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.

LICENSING OPPORTUNITY:  TerraViz

LICENSING OPPORTUNITY: TerraViz

NOAA Earth Information System (NEIS) and TerraViz Data Visualization Technologies Now Available

The NOAA Earth Information System (NEIS)TM is a framework of layered services designed to help the discovery, access, understanding, and visualization of data from the past, present, and future. It includes a visualization component named TerraVizTM that is a multi-platform tool, running on desktops, web browsers, and mobile devices. The goal is to ingest "big data" and convert that information into efficient formats for real-time visualization. Designed for a world where everything is in motion, NEISTM and TerraVizTM allow fluid data integration and interaction across 4D time and space, providing a tool for everything NOAA does and the people NOAA affects.
