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. Coral Tissue Engineering for Mass-production of Coral for the Recreational Marine Aquarium Trade and Conservation Industry

    SBC: Haereticus Environmental Laboratory            Topic: 812

      Over 10 million coral species 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 invented a method of perpetual propagation of corals through tissue engineering.  ...

  2. Ground-based Water Vapor Profiling Lidar

    SBC: Bennett Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: 832

    The objective of Phase II is to continue our efforts from the Phase I project and perform in-depth testing of technologies critical to achieving the required level of measurement performance. The Phase II project will involve the design of the NOAA water vapor profiling lidar and testing of component parts, seeking external sources of funding for the systems (for Phase III) and further creati ...

  3. Low-Cost Integrated Multi-Channel Microwave Radiometer Receivers for Hurricane Surface Wind Structure Measurement

    SBC: PROSENSING, INC.            Topic: 837

    This proposal describes the development of compact radiometer receiver modules intended for use in hurricane wind speed imaging radiometers and low cost single beam ocean wind speed sensors. The Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRad), currently under development by a team of government, university and industrial partners, will require ten high performance receiver channels, which must be compact an ...

  4. Climate Information Management Toolkit

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 822

    The SBIR solicitation expressed the need for tools to process data from disparate sources in various formats and generate drought-relevant data products. NIDIS also recognizes a need to span organizational boundaries to provide access to integrated drought information for use in water management. The Phase I SBIR project resulted in prototype Climate Information Management Toolkit (CIMT) software ...

  5. Program Estimating Whale Migration Statistics

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 816F

    Toyon proposes to develop a system that can automatically count the number of gray whales that pass nearby a shore-based installation. The system will be comprised of infrared cameras and a set of computers, which automatically scan the video for whale blows. We have implemented and tested such an algorithm using Matlab during Phase I and we propose to extend this algorithm to run in real time dur ...

  6. Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 816N

    In Phase I, a novel porous electrode was designed to demonstrate a rapid, simple assay for the detection of domoic acid in marine samples. During Phase II, methods to manufacture porous electrodes will be improved to enable high volume production of low-cost biosensors that can be connected to a potentiostat. These biosensors will be incorporated into a portable test kit for the quantitation of do ...

  7. Reducing Impact of Severe Space Weather on Global Positioning System (GPS) Satellite Users

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 844W

    In Phase II, Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to complete the development of a real-time nowcast of ionospheric scintillation impacts on GPS users. Continuing its partnership with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, PRA will implement real-time production of a map of ionospheric scintillation parameters over the United States using real-time data streamed from the National Geo ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Reconfigurable Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 94

    A preliminary design of a mobile receiver system for intra-cloud lightning detection, mapping, and tracking was completed and analyzed during the Phase I program. The direction-finding (DF) receiver design is small enough for use on small UAVs and utilizes the full VHF spectrum. The lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LITMUS) design will be finalized, fabricated, assembled, and demonstrated durin ...

  10. Automated Detection, Tracking Measurement, and Classification of Fish Observed by Underwater Cameras

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 92

    We propose to develop a system that can automatically detect, track, measure, and classify fish seen in video collected by stationary underwater cameras. Our approach makes use of a novel method for detecting motion that can mitigate false alarms due to swaying underwater vegetation. We propose a novel technique for tracking the fish in three spatial dimensions allowing for improved knowledge of ...
