  1. A Compact Turbo-Rankin Energy Conversion System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    Creare is developing a miniature power system for NOA weather monitoring stations in remote locations. This system can provide electric power continuously from naturally occurring temperature differences that exist between ambient air and water in environments such as the Arctic Ocean and the Great Lakes. Generating power directly from these temperature difference uses the atmosphere and ocean/lat ...

  2. Developing a robust and scalable calibration approach to low-cost AQ sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Poor air quality represents a major public health risk, contributing to an estimated one of every eight deaths worldwide. Low-cost air quality sensors have developed rapidly over the last few years and offer the opportunity to make air quality monitoring widespread at an affordable price. However, low-cost sensors are currently unable to deliver accurate, reliable data due to a lack of understandi ...

  3. OpenORB Low-Cost Mooring Location Beacon for Costal Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Triton Systems, Inc. proposes development of the Open-Source Oceanographic Asset Recovery Beacon (OpenORB) that will allow the deployment of coastal instrumentation moorings with affordable protection against loss. This open-source kit would significantly reduce the purchase price of a commercial location beacon by allowing the end-user to assemble a customized system with minimal time and effort. ...

  4. Phase II Commercialization of HABStats: A Harmful Algal Bloom Species, Toxin and Total Phytoplankton Identification System

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 821

    In Phase I, we developed a prototype instrument for counting, sizing and identifying both non-toxic and toxic Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) species. We did this by integrating three innovative technologies: High-throughput color, Light Field Imaging Flow Cytometry to acquire morphological information for each cell, Raman spectroscopy to acquire species-specific molecular information on pigments and tr ...

  5. 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. ...

  6. 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, ...

  7. Riptide Hypoxic Zone AUV

    SBC: Riptide Autonomous Solutions, LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Buoyancy driven oceanographic gliders, although reasonably cost effective, have challenges operating in the zones due to high gradients in water density. Under this topic, Riptide will provide a cost-effective autonomous undersea vehicle (AUV) design leveraged from Riptide's family of man-portable AUVs that can more effectively map the hypoxic areas. The stated goals of this to ...

  8. Clean Energy Source to Power NOAA Long-termObservation and Monitoring Networks

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Creare proposes to develop a self-sustained small-scale power conversion system to power NOAA’s weather monitoring network stations located in harsh uninhabited locations. Our miniature heat engine will take advantage of the existing year-round thermal gradients found between water and air in Arctic regions. Our baseline approach is the development of a compact Turbo-Rankine ...

  9. Harmful Algal Bloom Species, Toxin and Total Phytoplankton Identification System (HABStats) for HandHeld, Remotely Networked or Submersible Operation

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 821

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and commercialize the next generation of low cost, low power, ruggedized, and accurate phytoplankton single cell and whole colony counting, characterization and classification system called HABStats. We will accomplish this using the following three unique and innovative approaches: 1) High-throughput color, Light Field Imaging Flow Cytometry to acquire mo ...
