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

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

Seeking commercial partners for licensing and distribution of this NOAA-developed technology.

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.

Smart Module for Communications Processing and Interface US Patent 9,297,925

Smart Module for Communications Processing and Interface US Patent 9,297,925


Engineers at NOAA’s National Data Buoy Center have developed a patent-pending data collection and reporting system, the Smart Module for Communications Processing and Interface,  for use on data buoys or similar ocean- or land-based platforms where environmental data are being collected.  The benefit of the Smart Module design is that it may be readily retrofitted to a data buoy, weather station, or other similar applications, in order to add additional data acquisition capabilities or features, without disturbing existing communications and data logging equipment at the location.  This saves both time and money for testing and certifying new equipment at existing data gathering sites, some of which may be quite remote and difficult to access. By eliminating the risk of compromising an entire system by adding new components, the Smart Module makes adding new capabilities to existing platforms relatively simple and extremely cost effective.

Sub-Surface Automated Dual Water Sampler (SAS)

Sub-Surface Automated Dual Water Sampler (SAS)

NOAA-Designed Hands On Learning Tool for Students and Scientists

The sub-surface automated dual water sampler (SAS) was designed by researchers at NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) and the University of Miami to help scientists study water chemistry on shallow reef habitats. Explore the SAS website, use it to guide you in building and using your own water samplers, embrace the maker movement and improve on our design. If you are a teacher, there are free lesson plans to download that include labs and activities related to science, technology, and engineering. Enjoy this site and please use the SAS to learn about and explore our oceans!

Novel, Inexpensive Temperature Sensor Unlocks Coral Monitoring Challenge

Novel, Inexpensive Temperature Sensor Unlocks Coral Monitoring Challenge

Novel design and minimal cost propel interest in global deployment at reefs.

Warm ocean water can be a killer for coral reefs, and AOML recently developed a new inexpensive sensor to drastically improve our ability to measure and monitor changing temperatures on reefs at an unprecedented scale.  The low cost sea temperature sensor, known as InSituSea, costs roughly $10 in parts to produce while providing high accuracy (0.05-0.1 C) in measurement. With a production cost that is 10% of an off-the-shelf temperature sensor, colleagues have expressed strong interest in deploying the InSituSea sea temperature sensor at coral reefs around the world.

NOAA-Funded Coral Instrument Leads to Start-Up

NOAA-Funded Coral Instrument Leads to Start-Up

CISME Instruments, LLC to Sell Commercial Instrument for Coral and Benthic Studies

CISME was developed by Drs. Alina M. Szmant and Robert F. Whitehead at the University of North Carolina Wilmington Center for Marine Science with funding from NOAA OER Grant NA09OAR4320073. The team is in the process of commercializing the Coral In Situ Metabolism INstrument or CISME (pronounced Kiss-Me). The start up has a set of instruments available for testing by trained and qualified research divers who are willing to collaborate and provide the company their feedback. A few “early adopter” units are also available for sale.

Man Overboard Recovery Device

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.
