  • Publication number: 20180275980
    Abstract: Variety of approaches to optimize a feature deployment based on an usage pattern are described. A hosted service initiates operations to optimize the feature deployment upon detecting a feature update associated with an application. Next, a target audience for the feature update is identified by processing an usage pattern signal of the application based On information update and an organizational rule associated with the feature update.

  • Patent number: 8442706
    Abstract: A system and method to facilitate approach of a VTOL aircraft to an offshore facility includes inputting a waypoint for a landing platform of an offshore facility into an aircraft module, inputting an offset distance from the landing platform into the aircraft module, inputting a minimum descent height into an aircraft module, and inputting a final approach inbound course toward the landing platform into the aircraft module.

  • Patent number: 6695264
    Abstract: The present invention is a power lever tactile cueing system for providing tactile alerts to pilots as operational limits of an aircraft are approached. The cueing system generates a tactile cue comprising a variable dive rate and a variable friction force on a power lever of an aircraft. The cueing system provides spring-like tactile cues when power commands reach a predetermined operating limit, without the use of mechanical springs. The cueing system trims down the power lever position and provides the additional friction force based upon aircraft and engine state. The cueing system remains activated until the aircraft is again operated within its operational limits. The pilot may override the cueing system in certain situations.
