  • Publication number: 20210316873
    Abstract: An aircraft including a nacelle configured as a housing for an engine and disposed at a fixed location relative a wing member; a proprotor housing coupled to the nacelle, the proprotor housing configured to selectively rotate between a horizontal orientation and a non-horizontal orientation; a door hingedly coupled to the proprotor housing by a first hinge joint and hingedly coupled to the nacelle by a second hinge joint. An aspect includes an aircraft with a proprotor coupled to a wing member, the proprotor comprising a forward portion and an aft portion; wherein the forward portion is configured to selectively pivot between a horizontal orientation and a non-horizontal orientation about a conversion axis C; and wherein when the forward portion is in a non-horizontal orientation, the aft portion is in a horizonal orientation.

  • Publication number: 20210294124
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to the use of contact lenses for treating one or more ophthalmologic conditions. In some embodiments, the contact lenses may be used to treat presbyopia, induced myopia, computer vision syndrome (CVS), insufficient accommodation, or a condition associated with insufficient accommodation. The contact lens may include a number of regions having different geometries (e.g., curvature, width, diameter) depending on the flattest keratonomy of the cornea to achieve a suitable fit. For example, the contact lens may include an optic zone surrounded by an inner peripheral region and an outer peripheral region surrounding the inner peripheral region, each exhibiting varying degrees of curvature. The fitted contact lens may be selected based on a measured sagittal depth and/or eccentricity of the cornea. When fitted, an appropriate amount of fluid may accumulate between the cornea of the eye and the contact lens.

  • Patent number: 11032319
    Abstract: The disclosed computer-implemented method for preparing honeypot computer files may include (1) identifying, at a computing device, a search term used by a cyber attacker in an electronic search request, (2) identifying, without regard to a search access restriction, a sensitive computer document in search results stemming from the electronic search request, (3) creating, as a security action in response to the electronic search request, a honeypot computer file based on the sensitive computer document and including the identified search term, and (4) placing the honeypot computer file in the search results. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11006849
    Abstract: Embodiments of devices and methods for evaluating tissue are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method for measuring a characteristic of a tissue may include passing a current through the tissue, measuring a signal corresponding to the voltage resulting from passing the current through the tissue, analyzing current passed through the tissue and resulting voltage to determine the electrical characteristics of the tissue; and analyzing the electrical characteristics of the tissue to determine a status of the tissue. Disposable sensors are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10969609
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to the use of contact lenses for treating ophthalmologic conditions, such as presbyopia, induced myopia, computer vision syndrome, insufficient accommodation, or a condition associated with insufficient accommodation. The contact lens may be selected based on a measured sagittal depth and/or eccentricity of the cornea. When fitted, fluid may accumulate between the cornea of the eye and the contact lens The lens may exhibit a sufficient amount of apical clearance such that when the wearer blinks, the lens moves no more than 1 mm on the eye. The lens and the eye may be structured such that bubbles greater than 0.5 mm in diameter are prevented from forming between the contact lens and the eye. The contact lens may be used in combination with a suitable bioactive agent providing for enhanced visual correction.

  • Patent number: 10829237
    Abstract: An inlet barrier filter system for a tiltrotor aircraft comprising a filter duct extending from a filter to a filter outlet, a ram air duct extending from a ram air inlet to an engine where the filter duct connects to the ram air duct at the filter outlet, and a closure member movable between a first position blocking the ram air duct and a second position blocking the filter outlet. In use, the inlet barrier filter system provides for two mutually exclusive air flow paths, one for introducing ram air to the engine while closing off the filter and another air flow path for introducing filtered air to the engine while closing off the ram air duct.
