Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Glucan Biorenewables LLC

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09c
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

This timely research will address the major challenge of depolymerizing cellulose to generate high quantities of nanocellulose in a more energy efficient and cost effective manner. The overarching objective is to manufacture nanocellulose at a lower unit production cost and make it widely available for numerous emerging market applications. This...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Moai Technologies, LLC

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EW
Budget: 09/15/15 - 08/31/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is the assistive use by blind people of thermal imaging. The resulting product provides a person who is blind or visually impaired with the relevant information about the layout of an unfamiliar public space in order to assist blind users in everyday activities. Thermal imaging can differen...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Revolution Research Inc.

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI
Budget: 07/01/15 - 06/30/16

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop a novel, environmentally-friendly thermal insulation composite foam board. The environmental and economic impacts of energy production and use are key areas of concern in the world today. One of the largest uses of energy is for heating and cooling of buildings; thus con...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SAN Diego Composites, Inc.

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-T010
Budget: 07/30/14 - 03/02/15

San Diego Composites (SDC), Inc. is teamed with the University of Maine and Raytheon Missile Systems to provide the solution for corrosion of Missile Defense Agency assets in harsh marine environments: innovative design and application of high performing composite components. It is well known that composite materials are inherently corrosion r...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Moai Technologies, LLC

Institution: University of Maine

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will leverage past National Science Foundation Funded research to prove that a blind/low vision user can receive practical navigation and interaction information about their environment from a multimodal thermogram (thermal image) interface on a smartphone. There are no prac...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Alba-technic, LLC

Institution: University of Maine

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

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project lies in the ability to manufacture customized non-stigmatizing, attractive headgear containing advanced materials to provide protection in older adults from head injury as a result from a fall. Injury from falls is a severe and growing problem with the personal consequence of potential seve...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: KaZaK Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T022
Budget: 07/01/13 - 04/30/14

KaZaK Technologies and our program subcontractors and technical associates our proposing several concepts to significantly increase rim rotational velocity and increase storage energy density/ unit as identified by the Navy as a pre-requisite for shipboard integration of flywheel energy stowage systems. These systems have the potential to reduce...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Orono Spectral Solutions, Inc.

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT09
Budget: 03/29/12 - 12/29/12

ABSTRACT: The goal of this Phase I STTR project is to investigate the application of a new class of metallic nanoparticles exhibiting a star-shaped geometry (nanostars) for use as in vivo probes of chemical and biological warfare agents. In contrast to their more commonplace spherical cousins, particles with this novel geometry have recently ga...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: SeaChange Group LLC

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Department of Energy Small Business Technology Transfer Research Phase I project proposal aims to develop an intensive thermo chemical conversion method of biomass to non-ethanol biofuels. There is a substantial need for alternative sources of domestic transportation fuels to displace demand for foreign oil imports. Petroleum imports are pr...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Orono Spectral Solutions, Inc.

Institution: University of Maine

Agency: Army
Topic: A10A-T018
Budget: 09/13/11 - 09/12/13

The overall goal of this Phase II project is to develop a prototype micro-fluidic sampling system that will lead to a field-deployable detection system capable of detecting low ppb levels of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and explosive precursors in water. The proposed work will capitalize on Phase I successes in which the feasibility of using ...
