Example text

As of February 2002, a set of draft criteria (in the three categories: fit to mission, impact, and probability of success) had been defined. The laboratory plans to begin applying these criteria to selected projects with the primary goal of testing the criteria and a secondary goal of evaluating the projects. The panel applauds the laboratory’s efforts to develop a more objective and quantitative approach to choosing projects. The panel also supports the laboratory’s plan to evolve the criteria after testing their effectiveness on actual projects.

A new, more compact, robust, and transportable device is being developed for this purpose. As part of this effort, new devices were developed such as the stray light elimination tube, a baffled cylinder to reduce stray light entering the viewing detector. Some of the most important products from this project are documentary standards. 0” was published in 2001 as a Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) document, illustrating the close working relationship EEEL has established with this industry.

For the previous assessment (fiscal year [FY] 2001), EEEL had produced a strategic plan containing a statement of vision and mission and a concise list of values. During the past year, EEEL expanded this plan to explicitly delineate the laboratory’s role and the factors that enable it to meet its mission. These factors include EEEL’s focus on making unique contributions; on having an impact on productivity and competitiveness; and on serving substantial industries, through which NIST technologies can have a significant economic effect.
