The US Navy seeks to commercialize through licensing a suite of advanced, reliable, and versatile test fixtures for material tensile and shear testing that allows for much more accurate determination of strength and stiffness properties. The base patent accommodates a choice of independent or simultaneous application of in-plane shear and multi-axial loadings on a swatch of material.

The United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Space Vehicles Directorate seeks industry partners to license and commercialize a Biologically Inspired Multifunctional Composite Panel with Integrated Thermal Control.
The US Air Force seeks licensees for a novel method of producing doped solid optical materials which significantly reduces cost, increases speed of production, and dramatically improves material performance.
The US Air Force 711th Human Performance Wing seeks a partner to license and commercialize a process represented in US patent no. 8,415,452, "Hexavalent Chromium and Total Chromium Removal from Polychlorinated Vinyl Chloride (PVC) Polymers"
Composite materials that are subject to vibration and stress form small fractures and eventually fail irreversibly at the interface of the polymer matrix and the reinforcing fiber. The US Army and Drexel University have developed a solution to this problem by incorporating reversible bonds into polymer networks. The technology combines a furan-functionalized thermoset matrix and a maleimide-functionalized glass fiber.

The US Air Force seeks a partner to license and commercialize novel thermosetting resins that offer high thermal stability with ease of processing.
Metal organic frameworks are a leading class of porous materials for a wide variety of applications, such as gas storage, separations, catalysis, and even toxic gas removal. However, many MOFs that are highly active towards toxic chemicals are prone to decomposition due to moisture. Many efforts have focused on developing MOFs that are air-stable and water-stable so they can survive harsh field environments.
