  1. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: CARR ASTRONAUTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 84

    NOAA has identified a problem with the display and usability of satellite imagery on NWS websites. This proposal provides analysis of the feasibility and usability of a proposed system to address this concern. Our goal in the project is to create a heuristically sound conceptual design and tool set for display and interaction with satellite imagery on the NWS site. The project will also explore ...

  2. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 91

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA and its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associated proposes to implement an advanced algorithm to derive bath ...

  3. Climate Impact Visualization Tools using 3D City for Community-Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 93

    To build a climate-smart and resilient nation, we need to foster a climate-literate public that understands its vulnerabilities to a changing climate and makes informed decisions. A core component of this challenge is to develop simple, intuitive and high-impact visualizations of climate data--data that is and will be made available through the President’s Climate Data Initiative--for education ...

  4. Buoy Guard System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: 93

    Buoy vandalism occurs all over the world for many different reasons, and costs NOAA and other buoy operators an estimated $1 million annually to replace and repair them. To deter vandals and report any vandal attempts to NOAA, McQ has developed the Buoy Guard System (BGS). BGS is a small, extremely low power sensor system that will detect the presence of intruders first approaching and then boa ...

  6. Fragment Size Analysis and Tracking System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: MDA12007

    McQ has developed the Fragment Size Analysis and Tracking (FSAT) system which replaces the ring of switch screens used to record fragment impact time in ground based arena and sled testing with a network of sensors containing high speed cameras. FSAT will record and analyze video of warhead fragmentation then automatically produce a report describing the mass, size, speed, and trajectory of each ...

  7. Multi-Phenomenology Discrimination for Feature Aided Data Fusion

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12005

    In this Phase II effort we will produce a multi-sensor discrimination system using a Manifold Learning (MFL) algorithm originally developed under a prior effort.Whereas other discrimination systems utilize features defined by subject matter experts (SMEs), our MFL algorithm learns important characteristics of a target through training with historical data.In prior work, we have applied our MFL alg ...

  8. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-Radio Frequency (RF) Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks. The HURFS approach combines the u ...

  10. Innovative Designs for Reliable Electro-Explosive Ordnance Devices

    SBC: SYSTEMS ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12031

    Missiles, use electro-explosive devices (EEDs) to perform mulitple functions during operation. This effort seeks ways to improve on the EED"s reliability and lower the failure or inadvertent activation rate of these devices. During Phase I, SEA CORP investigated replacing EEDs with commercial off the shelf (COTS) automotive airbag inflators to perform the required pneumatic functions of variou ...
