  • Patent number: 10913542
    Abstract: A wing is provided in one example embodiment and may include an outboard rib; a proprotor gearbox, wherein the proprotor gearbox is located inboard of the outboard rib; a fitting attached to the proprotor gearbox; and a conversion actuator, wherein the conversion actuator is attached to the wing and is mechanically coupled to the fitting. The wing may further include a downstop striker in which the downstop striker may be mounted to the fitting and the downstop striker may be between the proprotor gearbox and the conversion actuator. The wing may further include a downstop mounted on a top side of the outboard rib, wherein the downstop and the downstop striker are aligned to be in contact when the proprotor gearbox is positioned in an airplane mode.

  • Publication number: 20200315166
    Abstract: Composite materials that are palatable to a wood-destroying pest species and also pesticidal to the pest species can be used in pest control devices and can be used as wood substitutes for structural components, which are resistant to destruction by wood-destroying pests. The composite materials include a thermoplastic polymer, a food material for the pest and a pesticide. The composite material is formed by mixing a thermoplastic polymer, wood fragments or other cellulosic materials and a quantity of pesticide, and thereafter creating a molten material within a mixer, compounder, extruder or the like. The molten material is extruded or molded to form the desired shape.

  • Patent number: 10762038
    Abstract: System and method for conversion of virtual machine files without requiring copying of the virtual machine payload (data) from one location to another location. By eliminating this step, applicant's invention significantly enhances the efficiency of the conversion process. In one embodiment, a file system or storage system provides indirections to locations of data elements stored on a persistent storage media. A source virtual machine file includes hypervisor metadata (HM) data elements in one hypervisor file format, and virtual machine payload (VMP) data elements.

  • Patent number: 10255340
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for replicating data structures over a network in which each data structure is assigned an owner node among a plurality of networked peer nodes. Preferably that owner can be ascertained through information in the data structure. When an update to the data structure is desired by a non-owner, a request to modify the data structure is sent out on the network and when received by the owner, the owner performs the modification. The owner node can then notify the other nodes regarding the update. The method, implemented through a single-writer, multiple-reader paradigm, insures availability, partition tolerance and eventual consistency; it avoids the high overhead costs and single point of failure drawbacks of the prior art centralized management and locking protocols. Administrators can connect to any peer node in the network to manage, monitor and request modifications to a data structure.
