The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. L-Band Radio Frequency Interference Filtering

    SBC: Adaptive Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 8.4.4

    In Phase 1, Adaptive Dynamics Inc. (ADI) propose to do a PHY layer MATLAB simulation and optimization of the 'IMPS' Wideband MAGIC® Interference Mitigation (IM) filter for NOAA. This will demonstrate the feasibility and performance of the IMPS Wideband MAGIC® IM filter algorithm in effectively identifying and separating out unwanted interference from the desired signal of interest (SOI), without ...

  2. Ethane/isotopic methane CRDS analyzer

    SBC: Entanglement Technologies            Topic: 8.3.3D

    Entanglement Technologies, Inc. (ET) proposes to develop a gas analyzer for ethane and isotopologues of methane to study of methane sources and sinks, using cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS). Methane is an important contributor to global climate change, and a participant in air pollutant reactions such as ozone. Understanding methane sources, sinks, and transport between them is crucial to pred ...

  3. Visual Ontological Language for Technical Standards (VOLTS)

    SBC: Aztera, LLC            Topic: 9.01.02.73-R

    Current research shows that failures in the standardization process are often the result of a failure of the participants to communicate or organize. To this effect, NIST has developed a tool, NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards (NOVIS), with an environment for visualizing, browsing, and querying standards. Aztera will create a Computer Aided Standards Development (CASD) framewo ...

  4. Secure Email Agent Using the Domain Name System (DNS) as a Trust Infrastructure

    SBC: Vesaria LLC d/b/a Grier Forensics            Topic: 9.02.03.77-R

    Although protocols for securing email have been available for over twenty years, these protocols, by nature of their use of asymmetric cryptography, require users to have the public key or certificate of the correspondents. Grier Forensics will develop technology to use the Domain Name System (DNS) to distribute certificates and keys, making email secure, authenticated, and confidential, curbing t ...

  5. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera

    SBC: Amethyst Research Inc            Topic: 8.6.1X

    Methane, is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas whose atmosphere concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm. Methane is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Even though its concentration in the atmosphere is more than 200 times lower than carbon dioxide, methane is responsible for 20% of the greenhouse effect. The main natural resources for methane include wetlands, termites and the o ...

  6. Optimized CO2 Gas Sensor for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: Dioxide Materials            Topic: 8.2.2R

    The objective of the proposed work is to create low cost, low power sensors for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. In our Phase I effort, we showed that Dioxide Materials’ miniature CO2 sensors have the speed and sensitivity to meet NOAA’s requirements for sensing ocean carbon. The objective of the proposed work is to further develop the sensors so that they can be used directly in NOAA ...

  7. Automated Analysis of Fisheries Information from Digital Stills

    SBC: Toyon Research Corporation            Topic: 8.2.1F

    Toyon proposes development of a system which performs automated analysis of images for fish population monitoring and fishing regulation enforcement application. The proposed system is capable of processing images collected from autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), as well as images collected using electronic monitoring (EM) cameras used to observe fish catc ...

  8. Developing and Improving Commercial Marine Algal Culture in the United States

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 8.1.1F

    Maine Fresh Sea Farms (MFSF) will build a multi-species, multi-season prototype farm with the goal of having crops of fresh sea vegetables available throughout the year. What isn’t utilized fresh will be dried for longer-term storage and used in other products. Our team will gather data on water quality, nutrients, light levels, and hydrodynamics to assemble profiles of key parameters that deter ...

  9. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technology, Inc            Topic: 8.4.1D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  10. Self-Contained Sub Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 8.1.2N

    The goal of this project is to develop, prototype, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, survey, and structural health monitoring application. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages publically available GNSS reference data from exis ...
