OBJECTIVE To develop and prospectively evaluate criteria for selecting head-injured patients requiring cranial CT. METHODS A two-phased prospective observational study design was implemented at a university ED. Physicians completed a form with 51 variables for 540 patients in Phase I. Ten high-yield variables were identified and prospectively tested on(More)
The Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS) Project of Aviation Safety Program is striving to eliminate poor visibility as a causal factor in aircraft accidents as well as enhance operational capabilities of all aircraft through the display of computer generated imagery derived from an onboard database of terrain, obstacle, and airport information. To achieve these(More)
NASA's Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS) project is developing technologies with practical applications to eliminate low visibility conditions as a causal factor to civil aircraft accidents while replicating the operational benefits of clear day flight operations, regardless of the actual outside visibility condition. A major thrust of the SVS project involves(More)
Because restricted visibility has been implicated in the majority of commercial and general aviation accidents, solutions will need to focus on how to enhance safety during instrument meteorological conditions (IMC). The NASA Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS) project is developing technologies to help achieve these goals through the synthetic presentation of(More)
Complexity theory has become influential in recent models social science. In the context of innovation and new technologies, most applications have focused on technology adoption and technology diffusion, while the topic of the innovation process has received less attention. This paper discusses three families of complexity models of technological(More)

Adult Oryzaephilus surinamensis (L.), the sawtoothed grain beetle, were exposed for 4-72 h on wheat treated with diatomaceous earth (Protect-It(TM)), then removed and held for 1 week on untreated wheat. Beetles were exposed and held at 22, 27, and 32 degrees C, 40, 57, and 75% r.h. (nine combinations). Mortality after the initial exposures increased as(More)
Previous research has demonstrated that a Head-Up Display (HUD) can be used to enable more capacity and safer aircraft surface operations. This previous research also noted that the HUD exhibited two major limitations which hindered the full potential of the display concept: 1) the monochrome HUD format; and, 2) a limited, fixed field of regard. Full-color(More)
The scientific potential of femtosecond x-ray pulses at linac-driven free-electron lasers such as the Linac Coherent Light Source is tremendous. Time-resolved pump-probe experiments require a measure of the relative arrival time of each x-ray pulse with respect to the experimental pump laser. To achieve this, precise synchronization is required between the(More)
The Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS) Project of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Aviation Safety Program (AvSP) is striving to eliminate poor visibility as a causal factor in aircraft accidents as well as enhance operational capabilities of all aircraft. To accomplish these safety and capacity improvements, the SVS concept is(More)
