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. Plasmid DNA positive control standards for molecular environments assays

    SBC: Pisces Molecular LLC            Topic: 8.4.3

    The proliferation of sensitive DNA-based assays for detecting the presence of specific harmful, toxic or invasive organisms, as well as the simple reagent and instrumentation requirements for these assays has made widespread and more frequent testing for these different organisms possible. However, a frequent problem with such assays is the lack of available, well-quantified positive control stand ...

  2. OpenWater- A citizen science monitoring platform

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8.3.3

    Ensuring the health of coastal marine ecosystems has emerged as one of the primary environmental concerns of this century. Frequent monitoring of water quality is required to establish baseline levels, allow identification of anomalies, and enable early detection of problems. Citizen science programs have been shown to be a highly effective method of monitoring water quality. Creare proposes to de ...

  3. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 8.4.2

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  4. Space weather based position error maps for TEC- On-line (SpoT-On)

    SBC: Space Environment Technologies            Topic: 8.3.1

    The Space weather-based position error maps for TEC-On-Line (SpoT-On) project will use GPS=GNSS based TEC data, integrated into the Global Assimilation of Ionospheric Measurements (GAIM) operational system at the Utah State University Space Weather Center to product improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A result is that agencies, industry and consum ...

  5. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: FOREVER OCEANS CORPORATION            Topic: 8.4.1

    Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor individual environment ...

  6. A Compact and Agile Fixed-Wing UAS for VTOL Shipboard Operations

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8.3.2

    Commercially available unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) are not well designed to meet requirements for many atmospheric measurement applications, including deployment from ships, long endurance, and low cost. Multi-rotor UASs have recently gained popularity as a lowcost platform use in measurement and monitoring applications, but these systems have limited endurance and payload capabilities. Exist ...

  7. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range Coastal HF Radars Below 11 MHz

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 8.2.4

    The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4 – 5.5 MHz frequency band and have nominal offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 3 – 6 km, respectively. The data provided by the network has numerous appl ...

  8. Manual and Automated Marine Weather Observations Using Smartphones

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8.2.6

    Accurate marine weather nowcasts and forecasts are critical requirements for mariners to maintain situational awareness and ensure safe navigation for vessels, passengers, crew, and cargo. To best achieve this, reliable observations of atmospheric and sea conditions must be available at high spatial and temporal coverage. Unfortunately, existing approaches for marine weather observations are inade ...

  9. Automated peak fitting and analysis software for advanced gas chromatography and mass spectrometer systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 8.2.7

    Recent advances in gas chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques for atmospheric measurements have led to highly complex data sets that have overwhelmed the capabilities of current data analysis software. We propose a new method for the automated reduction of chromatographic data using peak-fitting algorithms. By relying upon constrained peak-fit parameterization, accuracy of peak identifi ...

  10. Development of the Low-Altitude Maritime Survey-Sampling (LAMASS) System

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 8.2.8

    In this Phase I effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations, in collaboration with Aerovel, Inc., proposes to assess the feasibility of developing a multi-mission, transdisciplinary manned aerial platform, capable of fulfilling NOAA’s requirement to survey, map and collect on our nation’s natural ecosystems. Combining Aerovel’s experience in UAS development with PEMDAS’ atmospheric sensor ...
