  9. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AT THE PPB LEVEL FROM CULINARY WATER USING A NOVEL MACROCYCLE-SILICA GEL DEVICE

    SBC: IBC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO HAVE A MTHOD FOR EFFICIENT, COST EFFEC- TIVE, AND SIMULTANEOUS REMOVAL OF PB(II), AG(I), CD(II) AND HG(II) FROM POTABLE WATER TO LEVELS WELL BELOW THEIR EPA LIMITS. SUCH A METHOD COULD BE USED BY BOTH MUNICIPAL WATER WASTE TREATMENT PLALNTS. THE INTERACTION OF THE MACROCYCLE TETRAAZA-18CROWN WITH THE METALS OF INTEREST IS OF SUFFI- CIENT STRENGTH AND SELECTIVITY TO REMOVE THE ME ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. INTELLIGENT EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR SIMULATOR TRAINING

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    FLIGHT SIMULATION IS A PRIMARY AND CRITICAL FORM OF TRAINING. HOWEVER, CURRENT SIMULATORS HAVE NOT YET BEEN INTEGRATED WITH COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING (CBT) TECHNOLOGY. THIS MEANS THAT AUTHORING TOOLS AND OTHER TYPICAL CBT CAPABILITIES SUCH AS PERFORMANCE MONITORING, GIVING ADVISE TO STUDENTS AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS, AND RECORD KEEPING FUNCTIONS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR TRAINING WITH SIMULATORS. WE BELI ...
