     1== Motivation for the VeSPA Project ==

    33==== History ====

    5 VeSPA consists of three combined applications called RFPulse, Simulation and Analysis that were migrated from three previous standalone applications:
     5VeSPA was born out the combination of three applications called RFPulse, Simulation and Analysis that were migrated from three previous standalone applications:
    66
    77    * RFPulse <-> [http://www.rrmind.research.va.gov/software/matpulse.asp MatPulse] - software for RF pulse design written in [http://www.mathworks.com/ Matlab]
     
    99    * Analysis <-> IDL_Vespa - a package for spectral data processing and analysis written in [http://www.ittvis.com/ProductServices/IDL.aspx IDL]

    11 ==== Goals ====
     11==== Limitations ====
    1212
    1313The new VeSPA project addresses previous software limitations, including:
     
    1717  * Lack of integration between programs for sharing prior information
    1818  * Incomplete or missing documentation and educational content
     19
     20==== Solutions ====
     21
     22  * Create a free, liberally-licences (BSD) open source MRS toolset
     23  * Build it on top of the Python language with it's vast library of integration tools
     24  * Make sure there are straight forward ways for user community expansion
     25  * Have results saved into a free SQL database (Sqlite) which can be searched and queried
     26  * Enable the export of pulse sequences, experiments, rfpulses, etc. into an XML format that other Vespa users can then Import into their own local Vespa platforms
