  1. REAL-TIME COLLECTION, PROCESSING AND DISSEMINATION OF CUSTOMIZED LIGHTNING DATA FROM OVERLAPPING DETECTION NETWORKS

    SBC: R*scan Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNOLOGY OF REAL-TIME LIGHTNING GROUND STROKE MONITORING HAS ADVANCED SIGNIFICANTLY DURING THIS DECADE. THERE IS A CLEAR NEED FOR AN INTEGRATED NATIONAL LIGHTNING NETWORK. IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS HOWEVER, TECHNIQUES MUST BE DEVELOPED TO COLLECT LIGHTNING DATA FROM GEOGRAPHICALLY SEPARATE (AND OFTEN OVERLAPPING) NETWORKS. NETWORK OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS, SUCH AS PEAK DATA RATES, MUST ...

  4. A DYNAMIC FULL PAGE BRAILLE DISPLAY DEVICE.

    SBC: Novcom Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, THERE ARE NO FULL PAGE BRAILLE DISPLAY DEVICES ON THE MARKET. DESPITE THE DESIRABILITY AND OBVIOUS BENEFITS OF SUCH A PRODUCT, TRADITIONAL ENGINEERING APPROACHES HAVE RESULTED IN MANUFACTURING DESIGNS WHICH ARE PROHIBIITIVELY EXPENSIVE TO PRODUCE. AFTER CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF DOZENS OF ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES, NOVCOM'S PROPOSED PHASE I APPROACH OFFERS THE POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE FULL PAGE ...

  5. RAMAN SCATTERING FOR CLINICAL GAS DIAGNOSIS

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF A PROTOTYPE LASER RAMAN SCATTERING GAS SENSOR. POTENTIAL APPLICATION AREAS ARE: BLOOD PO2/PCO2 VIA SUITABLE SAMPLING CATHETER AND NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF RESPIRATION, ANESTHESIA DELIVERY, LUNG FUNCTION, AND CARDIAC OUTPUT. MASS SPEC, WHILE CURRENTLY THE MOST POPULAR APPROACH TO MEDICAL GAS QUANTITATION, SUFFERS FROM INHERENT USER UNFRIENDL ...

  6. MINIATURIZED RAMAN CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO QUANTITATE ANESTHETIC AND RESPIRATORY GASES(O2, CO2, N2) IN THE OPERATING ROOM. PREVIOUS WORK HAS SHOWN THAT RAMAN LIGHT SCATTERING CAN BE SUCCESSFULLY UTILIZED FOR MOLECULAR GAS ANALYSIS. THE RAMAN SIGNAL FOR EACH GAS CAN BE SEPARATED FROM THE LASER BEAM RAYLEIGH SCATTER VIA FILTER COMBINATIONS, THUS ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR LARGE, EXPENSIVE MONOCHROMATORS. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSE ...

  7. FIBEROPTIC PH SENSOR FOR IN VIVO MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FIBEROPTIC PH PROBE IS PROPOSED USING A FLUORESCENT DYE IMMOBILIZED IN A HYDROPHILIC GEL MATRIX. THE MAIN TASKS IN THIS PROJECT ARE: (1) SET-UP OF RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION FOR MEASURING AND CHARACTERIZING EXPERIMENTAL PROBES, (2) SELECTION AND IMMOBILIZATION OF DYES AT THE TIP OF THE OPTICAL FIBER, AND (3) TEST PH PROBESFOR SIGNAL INTENSITY, PH SENSITIVITY, TIME RESPONSE, PHOT ...

  8. HEPARIN ADSORPTION COMPLEXES FOR BLOOD COMPATIBILITY

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ANTICOAGULANT, HEPARIN, WILL BE DERIVATIZED WITH BIOLOGICALLY COMPATIBLE HYDROPHOBIC MACROMOLECULES TO MAKE THEM WATER INSOLUBLE. THIS DERIVATIZATION WILL OCCUR THROUGH HYDROPHILIC SPACER GROUPS, ALLOWING THE HEPARIN TO EXTEND INTO THE AQUEOUS ENVIRONMENT AND RETAIN ITS BIOACTIVE CONFIGURATION. THESE HEPARIN DERIVATIVES WILL BE SOLVENT-COATED ONTO BIOMEDICAL DEVICES TO PROVIDE LOW-COST, IMMOBI ...

  9. POLYMERIC MATERIALS TO MINIMIZE CELL AND TISSUE ADHESION

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    USING THE MOUSE PERITONEAL IMPLANT MODEL, MATERIALS WILL BE EVALUATED FOR THEIR BIOCOMPATIBILITY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THISSTUDY WILL BE TO DEVELOP MATERIALS WITH MINIMAL TENDENCY FORCELLULAR AND TISSUE ADHESION. POLYURETHANES AND SILICONES, MATERIALS WIDELY USED IN BIOMEDICAL DEVICE FABRICATION, WILLBE SYNTHESIZED OR MODIFIED TO YIELD A HIGH CONCENTRATION OF POLYETHER FUNCTIONALITY AT THE POLYMER SUR ...

  10. SYNTHESIS OF HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT IRON CHELATORS

    SBC: Biomedical Frontiers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS, IRON IS BOTH UBIQUITOUS AND HIGHLY REACTIVE. IN A VARIETY OF CIRCUMSTANCES, THERE IS GREAT NEED FOR NEW APPROACHES TO THE REMOVAL OF IRON OR THE CONTROL OF ITS REACTIVITY. BIOMEDICAL FRONTIERS HAS PRODUCED A SERIES OF HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT IRON CHELATORS BASED ON DERIVATION OF A NUMBER OF SUBSTRATES WITH DEFER- OXAMINE B. THIS CHELATOR HAS AN EXTREMELY HIGH AFFI ...
