Bio-Inspired Dry Fibrillar Adhesives for Enhanced Sealing of Respiratory Protective Masks

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$70,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / CBD
Principal Investigator:
Michael Murphy, Research Engineer
Abstract:
NanoGriptech LLC proposes to develop repeatable skin adhesives using technology inspired by the feet of geckos and insects. These adhesives will be integrated into full facemask respirators to reduce or replace head harness straps, which are currently used to hold the facemasks in place. Expected… More

Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a pilot-scale production system and process to enable the large-scale fabrication of continuous arrays of elastomeric micro/nano-scale fibers with complex geometry. Inspired by hairs that occur naturally on gecko feet,… More

Gecko Inspired Adhesives for Enhanced Dexterity of Robotic Manipulation Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$125,000.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Paul Glass, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Valuable time is spent by astronauts performing simple, mundane, or ergonomically taxing tasks. Therefore, one center of focus for NASA is to have robots increasingly perform these tasks to give the crew more time flexibility. Robots are also employed with tasks that are too dangerous for humans or… More

Microfiber-Based Closures with Hermetic Sealing for Chem Bio Protective Garments

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Paul Glass, Lead Engineer – (412) 224-2136
Abstract:
Hook and loop closures in Army uniforms have been identified as the critical sources of leaks in protective clothing/equipment, which limits the overall protective capability of the ensemble. New closure systems capable of providing both the shear and peel strengths demonstrated by hook and loop… More
