   Phase I Abstract   
The development, testing and marketing of a new tool for the short-term (~1 hr) forecasting and warning of severe weather (i.e., tornadoes and large hail), involving the use of multi-spectral .....

   Phase II Abstract   
The results of SBIR Phase I suggest that it will be possible to make much improved short-term severe weather forecasts ("nowcasts") for severe convective storms and especially for tornadoes by using .....
