  • Patent number: 11117195
    Abstract: A High Energy Beam Processing (HEBP) system provides feedback signal monitoring and feedback control for the improvement of process repeatability and three-dimensional (3D) printed part quality. Electrons deflected from a substrate in the processing area impinge on a surface of a sensor. The electrons result from the deflection of an electron beam from the substrate. Either one or both of an initial profile of an electron beam and an initial location of the electron beam relative to the substrate are determined based on a feedback electron signal corresponding to the impingement of the electrons on the surface of the sensor. With an appropriate profile and location of the electron beam, the build structure is fabricated on the substrate.

  • Patent number: 11108809
    Abstract: A system for detecting whether a file including content s associated with a cyber-attack is described. The content may include an executable file for example. The system includes an intelligence-driven analysis subsystem and a computation analysis subsystem. The intelligence-driven analysis subsystem is configured to (i) receive the file, (ii) inspect and compute features of the file for indicators associated with a cyber-attack, and (iii) produce a first output representing the detected indicators. The computational analysis subsystem includes an artificial neural network to (i) receive a network input being a first representation of at least one section of binary code from the file as input, and (ii) process the first representation of the section to produce a second output. The first output and the second output are used in determination a classification assigned to the file.

  • Patent number: 11011337
    Abstract: Systems and methods for obtaining fast, spin-polarized electrons from an edge or tip or cusp of a target material, e.g., a sharp GaAs crystal edge or tip, or a cusp, which naturally incorporates optical reversibility. A source of fast spin-polarized electrons may include a target material including a sharp tip or tip portion or a sharp edge or a cusp, the tip or tip portion including at least two intersecting edges, and a pulsed light source configured to emit one or more light pulses focused on the sharp tip or tip portion or the sharp edge or the cusp to thereby induce emission of spin-polarized electrons from the sharp tip or tip portion or the sharp edge or the cusp of the target material.

  • Publication number: 20200377153
    Abstract: A drive unit of a robotic vehicle including a top surface having a mounting interface to interchangeably couple with multiple different modular payload structures configured to transport items in a facility, workspace or inventory management environment. The mounting interface is configured to securely engage with a mounting portion of the variety of different payload structures to enable a versatile exchange of the payload structure for different conveyance applications. The drive unit includes an electrical interface to communicatively couple with the modular payload structures. The drive unit is configured to use data communicated via the electrical coupling and interface to identify a type of modular payload structure that is mechanically coupled to the mounting interface and implement a motion profile (e.g., speed and acceleration parameters) associated with the identified modular payload structure.

  • Publication number: 20200300545
    Abstract: A fluidized bed system is a single unitary modular system that packages a circulation fan, a fluidized bed, and a dust collection system within a same structure. The structure is formed to include internal ducts to provide fluid communication between the circulation fan, the fluidized bed, and the dust collection system. The fan provides a flow of air via a pressure duct to the fluidized bed. Particulate is separated from particles included on the fluidized bed by the flow of air being uniformly distributed to the fluidized bed. Particulate separated in a disengagement area and suspended in the flow of air is conducted through a particulate clearance space surrounding the dust collection system. The particulate is captured by the dust collection system and conveyed to a location external to the system.

  • Publication number: 20200261694
    Abstract: A catheter having a multilumenal tube surrounded by a slotted hypotube is provided. The catheter has a tube holder that houses the multilumenal tubing and slidably engages the hypotube, and has internal passages configured to receive one of more tubes from the multilumenal tube. The multilumenal tubing separates into one or more tubings, each comprising a lumen, such that the tubings exit the tube holder at different locations. The slotted hypotube slidably engages a key in the tube holder that prevents the multilumenal tubing from rotating relative to the tube holder and the one of more tubings that separate from the multilumenal tubing. Advantages provided by the slotted hypotube/tube holder assembly are described.

  • Publication number: 20200215810
    Abstract: A High Energy Beam Processing (HEBP) system provides feedback signal monitoring and feedback control for the improvement of process repeatability and three-dimensional (3D) printed part quality. Signals reflecting process parameters and the quality of the fabricated parts are analyzed by monitoring feedback signals from artifact sources with a process controller which adjusts process parameters. In this manner, fabricated parts are produced more accurately and consistently from powder feedstock by compensating for process variation in response to feedback signals.
