45 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Nano Terra, Inc.

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T015
Budget: 08/26/16 - 02/26/17
PI: Xinhua Li

Even though nonwovens offer significant cost savings over woven fabrics, nonwovens are mostly used for disposable protective clothing, wipes, filters, and geotextiles. The low adoption rate of nonwovens in reusable garments is due to the difficulty in producing fabrics with a combination of desired properties that mimic woven fabrics. For exampl...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: TGV Rockets Inc.

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T1.01
Budget: 07/07/16 - 06/09/17

TGV Rockets, Inc., in partnership with the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, proposes to develop a unique Low-Cost Upper Stage for Affordable Nano/Micro Launch. The stage will make use of a novel eutectic fuel blend that is thermally compatible with liquid-oxygen, unique low-cost lightweight avionics, and simple common-wall tanks. The projec...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: STONY CREEK COLORS, INC.

Institution: University of Tennessee

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

The broader impacts of this Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project relate to the increased viability of indigo as an agricultural crop competing with synthetically manufactured indigo dye. Indigo was among the major global cash crops of the 18th and 19th centuries and accounted for 100% of the indigo dye consumed in the world. Since ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Vextec Corp.

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T004
Budget: 06/16/16 - 01/31/17

The Phase I objective is a proof of concept capability integrating process information, material properties and damage tolerance simulations into the Additive Manufacturing (AM) design certification process. VEXTEC has a toolbox of software and methods that consists of various software modules in multiple formats that are used to assess the dura...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Advanced Powder Solutions

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Advanced turbine component manufacturing process by conventional processes are comprised of multiple steps, turbine components are machined from a forged or rolled billet originally made from casting/ingot metallurgy. As a result a long lead times are required prior to acquisition. General Statement of how this problem being addressed: Rapid fab...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Applied Research LLC

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

We propose high performance image processing algorithms that will support current and future Mastcam imagers. The algorithms fuses the acquired Mastcam stereo images at different wavelengths to generate multispectral image cubes which can then be used for both anomaly detection and rough composition estimation from relatively longer distances wh...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Directed Vapor Technologies Internationa

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T007
Budget: 11/03/15 - 11/01/16

The low density of magnesium makes it of interest for the development of advanced materials having high specific strength and stiffness. Current Mg applications, however, are limited by the performance and cost/quality relationships of existing Mg-alloy systems. One approach to obtain improved Mg alloys is through the development of new alloys a...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Intelligent Automation, Inc.

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T008
Budget: 09/22/15 - 03/27/16

Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop and implement a two-fold spectrum monitor and broadcast system EM-SMART (Electromagnetic Spectrum Monitor, Identification and Broadcast). EM-SMART provides the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) capability to recognize and classify blue force and red force waveforms, and the emulation capability ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Applied Optimization, Inc.

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.04
Budget: 07/06/15 - 07/05/17

The ability to assign a level of confidence for build quality is fundamental to the deployment of powder bed technology. Accordingly, the research objective of this work is to use probability theory as a glue to combine the physics-based models used for the selection of processing parameters together in order to produce quality deposits using t...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectral Energies, LLC

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT38
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: The objective of the STTR Phase-I effort proposed by Spectral Energies LLC and The University of Tennessee is to demonstrate the feasibility of an in situ quantitative measurement of the products generated by the degradation of a material surface exposed to a hypersonic environment. The concept is based on a state-of-the-art diagnostic...
