  • Patent number: 10444257
    Abstract: A high-precision magnetic suspension accelerometer for measuring the linear acceleration of a spacecraft is provided, comprising a magnetically shielded vacuum chamber system, a magnetic displacement sensing system, a magnetic suspension control system and a small magnetic proof mass. A optical coherence displacement detection technique is utilized for precisely measuring the position and the posture of the small magnetic proof mass in real time, and a magnetic suspension control technique is utilized for precisely controlling the position and the posture of the small magnetic proof mass to be brought back to the origin, so as to keep the small magnetic proof mass in the center of the systemic inner chamber. When the spacecraft is subject to a non-conservative force, the magnitude and direction of the acceleration can be precisely measured via the measurement of currents in the position control coils due to the acceleration of the spacecraft proportional to the currents of the position control coils.

  • Publication number: 20190212866
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus and a method for switching touch modes thereof are provided. A touch screen of the electronic apparatus has a plurality of touch modes. A current touch mode of the touch screen is one of the plurality of touch modes. The method includes the following steps. Firstly, the number of times a key module of the electronic apparatus is pressed is determined according to a pulse count of a trigger signal provided by the key module. Next, a first touch mode of the plurality of touch modes is looked up in a lookup table according to the number of times. Afterwards, the current touch mode of the touch screen is switched to the first touch mode.

  • Patent number: 10341465
    Abstract: A hosted service may include multiple applications and have a large number of active features, each in varying stages of deployment, that are gradually rolled out in one or more deployment environments. The hosted service may include a flight state machine, which may provide policy based flight management for feature rollout. For example, in response to receipt of a flight request associated with a feature of the hosted service, the flight state machine may be configured to retrieve a policy associated with rollout of the feature, determine a flight state, and determine a deployment state of the feature. The flight state machine may then be configured to initiate or continue deployment of the feature in a current deployment environment or initiate deployment of the feature in a next environment based on the policy, the flight state, and the deployment state of the feature.

  • Patent number: 10185549
    Abstract: Technologies are described for updating a live system with static changes. According to some examples, changes such as installing and/or removing features may be applied to a cloud based service in live environment without disrupting the service. New software may be patched and installed on an upgraded machine (i.e., server). New features, diagnostics, and language packs may be added. Existing features and certificates may be removed. To accomplish these, new software to be installed and existing software to be removed may be detected. Removal and additions may be performed without preparation and activation of replacement farms.

  • Publication number: 20180062918
    Abstract: Various systems and methods for flight delivery are disclosed herein. In one example, a system includes a processor to process a flight configuration delivery service instruction to schedule the flight by sending the flight to a service bus based on an identification of a temperature of the farm. The system may also include the service bus to alert the farm of the flight for the farm to consume, wherein the service bus returns a notification to the flight configuration deliver service for a farm that does not consume the flight. In an example, a memory stores, based on instructions from the flight configuration delivery service, an identification of the farm that did not consume the flight in the memory.

  • Patent number: 9442715
    Abstract: A cyclical patching process associated with a cloud application may be defined to ensure high availability (HA) of the cloud application in order to prevent impacting an availability to end users. A list of server identities corresponding to one or more servers of a datacenter hosting the cloud application may be accepted. HA metric values for each of the server identities may be determined in order to compute an overall HA metric value for the cloud application. A subset of the servers may be removed from a rotation framework of the cloud application based on the determined HA metric values, where the removal does not affect the overall HA metric value of the cloud application. One or more patches may be applied to each server within the subset of servers in parallel, and the subset of servers may be reinstated in the rotation framework of the cloud application.

  • Patent number: 8721842
    Abstract: A catalytic reaction-rectification integrated process and a catalytic reaction-rectification integrated column, and the specialized device of such process is provided. The reactants are preheated and mixed with catalysts, and then fed into a jet agitation reaction section located in the middle of the catalytic reaction-rectification integrated column from a feeding inlet. The jet agitation reaction section is a kettle-like reactor located in the middle of the catalytic reaction-rectification integrated column. After pressurized by a centrifugal pump, the reactant materials are admitted into a subsonic or transonic agitator located within the reaction section. The reactant materials are ejected into the jet agitation reaction section at high speed, to efficiently mix the solid and liquid phases in the reaction section and to reinforce heat and mass transfer efficiency during the reaction. The liquid reaction mixture is separated and purified directly in the catalytic reaction-rectification integrated column.
