  • Patent number: 10717267
    Abstract: In a method of printing a transferable component, a stamp including an elastomeric post having three-dimensional relief features protruding from a surface thereof is pressed against a component on a donor substrate with a first pressure that is sufficient to mechanically deform the relief features and a region of the post between the relief features to contact the component over a first contact area. The stamp is retracted from the donor substrate such that the component is adhered to the stamp. The stamp including the component adhered thereto is pressed against a receiving substrate with a second pressure that is less than the first pressure to contact the component over a second contact area that is smaller than the first contact area. The stamp is then retracted from the receiving substrate to delaminate the component from the stamp and print the component onto the receiving substrate. Related apparatus and stamps are also discussed.

  • Patent number: 10689281
    Abstract: A mobile processing system is disclosed for the removal of radioactive contaminants from nuclear process waste water. The system is fully scalable, modular, and portable allowing the system to be fully customizable according the site-specific remediation requirements. It is designed to be both transported and operated from standard sized intermodal containers or custom designed enclosures for increased mobility between sites and on-site, further increasing the speed and ease with which the system may be deployed. Additionally, the system is completely modular wherein the various different modules perform different forms or stages of waste water remediation and may be connected in parallel and/or in series. Depending on the needs of the particular site, one or more different processes may be used. In some embodiments, one or more of the same modules may be used in the same operation.

  • Publication number: 20200174110
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for platform intrusion detection. An ultra-wideband (UWB) based platform intrusion detection may include transmitting UWB signals into an area in proximity to a platform, the area that includes one or more tracks; receiving UWB signals within the area; and processing received UWB signals to enable detecting objects within the area. The processing may include identifying received UWB signals corresponding to echoes of the transmitted UWB signal transmitted by the detection devices; detecting based on the echoes of the transmitted UWB signals when an object is present within the area; and assessing the object, wherein assessing the object includes determining when the object represents an intrusion within the area.

  • Patent number: 10628228
    Abstract: Systems for processing requests to use virtual computing resources in communicatively isolated computing environments apply a multi-tier framework for limiting the amount of virtual computing resources that can be allocated to a user in a computing environment. A bottom tier is associated with a user account that has not been analyzed for security risks, a top tier is associated with a user account that has been validated to use a corresponding computing environment; an intermediate tier, having limits between the bottom and top tiers, is applied to computing environments where the user has not requested resources. Initially, all computing environments are on the bottom tier. In response to a valid request for resources, validated computing environments are moved to the top tier and all other computing environments are moved to the intermediate tier. Requests in an intermediate-tier computing environment trigger validity review; the computing environment can move to top tier.

  • Patent number: 10528720
    Abstract: A device may require one or more updates to its software. However, the device may be inaccessible due to a variety of circumstances. Troubleshooting the device may be difficult. Therefore, the device may be configured to automatically run a script after it has been validated to perform one or more functions on the control panel. In one embodiment, a method to automate a script on a device is described. The method may include searching an attached external storage device for a script, identifying a script based at least in part on the searching, validating the authenticity of the identified script, and executing, automatically, the validated script.
