What problems or opportunities could a better, custom-designed material address? Reduce capital or O&M costs, or EHS impact? Reduce size, weight, or inspection intervals? Improve product performance/output? Would you like to rapidly insert new materials, and procure them through competitive sourcing?
We thank our clients at numerous governmental agencies for the opportunity to serve them, by designing and developing new materials and technologies that can yield benefits such as:
- Reduce the capital costs, O&M costs and/or EHS impact of equipment and operations, or improve performance. Insert engineered materials into service and platforms that were custom-designed in order to reduce capital/O&M costs or EHS impact, or to improve performance and durability.
- Get real material innovation results, real fast. As a leading recipient of SBIR/STTR awards, we’re well-versed in demonstrating real material design innovations in short periods such as 6-9 month-long SBIR/STTR Phase I programs. And we’re focused on rapidly prototyping, scaling-up, qualifying, licensing and inserting new material solutions into real-world service.
- Leverage proven, in-place resources to yield rapid commercialization. Our business model and proven commercialization track record leverages existing suppliers, producers and processors to yield rapid speed-to-market. We help our licensees successfully commercialize our material inventions, since their success builds our success.
- Procure materials competitively. For government-sponsored material design work, we strive to license our IP to multiple producers/processors in order to create a robust marketplace, so that government buyers or subcontractors can ultimately procure new materials from at least two competing vendors.
- Strengthen key industries and increase economic output. We focus on designing, inventing and introducing superior, patent-protected materials that form the foundation of valuable materials for current and next-generation products. These patent-protected advancements can provide sustainable competitive and technical advantages to critical industries, organizations and employers.
- Reduce project risks and costs. Our stage-gate design and development process steps use clearly-defined goals, rigorous concept generation, comprehensive modeling and design, prototyping, production scale-up demonstration, and material insertion in order to maximize your agency’s return on investment of time and expense, while minimizing development risk
- Maximize the outcome from available resources. Rest comfortably that you’ve got great folks working on your need/opportunity and applying world-class, physics-based computational design and development tools. Our bottom-line, results-oriented focus and productivity is demonstrated in our track record of success and the fact that we seldom design a new material without receiving on-going guidance from a leading end-user or OEM. Our recognition for superior service to the public sector includes a proven track record of project success and awards.
- See the future better. Gain deeper insights into next-generation materials and improved processes. Benefit from the insights of our team, our tools, and our many non-confidential material design and technology programs. Leverage our physics-based, design-oriented, and computationally-derived understanding of materials and material processes.
- Enjoy participating in the design or application of a well-engineered material or material process solution that has significant impact. Enjoy working with some of the world’s foremost material design engineers to apply physics-based, computationally-enabled science and uncover exciting new material solutions that address your need or opportunity, while advancing global technology or improving environmental protection.
- Minimize contracting problems. We’re very experienced in government contracting, and are regularly reviewed, audited and approved by governmental agencies such as DCAA and DCMA. We’re experienced in working with many different contract vehicles such as SBIR/STTR contracts, cooperative agreements, grants, other transaction agreements, procurement contracts, etc.
