Photonics & Sensors
The US Navy seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a method for measuring stress biomarkers such as cortisol in saliva by fluorescence polarization. To complement this method, the Navy is developing a hand-held fluorescence polarimeter (FP) and related rapid tests.
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 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.
The US Navy seeks to commercialize a unique technology which will optimize the formation of an image on a flat detector via a pair of ellipsoidal shaped reflective surfaces.
The U.S. Navy seeks to commercialize a patented technology for microprocessor power reduction through patent licensing and collaborative commercial partnerships. The base patent is U.S. Patent number 7,153,769: Method of Tuning Voltages of Interdiffusible Structures.
A practical, robust, low computational overhead algorithm to obtain high resolution (HR) images from low resolution (LR), under-sampled digital imaging equipment.
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a method for rapidly depositing patterns of active biomolecules and living cells utilizing a focused laser pulse onto various surfaces that could be used, for example, to fabricate protein arrays for proteomics analysis.
The US Army Research Laboratory-Adelphi seeks licensees to commercialize an improved SiC GTO Thyristor design.
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 US Air Force seeks a partner to license and commercialize a new class of atmospheric correction algorithms for estimating surface reflectance in remote sensing imagery collected under less than ideal conditions.
The US Navy seeks to commercialize through patent licensing an easy to implement, real-time, adaptive software system for the collection of swath-type data that minimizes survey time while maintaining data quality and ensuring the desired coverage. AutoSurvey is applicable to all swath-type surveying systems with fixed angular footprints and where the quality of the swath edge data can be monitored by real-time sensors.
The US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD) seeks to commercialize through patent licensing an improved method for preparing the same frozen tissue sample for both light and electron microscopy.
Efficient, fast, robust, highly accurate software tool to model electromagnetic (EM) radiators and EM-target interaction using standard CAD input
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.
