The Welding Panel, SP-7 completed another year of activity September 30, 1984. I believe that it can be safely said that we have had a good year and in the next few minutes, I will go over our panel activities for the year, let you know what is presently happening and give you the panel outlook for the future. At the beginning of Fiscal Year FY 1984, the SP-7 Panel had six projects in progress and seven projects approved and funded but not underway. During the course of the year, one of the projects - Evaluation of the Unimation Apprentice Robot - was terminated prior to completion because preliminary studies indicated that any potential benefit this equipment may have had for shipbuilding welding had been far surpassed by existing robot welding technology.
