NASA technology forms the basis for a new nanotechnology company
Date:9/4/2007

panies that have licensed the process include Idaho Space Materials in Boise and E-City NanoTechnologies in the metro Baltimore area.

With a license agreement in place, Nanotailor has built and tested a prototype based on NASA Goddards process, and is now working on commercialization efforts with a plan to go to market by the end of 2007.

Device integrators and nanotechnology-based device companies will likely be among Nanotailors first customers, though the company hopes to cater to a wide variety of industries and research organizations. "All industries currently using multi-walled tubes will be able to benefit from this technology," notes Nanotailor chief technology officer Reginald Parker. "Were lowering the cost per gram while greatly improving the integrity of the nanotubes. A better product at a lower price will help us bring higher quality nanotechnology to biomaterials, advanced materials, space exploration, highway and building construction the list goes on and on."

This technology transfer success story was made possible by the efforts of NASAs Innovative Partnerships Program (IPP), which has a two-part focus: (1) forming partnerships between NASA and industry, academia, or other government agencies to support the space program and (2) transferring NASA technology to new applications.

"NASA is committed to working with small businesses so they may be successful. Its good for technology, for NASA, and for the U.S. economy," said Nona Minnifield Cheeks, Chief of the IPP Office at NASA Goddard.
