  • Patent number: 10386160
    Abstract: A modular illumination and aiming apparatus, a preferred embodiment of which includes an optical head module, mounting module, and an end cap module. The modular illumination and aiming apparatus is configured to be quickly and intuitively adjusted by a user in response to changing target and environmental conditions. The modular illumination and aiming apparatus is configured to be ergonomically supportive such that a user may maintain a consistent firing grip while activating the illumination and aiming functions. The optical head module is configured to allow the user to change radiation types by adjusting a cap. The alignment mechanism in the optical head module for the radiation source and optics is configured to provide a robust and zero-play optical mount in order to resist recoil and general physical shock.

  • Publication number: 20190226511
    Abstract: An inner housing defines a pin retaining receptacle elongated in an X-direction with entry ramps extending parallel to the X-direction. The inner housing is slidably coupled to an outer housing and extends into an interior thereof. A plurality of centering blades extend into the interior and between the inner and outer housings to locate the pin retaining receptacle in a central position within the interior in a Y-direction prior to insertion of the pin into the pin retention receptacle. The centering blades are movable in the Y-direction to permit the pin retaining receptacle of the inner housing to move to a non-central position relative to the housing in the Y-direction as a result of the inner housing moving the centering blades in response to the pin engaging the entry ramps during insertion of the pin into the pin receiving receptacle. Associated methods are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190180043
    Abstract: A system for applying access permissions to read requests may write a file to a storage media. The file may contain data, an embedded flag, and an embedded verification datum of the embedded flag. The embedded flag may indicate an access permissions requisite for file access. The system may also receive a request to access the file from a user and retrieve an access permission for the user. The system may also compare the embedded flag to the access permission for the user to determine the user has permission to access the file. A verification datum may be calculated, and the calculated verification datum may be compared to the embedded verification datum to determine the embedded flag has not changed.

  • Publication number: 20190160540
    Abstract: Examples for refining the microstructure of metallic materials used for additive manufacturing are described herein. An example can involve generating a first layer of an integral object by heating a metallic material to a molten state such that the metallic material includes a solid-liquid interface. The example can further involve applying an electromagnetic field or vibrations to the metallic material of the first layer. In some instances, the electromagnetic fields or vibrations perturb the first layer of metallic material causing nucleation sites to form at the solid-liquid interface of the metallic material in the molten state. The example also includes generating a second layer coupled to the first layer of the integral object. Generating the second layer increases a number of nucleation sites at the solid-liquid interface of the metallic material in the molten state. Each nucleation site can grows a crystal at a spatially-random orientation.

  • Publication number: 20190160589
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to techniques for refining the microstructure of metallic materials used for additive manufacturing. An example can involve generating a first layer of an integral object using a material with grains structured in a first arrangement. After a threshold duration occurs since generating the first layer, the example can involve applying an external force to the first layer to cause deformations in the first arrangement of grains. The example can further involve generating a second layer coupled to the first layer of the integral object to form a portion of the integral object. Generating the second layer of the integral object causes the material of the first layer to recrystallize new grains to replace grains proximate the deformations. The grains that result from recrystallization are structured in new arrangement that improves the physical and mechanical properties of the layer and subsequent layers collective.

  • Patent number: 10070165
    Abstract: A system and method for determining entitlement to content residing on a server. A subscriber account with a multi-channel video program distributor (MVPD) includes subscription information indicative of the services provided by the MVPD to the subscriber. A computing device operated by the subscriber sends a request for access to content controlled by the MVPD. The request is received by the MVPD and forwarded to an entitlements server. The entitlement server sends an access granted message to the MVPD when the subscriber is entitled to receive the requested content. The IP address of the subscriber computing device is used to determine whether the computing device is connected to the network via a network access device authorized by the MVPD. The “on-net” or “off-net” status of the computing device may be used to determine whether the subscriber receives the requested content and/or a quality of service level applied to the content.

  • Publication number: 20180191759
    Abstract: A system for monitoring data-access behavior is provided. The system may derive a behavioral pattern based on at least one of historic data access by a user or expected data access by the user. The system may also generate a behavioral model for the user based on the behavioral pattern for the user. In response to detecting a data access activity by the user, the system may compare the data access activity to the behavioral model to determine the data access activity is unusual for the user. The system may further trigger a remediation action in response to determining the data access activity is unusual for the user.

  • Publication number: 20170331909
    Abstract: A system and method for tracking and interactively displaying the distribution of online source content, comprises a computer having one or more physical processors for tracking a unique online source content item, aggregating and processing data associated with the dissemination of unique online source content, and displaying aggregated processed data representing the dissemination of unique online source content and its associated influencers. In a system and method of the present invention, the top influencers are shown as nodes of varying sizes, wherein the size is a function of how many times that influencer disseminated the source content and wherein when a user clicks on a node in the interactive display, information about the influencer is displayed to the user. The interactive display may also contain curved lines representing the paths of dissemination of the source content information and may be color-coded to represent distinct influencer networks.

  • Patent number: 9770096
    Abstract: A portable table includes a table top that can be transformed into a carrying case, with a handle and a lock and can be used as a table by releasing a pair of lock clips and opening the table at its hinges. The carrying case can hold four telescopic legs, in storing slots, and a shelf on other side of the hinges. The telescopic legs can be used in a table by attaching leg nubs to slots for legs underneath the table top. Each telescopic leg nests two extendible leg pieces, held by a top and a bottom leg clamps, for height adjustment. The leg also has a leg cap at the end for providing non-slip surface. A shelf can be strapped to the telescopic legs for storing accessories by opening the two hexagonal pieces of the shelf and attaching the hooks above the top clamp.
