43 Appendix B STATEMENT OF TASK The committee wiD explore and assess alternative applications of the Atomic Vapor Laser Isotope Separation (AVLIS) process and imbedded technologies and determine the most promising alternative applications for further efforts. The committee will conduct the study along lines suggested by the following tasks: At the outset of the study, research, industrial, and commercial enterprises, representative of those thought to be likely beneficiaries of AVLIS technology, will be contacted by means of a well-prepared solicitation outlining the capabilities and technologies of AVLIS. This solicitation will seek the identification and preliminary characterization of applications in these settings. The committee, after a thorough introduction to AVLIS technology, will screen the results of the solicitation from task 1 above, and seek the preparation of more detailed presentations of the most · · - promising 1C teas. The Department of Energy will conduct a similar exercise with the national laboratories. DOE will screen these ideas and prepare presentations on the best of these applications for the committee. 4. The committee win, In a series of meetings, receive the results of tasks 2 and 3 and will prepare its evaluation of alternative applications of AVLIS and technologies imb;edded in the AVLIS system. This evaluation will include considerations such as the following: likely research, commercial, and industrial potential; cost; development effort required to realize the application; potential efforts of application on international diffusion of AVLIS technology. The committee will document its findings and recommendations ~ a National Research Council (NRC) report. This report will be subject to NRC review procedures.
