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. SeaTag-SP: A Spawning Detecting and Reporting Pop-Up Satellite Tag

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The application of acoustic sensing in small, affordable, satellite connected ocean devices has broad potential. This proposal focuses at first on the specific topic requirement, designing a popup satellite tag (PSAT) incorporating an acoustic receiver to identify and report the timing and location of fish spawning based on signal presence/absence detection for a tiny pinger wh ...

  2. FogViewer

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to b ...

  3. A Tube-Deployed Expendable UAV for Atmospheric Sensing

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 8213

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA is pursuing sustained, in-situ sensing technology to support improved atmospheric modeling of the upper ocean boundary environment, including the air-sea interface, during turbulent storms. Improved atmospheric modeling in this critical region will lead to better forecasting and support NOAA's mandate to protect property and save lives. Small, unmanned aircraft, equipped w ...

  4. Adaptive Mapping of the Gulf Dead Zone with Autonomous Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV), LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Gliders alone are incapable of monitoring the shallower regions of the hypoxic zone under conditions when the density gradient is strong, therefore surface vehicles are required to autonomously collect a suite of oceanographic observations from surface waters and profile this portion of the hypoxic zone. Autonomous Surface Vehicles, LLC (ASV, LLC) is partnering with Integral Co ...

  5. Clean Energy Source to Power NOAA Long-term Observation and Monitoring Networks

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Creare proposes to develop a self-sustained small-scale power conversion system to power NOAA’s weather monitoring network stations located in harsh uninhabited locations. Our miniature heat engine will take advantage of the existing year-round thermal gradients found between water and air in Arctic regions. Our baseline approach is the development of a compact Turbo-Rankine ...

  6. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Bottom Feeder will be a highly maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), with a tethered operations option and modular sensor bay, to support benthic optical surveys, coral reef mapping and health assessment, and be expandable for future survey operations. It will integrate a low drag hullform, a minimum of four degrees of independent motion control, a highly efficient ...

  7. A Location-based Weather Threat Tracking and Notification System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 834

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: CFDRC proposes the creation of an innovative location-based threat tracking and notification system to allow users to receive hazardous weather messages from the NWS with their call to action, allow users to receive custom-tailored messages about threats, and visualize relevant weather information within their area. The focus is on a tool that allows this information to be comm ...

  9. Feasibility of a Recoverable, Balloon-Based, GNSS-RO Platform

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The SBIR Phase I proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in assessing the feasibility of performing GNSS radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a balloon platform. In Phase I, NCL will perform appropriate trade studies and sensitivity studies to identify key design requirements for the balloon-based GNSS-RO payload and the balloon platform. A lowcost, proof-of-conce ...

  10. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and impractical for widespread field deployment. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to produce a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) that builds upon a established (patent pending) technolog ...
