Abstract : During the time period from 16 June thru 16 September 1983, feasibility of the proposed main flux method of the Phase II Proposal was established. Several different prototype implementations of the method are now available. First comparative tests demonstrated the superior performance of the prototypes as compared to two competing instruments. An IBM Personal Computer including analog interface circuitry was purchased. A predictive coding algorithm was implemented.
