Electronics and Electrical Engineering Laboratory: Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 1999-2004



R. M. Powell


The Electronics and Electrical Engineering Laboratory (EEEL) within the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) strengthens the U.S. economy by providing measurement capability needed to improve the competitiveness of the U.S. electronics and electrical industries. The supported industries are highly important to the U.S. economy, accounting for approximately $700 billion of sales each year. EEEL's measurement capability is used by U.S. manufacturers to conduct research and development toward new products, to manufacture those products, to market them successfully, and to support them after sale. EEEL's strategic plan describes important measurement contributions to the supported industries and the nation. The projects selected result from close interaction with industry and government to identify the needs most important to economic growth and competitiveness.
