Partnering With NOAA
NOAA Labs and Programs are able to engage with the private sector in a variety of research and development activities using the mechanisms below. Contact the NOAA TPO to learn more.
Training and Education
- Cooperative Remote Sensing and Technology Center (CREST): Established in 2001, the NOAA-CREST center is led by The City University of New York and brings together Hampton University, University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, California State University, and University of Maryland Baltimore County, and industrial partners like Raytheon & Northrop Grumman. The CREST vision is to contribute to the development of world-class cadre of faculty, students and researchers that will gain knowledge and expertise in cutting-edge research in science; engineering and technology with special emphasis on satellites and remote sensing of the Earth.
- DigitalCoast: Offers a broad set of training programs, both online and classroom, related to coastal issues including hazards, land use, economy, water quality, planning, and conservation.
- National Weather Service Sterling Field Support Center : The Sterling Field Support Center (SFSC) provides operational support to field personnel through a combination of sensor testing, analysis and contact center support. The SFSC is responsible for the research, testing, and development of a variety of meteorological systems. These systems include the Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS), Radiosonde Replacement System (RRS), and Cooperative Observer Program (COOP).
- Ocean Technology Development Tank: The development and application of advanced ocean observing technologies is rapidly escalating as electronic and optic components become smaller, more capable and less expensive. However, construction of seawater tank facilities for testing and calibrating these new technologies in controlled environments is virtually non-existent. Although several facilities in the U.S. and abroad have some form of a test tank, the SWFSC Ocean Technology Development Tank is the only large sea- and fresh-water test tank facility in the world with thermohaline control. It will fill the gap in developing and testing these technologies so they can be deployed to improve the quality, quantity and efficiency of NOAA’s research and monitoring operations.
