The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders,

National Institutes of Health, has a requirement to design, develop,

and evaluate in laboratory-based and field-trial studies, innovative

speech processing strategies for hearing aids.  The focus will be on

new and creative approaches; although it may include the evaluation

of recently developed strategies using existing technologies such as

multiple microphone arrays, automatic signal processing technologies

(e.g., fixed-frequency or level-dependent frequency response,

compression amplification), and programmable hearing aids employing

digital processing.  Wearable speech processors will be developed for

use in field trials.  A four-year cost-reimbursement type contract is

anticipated.  The solicitation is scheduled to be issued on or about

May 16, 1994.  Proposals will be due 45 days after the date of

issuance of the solicitation.  All responsible sources may submit a

proposal that will be considered by the Government.


Copies of the solicitation may be obtained by sending a written

request to:
