Visit the iNOAAvation Center @ Blue Tech Week 2019!

The NOAA Technology Partnerships Office will be attending Blue Tech Week in San Diego, November 20-22, 2019.  Come visit us at the iNOAAvation Center and see how NOAA is innovating across the Blue Economy!  

Before you come, check out some of the latest technologies from NOAA labs and our SBIR awardees below.

HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity


CODAR Ocean Sensors, with headquarters in Mountain View, California, conducts research, design, manufacturing and support of High Frequency Radar (HFR) systems primarily for ocean current mapping and wave monitoring. Staff of CODAR Ocean Sensors are the world’s experts in HF radar theory and system design. CODAR has produced more than 80% of all HF radars ever built worldwide for ocean environmental monitoring. CODAR partnered with the University of California Santa Barbara on phase I and II of an SBIR program, "HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity", which resulted in the commercially available AutoAPM add-on kit for SeaSonde® HFR systems. 

The AutoAPM kit can generate autonomous SeaSonde antenna pattern measurements (APM's) using Doppler echoes from passing vessels as a signal source and their AIS transponder data for a reference bearing. The automated output is useful in system calibration, routine system monitoring and maintenance for maximizing quality assurance of HFR data products remotely without costly field-based calibration procedures, which will both save money and foster higher quality data outputs for Search and Rescue, spill response activities as well as the many other uses identified by U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (US IOOS).
