  • Patent number: 10466702
    Abstract: An aircraft computer system includes segregated processing elements, each executing an autonomous agent. Each autonomous agent receives a set of data pertaining to aircraft events and processes the data to identify a set of instructions for resolving the event. Each autonomous agent then compares all competing solutions to determine if each autonomous agent agrees; if so, the solution is implemented, if not, the disparity is resolved either automatically via a voting algorithm or with the intervention of a human decision maker.

  • Patent number: 10452446
    Abstract: Transparently executing applications among cores in a multi-processor system includes monitoring elements associated with each processor which align execution of threads within corresponding cores of the processors. Alignment is accomplished by monitoring system resource utilization by each core, comparing process counters associated with corresponding cores, and comparing data sets in and out during application frame switching. In a further aspect, inputs are coordinated by a synchronization element. Likewise, outputs for corresponding cores are compared to ensure no corrupted data is propagated.

  • Patent number: 10447588
    Abstract: A decentralized Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) architecture configured for onboard avionics processing eliminates centralized computing cabinets and distributes avionics processing capabilities to a network of smart switching devices positioned throughout the aircraft, each smart switch including a multicore processing environment (MCPE) for generalized application hosting in addition to the switching elements. The smart switching network can be scaled up or down for smaller or larger aircraft, or organically grown by adding more processing components. Additional real-time multicore processors may be located in smart remote data concentrators (RDC) for handling I/O and routing of network data between external remote units and aircraft systems and the hosted applications on the smart switches. The real-time environments executing on the smart RDCs may be reserved for low-latency closed-loop functions, or may host additional general-purpose avionics processing.

  • Publication number: 20190110467
    Abstract: An aqueous agricultural composition includes a pesticide, water, and a co-polymer. The co-polymer is the reaction product of an acrylamide monomer and a macromonomer. The acrylamide monomer and the macromonomer react together in the absence of an anionic monoethylenically unsaturated monomer including an acidic group chosen from —COOH, —SO3H, —PO3H2 and associated salts. The disclosed aqueous agricultural composition may be incorporated into agricultural spray operations and demonstrates effective reduction of driftable droplets.

  • Publication number: 20140206541
    Abstract: Suggested are agricultural compositions, comprising one or more esters of C6-C22 monocarboxylic acids or C2-C20 dicarboxylic acids and polyhydric alcohols selected from the group consisting of diglycerol, triglycerol, oligo- or polyglycerol and their respective alkylene oxide adducts, one or more biocides, and optionally, one or more oil components or solvents and/or one or more emulsifiers, wherein the esters are essentially free of esters of monomeric glycerol and esters of alkylene oxide adducts of monomeric glycerol. The esters are useful for forming agricultural compositions using hard water.
