  1. 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 ...

  2. (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 ...

  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. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 9201

    TIAX proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a quick tack, long pot life, high strength underwater adhesive formulated to be delivered through a caulk gun like application device. This two part adhesive will pass through a static mixing nozzle during application, removing the need for hand-mixing the adhesive prior to use. Our adhesive will adhere strongly to commonly used artificial and natura ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. ALARM: Adversarially-learned Labels using Activity and Reward Models

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: NGA191006

    Technological advances in navigation and positioning, along with expanding wireless infrastructure and remote sensing technologies, have resulted in an explosive growth of available trajectory data from a variety of moving objects, such as people, cars, ships, or animals. Traditional trajectory mining algorithms do not explain how and why the motion was generated, limiting their utility in GEOINT ...

  8. Gamified Analysis Tasks for Heightened Engagement across Repetitions (GATHER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: NGA191007

    At the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the ability to serve and analyze data is crucial to the success of efforts ranging from disaster relief to strategic military support. NGA recently created the Office of Automation, Augmentation, and Artificial Intelligence (AAA) which has a goal “to automate routine tasks to give crucial time back to employees.” These automated systems mus ...

  9. Innovative methods for detecting and characterizing electrical grid topologies and induced electrical power transient events from lights

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: NGA191010

    STR is proposing to implement monitoring of power grid state via high-speed, wide-field optical photometry. We will design, test, and implement algorithms on commercially available hardware with the intent of deriving grid topology in addition to detecting, characterizing, and geolocating anomalous events. We will also evaluate fusing the photometry-derived data with other data sources available t ...

  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 ...
