NOAA Awards FY14 SBIR Phase I Contracts

The Department of Commerce (DOC), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, awarded 11 Phase I contracts for FY 2014.  These awards are up to $95,000 each, and totaling approximately $1,045,000.  The awards are for a six-month effort to demonstrate the feasibility of innovative approaches to the research topics identified in the “DOC/NOAA SBIR Program Solicitation for FY 2014 (NOAA 2014-1).”  

The SBIR program is highly competitive.  A total of 76 proposals were received by DOC/NOAA in response to its FY 2014 solicitation.  Internal and external scientists and/or engineers independently reviewed the proposals.  With the funds available, only 11 were selected for an award.  Final selection was based upon the results of the reviews, relative importance to DOC/NOAA needs, relationship to on-going research, and potential for commercialization.  Abstracts of the successful Phase I proposals submitted under this solicitation, and brief comments on their anticipated results can be found here.
