  1. 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 ...

  2. (Anno) Tator Online: A Web Application for Exploration and Curation of Underwater Video and Imagery

    SBC: CVISION AI INC            Topic: 9302

    Using modern web technologies, we will build an application that can be used to explore, enrich, and evaluate the wealth of underwater video and imagery being collected by NOAA and its partners. Existing data portals are primarily for text based or keyword search, and for viewing of existing data, lacking the ability for rich interaction, visualization of metadata, and adding new types of annotati ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 9201

    TIAX proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a quick tack, long pot life, and 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 na ...

  5. Developing Lightning Data Services for Commercial and Public Applications

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 9401

    In this Phase I effort, CFD Research proposes the creation of a lightning services API using data from the GOES-16/17 Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) and the development of valued-added lightning initiation and cessation products. Leveraging CFD Research’s experience in software and API development and atmospheric sciences for lightning research applications, this API will provide a simplif ...

  6. Autonomous Data Acquisition and Processing Payload for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 9501

    In response to NOAA-OAR-OAR TPO-2019-2005899 topic 9.5.01, Kitware proposes a compact data collection and processing payload that can be hosted from small unmanned aircraft systems to support autonomous beyond line of sight missions. This innovative payload will manage collections from onboard sensors with optimizations collection paradigms. It will produce curated, geo-registered data archives, w ...

  7. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  8. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  9. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  10. Developing a robust and scalable calibration approach to low-cost AQ sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Poor air quality represents a major public health risk, contributing to an estimated one of every eight deaths worldwide. Low-cost air quality sensors have developed rapidly over the last few years and offer the opportunity to make air quality monitoring widespread at an affordable price. However, low-cost sensors are currently unable to deliver accurate, reliable data due to a lack of understandi ...
