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, ďOptical 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

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).

I recently distributed to those on campus that I feel are eligible to respond to the NIH IDeA Call for Papers and Limited Competition. Below is the eligibility section. Some of our eligible disciplines would be bioengineering, Medicinal Chemistry, Bioinformatics, PSYC and BIOS. If you are interested and did not receive notice, please contact me at vcresearch@uno.edu. The applicant institution for an IDeA-CTR Program will be an Academic Health Center in an IDeA-eligible state (the list of states and other eligibility requirements can be found in Section III. Eligibility Information). For the purposes of this FOA, an Academic Health Center is defined as a post-baccalaureate graduate degree granting institution, or an affiliated organization, with ongoing research and/or academic programs in the biomedical sciences (e.g., medicine and its related basic and clinical specialties, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, biostatistics, epidemiology, and/or bioengineering).
