NOAA device 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. 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.
Designs for Two New Deepwater Traps Released
NOAA scientists have developed two new trap designs that can target invasive lionfish in deep water and reduce negative effects on native species that are ecologically, recreationally, or commercially important.
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.”
Seeking interested manufacturers for technology transfer
NOAA has developed a flexible antenna system for collecting data form PIT-tagged fish. The system is flexible, scalable, easy to deploy, and can be used in both fixed and towed applications.
Seeking Licensees for Aquaculture Systems, Aquarium Supplies, Wastewater Treatment
NOAA engineers have recently developed an innovative biological filtration system for aquaculture and aquarium usage that is inexpensive, simple to set up, scalable, and best of all, is self-cleaning.
NOAA is seeking commercial partners for manufacturing and distribution of this new instrument
The iGage is a low-cost, portable, rapidly deployable sonar instrument for providing river stage and snow depth information. Developed by NOAA for remote field use in Alaska, the iGage is lightweight, durable, and compact, measuring just 5” x 7” x 3”. The device is solar-powered so it requires no existing site power and can be boom-mounted to a variety of fixed platforms.
