34 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Pneumaticoat Technologies LLC

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 15b
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will seek to produce low-cost nanocoated cathode materials for intermediate temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (IT-SOFCs) that deliver improved performance and lifetime, allowing manufacturers to produce high-quality products at reduced active materials costs. SOFC technologies have demon...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Quallion LLC

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA10-T004
Budget: 03/22/13 - 03/21/15

Quallion LLC proposes to continue development of its reference electrode technology into a commercial scale prototype and partner with the University of South Carolina to develop a life prediction model for cells cycled at high depths of discharge. In Phase II, Quallion will refine its reference electrode design based on lessons learned in Phas...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Structured Materials Industries

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T014
Budget: 09/13/12 - 03/12/13

In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop low-cost, planar gas sensors, with high sensitivity and high selectivity. Gas sensors are critical to many existing and emerging applications in defense and homeland security. Present technology gas sensors based on metal oxide films do not have the req...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Weidlinger Assoc., Inc.

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T041
Budget: 11/17/11 - 05/17/13

Aluminum as a structural material for naval applications has a number of advantages over steel, owing mainly to significant weight reductions which translate to higher speed and range attainable by aluminum vessels. A comprehensive study of research needs for aluminum structures identified the key research areas, which included material behavior...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Quallion LLC

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA10-T004
Budget: 07/28/11 - 01/30/12

Quallion LLC is pleased to submit this proposal in response to the solicitation for Modeling of Lithium-ion Cell Performance. This proposal focuses on the area of interest relating to accelerated life testing for LEO because the processes that occur at the anode and cathode at high DoD s (60+%) are poorly understood as to how they relate t...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Quallion LLC

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-T008
Budget: 02/15/10 - 02/14/12

Quallion and the University of South Carolina propose to continue their modeling efforts to develop a more comprehensive LEO simulation model to encompass more varied satellite conditions to meet USG (United States Government) modeling needs.

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Celltech Power, Inc.

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T007
Budget: 09/30/09 - 09/29/10

CellTech Power will continue the development of the Liquid Tin Anode Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (LTA-SOFC) operating directly on JP-8. In this program, a 125 Watt Direct JP-8 stack will be built using CellTech s proven Gen 3.1 cell design. Modular panels of

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T023
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

We propose to develop and commercialize novel normally-off III-Nitride insulated gate heterostructure field effect transistor (MOSHFET) for power converters. Based on our experience in high power insulated gate III-N HFET development, we strongly believe that this device is the most promising for achieving the best combination of low ON-resistan...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: H2 Pump LLC

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T014
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

H2Pump LLC and the University of South Carolina will enhance the purification of impure hydrogen streams generated from the reformation of logistics fuel for use in fuel cells through the application of high temperature polybenzimidazole (PBI) membrane-based electrochemical hydrogen pump (EHP) technology. The effort will extend H2Pump LLC s curr...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Faraday Technology, Inc.

Institution: University of South Carolina

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT17
Budget: 05/12/09 - 02/12/10

In this Phase I STTR program, the project team will develop a mathematical model for the hydrogen permeation inhibiting efficiency for various metals and alloys. Experiments based on the Devanathan-Stachurski method will be used to determine the models kinetic parameters, which control hydrogen permeation. The hydrogen entry efficiency and eff...
