Man Overboard Recovery Device (U.S. Patent Pending)

The NOAA Man Overboard Device allows a single rescuer to attach a lifting harness to an unresponsive victim who is unable to assist in their own rescue.  That is the most significant advantage that our device has over existing rescue devices. Our device does not require the rescuer to enter the water to assist the victim. I feel that any vessel equipped with both a Life Sling and our device can recover an MOB in almost any situation.

ONav and GeoPixel™: Web-Based Navigation for the Collection of Aerial Imagery (US Patent Pending)

NOAA engineers have created a heads-up navigation display for pilots for coastal imagery acquisition, “ONav.”  The system combines a real-time Global Positioning System (GPS) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) stream along with image collection metadata from the on-board cameras to generate vector overlays the pilots can use to easily navigate, track progress, and ensure full coverage of the survey area greatly improving survey efficiency.
