THE GOAL OF PHASE-II WILL BE COMPLETION OF ALL REMAINING SUBSYSTEM PROGRAMS, RIGOROUS TESTING OF THE ENTIRE SYSTEM, AND ENHANCING THE PRODUCT TO RUN IN A MULTIUSER ENVIRONMENT UTILIZING MODERN PERIPHERAL DEVICES, WITH EMPHASIS ON SECURITY AND PASSWORD PROTECTION OF THE DATA BASE. PHASE-III, SUPPORTED ENTIRELY BY PRIVATE CAPITAL, WILL INVOLVE SOFTWARE PRODUCTION, MARKETING, SALES, AND USER SUPPORT. GRANT SUPPORT FOR THE CONTINUATION OF THIS PROJECT IS ESSENTIAL TO ASSURE COMMERCIAL FEASIBILITY OF SOFTWARE PRODUCTION FOR A HIGHLY RESTRICTED, LIMITED MARKET AT A COST WHICH WILL ENCOURAGE WIDE APPLICATION OF THIS POWERFUL TECHNOLOGY.
