  • Publication number: 20240190278
    Abstract: Battery powered quadrotors or drones have a limited operation time. To extend operation time, a powered tether can be used. This tether provides power to the drone allowing it to stay up indefinitely. Most tethered drones are captured to the base station. The tether can reel in and out as the drone moves, but the drone can't go higher or further than the maximum length of the tether. If the tether can be automatically disconnected, the drone could fly off for some remote mission, assuming the drone had an onboard power source such as rechargeable batteries. The present invention relates to a self-powered drone tether that comprises a rechargeable drone in flight which is referred to as the rechargeable drone, a drone that carries a powered tether which is referred to as the tether drone, a coupling mechanism between the rechargeable drone and the tether drone, and a base station with a powered tether and tether deployment system.

  • Patent number: 11982746
    Abstract: A system and method for maintaining a laser impinging on a laser detector assembly includes determining a location of the laser from a rotating laser transmitter impinging on a laser sensor. A current position of the laser sensor along a mast of the laser detector assembly is determined and a new position for the laser sensor along the mast is determined based on the location of the laser impinging on the laser sensor and a current position of the laser sensor. The laser sensor is then moved to the new position. The system and method provide an effectively long working range of the laser detector assembly by moving the laser sensor along the mast of the laser detector assembly. An inertial measurement unit is used to calculate position information in the period between laser strikes.

  • Publication number: 20240117230
    Abstract: Adhesives comprising a silyl-terminated polyether and a tackifying resin provide a considerably reduced tack at relatively slight increases in temperature, undergo purely adhesive failure at such increased temperatures, and have reversible properties (i.e., such properties are substantially retained upon cooling). Such adhesives may be used to reversibly bond a first substrate surface coated with the adhesive to a second substrate surface by adhering the substrate surfaces together at a first temperature; heating the adhesive to a second temperature at least about 20° C. above the first temperature and below the thermal degradation temperature; and separating the substrate surfaces from one another at the second temperature, wherein the adhesive comprises the cured product of a silyl-terminated polyether and a tackifier. Such adhesives may also be cleanly transferred from to a different substrate at such elevated temperatures.

  • Publication number: 20240104193
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products for direct assignment of physical devices to confidential virtual machines (VMs). At a first guest privilege context of a guest partition, a direct assignment of a physical device associated with a host computer system to the guest partition is identified. The guest partition includes the first guest privilege context and a second guest privilege context, which is restricted from accessing memory associated with the first guest privilege context. The guest partition corresponds to a confidential VM, such that a memory region associated with the guest partition is inaccessible to a host operating system. It is determined, based on a policy, that the physical device is allowed to be directly assigned to the guest partition. Communication between the physical device and the second guest privilege context is permitted, such as by exposing the physical device on a virtual bus and/or forwarding an interrupt.
