Tracking and identifying metal objects can prove difficult for some radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. A patent-pending technology developed by a research team at the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at North Dakota State University, Fargo, could solve these RFID tracking problems. The antennaless RFID tag developed at CNSE could help companies track products as varied as barrels of oil to metal cargo containers.

Congress Approves Six-Year SBIR Reauthorization


After 14 short-term continuing resolutions and years of negotiations, the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Tranfer (STTR) programs have been reauthorized through 2017. The legislation changes a number of features of SBIR/STTR, including making it possible for companies that are majority-owned by venture capital firms to receive awards. President Obama is expected to sign the bill in the near future.

SBIR Reauthorization on the Verge of Passage


House Small Business Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) and House Science, Space and Technology Committee Chairman Ralph Hall (R-TX) announced that a deal to reauthorize the SBIR/STTR program, which was set to expire on December 16th, has been agreed upon. Legislation to reauthorize the program will be included as an Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

N.D. leaders meet with FAA to urge making Grand Forks UAS hub


North Dakota leaders met with a top Federal Aviation Administration official today to push for making Grand Forks the premier northern hub for unmanned aerial systems operations.

The state leaders presented a proposal to integrate UAS into the National Airspace by using groups and infrastructure already in place in North Dakota. The congressional delegation has worked to include provisions in the FAA Reauthorization bill that would allow the FAA to work with the military to integrate the aircraft and establish test sites and training centers, one of which could end up in Grand Forks.
