axis”), and rotating a patient within the HLPR apparatus while the HLPR apparatus itself remains stationary (along an “inner rotational axis”). The telescoping, double-nested C-frame structure of the HLPR apparatus and pivot assembly allow any patient support structure known in the art to be suspended securely and to move in a stable, torque-resistant manner to assist patients in rehabilitation and in independently performing activities of daily living.
  • Open Ocean Floating Algae Farm

    view source
  • US Patent:
    8161679, Apr 24, 2012
  • Filed:
    Dec 21, 2009
  • Appl. No.:
    12/643170
  • Inventors:
    James Sacra Albus - Kensington MD,
    Alverto Daniel Lacaze - Germantown MD,
    Karl Nicholas Murphy - Rockville MD,
  • International Classification:
    A01H 13/00
  • US Classification:
    47 14
  • Abstract:
    An open ocean floating algae farm built around a ship. The ship provides propulsion power for navigation, storage capacity for materials and algae products, machinery for harvesting and processing the algae, housing for crew, and facilities for maintenance of the floating farm. The invention is also comprised of transparent tubes that circulate a broth of seawater saturated with CO, nutrients, and algae. The circulation path flows from the ship through the tubes and back to the ship where the algae is filtered out to be processed. The fields of transparent tubes circulating the algae broth are supported by a square matrix of pressurized tubes filled with seawater. This matrix is neutrally buoyant and submerged just below the ocean surface. The internal pressure in the tubes causes the matrix to be stiff in the horizontal plane, but flexible in the vertical dimension so as to conform to long ocean waves.
  • Construction Of Large Structures By Robotic Crane Placement Of Modular Bridge Sections

    view source
  • US Patent:
    5511268, Apr 30, 1996
  • Filed:
    Aug 8, 1994
  • Appl. No.:
    8/286965
  • Inventors:
    James S. Albus - Kensington MD
    Ken Goodwin - Alexandria VA
    Yair Tene - N. Potomac MD
  • Assignee:
    The United States of America as represented by the Secretary of Commerce - Washington DC
  • International Classification:
    E01D 1512
  • US Classification:
    14 771
  • Abstract:
    A system for rapid, cost-effective construction of highway bridges, traffic verpasses and bypasses, and causeways over water or wetlands utilizes light-lift crane structures together with modular, light-lift bridge sections and an enhanced stabilized crane, using controlled cables, to improve the safety and efficiency of the construction process. Stabilization of the payload against pendulation and rotation enables safe operation in harsh environmental situations such as wind. The construction system utilizes continuous site assembly processes for building bridges and causeways from repetitive modular elements. In some embodiments, the system uses the payload (one or more modular bridge sections) as a component of a stable lifting and positioning system, thereby eliminating the need for heavy auxiliary lifting equipment such as spreader bars and platforms. Lifting cables of the crane are directly attached to the bridge payload, which becomes part of the lifting system during placement. Other embodiments utilize installed modular elements as a staging platform for constructing subsequent modular elements.

  • Filed:
    Dec 15, 1977
  • Appl. No.:
    5/860799
  • Inventors:
    James S. Albus - Kensington MD
  • Assignee:
    The United States of America as represented by the Secretary of Commerce - Washington DC
  • International Classification:
    G06F 906
  • US Classification:
    364300
  • Abstract:
    An adaptive control system is disclosed in which control functions involving many input variables are computed by referring to data stored in a memory. Each value of the control functions is distributed over a number of physical memory locations, such that the linear sum of the contents of these physical locations defines the value. An addressing algorithm is used in which the input variables are mapped into a set of intermediate mapping variables. Apparatus for accomplishing the intermediate mapping comprises first and second counters which are used to address a memory in which the intermediate variables are stored in a predetermined arrangement.
