17 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: MFS Technovation Corp

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 29e
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Gray cast iron piping is the most common pipe material in North America. Based on the high carbon content, graphitic needles or flakes are a common feature in these alloys. As a result, these areas of super-saturated carbon will consistently establish galvanic attack of the adjacent iron matrix, especially when in the presence of most ionic liqu...

Topic: 02b
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

Geosteering is the act of adjusting the borehole position based on real time measurements in the process of drilling, which is used to keep a well in a pay zone, prevent drilling risks such as water breakthrough, and increase hydrocarbon production. One of the most effective techniques used in geosteering is based on directional electromagnetic ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Houston

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

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is that it will benefit healthcare by improving patient outcome and procedural efficiency. While Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is increasingly used to guide interventions, this is challenged by the limited access to the patient inside the...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SkywriterRX, Inc.

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: IT
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will be to bring modern data analytics to the book publishing industry and apply machine learning to extract and articulate human emotion as applied to the reading of literature for the first time in history. This innovation will dramaticall...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Physics, Materials & Applied Math Resear

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT31
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: This proposal translates a non-toxic, aqueous-based, near room temperature electrodeposition process to completely eliminate Cr (VI) for the production of wear and corrosion resistant surfaces on high-strength steel. Specifically, our process will produce adherent and crack-free Re-based coatings that are extremely high-temperature (Tm...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectral Energies, LLC

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT15
Budget: 06/03/13 - 03/03/14

ABSTRACT: This Phase-I research effort is designed to forward the engineering investigation of the dynamics and control of turbulent combustion in high-pressure combustion systems by developing a set of game-changing nonlinear analysis tools that can significantly improve the post-processing speed and intelligent data mining of large numerical o...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: American Maglev Technology of Florida, I

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T028
Budget: 06/27/11 - 04/27/12

AMT proposes a high density energy storage Electromechanical Battery (EMB) based on a unique flywheel system. The proposed module can both receive and deliver significant amounts of energy repeatedly. The system employs a novel ac homopolar motor design which guarantees a zero magnetic and dissipative loss during the storage cycle, thus eliminat...

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: ME-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop roll-to-roll processing of highly efficient, thin film photovoltaics on inexpensive polycrystalline substrates. The innovation lies in an architecture that yields near-single-crystalline thin films even on polycrystalline substrates. This innovation will be combined...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Materials & Electrochemical Research

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T017
Budget: 09/29/09 - 03/28/11

The feasibility of developing advanced Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) with ultrahigh loading of well dispersed carbon nanotubes has been proven in the Phase I effort by implementing innovative technologies for incorporating very high loading ratios of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) in a set of engineering polymer matrices that resulted...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Hi-z Technology, Inc.

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will evaluate a novel approach to fabricate high efficiency quantum well thermoelectric films on low thermal conductivity, affordable substrates. Hi-Z Technology has made significant advances ...
