  3. DIGITAL INFRA-RED EYE COMMAND TRANSDUCER

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH TECHNOLOGY IS ADVANCING AT AN EVER INCREASING PACE,ITS APPLICATION FOR USE BY HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS HAS BEEN SLOW. SEVERELY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS OFTEN REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF "HIGH TECHNOLOGY" MEANS TO ENABLE THEM TO HAVE A DEGREE OF MOBILITY. THE SPECIFIC AIM OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF USING ELECTRO-OPTICS AS A MEANS FOR THE HANDICAPPED TO EFFECT CONTROL OF HIS/HER ...

  6. LUMEN-DAY: A NEW CONCEPT FOR DAYLIGHTING DESIGN IN COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS

    SBC: Architectural Energy Corporati            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A NEW DAYLIGHTING DESIGN METHOD BASED ON A "LUMEN-DAY" CONCEPT. THE ESSENCE OF THE LUMEN-DAY METHOD IS A STATISTICAL CLIMATIC DATA BASE, SIMILAR IN CONCEPT TO THE HEATING AND COOLING DEGREE-DAY METHOD OF ENERGY ANALYSIS, GENERATED THROUGH THE INTERROGATION AND ANALYSIS OF TMY/TRY WEATHER TAPES. THE LUMEN-DAY DATA BASE WOULD BE A STATISTICAL SUMMARY OF THE DAYLIGHT ...

  7. INTEGRATED GAAS EMITTER FOR OPTICAL INTERCONNECTIONS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFECT OF SCALING DOWN DEVICE DIMENSIONS OF VLSI STRUCTURES AND THE COMBINATION OF INCREASED CIRCUIT COMPLEXITY DURING THE SCALING PROCESS IS PLACING SEVERE LIMITATIONS ON THE MINIMUM PROPAGATION DELAY OF METALLIC INTERCONNECTS. OPTICAL INTERCONNECTS REMOVE THOSE SPEED LIMITATIONS AND OFFER A DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY THAT ELECTRICAL INTERCONNECTS COULD NEVER OBTAIN. THE KEY OPPORTUNITY IS TO INTE ...
