Abstract
THE ABSENCE OF REAL-TIME RECORDING SUBSYSTEMS WITH RESOLUTION AND RECORD RATE CAPABILITIES THAT MATCH MEDICAL IMAGING MODALITIES SEVERELY LIMITS THE DIAGNOSTIC CAPABILITIES AND UNNECESSARILY EXTENDS PATIENT PROCEDURES, HAZARDS, AND COSTS. PHASE I WILL DEAL WITH APPLIED RESEARCH FOR A CASSETTEABLE DIGITAL MAGNETIC TAPE RECORDER FOR DIGITALLY RECORDING IMAGES WITH RESOLUTION OF 5122, 10242, 20482 AT RECORD RATES OF 30, 7.5, 1.875 FRAMES/SEC, RESPECTIVELY, WITH A REAL-TIME CAPACITY OF 20 MINUTES PER THE PHASE I OBJECTIVES ARE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE, BLOCK DIAGRAMS, CRITICAL COMPONENT TESTING SUCH AS SHORT WAVE LENGTH RESPONSE MEDIA, NARROW GAP HIGH-FREQUENCY MAGNETIC HEADS, AND TESTS FOR DROP-OUT RESPONSE AND ERROR CORRECTION. RESEARCH STAFF IS IN PLACE WITH A FULLY EQUIPPED RECORDING LABORATORY. THIS PROJECT CAPITALIZES HEAVILY ON TRANSPORT COMPONENTS OF PROVEN MERIT CURRENTLY IN HIGH VOLUME MANUFACTURE, PERMITTING DEVELOPMENT TO FOCUS ON SHORT WAVE LENGTH RECORDING TECHNOLOGIES. THE PRIMARY RESULT LIES IN PROOFING SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS OF: 1.TAPE SPEED 2.TRACK WIDTH 3.HEAD GAP LENGTH 4.RECORD TIME 5.MEDIA SELECTION 6.RAW ERROR RATE 7.CORRECTED ERROR RATE. INTERFACE WITH RECORDING INDUSTRY TECHNICAL COMMITTEES, U.S. AND OFFSHORE TECHNOLOGY SOURCES, AND DOMINANT MEDICAL OEMS VIVIDLY DESCRIBES THE VOID/NEED FOR THIS INNOVATION. SUCCESSFUL COMMERCIALIZATION THROUGH SALES
