For those interested in sorting through SBIR/STTR solicitations, try the open topic search feature found online at http://www.zyn.com/sbir/. For example, if one were to type in littoral, they would be taken to Navy SBIR 2011.3 Topic N113-175 entitled, “Optical Perception System for Situational Awareness and Contact Detection for Unmanned Surface Vessels.  Topics for this solicitation open on August 29, 2011 and closes on September 28, 2011.  Interested responders may communicate with topic authors up to August 28th. Contact information is provided following a descriptive sketch of the project.
The search system is not perfect, so exercise some caution.  By typing in words such as acoustic, burial, geolocation, and weather, interesting STTR topics should have been identified too. The below topics, which relate to UNO research thrusts, were found by searching the specific Navy STTR solicitation. See if you can find the below topics using http://www.zyn.com/sbir/.
N11A-T012 Emitter Geolocation Enhancements for Time-Sensitive Targeting and Naval Battlespace Awareness
N11A-T017 Underwater Sensor System Autonomous Burial and Operation
N11A-T026 Low cost acoustic transmitter
N11A-T036 Weather and Environmental Software Tool for System Requirements Investigation
