  3. CCAT Program Overview Chuck Mirabile 

  4. What Is CCAT • A collaborative partnership of academic, industry, and government organizations funded by Congressional appropriations through the Office of Naval Research to……. • Discover and accelerate the commercialization of new technologies that……. • Provide innovative solutions for military and homeland security requirements for……. • A secure and safer America

  5. Our Funding History • CCAT first funded in 2000 by DARPA to conduct a proof of concept pilot demonstration with technologies designated by DARPA • First Congressional funding of $5.2M awarded in FY2001 established CCAT San Diego and funded the first two years of program activity. • FY02 funding of $4.4M supported the expansion of the program into CSUSB and continuation of the program through December 2003. • FY03 funding of $6.0M and FY04 funding of $7.3M have been awarded to the CCAT program with FY05 funding of $5.7M pending. • CCAT has a request for FY06 funding. Note: The above amounts are net of funds retained by DOD, ONR and SSC SD Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology

  6. Why CCAT • Government spends billions on developing new technologies that never make it to the marketplace – either government or commercial • Merely funding new technology development is not enough; e.g. SBIR Phase I and II have limited success and do not fund commercialization • There is no government initiative or program that bridges the gap between technology development and commercialization • Events like 9/11, the War on Terrorism, and military operations in forward areas such as Afghanistan and Iraq demand technology solutions NOW! • The missing link has been to tie government expenditures for technology development to a process that reduces risk and facilitates the rapid transfer of advances into the marketplace Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology

  8. How We Do It • Collaborate with Department of Defense and Homeland Security agencies to determine critical technology needs and requirements • Translate these needs into topics featured in CCAT sponsored national solicitations inviting companies, universities, and government labs to submit proposals • Quickly evaluate proposals using vast network of independent 3rd party experts from business, technology, VC/Angel investment communities • Award the most promising technologies with funds for technology and/or product development and evaluation • Provide entrepreneurial services to get the product into the marketplace as quickly and efficiently as possible Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology

  16. Success Stories Real-time Image Enhancement How it Works Pixon's technology more than doubles the resolution of real-time video by adaptively suppressing noise, correcting for blur, and adjusting the dynamic range for the human eye. Highlights / Impact Jan 2002, CCAT market study predicts UAV and missile defense markets as most attractive and proposed a focus on the SBIR program funding for development. Spring 2002, two SBIR/STTR Phase I contracts awarded with the U.S. Army and both receive Phase II contracts in 2003. July 2002, Pixon receives $430K from Aeromet for image post-processing for the Missile Defense Agency’s AIRS program. Sep 2002, Pixon receives $400K for image processing in a Canadian nuclear counterterrorism project. Feb 2003, CCAT awards development funds for next generation system. May 2003, Pixon receives SBIR Phase I contract with the U.S. Army to build a PixonVision ASIC for guided munitions. Aug 2004, The U.S. Navy conducts successful test of the PixonVision hardware. Initial contracts expected to be in the range of $450K$1.35M for Scan Eagle. The U.S. Army conducts testing with AAI for application to the Shadow. Initial purchase expected to be 100 units.

  17. Success Stories Intecon: Binary Ionization Technology How it Works Electro-mechanically activated hydrogen peroxide radicals form a non-toxic mist which decontaminates harmful organisms suspended in air or attached to surfaces. Highlights / Impact Dec 2001, CCAT awards a market analysis and $75K grant to develop Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) for biological agent decontamination. Dec 2002, Intecon receives $5M investment from Titan Corporation as part of joint venture to commercialize products. Early 2003, Intecon receives a $725K contract from DARPA to develop a decontamination product for HVAC ducts to protect against chem/bio agents and mold. Testing in Nevada test facility planned. July 2004, Intecon receives orders for both handheld and glove decontamination products. Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology

  18. Success Stories Rapid Intelligent DC-DC Battery Charger How it Works Charger is based on intelligent software algorithm that queries the target battery on a pulse by pulse basis regarding parameters affecting the charge (chemical composition (NiCD, NiMH, lead-acid, etc), its current state of charge, temperature, etc. Highlights / Impact Company signed $1.5M contract with the ONR to add Li Ion battery charging and diagnostic capabilities to their previously developed intelligent battery charging technology. Diagnostics will include automatic capacity determination for rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries, end-of-life prediction for a wide range of battery types, a battery-to-battery conditioner / charger for Special Ops forces, and charging of lithium batteries. Will have significant impact on meeting power consumption demands of the warfighter. Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology

  19. In Summary: A Technology Transformation Process • Engineered from the ground up by a team of Southern California based technology entrepreneurs, university marketing executives, and university and government technology transfer experts. • Takes traditional concept of technology transfer and expands into a fully integrated market driven approach that combines the capabilities of industry, academia, and government. • Places extreme attention on the last mile of the commercialization process – usually ignored by traditional tech transfer programs – the gap between product development and introduction to the market place. • CCAT is a proven model that reduces risk to government by focusing on market driven solutions and accelerates technology transition from the laboratory to the customer within 12 to 18 months.
