For example, the rise time may emulate that of an impulse created during an explosion by a resultant pressure wave, i.e., less than 100 microseconds. Embodiments also incorporate a data acquisition capability that accurately captures and records both the supplied impulse and the response of the sensor under test. Serial No.: 10/991,219. Date: 11/18/2004. 18. Title: A barrier to fluid passage is embedded within, instead of atop, porous material to retain the durability of the surface of the porous material. In one embodiment, a thin set mortar is applied to a concrete slab. A pleated metal foil is pressed into the wet mortar and a bond is established. The mortar is allowed to set and a top, or finish, section of concrete is then poured over the foil and finished conventionally. Provisions are made for sealing expansion joints in concrete slab floors and at the juncture of floor and wall. The foil may be provided in multiple layers to provide a mechanical bond via the concrete or mortar oozing through perforations or along pleats in each of the top and bottom layers of the multilayer foil, while providing at least one solid layer through which a fluid will not pass, at least in one direction. Serial No.: 10/715,430. Date: 11/19/2003. 19. Title: A method, and a compound for facilitating it, that enchances night vision by dispersing a luminescent to provide low-intensity area illumination. Luminescents may include naturally occurring bioluminescents (visible spectrum) or man-made, preferably nontoxic, chemical-based luminescents (also termed chemiluminescents), the latter available for use in either the visible or IR spectrum. It may be applied locally to a surface or remotely by means of a delivery system. Preferably, select luminescents are dispersed as an aerosal to contact targeted surfaces. These luminescents may be used in spaces otherwise difficult to image with night vision equipment. Specifically provided is a method for viewing a target under low ambient light conditions comprising dispersing a luminescent material on surfaces in a dark space to provide a low-level, spatially broad, source of supplemental scene illumination, and viewing the target with image enhancing devices that are otherwise marginally useful without the presence of the luminescent material. Serial No.: 11/086,311. Date: 03/23/2005. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:50 Oct 18, 2005 Jkt 208001 20. Title: An ‘‘implant and forget’’ device for interacting with biota after a pre-established time period. Preferably, the biota are fauna and more particularly fish. In select embodiments, the device comprises packaging enclosing means for timing interaction via opening the packaging. In select embodiments of the present invention, the device is a sealed capsule inserted in fish. Embodiments of the present invention are implanted in triploid grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) to facilitate control of aquatic weeds in bodies of water. When the carp have been in the water for a pre-established approximate period of time, toxins in the device are dispensed via long-term bioerosion of the sealed opening in the packaging. Otherwise, the carp may destroy all vegetation and harm the aquatic environment for other aquatic life. Several alternative bioerodible seal configurations are provided as embodiments.
