iGage:  A Cost Effective Instrument for Measuring River Height and Snow Depth

iGage: A Cost Effective Instrument for Measuring River Height and Snow Depth

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.

CISME ™ (Kiss-Me) Coral In Situ Metabolism Sensor

CISME ™ (Kiss-Me) Coral In Situ Metabolism Sensor


NOAA is seeking a U.S. manufacturer to build and distribute a new device for the non-destructive monitoring of coral health.  

CISME ™ is a self-contained, diver-portable instrument designed to non-destructively measure coral respiration and photosynthesis in situ. In situ instruments are needed to promote rapid assessment and monitoring of metabolic health of corals and other benthic organisms affected by ocean acidification, global warming, and other stressors, both anthropogenic and natural.

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.
