The author gratefully acknowledges the support of all who have contributed
to the project. These are mainly the personnel listed in the Summary of
Activities. At Sandia, special recognition is also due to J.A. Davis and G.J.
Simmons for solving a difficult problem in binary sequences early in the project.
The solution was essential to the development of bi-level coding.
In the author's experience, funds spent on research at U.S. universities have
hours. In the present case, we have spent less than the cost of one Sandia FTE
(that is, one Sandia man-year), and have obtained several man-years of research
by talented researchers at three universities. The author is especially grateful to
professors N. Magotra and N. Ahmed, and to students Giridhar Mandyam, Wes
McCoy, and Dr. Li Zhe Tan at UNM, to professor W.B. Mikhael and students
YousefNijim, Alan Berg, Shomit Ghosh, and Arun Ramaswamy at UCF, and to
professor D.M. Etter and student Jonathan Haines at UC Boulder. The work and
ideas of these individuals constitute the major portion of this project. The author
is also grateful for the interest and contributions of other faculty, including
professors R.L. Kirlin at the University of Victoria, G. Coutu at the Hartford
Graduate Center, and M. Fargues at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey.
In addition, the author is grateful to Dr. C.R. Hutt and Ms. C.V. Peterson at the
USGS Albuquerque Seismological Laboratory for their contributions of data and
Finally, in Organization 9300, the author thanks Frank Nutt for rescuing the
project from financial confusion by providing timely and accurate financial data
for the past year. At Sandia, such data has been difficult to obtain. Also, thanks
go to Mark Hedemann, Manager, Dept. 9311, for providing leadership and
support for the final phase of the project.
Here’s what’s next.
