  • Patent number: 10292331
    Abstract: A draper belt system is provided that includes a first draper frame pivotally coupled to a second draper frame at a pivot joint. The pivot joint includes a central longitudinal axis about which rotation at the pivot joint occurs. The draper belt system includes a draper belt assembly including a first roller rotatably coupled to the first draper frame, a second roller rotatably coupled to the second draper frame, and a third roller rotatably coupled between the first and second draper frames. The third roller includes a central longitudinal axis about which the third roller rotates.

  • Publication number: 20040078136
    Abstract: A system for generating tailored trajectories for aircraft operating in an airspace includes a trajectory generation program. In operation, the system receives real-time data from various aircraft operating in the airspace and stores the real-time data in a medium accessible to the trajectory generation program. The trajectory generation program accesses the real-time data and flight characteristics data associated with a corresponding aircraft to generate a trajectory for the corresponding aircraft that is at least partially tailored to the real-time data and the flight characteristics data.
