AIS Receives New Patent from U.S. Patent Office Expanding its Portfolio to 22 Issued Patents

Assured Information Security (AIS) is pleased to announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company a new patent in 2024, expanding AIS’s intellectual property (IP) and raising its portfolio to 22 issued patents with multiple currently pending.

“Expanding our patent portfolio is pivotal in our mission to introduce groundbreaking technologies to the market,” said Scott Robidoux, Chief Operating Officer at AIS. “This patent introduces an innovative method for determining the location of radio frequency (RF) ’emitters’, including WiFi routers, wireless laptops, walkie-talkies, garage door openers and more. While this may not be a routine concern for the average individual, it poses a significant challenge for law enforcement and investigative agencies. Existing methods for locating emitters require extensive computational resources, often leading to compromises in accuracy due to impractical computing demands. This patent addresses this issue by enhancing emitter localization with optimized resource utilization, facilitating more precise results.”

Patent Details:

U.S. Patent Number: 11,899,122 : GEOLOCATING EMITTERS
Geolocating one or more emitters includes obtaining a set of lines of bearing (LOBs) indicative of location(s) of emitter(s), determining intersections of LOBs of the set and generating clusters informed by those intersections, assigning the LOBs of the set to cluster(s) based on proximity, identifying a cluster having the greatest number of assigned LOBs from the set; determining an emitter location area based on a best point estimate for the cluster, and indicating a location of an emitter as the emitter location area. Additional emitters can be located by removing from the set of LOBs those LOBs assigned to the identified cluster and repeating aforementioned aspects. Initially, the set of LOBs can be selected from a larger collection as a representative subset thereof.

Invention is credited to Jason Eric Smith.
