Small businesses a medium for high technology advance
A device that measures air turbulence from the ground – instead of using costly rockets and balloons – may someday trace its inception to Dove Electronics Inc. in Rome. Meanwhile, computers that can analyze and store data from newspaper articles, legal papers, and other non-computer formats may emerge through Knowledge Systems Concepts Inc also in Rome.

Rome inventor tracks wind
With airline passenger safety a major concern these days, John Dove believes a product that his electronics firm has developed to track air turbulence is ready to take off. Known as HOLODAR – short for holographic radar – the optical sensor system measures atmospheric conditions like wind speed, direction, and turbulence. Dove, the owner of Dove Electronics, figures the system’s commercial applications could include uses by airports and airlines to check wind speeds and packets, and advise planes of conditions before takeoff. If the idea sells, it could improve air travel safety and speed up departures, Dove said.
