  • Publication number: 20200130794
    Abstract: A marine propulsion system, supported by a strut, comprising an inner propeller shaft supporting a first propeller adjacent a trailing end thereof, and the inner propeller shaft is connected to the drive shaft for receiving and supplying a first portion of torque to the first propeller as well as transfer thrust, generated by the first propeller, along the inner propeller shaft back to the drive shaft. An outer propeller shaft supports a second propeller adjacent a trailing and thereof, and the outer propeller shaft surrounds the inner propeller shaft. A differential gear set receives a second portion of the torque and supplies the second portion to the outer propeller shaft so that the second propeller rotates in an opposite rotational direction to the first propeller. The thrust, generated by the first and the second propellers, is conveyed along either the inner or the outer propeller shafts, to the drive shaft.

  • Publication number: 20190092443
    Abstract: A maritime drift control system comprising a vessel movement detection unit, for detecting an actual vessel speed and direction, and a vessel movement control unit with a drift controller for controlling operation of at least one propulsion device of a vessel. The maritime drift control system comprises a drift error generator for generating drift error signals depending on a predetermined speed limit and the actual vessel speed. The drift error generator is connected to the drift controller to transmit the drift error signals to the drift controller. The drift controller uses the drift error signals to compute and transmit propulsion command signals to the at least one propulsion device in order to reduce speed and alter the direction of the vessel to target values. The invention comprises further a maritime vessel with a corresponding maritime drift control system.

  • Patent number: 9063945
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for copying data are disclosed. A data track to be replicated using a peer-to-peer remote copy (PPRC) operation is identified. The data track is encoded in a non-transitory computer readable medium disposed in a first data storage system. At a first time, a determination of whether the data track is stored in a data cache is made. At a second time, the data track is replicated to a non-transitory computer readable medium disposed in a second data storage system. The second time is later than the first time. If the data track was stored in the data cache at the first time, a cache manager is instructed to not demote the data track from the data cache. If the data track was not stored in the data cache at the first time, the cache manager is instructed that the data track may be demoted.

  • Patent number: 8990263
    Abstract: A method for managing storage functions in a data replication environment is disclosed. In one embodiment, such a method includes continually monitoring for changes to a storage configuration at a secondary site. Upon detecting changes to the storage configuration at the secondary site, the method transmits remote metadata describing the changes to the primary site and stores the remote metadata at the primary site. The method then initiates a storage management function at the primary site which is mirrored to the secondary site. In order to perform the storage management function, the method reads the remote metadata at the primary site to determine the storage configuration at the secondary site. The method then performs the storage management function at the primary site in a way that takes into account the storage configuration at the secondary site. A corresponding apparatus, system, and computer-readable medium are also disclosed and claimed herein.

  • Patent number: 8962250
    Abstract: The invention relates to improved methods of amplifying and optionally quantifying and/or identifying a plurality of selected nucleic acid molecules from a pool of nucleic acid molecules. A first round of multiplex amplification used where the amplification reaction is allowed to proceed to a point prior to that at which significant competition between amplicons for reaction components has occurred. This is the followed by a second round of amplification that typically includes a fluorescent reporter to allow for each of the selected nucleic acid sequences to be quantified. The methods are useful for the amplification and quantification of nucleic acids from a variety of sources, such as gene expression products, whereby many such products may be amplified and quantified from very limited samples and from degraded archival samples.

  • Patent number: 8489129
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for transmitting a text/multimedia message over a bearer interface of a mobile network. A first network element of the mobile network, such as an MSC for a Mobile Terminated (MT) text/multimedia message or a BSS for a Mobile Originated (MO) text/multimedia message, receives a text/multimedia message. The first network element communicates with a second network element of the mobile network using a signaling interface (e.g., an IOS A1 interface) to select a bearer connection on a non-voice circuit-mode bearer interface (e.g., an IOS A5 interface), and routes the text/multimedia message to the second network element over the selected connection on the non-voice circuit-mode bearer interface. The first network element may also select a bearer connection on a voice bearer interface (e.g., an IOS A2 interface) and route the text/multimedia message to the second network element over the selected bearer connection.

  • Patent number: 7930497
    Abstract: Provided are an article of manufacture, method, and system for using multiple sidefiles to buffer writes to primary storage volumes to transfer to corresponding secondary storage volumes in a mirror relationship. Information is provided on a mirror relationship for primary storage volumes and corresponding secondary storage volumes, wherein writes to the primary storage volumes are transferred to the secondary storage volumes according to the mirror relationship. A plurality of sidefiles are associated with the primary storage volumes in the mirror relationship. A write is received to one of the primary storage volumes in the mirror relationship. One of the sidefiles associated with the primary storage volume for which the write is received is selected and the write is buffered in the selected sidefile. Writes to the primary storage volumes buffered in the sidefiles are transferred to the corresponding secondary storage volumes.

  • Patent number: 7716436
    Abstract: A system is disclosed that includes a host system to issue a write command, a primary storage controller to write data to a primary volume, and a secondary storage controller to mirror the data to a secondary volume. In the event the secondary storage controller is unable to mirror the data due to a busy state, a busy signal may be sent to the primary storage controller. The primary storage controller may initiate a timer in the event it receives the busy signal, and, in the event the busy state does not end before expiration of the timer, notify the host system that the primary and secondary volumes are in a suspended state. To alter the duration of the timer, the host system may be configured to dynamically alter the duration of the timer by sending a command to the primary storage controller.

  • Patent number: 7716437
    Abstract: A system is disclosed that includes a host system to issue a write command, a primary storage device to write data to a primary volume, and a secondary storage device to mirror the data to a secondary volume. A task timer may be initiated upon sending the data from the primary storage device to the secondary storage device. The secondary storage device may also send an acknowledge signal to the primary storage device in the event it successfully mirrors the data to the secondary volume. In the event the acknowledge signal is not received before the timer expires, the primary storage device may notify the host system that the primary and secondary volumes are in a suspended state. To alter the duration of the timer, the host system may be further configured to dynamically alter the duration of the timer by sending a command to the primary storage device.
