13 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Innovelix, Inc.

Institution: Florida International University

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

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project will go beyond wearable sensors. This project is expected to yield significant societal benefits on health and quality of life, as the proposed technology will be able to support the safe powering and communication of novel wireless systems that will enable next generation applications; inc...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T010
Budget: 07/14/08 - 02/14/09

The objective of proposed Phase I study is to demonstrate feasibility of alloy design for corrosion resistance of aircraft aluminum alloys via the computational optimization route. The basic methodology involves the use of experimental corrosion data of relevant alloys over a wide range of compositions as input data. Optimization algorithm will ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Vipmobile, Inc.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T034
Budget: 06/23/08 - 04/24/09

Currently developed and deployed communications systems, such as the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS,) already have the capability of providing multi-channel and multi-protocol high performance wireless communication. However, many of these systems have been delivered with high costs, high complexity, and with performance shortfalls, due prima...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Omega-p, Inc.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The luminosity of circular proton-antiproton colliders is limited by interactions of one beam upon the other, leading to beam blowup and other problems. Electron lenses have been shown to be effective at compensating for both long- and short-range beam-on-beam interactions. However, existing cathodes are inadequate for next-generation electron...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T023
Budget: 09/01/06 - 09/01/08

Based on in-depth experience with advanced optical ceramics, nano-particle coating, nanoceramic sintering and superplasticity deformation, in this program, Agiltron, Inc. and Florida International University propose to develop next generation airframe and engine materials made of CNT/alumina nano-composites. The proposed approach uniquely combin...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T023
Budget: 08/30/06 - 05/30/07

The proposed work will be directed towards developing aluminum-based crystalline and glassy/amorphous coating using thermal spray techniques (plasma and cold spray) for the corrosion protection of high-strength aluminum alloys (2024 and 7075). The coating material should be anodic to the base material for protection against galvanic corrosion. G...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Nanomaterials Company

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY03-T24
Budget: 07/11/06 - 01/11/08

Knowledge of and the ability to manipulate matter at the nanoscale offers the materials designer an independent degree of freedom and the ability to express new properties not exhibited by bulk materials. The new chemical or physical properties expressed is a result of a disproportion number of atoms or ions residing at the surface or grain boun...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Plasma Processes, LLC.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Molybdenum has been identified as a promising material for many high temperature NASA applications due to its high melting temperature, resistance to liquid metals, resistance to hot hydrogen, high thermal conductivity, and relatively low density. However, molybdenum's ductile to brittle transition temperature is above room temperature, which m...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T023
Budget: 08/02/05 - 05/02/06

Based on in-depth experience with advanced optical ceramics, nano-particle coating, nanoceramic sintering and superplasticity deformation, in this program, AGILTRON Inc. and Florida International University, and University of California at Davis propose to develop next generation airframe and engine materials made of CNT/alumina nano-composites....

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Nanomat, Inc.

Institution: Florida International University

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY03-T24
Budget: 09/07/04 - 09/06/05

The interest in the Phase II project on nanocapsules of biomolecules and nanomaterial lies in its ability to act as dual functionality like detection and neutralization simultaneously. Significant effort have been made by the defense as well as commercial sectors, however, there is no technology till now to provide dual functionality. During Pha...
