*** Boeing Assigned Patent for Thermally Efficient Tooling for Composite Component Manufacturing ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 31 -- Boeing, Chicago, has been assigned a patent (8,337,192) developed by John M. Griffith, Wildwood, Mo., for a "thermally efficient tooling for composite component manufacturing." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and apparatus for manufacturing composite components. A tool is present for use in manufacturing composite components. The tool comprises an encapsulation layer having a shape, an insulation layer on the encapsulation layer, and an isolation layer on the insulation layer. The isolation layer has an outer surface capable of contacting a composite material laid up on the outer surface. The insulation layer is capable of insulating the encapsulation layer from heat applied to the composite material. The encapsulation layer is capable of maintaining a shape with the composite material laid up on the isolation layer during a curing process to form a composite component from the composite material."

*** Missouri Inventor Develops Patent for Flow Limiting Bottle Cap ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 31 -- David L. Griffin, O'Fallon, Mo., has developed a patent (8,336,744) for a "flow limiting bottle cap." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The flow limiting bottle cap secures to a container having a threaded neck and allows a user to select an open or a closed position without removing the cap from a container. Additionally fluid from within a container, when poured, forms multiple separate streams in laminar flow. The cap provides a pattern of conically shaped holes for passing of fluid. Each hole has edge conditions for adjusting the flow relative to pouring. The cap opens by raising an upper portion and closes by lowering the upper portion or by rotating the upper portion to expose the holes and closing by rotating oppositely to block the holes. Knurling upon the perimeter of the upper portion aids the user. An internal seal also excludes atmospheric communication to reduce spoilage of fluids within a container." The patent application was filed on May 17, 2011 (13/109,220).

*** Aclara Power-Line Systems Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 31 -- Aclara Power-Line Systems, Hazelwood, Mo., has been assigned a patent (8,336,352) developed by Priotomo Abiprojo, O'Fallon, Mo., Gordon Gregg, St. Louis, and David Rieken, St. Peters, Mo., for a "transient detector and fault classifier for a power distribution system." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Detection of fault occurrences within a power distribution system. A transient detector and fault classification system (10) implements an algorithm that detects transients which may result from the occurrence of a fault in the power distribution system. The system includes a detection module (18) which processes a set samples obtained from electrical waveforms propagated of through the power distribution system and appear to be statistically anomalous compared to other sample data. This is done using an adaptive detection algorithm that is applied when large changes occur in a waveform over a relatively short period of time. The identified samples are then provided to a signal classifier module (20) which processes sets of samples to classify a transient they represent as a likely fault occurrence or some other type of anomaly which is likely not a fault occurrence. If a transient is classified as representing a likely fault occurrence, a polling module (30) polls users of the distribution system to determine if a fault has occurred within the distribution system, and, if so, where." The patent application was filed on Jan. 25, 2010 (12/692,919).
