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. Development of a portable 3-dimensional variation (3DVAR) data assimilation module for NOAA

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 814

    We propose to develop and deliver a generalized 3DVAR data assimilation module, in an opensource and non-proprietary programming language, which is compatible with both ROMS and FVCOM and easily incorporated into the existing NOAA operational forecast system (OFS). Our innovation is to develop a data assimilation roadmap contrasting 3DVAR with other advanced techniques such as multi-scale 3DVAR, 4 ...

  2. Mariner Report Application (MARApp): Crowdsourcing Maritime Weather Conditions

    SBC: Liteweaver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 826

    Metron proposes a software framework for crowd-sourcing weather observations in a maritime environment leveraging personal mobile devices. Our proposed App, the Mariner’s Report App (MARApp), draws data from existing sensors in modern smartphones and tablets, as well as meteorological sensors normally found on small marine vessels. Our architecture is modular, extensible, and readily adaptable t ...

  3. Crowdsourcing Coastal data with Low Cost IOT CTD / Hydrophone

    SBC: Swift Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 833

    This paper proposes development of a low cost combined hydrophone and CTD sensor, with wireless communication and software support to upload data to National Geographic’s FieldKit. This will enable citizen scientists to collect conductivity, temperature, depth, and ocean noise measurements on an adhoc basis while contributing to a single large data repository which will allow for deep analysis o ...

  4. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: Latitude Engineering, LLC            Topic: 832

    The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the gas engine gives long ...

  5. Position Error Maps for GPS/GNSS

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 831

    As our nation’s dependence on reliable satellite navigation systems for precise Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications increases, any errors/uncertainties or degradation of service will have significant life, safety, and economic impacts. Ionospheric ‘space weather’ is one of the largest sources of error in PNT applications that use the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) s ...

  6. Design of an Autonomous, Green Powered, Mobile Coastal Monitor

    SBC: Tridentis, LLC            Topic: 821

    The mobile coastal monitor project is designed to research the state-of-the-art green power supplies and apply them as the propulsion and sensor power source for a highly efficient surface platform. The platform will be equipped with a modular sensor bay that is capable of housing a wide variety of atmospheric, air/sea interface, and sub-surface sensors suitable for a wide range of sensing operati ...

  7. Automated HCl laser monitor for long term and flight deployments

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Tropospheric oxidation capacity is dominated by HOx photochemistry, however halogen atoms and oxides significantly affect these chemical cycles. A sensitive and robust measurement of gaseous HCl is critically important to improve our understanding of halogen chemistry and its impacts on the spatial and temporal oxidation capacity of the atmosphere. This is vital to evaluating the life time of shor ...

  8. Development of a Commercial, Reproducible NO(y) CRDS for Precise Atmospheric Research

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 851

    HPD, a small business focused on development and commercialization of advanced instruments, sensors and research equipment, proposes to partner with NAOA on technology transfer and commercialization of the NO(y) Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer for atmospheric research. Since our founding in 1993, HPD has collaborated with researchers at NAOA and other government, commercial and academic institutions ...

  9. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor individual environment ...

  10. Micro-fluidic Photometer with Adaptive Mask

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used to convey the particl ...
