A portion of a spot of laser light reflected from an object being illuminated (OBI) may be defocused to occupy a significant portion such as one-third of the field of view, while another portion remains focused, therefore allowing for quick calculation of the spot centroid. With such a "composite spot", multiple target (OBI) positions may simultaneously be defined in elevation and azimuth with respect to null by analyzing the energy in each quadrant. The X and Y angle information (off null) for multiple targets (OBIs), and their codes may be displayed. For a large, defocused spot, two segmented multi-element detectors may be used, one in front of and the other behind the focal plane to reduce the effects of hot spots in a spot of laser light collected from an object being illuminated." The patent application was filed on July 13, 2010 (12/835,719).

*** Next3D Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 31 -- Next3D, Atlanta, has been assigned a patent (8,451,320) developed by David Michael Cole, Pembroke Pines, Fla., Alan McKay Moss, Signal Mountain, Tenn., and David Roller Jr., Atlanta, for "methods and apparatus for stereoscopic video compression, encoding, transmission, decoding and/or decompression." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods and apparatus for performing stereoscopic image encoding and decoding are described. Left and right eye images are generated. Image difference information is generated, e.g., a set of pixel values resulting from XORing the pixel values of the left and right eye images. One of the left and right eye images is compressed along with the difference map. The compressed image and compressed difference map is stored and/or transmitted. Stereoscopic images are generated by decompressing and using the received compressed image and compressed difference information. Prior to generation of the difference map the left and right eye images may be subject to a transposition operation to minimize the differences between the images and thus the size of the difference map. When transposition is applied, transposition information is stored and communicated in addition to the compressed image data so that the transposition can be reversed during the stereoscopic image generation process." The patent application was filed on Jan. 25, 2010 (12/693,421). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,451,320&OS=8,451,320&RS=8,451,320 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.
