Subsequence of Thue-Morse sequence

The Thue-Morse sequence {Tn} is a binary sequence satisfying:

• T0 = 0
• T2n = Tn
• T2n+1 = 1 - Tn

The first several terms of {Tn} are given as follows:
01101001100101101001011001101001….

We define {An} as the sorted sequence of integers such that the binary expression of each element appears as a subsequence in {Tn}.
For example, the decimal number 18 is expressed as 10010 in binary. 10010 appears in {Tn} (T8 to T12), so 18 is an element of {An}.
The decimal number 14 is expressed as 1110 in binary. 1110 never appears in {Tn}, so 14 is not an element of {An}.

The first several terms of An are given as follows:

n 10 11 12
$A_n$ 10 11 12 13 18

We can also verify that A100 = 3251 and A1000 = 80852364498.

Find the last 9 digits of $\sum_{k=1}^{18}A_{10^k}$.

• T0 = 0
• T2n = Tn
• T2n+1 = 1 - Tn

{Tn}的前几项如下所示：
