Recommendation: To improve the management of NIST
interagency agreements and provide reasonable assurance that NIST
is efficiently using its resources and complying with applicable fiscal laws, the Secretary of Commerce should direct the NIST
Director to meet its responsibilities in ensuring the proper use of federal funds, (a) develop, implement, and communicate to its clients policies regarding reasonable time frames for beginning work on interagency agreements; (b) track and monitor the work start date for each agreement; and (c) monitor and report internally, and periodically inform federal clients about, the amount of time elapsed between when funds were advanced to it from client agencies and when it actually began billing against an agreement.
With further improvements since they submitted their new report, the NIST
researchers have made a clock that's about 10 times as precise as the world's cesium standard, Bergquist says.
provides a force calibration service whereby the response [R.
ATP's goal is to bridge the gap between the research lab and the marketplace by stimulating prosperity through innovation.
The Quantitative Infrared Database, NIST
Standard Reference Database 79, is available from the NIST
Standard Reference Data Program for $240.
is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.
Such identification does not imply recommendation or endorsement by NIST
, nor does it imply that the materials or equipment identified are necessarily the best available for the purpose.
Before each implosion, the NIST
team places as many as dozens of battery-powered transmitters at various locations within the condemned building.
evaluated the candidate algorithms and received invaluable assistance from cryptographers at computer security companies and universities around the world.
Tenable's Security Center, Passive Vulnerability Scanner and Nessus Vulnerability Scanner all currently provide support for NIST
's CVSS scores, and our research team is actively engaged with NIST
on scoring for new vulnerabilities.
While the NIST
package is petite enough, it remains too power hungry.
Consequently, this combination of NIST
services is the most cost-effective calibration process for those customers who need detector calibration at more than one power level.
The repository has been updated to reflect the most recent changes to the NIST
800 series, including: NIST
800-18 system security plan (SSP) support; NIST
800-53 Rev 1 controls; Assessment Procedures documented in NIST
800-53A are now included as the validation test procedures for NIST
A team of researchers from NIST
have met a major milestone in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) program by successfully microfabricating a cesium (Cs) vapor cell with a volume of less than 10 m[m.
At the urging of Ols and other ATF forensic scientists, therefore, a team of NIST
researchers has designed "standard bullets.
