The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Vessel Launched Unmanned Aircraft System for Marine Debris Detection and Tracking

    SBC: Airborne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 843

    Airborne Technologies, Inc. Phase II effort will be to build and demonstrate a low-cost marinized Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) that can be operated easily from small or large vessels and is capable of reliable and repeatable operations in an ocean environment.  The UAS will be utilized for the detecting and tracking of marine debris, sea-life or other objects in the open ocean.  The sy ...

  2. Acoustic Propagation Analysis Program for Marine Scientists

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: 819

    The goal of the Phase II project is to develop a prototype of the Marine Acoustic Propagation System (MAPS).  MAPS is a computer system designed in a client-server archi9tecture that provides NOAA marine scientists, who do not have an extensive background in underwater acoustics, with a tool that selects the appropriate acoustic model for estimating underwater propagation loss for anthropogen ...

  3. Hyperspectral Imaging Projector Based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon Displays

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    This proposal outlines a novel architecture for a hyperspectral imaging projector based on liquid crystal on silicon micro-displays.

  4. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

    Out of air situations present a hazard.  They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface.  A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required.  The device must be effective.  In order for the device to be adopted and success, its ease of use, ergonomics and cost must be attrac ...

  5. A Superior Lower-Cost Dual-Polarized MPAR Array Antenna

    SBC: FreEnt Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 833

    FreEnt proposes a next generation low cost, dual-polarization Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) Connected Array antenna for MPAR.  The new array supports both weather surveillance and surveillance with pristine cross polarization performance.  Key attributes are low cost COTS, complete frequency and waveform flexibility, and pristine polarization performance and isolation with the following benefits ...

  6. A Miniaturized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year.  To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered.  As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to continue development of an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use.  The technical innovation i ...

  7. A Simplified Sound Propagation Tool

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 819

    In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the role of man-made sound on the marine environment.  For this effort, we propose developing an intuitive software interface for sound propagation modeling.  This will be based on software developed at HLS Research, Inc. for similar applications.  The software will use existing propagation modeling codes that have a long hist ...

  8. Coral Tissue Engineering for Mass-Production of Coral for the Recreational Marine Aquarium Trade

    SBC: Haereticus Environmental Laboratory            Topic: 812

    Over 10 million coral specimens a year are traded in the +$100 million/year ornamental-recreational aquaria industry.  Over ninety percent of commercial coral specimens come from some form of mass harvesting of wild corals from coral reefs.  This can have a detrimental impact to coral reefs.  We have invented a method of perpetual propagation of corals through tissue engineering.&nb ...

  9. GPS Reference for Radiosonde Validation

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL MET SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: 831

    Qualifying the accuracy of GPS systems is both expensive and time consuming.  This situation is especially true when validating GPS systems on radiosondes.  A new and unique GPS reference system is presented that gives radiosonde evaluators a very low cost, highly accurate GPS reference for use in validating GPS data.  The accuracy of the proposed GPS reference system depends on sev ...

  10. Multiple Digital Camera Mount with FMC

    SBC: Aerial Imaging Solutions            Topic: 817

    NOAA uses large-format aerial film camera systems to collect data for the monitoring of marine mammal populations protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the U.S. Endangered Species Act.  Historically, the major users of these cameras and film have been the military and government mapping agencies.  As these users move to newer technology, manufacturers are ending, or severe ...
