  • Publication number: 20200116848
    Abstract: A layered tactical information system and a method of sharing tactical information between multiple layers are provided. The method performed by a processor of each layer of the multiple layers includes searching for relevant data available to the processor of the layer in response to at least one of a layer request from the processor of another layer of the multiple layers and a directive received by a processor of a first layer of the multiple layers. The directive specifies an end state, one or more target types, a time window, a geographic location area, and a first layer requirement of at least one layer requirement to be resolved by the processor of the first layer. The method performed by the processor further includes evaluating whether a layer requirement of the at least one layer requirement for the layer is satisfied based on at least one of (a) any found relevant data that was found by the search and (b) layer data obtained from at least one of the other layers.

  • Patent number: 10552531
    Abstract: A system comprising a computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program and a method for integrating collaborative spreadsheet data into one or more network applications is presented. The method may include accessing an application data schema comprising a set of constraints on application data consumed by an application hosted by an application server. The method may further include accessing a spreadsheet having one or more data validation rules. The method may further include determining whether the one or more data validation rules include the set of constraints. In response to determining the one or more data validation rules include the set of constraints, application data consumed by the application is synchronized with spreadsheet data corresponding to the spreadsheet.

  • Publication number: 20200034417
    Abstract: A system comprising a computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program and a method for integrating collaborative spreadsheet data into one or more network applications is presented. Spreadsheet data and an application data schema are accessed. The spreadsheet data corresponds to a spreadsheet having one or more validation rules. The application data schema comprises a set of constraints on application data consumed by an application hosted by an application server. A notification is displayed in response to determining that the one or more validation rules exclude at least one constraint from the set of constraints. The notification includes an indication that the application data is unable to be synchronized with the spreadsheet data and specifies one or more additional validation rules to associate with the spreadsheet to trigger synchronization of the application data with the spreadsheet data.

  • Publication number: 20180117801
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a method and an apparatus for curing a polymeric form. The method includes arranging an uncured polymeric form within a curing chamber (60) formed by a base member (20) and a constraining member (40). A thermal expansion member (30) is additionally positioned within the curing chamber (60) with the uncured polymeric form (70) such that the thermal expansion member and the uncured polymeric form are positioned between the base member (20) and the constraining member (40). The thermal expansion member (30) is heated to expand in size into an expanded state. In the expanded state the thermal expansion member (30) applies pressure to the uncured polymeric form (70) within the curing chamber. The expansion of the thermal expansion member (30) is maintained to maintain the application of pressure to the uncured polymeric form while the uncured polymeric form is being cured to form a cured polymeric form.
