  1. MILLIMETER WAVE ANTENNA

    SBC: Millitech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    MILLITECH PROPOSES TO DESIGN A COMPACT OFFSET CASSEGRAIN ANTENNA SYSTEM TO BE USED AT A WAVELENGTH OF 8 MM FOR CLOUD RESEARCH. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO GIVE THE LOWSIDELOBE LEVELS CHARACTERISTIC OF AN OFFSET REFLECTOR WHILE GIVING POLARIZATION ISOLATION BETTER THAN 20 DB. THE TRADE-OFF BETWEEN HIGH POLARIZATION ISOLATION AND COMPACT SIZE WILL BE RESOLVED BY USING A GAUSSIAN OPTICS LENS ANTEN ...

  2. LOW-COST CERAMIC MEMBRANES FOR FOOD PROCESSING

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CERAMIC MEMBRANES ARE RAPIDLY EMERGING AS A NEW TECHNOLOGY IN MEMBRANE SEPARATIONS. HOWEVER, COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE DEVICES HAVE HIGH COSTS RELATIVE TO POLYMERIC MEMBRANES, TYPICALLY FIVE TO TEN TIMES HIGHER. THE TECHNOLOGY TO BE DEVELOPED EMPLOYS A UNIQUE APPROACH TO CERAMIC MEMBRANE MODULE DESIGN. THE MODULE CONCEPT SHOULD RESULT IN PRODUCTION OF CERAMIC MEMBRANES WITH A COST LESS THAN THOSE FOR ...

  4. ENHANCING SWINE PROFITABILITY WITH A MULTI-FARM FINANCIAL/BIOLOGIC DATABASE

    SBC: Swine Graphics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SWINE PRODUCERS AND SWINE INDUSTRY CONSULTANTS MUST DETERMINE WHAT AREAS OF SWINE PRODUCTION ARE LEAST EFFICIENT ECONOMICALLY IN ORDER TO REGAIN PROFITABILITY. BYDEVELOPING AN INTEGRATED, DETAILED FINANCIAL/BIOLOGIC DATABASE, SWINE PRODUCERS WILL BE ABLE TO DETERMINE INEFFICIENCIES IN THEIR OWN BUSINESSES THROUGH ANALYSIS OF THEIR DATA, AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO PLAN THE MOST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION BY ...

  5. A USER-FRIENDLY VOICE INTERACTIVE LEARNING AID FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH HANDICAPS (VILAH)

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    MANY INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES WOULD BENEFIT FROM IMPROVED METHODS FOR VOICE INPUT INTO, AND VOICE OUTPUT FROM, MICROCOMPUTERS. THE ADVANTAGES OF COMPUTERIZED VOICE OUTPUT FROM PRINTED MATERIAL FOR BLIND OR VISUALLY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS IS OBVIOUS. VERY OFTEN, INDIVIDUALS WITH LANGUAGE-LEARNING DISABILITIES FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY. THEADVANTAGES OF SYNTHESIZED SPEECH IS OBVIOUS FOR INDIVIDUALS ...

  7. PORTABLE OXYGEN-ENRICHER FOR INHALATION THERAPY

    SBC: A/g Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    HOME CARE INHALATION THERAPY REQUIRES A READY SUPPLY OF OXYGEN FOR PATIENT COMFORT. UNFORTUNATELY, AVAILABLE TECHNIQUES FOR SUPPLYING OXYGEN ALL SUFFER FROM MAJOR DRAW- BACKS. THE MOST NOTABLE COMMON PROBLEM IS EXCESSIVE WEIGHT WHICH LIMITS PATIENT MOBILITY BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE HOME. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A TRULY PORTABLE HOME CARE UN ...

  8. UTILIZATION OF 180-DEGREE PULSES IN HIGH-SPEED MRI

    SBC: Advanced Nmr Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WHOLE-BODY MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) SYSTEM CAPABLE OF ACQUIRING COMPLETE TOMOGRAPHIC PROTON IMAGES IN ABOUT 50 MILLISECONDS. IN PARTICULAR, THE POTENTIAL UTILIZATION OF 180-DEGREE RADIOFREQUENCY PULSES IS ADDRESSED AS A MEANS OF ELIMINATING ARTIFACTS THAT ARISE AS A RESULT OF MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTHS MANDATED BY SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO AN ...

  9. INTRAOPERATIVE, REGIONAL MYOCARDIAL BLOOD FLOW MONITOR

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

    CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS IS ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY PRACTICED PROCEDURES FOR THE TREATMENT OF PATIENTS WITH CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, YET A SIMPLE AND RAPID METHOD FOR ASSESSINGTHE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PROCEDURE WHILE IT IS BEING PERFORMED IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. IT WOULD BE EXTREMELYUSEFUL IF A DIRECT MEASUREMENT OF REGIONAL MYOCARDIAL BLOOD FLOW (RMBF) COULD BE MADE PRIOR TO THE CLOSING OF THE ...
