91-01-0041 – NANOPHASE
"Although my company is still very small in revenue size," Robert Cross, the president and chief executive officer of NTC, stated after completion of the ATP project, "we are now the world's leader in the production and marketing of nanocrystalline materials for a wide range of important applications. It was not always that way, and it would not have been possible were it not for the support of the ATP.”
94-02-0010 – STRONGWELL
"Without ATP funding, we could not have developed the process for creating high-performance composite shapes," stated Mr. Glen Barefoot, head of corporate marketing.
94-05-0018 – HYSEQ,
According to Mr. Deane Little, Director of Corporate Communications for Hyseq, "The ATP award kept the company going. Without the award, Hyseq never would have done the SBH platform" and never would have developed the HyChip.
91-01-0112 – X-RAY
OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC
"Without the ATP project, X-Ray Optical Systems (XOS) would be at least a decade behind where it is today," Mr. Gibson, chief executive officer of XOS, stated. "And any commercial success from these new technologies most likely would not have originated in the U.S."
94-04-0024 – BELMONT
Belmont's Jeremy Poole stated, "Without ATP funding, a development group of our size would not have proceeded with such a large and complex project."
93-01-0205 – PHYSICAL
"None of this would have ever happened without ATP," said Rick Shie of Physical Optics Corporation (POC). Mr. Shie was referring to POC's opportunity to pursue its idea that although the development of holographic technology was important, incorporating the improvements into useful devices was key. With ATP funding, POC honed the exacting science of holographic diffusers and made it reliable.
94-04-0027 – 3M
COMPANY HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEMS
According to 3M, "The work that was accomplished with the help of ATP in the Information Infrastructure for Healthcare focused program, along with access to NIST technologists with standards experience, gives us the capability to respond to market needs."
94-04-0046 – SURGENCY
(formerly Benchmarking Partners)
According to Benchmarking Partners, "The market success of collaborative forecasting and replenishment and the recent commercial investment in Benchmarking Partners demonstrates the effectiveness of programs like the Advanced Technology Program. By identifying and supporting innovation at the pre-commercial stage, ATP grants allow companies like Benchmarking Partners to take substantial risks and develop new market opportunities.”
