NOAA Technology Transfer Awards

Each year, NOAA's Technology Partnerships Committee selects individual projects as the best examples of technology transfer from across all NOAA's Line Offices and Programs.  The purpose of this award is to recognize NOAA scientific, engineering, and technical employees for: (1) inventions or other outstanding scientific or technological contributions of value to the United States due to commercial applications and (2) exemplary activities that promote the domestic transfer of science and technology developed within NOAA and result in the use of such science and technology by American industry or business, universities, State or local Government, or other non-Federal parties. The current awardees are listed below.  Past years' awardees have been archived in the News & Successes section of the website.
