34 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Parametric Studio Inc.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EA
Budget: 07/01/16 - 06/30/17

This STTR Phase I project, the Engineering Design Instruction Software for implementing Objectives of Next generation standards, will combine Science Technology Engineering and Math (or STEM) concepts together with engineering design, simulation, 3-D printing, and gaming. When finished the project will produce a virtual workspace for K-12 engine...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SusTerea Biorenewables LLC

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 07/01/16 - 06/30/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is the accelerated utilization of crop materials for the manufacture of biobased aromatic chemicals such as terephthalic acid and benzoic acid, which currently have global market value of $60 billion and $200 million, respectfully. This project foc...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Advanced Renewable Technology International Inc

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02C-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Less than 1% of the worlds water is considered freshwater. Population growth and intensive use in cities and agro industrial activities threatens the depletion of this resource in many parts of the world. This depletion poses many major social and economic concerns. As a result, efforts have been made to develop economically viable technologies ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: OmegaChea Biorenewables LLC

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EB-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to develop and commercialize a new scalable manufacturing capability that will produce bio-based chemicals for surfactants, lubricants, and polymers. At the core of this new manufacturing platform is a re-designed microorganism that incorporates novel enzymes that determine ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: VSI Aerospace Inc.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T003
Budget: 04/11/12 - 10/11/12

This STTR is aimed at developing methods and tools to characterize the impact of free-play on control surface flutter and overall stability and performance of the system. A successful completion of this two-phased STTR effort will lead to a modeling, analysis, design, and simulation tool that will provide a state-of-the-art capability for stabil...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT30
Budget: 11/23/11 - 08/23/12

ABSTRACT: In this STTR program, Agiltron and Iowa State University (ISU) jointly propose to develop simple material and structural solutions that enable directionally dependent emission in the infrared regime. The highly directional infrared emission has extremely narrow emission patterns and a large difference between high and low emission stat...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: VSI Aerospace Inc.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T003
Budget: 07/30/10 - 07/13/11

The aerodynamic performance of aircraft is significantly impacted by the aero-elastic dynamics of its control surfaces. In particular, the dynamics of flutter - an unstable self-excitation of structure due to undesirable coupling of structural flexibility and aerodynamics - has critical impact on the stability and performance of aircraft. The co...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Ues, Inc.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT30
Budget: 06/15/10 - 03/15/11

Military applications for CBRNE/GWTO and C4ISR require R&D for materials to protect personnel and equipment. However, challenges remain in experimental synthesis and characterization of new materials, such as providing insight into observed properties for further advancement. Thus, it is essential to develop a predictive modeling and simulatio...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectral Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT40
Budget: 05/01/10 - 01/31/11

Increased computational speed and improved numerical algorithms have made computational chemistry an important tool in the development of new chemical compounds and processes. In particular, single-reference coupled cluster (CC) methods, such as CCSD(T), provide an excellent compromise between speed and accuracy in applications involving molecu...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF07-T037
Budget: 10/21/08 - 10/21/10

This program will demonstrate, for the first time, a commercial prototype high power fiber laser in the 3-5µm band, based on Agiltron chalcogenide glass infrared optical fiber technology. High power IR lasers that emit multiwatt output at various infrared wavelengths in the 212µm region are a long-standing technical challenge. Fiber lasers, wide...
