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
This service is provided by Zyn Systems, a technology and management consulting firm specializing in Federal Technology Transfer, SBIR Programs, Commercialization, Technology Outreach Programs, Proposal Evaluations, Contract Monitoring, Conference Management, and the development of Web-based management systems and e-business solutions.

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

Reflecting an overall trend in U.S. export growth, Louisiana’s first quarter 2011 worldwide merchandise exports increased by 47.7 percent in value compared to 2010, according to a report issued today by the World Trade Center of New Orleans. At almost $15 billion, it is the highest single-quarter on record, exceeding the fourth quarter of 2010 by more than $1 billion. Total U.S. exports were up 18 percent for the quarter, with Louisiana surging to 4th in state rankings, compared to 8th for the same period in 2010. Only Texas, California, and New York ranked ahead of Louisiana in value of exports. Among the top ten exporting states, Louisiana had the highest rate of growth. Louisiana’s principal export markets for the first quarter were China ($2.35 billion), Mexico ($1.28 billion), and the Netherlands ($926 million), followed by Japan, Korea, Egypt, and Canada.

The PH/TBI Research Program was established in FY07 for the purpose of complementing ongoing Department of Defense (DOD) efforts towards promoting a better standard of care for PH (including post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]) and TBI in the areas of prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. This includes research to benefit service members, their family members, veterans, and other beneficiaries of the Military Health System (MHS). A total of $586 million (M) has been appropriated to support biomedical research focused on PH/TBI research efforts from FY07 through FY11, with $341.6M being assigned to the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). The FY11 appropriation that has been assigned to USAMRMC is $100M. Approximately $5M of this appropriation has been assigned to the USAMRMC, Military Operational Joint Program Committee 5 for this Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity. The execution agent for this solicitation is the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).
