|PCT/GB2014/051099||AIRBUS OPERATIONS LIMITED||SJUNGARGÅRD, Petter|
A tank assembly with a tank (8) for storing liquid hydrocarbon, the tank (8) having a floor (16) for supporting a weight of the liquid hydrocarbon (18). A filter (20) is fitted to the floor (16) of the tank (8). The filter (20) is arranged to allow liquid water in the tank (8) to drain out of the tank (8) through the filter (20) but substantially prevent the liquid hydrocarbon (18) in the tank (8) from doing so. The filter (20) has a permeation member (22), such as a membrane, which is formed from a material such as graphene oxide which allows liquid water in the tank (8) to drain out of the tank (8) by permeating through the permeation member (22) but substantially prevent the liquid hydrocarbon (18) in the tank (8) from doing so.

A method of mapping an inter-tidal area, comprising: obtaining, over a period of time, image data comprising: a sequence of images of the inter-tidal area at a range of different stages of the tide, and the time at which each image was obtained; determining an elevation of a location in the image, by correlating the changes in an image value over time at the location with tidal data comprising the elevation of the tide over the period of time.
|6.||WO||WO/2014/174256 - SINGLE FIBER BRAGG GRATING AS DELAY LINE INTERFEROMETER||30.10.2014||
|PCT/GB2014/051214||ASTON UNIVERSITY||SHU, Xuewen|
A delay line interferometer comprising an optical waveguide having a distributed Bragg reflector, e.g. Bragg grating, fabricated therein. The distributed Bragg reflector has a refractive index modulation with a period variation Λ(z) along its length z that is arranged to output in transmission an output optical signal fout(t) in response to a input optical signal fin(t), wherein the output optical signal fout(t) is the result of temporal interference between one or more time- delayed replicas of the input optical signal fin(t). In other words, the distributed Bragg reflector is operable to generate and permit temporal interference between two or more time- delayed replicas of the input optical signal fin(t). The invention may thus mimic the behaviour of one or more MZIs.

|PCT/GB2014/050973||SONY CORPORATION||RICHARDS, Derek John|
A communications device establishes a communications context for communicating data packets using a packet communications bearer from the communications device via the mobile communications network. A controller of the communications device is configured to identify that the communications device can enter a stasis state because no data packets are available for transmission for a predetermined time via the packet communications bearer or there are no data packets to receive via the packet communications bearer, to transmit a stasis state message to the mobile communications network, and to store information relating to the communications context associated with the packet communications bearer in a data store. The stored information can be used by the controller to re-establish the packet communications bearer to transmit and/or receive data packets using the packet communications bearer, the communications device thereby entering the stasis state. As such there is an improvement in the use of communications resources and processing because the communications context and packet communications bearer is retained during periods in which there are no data packets for transmission or reception, so that there is a saving in signalling transmitted and received by the communications device which would be required to re-establish the communications context and an associated packet communications bearer for communicating data packets, when the data packets are available to transmit.

|PCT/GB2014/051085||ARM LIMITED||CAMPBELL, Michael, Andrew|
Memory access circuitry for controlling access to a memory comprising multiple memory units arranged in parallel with each other. The memory access circuitry comprising: two access units each configured to select one of the multiple memory units in response to a received memory access request and to control and track subsequent accesses to the selected memory unit, the multiple memory units comprising at least three memory units; arbitration circuitry configured to receive the memory access requests from a system and to select and forward the memory access requests to one of the two access units, the arbitration circuitry being configured to forward a plurality of memory access requests for accessing one memory unit to a first of the two access units, and to direct a plurality of memory access requests for accessing a further memory unit to a second of the two access units and to subsequently direct a plurality of memory access requests for accessing a yet further memory unit to one of the first or second access units. The two access units comprise storing circuitry to store requests in a queue prior to transmitting the requests to the respective memory unit; and tracking circuitry to track requests sent to the respective memory units and to determine when to transmit subsequent requests from the queue. The control circuitry is configured to set a state of each of the two access units, the state being one of active, prepare and dormant, the access unit in the active state being operable to transmit both access and activate requests to the respective memory unit, the activate request preparing the access in the respective memory unit and the access request accessing the data, the access unit in the prepare state being operable to transmit the activate requests and not the access requests, the access unit in the dormant state being operable not to transmit any access or activate requests, the control circuitry being configured to switch states of the two access units periodically and to set not more than one of the access units to the active state at a same time.
