A driven accessory comprising a first rotary clutch portion, a second rotary clutch portion, a wrap spring and an actuator. The actuator is selectively operable for generating a force that is applied to a second end of the wrap spring. The actuator includes an actuator input member that is rotatable about a rotary axis relative to the first rotary clutch portion. The actuator input member is axially movable along the rotary axis between a first position, in which the actuator input member is drivingly engaged to the first rotary clutch portion to cause the wrap spring to uncoil against a clutch surface on the first rotary clutch portion such that rotary power is transmitted between the first rotary clutch portion and the second rotary clutch portion, and a second position in which the actuator input member is disengaged from first rotary clutch portion.

|PCT/CA2012/001024||SOLAR SHIP INC.||WALLACE, Steve|
A method and system for manufacturing complex, three-dimensional textile structures is disclosed. These textile structures may be large and heavy and difficult to maneuver without damaging them. The method enables various types of joints to be constructed between textile panels plus the application of patches and details onto the surface of these panels. The method minimizes handling and damage to the textile material. The method also reduces the manpower required during the manufacturing process, thus minimizing manufacturing time and cost.

|PCT/CA2012/001029||FUGRO CANADA CORP.||MILES, Philip John|
The present invention provides a light weight, modular and rigid structure for supporting the transmitter loop of an airborne electromagnetic system. The airborne electromagnetic surveying system comprises a tow assembly connected to an aircraft, the tow assembly including a transmitter section comprising a transmitter coil for generating a primary electromagnetic field that induces a secondary electromagnetic field. The transmitter coil is supported by a generally rigid transmitter frame. The transmitter frame comprises a plurality of frame sections assembled in a way such that the generally rigid transmitter frame substantially retains a rigid shape during operation. The system may also include a receiver section located above the generally rigid transmitter frame in between the aircraft and the generally rigid transmitter frame for detecting the secondary electromagnetic field.

|PCT/CA2011/001221||TANNER, Christopher||TANNER, Christopher|
The present invention relates to a novel building system, which provides structural building panels, headers, connectors, insulating foam, sealants and membranes, which collectively are used to erect a building structure for cost-effective, energy efficient, low carbon footprint, weatherproof and easy-to-assemble structures for use in warm or cold climates even in locations of the world where specialized labor is scant. The walls, floors, ceilings and roofs have both vertical compression-resistance strength and horizontal bending-resistance strength sufficient that the structural building panels can be used in both above-ground and below- ground building wall structural applications, including applications where buildings are exposed to severe wind and other weather, such as hurricanes, tornadoes and the like. Said panels can replace concrete, wood or steel and can be adequate to meet corresponding required strength specifications for typical residential, commercial, agricultural and manufacturing buildings. The invention further permits to clad the inside and outside of the resulting building with such materials which permit to create an aesthetically pleasing structure if desirable to the end user.
