|PCT/GB2014/000214||BRITISH TELECOMMUNICATIONS PUBLIC LIMITED COMPANY||COOPER, Ian Robert|
To initiate the transmission of electrical power over a telecommunications connection (14) from a power-collecting telecommunications interface unit (16) such as a customer premises equipment, connectable to a power supply (18), to a power-receiving unit (22, Fig 4) such as a kerbside electrical/cptical interface, when a connection (14) is first established, or the collecting unit is first powered up, or in order to re-establish connection after a power outage, control signals are transmitted between low-power modems (55) in the interface units using a low-power communications protocol. This allows the controlled initiation of a larger power output and a higher speed exchange of data once the full telecommunications connection has been established. A low-powered beacon signal is transmitted over the telecommunications connection (14) by the power-collecting telecommunications interface unit on connection to a power supply (18), for detection by the power-receiving telecommunications interface unit. In the event of a loss of power at the input (18), the low power modem (55) initiates power management control signals to cause the power-receiving telecommunications interface to shut down certain functions in order to preserve backup power for essential "lifeline" services.

|PCT/GB2014/051601||ARM LIMITED||FRANCIS, Hedley James|
A processing apparatus comprising: several processors for processing data; a hierarchical memory system comprising a memory accessible to all the processors, and several caches corresponding to each of the processors, each of the caches being accessible to the corresponding processor and comprising storage locations and corresponding indicators. There is also cache coherency control circuitry for maintaining coherency of data stored in the hierarchical memory system. The processors are configured to respond to receipt of a predefined request to perform an operation on a data item to determine if the cache corresponding to the processor receiving the request has a storage location allocated to the data item. If not, the processing apparatus is configured to: allocate a storage location within the cache to the data item, set the indicator corresponding to the storage location to indicate that the storage location is storing a delta value, set data in the allocated storage location to an initial value. The processor is configured in response to the predefined request to perform the operation on data within the storage location allocated to the data item.

|PCT/GB2014/051373||ARM LIMITED||BRATT, Ian|
A coherent memory system includes a plurality of level 1 cache memories (6) connected via interconnect circuitry (18) to a level 2 cache memory (8). Coherency control circuitry (10) manages coherency between lines of data. Evict messages from the level 1 cache memories to the coherency control circuitry (10) are sent via the read address channel AR. Read messages are also sent via the read address channel AR. The read address channel AR is configured such that a read message may not be reordered relative to an evict message. The coherency control circuitry (10) is configured such that a read message will not be processed ahead of an evict message. The level 1 cache memories (6) do not track in-flight evict messages. No acknowledgement of an evict message is sent from the coherency control circuitry (10) back to the level 1 cache memory (6).

||PCT/GB2014/051729||BCB INTERNATIONAL LIMITED||SEARLE, Matthew|
FIG. 7 shows an air cannon system loaded with a launch canister containing a prop- fouler. A pressure vessel (28) contains an inlet including a poppet valve (100) that, upon command, can be selectively placed in either a one-way flow position to permit charging of the pressure vessel or otherwise opened to trigger rapid discharge through pressure equalization with the ambient environment. The air cannon may include multiple splayed barrels or a single barrel (158). A launch canister (202), realized in the form of a tube, hasa driving plate (350) that closes an end of the launch tube. The driving plate is the first point loaded into the barrel. Within the launch canister (202) a first portion of a floating prop-fouling line is stored. The prop-fouling line, such as made from Dyneema®, has at its ends two drogues that, upon entry into the water, fill with water to produce drag resistance to movement of the prop-fouling line. To avoid undue stress on canopy panels of each drogue and to avoid twisting of shroud lines (312) to the canopy, a rotating shackle (310a, 310b) acts as a coupling point between the shroud lines (312) and the prop-fouling line. Only one drogue (306), its associated coupling and a selected length prop-fouling line are loaded into the launch canister, with the other drogue and its rotating shackle (310b) loaded into a cradle (166). Upon firing, gas expansion causes the rapid acceleration and ejection of the launch tube (202) and generally straight line deployment of the prop-fouling line (302).
