  1. Open Water- A Citizen Science Monitoring Platform

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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 and enable early detection of problems. Citizen science programs have been shown to provide a highly effective method of monitoring water quality. Creare is developing an open-sou ...

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

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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. Existing multi-rotor systems suffer from limited payload and endurance. Existing fixed wing systems offer improved endurance and payload, but require significant support h ...

  3. Manual and Automated Marine Weather Observations Using Smartphones

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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 ob ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing Process Monitoring and Control Technologies

    SBC: FLIGHTWARE INC            Topic: DLA181002

    The In Process Control for L-PBF (IPCL) program leverages and in process inspection method recently developed and successfully demonstrated for NASA. This Layer Topographic Map or LTM method measures the surface if every melt layer using a commercial laser profilometer. LTM software detects, locates and identifies flawed regions within a layer for every layer in the part. It does so for several co ...

  8. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  9. Autonomous Meteorological Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA and the National Weather Service maintain an immense network of automated maritime, surface, and upper-air observing stations throughout the world and at great expense. These automated stations provide regularly updated data for both short-term weather prediction and long-term climate models. Maritime and surface observations occur as frequently as every 10 to 20 minutes, ...

  10. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...
