10 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Materials Research and Design, Inc.

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Woven TPS (WTPS) is an attractive option for thermal protection because it allows for a design to be tailored to a specific mission ? material composition can be adjusted by weaving different fiber types together and controlling their placement using computer-controlled, automated, 3D weaving technology. NASA?s HEEET program is responsible for t...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Advanced Ceramics Manufacturing

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-T10.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Legacy refractory materials that have origins dating to the original Saturn program are commonly used in current launch facilities. Although they fail to meet the target requirements, they are the only approved material. Our research team has demonstrated a baseline system during the Phase I effort that combines a non-cement binder, a high temp...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Advanced Ceramics Manufacturing

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-T10.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Legacy refractory materials that have origins dating to the original Saturn program are commonly used in current launch facilities. Although they failure to meet the target requirements, they are the only approved material. Our research team proposed to develop an ultra high temperature refractory system that uses a non-cement binder, a high te...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Advanced Ceramics Manufacturing

Institution: Villanova University

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project seeks to develop biomimetic structures in engineering ceramics based on the damage-tolerant sea shell micro-architecture. Poor damage tolerance of engineering ceramics leads to catastrophic failure modes under stress, which restricts their structural utility. In extreme conditions, ceramic...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Ablaze Development Corp.

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T032
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

The key technical objective of the Phase I effort will be the successful development of lightweight compact structures that can be applied to vehicles, either as add-on structures or as an integral part of the vehicle. This will be accomplished through analysis, simulation, practical experience, intuition and experimentation, with the aid of ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Colorado Engineering Inc.

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-T003
Budget: 11/19/08 - 11/19/10

Colorado Engineering, Inc (CEI) is a small woman owned business with a wealth of engineering expertise in the development of software and hardware systems for DoD combat, weapon and sensor systems has teamed with Villanova University to develop the SHAPE system. The measuring and mapping of community development in order to adjust tactics, as w...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: UOV

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-T021
Budget: 04/29/08 - 03/31/09

The objective of Phase II is tome complete design and development work to support Spiral One of an Energy Scavenging Unmanned Surface Vehicle - USV(ES). This Phase will leverage the significant design, development and testing completed on a full scale model vehicle in Phase I. The work will be done in three increments: requirements review, cri...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Colorado Engineering Inc.

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-T003
Budget: 09/14/07 - 09/14/08

Colorado Engineering, Inc (CEI) is a small woman owned business with a wealth of engineering expertise in the development of software and hardware systems for DOD combat, weapon and sensor systems. The measuring and mapping of community development in order to adjust tactics, as well insert stimuli to direct future change, is a purely systemic ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Adaptive Digital Technologies

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T022
Budget: 08/01/05 - 05/01/06

This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using narrow signal bandwidths, typically deployed f...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Princeton Scientific Instruments, Inc.

Institution: Villanova University

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

The elemental composition of meteors is one of the keys to understanding their origin and in turn the evolution of the solar system. Spectroscopic measurement of the emission spectra of meteors as they are heated by entry into the Earth's atmosphere can yield this information. An objective-grating spectrograph instrument payload designed to capt...
