  1. HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 841

    Of more than 100 HF Radars operating within the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), more than half run either without recommended receive antenna pattern calibrations or with out-of-date calibrations, despite potential compromises to data quality. Cost is the primary inhibitor of frequent calibration, which generally requires a technician to drive a small vessel with mounted transponder ...

  2. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

      For divers, out of air situations present a particular 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. In order for the device to be adopted, it must no t only be effective but it must offer ease of use and a strea ...

  3. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  4. Efficient Processing Using New Cell Disruption Method

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: 815

    The proposed effort is aimed at the development of a new low-cost technique for extracting the fuel precursor components from marine alga cells. The effort is aimed at reducing the total production costs of alga-derived fuels, up to one-half of which may be attributed to the recovery/extraction process alone. Development of advanced processing technologies such as that proposed here is n ...

  5. Traffic Intersection Simulation of IntelliDrive, J2735, and DSRC/WAVE with eTEXAS

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 101FH3

      Harmonia’s proposed work will be instrumental in accelerating the maturity of IntelliDrive applications that avoid intersection collisions.  This proposal unlocks the storehouse of modeling detail in TEXAS under the cost-free GPL copyleft license to organizations building IntelliDrive applications for collision avoidance at intersections.  We add SAE J2375 sPAT messages repo ...

  6. 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.  ...

  7. Multiple Digital Camera Mount with FMC

    SBC: Aerial Imaging Solutions            Topic: 817

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

  8. 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 ...

  9. An Integrated System for In-Field Detection of Microbial Contaminants in Coastal Waters

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 811

    NOAA places a high priority in working with state and territory coastal resource managers to manage and conserve these vital resources. Microbial contamination adversely impacts coastal water quality, and poor water quality has negative economic, health and environmental effects. Therefore, the advancement and implementation of rapid and automated methods for monitoring and identifying m ...

  10. Low Cost, Compact, Direct Detection Wind and Temperature Lidar for Measurements in the Boundary Layer

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: 845

    Monitoring and forecasting of atmospheric winds within the United States provides protection from severe weather conditions, enables the safe operations of airports, provides the ability to predict wildfire evolution, and the dispersion of hazardous material plumes. However, the current NOAA National Profiler Network (NPN) is limited in spatial extent and is temporally and spatially very spar ...
