  • Patent number: 10297947
    Abstract: A gas resistant pothead system and method for electric submersible motors. A gas resistant pothead system includes a lead foil wrapped motor lead cable (MLE) extending through a pothead, a sleeve of an insulator block inside the pothead, the sleeve including gold plating and lead-foil wrapping over the gold plating, and a lead-to-gold seal formed between the gold plating of the sleeve and the lead foil wrapping over the gold plating. A method of creating a seal to gas around a power cable connection to a downhole electric submersible motor includes wrapping lead foil around a MLE extending through a pothead, continuing the lead foil wrapping around a gold-plated sleeve of an insulating block inside the pothead, mechanically reinforcing the lead foil with an encapsulant, and bonding the lead foil to the gold plating of the insulating block.

  • Patent number: 10243740
    Abstract: An authentication system that uses a multi-use long string authentication key to authenticate client device access to protected resources, is presented. The authentication system is based on a shared knowledge of long string authentication key. The authentication key is used as a platform to derive digital signatures for access to protected resources. One or more authentication parameters can be used in combination with the authentication key to derive or validate digital signatures. The one or more authentication parameters can include a key index parameter, a key offset parameter, and a key length parameter. The digital signatures derived from authentication keys can be used to control access to various types of protected resources such as, digital house, a vehicle fob key, a remote garage door opener, a hotel room card key, credit or debit cards magnetic strip or chip, online financial accounts, computer or control systems, or website authentication.

  • Publication number: 20180227125
    Abstract: This disclosure describes systems and methods for implementing techniques that use multi-use long string authentication keys to protect the transfer of data resources from a sending device to a recipient device. More specifically, an anti-tampering authentication application is described that may reside on client devices that send and receive data resources. An anti-tampering authentication application, on a sending device, may generate a protected data resource by mathematically coupling an authentication key with a data resource intended for delivery to a recipient device. The anti-tampering authentication application may also generate computational instructions that automatically decouple the protected data resource from the authentication key in response to a successful authentication of an authentication string at the recipient device.

  • Publication number: 20140185255
    Abstract: The power supply and cooling provided by existing aircraft system line replaceable units (LRUs) or other devices supports new cards that are installed in previously empty slots or which replace existing original cards and which are not limited in functionality and do not require licensing of any proprietary technology included in the LRU. These new cards can include components such as processors, memory, and/or storage that significantly improve the performance of the LRU, and/or add new functionality—all without exceeding the power supply and cooling capability of the LRU. A network and avionics bus interface can be added to a portion of the new card and electrically coupled to the circuitry and electronic components on the new card, so that one or more cables connected to the interface can be connected to externally accessible standard avionics buses and network connectors added to a chassis of the LRU.

  • Publication number: 20140075506
    Abstract: A global, broadband communications and computing system Platform for commercial aircraft selects a “current best” communication link from multiple available links. Onboard network access components, such as Wi-Fi and GSM pico-cells, enable wired/wireless devices to use the aircraft's broadband communications links. The Platform uses virtualization and distributed systems computing technology to create a system of systems that extends an airline company's ground communications and computing systems server(s) onboard aircraft in the fleet, regardless of model, age, or manufacturer. The Platform can host airline operational applications and services onboard the aircraft. An onboard system collects data from multiple aircraft systems, tags it with trusted time and origin metadata, and securely transmits it to a ground portion of the Platform in real time (or as links are available), and receives data for distribution to appropriate onboard systems.

  • Publication number: 20090106138
    Abstract: A method of authenticating an online transaction over a first network uses 2-factor authentication of the user to defeat hacker attacks. A communication device is registered for use with the method. The communication device is configured to receive messages over a second network independent of the first network. The user is authenticated over the first network using a first factor, such as a username and password, and then initiates the transaction. A request to execute the transaction is received and a one-time password is obtained to be used as a second factor of authentication. The one-time password and details describing the transaction are sent to the communication device over the second network. The one-time password is received from the user over the first network to complete the second factor of authentication.

  • Patent number: 7440451
    Abstract: A routing system operably links a mobile platform to the Internet. The system includes a ground based communications link manager linkable to the mobile platform. At least one ground based prefix server can communicate with the communications link manager. An initial Internet address is assigned to the mobile platform. A prefix server program communicates the initial destination address of the mobile platform to the communications link manager and to the Internet. During a travel segment of the mobile platform a new destination address can be communicated to the Internet using the prefix server to maintain communication between the mobile platform and the Internet.

  • Patent number: 7139346
    Abstract: A method for synchronizing a time architecture of a mobile network that includes a plurality of network components, each having a time subsystem clock that is updated using a network time protocol (NTP) program. The method includes operating the components in a hierarchical fashion and booting up all the network components such that execution of a NTP sub-program for making small incremental changes to the each component time subsystem clock is delayed. Additionally, the method includes iteratively executing a NTP sub-program for making large changes to each component time system clock until each component time sub-system clock establishes an initial synchronization with a parent component time sub-system clock. Furthermore, the method includes iteratively executing the NTP sub-program for making small incremental changes once initial synchronization is established such that each component time sub-system clock maintains synchronization with the parent component time sub-system clock.
