NOAA's Expendable BathyThermograph (XBT) - Innovation for Taking the Ocean's Temperature

An eXpendable BathyThermograph (XBT) is a probe that is dropped from a ship and measures the temperature as it falls through the water. A very thin wire transmits the temperature data to the ship where it is recorded for later analysis. The probe is designed to fall at a known rate, so that the depth of the probe can be inferred from the time since it was launched.

Man Overboard Recovery Device

Seeking U.S. Manufacturer for NOAA device that allows assisted rescue of incapacitated crew

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.  NOAA device does not require the rescuer to enter the water to assist the victim, which is critical in situations where the water is too cold and/or the operator of the boat is required to make the rescue.
