  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Development of the Low-Altitude Maritime Survey-Sampling (LAMASS) System

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 828

    In this Phase I effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations, in collaboration with Aerovel, Inc., proposes to assess the feasibility of developing a multi-mission, transdisciplinary manned aerial platform, capable of fulfilling NOAA’s requirement to survey, map and collect on our nation’s natural ecosystems. Combining Aerovel’s experience in UAS development with PEMDAS’ atmospheric sensor ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Development of a portable 3-dimensional variation (3DVAR) data assimilation module for NOAA

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 814

    We propose to develop and deliver a generalized 3DVAR data assimilation module, in an opensource and non-proprietary programming language, which is compatible with both ROMS and FVCOM and easily incorporated into the existing NOAA operational forecast system (OFS). Our innovation is to develop a data assimilation roadmap contrasting 3DVAR with other advanced techniques such as multi-scale 3DVAR, 4 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Design of an Autonomous, Green Powered, Mobile Coastal Monitor

    SBC: Tridentis, LLC            Topic: 821

    The mobile coastal monitor project is designed to research the state-of-the-art green power supplies and apply them as the propulsion and sensor power source for a highly efficient surface platform. The platform will be equipped with a modular sensor bay that is capable of housing a wide variety of atmospheric, air/sea interface, and sub-surface sensors suitable for a wide range of sensing operati ...

  10. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...
