FDF Technology Will Be Delivered Over the Next 12 Months

Paracel Inc., a private company, Monday announced a contract worth several million dollars from the U.S. government to deliver Fast Data Finders (FDF) and associated software for high-volume text filtering and dissemination.

The products ordered will be delivered over the next 12 months.

``This contract represents significant growth in the demand for Paracel's data-filtering products,'' said Kwang-I Yu, chief executive officer of Paracel. ``The government's need to filter and sort high volumes of diverse, multilingual text data is rapidly becoming a requirement for the Internet and corporate intranet markets.''
