THE USE OF MATHEMATICAL MODELING, EXPLORATORY DEVELOPMENT MODEL FABRICATION, AND EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS TO ASSIST AND VERIFY PERFORMANCE PREDICTIONS IS ALSO PROPOSED. THE OFFERER CITES SEVERAL RECENTLY DESIGNED, CONSTRUCTED AND TESTED UNITS OF HIS ORIGIN AND PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ARRAY ELEMENT WHICH BENEFITS FROM EXTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED.
