||PCT/RU2013/000312||LLC "TOPCON POSITIONING SYSTEMS"||TATARNIKOV, Dmitry Vitalievich|
An antenna system for a global navigation satellite system reference base station is disclosed. The antenna system includes an antenna positioned above a high capacitive impedance surface (HCIS) ground plane. Over a specific range of the lateral dimension of the HCIS ground plane and the height of the antenna above the HCIS ground plane, a high level of multipath suppression and high sensitivity for low-elevated satellites can be simultaneously maintained. The HCIS ground plane can be fabricated as a flat conducting plate with an array of conducting elements such as pins, pins with expanded tips, or mushroom structures. Alternatively, the HCIS can be fabricated as a flat conducting plate with a concentric series of choke rings. The antenna system can provide a positioning accuracy of +/-1 mm, an order of magnitude improvement over previous designs.

||PCT/RU2013/000311||LLC "TOPCON POSITIONING SYSTEMS"||VEITSEL, Andrey Vladimirovich|
A navigation receiver operably coupled to an antenna can determine location by receiving and processing radiofrequency navigation signals from global navigation satellites. The navigation receiver includes a quartz crystal oscillator that serves as a reference frequency source for a local oscillator signal that is mixed with the radiofrequency navigation signals to generate intermediate signals at intermediate frequencies lower than the radiofrequencies. In particular applications, the quartz crystal oscillator and the antenna are subjected to vibration and shock. A shift in the frequency or phase of the intermediate signals can result, and performance of phase-lock loops can degrade. Performance is improved with a phase-lock loop that processes a combination of individual channel control signals and common control signals. The common control signals are generated by a common coordinate-quartz loop discriminator that processes signals generated from the entire group of navigation signals received by the navigation receiver.

The invention relates to medicine, and more particularly to methods for diagnosing the degree of renal damage in the case of nephrotic syndrome, and can be used in clinical medicine, particularly nephrology. The claimed method includes sampling biological material and then recording diagnostically significant indicators, wherein cystatin C is used as a diagnostically significant indicator of cyclosporine A nephrotoxicity in patients receiving cyclosporine A in a therapeutic dose of 3-5 mg/kg of weight. The serum level of cystatin C is measured at 12-18 months after the first administration of the drug, and if the cystatin C level is 0.75-1.21 mg/l, which is within the norm, treatment is continued at the same therapeutic dose; the cystatin C level is then re-measured at 20-28 months after commencement of treatment with cyclosporine A, and if the cystatin C level exceeds 1.21 mg/l, cylosporine A is deemed to be nephrotoxic and the dose is reduced to 2.0-2.5 mg/kg of weight. It has been proven that cystatin C levels can serve as a marker for the assessment of cyclosporine A nephrotoxicity in children with nephrotic syndrome.

The technical result of the invention is to provide increased functional possibilities by the formation of part of a slab for the cantilevers of balconies and bay windows, and to permit the accommodation of ventilation and plumbing equipment in openings formed in the slab by means of increasing the load-bearing capacity of a slab. The slab comprises a concrete body divided by a series of longitudinal voids having partitions. Two of said partitions are inter-void reinforcements and comprise main longitudinal rods and also reinforcing members which are connected by fastening means to an upper rod and a lower rod. The cross-sectional thickness of the partition of each reinforcement is 3-6 times the cross-sectional thickness of the other partitions, and the inter-void reinforcements are spaced apart from one another and from the side walls of the slab by a distance which permits the accommodation therebetween of transverse through apertures for plumbing and ventilation equipment and, in the case of a cantilevered balcony slab, openings for insulation in the region where wall panels are mounted. The reinforcing members are in the form of a steel plate or a welded reinforcement and are disposed in the end regions of the slab and/or in the regions where the cantilevers of the slab are supported. Additional rods are disposed on two sides of the main reinforcing rods and in the longitudinal ribs of the slab.

A manoeuvring ship propulsion system comprises: one channel having a water collector, a water outlet, one working area in which an impeller is arranged, as well as a distributing mechanism arranged around the working zone. The water collector and the water outlet are formed so as to perform the role of inlet and outlet for a flow of water depending on the direction of motion of the ship. The channel at the inlet to the distributing mechanism is divided into at least two main pipelines, which enter the working zone of the impeller tangentially, and at the outlet of the working zone, the main pipelines are combined again tangentially to form a channel. What is achieved is: a rapid change in direction of motion of a ship, an increase in the manoeuvrability of a ship, and a decrease in the braking distance when performing emergency braking.
