20 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Ngimat CO.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T010
Budget: 07/21/15 - 01/17/16

In this STTR effort nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky to develop a new process for manufacturing scandia-doped tungsten powder for use in vacuum tube cathode devices. While a significant amount of research over the last several decades has shown promise for scandate cathode materials, reliable manufacturing processes that enabl...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Charles River Analytics, Inc.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T011
Budget: 02/22/13 - 02/19/14

Socio-cultural factors are increasingly being recognized as critical to effective military operations. Therefore, collection and analysis of socio-cultural data is required to provide Warfighters with a comprehensive understanding of their operational environment. Warfighters need tools that enable the capture, management, and rapid analysis of ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Spectrum Magnetics, LLC

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-T01
Budget: 02/21/13 - 07/21/13
PI: Hao Zhu

The proposed SBIR Phase I program is to develop a novel nanobulb flotation method with high efficiency and rare earth mineral recovery rate comparing to conventional methods. Significant efforts will focus on the studies of fundamental surface chemistry o

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Green Technology Ltd Co.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 23 A-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

In the context of post-combustion CO2 capture processes, solvents with fast CO2 absorption rates will require more energy for regeneration. This challenge is exacerbated when aqueous solvents are applied to the capture of post-combustion CO2 from a utility gas stream, which contains such unique characteristics as high volumetric flow rate, low C...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Charles River Analytics, Inc.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T011
Budget: 09/27/11 - 03/25/12

Obtaining support from the local population is crucial for successful counterinsurgency (COIN) operations. US forces often fail to adequately understand the ethnographic characteristics of foreign populations warfighters need access to ethnographic methods which help them to rapidly capture and interpret cultural, social, and economic data. A wa...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Creative Electron, Inc.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT01
Budget: 08/15/11 - 05/14/12

ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project will develop carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) material systems incorporating metallic nanoparticles with low-temperature sintering properties to render structures with very high transverse thermal conductivity. CFRPs are already used in a myriad of applications requiring high strength-to-weight ratio, bu...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Green Technology Ltd Co.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 23 A-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will study the feasibility of a novel contaminant-tolerant solvent/stripping chemical hybrid process for post-combustion CO2 capture from utility flue gas. The process will use a proprietary solvent technology to achieve DOEs goal of 90% or greater CO2 emissions reduction at existing coal-f...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Hypercomp, Inc.

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT13
Budget: 01/15/10 - 09/01/10

The leakage of electromagnetic (EM) energy into air vehicles, and particularly into ordnance, poses a hazard that requires careful evaluation. Under current guidelines, such evaluations are primarily to be carried out through extensive testing of items under possible field conditions, a process that can be both time-consuming and costly. The sc...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Vsee LAB LLC

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T003
Budget: 11/17/09 - 12/30/11

During the Phase I period, we have successfully developed and demonstrated all the major technical components to achieve the goal of providing seamless large scale display anywhere, anytime, for any content. Based on the solid foundation we have built from Phase I, we plan to improve and integrate various components to develop intelligent projec...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Direct i2i Technologies Inc

Institution: University of Kentucky

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08
PI: Lei Feng

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) project will develop a novel real-time depth sensor that exploits the inverse square law, e.g., the light radiance falls off as a function of distance. Compared to existing commercial full-frame sensors, it is expected to provide high resolution (e.g. 640x480) depth maps while reducing the ...
