WO/2015/089623 PROCESS EFFICIENT PREPROCESSING FOR AN ENCRYPTION STANDARD||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/CA2013/050969||MCAFEE, INC.||BRUNO, Richard|
A pre-encryption process for symmetric encryption processes that inputs a bit stream into any existing or future encryption standard to increase encryption complexity with a disproportionate increase in processing time. The first encoding step is the two-stage generation of two strong keys based on a seed strong crypto key and known information from the Source Data bit stream. The second step is to split and encode the bit stream based on entropy levels. After entropy coding, the aligned bit streams are multiplexed in a cyclic fashion to generate one resulting bit stream. The third step is to slice the resulting bit stream into blocks, encrypting each block and adding each block to a coded output bit stream. Each new strong crypto key is derived from the previous crypto key and the previous pre-processed bit stream data. The decoding process is provided that is a simplified inverse of the encoding process.

WO/2015/089619 REMOTE ACTIVATION SYSTEM FOR A BREATHING APPARATUS FILLING STATION||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/CA2013/001063||DRAEGER SAFETY CANADA LIMITED||TOELLE, Jonathan George|
A Compressed Air Breathing Apparatus (CABA) or Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) is routinely used in environments when there is no breathable air and in emergency situations. However, CABA/SCBA tanks have limited capacity to hold compressed air, and BA filling stations are required in environments in which it may be necessary to refill the CABA/SCBA tanks during an emergency situation. Disclosed is a BA filling station system with a back-up air supply and remote activation. Two or more filling stations are interconnected by one or more air supply lines to provide a flow of compressed air between the filling stations, and one or more remote activation lines to control the flow. Advantageously, the system provides redundancy between the remotely located BA filling stations and substantially improves safety by making available a back-up source of an air supply from another interconnected filling station.

WO/2015/089665 NUCLEAR REACTOR SHUTDOWN SYSTEM||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051229||HATCH LTD.||SHAW, John Andrew Ferguson|
According to an aspect of the present disclosure, there is provided a nuclear reactor system which includes a core and containment structure. The interior of the containment structure is filled with both a liquid fuel and a gas. The reactor core is located inside the containment structure above the maximum resting level of the liquid fuel. In this condition, the core is filled by the gas, and a sustained fission chain reaction will not take place. A pump is provided draw the liquid fuel from the lower portion of the containment structure and circulates it through the reactor core, where the fuel reacts to produce heat. The reactor sustains a fission chain reaction only when the pump is on, and thus the reactor can be shut-down simply by turning off the pump, and allowing gravity to drain the core of the fuel salt.
