The analysis of inventions and patents as a method for determining the technological level of a country is proposed. The characteristics of patents which make this a valid method are described. Analysis of patents and inventions also provides an indication of the trends of technological development. Various types of industry are examined on the basis of pertinent inventions to support the claim for technology evaluation accuracy. Author

The importance of documentation, compiled as a result of the activity of planning organizations, for the adoption of scientific and technological achievements in the national economy is emphasized. Computerized information retrieval systems are essential for processing planning documentation data to insure mandatory utilization of stored technical information about the level of industrial development, the socio-economic structure of society, and the history of industry and technology.

Computer retrieval and analysis of patent descriptions relevant to company names requires that the numerical code of the firm be the same for all tabulagrams. It is proposed that the first letters of the main words of a company's name are translated into a number for coding. A number code that denotes an abbreviated company name is found by formulating a spectral composition of letters that includes the number of symbols, the letters, the frequency of appearance of a letter at the beginning of the word, actual integral probability, and integral probability in the uniform spectrum. A formula is developed that allows for numerical coding of company names by simple addition of not more than six letters in about 15 seconds by computer. G.G.

some optimal rules for scientific forecasting of possible discoveries is proposed. Various methods are discussed for analyzing experimental research results with consideration of the filtering phenomena of logical means on information obtained from the experiment. It is concluded that the factor ranking method should be supplemented by objective methods of seeking anomalies between research results and its presumed hypothetical explanations.

The Four Cities Program, a pilot demonstration of a new whole-system approach to technology transfer, is discussed. The transfer link, between aerospace engineering and city management, is accomplished directly by pairing a corporation with each of four California cities, assigning a senior staff member as science and technology advisor to each City Manager. Most significant transfers have been in project management and system analysis techniques, though acquisition of new hardware and software has also resulted from the program. Fostering of intor-institutional communications and understanding has beon a major outcome of the effort.

The actual time required to complete construction on military facilities is often greater than the time contractually specified. There are several reasons for these overruns or time extensions: designer changes/errors. user changes, weather, strikos, lato deliverios, etc. These time extensions were studied by examining a sample of contracts throughout CONUS from the time period July 1967 - June 1970. Based on the 221 contracts evaluated it is estimated that for an average contract. an additional 27% of the specified construction time will be allowed as timo extensions

The principal considerations in the planning of airport apron-terminal areas are described. The apron-terminal area is defined as the area limited by the curb on the landside and the taxiway access to the apron on the airside. The major functional areas of the apron-terminal complex (curb. terminal, connector, and apron) are defined and described. The four principal concepts for apron-terminal complexes (pier, satellite, linear, and transporter) are analyzed and evaluated for suitability to specific airport situations, based primarily upon traffic levels, physical limitations, and station characteristics. The final report presents a consolidation of the conclusions, technical, economic, and operational advantages and limitations, and underlying assumptions related to each apron-terminal area complex concept. Included are tabular and graphic materials to help in evaluating concepts.

The author has identified the following significant results. Lake Apopka and three lakes downstream of it (Dora, Eustis. and Griffin) are in an advanced state of eutrophication with high algal concentrations. This feature has shown up consistently on ERTS-1 images in the form of a characteristic water color for those lakes. As expected, EREP photographs also show a characteristic color for those lakes. What was not expected is that Lake Griffin shows a clear pattern of this coloration. Personnel familiar with the lake believe that the photograph does, indeed, show an algal bloom. It is reported that the algal concentration is often significantly higher in the southern portion of the lake. What the photograph shows that was not otherwise known is the pattern of the algal bloom. A similar, but less pronounced, effect is seen in Lake Tohopekaliga. Personnel stationed at Kissimmee reported that there was an algal bloom on that lake at the time of the EREP pass and that its extent corresponded approximately to that shown on the photograph. Again, the EREP photograph gives information about the extent of the bloom that could not be obtained practically by sampling. ERTS-1 images give some indication of this algal distribution on Lake Griffin in some cases, but are inconclusive.

Repping calls for being appointed to sell the product lines of various manufacturers according to certain negotiated conditions. The basic and most difficult part of being a rep is the acquisition of suitable lines. In order to acquire suitable lines, one should advertise oneself in trade publications; study ads by manufacturers requiring reps; and attend trade shows. which are excellent sources for obtaining lines.

It would be more accurate to refer to these systems as inventory control systems, or sales accounting systems, or credit authorization systems that are really data systems for the retail sales industry. One of the data entry points for this retail sales data system is located where the sales transaction takes place.
