  6. Energy Harvesting Wireless Strain Networks

    Amount: $124,968.00

    Prime Research LC (PPLC) and Virginia Tech (VT) propose to develop an energy harvesting wireless strain node technology that utilizes single-crystal piezoelectric fiber-based energy harvesting, highly ...

    STTR Phase I 2012 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. Bulk metallic glass for low noise fluxgate

    Amount: $124,993.00

    The team of Prime Photonics, Virginia Tech, and Utron Kinetics propose to demonstrate a method for fabrication of a bulk, amorphous, cobalt-rich material that demonstrates low-noise magnetic propertie ...

    SBIR Phase I 2012 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. HCF and Mistuning Detection

    Amount: $149,973.00

    During the course of operation the blades of a blisk are altered by erosion, fatigue, and FOD. In the case of more significant blade damage the blade may need to be blended to restore its strength. Th ...
