  1. Under Keel Clearance Management in Support ofPrecision Navigation

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: WR’s approach involves design of a modular, S-129 compliant Under Keel Clearance - Risk Management System (UKC-RMS). This will allow for the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), ECS, PPUs, and other situational awareness applications to have S-129 Exchange Sets developed for a planned route.In WR’s design, a system such as an ECDIS generates an S40X Rout ...

  2. The Marine Debris and Small Object Mapping (DSOM) Radar System)

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 824D

    The DSOM system realized in a Phase II effort will provide a modular, compact and reconfigurable system with the ability to provide unique and new information about the scene of interest (e.g. temporal and height information) when compared with traditional SAR sensors. When compared with other imaging technologies, DSOM has the important advantages of being operable through cloud cover and at nigh ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Mariner Report Application (MARApp): Crowdsourcing Maritime Weather Conditions

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: During Phase I, Metron designed and implemented an efficient, scalable, end-to-end prototype system for collecting, storing, and viewing mariner weather observations: the Mariner Report App (MARApp). The MARApp Client is a mobile application that transforms smartphones and tablets at sea into forward geospatial/environmental sensors. It can take weather measurements from sensor ...

  5. Mariner Report Application (MARApp): Crowdsourcing Maritime Weather Conditions

    SBC: Liteweaver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 826

    Metron proposes a software framework for crowd-sourcing weather observations in a maritime environment leveraging personal mobile devices. Our proposed App, the Mariner’s Report App (MARApp), draws data from existing sensors in modern smartphones and tablets, as well as meteorological sensors normally found on small marine vessels. Our architecture is modular, extensible, and readily adaptable t ...

  6. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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 mini ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Fish Trap Extension Kit for Lionfish Control

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 822N

    R3 Digital Sciences (R3-DS) will develop and commercialize the Fish Trap Extension Kit (FTEK), and electromechanical device that will extend the capabilities of existing fish traps, and convert them from indiscriminate traps into “smart traps” capable of targeting specific fish types. To eliminate lionfish bycatch, the FTEK will enable existing commercial spiny lobster traps to autonomously de ...

  9. Engineering Structures for Offshore Macroalgae Farmingar System)

    SBC: CA Goudey & Associates            Topic: 812F

    This project continues our development of innovative systems for farming macroalgae on the high seas. We will identify suitable sites in Nantucket Sound to demonstrate our system and determine the associated environmental parameters including depths, currents, and waves. By combining that information with load and acceleration data from our Phase I wave-basin tests, we will refine the structural d ...

  10. Development of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) Application

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 834

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Phase I effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to assess the feasibility of developing an innovative tool that allows forecasters to easily provide real-time threat tracking information to be used by the public to confirm the existence and location of a weather- or water-related hazards in a m ...
