SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc. Topic: 94
Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...SBIR Phase II 2014 Department of CommerceNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: 94
A preliminary design of a mobile receiver system for intra-cloud lightning detection, mapping, and tracking was completed and analyzed during the Phase I program. The direction-finding (DF) receiver design is small enough for use on small UAVs and utilizes the full VHF spectrum. The lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LITMUS) design will be finalized, fabricated, assembled, and demonstrated durin ...SBIR Phase II 2014 Department of CommerceNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Automated Detection, Tracking Measurement, and Classification of Fish Observed by Underwater CamerasSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: 92
We propose to develop a system that can automatically detect, track, measure, and classify fish seen in video collected by stationary underwater cameras. Our approach makes use of a novel method for detecting motion that can mitigate false alarms due to swaying underwater vegetation. We propose a novel technique for tracking the fish in three spatial dimensions allowing for improved knowledge of ...SBIR Phase II 2014 Department of CommerceNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
