*** Sirius XM Radio Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 9 -- Sirius XM Radio, New York, has been assigned a patent (8,306,145) developed by Carl Scarpa, Plainsboro, N.J., Edward Schell, Jackson, N.J., and Christopher Strolle, Fort Washington, Pa., for an "overlay modulation of COFDM using phase and amplitude offset carriers." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods are presented for transmitting additional data over preexisting differential COFDM signals by modulating existing data carriers with a phase and an amplitude offset. In exemplary embodiments of the present invention, additional data capacity can be achieved for an COFDM signal which is completely backwards compatible with existing satellite broadcast communications systems. In exemplary embodiments of the present invention additional information can be overlayed on an existing signal as a combination of amplitude and phase offset from the original QPSK symbols, applied for each information bit of the overlay data. With two additional levels of modulation, a receiver can demodulate the information from each of the previous stages and combine the information into a suitable format for soft decoding. The first stage of demodulation will be recovery of overlay data from the amplitude modulated D8PSK. Because other amplitude variations due to multi-path are also expected, the data gathered from the FFT in the receiver must be equalized to the channel conditions. After channel equalization has been performed, soft overlay data can then be derived from the distance off the unit circle. In order to recover the phase modulated overlay data, the equalized symbols must first be differentially demodulated and corrected for any common phase error offset. After common phase removal, overlay phase information can be obtained." The patent application was filed on March 31, 2009 (12/416,027). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,306,145&OS=8,306,145&RS=8,306,145 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
