  • Patent number: 10399884
    Abstract: A glass sheet used in the making of an aircraft windshield is shaped using the “cut-to-size” method instead of the “out-after-bend” method. In a preferred aspect of the invention the “cut-to-size” method is practiced using a bending iron having a sheet shaping rail having a stationary shaping rail portion mounted on a support member and an articulating shaping rail portion pivotally mounted on the support member for movement from a non-shaping position to a shaping position.

  • Patent number: 10394854
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are provided for inferring missing or ambiguous attribute values for entities based on partial information about such entities and/or information about other similar entities as extracted from multiple information sources for generating Web ranking signals for online search. A plurality of heterogeneous input data sources are ingested and combined to produce output data having information content that is more than the sum of its parts. A generic platform is provided where multiple data sources having information content related to entity attributes can be plugged-in without additional changes being necessary to the platform. This generic plugin model for extracting and inferring entity attribute values makes it easy to leverage new data sources as they become available to improve the final inferred attribute data.

  • Patent number: 10374416
    Abstract: A system for monitoring performance of an aircraft windshield includes a sensor comprising a sensory contact and an evaluation unit. The sensory contact is in physical contact with one or more components of the windshield, and generates a signal representative of the performance of the component(s) of the windshield. An electrical connector is secured to the surface of the windshield facing the interior of the aircraft. The signal from the sensory contact passes through the connector to the evaluation unit. The evaluation unit acts on the signal to determine the performance of the component(s) of the windshield, wherein the evaluation unit is spaced from and out of physical contact with the windshield and the electrical connector, and is in electrical contact with the electrical connector.

  • Publication number: 20180239827
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are provided for permitting users to search the content of a plurality of apps from a single search query input location. A user inputs a search query and a plurality of apps and/or the content thereof is searched to determine relevancy to the input query. If an app having relevant app content is identified, it may be determined if the app is associated with the querying user. If it is determined that the app is associated with the querying user, the information determined relevant to the input query may be presented to the user. If, it is determined that the app is not associated with the user, the user may be presented with the identity of the app and/or be directed to a location (e.g., an app store) where the user can become associated with the identified app and obtain the desired information.

  • Publication number: 20180208294
    Abstract: A network system for monitoring and storing data of aircraft intelligent windows or windshields to provide useable life of, provide real life performance of, and/or measure characteristics and/or properties of, the windshields forwards the data from sensors mounting the windshield to a window sensing hub having a microprocessor programmed to receive and process the data to determine the performance of the windshield and formatting the data in accordance to a preset program, wherein the program includes providing data from the sensors that measures characteristics and properties of the windshield that are active during the period in which the data is taken. An aircraft central maintenance system connected to the window sensing hub receives the formatted information from the window sensing hub and unfiltered or unformatted information, wherein the unfiltered information from the windshield is acted on by the central maintenance system to provide an estimated useable life of the windshield.

  • Patent number: 10019039
    Abstract: A clamshell-type electronic device includes a dual-axis hinge module, a first electronic module, and a second electronic module, the latter two of which are electrically connected to each other. The dual-axis hinge module includes a fixing shaft, a moving shaft parallel to and engaged with the fixing shaft, a moving frame fastened to the fixing shaft and the moving shaft, a torsion structure fixed on the moving shaft, and a fixing frame. No torsion structure is disposed on the fixing shaft. The moving frame is fixed on the first electronic module. The fixing frame has a connecting portion fixed on the fixing shaft and a mounting portion fixed on the second electronic module. The moving shaft can be rotated along the fixing shaft and can be synchronously spun, so that a distance between the moving shaft and the mounting portion can be changed.
