||WO||WO/2014/197964 - SPRING-LOADED CEILING MOUNT FOR A SECURITY CAMERA||18.12.2014||
||PCT/CA2013/050439||AVIGILON CORPORATION||MOHAN, Sudeep|
A ceiling mount for a security camera includes a back end located in a ceiling space when the ceiling mount is mounted, a front end located below the ceiling when the ceiling mount is mounted, and a spring-loaded clamp to clamp the ceiling mount to the ceiling. The spring-loaded clamp includes a spring connected to a force application member. The clamp can be locked in a loaded state before the mounting process begins. When in the loaded state the spring in the clamp is sufficiently deflected to allow the ceiling to pass between the front end and the force application member. During mounting, once the back end has been pushed into the ceiling space the clamp can be released from the loaded state, which allows the spring to push the force application member against the ceiling and secure the ceiling mount to the ceiling.

||PCT/CA2013/050902||SALTWORKS TECHNOLOGIES INC.||SPARROW, Benjamin|
A desalination system and method of operating the system to desalinate saltwater is disclosed. The desalination system includes a electrochemical desalination subsystem and a primary desalination subsystem, such as a thermal or reverse osmosis desalination system. The low multivalent ion concentration partially desalinated water from the electrochemical desalination subsystem is blended with low ion concentration desalinated water from the primary desalination subsystem to produce a blended desalted water that meets required specifications for release into the environment.

||PCT/CA2014/050359||IONADA INCORPORATED||PANZIERA, Edoardo|
There is disclosed a method and apparatus to reduce emissions of target emission gasses such Sulfur Oxides, Nitrogen Oxides, and Carbon Oxides from combustion exhaust such as marine engine exhaust by gas membrane separation and liquid carrier chemical absorption. The membrane separation system consists of an absorption system containing semi-permeable hollow fiber membranes through which is circulated a liquid absorbent. Exhaust gases contact the exterior surface of the membranes and the target gasses selectively permeate the membrane wall and are absorbed by the liquid carrier(s) within the bore and thereby removed from the exhaust stream.
||WO||WO/2014/197967 - A CONFIGURABLE SIMULATOR WITH TESTING CAPABILITIES||18.12.2014||
||PCT/CA2014/000322||CAE, INC.||GALIBOIS, Michel|
The present disclosure relates to a configurable simulator with testing capabilities, comprising a simulation controller and a plurality of configurable modular cards. The simulation controller determines configuration parameters of the cards and exchanges configuration messages with the cards. The simulation controller also receives and processes test notifications from the cards. Each card comprises a configurable input/output unit comprising a plurality of configurable inputs and outputs, and a power supply comprising a plurality of configurable power supply circuits. The input/output unit exchanges configuration messages with the simulation controller and sends the test notification. Each card further comprises a processor for configuring the configurable input/output unit, and the power supply. The processor also executes a simulation code to implement a functionality of the simulator. The processor further tests the input/output unit and the power supply, monitors the execution of the simulation code, and generates the test notification based on test results.
