In August 2009 the company received a US$516,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to develop "real-time algorithms for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) from documents. This real-time recognition (RT/OCR) system, to be fully developed under this SBIR award, performs recognition an order of magnitude faster than current commercial systems..."[8]
