The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Technology Partnerships Office (TPO) is a research support office that drives innovation across NOAA. Through its programs, TPO awards grants to small businesses to support technological innovation, manages NOAA’s intellectual property portfolio, helps transfer NOAA technology to the commercial market, and facilitates NOAA’s public-private research partnerships.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an agency that enriches life through science. NOAA's mission is to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, ocean, and coasts, to share actionable information with others, and to conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources. From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, and climate monitoring, to fisheries management, coastal restoration, and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and provide citizens, emergency managers, and other decision makers with the reliable information they need, when they need it.
