John J Gallagher, Harry Urkowitz: Complementary-sequence pulse radar with matched filtering and Doppler tolerant sidelobe suppression preceding Doppler filtering. Martin Marietta Corporation, W H Meise, C A Nieves, Young, August 8, 1995: US05440311 (122 worldwide citation)

A radar transmits dispersed pulses in which the subpulses are modulated by first and second mutually complementary code sequences, the autocorrelation functions of which are selected so that, in the sum of their autocorrelation functions, the main range lobes add, and the range sidelobes cancel. The ...

Leopold E Pellon: Sigma-delta analog-to-digital converter with filtration having controlled pole-zero locations, and apparatus therefor. Martin Marietta Corporation, W H Meise, C A Nieves, Young, February 21, 1995: US05392042 (89 worldwide citation)

A sigma-delta (.SIGMA..DELTA.) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) accepts band-limited analog signals, and subtracts an analog replica of an output pulse- or amplitude-density modulated (ADM) signal therefrom to produce an error signal. The error signal is processed by an analog filter or resonator w ...

Joseph F Hacke, Lucas J Bazin: Balanced modulator with feedback stabilization of carrier balance. RCA Corporation, E M Whitacre, W H Meise, July 12, 1983: US04393395 (87 worldwide citation)

A balanced modulator or mixer is used for modulating components of a chrominance signal onto a subcarrier to generate double-sideband suppressed-carrier amplitude-modulated signals. The video component is applied to a phase splitter which produces two antiphase baseband video signals, which in turn ...
