20 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc.

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T1.01
Budget: 09/30/16 - 09/29/18

Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc (Parabilis), in collaboration with Utah State University (USU), proposes further development of a low-cost, high-performance launch vehicle upper stage that uses a high density, storable oxidizer and a polymer fuel grain as propellants in response to solicitation T1.01, Affordable Nano/Micro Launch Propulsion St...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Wavefront, LLC

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 09/29/16 - 09/28/18
PI: Jie Yao

We propose to develop a Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) detector and focal plane array (FPA) with highest sensitivity, lowest noise and hence highest signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) among all FPAs covering the shortwave infrared band, for incorporation into a prototype imaging spectroscopy CAMM instrument for real-time operation on a plane...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Baicor L.C.

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 07/01/15 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology (STTR) project is the development of new and transformative fungicidal strategies that are more effective, ecofriendly, less toxic, but still produced and available at reasonable and competitive cost. More than 80% of crop and turf diseases are due to fungal infections. Di...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Fibertek, Inc.

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T9.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Fibertek proposes a configurable, multi-beam, 1.5 um Doppler Lidar sensor, enabled by high-speed non-mechanical beam steering (NMBS). NMBS uses state-of-the-art, high-speed liquid-crystal based components, to provide wide-angle (up to +/- 45 degree), large-aperture, optical beam steering, at speeds of up to 10 kHz. Furthermore, this is integrate...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc.

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T1.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc. (Parabilis), in collaboration with Utah State University (USU), proposes a low cost, high performance launch vehicle upper stage using oxygen and a novel additively manufactured polymer fuel grain as propellants in response to solicitation T1.01, Affordable Nano/Micro Launch Propulsion Stages. This technology w...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Wavefront

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16
PI: Jie Yao

We propose to develop a Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) mega-pixel focal plane array (FPA) imager with highest sensitivity, lowest noise and hence highest signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) among all imagers covering the shortwave infrared band, and to incorporate the prototype PCIC imager into a prototype imaging spectroscopy CAMM instrument...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Box Elder Innovations, LLC

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT20
Budget: 08/08/13 - 11/09/15

ABSTRACT: Over half of spacecraft system anomalies attributed to interactions with the natural space environment including - electron upsets, damage to components, power system debilities, and complete satellite failures - are attributed to spacecraft charging. While measurements of electron emission, surface potential, and electrostatic breakd...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING

Institution: Utah State University

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and v...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Mosaic Atm, Inc.

Institution: Utah State University

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I research project investigates constructivist learning principles that can be applied to increase problem solving ability and conceptual understanding, improve student attitudes, and decrease failure rates. These methods have been applied and validated, with particular benefit shown to women ...
