Award List:

High Efficiency Stretchable (Highly Conformable) Photovoltaics for Expeditionary Forces

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Illinois Urbana Champ
Principal Investigator: John A. Rogers, Prof. Materials Science
Award Amount: $70,000.00
RI Contact: John A. Rogers
Abstract:
This Phase I effort will establish photovoltaic materials, device designs, and processing approaches for modules that offer high efficiency (>12%) and can be flexed, stretched, twisted, and deformed (to strains of >50%) in ways that enable conformable wrapping of complex, curvilinear shapes. This… More

High Voltage, Lightweight, Conformal, Integrated, Photovoltaic Modules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Illinois
Principal Investigator: Roozbeh Gaffari, Co-Founder, Prod. Dev. Le – (617) 234-4448
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: John Rogers
Abstract:
This Phase I effort will demonstrate a thin, conformal solar module(1 cm x 1 cm) composed of either GaAs or Si micro-cells packaged in an elastomeric film. This module will utilize unique mechanical designs, including non-planar interconnects, and thin micro-cells (<50 microns thick) and will… More

High Efficiency Stretchable (Highly Conformable) Photovoltaics for Expeditionary Forces

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Illinois
Principal Investigator: John Rogers, Lee J Flory Founder Chair – (217) 244-4979
Award Amount: $250,000.00
RI Contact: John Rogers
Abstract:
This Phase II effort will establish photovoltaics modules that offer high efficiency (>12%) and can be flexed, stretched, twisted, and deformed (to strains of>30%) in ways that enable conformable wrapping of complex, curvilinear shapes and fabrics. The application opportunities for… More

High Voltage, Lightweight, Conformal, Integrated, Photovoltaic Modules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Illinois at Urbana-Ch
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Carbeck, Chief Technology Officer – (617) 234-4448
Award Amount: $499,377.00
RI Contact: John Rogers
Abstract:
This Phase II effort will establish stretchable photovoltaic modules that achieve the key metrics of the program: modules with efficiencies>10%, that sustain elastic deformations>10% (with little or no loss in performance), and that produce output voltages>25 V. In this Phase II effort will… More

Body-worn sensors for monitoring warrior physical and mental state

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Illinois Urbana-Champ
Principal Investigator: Barry Ives, Director Advanced Program – (571) 205-1149
Award Amount: $79,968.00
RI Contact: John R. PhD
Abstract:
Wearable human state monitors must be mechanically invisible to greatest degree possible, to maximize comfort, wearability, hygiene and signal quality. These device attributes are aligned with the goal of closely coupling devices to the body for best-quality signal capture and continuous health… More
