  1. ALTHOUGH MEMBERS OF THE LINGUISTIC AND SPEECH RECOGNITION COMMUNITIES RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPRASEMENTALS (DURATION, INTENSITY, AND FUNDAMENTAL FREQUENCY OR PITCH) INUNDERSTANDING THE SPEECH CODE, THERE IS RELATIVELY LITTLE QUANTIFIABLE DATA

    SBC: Emerson & Stern Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH MEMBERS OF THE LINGUISTIC AND SPEECH RECOGNITION COMMUNITIES RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPRASEMENTALS (DURATION, INTENSITY, AND FUNDAMENTAL FREQUENCY OR PITCH) INUNDERSTANDING THE SPEECH CODE, THERE IS RELATIVELY LITTLE QUANTIFIABLE DATA AVAILABLE, PARTICULARLY ON PITCH. EMERSON & STERN ASSOCIATES HAS ALREADY DEVELOPED A BASIC APPROACH FOR RELIABLY EXTRACTING PITCH INFORMATION FROM VARI ...

  2. INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS

    SBC: Jack R Benjamin & Assoc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINESFOR SEISMIC DESIGN AND RESTRAINT OF HAZARDOUS PIPING SYSTEMSLOCATED IN INDUSTRIAL-FACILITY BUILDINGS. AT PRESENT, NO INTEGRATED CODE OR GUIDELINE EXISTS TO FACILITATE THIS TASK.THE DESIGN LEVEL FOR PIPING SYSTEMS WILL BE BASED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PIPING AND THE INTENSITY OF THE SEISMIC LOADING. A PIPING IMPORTANCE RATING WILL BE DEVE ...

  3. THE FEASIBILITY OF AN AUTOMATED CROP ASSESSMENT METHOD BASEDUPON A PHOTO-DIODE ARRAY SENSOR AND A MICRO-COMPUTER ANALYZER IS EXAMINED.

    SBC: K D Howard Enterprises Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF AN AUTOMATED CROP ASSESSMENT METHOD BASEDUPON A PHOTO-DIODE ARRAY SENSOR AND A MICRO-COMPUTER ANALYZER IS EXAMINED. THIS CROP ASSESSMENT METHOD EXPLOITS THE VISUAL DAMAGE PATTERNS, FROM BIOLOGICAL INFESTATIONS, FOUND ON THE LEAVES OF THE CROP (3,6,14,16). CURRENT CROP ASSESSMENT TECHNIQUES TAKE A LEAF SAMPLE ALONG A FIELD DIAGONAL FOR LABORATORY ANALYSIS, AFTER A PROBLEM IS DETE ...

  4. A NEW CLASS OF TRASITION METAL COMPLEXES FOR THE REVERSIBLE BINDING OF OXGEN IS BEING DEVISED.

    SBC: Maxdem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW CLASS OF TRASITION METAL COMPLEXES FOR THE REVERSIBLE BINDING OF OXGEN IS BEING DEVISED. THE OBJECT MATERIALS WILLOFFER LOW COST, HIGH STABILITY, AND RAPID ABSORPTION AND DESORPTION OF OXGEN AT OR NEAR THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE. A PRESSURE SWING DEVICE USING THESE MATERIALS IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE OXYGEN OF EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH PURITY (99%), AND TO BEESPECIALLY RUGGED. PRIMARY APPLICATIONS WILL B ...

  5. THE ANNUAL U.

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANNUAL U.S. PRODUCTION OF OXYGEN AND NITROGEN IS 20 MILLION TONS EACH. ALMOST ALL OF THESE GASES ARE PRODUCED BYCRYOGENIC FRACTIONATION, A HIGH COST AND ENERGY DEMANDING PROCESS. MEMBRANE SEPARATION FROM AIR IS A POTENTIAL LOW COST ALTERNATIVE PROCESS; HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL MEMBRANES ARE INSUFFICIENTLY SELECTIVE. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP CARRIERFACILITATED TRANSPORT MEMBRANES. THE CURRENT FACILIT ...

  6. ALTHOUGH LARGE SUMS OF MONEY ARE BEING INVESTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF LAND-BASED TANK CULTIVATION OF ABALONE, NO ONE HAS DEVELOPED A POLYCULTURE TECHNOLOGY FOR LARGE-SCALE IN-THE-SEA CULTIVATION OF BOTH ABALONE AND ITS MACROALGAL FOODS.

    SBC: Neushul Mariculture Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH LARGE SUMS OF MONEY ARE BEING INVESTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF LAND-BASED TANK CULTIVATION OF ABALONE, NO ONE HAS DEVELOPED A POLYCULTURE TECHNOLOGY FOR LARGE-SCALE IN-THE-SEA CULTIVATION OF BOTH ABALONE AND ITS MACROALGAL FOODS. WE PROPOSE TO TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF ABALONE-ALGAE POLYCULTURE INTHE SEA USING INNOVATIVE MARINE FARMS THAT SUPPORT SPECIAL PLASTIC AND FIBERGLASS-MESH CONTAINERS ...

  7. MAXIMIZATION OF AGAR BIOSYNTHESIS IN THE RED ALGAE

    SBC: Ocean Genetics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INTERNAL NEED EXISTS FOR A STABLE SOURCE OF HIGH-QUALITY PURIFIED AGAR (AGAROSE) FOR BIOCHEMICAL AND MICROBIOLOGICAL RESEARCH. MATERIAL IS CURRENTLY OBTAINED EXCLUSIVELY FROM NATURAL POPULATIONS BY LABOR-INTENSIVE METHODS, SINCE CULTURE SYSTEMS HAVE YET TO BE WIDELY DEVELOPED. PRESENT PRODUCTION OF AGAR IS THREATENED BY OVER-EXPLOITATION OF NATURAL POPULATIONS AND UNSTABLE SOCIO-POLITICAL SITUA ...

  8. DIGITAL AND OPTICAL DATA BUSES FOR VISION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Optical Networks Inc            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE DIGITAL VERSUS OPTICAL TRADEOFFS FOR DATA BUSES IN DIGITAL IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEMS. THE RESEARCH IS MOTIVATED BY THE ENORMOUS NUMBER OF PIXELS IN TYPICAL IMAGES OF INTEREST, AND THEE COMPARATIVELY LONG TIMES ASSOCIATED WITH DATA TRANSFER BOTH INTO THE IMAGE PROCESSING WORKSTATION AND EVEN WITHIN THE PROCESSOR ITSELF. OPTICAL DATA BUSES ARE OF INTEREST DUE TO THEIR CO ...

  9. CUTLURES

    SBC: Plant Genetics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE GENETIC ENGINEERING OF COTTON PROVIDES AN OUTSTANDING OPPORTUNITY FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THIS CROP. THE PRIMARY PROBLEM IN DEVELOPING A USEFUL GENE TRANSFER SYSTEM FOR COTTON HAS BEEN THE DIFFICULTY IN PLANT REGENERATION. HOWEVER, RESEARCHERS AT PLANT GENETICS, INC.,HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED A COTTON EMBRYO-FORMING SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS HIGH FREQUENCY PLANT REGENERATION WITH MINIMAL SOMACLONAL VARI ...

  10. TO FIELD TUBERS

    SBC: Plant Genetics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE INFLUENCE OF FOUR TISSUE CULTURE SYSTEMS FOR MICROTUBER INDUCTION, DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH ARE EXAMINED. THE LITERATURE DESCRIBES THREE SYSTEMS FOR MAKING MICROTUBERS. HOWEVER, NO DATA HAS BEEN GENERATED TO DEFINE THE RELATIONSHIP AT A PHYSIOLOGICAL LEVEL BETWEEN MICROTUBERS AND FIELD TUBERS. THREE POTATO VARIETIES WILL BE EVALUATED.THE PARAMETERS OF MICROTUBER FORMATION WHICH WILL BE EXAMINED ...
