  • Publication number: 20210288570
    Abstract: A linear electromagnetic machine includes a stator, a translator, and a bearing system. The bearing system maintains alignment against lateral displacement of the translator relative to the stator, as the translator reciprocates axially. More particularly, the bearing system maintains a motor air gap between the stator and a magnetic section of the translator. The stator includes a plurality of stator teeth and windings, which form a plurality of phases. The stator teeth and windings are arranged using a hoop stack with spines to form a stator bore and define the motor air gap. The bearing system can include bearing housings that are configured to form a bearing interface with a surface of the translator. The bearing interface can include a contact bearing or a non-contact bearing, such as a gas bearing. Current is controlled in the phases to convert between electrical energy and kinetic energy of the translator.

  • Patent number: 11121302
    Abstract: A method for bonding two superconducting integrated circuits (“chips”), such that the bonds electrically interconnect the chips. A plurality of indium-coated metallic posts may be deposited on each chip. The indium bumps are aligned and compressed with moderate pressure at a temperature at which the indium is deformable but not molten, forming fully superconducting connections between the two chips when the indium is cooled down to the superconducting state. An anti-diffusion layer may be applied below the indium bumps to block reaction with underlying layers. The method is scalable to a large number of small contacts on the wafer scale, and may be used to manufacture a multi-chip module comprising a plurality of chips on a common carrier. Superconducting classical and quantum computers and superconducting sensor arrays may be packaged.

  • Publication number: 20210266786
    Abstract: A technique for controlling and monitoring packet duplication of at least one packet in a radio transmission from at least one transmitting station (100) to a receiving station (200) is described. As to a method aspect of the technique, a control message (710) that is indicative of the packet duplication in the radio transmission is transmitted to the receiving station (200). The control message (710) controls the receiving station (200) to monitor a reception of duplicates (712) of the at least one packet. Two or more duplicates (712) of the at least one packet are transmitted to the receiving station (200). A control feedback (714) that is indicative of a result of the monitoring is received from the receiving station (200).

  • Publication number: 20210250403
    Abstract: In certain instances, a data management application (software application) that manages moving data files, and the like, from a primary high-speed storage system. An end-user can configure the data management application for particular files via management policies. Based on the management policies, after a file is migrated from the primary storage system to a targeted secondary storage system, a breadcrumb pointing to a webpage for the migrated file is left behind in the primary storage system. The webpage can be used to manage the migrated file, such as moving the migrated file back to the primary storage system.

  • Patent number: 11073369
    Abstract: An article comprising an electronic safe-arm and fire (ESAF) device for a supercavitating cargo round (SCR) includes discrete electronics, a high-voltage capacitor, a high-voltage switch, and an exploding foil initiator. The discrete electronics includes digital-delay timer circuits, discrete logic circuits, accelerometers, and circuitry for enabling the high-voltage switch. In a method for implementing the safe and arm protocols, sensor readings from sensors on a weaponized UUV are obtained and, when certain conditions are achieved, remove inhibit signals are forwarded to a controller onboard the UUV. When such signals are received in a specified order, and within certain optional specified time delays, the controller arms the ESAF within the SCR. After the SCR fire and leaves the barrel on the UUV, the ESAF monitors certain acceleration/deceleration conditions unique to supercavitation, and applies same to determine whether to detonate the SCR's energetic payload.

  • Patent number: 11063777
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed herein for asynchronous distributed editing of a structured document, such as a trouble ticket. A document management service receives edits to the structured document. The edits to the structured document include data to be stored in fields of the structured document and information identifying the fields into which the data in the edits is to be stored. The edits are synchronized to other instances of the document management service. Edits to the structured document made at the other instances of the document management service are also received and stored. When a request is received for the structured document, the edits to the document made at the various instances of the document management service are sorted based upon the order in which they were created. The edits are applied in the sorted order to generate the structured document.

  • Patent number: 11044750
    Abstract: Methods, wireless device (120; 400) and wireless communication network (100), such as a network node (110; 600) thereof, for managing downlink signal information. The downlink signal information being information about signal quality and/or signal strength received by the wireless device (120) in a downlink. The wireless device (120) sends (203; 302), to the wireless communication network (100), a message indicating said obtained downlink signal information and which message is associated with the wireless device (120) requesting access to the wireless communication network (100). The downlink information being indicated in the message by a range that indicates how much the obtained downlink signal information exceeds a certain threshold. The range is determined based on a certain factor that the wireless communication network (100) has informed the wireless device (120) about.
