20 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Kyma Technologies, Inc.

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T023
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

High power, high voltage switching via semiconductor materials is attractive from a size, weight, and profile perspective. The Baliga figure of merit for high voltage for Ga2O3 is 3,415 (relative to Si), which suggests this material is well-suited for power device applications. Kyma Technologies proposes to design a deposition system capable of ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Brimrose Corporation of America

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST13B-002
Budget: 02/07/14 - 08/09/14

There is an acute need for low-power, low-cost, portable mid-wave infrared (MWIR) thermal imaging systems. Current HgCdTe focal plane array (FPA) detectors have high fabrication cost and require low operating temperature. Recent advances in quantum dot (Q

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 06F-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

An enormous amount of energy from burning hydrocarbon fuels is wasted as heat in vehicle exhaust gas. The goal of this project is to improve vehicle efficiency and reduce fuel consumption by converting some of this heat into electric power. We will develop a solid state thermoelectric generator (TEG) that can efficiently produce electric power f...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Rivis, Inc.

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT25
Budget: 11/16/10 - 11/16/12

ABSTRACT: The potential of scramjet engines for use by the U.S. military would revolutionize countermeasures enabling rapid responses to global hot spots. The scramjet traveling at hypersonic speed cannot use rotary power typically employed at sub-Mach velocities, while auxiliary power units and batteries add weight, volume, and system complexi...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Cyan Systems

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-T004
Budget: 10/20/10 - 10/20/12

In SFPA Phase I we developed a common ROIC that does not limit the performance of the emerging FPAs This ROIC uses a low noise input circuit and will facilitate direct comparison of the results obtained between different groups that may be using different SLS material combinations, unit cell designs or fabrication process, and especially differe...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: CFD Research Corp.

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A10A-T016
Budget: 09/27/10 - 03/30/11
PI: Yi Wang

Accurate real-time waterborne pathogen detection is of paramount importance to security of U.S. military forces and installations. Fieldable high-throughput pathogen concentration is a critical analytical need for enhanced detection performance. Existing concentration methods are time-consuming, bulky, labor-intensive, power- and reagent-hungry,...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Rivis, Inc.

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT25
Budget: 06/04/09 - 03/04/10

Development of a compliant microfabricated heat exchanger to work with thermoelectric devices as a means of power generation for hypersonic vehicles is proposed. Polymer-based materials provide to provide compression on the thermoelectric module, to ensure optimal thermal contact, while allowing for compliance to allow for the change in material...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Cyan Systems

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-T004
Budget: 02/17/09 - 08/17/09

This SuperPixel FPA (SFPA) will achieve a fast track enhancement of existing technology that effectively allows improved detection and discrimination of existing and emerging threats. Cyan is working with Research Triangle Institute, who has recently developed and demonstrated Lead Tin Telluride (PbSnTe) detectors for high temperature operation...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Luna Innovations, Inc.

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF07-T001
Budget: 10/29/08 - 10/29/10

The Air Force has an immediate need for powering remote wireless sensor networks (WSN) on aircraft platforms. These WSN systems are needed for monitoring engine emissions/conditions, evaluating structural integrity, and supplying remote sensing capabilities in support of ongoing battlefield activities. However, aircraft sensors are generally i...
