  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Semi-autonomous Capabilities for the Operation of Unmanned Teams (SCOUT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 9401

    Natural disasters and other severe weather events have the potential to create loss of life and damage property on a large scale. Preparing for and responding to these incidents is a complex, multi-phase process. NOAA’s 2019-2022 Strategic Plan is to achieve the vision of a Weather Ready Nation to reduce the impacts of weather, water, and climate events and harness cutting-edge science, technolo ...

  4. Development of Native Kelp Culture System Technologies to Support Sea Vegetable Aquaculture in New England Coastal Waters

    SBC: OCEAN APPROVED, LLC            Topic: 817

    This Phase II research expands Phase I research on Saccharina latissima and is to design and develop “seed” nursery methodologies for the development of commercial-scale production of juvenile kelp plants including Alaria esculenta and Laminaria digitata. The project objectives include: 1. Isolate and maintain cultures of New England species of Alaria esculenta and laminaria digitata to be use ...

  5. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  6. Developing Regional GIC Hazard Tools for Power Utility Planning and Operations

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 9302

    Geomagnetically induced current (GIC) hazard is a recognized threat to the United States power system. Federal models to support hazard specification and prediction for critical infrastructure are at an advanced state, including models of space weather, the Earth’s conductive structure, and regional geoelectric field. We propose to use existing NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (NOAA-SWPC) mo ...

  7. Connected shellfish grading system and integrated data management platform

    SBC: Ward Aquafarms LLC            Topic: 9101

    The project will develop a low-cost, connected, sorting system which utilizes smart cameras to measure dozens of oysters per minute, in three dimensions, and then sort into different size classes based on those data. Utilizing low-cost technology significantly reduces labor costs, while increasing the number of product offerings and simultaneously improving the reliability of each oyster grade. Th ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Automated Monitoring of VOCs with a Compact Gas Chromatography-Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometer (GC-mVocus)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 9502

    Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted from a wide variety of biogenic and anthropogenic sources. VOCs transform in the atmosphere, forming ozone and oxygenated VOCs (OVOCs), which in turn can form fine particulates or condense onto preexisting particulate matter (PM). Both ozone and fine PM are deleterious to human health and alter the Earth’s climate. Measurements of (O)VOCs are necessa ...

  10. Automated Fillet Identification

    SBC: CVISION AI INC            Topic: 9205

    We propose to develop a fillet identification methodology using visible imagery that can be collected and processed on commodity hardware such as modern smartphones, dramatically increasing the availability of fillet identification technology. In order to accomplish this, we will gather an annotated data set of fillet pictures, traceable to verifiable whole fish images. Using these pictures, we wi ...
