25 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Histogen, Inc.

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BM
Budget: 03/15/17 - 02/28/19

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is to overcome limitations that prevent effective treatment of wound infections. There is a large potential market for this product as the U.S. spends over $50 billion per year on wound care and current wound care products have a high risk ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Battery Resourcers LLC

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is to improve the recycling rates and efficiency of lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries, as well as lower the cost of cathode materials for Li-ion batteries. This research project will accomplish these goals by recovering cathode material from a broad s...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Histogen, Inc.

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

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

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to overcome limitations that prevent effective treatment of major wound infections. The U.S. spends over $50 billion per year on wound care; thus there is a large potential market for this product. Current wound care products have a high ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Polycel Inc

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 03B-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Adding thermal insulation to existing building envelopes can be an effective way of reducing building energy use. While most thermal insulation materials are affordable, the cost of installing thermal insulation into existing buildings can be expensive. Real facades are also characterized by many unique elements that affect their r...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: ORB Analytics

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will involve research on and development of a reconfigurable wireless platform enabling broadband communications in rural areas via secondary access of television white spaces (TVWS) spectrum. The recently ratified IEEE standard, 802.22, is the most promising technique proposed for ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Aerodyne Research, Inc.

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 03B-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Aerodyne Research Inc. (ARI) and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) propose to design a high- pressure slurry pump for the delivery of biomass solids into a high-pressure hydrothermal reactor for biofuel production. Biomass conversion techniques involving a hydrothermal phase have many advantages over other biomass conversion method...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T021
Budget: 06/25/12 - 04/26/13

Agiltron, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), will build and test the Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS), a stereoscopic vision system to provide 3-D location and mapping capability for the navigation of firefighting robotic systems. IRIS is based on Agiltron s uncooled photomechanical thermal imaging technology that e...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ORB Analytics, LLC

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: ES-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will involve research on and development of a reconfigurable wireless platform enabling secondary access of wireless spectrum via simultaneous data transmission across several disjoint frequency channels. In particular, the proposed innovations will advance the current state-of-the-a...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Infoscitex Corp.

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T028
Budget: 06/27/11 - 04/27/12

The DOD has enacted an energy strategy that calls for both smarter energy usage and employment of alternative energy sources such that foreign oil reliance can be reduced and an increase in overall operational efficiency can be achieved. Localized generation presents an exciting opportunity for energy users in general, and the DOD specifically, ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Kazak Composites, Inc.

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST071-002
Budget: 08/21/10 - 01/31/13

An innovative hydraulic spreader tool that can be powered by liquid fuel or manual means is proposed. The advanced development of the spreader tool will follow a step-wise progression of computer-aided design followed by physical construction, demonstration and government review until the full performance requirements have been met and a hand-he...
