Trimodal Handheld Probe Based on Raman Spectroscopy and Confocal Imaging for Cancer Detection (DD-2008-PROBE)

Jointly developed with Vanderbilt University (link to VU website above).

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

A single handheld device for combined confocal imaging and confocal Raman spectroscopy as well as gross spatial imaging as a clinical diagnostic tool for cancer detection in humans, with a specific emphasis on the skin. 

Microbial and Fungal Detector/Monitor for Fuel Tanks and Fuel Systems (AR-2012-TRAP)

Contact: Gary Bloomer, 406-994-7483

Optics-based solution which can be designed for continuous in-tank /system monitoring or as a handheld device for periodic sampling. Lower detection limit is <100 organisms/mL, non-optimized.

System for the Non-Destructive Removal of Radioactive Material from Challenging Porous Surfaces (AR-2006-ATOM)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

LIDAR Monitoring of Rotors and Propellers for On-Board or Ground Based Applications (SJA-2004-BEES)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

Device for monitoring the tracking, balance, and integrity of helicopter and propeller blades.

In-Field LIDAR Monitoring and Manufacturing Control of Wind Turbine (SJA-2004-BEES)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

Device for monitoring the balance and integrity of wind turbine blades either in service or as a quality control step in the manufacturing process.

Aircraft Birdstrike Monitoring (SJA-2004-BEES)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

A laser-based detection system can monitor and identify birds in flight at a potentially lower cost than radar-based systems.

Locating Bees Trained for Sensing Explosives (SJA-2004-BEES)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

A laser-based detection system locates bees that have been trained to detect explosives.

Flying Insect Detection (SJA-2004-BEES)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

Laser-based detection system can monitor and discriminate flying insects.

Omnidirectional Smart Antenna with Gain and Beam-Width Equal to Directional Antennas (WRS-2008-ANTE)

Contact: Nick Zelver, 406-994-7706

Programmable antenna provides networked high-broadband omnidirectional communication with multiple moving targets.
