  1. PEDIATRIC INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMP

    SBC: Rocky Mountain Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMPING (IABP) HAS BECOME A STANDARD TREATMENT MODALITY FOR CARDIOGENIC SHOCK IN ADULTS BUT HAS BEEN USED ONLY SPARINGLY IN INFANTS. THIS IS DUE IN PART TOTHE LIMITATIONS OF THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DRIVE SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO MEET THE PHYSIOLOGIC NEEDS OF AN ADULT. A BALLOON PUMP, SPECIFICALLY TAILORED TO THE SMALL VOLUMES AND HIGHER RATES OFTEN SEEN IN PEDIATRIC CASE ...

  2. URINARY INCONTINENCE DEVICE

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FOUR-ELEMENT FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE A NOVEL IDEA FOR PROVIDING URINARY BLADDER CONTINENCE TO INCONTINENT INDIVIDUALS, ESPECIALLY THE AGED. THE DEVICE IS A NONSURGICALLY INSERTED FLEXIBLE SEAL. MICTURITION CAN BE INITIATED BY AN EXTERNAL SEAL CONTROLLER. BECAUSE THE DEVICE CAN BE INSERTED INTO THE BLADDER THROUGH A UROCATHETER, SURGERY IS NOT REQUIRED. THE PHASE I FEASIBILITY S ...

  3. ENHANCED CENTRIFICATION DEVICES

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO APPLY NOVEL ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED CENTRIFUGATION EQUIPMENT. THIS NEW DEVICE WILL USE INCLINED SURFACES IN CONJUNCTION WITH ULTRA-SOUND FORCE FIELDS TO SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE SEDIMENTATION. BECAUSE THIS EQUIPMENT CAN PRODUCE EQUIVALENT SEPARATION WITH LOWER ACCELERATIONS (LOWER CENTRIFUGE ROTATIONAL VELOC-ITY), DESIGN OF A PRACTICAL CONTINUOUS-FLOW C ...

  4. EVALUATION OF RETROVENOUS MYOCARDIAL DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM

    SBC: Utah Biomedical Test Labs            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF RETROVENOUS MYOCARDIAL DRUG DELIVERY (XYLOCAINE) TO TREAT AND CONTROL ARRHYTHMIAS WILL BE TESTED IN SHEEP AFTER CORONARY ARTERY OCCULSION, AND THEN COMPARED TO THE STANDARD INTRAVENOUS ROUTE. ENDPOINTS OF NUMBER AND TYPE OF ARRHYTHMIAS, XYLOCAINE DOSE, PLASMA, AND MYOCARDIAL XYLOCAINE CONCENTRATIONS WILL BE DETERMINED. THE DEMONSTRA-TION OF THE HYPOTHESIS THAT RETROVENOUS MYOCAR ...

  5. DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF A COMPOUND TRACHEAL PROSTHESIS

    SBC: Utah Biomedical Test Labs            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED STUDY IS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP AND EVALUATE A METHOD OF REPLACING THE TRACHEA WITH A COMPOUND PROSTHESIS THAT WILL BE EPITHELIZED AT THE TIME OF IMPLANTATION BY TISSUE CULTURE OF BUCCAL MUCOSA OR A FREE GRAFT OF TRACHEAL MUCOSA. HEALING OF THE CERVICAL TRACHEA TO TWO TYPES OF PROSTHESES WILL BE EVALUATED IN DOGS. BOTH TYPES WILL HAVE A RIGID POLYETHYLENE OUTER LAYER AND A MIDDLE LAYER O ...

  6. OPTIMIZING THE PERFORMANCE OF VOLUME HOLOGRAPHIC MEDIA

    SBC: Holamax Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY AVAILABLE VOLUME HOLOGRAPHIC RECORDING MATERIALS OFFER IMPROVED EFFICIENCY, SIGNAL TO NOISE AND ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY. THE OPTIMUM PREDICTED BEHAVIOR AND PERFORMANCE OF CERTAIN OF THE MOST PROMISING MATERIALS IS INVESTIGATED IN THIS DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL. DCG IS THE STANDARD FOR PERFORMANCE WITH ALL OTHER MEDIA COMPETING FOR PREFERENCE. THREE MEDIA OF PARTICULAR INTEREST FOR THIS STUDY ...

  7. VLSI DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN IMAGE SEGMENTATION ALGORITHMS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IMAGE SEGMENTATION IS A CRUCIAL STEP IN IMAGE ANALYSIS AND IS REQUIRED BEFORE ANY HIGH-LEVEL SYMBOLIC MANIPULATION CAN BE DONE USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES. THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO CARRY OUT VERY LARGESCALE INTEGRATION (VLSI) DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF IMAGE SEGMENTATION ALGORITHMS USEFUL FOR ANALYZING INDUSTRIAL, BIOMEDICAL AND MILITARY IMAGES. DURING PHASE I ONE ...

  8. TIN REACTION MECHANISMS

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TITANIUM HYDRIDE REACTION WITH AMMONIA IN THE PRESENCE OF A NICKEL CATALYST TO FORM TITANIUM NITRIDE SHOWS UNEXPECTED KINETIC BEHANVIOR. A FUNDAMENTAL STUDY TO DETERMINE IF THE CAUSE OF THIS BEHAVIOR IS RELATED TO TITANIUM PHASE CHANGES IS PROPOSED. THE EFFECTS OF NITROGEN CONTENT ON WETTING OF TIN WITH NI WILL ALSO BE EVALUATED.

  9. HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY SINTERED A1N

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    ALUMINUM NITRIDE (A1N) IS AN IMPORTANT CANDIDATE MATERIAL FOR ADVANCED PACKAGING OF INTEGRATED CIRCUITS AS A HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY ALTERNATIVE TO BERYLLIUM OXIDE THAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE MADE AVAILABLE AT LOW COST. MUCH EXPERIMENTAL WORK HAS BEEN CONDUCTED ON A1N, BUT THE TECHNOLOGY STILL HAS NOT REACHED A LEVEL SUITABLE FOR APPLICATION. ADVANCES ARE NEEDED ESPECIALLY IN SINTERING TECHNOLOGY ...

  10. NEW LOW THERMAL EXPANSION STRUCTURAL CERAMICS

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, A NEW FAMILY OF MATERIALS CALLED NZP (NAZR2 (PO4)3 AND ITS ANALOGS) HAS BECOME WELL KNOWN FORITS LOW THERMAL EXPANSION BEHAVIOR. RECENTLY, IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT ZR4 (PO4)6 AND SRZR4(PO4)6 HAVE OPPOSITE ANISOTROPY IN THERMAL EXPANSION AS WELL AS OPPOSITE BULK THERMAL EXPANSION AND THAT THEIR SOLID SOLUTION RESULTS IN LOWER ANISOTROPY AND NEAR ZERO THERMAL EXPANSION. THESE ...
