The US Air Force seeks to commercialize through licensing an easy-to-implement, robust, and accurate method for contact angle measurement: the Transition Angle Method (TAM). TAM is applicable to both wetting and non-wetting liquids in static and dynamic situations.
Photonics & Sensors
The US Army Research Laboratory-Adelphi seeks licensees to commercialize an improved SiC GTO Thyristor design.
The U.S. Air Force seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a microscopy/lithography technology that corrects for a variety of aberrations in lenses and mirrors. This allows for the use of inexpensive, imperfect optics as the objective lens to image objects with sub-micron resolution. This invention has been reduced for 2D but is equally applicable for 3D imaging.
The US Naval Air Warfare Center seeks a partner to license and commercialize a medical imaging technology that provides high resolution images at a relatively low cost.
The U.S. Army seeks to commercialize through patent licensing an apparatus for testing the functionality of ammunition magazines. The invention expedites confirmation of the reliability of fault-prone critical firearm components.
Scour has been linked to nearly 95% of all severely damaged and failed highway bridges constructed over waterways in the United States (Leftor, 1993). This is a hazardous condition caused by currents transporting sediments away from bridge piers and similar structures during times of rapid river flow. Scour ablation and deposition can occur during a single high energy flow event, making it difficult to detect deterioration of the structural foundation. This is further complicated by the presence of ice and debris in the waterway.
The US Air Force seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a technology for a high performance, easy-to-manufacture cold cathode.
The United States Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division seeks industry partners to license and commercialize the Field Programmable Multi-Light
The US Navy seeks industry partners to license and commercialize an exemplary acoustic emission technique for monitoring and evaluating electromagnetic radiating devices. Applicable EM radiating devices include traveling wave tubes, cross-field amplifiers, magnetrons, klystrons and solid state devices.
The US Navy seeks a partner to license and commercialize a patent-pending technology to properly torque small connections in tight spaces
The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a new magnetostrictive smart material with excellent characteristics for use in sensors, actuators, energy harvesting applications, and active structural supports.
The US Naval Research Laboratory has developed a system to detect trace amounts of explosives, drugs, and other chemicals from a stand-off distance.
The US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has developed a system for the detection of Special Nuclear Materials. DTRA seeks a commercial partner for further development and licensing.
High throughput IR spectrometer with no-moving parts and immunity to scene changes
