  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. Small Satellite Cloud Observation System

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 9601

    We propose the design of an optical instrument package capable of making cloud observations and deployable on a CubeSat. The design will be based on decades of research in cloud remote sensing and each spectral channel will be comprised of a commercial-off-the-shelf camera and a spectral filter as needed. The base design will be comprised of three channels, two in the shortwave infrared and one in ...

  3. Biomimetic Adhesives for Restoration of Coral Reefs

    SBC: WARDENCLYFFE CHEMICALS, INC.            Topic: 9201

    Restoration of coral reefs is dependent upon an ability to adhere young corals, grown in tanks, onto inorganic substrates within the seas. The epoxies in current use do not provide a viable path to restoration owing to poor adhesion underwater, lengthy mixing of components needed, clouds of toxic epoxy precursors released into the water, and extensive diver time needed to clean the underlying cora ...

  4. Developing Regional GIC Hazard Tools for Power Utility Planning and Operations

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 9302

    Geomagnetically induced current (GIC) hazard is a recognized threat to the United States power system. Federal models to support hazard specification and prediction for critical infrastructure are at an advanced state, including models of space weather, the Earth’s conductive structure, and regional geoelectric field. We propose to use existing NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (NOAA-SWPC) mo ...

  5. Enabling the Rapid Creation of Custom Predictive Models with GOES-16 and NEXRAD Data

    SBC: Onu Technology, Inc.            Topic: 9401

    NOAA's Big Data Project (BDP) has made several valuable datasets available on major cloud platforms. While a critical step, many organizations that would benefit from the data are not technologically capable of performing state-of-the-art machine learning. We propose to unlock the power of the data for those who can most benefit by developing technology that automatically trains deep learning mode ...

  6. Interactive Visualization of 3D NEXRAD Data in Virtual Reality

    SBC: BadVR, Inc.            Topic: 9401

    This project will create a proof-of-concept application that visualizes 3D NEXRAD data from NOAA's Big Data Project inside virtual reality (VR). By integrating unique processing and projection algorithms into low-cost VR headsets, this initiative will increase the accessibility of data to meteorologists, fire departments, and first responders during critical decision-making. During the recent Cali ...

  7. (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 ...

  8. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 9201

    Coral transplantation is a primary management option for rehabilitation of degraded reefs. Stabilization (via adhesion, etc.) of transplants on existing reef or artificial substrates notably improves their survival rate. Improved underwater adhesives are needed for expedient and convenient stabilization of coral transplants with improved survival rate. A new hybrid organic-inorganic adhesive is pr ...

  9. An Innovative Approach to Seafloor Classification: Applying Advanced Unsupervised Machine Learning in Complex and Variable Bottom Types with Multispectral Satellite Imagery

    SBC: TCarta Marine LLC            Topic: 9603

    Machine learning and unsupervised classification have been applied to seafloor classification and benthic mapping using multibeam echosounders (MBES), Light Ranging and Detection (LiDAR), airborne hyperspectral, underwater optical cameras, and satellite imagery. Regardless of the sensor, data dimensionality reduction is an integral processing step of seabed mapping workflows. The most commonly imp ...

  10. Design and fabrication of the “OLEAS”: Oceanographic Lidar for Environmental Assessment

    SBC: Nalu Scientific, LLC            Topic: 9601

    Passive ocean color remote sensing has revolutionized our ability to quantify the horizontal distribution of phytoplankton across the ocean surface. Lidar (Light Detection And Ranging) technology has the potential to similarly revolutionize our ability to remotely measure the vertical distribution of optical properties and suspended particles in natural waters, significantly improving our predicti ...
