  1. Semi-autonomous Capabilities for the Operation of Unmanned Teams (SCOUT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 9401

    Natural disasters and other severe weather events have the potential to create loss of life and damage property on a large scale. Preparing for and responding to these incidents is a complex, multi-phase process. NOAA’s 2019-2022 Strategic Plan is to achieve the vision of a Weather Ready Nation to reduce the impacts of weather, water, and climate events and harness cutting-edge science, technolo ...

  2. A Tide To Table Traceability and Marketing System for Shellfish Aquaculture.

    SBC: Shellfish Solutions            Topic: 9101

    In 2017 the CDC estimated 35,000 American got sick from Vibrio parahaemolyticus transmitted by shellfish--a 54% increase. However, according to the co-chair of the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Commission, “Our current system of traceback is inadequate.... Records are lost. Handwriting is illegible. More than half of all traceback investigations fail because the information in the value chain ...

  3. OPEN WORLDS NOAA Portal

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: 9302

    Many people recognize how critical it is to understand our weather, climate, and environment. Educators already use NOAA data and models in working with students and their communities as part of their teaching and outreach. With the exponential growth in data, however, many of them struggle with accessing and managing that data. Evolving data formats and computing requirements make it very challen ...

  4. Automated Monitoring of VOCs with a Compact Gas Chromatography-Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometer (GC-mVocus)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 9502

    Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted from a wide variety of biogenic and anthropogenic sources. VOCs transform in the atmosphere, forming ozone and oxygenated VOCs (OVOCs), which in turn can form fine particulates or condense onto preexisting particulate matter (PM). Both ozone and fine PM are deleterious to human health and alter the Earth’s climate. Measurements of (O)VOCs are necessa ...

  5. Automated Fillet Identification

    SBC: CVISION AI INC            Topic: 9205

    We propose to develop a fillet identification methodology using visible imagery that can be collected and processed on commodity hardware such as modern smartphones, dramatically increasing the availability of fillet identification technology. In order to accomplish this, we will gather an annotated data set of fillet pictures, traceable to verifiable whole fish images. Using these pictures, we wi ...

  6. Benthic Mapping of Geological, Biogeochemical and Biodiversity Parameters through an Autonomous Vehicle and Deep Learning Software Workflow

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 9603

    The time has come to integrate the capabilities we have developed for real-time habitat processing on shipboard with the HabCam towed vehicle, into an autonomous vehicle with 3D reconstruction of seafloor topology, substrate classification, single target identification, hyperspectral imaging for physiological information, and plankton classification as an index of ecosystem health. Integrated toge ...

  7. (Anno) Tator Online: A Web Application for Exploration and Curation of Underwater Video and Imagery

    SBC: CVISION AI INC            Topic: 9302

    Using modern web technologies, we will build an application that can be used to explore, enrich, and evaluate the wealth of underwater video and imagery being collected by NOAA and its partners. Existing data portals are primarily for text based or keyword search, and for viewing of existing data, lacking the ability for rich interaction, visualization of metadata, and adding new types of annotati ...

  8. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 9201

    Coral transplantation is a primary management option for rehabilitation of degraded reefs. Stabilization (via adhesion, etc.) of transplants on existing reef or artificial substrates notably improves their survival rate. Improved underwater adhesives are needed for expedient and convenient stabilization of coral transplants with improved survival rate. A new hybrid organic-inorganic adhesive is pr ...

  9. Ship-based Operations for UAS Swarms with Autonomous Pinniped Homing Over Nasty Environments (SOUSAPHONE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 9501

    Small Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) play a critical and growing role in government, military, commercial, and scientific operations across a range of missions such as weather monitoring, natural disaster assessment, surveillance, and infrastructure inspection. Their versatility, maneuverability, and dependability, coupled with their ability to keep operators out of harm’s way, make them critic ...

  10. DeepCTIS: A New Low-Cost Hyperspectrual Imaging Module and Distributed Deep Learning Platform to Combat Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing in the Marketplace at Scale

    SBC: Synthetik Applied Technologies LLC            Topic: 9202

    We propose an innovative yet straightforward approach to developing and delivering a readily deployable product to support combating IUU. We combine newly available low-cost hyperspectral sensors with state-of-the-art deep learning-based real-time data processing and deploy it on high-availability commodity cloud computing hardware - our solution is compatible with both existing systems as well as ...
