Abstract
A PHASE I PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO ESTABLISH INJECTION MOLDING TECHNIQUES AND PARAMETERS FOR MOLDING OPTICAL QUALITY PARTS FROM OPTICAL QUALITY ACRYLIC AND POLYCARBONATEMOLDING MATERIALS FROM DOMESTIC COMMERCIAL SOURCES, USING AN UNGRADED EXISTING MOD. MOLDING MACHINE CONDITIONS FOR PRODUCING HIGH OPTICAL QUALITY PROPERTIES CONSISTENTLY AND REPRODUCIBLY WILL BE SOUGHT. MOLDINGS WILL BE TESTED FOR OPTICAL QUALITY AS MOLDED AND STORAGE AT AMBIENT AND ELEVATED TEMPERATURES. THIS PHASE I PROGRAM IS EXPECTED TO LEAD TO A PHASE II PROGRAM TO DESIGN, BUILD AND OPERATE A MOLD FOR MAKING PARABOLIC OR TOROID-SHAPED VISORS, INCLUDING A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF VISORS TO PERMIT FIELD EVALUATION. IN PHASE III, WITH THE DOCUMENTED OPERATING TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED IN PHASE II, WE WILL COOPERATE WITH ONE OR MORE QUALIFIED MOLDERS TO PRODUCE VISORS IN QUANTITY.
