Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Marquardt Mark R’s patent US 5042487 A deals with Examination unit including positionable patient chair, examination device and support system.
An apparatus and method are disclosed medical examination spine of a patient using a non-invasive techniques such as computerized tomography (CT). With this apparatus and method of patient sitting in a generally vertically-oriented seat which is tiltable in a front and rear direction, is pivotable relative to a vertical axis, is vertically movable and stationary to adjustably pressed gravity effect on the patient's back. A pivotable seat back may include controllably applying additional load or back flexion in patients. An annularly-shaped inspection devices, such as CT device, the horitonzally position in a frame support on the patient aligned with a central opening in the device. Dodge will be the position of the patient and oriented horizontally or angularly displaced relative to horizontal for increasing or adjusting the resultant images. The inspection device to be tiltable about a horizontal axis transverse to the direction of tilting the chair. Appropriate mechanisms provided for in the previously described adjustment.

The Thomson Csf patent solves the following problem:

This invention relates to a system for assisting in the movement to move units in group formation. Particularly, this invention relates to a method and apparatus for the management of airline flight (especially helicopters) flying in formation.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Thomson Csf’s patent US 5043903 A deals with System for aiding the movement of moving units in group formation.
A system for assisting in the movement of the transfer units (aircraft like helicopters) when flying in formation. Each unit pass information to all other units that bidirectional communication links were established between all the units in the building. Information indicates the relative position among the units changed by bidirectional communication links so that each unit has a redundant position information about the position of every other unit. Through a process "data fusion" made up of redundant information, each unit to accurately determine the position of each unit in the building. One of the units (the "leader") then transmits "orders" to other units ( "slave"). Each command determines the position of a slave in the building. Use the command passed its leaders, and to use predetermined rules pilotability, every slave and a "pilot order" to conduct himself in a position to command the leader. These piloting orders can be supplied with an autopilot for the automatic control of the building. The distance on the number of the relative position between the base unit will be determined when traveling transmissions bidirectional communication link between the units. The number of directions relative position can be determined based on the observed direction where the transmission of bidirectional communication links began.
