  1. A Universal Graphical Geospatial Interface

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: N/A

    "Fetch Technologies (FT) proposes to build a geospatial catalog system that will not just tell you which products are available, but also allow the user to see the actual products and the relationship to other products. Customers will be better enabled todetermine exactly which products contain the information they need and then order those products from NIMA. One of the key pieces of technology u ...

  2. Adaptive mask flow photometer

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used t ...

  4. Automated Assessment of Urban Environment Degradation for Disaster Relief andReconstruction

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181004

    Toyon Research Corp. proposes development of a system that automates disaster assessment based on fusion of overhead and ground-basedimages, video, and other data. In Phase I, we will investigate various possible data sources and the benefits of fusing the data in automatedanalysis. We will select and curate data for processing in a Phase I feasibility study. Damage assessment will be performed in ...

  5. Bayesian Urban Degradation Assessment

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: NGA181004

    To address the NGA need for algorithms that fuse observables from over-flight operations and from ground sources to automatically estimatethe degradation of urban environments due to battle damage or natural disasters, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (ISS) proposes to develop a newBayesian Urban Degradation Assessment (BUDA) software system. It is based on the integration of multiple damage assessment ...

  6. Blending Ground View and Overhead Models

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA181008

    We propose to build ARGON, the ARet Ground-to-Overhead Network. The network will ingest analyst-supplied ground-level imagery ofobjects and retrieve instances of those objects in overhead collections, providing tips back to the analysts. A proprietary method of trainingthe network, leveraging in-house capabilities, data sources, and tools, will be critical to its success. During Phase I, we will p ...

  7. Clean Energy from Air-Sea Temperature Differences

    SBC: SEATREC, INC.            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We will demonstrate the feasibility and commercial applicability of a novel energy harvesting system that converts thermal energy from air-sea temperature differences into electricity. This capability will extend the endurance and capability of NOAA observing platforms, reduce lithium battery waste, increase human and environmental safety, and support efforts to detect and moni ...

  8. Compact, Lightweight Open-Path Cavity RingdownSpectrometry System for UAS Deployment

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to miniaturize the patented, open-path cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) analyzer developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The resulting instrument will be used to measure the optical properties of aerosols aboard Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) in highly humidi ...

  9. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture Operations

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: InnovaPrep proposes to develop a rapid sample-to-answer monitoring system for detecting pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. An assessment of industry needs will include a kickoff meeting with NOAA and a visit to Toby Island Bay Oyster Farm. Following the assessment and report, a TRL-4 breadboard prototype system will be developed that will include the combination of sample ...

  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 ...
