31. HOSPITAL PATIENT Monitor

Lockheed Aircraft Service Company's patient monitoring system, already installed in hospitals in California, Midwest, and New England, monitors five patients simultaneously. Any change from present limits in patients' heart rates, regularity of beat, or electrocardiogram contour operates an alarm that alerts hospital personnel.

 

32. WEATHER and OCEANOGRAPHIC Data Buoys

Four buoys - one of them 30 feet long - produced by Lockheed Missiles & Space Company have helped the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration learn more about the ocean and about weather at sea. The large buoy and two smaller ones were moored in the Gulf of Mexico and radioed collected data to a Florida shore station, The fourth was used in extensive reliability testing. In company-funded programs, LMSC has built and tested an Ecology Buoy to monitor pollution in inland waters and worked on a drifting buoy to chart ocean currents, Lockheed Ocean Laboratory in San Diego built and tested for NOAA a comparative buoy to check the accuracy of operational buoys.
