Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Materials Research and Design, Inc.

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.02
Budget: 09/29/16 - 09/28/18

As the power density of advanced engines increases, the need for new materials that are capable of higher operating temperatures, such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), is critical for turbine hot-section static and rotating components. Such advanced materials have demonstrated the promise to significantly increase the engine temperature capa...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Barron Assoc., Inc.

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T012
Budget: 09/16/16 - 09/25/17

Barron Associates, Inc. proposes to develop the Phase II Automated Deployable Robust Training (ADROIT) System, a comprehensive environment to train and deploy vertebrates to detect and mark landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) quickly and accurately. The ADROIT system will be designed to be cost-effective, automated, flexible, scalable, modul...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Commonwealth Computer Research, Inc.

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T020
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

The Navy needs to fuse and distill time-stamped data sources as varied as overhead imagery and Twitter feeds into actionable intelligence such as alerts, on-demand reports about entities of interest, and search capabilities. In order to enable such analytics, it is effective to learn fixed dimensional vectors (embeddings) representing the entiti...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Luna Innovations, Inc.

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T014
Budget: 06/20/16 - 06/19/18

There are numerous regions across modern aircraft that necessitate advanced corrosion solutions in order to protect and maintain their readiness. One such application is the numerous cathodic fasteners that are galvanically coupled to anodic structural materials, like high-strength aluminum alloys. There is a need to bolster corrosion protection...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Mission Secure, Inc.

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T013
Budget: 06/15/16 - 12/12/16

Cyber security forensic functions depend on highly structured conformance to log formats for generation and transmission capabilities including identity, network time stamps and event message formats. Without this structure there is no effective way to reconstruct the time sequencing patterns that reveal the presence of unauthorized actions and ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Areté Associates

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: ST15C-002
Budget: 03/21/16 - 01/20/17
PI: Jim Friel

It has long been known that analog computers can be faster and more power efficient than digital processors by many orders of magnitude. Until the 1970s analog computers were the dominant controllers in most industrial and military applications. Even today digital processors are still slower and more power consumptive than analog, but offer mu...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Combustion Research & Flow Technology

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT21
Budget: 08/04/15 - 05/05/16

ABSTRACT: Methodology for prediction of soot build-up in liquid film-cooled rocket engines will be incorporated into the CRUNCH CFD code, using a reduced-mechanism pyrolysis model and soot formation model developed at University of Virginia. A companion experimental program will be conducted at University of Virginia to collect data for calibrat...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Innoveering, LLC

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT19
Budget: 07/23/15 - 04/25/16

ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. ?A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those p...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Lightspin Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T011
Budget: 07/23/15 - 01/19/16

Ultrasensitive detection of visible light has a wide range of applications, including laser ranging and free-space optical communications. Ultimate sensitivity is achieved when individual return photons are counted with high probabilities of detection, low probabilities of false counts, and high bandwidth. Previously, Vacuum photomultiplier tube...
