  1. TELEPHONE TECHNOLOGY AND RURAL TOURISM DEVELOPMENT: ROMANCING THE METRO TOURIST

    SBC: Associated Enterprises Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NATIONAL ATTENTION HAS REFOCUSED ON FINDING NEW ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES TO HELP RURAL ECONOMIES. RURAL TOURISM CAN REVITALIZE THESE ECONOMIES BUT IS HINDERED BY POOR RURAL INFRASTRUCTURE, ISOLATION, POOR ACCESS TO RESOURCE INFORMATION, AND INSUFFICIENT PROMOTION FUNDS. TELESONIC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF INTRODUCING A UNIQUE MULTIMEDIA TELEPHONE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM TO ...

  2. ADVANCED FIRE DETECTION BASED ON COMBINED CONVENTIONAL SMOKE AND CO SENSORS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SMOKE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES SUFFER FROM SIGNIFICANT FALSE ALARM RATES. THESE PROBLEMS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ADDRESSED BY REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF EXISTING PARTICULATE DETECTORS. IN THIS WORK, THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMBINED PARTICULATE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR WILL BE EVALUATED. THE USE OF MULTIPLE FIRE SIGNATURES HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR REDUCING THE FALSE ALARM PROBLEMS WHILE INCREASING ...

  3. ACOUSTIC VOLUMETER FOR THE RAPID ESTIMATION OF THE FAT CONTENT OF AN ANIMAL

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

    IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO PREDICT THE FAT CONTENT OF LIVE ANIMALS DESIGNED FOR FOOD. SUCH KNOWLEDGE MAY BE USED TO GUIDE DIET REGIMENS, BREEDING AND SELECTION PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO PRODUCE A LEANER PRODUCT. ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN METHODS OF ESTIMATING THE FAT FRACTION IS BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT OF TOTAL BODY DENSITY (WEIGHT/VOLUME). THE METHOD IS NOT USED IN PRACTICE BECAUSE THE VOLUME MEASUREM ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD CALIBRATION MODEL FOR THE NEAR-INFRARED ANALYSIS OF GASOLINE

    SBC: L T Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY (NIST) HAS UNDERTAKEN AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE SOLID STANDARDS AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE STANDARDIZATION OF NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROPHOTOMETERS. THIS EFFORT, COUPLED WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS FOR REGRESSION MODEL TRANSFER, HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD CALIBRATION MODELS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH FOCUSES ON TH ...

  5. HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS.

    SBC: NEOCERA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) FILMS HAVE A LARGE POTENTIAL AS DETECTORS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. TO BE USEFUL FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE HTSC FILM QUALITY SHOULD BE VERY HIGH, BOTH FROM THE VIEW POINTS OF STRUCTURE AND SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES. A MAJOR TASK, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGH SENSITIVITY, FAST RESPONSE, LOW NOISE LEVELS, AND UNIFORM SPECTRAL ...

  7. CHARACTERISTICS OF OYSTER RACK STRUCTURES IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY

    SBC: World's End Aquaculture Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NATIVE OYSTER PRODUCTION AND POPULATION HAVE FALLEN DRAMATICALLY IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY. THE PUBLIC FISHERY HAS BEEN DECIMATED BY DISEASE WHILE THE PRIVATE CULTURISTS HAVE BEEN BURDENED BY A RIGID LEGAL AND SOCIAL FRAMEWORK. A METHOD OF PRODUCTION WHICH UTILIZES THE EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE PUBLIC FISHERY AND THE DISEASE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES OF THE PRIVATE CULTURISTS NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED. T ...
