  1. ADVANCED COMPUTER INTEGRATED WIRELESS BI-DIRECTIONAL GROUP RESPONSE SYSTEM

    SBC: Computer Enhanced Tech            Topic: N/A

    THE POWER OF INSTANT FEEDBACK IN STIMULATING LEARING HAS BEEN WELL DEMONSTRATED IN THE EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY, BUT MODERN TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN SLOW IN PRODUCING A PRACTICAL, RELIABLE AND COST-EFFECTIVE METHOD OF PROVIDING SUCH FEEDBACK IN THE CLASSROOM. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A SYSTEM WHICH UTILIZES CURRENT TECHNOLOGY TO ENHANCE THE LEARNING SITUATION FOR THE PUPIL AND INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF THE ...

  2. ENHANCING JOB OPPORTUNITIES BY USING ADAPTIVE FLEXIBLE ABBREVIATION EXPANSION TO INCREASE TYPING RATE

    SBC: Gms Systems            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE EMERGENCE OF THE COMPUTER AS A BASIC TOOL IN THE WORKPLACE, TYPING IS AN ESSENTIAL VOCATIONAL SKILL. PEOPLE WHO ARE UNABLE TO FULLY UTILIZE STANDARD KEYBOARDS HAVE SIGNIFICANLY LOWER TYPING RATES. ABBREVIATION EXPANSION IS A POWERFUL TECHNIQUE FOR SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THIS RATE. CURRENT EXPANDERS RESTRICT THEMSELVES TO FIXED ABBREVIATION SCHEMES TO ACHIEVE ACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. THIS ...

  3. THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF ROBOTIC SYSTEMS FOR THE ORTHOPEDICALLY HANDICAPPED.

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES IN THE DELIVERY OF SERVICES TO HANDICAPPED PERSONS INCLUDES A VARIETY OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE MEANT TO ENHANCE THEIR PHYSICAL AND COGNITIVE ABILITIES. RECENT ADVANCES IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF ROBOTIC MANIPULATORS INDICATE THAT THEY HAVE GREAT PROMISE AS PROSTHETIC AIDS FOR THESE INDIVIDUALS. ROBOTIC DEVICES PROMISE TO ONE DAY PROVIDE A GREATER DEGREE OF PERSONAL I ...

  4. IDENTIFICATION OF MAJOR BARRIERS AFFECTING EMPLOYERS' DECISIONS TO HIRE HANDICAPPED WORKERS

    SBC: Psi Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL SURVEY A STRATIFIED SAMPLE OF 120 EMPLOYERS IN N.E. OHIO (BASED ON SIZE, FUNCTION, AND SIMILAR VARIABLES) TO DETERMINE WHAT MAJOR FACTORS AFFECT EMPLOYERS IN THEIR HIRING OF HANDICAPPED PERSONS. PSYCHOLOGISTS WILL INTERVIEW PERSONNEL DECISION MAKERS TO IDENTIFY EMPLOYER'S PERSPECTIVES ON BARRIERS TO THE GREATER EMPLOYMENT OF HANDICAPPED PERSONS. RESULTING FROM THIS INVESTIGATION ...

  5. INPUT AND OUTPUT MECHANISMS AND DEVICES

    SBC: Stafftec            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A 2-CHANNEL ELECTROMYOGRAM (EMG) ADAPTIVE-FIRMWARE CARD SYSTEM FOR IBM AND IBM COMPATIBLE COMPUTERS. THE ADAPTIVE-FIRMWARE CARD SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE KEYBOARD INPUT THAT IS CONTROLLED BY EMG SIGNALS. THE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED FOR DISABLED INDIVIDUALS WHO CAN NOT USE STANDARD KEYBOARDS IN THEIR NORMAL FASHION. THE SYSTEM WILL BE "TRANSPARENT" TO THE COMPUTER AND ...

  6. MOLYBDENUM DISILICIDE MATRIX COMPOSITES BY SLIP CASTING

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH MOLYBDENUM DISILICIDE (MOSI2) EXHIBITS HIGH-TEMPERATURE CHEMICAL STABILITY AND HAS A MELTING POINT OF 2010 DEGREES CENTIGRADE, THE LACK OF ROOM-TEMPERATURE FRACTURE TOUGHNESS AND POOR HIGH-TEMPERATURE CREEP RESISTANCE HAVE SEVERELY LIMITED ITS STRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS. THEREFORE, IT IS DESIRED TO FABRICATE COMPOSITES USING MOSI2, AS THE MATRIX MATERIAL. UNLIKE THE CONVENTIONAL CVI PROCESS, ...

  7. MONOLITHIC GAAS LIGHT-EMITTING DIODES ON SILICON VLSI CIRCUITS ELEMENTS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OPTOELECTRONIC SOURCES, INTEGRATED AS MONOLITHIC ELEMENTS ON SILICON VLSI CHIPS, OFFER IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES IN THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION WITHIN THE CHIP OR BETWEEN CHIPS IN ADVANCED COMPUTER SYSTEMS. THE SPEED OF OPTICAL-INTEGRATED VLSI DEVICES IS EXPECTED TO BE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN EQUIVALENT VLSI WITH METALLIC INTERCONNECTS, DUE TO ABSENCE OF THE RC DELAY INHERENT IN THE METALLIC CONDU ...

  8. COLD-FLOW PROCESSING OF MOLYBDENUM SHAPED CHARGE LINERS

    SBC: Cousino Metal Products Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT PERFORMANCE INCREASES ARE POSSIBLE BY USING LINERS OF HEAVIER METALS IN WARHEADS. THERE NEEDS TO BE AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP NOVEL METHODS FOR FORMING LINERS FROM CERTAIN HEAVY METALS. THE PHASE I TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES WILL BE TO PROVE THAT COUSINO'S COLD-FLOWING PROCESS IS A COMPETITIVE AND VIABLE TECHNIQUE FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF MOLYBDENUM SHAPED CHARGES. THIS EFFORT PR ...
