From Lab to Market: Accelerating Research Breakthroughs and Economic Growth

From Lab to Market: Accelerating Research Breakthroughs and Economic Growth

Earlier this month, President Obama announced his 2015 budget, a road map for accelerating economic growth, expanding opportunity for all Americans and ensuring fiscal responsibility. The budget supports the President’s Management Agenda to deliver a 21st century government that is more effective, efficient, and supportive of economic growth. One key element of the President’s Management Agenda is accelerating the transfer of Federally funded research from the laboratory to the commercial marketplace – a “Lab-to-Market” agenda.

NOAA's Expendable BathyThermograph (XBT) - Innovation for Taking the Ocean's Temperature

NOAA's Expendable BathyThermograph (XBT) - Innovation for Taking the Ocean's Temperature

An eXpendable BathyThermograph (XBT) is a probe that is dropped from a ship and measures the temperature as it falls through the water. A very thin wire transmits the temperature data to the ship where it is recorded for later analysis. The probe is designed to fall at a known rate, so that the depth of the probe can be inferred from the time since it was launched.
