  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. Space weather based position error maps for TEC- On-line (SpoT-On)

    SBC: SPACE ENVIRONMENT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 831

    The Space weather-based position error maps for TEC-On-Line (SpoT-On) project will use GPS=GNSS based TEC data, integrated into the Global Assimilation of Ionospheric Measurements (GAIM) operational system at the Utah State University Space Weather Center to product improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A result is that agencies, industry and consum ...

  3. Small UAS Platform for NWS Missions

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841W

    NOAA and in particular, the National Weather Service (NWS), have an unmet need of a cost feasible small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) which can support multiple sensing missions which will either directly save lives or indirectly save lives through improved weather forecasts, warnings and public alerts. NOAA has enumerated two dozen valuable applications of small UAS for itself and partners. Toyon ...

  4. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range Coastal HF Radars Below 11 MHz

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4 – 5.5 MHz frequency band and have nominal offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 3 – 6 km, respectively. The data provided by the network has numerous appl ...

  5. Program for Estimating Whale Migration Statistics

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 816F

    Toyon proposes to develop software that can process infrared video streams to automatically detect gray whale blows. Additionally, the software will count the number of blows and estimate the speed and the number of whales that are present. We will make use of a novel technique for whale blow detection that Toyon has demonstrated on infrared video of humpback whales. The approach makes use of b ...

  6. Micro-fluidic Photometer with Adaptive Mask

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used to convey the particl ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High-Sensitivity, Miniaturized CO Sensor for Airborne Use on Small UAVs

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 835R

    The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI), TruWeather Solutions, LLC., and Latitude Engineering, LLC. propose to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor system for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro sensor approach which has bee ...

  9. HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 841

    Over 300 HF RADARs worldwide are producing ocean surface data that is used in oil spill response, search & rescue, vessel traffic management, and research. In the U.S. there are 100+ systems supplying real-time data to the Coast Guard, NOAA IOOS, OR&R and other operational groups. To provide the highest quality data to stakeholders, systems should be calibrated by measuring the receive antenna p ...

  10. 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 ...
