TCarta Gets SBIR Grant for Satellite-Derived Bathymetry in Alaska

TCarta Marine, a global provider of space-based hydrospatial solutions, has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The research focuses on enhancing satellite-derived bathymetry (SDB) technology for application in the coastal waters of Alaska.

SDB extracts water depth measurements from multispectral satellite imagery using advanced physics-based algorithms. Traditionally, this technology has yielded the most accurate results in clear, calm waters. TCarta has recently taken the lead in expanding SDB applications to more challenging marine environments worldwide.
