  • Patent number: 10809276
    Abstract: A system includes a probe, a transducer, and a sealing feature. The probe is detachable and includes a first gas path extending from a head to a mount. The transducer is configured to mate with the mount and includes a second gas path with an inlet configured to be in fluid communication with the outlet of the first gas path when the transducer is mated with the mount and at least one sensor disposed along the second gas path. The sealing feature includes a first membrane configured to allow pressure to be conveyed from the first gas path to the second gas path when the transducer is mated with the mount while preventing contaminants from entering the second gas path when the transducer is distant from the probe.

  • Patent number: 10739372
    Abstract: A system includes a probe and a transducer. The probe is detachable and includes a mount having an outlet of a first gas path extending through the probe and a protrusion extending away from the mount. The transducer is configured to mate with the mount and includes a sealing feature adjacent an inlet of the second gas path in fluid communication with the first gas path. When the mount of the probe is adjacent the transducer, the protrusion interacts with the sealing feature such that the sealing feature is in an open position to allow air to flow from the first gas path into the second gas path. When the mount of the probe is distant from the transducer, the sealing feature is in a closed position to prevent contaminants from entering the second gas path.

  • Patent number: 10650157
    Abstract: Facilities are provided to secure guest runtime environments (GREs). Security policy specifications may be associated with GREs. A GRE's security policy may be specific to the GRE and may also include security policy inherited from higher levels such as a host operating environment. The security policy of a GRE specifies restrictions and/or permissions for activities that may be performed within the scope of execution of the GRE. A GRE's security policy may limit what the GRE's guest software may do within the GRE. Restrictions/permissions may be applied to objects such as files, configuration data, and the like. Security specifications may be applied to execution initiated within a GRE. A GRE's security specification may restrict/permit executable objects from loading and executing within the GRE. The executability or accessibility of objects may be conditioned on factors such as the health/integrity of the GRE, the host system, requested files, and others.

  • Publication number: 20200057091
    Abstract: An aircraft probe includes a base, a strut that extends from the base, at least one port, and an electronics assembly insertable into the strut and removable from the strut. The electronics assembly includes at least one pressure sensor that is pneumatically connected to the at least one port to sense a first pressure when in the inserted position.

  • Publication number: 20190383640
    Abstract: A device for use in a leak check test of an air data system includes a device body, an opening extending into the device body with the opening being configured to allow a probe to be at least partially inserted into the opening, and walls surrounding the opening with the walls being situated to seal a port in the probe such that air is prevented from flowing into or out of the port while the probe is inserted into the opening. A method of performing a leak check test includes covering the port with the device to seal the port, heating air within a gas path in the air data system, measuring the change in pressure of the air resulting from an increase in temperature of the air, and determining whether the air data system is sealed depending on the change in pressure of the air.

  • Publication number: 20190333128
    Abstract: Embodiments of a system as described herein may receive financial institution product information from a plurality of financial institutions distributed across a computing network. The system may also receive data from the plurality of financial institutions distributed across the computer network and create or update an ontology. A relevance score may be generated for a set of financial institution products which may, in conjunction with a campaign definition provided by a financial institution administrator, be used to associate users with a list of campaigns which may be stored as campaign data. An online banking application at a user device may request campaign data for a user. In response, the system may return campaign data for the user to the online banking application. Using the campaign data, the online banking application may select one or more products to recommend to the user and display content for the selected products on the user device.
