The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  2. Development of a Functional Balloon-borne GNSS-RO System Prototype

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    The SBIR Phase II proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in designing, and developing, and testing a system prototype to perform Global Navigation Satellite System radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a high-altitude balloon platform. NCL will continue building from the positive results achieved in Phase I that successfully demonstrated the feasibility of performing balloon-borne GN ...

  3. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 825

    Subsurface mooring beacons are used to provide notifications and assist in locating moored assets that have surfaced and are free drifting. Their nominal design is driven by the requirements for offshore use where they need to survive extreme depths and remote deployment, most often using satellite constellations for communication and geo-location. Existing beacons serve their purpose well, but th ...

  4. Fog Viewer

    SBC: Areté Associates            Topic: 826

    The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to best characterize the ...

  5. Biomimetic Adhesives for Restoration of Coral Reefs

    SBC: WARDENCLYFFE CHEMICALS, INC.            Topic: 9201

    Restoration of coral reefs is dependent upon an ability to adhere young corals, grown in tanks, onto inorganic substrates within the seas. The epoxies in current use do not provide a viable path to restoration owing to poor adhesion underwater, lengthy mixing of components needed, clouds of toxic epoxy precursors released into the water, and extensive diver time needed to clean the underlying cora ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 Cali ...

  8. Autonomous LARS for Subsea Vehicles

    SBC: MARINE ADVANCED RESEARCH 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 collec ...
