29. CLEAN SWEEP Oil Recovery Device

Oil spills are a problem of public concern Lockheed's CLEAN SWEEP is now used by oil refineries, petrochemical plants, oil spill cooperatives, railroad yards and has been tested in food-processing plants, A very large air-transportable prototype has been built for the Coast Guard to clean up high-seas oil spills. CLEAN SWEEP resembles the paddlewheel of an old river boat. Vanes of the rotating drum pull in surface oil which adheres to metal discs. Stationary wiper blades sweep the oil into a slotted axle from which it is pumped to storage.

 
 

30. REMOTE HEALTH Care System

Lockheed Missiles & Space Company has installed for a two-year test a system that will enable residents of sparsely populated areas far from physicians or a medical facility to receive expert medical care, The STARPAHC (Space Technology Applied to Rural Papago Advanced Health Care) system was developed, built, and installed on the Papago Reservation in Arizona under NASA contract and with the cooperation of the Indian Health Service of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. STARPAHC combines advanced medical instrumentation with computerized data techniques and voice and picture transmission from mobile and fixed-base units. Using the system, specially-trained paramedics will be able to send analytical data to enable physicians at a hospital to diagnose illnesses and prescribe treatment.
