20 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Zetroz, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: A14A-T016
Budget: 02/15/16 - 07/14/18

Ultrasound is a therapeutic modality which has been used clinically for 60 years, but has been limited in practice by the complexity of the technology. Recent research has allowed for the development of a portable, wearable, long duration, low intensity therapeutic ultrasound system. The system is powered by battery, and can be applied by a us...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Veraphotonics Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Pressurized systems and pressure vessels used in NASA ground-based and flight-based applications including fuel tanks, composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPVs), and composite tankage commonly suffer from several types of degradation including fatigue, cracking, lack of bonding, and leakage. Veraphotonics proposes to develop a pressure vess...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Zetroz, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T016
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Therapeutic ultrasound is a common modality for pain management and rehabilitation therapy which has been clinically utilized for 60 years. Specifically designed ultrasonic devices for accelerated healing and wound site debridement are generally hand-operated bulky systems. As such, they are used on a case-by-case basis with irregular therapeuti...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Analysis, Design & Diagnostics, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T017
Budget: 03/18/14 - 09/18/15

The EAS will be deployed by an LBS-UUV to conduct Naval Oceanographic Surveys in shallow water. The unit will consist of a housing containing a projector, a programmable power amplifier assembly, and a battery pack. The EAS projector will be designed to maximize the percentage of energy projected in the direction of the projector's face. The uni...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Analysis, Design & Diagnostics, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T017
Budget: 06/25/12 - 04/26/13

Our team proposes a unique expendable acoustic source comprised of flexural disc technology in a close packed arrangement that allows for a reduction in resonant frequency and an increase in useful bandwidth. This array will be designed to couple as much energy as possible into the bottom sediments, while coupling as little energy as possible di...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: NEW Span Opto-technology, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T001
Budget: 12/10/09 - 12/10/11

Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording mate...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: NEW Span Opto-technology, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T001
Budget: 09/25/08 - 06/28/09

Mapping awareness of battlefield is increasingly valuable for many military mission planning and activities, particularly in complex urban and mountainous terrain. Currently available two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic sto...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Lewtech Co., Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T021
Budget: 06/30/08 - 04/29/09

Energy extraction is needed for various ocean deployed devices. Extracted energy can be expected to be at various levels and intermittent, but plentiful. The Phase I effort will recommend an extraction technique that directly converts ocean energy into electrical power. The extractor will be inherently self-starting, require no external inputs ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: NEW Span Opto-technology, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-T003
Budget: 09/14/05 - 03/14/06

Long range missile sensors with capability of distinguish missiles from other flying tracks such as aircrafts and SAMs are crucial devices in missile defense systems. The capability of highly accurate angular detection of the missile along with three-component velocity determination is also important. Existing missile warning products cannot mee...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Charles River Analytics, Inc.

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-T019
Budget: 08/01/05 - 05/31/06

We propose to develop an approach to combine model based reasoning with knowledge discovery techniques for enhanced Level 2 and 3 data fusion, especially suitable for detecting asymmetric threats (e.g. ambush, insurgency) in cluttered urban environments. The knowledge discovery part: 1) deploys evidence filtering of large volumes of intelligence...
