… Personnel at the U.S. Army’s Primary Standards Laboratory (PSL) at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., like many governments, national laboratories, and other organizations, use Primary Voltage Standard Systems to precisely calibrate their electronic systems and components. … The system employed at the PSL incorporates Primary Voltage Standard circuits from Hypres Inc. in Elmsford, N.Y. Hypres’ Primary Voltage Standard circuits were commercialized in a project involving technology transfer from NIST under sponsorship of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.
… “Hypres, at the time, distinguished itself by being the only company in the world that succeeded into turning the inventions of NIST into practical commercial products,” says Elie Track, Ph.D., a senior partner at Hypres Inc. The manufacturing challenge was significant, but Hypres was successful. The company delivers circuits that can be used by customers to build their own system, as well as complete turn-key Primary Voltage Standard Systems.
