20 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Biena Tech LLC

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 01/01/17 - 12/31/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase-I project is in the development of low cost, environmentally-friendly coating materials for corrosion prevention. Corrosion is a significant global issue, resulting in high maintenance and repair costs. Current anti-corrosion coatings need an improvem...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Applied Physical Electronics, L.c.

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T023
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

Direct conversion of DC energy to RF energy via switched systems such as Class D, E, and F amplifiers is limited by the switches currently available. Presently available switches are voltage limited, resistive transition time limited, and rate of current rise limited. Furthermore, high power switched amplifiers are limited by the thermal dissipa...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Geneshifters, LLC

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of wheat yields by introducing newly identified dwarfing genes. The currently used dwarfing genes, which were instrumental in bringing about the "green revolution", are at least partly responsible for this bottleneck. These dwarfi...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Pulsar Informatics Inc.

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T033
Budget: 01/30/13 - 07/30/13

This project will achieve an unobtrusive, wearable sensor array to collect environmental, physiological, and subjective measures associated with physical and cognitive fatigue. The proposed innovation, called the Warfighter Fatigue Data Acquisition System (WFDAS), will be an unobtrusive, modular sensor array to capture, synchronize, and download...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Benson Hill Biosystems, Inc.

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: AS-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to improve intrinsic crop yield through metabolic engineering of photosynthetic pathways. Genes encoding five rate-limiting enzymes for photosynthesis and starch synthesis will be co-expressed constitutively or in a cell-specific manner in a model C4 plant species. Multiple ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Pulsar Informatics Inc.

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T033
Budget: 06/27/11 - 04/27/12

This project will achieve an unobtrusive, wearable sensor array to collect environmental, physiological, and subjective measures associated with physical and cognitive fatigue.

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Infinia Corp.

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-T002
Budget: 02/24/10 - 08/24/10

The cost of logistical fuels, including transportation and distribution, is significant. According to the Defense Energy Support Center, nearly $3B was spent on fuel in 2007. The increasing use of electronics is driving a growing need for shelter air conditioning, which in turn is another demand for fuel. Existing Environmental Control Units (EC...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-T2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

IFOS and its research institute collaborator, Washington State University (WSU), have demonstrated feasibility of a structural health monitoring (SHM) system for aerospace vehicles such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or commercial airliners. In Phase 1, a unique high-speed, high-channel count fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor interrogation sy...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation (IFOS) in collaboration with Washington State University (WSU) proposes an approach of utilizing structurally integrated, distributed optical FBG sensor/piezo actuator arrays to monitor the health of a structure with accurate interpretation of sensor signals and real-time data processing. Our method i...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: United Environment & Energy Llc

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: Ben Wen

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project aims at developing a novel bioasphalt production technology using a recycled agricultural byproduct and recycled coal-fired power plant waste. Demand for asphalt in the United States is projec...
