  1. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  7. REAL-TIME, DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR HEARING AIDS

    SBC: Digital Communications Res Inc            Topic: N/A

    SENSORINEURAL HEARING IMPAIRMENTS, IN GENERAL, AND RECRUITMENT OF LOUDNESS, IN PARTICULAR, HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH CURRENTLY AVAILABLE HEARING AIDS. TO DATE, THESE AIDS MOSTLY AMPLIFY SOUNDS, OFTEN ON A FREQUENCY-DEPENDENT BASIS. ANALOG WIDEBAND AND MULTIBAND AIDS EMPLOYING AMPLITUDE COMPRESSION HAVE MET LIMITED SUCCESS. DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING PROVIDES GREATER FLEXIBILITY AND LE ...

  8. LUMINESCENCE DETECTION REAGENTS FOR PROTEINS

    SBC: Ela Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    ELA TECHNOLOGIES, INC., HAS PRODUCED TWO BIOLUMINESCENT PROTEINS DESIGNATED RECAEQUORIN AND RECLUCIFERASE. THESE PROTEINS PRODUCE LIGHT WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY AND ARE DETECTABLE ON FILM IN THE PICOGRAM RANGE. RECAEQUORIN PRODUCES A FLASH OF LIGHT UPON THE ADDITION OF CALCIUM, AND RECLUCIFERASE PRODUCES A SUSTAINED SIGNAL IN THE PRESENCE OFITS SUBSTRATE, COELENTERATE LUCIFERIN. THIS RESEARCH WILL EVA ...
