  • Patent number: 11111740
    Abstract: A downhole system includes a first tubular having a terminal end including a first connector portion, an inlet, an inner surface, an outer surface, and a first conduit extending between the inner surface and the outer surface fluidically exposed at the terminal end. A second tubular including a terminal end section having a second connector portion coupled to the first connector portion to form a joint, an inner surface section, an outer surface section, and a second conduit extending between the inner surface section and the outer surface section and fluidically exposed at the terminal end section. The first conduit is fluidically connected to the second conduit across the joint.

  • Patent number: 9410934
    Abstract: Methods of identifying geological materials of interest comprising (i) providing a nanoprobe composition comprising one or more nanoprobes; wherein the nanoprobe includes (a) at least one tag; and (b) at least one signal generator; (ii) introducing the nanoprobes to a geological material; and (iii) detecting the presence of a signal generated by the signal generator on association of the tag with a target. Nanoprobe compositions identify geological materials, systems include such nanoprobe compositions, and methods use such nanoprobe compositions for the evaluation of geological materials.

  • Publication number: 20090028379
    Abstract: A system and method for identifying, test firing, marking, and imaging firearm cartridge cases and firearms for use by firearm manufactures. The system and method includes five subsystems, which work in the following sequence: a firearm serial number recognition sub-system; a cartridge case recovery sub-system; a cartridge case sorting sub-system; a cartridge case marking sub-system; and an image acquisition sub-system (108). The firearm serial number recognition sub-system (130) reads the serial number of a firearm and stores it in a database. The cartridge case recovery sub-system recovers fired cartridge cases and transports them to the sorting sub-system. The cartridge case sorting sub-system identifies the orientation of the cartridge cases and reorients them, if necessary, for marking. The cartridge case marking sub-system stamps the firearm serial numbers on the cartridge cases. The serial number is encrypted in a 2D matrix (barcode) form on the casings.

  • Patent number: 3957575
    Abstract: In a light water reactor system using the thorium-232 -- uranium-233 fuel system in a seed-blanket modular core configuration having the modules arranged in a symmetrical array surrounded by a reflector blanket region, the seed regions are disposed for a longitudinal movement between the fixed or stationary blanket region which surrounds each seed region. Control of the reactor is obtained by moving the inner seed region thus changing the geometry of the reactor, and thereby changing the leakage of neutrons from the relatively small seed region into the blanket region.
