22 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Nevada Nanotech Systems, Inc.

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: Army
Topic: A13A-T017
Budget: 01/09/14 - 07/09/14

We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-T01
Budget: 02/27/13 - 07/27/13

Secure, domestic sources of rare earth elements (REE) would be of great strategic importance to the Department of Defense, as well as many commercially important industries. Our approach takes advantage of an abundant and low cost source not previously co

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ADA Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT24
Budget: 08/01/11 - 04/30/12

ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are lipophilic agents derived from fungus that pose a significant public health problem around the world. The effects of mycotoxins include loss of human and animal life, increased healthcare and veterinary costs, reduced livestock production, and disposal of contaminated foods and feeds. Mycotoxins, such as aflatoxin and T-...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Innosense LLC

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T8.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Protection of critical electronic systems in spacecraft and satellites is imperative for NASA's future missions to high-energy, outer-planet environments. The objective of this project is to develop flexible, transparent, and removable conformal coatings to protect delicate, mission-critical electronic components from electrostatic discharge dam...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: TDA Research, Inc.

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T025
Budget: 06/28/10 - 04/30/11

Electromagnetic launchers or rail guns are a key component of the Navy s all-electric ship of the future, but they lack the durability required for repeated firings. TDA Research and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) are developing a tough, durable and conductive refractory metal coating that will protect the copper alloy conductors (rails) f...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: G2 Software Systems, Inc.

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T045
Budget: 06/28/10 - 07/19/11

G2 Software Systems (G2SS) proposes to explore all features of Google Wave to develop practices and extensions to support Navy Command and Control (C2) processes. The C2 practices and extensions include tools for collaborative problem analysis, collaborative planning, knowledge sharing, knowledge awareness (searching and registering for critical...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: ADVANCED MATERIALS & DEVICES INC

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II project seeks to develop and commercialize an optimized technique to produce durable nano-porous surfaces (NPS) for heat transfer applications using an inexpensive electrochemical pro...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ADVANCED MATERIALS & DEVICES INC

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project seeks to develop stable and optimal compressible magneto-rheological fluids (CMRFs) and to perform device tests on such fluids to demonstrate their durability. The production of stable ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ADVANCED MATERIALS & DEVICES INC

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project aims at developing a heat exchanger technology utilizing a homogeneous nano-porous surface (NPS) that will significantly increase the efficiency of the boiling process. The NPS technology offers considerable enhancement in boiling heat transfer capabilities for small- to lar...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ADVANCED MATERIALS & DEVICES INC

Institution: University of Nevada, Reno

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a compressible magnetorheological (CMR) fluid. Magnetorheological fluids consist of magnetizable particles suspended in a carrier fluid. The compression of a fluid is the measured change of volume from an applied external force...
