  1. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE POSSIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE LETTER-QUALITY OR DOT-MATRIX PRINTERSFOR BRAILLE OUTPUT WHEN USED WITH A MICROCOMPUTER.

    SBC: Duffy Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE POSSIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE LETTER-QUALITY OR DOT-MATRIX PRINTERSFOR BRAILLE OUTPUT WHEN USED WITH A MICROCOMPUTER. THE BRAILLE-OUTPUT ENVISIONED WOULD BE GRADE I BRABRAILLE SINCE GRADE II WOULD NORMALLY REQUIRE TRANSCRIPTION BY AN EX AN EXPERIENCED BRAILLIST. THIS CONCEPT IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE AN INEXPENSIVE, AUTOMATED, AND RAPID SYSTEM OF BRAILLE- ...

  2. WITH MICROCOMPUTERS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ADVANCES IN MICROCOMPUTER TECHNOLOGY HAVE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED PERSONS TO CONTINUE NORMALLY WITH THEIR EDUCATION. VOICE SYNTHESIZERS AND TEXT MAGNIFI CATION ENABLE HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS TO BEAR RO READ BOOKS,MAGAZINES, AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS WHICH ARE STORED IN D N DIGITAL FROM IN THE MICROCOMPUTER. THE RECENT INTRODUCTION OF A LOW COST, MANUALLY OPERATED, OPTICAL SCANNE ...

  3. OF COAL WATER FUEL-

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IF COAL WATER FUELS (CWF) ARE TO BE USED WITH THE CONVENIENCE AND RELIABILITY OF LIQUID OR GASEOUS FUELS, CHOICES MUST BE MADE IN SLURRY FORMULATION, COAL RANK, DEGREE AND METHOD OF CLEANING, ATOMIZATION TECHNOLOGY, COMBUSTION PARAMETERS, AND SORBENT ADDITIVES. A LABORATORY-SCALE METHOD IS NEEDED FOR TESTING CWF WHERE THE RESULTS CAN BE RELATED TO THE FUEL'S PERFORMANCE IN FULL-SCALE DEVICES. A RE ...

  5. IN COMBUSTOR GAS STREAMS-

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL ATTEMPT TO DEVELOP A HIGH-RESOLUTION, INFRARED INSTRUMENT TO MONITOR CONCENTRATION LEVELS OF INDIVIDUAL ALKALI MOLECULAR SPECIES IN COMBUSTOR GAS STREAMS. THE FORMATION OF ALKALI SULFATES ON HOT COMBUSTOR SURFACES LEADS TO SEVERE CORROSION AND FOULING, RAISING OPERATING COSTS AND REDUCING EFFICIENCY. A MONITOR OF THE DOMINANT GAS-PHASE ALKALIS WOULD AID DEVELOPMENT OF MEASUREMENTS ...

  7. TOMOGRAPHY CAMERAS-

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) IS A NONINVASIVE MEDICAL IMAGING TECHNIQUE THAT PROVIDES A THREE-DIMEN- SIONAL IMAGE OF RADIOPHARMACEUTICALS DISPERSED IN THE BODY. IT IS BECOMING AN IMPORTANT FUNDAMENTAL TOOL FOR BOTH CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS AND MEDICAL RESEARCH. THE HEART OF THIS INSTRUMENT IS A LARGE ARRAY OF NUCLEAR DETECTORS MOSTLY CONSISTING OF SCINTILLATOR CRYSTALS COUPLED TO PHOTOMULTIPLIER T ...

  9. THE MAJOR LIMITING RELIABILITY COMPONENTS OF CRYOGENIC SYSTEMS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SEALS.

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR LIMITING RELIABILITY COMPONENTS OF CRYOGENIC SYSTEMS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SEALS. BESIDES CONTRIBUTING TO GAS CONTAMINATION AND DEBRIS PARTICLE ACCUMLATION, SEALS HAVE PHYSICALLY FAILED; AS A RESULT, SEALS HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAJORITY OF FAILURES OCCURING IN CRYOGENIC LIQUEFACTION AND REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS. A POTENTIALLY VIABLE SOLUTION IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF LONG- LIFE CRYOGENIC SEA ...

  10. USING METHODS COMPATIBLE WITH SOLAR CELL FABRICATION-

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL EXPLORE NEW METHODS OF FABRICATING THE RECENTLY REPORTED CONDUCTIVE POLYMER, POLY (ISOTHIANAPHTHENE) (PITN). WHEN ELECTROCHEMICALLY FORMED FILMS OF PITN ARE DOPED, THEY HAVE A HIGH CONDUCTIVITY AND ARE HIGHLY TRANSPARENT IN THE VISIBLE PORTION OF THE SPECTRUM. BECAUSE THE POLYMER FILM CAN BE PRODUCED AT LOW TEMPERATURES, IT OFFERS AN ALTER- NATIVE TO THE PRESENTLY USED WIDE-BANDG ...
