60 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ADA Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T008
Budget: 05/24/16 - 12/30/16

To meet Navy needs for high performance and safe lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries for naval aircraft, ADA Technologies Inc. (ADA) and its university collaborator propose to develop and optimize tailor designed nanoporous separators derived from functionalized block copolymers (polyolefins) with low cost precursors. The innovative strategy provides...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ZBH ENTERPRISES, LLC

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: SH
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project promotes a promising new approach to improve employee wellness with the potential for wider application beyond the workplace. This improved approach combines both innovative clinical diagnostics with computer assisted learning to guide recom...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectral Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT40
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. ?Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. ?These complexities include turbulent, high...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Moai Technologies, LLC

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EA-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This STTR Phase I project proposes to develop an interactive computer game to promote interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for high school students. The game will use NSF-funded technologies to teach students how to program and control robots while simultaneously maintaining student interest through the entertainment of ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Boston Applied Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T018
Budget: 05/06/13 - 04/15/14

Microwave technologies have found a broad range of and growing applications, especially in the area of communications. Many microwave tunable devices are bulky and incompatible with RF semiconductor IC technology. The slow tuning response speeds, high material losses, and device noise at higher frequencies have also limited their widespread appl...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Optomec Design Company

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT26
Budget: 01/22/13 - 01/22/15

ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc.

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-T4.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Robots and rovers exploring planets need to autonomously navigate to specified locations. Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) and the University of Minnesota will develop a navigational system that employs an IMU and a 3D FLASH Lidar camera manufactured at ASC. The system will furnish both the position of the rover and an elevation map of...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: TAO of Systems Integration, Inc.

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-T2.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

New aircraft designs depend on an integrated active approach to flight control, flutter suppression and structural mode attenuation to meet desired handling quality performance and gust load alleviation. Tao Systems will team with Professor Gary Balas at the University of Minnesota to (1) develop a robust controller that demonstrates improved ae...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Boston Applied Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Army
