Software for Improved Extraction of Data From Tape Storage

A computer program has been written to replace the original software of Racal Storeplex Delta tape recorders, which are used at Stennis Space Center. The original software could be activated by a command- line interface only; the present software offers the option of a command-line or graphical user interface. The present software also offers the option of batchfile operation (activation by a file that contains command lines for operations performed consecutively).

Techs of the Week

An input assisting device for CAD operation is designed to circumvent time-consuming and conventional methods of using a mouse. The technology comprises sensors and a physical/structural framework which is most effective when constructing a three dimensional object in a free-space field. This device enhances the synergy between man and machine by optimizing the input or mechanical characteristics of the hand. The device realizes a time-saving environment and instinctive interface.

Hydrogen Sensor

It took millions of dollars and more than a decade of research and development, but a unique hydrogen sensor invented and patented in 1994 by scientists at Sandia National Laboratories is about to finally find its way into the commercial sector. What makes the Wide-Range Hydrogen Sensor unique is the fact that it was the first to incorporate a field effect transistor (FET) and a resistor on the same chip. The combination of these two components gives it the ability to sense a wide range of hydrogen concentrations from large amounts down to several parts per million.
