Abstract

Innovations that reduce the costs and improve the outcomes of medical care, improve the clarity of wireless communications, and enhance the quality of manufactured products are among the many significant achievements supported by the Advanced Technology Program (ATP).This review of the first group of completed projects suggests that billions of dollars are likely to flow into the U.S. economy, greatly exceeding the ATP's investment. Thus, the ATP appears to be on track in fulfilling its mission to stimulate economic growth by helping American companies and their research partners overcome significant technical challenges to produce economically valuable new technologies. The details are contained in this report.
