  • Publication number: 20190217947
    Abstract: A cockpit control system and method for efficiently controlling ground travel in an aircraft equipped with engine-free electric taxi drive systems are provided. The cockpit control system is configured with a display that provides a maximum amount of information during aircraft ground movement with a minimal amount of input from and distraction to pilots or cockpit crew to facilitate essentially hands free operation and control of aircraft ground travel. System test and drive procedures ensure safe aircraft ground travel with the engine-free electric taxi system. Constant pilot hand or other input is not required to achieve safe and maximally efficient aircraft ground travel powered by the aircraft's engine-free electric taxi drive systems or, under selected defined conditions, by the aircraft's engines to achieve this maximum efficiency. The system may further be designed to be uninterruptible by unauthorized persons.

  • Publication number: 20190215311
    Abstract: A business application may provide a secure ledger update while maintaining anonymity and security from unauthorized third parties. One example may include receiving a new entry transaction to save data in a database/ledger. The example may also include receiving a request to add a record stored in a database with a new entry, adding the record by inserting the new entry, and enabling the new entry to be unchangeable from subsequent modification attempts based on an immutable attribute.

  • Patent number: 9107057
    Abstract: In locating a transmitter, a central processor calculates a matched filter detector output for each of one or more candidate transmitter locations by applying a linear filter to low frequency magnetic field measurements obtained at a plurality of receiver locations. The central processor then determines the location of the transmitter based on the one or more calculated matched filter detector outputs. The linear filter is derived for the one or more candidate transmitter locations.

  • Publication number: 20100160537
    Abstract: The present invention provides for a sealer/primer that is generally cured at low bake temperatures. The composition utilizes a resin system to provide both conductivity and adhesion of the coating onto plastic substrates. The present invention uses a polyester, such as one that includes unsaturated polyester, in combination with other resins, including an acrylic, crosslinking agent and conductive pigment to create a conductive primer that can be cured at low temperatures. The composition can be applied through traditional application equipment, seals the surface of the substrate to which it is applied, and cures to an acceptable surface for further processing, such as painting.
