  • Patent number: 11922820
    Abstract: A communication system includes a traffic relay (TR) device for locating unmanned traffic in a controlled airspace. The TR device comprises one or more processors configured to perform the step of receive a status message from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The status message provides identification and location information of the UAV. The one or more processors are also configured to perform the step of generate a warning message for communication to at least one manned aerial vehicle (MAV) or a manned traffic manager (MTM) device that is communicatively connected to the at least one MAV. The warning message is based on a comparison of the location of the UAV to a designated airspace.

  • Patent number: 11370383
    Abstract: A vehicle curtain airbag apparatus includes an inflator and an airbag. The airbag includes an airbag body, an inner tube, and a pocket portion. The inner tube includes a tube body and an insertion portion. The pocket portion is provided in a front end portion of the tube body in an insertion direction of the inner tube. A front end portion of the pocket portion in the insertion direction is joined to the tube body at a first joint portion, which extends in an intersecting direction. The intersecting direction intersects the insertion direction. At least one of the opposite end portions of the pocket portion in the intersecting direction is joined to the tube body at a second joint portion that extends in the insertion direction.

  • Patent number: 9178897
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for use in identifying cyber-security threats for an aircraft are provided. The method includes storing parts information relating to each hardware and software component used on the aircraft in an aircraft parts database, receiving, by a computing device, a cyber-security threat, and determining, by the computing device, a threat is relevant to the aircraft by comparing the received threats to the stored parts information.

  • Patent number: 9171167
    Abstract: Methods and systems for use in in analyzing cyber-security threats for an aircraft are described herein. One example method includes generating an interconnection graph for a plurality of interconnected aircraft systems. The interconnection graph includes a plurality of nodes and a plurality of links. The method also includes defining a cost function for a cyber-security threat to traverse each link and defining a requirements function for a cyber-security threat to exploit each node. The method further includes generating a set of threat traversal graphs for each cyber-security threat of a plurality of cyber-security threats.

  • Patent number: 7657872
    Abstract: An Internet-based, secure communications system is utilized for enabling communications between a video game tester, project coordinator and others with a game developer. A master bug log which compiles all uncovered bugs is accessible by a game developer and other authorized system users via a web server, which stores bug tracking system applications programs and associated data bases. Such a master bug log includes a file attachment capability permitting a digitized image file replicating a video game display screen sequence depicting the bug, to be attached for downloading to, for example, a game developer. Bugs may be sorted, for example, so that a game developer can retrieve only those bugs having a digitized file attachment. Game and debugging related messages may be exchanged between testers, project coordinators, and corporate contacts.

  • Publication number: 20060294193
    Abstract: A system, method and data structures for transmitting batched data over a network in asynchronous, non-blocking operations, with acknowledgements returned to the senders. Each machine includes a sender subsystem and a receiver subsystem. Transmission items corresponding to data to be sent are buffered until a send is triggered, at which time the transmission items are sorted according to their destinations and sent as a GUID-identified batch to each destination by a send thread. At each receiver, a receiving thread adds descriptions of the data to a receive list, which a transfer thread processes when triggered. The transfer thread sends the corresponding data to a recipient program, and sends GUID-identified acknowledgements corresponding to each GUID back to the originating senders. An acknowledge thread at each originating sender buffers the acknowledgements, and when triggered, a cleanup thread uses the GUID to identify which batched transmissions were received.
