53 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: KOPESS AgTech LLC

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 12/15/16 - 11/30/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the development of drought-tolerant crops through biotechnology, which is potentially both economically and environmentally important. Genetic engineering of drought tolerance has been very recalcitrant because of the complexity of plant response...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: KOPESS Biomass Solutions, LLC

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20u
Budget: 03/01/16 - 11/21/16

International demand for wood has grown steadily in the past few decades due to the growth in the world’s population and is expected to continue to grow rapidly as policies promoting greater use of renewable energy are adopted globally. Providing over 9% of the global primary energy supply, wood energy is as important as other renewable energy s...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: DetectIR Technologies, Inc

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T007
Budget: 01/25/16 - 07/24/16
PI: Ning Xi

DetectIR Technologies, along with Michigan State University, proposes to develop a 3D IR imaging system by integrating carbon nanotube (CNT) based IR detector technology with a compressive sensing method. This proposed effort will produce a portable, non-cryogenic-cooled 3D IR camera that will provide quality 3D images at video frame rates. ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Triton Systems, Inc.

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Topic: DTRA14B-005
Budget: 09/16/15 - 04/15/16
PI: Jae Ryu

A drop-in 3He-tube replacement technology for thermal neutron detection does not exist today. It is critical for homeland security and nuclear safeguards applications. In this program, Triton Systems proposes to develop a light-weight, large-area, high efficiency portable neutron detector for passive interrogation using an innovative gas detecto...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Tech-X Corporation

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT33
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: Wireless communications, radar, and biological detection require electronic components operating in the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. ?GaAs metal semiconductor field effect transistor and nanoscale CMOS technologies have demonstrated high frequency capabilities and will likely benefit from future material systems and device archite...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Metna Co.

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT04
Budget: 11/01/14 - 10/31/16
PI: Jue Lu

Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) offers superior properties for structural applications. Existing UHPC design and production methods employ special materials and mixers. This project is developing mix design and fabrication methods for reliable production of UHPC with local materials and facilities. The Phase I project devised material sel...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Virtual EM, Inc.

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T015
Budget: 01/29/14 - 07/28/15

Virtual EM is proposing a solution for achieving electrically small high-efficiency VHF transmit antennas suitable for use on medium size Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In the proposed approach, maximum use of the UAV s airframe for the antenna improves radiation efficiency while dynamic reconfiguration of the antenna aperture provides frequen...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Salgomed, Inc.

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to develop an integrated computational and experimental platform based on the hypothesis that the efficacy of anticancer drugs could be greatly improved when used in combination with other drugs. The proposed platform will implement in vitro search algorithms for combination...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Namesforlife, Llc

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 34B-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) was envisioned to provide a framework for modeling dynamic cellular processes of microorganisms, plants and metacommunities. The KBase will provide the tools and data to enable rapid iteration of experiments that draw on a wide variety of data and allow end-users to infer how cells and communities re...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Piezonix LLC

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: SH-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Yang Liu

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will be a significant transformation-changing reactive orthopedic surgery into proactive, preventive and cost-effective surgery. The project will have a direct positive impact on the quality of orthopedic surgery practice while reducing sign...
