Apparatus for determining the position and orientation of a helmet worn by a crew member in a vehicle including a generator, associated with the vehicle, which produces a rotating magnetic and electric field of fixed strength, orientation and frequency within at least a portion of the vehicle. The apparatus also includes a plurality of detectors each of which generates a signal proportional to at least one of the electric or magnetic fields at least one point associated with the helmet and calculation circuitry responsive to the signal for ascertaining the coordinates of the at least one point with respect to the generator and for determining the position and orientation of the helmet.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
