  • Publication number: 20190291354
    Abstract: Presently disclosed systems and methods for depositing a compound into a void in a sandwich panel are configured to reduce the air pressure in and around the void as the compound flows into the void, thereby reducing the amount of air trapped between the compound and the sandwich panel skin within the void during the repair. Systems may include a dispenser for holding the compound, a vacuum canister, and a valve operable to allow the compound to flow from the dispenser, through at least a portion of the vacuum canister, and into the void. After the compound flows into the void, the system is configured to apply ambient air pressure to the compound and the void, before the compound is allowed to harden or cure. Some such systems are pre-filled with the compound, and/or configured to be disposable after a single use.

  • Publication number: 20190280513
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing a wireless charging placement and/or alignment indicator(s) are described. In some embodiments, an Information Handling System (IHS) may include a chassis and a controller coupled to the chassis, the controller configured to: identify a direction of movement between the device and a wireless charger that increases a charging efficiency between the device and the wireless charger; and indicate the direction of movement via a Light-Emitting Diode (LED) disposed on the chassis.

  • Patent number: 10364629
    Abstract: An apparatus that is usable with a well includes a first component and a second component. The first component is adapted to dissolve at a first rate, and the second component is adapted to contact the first component to perform a downhole operation and dissolve at a second rate that is different from the first rate.

  • Patent number: 10316616
    Abstract: A dissolvable bridge plug configured with components for maintaining anchoring and structural integrity for high pressure applications. These components may substantially dissolve to allow for ease of plug removal following such applications. The plug may effectively provide isolation in a cased well for applications generating over about 8,000-10,000 psi. At the same time, by employment of a dissolve period for the noted components, such a plug may be drilled-out in less than about 30 minutes, even where disposed in a lateral leg of the well.

  • Patent number: 9915116
    Abstract: An embodiment may take the form of a method usable with a well including pumping an untethered object into the well to land on a restriction downhole in the well and using the restriction to trigger release of an agent carried by the object into the well. Another embodiment may take the form of an apparatus usable with a well having a solid object adapted to be pumped into the well and an agent to be adapted to be released from the solid object in response to the solid object landing on a restriction in the well.

  • Publication number: 20170259191
    Abstract: Presently disclosed systems and methods for depositing a compound into a void in a sandwich panel or other structure are configured to reduce the air pressure in and around the void as the compound flows into the void, thereby reducing the amount of air trapped between the compound and the sandwich panel skin (under the compound, within the void) during the repair. Additionally or alternatively, presently disclosed systems and methods for deaerating a compound are configured to remove trapped air from the compound prior to use of the compound (e.g., prior to depositing the compound within a void for repairing the void). In some examples, the same system is configured to both deaerate the compound and deposit the deaerated compound to the void, all while in a reduced air pressure environment inside a vacuum chamber.

  • Patent number: 9610917
    Abstract: Disclosed is a restraint system for a vehicle. A crewmember or occupant is interconnected to the restraint system by way of a strap. The strap has two separate and independently operable release mechanisms. The strap permits the occupant to be either manually or automatically released from the associated restraint. The restraint can be mounted within any of a variety of land, sea, air, or space based vehicles. In one non-limiting embodiment, the first release mechanism is automatically activated in response to a triggering event and the second release mechanism is manually activated by the occupant pulling on a lanyard.
