  • Patent number: 10803193
    Abstract: A data management and storage (DMS) duster of peer DMS nodes manages resources of a multi-tenant environment. The DMS cluster provides an authorization framework that provides user access which is scoped to the resources within a tenant organization and the privileges of the user within the organization. To authorize an action on a resource by a user, the DMS cluster determines determine user authorizations associated with the user defining privileges of the user on the resources of the multi-tenant environment, and organization authorizations associated defining resources of the multi-tenant environment that belong to the organization. The DMS cluster authorizes the action when the user authorizations and organizations authorized indicate that the action on the resource is authorized.

  • Patent number: 10796508
    Abstract: Devices and methods for providing a retrievable record of the times of the actual aircraft movements such as the Gate Out time when the aircraft leaves the gate or parking position, the Wheels Off time when the aircraft takes off, the Wheels On time when the aircraft touches down during landing, and the Gate In time when the aircraft arrives at the gate or parking position (OOOI times). A mobile device for logging data onboard an aircraft comprises: a motion sensor; a clock; a non-transitory tangible computer-readable storage medium for storing motion data from the motion sensor and associated time data from the clock; and a data processing system configured to identify stored motion data representing respective acceleration/deceleration vectors of the mobile device motions that correspond to aircraft gate departure and arrival and aircraft takeoff and landing. The OOOI times are automatically logged in the non-transitory tangible computer-readable storage medium.

  • Patent number: 10780289
    Abstract: A control system for delivering energy waveform radiation to influence in vivo tissue is described. For the system, the energy waveform radiation is generated by a radiation unit and is directed along a pathway to the tissue and a registration unit is provided to identify a start place relative to the in vivo tissue. Also, a monitor is provided to compare the start place with a base reference to measure an error signal between the start place and base reference. With this measured error signal, a controller operates the radiation unit using input from the monitor to effectively attain and maintain a zero error signal. More specifically, the controller can provide operational parameter inputs to the radiation unit for configuring the waveform radiation including a radiation frequency, f, and a volume intensity level, v, for the radiation and an exposure time interval, ti.

  • Patent number: 10781726
    Abstract: An internal combustion engine includes a cam-actuated rocker arm assembly with a solenoid-actuated latch that provides for cylinder deactivation or variable valve actuation. The solenoid has an inductance that varies significantly in relation to the position of a latch pin as it translates between latching and non-latching configurations. A sensor is positioned to monitor a current or a voltage in a circuit that includes the solenoid. Diagnostic information relating to the operation of the rocker arm assembly is determined by comparing data collected from the sensor over a first period to data collected from the sensor over a second period.
