The NOAA Technology Partnerships Office, or TPO, serves the needs of both NOAA inventors and U.S. companies looking to partner with NOAA or license our technologies.  Located in Silver Spring, MD, the NOAA TPO oversees both NOAA's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program and the Technology Transfer Program.  The Technology Partnerships Office also provides specific technical and communication/outreach services to all NOAA labs.

ROYALTY FREE:  Bird Deterrent for ASOS Ice Free Wind Sensor

ROYALTY FREE: Bird Deterrent for ASOS Ice Free Wind Sensor


Ice Free Wind Sensors (IFWS) are widely used to measure  and report wind speed and direction, primarily for the aviation industry.  However, the open space around the measurement unit of the wind sensor also provides a convenient space for birds to sit.  The subsequent flapping of wings can result in erroneous wind speeds and missing wind data, which is a safety hazard to aviation.  In an effort to alleviate the IFWS data issues, the National Weather Service (NWS) developed a bird deterrent device. This device, which keeps the birds from interfering in the sample space of the IFWS, has been tested and deployed within the existing network of over 600 sensors in the US and is now being made available royalty free to industry.
