  • Patent number: 11905042
    Abstract: A signal associated with a motor is obtained where the motor is included in a aircraft that has flight capabilities. A motor wear metric that represents an amount of wear experienced by the motor is determined based at least in part on the signal. It is determined, at a flight computer that is included in the aircraft, whether to restrict the flight capabilities of the aircraft based at least in part on the motor wear metric. The flight capabilities of the aircraft are restricted in the event it is so determined.

  • Patent number: 11880011
    Abstract: The present method predicts and separates dispersive surface waves from seismic data using dispersion estimation and is completely data-driven and computer automated and no human intervention is needed. The method is capable of predicting and suppressing surface waves from recorded seismic data without damaging the reflections. Nonlinear signal comparison (NLSC) is used to obtain a high resolution and accurate dispersion. Based on the dispersion, surface waves are predicted from the field recorded seismic data. The predicted surface waves are then subtracted from the original data.
