The proposals to be funded under RFP-1 for the BP oil spill money have been selected for funding. For Louisiana only two proposals were selected, one led by LUMCON and the other by Vijay John from Tulane. Unfortunately, neither proposal from LUGRC was chosen. The next opportunity for funding will be in response to RFP-2 which should be out sometime this year and will be for individual PIs and groups of collaborators.

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

Attached please find the University of New Orleans Export Control Policy and Procedures (AP 28.04), effective July 15, 2011. Export control laws are federal regulations that control the access and transmission of certain information, technologies, and commodities. The laws apply to transmission of controlled items overseas or to a foreign national on U.S. soil. While many University activities are exempt, the consequences of violating export control regulations can be severe for both the University and the individual, and include loss of research funding, fines, and/or prison time. For that reason, it is important that faculty and staff understand their obligation to comply with export control laws and regulations. Faculty and staff are encouraged to review the export control materials located on the UNO Compliance webpage: http://compliance.uno.edu/Home/ExportControl . A good place to start is the MS Power Point presentation on UNO Export Control Basics. Faculty and staff engaged in research should note that, while the campus will assist with export control compliance, the primary responsibility rests with the principal investigator. Additional information and guidance regarding export controls and the obligations of research faculty and staff can be found on the ORSP website: http://w2.uno.edu/orsp/ORSPHome/ExportCompliance. You will also find his and all current Adminstrative Policies at: http://chancellor.uno.edu/OfficeoftheChancellor/AdministrativePolicies

The Technology Innovation Program (TIP) actively seeks input from the public, industry, and research communities. These inputs help to keep TIP abreast of societal challenges and help to focus the Program on areas of critical national need. The white papers presented represent one channel through which these groups communicate to TIP the innovation/research issues and needs they see as critical to the nation. Additionally, the publication of these papers serves to foster national discussion and provide the authors and greater scientific community with the opportunity to identify possible synergies for collaboration. The papers are arranged by topic area and the titles of all papers submitted in each topic are listed. Only those papers for which we received publication permissions are available for viewing. The Publicly Submitted White Paper web page can be found at: http://www.nist.gov/tip/wp/pswp/index.cfm
