Four schematics of the Wright brother's flying machine. The word "Transports" appears in white letters. A black and white photo of the brothers obscures the two schematics on the right.
A stylized image of an electrical circuit in neon blue. The word "Connects" appears in white letters. A stylized image of an Internet URL reading http://www. appears.
Screen fades to black. A white light flashes. Numerous images emerge: a radar screen, coordinates, interspersed with video of scientists working in their labs and in front of computers. The words "Today's innovation is ...", in white letters, rush in from the background.
The words "LIGHT-SPEED" appear in a flash of light.
"GLOBAL". An image of the Earth taken from space is in the background. More images swim past of scientists adjusting various machine dials, building devices and peering into complex instruments.
"MULTIDISCIPLINARY". Images of an oscilloscope and dials being adjusted move past. "ULTRAPRECISE".
A gloved scientist stands before a table covered with sample trays. A scientist fits a piece to a large machine. "INTERDEPENDENT"
Screen fades to black.
"NIST POWERS INNOVATION"
The words "SMART GRID" appear flanked by an image of a researcher aiming an optical detector with "Standards" superimposed and another image of a schematic with "Interoperability" superimposed.
"CYBERSECURITY" flanked by an image of NIST director Patrick Gallagher speaking at the CyberMaryland Summit with "Best Practices" and an image of a keycard being swiped with "Coordination".
