BOULDER, Colo., — December 4, 2009 — ASD Inc. is proud to announce the recipients for the Alexander Goetz Instrument Support Program for the 2010 calendar year. The annual program encourages novel, unconventional and/or fundamental research. The Goetz Program is co-sponsored by ASD Inc. and the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), a member organization of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
Four very worthy project proposals were chosen from those submitted.
