Transition of HabCam Technology to NOAA Operations and Technology Upgrade

This proposal consists of three objectives and deliverables specifically addressing the need to transition HabCam technology into operational fisheries assessment and to train NOAA
technicians in the operation and maintenance of the entire system. The objectives are the
1) To provide to NOAA personnel documentation and training of all HabCamV4
operational procedures including manual annotation, vehicle operations, data ingestion into the database, and production of data products, 2) To participate in the 2013 Scallop Survey on Leg 1, and 3) To provide hardware and software upgrades to the NOAA HabCamV4 instrument to allow continued smooth and efficient operations.
