The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

  1. Enabling the Rapid Creation of Custom Predictive Models with GOES-16 and NEXRAD Data

    SBC: Onu Technology, Inc.            Topic: 9401

    NOAA's Big Data Project (BDP) has made several valuable datasets available on major cloud platforms. While a critical step, many organizations that would benefit from the data are not technologically capable of performing state-of-the-art machine learning. We propose to unlock the power of the data for those who can most benefit by developing technology that automatically trains deep learning mode ...

  2. Interactive Visualization of 3D NEXRAD Data in Virtual Reality

    SBC: BADVR Inc.            Topic: 9401

    This project will create a proof-of-concept application that visualizes 3D NEXRAD data from NOAA's Big Data Project inside virtual reality (VR). By integrating unique processing and projection algorithms into low-cost VR headsets, this initiative will increase the accessibility of data to meteorologists, fire departments, and first responders during critical decision-making. During the recent Cal ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Smart Buoy Device to Locate Ropeless Fishing Gear

    SBC: Blue Ocean Gear Inc.            Topic: 9204

    Responsible operation of ropeless fishing gear to avoid whale entanglements must involve a method of retrieval if the gear surfaces at a different place and/or time than expected. Blue Ocean Gear will demonstrate the capability of innovative Smart Buoy devices to detect and locate ropeless buoy systems once they have reached the surface, whether planned or unplanned. This will improve commercial o ...

  5. Autonomous LARS for Subsea Vehicles

    SBC: Marine Advanced Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 9603

    High resolution deep ocean mapping has historically been a cost prohibitive endeavor for all but the most well-funded governments, companies, individuals, and institutions. It is limited by the acquisition and operational costs of the assets required. Fully autonomous solutions have the potential to dramatically lower the acquisition costs and increase access to the data. One of the key missing pi ...

  6. Portable Analyzer for Ultra sensitive Detection and Quantification of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Shellfish

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 9101

    The proposed device is a compact, portable and robust battery-powered analytical instrument for analysis of complex multicomponent mixtures of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in shellfish. The device is based on principles of analytical gas chromatography (GC) and utilizes a novel highly-integrated multisensory detector. Implementation of a multisensory detector allows the device to colle ...

  7. Environmental and Oceanographic Measurement and Data System

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: 9601

    To address the NOAA’s need for cost-effective, highly reliable, readily deployable, platform-independent sensors and observing systems, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (ISI) proposes to develop the new Environmental and Oceanographic Measurement and Data (NOMAD) system based on a new design that utilizes previously developed mature components. Specifically, innovations in low-power and ultra-compact ...

  8. BLOS Kit with Acoustic Sensor for Non-Cooperative Aircraft

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: 9501

    SARA proposes to integrate a Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) system on a NOAA-selected UAS platform. The BLOS system will detect cooperative aircraft as well as non-cooperative aircraft by including SARA’s Passive Acoustic Non-cooperative aircraft Collision Avoidance System (PANCAS). PANCAS is an acoustic system which is low weight, low cost and has a 360-degree field of view. SARA will develop a sa ...

  9. A Multi-Branch Network for Automated VNIIRS Assessment of Motion Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA191003

    Due to the lack of consistency in existing automated methods for assigning VNIIRS levels to motion imagery, and the overwhelming human resources required to manually assign levels, a new method of automated/semi-automated VNIIRS assessment is needed. In recent years, advancements in deep learning have provided solutions to previously intractable computer vision problems. In many cases, automated d ...

  10. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: NGA182001

    To address NGA’s requirements, Sonalysts’ team of world-class experts in underwater optical communication proposes development and implementation of the Precision Optical Navigation Transceiver for Undersea Systems (PONTUS). PONTUS will transfer navigation information from an Underwater Navigation Beacon (UNB) to an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) in an electromagnetic-spectrum-denied (e.g., G ...
