TechConnect 2018 Defense Innovation Awardees Announced!

Hundreds of innovators to showcase technologies to military and corporate leadership at the Defense TechConnect Summit and Expo, taking place October 23-25 in Tampa.

Innovation Spotlight: Improved Natural Sorbents for Toxic Substance Remediation

Modification of surface chemistries of natural sorbents improves performance and environmental viability for use in natural disasters.

Innovation Spotlight: Bio-inspired catalyst for electrolytic hydrogen production

We have developed new electrode materials for electrolytic hydrogen generation that are inspired by the water splitting complex of photosynthetic organisms. Our catalysts are made from cheap and abundant metals (manganese and calcium) and are substantially more efficient than the chemical standard catalysts in neutral pH.

Innovation Spotlight: Vital signs detection while in motion using doppler radar

This invention presents a new Doppler radar system, which is capable of extracting human vital signs in the presence of radar platform movement.

Innovation Spotlight: Bioprinting of Hybrid Tissue Engineering Constructs

Researchers in Dr. Yunzhi Peter Yang’s lab have developed a 3D printing technology that can be used to form hybrid multi-material constructs incorporating a wide spectrum of materials (rigid and soft) and bioagents (such as cells and growth factors) with controlled spatial distribution across the hybrid structure.

Innovation Spotlight: Electric Current and Magnetic Field Imaging System

This technology is a non-contact device that can image electric current and three dimensional magnetic field in real time.
