  1. CHARACTERIZATION OF HAIL BY ACOUSTIC PROFILE

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS ORGANIZED TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ACOUSTIC APPROACH TO AUTONOMOUS DETECTION, IDENTIFICATIONAND MEASUREMENT OF HAIL. THE SENSOR, WHICH IS DESIGNED TO DISCRIMINATE HAIL FROM RAIN AND OTHER FORMS OF PRECIPITATIONIS CONFIGURED IN A SMALL, ALL SOLID STATE UNIT WITH NO MOVING PARTS. LOW COST, LOW POWER CONSUMPTION AND HIGH RELIABILITY ARE ALL IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ...

  2. IMPROVEMENT OF AIR VOID ANALYSIS OF FRESH CONCRETE

    SBC: Technical Innovations            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPROVED METHODS FOR DETERMING AIR CONTENT IN FRESH CONCRETE. WE EXPECT THAT A STUDY OF VOLUME CHANGE WITH VARYING PRESSURE AND VACUUM WILL LEAD TO A METHOD THAT WILL INDICATE BOTH AIR CONTENT AND VOID SIZE, AND YIELD AIR CONTENTS THAT T ARE UNAFFECTED BY THE NONTHEORETICAL COMPRESSIBILITY OF SMALL VOIDS. WE WILL DETERMINE THE FEACIBILITY OF SIMPLER METHODS OF ...

  3. DESIGN OF A PROTON MEDICAL ACCELERATOR

    SBC: Acctek Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-RANGE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS THE DEVELOPMENT AND COMMERCIALIZATION OF PROTON ACCELERATORS SUITABLE FOR RADIATION THERAPY OF CANCER IN HOSPITAL OR CLINICAL SETTINGS. FOR THIS PURPOSE THE ACCELERATOR SHOULD HAVE AN ENERGY UP TO 250 MEV, AND MUST BE SIMPLE, RELIABLE, AND INEXPENSIVE COMPARED TO EXISTING ACCELERATORS FOR PHYSICS APPLICATIONS. IN ADDITION, WITH SUFFICIENT INNOVATION, IT COULD ...

  5. QUANTITATION OF ESTROGEN CONCENTRATION IN CELLS

    SBC: Cell Analysis Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP QUANTITATIVE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR CONCENTRATION MEASUREMENTS USING HIGH- RESOLUTION DIGITAL IMAGE MICROSCOPY TECHNIQUES. THE TECHNIQUES WILL ENABLE DIRECT MEASUREMENTS OF RECEPTOR CONCENTRATION ON A CELL-BY-CELL BASIS. THIS IS AN IMPROVEMENT OVER THE CURRENT BIOCHEMICAL ASSAYS, WHICH GIVE ONLY AN AVERAGE VALUE FOR RECEPTOR CONCENTRATION. THE QUANTITATIVE AS ...

  6. UPDATING THE TRYON MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS COMPUTER SYSTEM

    SBC: D2 Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIME LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO UPDATE, ENHANCE, AND DISTRIBUTE TWO COMPUTER PROGRAMS UTILIZING THE UNIQUE MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES DEVELOPED BY THE PSYCHOLOGIST ROBERT TRYON WITH NIH SUPPORT DURING THE 1960S. ONE LONG-TERM GOAL IS TO PRODUCE AN ENHANCED ALL-FORTRAN VERSION OF A MAIN BCTRY82 SYSTEM, PORTABLE TO MOST LARGE COMPUTERS. A SECOND LONG-TERM GOAL IS TO PRODUCE ...

  7. CYTOMEGALOVIRUS DETECTION USING NONRADIOACTIVE DNA PROBES IN SITU

    SBC: Ert            Topic: N/A

    CYTOMEGALOVIRUS (CMV), A MEMBER OF THE HERPES VIRUS GROUP, IS PRESENT IN THE BLOOD OF A LARGE PORTION OF THE HUMAN POPULATION. ADMINISTRATION OF THIS BLOOD TO HIGH-RISK PATIENTS MAY RESULT IN DEATH. ENZO PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENTOF A QUICK, SPECIFIC, EASY AND ECONOMICAL DIAGNOSTIC TEST, BASED ON NONRADIOACTIVE DNA-DNA HYBRIDIZATION, TO DIRECTLY SCREEN HUMAN BLOOD FOR CMV. PHASE I DEVELOPMENT WILL B ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED TECHNIQUES FOR THE CLONING OF HUMAN

    SBC: Hipple Cancer Research            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HUMAN TUMOR COLONY FORMING ASSAYS (HTCFA) HAS OPENED NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR BASIC AND CLINICAL CANCER RESEARCH. HOWEVER, THE PERFORMANCE OF THE DOUBLE-LAYER AGAR TECHNIQUE CURRENTLY USED BY THE MAJORITY OF INVESTIGATORS HAS BEEN GENERALLY LOW. IN THIS CONTRACT, WE PROPOSE THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF AN ALTERNATIVE TECHNIQUE OF TUMOR CELL CLONING USING GLASS CAPILLARY TUBES INSTEAD ...

  9. IN VITRO ANTINEOPLASTIC DRUG TOXICOLOGY CHARACTERIZATION

    SBC: Hipple Cancer Research            Topic: N/A

    AMONG THE MAJOR DOSE-LIMITING TOXICITIES OF CURRENTLY USED ANTICANCER DRUGS ARE THOSE AFFECTING THE BONE MARROW, CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM, LUNGS, GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. HOWEVER, HEMATOTOXICITIES CONSTITUTE THE MOST COMMON AND OFTEN MOST SIGNIFICANT SIDE EFFECT OF THE MAJORITY OF AGENTS. WE PROPOSE THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT AND CHARACTERIZATION OF IN VITRO SYSTEMS FOR HUMAN MYELO ...

  10. IDENTIFICATION OF INFANTS AT RISK FOR MENTAL RETARDATION

    SBC: Infantest Corp.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCES IN MEDICAL CARE HAVE ALLOWED A GREATER NUMBER OF NEONATES TO SURVIVE. THE RESULT HAS BEEN AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF INFANTS AT RISK FOR LATER INTELLECTUAL RETARDATION. HAPPILY, 80 TO 90% OF HIGH-RISK INFANTS ARE INTELLECTUALLY NORMAL LATER IN LIFE. UNFORTUNATELY, NO VALID SCREENING DEVICE FOR DIFFERENTIATING INFANTS WHO WILL LATER BE INTELLECTUALLY NORMAL FROM THOSE WHO WILL BE RETARDE ...
