66 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Solargasoline LLC

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MN
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16
PI: Cong Wang

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is in the development of a transformative carbon dioxide sequestration technology that can convert carbon dioxide and water directly into gasoline fuels with unprecedented efficiency, with sunlight as the only energy input. The technology is based on earth abundant metals as photo-catalysts...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Aurora Flight Sciences Corp.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T10.02
Budget: 07/17/15 - 07/16/17

After successfully demonstrating the basic functionality of a damage-detecting, self-healing 'smart' material system in Phase I, Aurora and UMass Lowell aim to advance the material technology to a TRL 5 in Phase II. The team will use their 'smart' material system to design and manufacture various scaled-up core-stiffened composite specimens in a...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SI2 Technologies

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T021
Budget: 08/04/14 - 06/04/15

SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to develop printed, high-efficiency phased arrays operating at Navy-relevant frequencies. The proposed development effort will include trade studies identifying the best printing technique or combination of techniques to meet the Navy s phased array performance goals. The printed array will incorporate both ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Aurora Flight Sciences Corp.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT09
Budget: 05/15/14 - 07/01/14

ABSTRACT: Aurora will demonstrate on our automated fiber placement (AFP) machine that we are able to lay up composite panels that contain sacrificial fibers that can be thermally decomposed to create a microvascular network of small cavities that allow the panel to act as a heat exchanger. The AFP machine is capable of producing composite parts...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Aurora Flight Sciences Corp.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-T10.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

During Phase I, Aurora Flight Sciences and the University of Massachusetts Lowell propose to demonstrate the feasibility of enhancing a commercially available out-of-autoclave (OOA) carbon prepreg material system (e.g. IM7/5320) via embedded structural health monitoring (SHM) and self-healing capabilities, which can be manufactured by an automat...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Boston Engineering Corp.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST12A-002
Budget: 08/07/13 - 11/09/15

Boston Engineering s Advanced Systems Group is collaborating with Prof. Holly Yanco at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell to develop a design science for robot-operator interfaces under a DARPA Phase I STTR program. Our program, called Robot Linked User Control and Interface Design (R-LUCID), is aimed at distilling and understanding the ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Applied Nanofemto Technologies LLC

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-T4.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Photodetectors and focal plane arrays (FPAs) covering the middle-wave and longwave infrared (MWIR/LWIR) are of great importance in numerous NASA applications, including earth remote sensing for carbon-based trace gases, Lidar mapping for earth resource locating, and environment and atmosphere monitoring. Existing MWIR/LWIR photodetectors have a ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Nanotrons Corp.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T024
Budget: 12/13/12 - 06/13/13

The US Army seeks novel engineered polymer nanomaterials with high conductivity and indices of refraction suitable for use in next generation of obscurant materials. In this program Nanotrons Corporation, in collaboration with Professor Zhiyong Gu at NSF Nanomanufacturing Research Center at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML), proposes...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Boston Engineering Corp.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB12A-002
Budget: 06/28/12 - 08/29/13

Boston Engineering s Advanced Systems Group and Dr. Holly Yanco s team at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell propose to develop a design science for robot operator interfaces and demonstrate its application through existing design tools and prototype systems that reduce operator training time, maximize the ability of an operator - robot t...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10B-T046
Budget: 05/23/12 - 11/23/13

There is a need to find more efficient methods for producing high-density, liquid, tactical fuels for use in missile propulsion or as components to improve key performance characteristics of currently available jet and diesel fuels. Generation of such fuels from renewable sources including waste cellulose, grasses, waste agricultural material an...
