RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) is a storage architecture that offers data security in case of system failure. A company seeks patented technologies fundamental to the architecture of RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 6, and also in patented technologies that relate to them, such as hot swap, hot spare, RAID level migration, and hierarchical storage management. The company is especially interested in hardware solutions rather than software solutions.
An organization is seeking a method to determine the cloud ceiling height up to at least 3,000 feet, cloud coverage, and visibility up to at least 5 miles using a small, low power automatic sensor. This device would operate periodically to provide cloud and visibility measurements and must operate autonomously in both day and night conditions. The device will ideally be a five-pound, brick-sized item that can easily be transported to a remote location or airstrip, or that can be deployed along air routes not otherwise served by weather offices or weather observers.
