44 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Vuronyx Technologies

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T008
Budget: 08/15/16 - 02/07/17

Vuronyx Technologies and Prof. Marya Lieberman at the University of Notre Dame will develop paper analytical devices (idPADs) to presumptively identify illicit drugs. All the reagents needed to perform twelve different chemical color tests are stored on the idPAD. The user rubs the powder to be tested across the PAD, then dips the PAD in water ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: MZA Assoc. Corp.

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T001
Budget: 06/08/16 - 06/08/17

MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to transition the Navys HEFL Beam Director Subsystem (HBDS) for flight testing on the Airborne Aero-Optics Laboratory Transonic (AAOL-T) aircraft. We will reconfigure the HBDS integrating structure and aft beam control system to fit the cabin constraints of the AAOL-T aircraft with an aft ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T006
Budget: 05/11/16 - 12/30/16
PI: Ray Chan

MicroLink Devices proposes to integrate its novel, high-efficiency, lightweight, and flexible solar sheet technology to a small unmanned aircraft system (UAS) that will provide a significant source of power, enabling long endurance flights spanning one full day to several days of continuous operation. This will be a breakthrough technology that ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T003
Budget: 03/01/16 - 03/05/18

MicroLink Devices in collaboration with University of Notre Dame will develop composite lightweight, high-efficiency, epitaxial lift-off (ELO) inverted metamorphic (IMM) triple junction solar cells ideally suited for retrofitting current generation UAVs and integration with next generation platforms in order to substantially increase mission dur...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc.

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT19
Budget: 07/23/15 - 04/25/16

ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hype...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SA Photonics

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T014
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

This proposal describes an all optical fixed wing landing system for a aircraft carrier capable of flying an aircraft all the way to landing in a RF denied environment. The precision, reliability and accuracy of this system will allow control the aircraft without the help from the pilot all the way to touch down. It will work seamlessly with UAV...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: MZA Assoc. Corp.

Institution: University of Notre Dame

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

ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to extend MZAs WaveTrain wave-optics sensor simulation framework to model EO/IR sensors operating on hypersonic aircraft. ?Following the methods we have developed for aero-optical imaging through subsonic, transonic, and supersonic flows, existing WaveTrain libraries will be expa...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Contect, Inc.

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: SH
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is found in the creation of a faster, more portable, affordable, and reliable concussion screening tool. This is important because of the large number of concussions occurring during youth sport events (estimates range between 2 and 4 millio...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: MZA Assoc. Corp.

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T001
Budget: 11/26/14 - 12/01/15

MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to transition our computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of aero-optical disturbances, beam control development, and wave-optics system modeling from rotary wing aircraft to the transonic fligh

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T003
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

MicroLink Devices and the University of Notre Dame propose to develop an ultra-lightweight, high-efficiency, GaAs-based, multi-junction solar cell that will be suitable for use in future platforms requiring very high specific power (>3.0 kW/kg) and very high areal power density (>370 W/m2). We will achieve this result by reducing the metal conte...
