Emerging Technologies

The technologies listed here are mature within the technology transition process and are in the process of being validated for commercial opportunities. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more.

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC Anode Enablers - multi fuel options without a reformer

IBIS™ Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch -  Advanced pulsed power switching, a compact gallium arsenide-based switch capable of handling ultrahigh voltages (over 75,000 V) and current densities in less than a billionth of a second, with ultralow jitter.

Super High Strength AI Alloy 7042 - Our challenge was to improve the structural efficiency of launch systems by replacing the Ti-5Al-2.5Sn ELI alloy for Liquid H2 Turbopump Impellers with an aluminum-based alloy. Aluminum is about 1.6 times lighter and is less sensitive to the hydrogen environment. 

Ground Truth for NDE - Automated metallography with Robo-Met.3D to quantify Probability of Detection curves of CT as an NDE method for metallic powder bed AM processes. 

Ultra High Temperature Ceramics - Offering a combination of strength combined with toughness and thermal shock resistance at  1800-3300oC, with near zero erosion in the most the challenging environments.

CuBeRT- Copper Beryllium Replacement - Highest combination of strength and hardness for the most demanding applications



Phase II SBIR/STTR projects advance technologies developed in Phase I towards a minimal viable product demonstration. A current listing of our active programs is listed below, and please contact us for more information.

Ground Truth for NDE - Automated metallography with Robo-Met.3D to validate CT and other NDE methods (through Sep 2023).


Rapid Repair of Corroded Fastener Holes (through May 2024)

Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Scale-Up (through April 2024)

Design, Analysis, Fabrication, and Test Firing of Non-eroding Hybrid Ceramic Nozzle Throats Using Strong and Tough TaC Composites. (through Dec 2024)

Scalable Process for Novel Nanomaterials (through Jan 2024)

UHTC-Based Leading Edge Components (through Sep 2023)
