Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB101-010
Budget: 09/10/11 - 09/09/13

Superhydrophobic nanostructured coating will be developed from transparent ultrastrong materials. The coatings will be scalable, inexpensive, mechanically robust and thermally resilient. We will initially design such coatings using layered nanocomposites. Then it will be optimized for different surfaces. In the final stages of the project we wil...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-123
Budget: 03/10/11 - 09/10/11

The main goal of this proposal is to develop novel lightweight high strength composite materials to be used as materials for next-generation transparent armor for multifunctional structural load support and mitigation of ballistic threats and blast impacts. While providing adequate protection most of the time, the current technology of transpare...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB101-010
Budget: 06/01/10 - 04/15/11

Ultrahydrophobic coatings can provide an elegant solution to the anti-fogging problem that plagues current military optical systems. Biomimetic composite materials can offer realistic and permanent solution to the existing short-comings of current anti-fogging coatings. This proposal suggests realization of a biomimetic composite for anti-foggin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD10-103
Budget: 05/17/10 - 11/16/10

The drug R&D cycle is long and very expensive. In many ways, this status quo can no longer be sustained. One of the reasons for such great cost is that the vast majority of drug candidates are screened out at the stages of animal and human trials. More efficient methods of testing of drugs at the stage of ex-vivo studies, which are substanti...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Michigan

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT36
Budget: 05/13/10 - 02/13/11

The realization of materials with record mechanical and electrical properties is of paramount importance to the Air Force and other branches of the US Armed Forces. Layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly is capable of producing nanocomposite materials with record properties surpassing those made by many traditional composite preparation techniques. How...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Michigan

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST081-002
Budget: 08/20/08 - 11/12/09

A new method of manufacturing of deep brain stimulation devices is proposed. We will use proprietary method of processing of carbon nanotubes into ultrastrong and highly conductive thin sheets. Flexibility of the sheets and special electrode design will make possible effective integration of the designed implants into the brain tissues. This w...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Michigan

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T017
Budget: 07/09/08 - 05/07/09

This project will develop a new family of composites from single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with loading equal or above 50%. A proprietary version of layer-by-layer assembly (LBL) technology will be applied to composite manufacturing of SWNTs combined with poly(ether ether ketone)(PEEK). The layers of polymer and SWNTs will be build-up on t...
