The Technology Showcase is an opportunity for members of the public to learn about patented NASA technology and envision how their business might benefit from our world renowned research. Licensing a NASA technology can help your business grow and advance the commercialization of exciting new technologies. Join us for this quarterly event to learn more.
September 22nd – 2pm to 3pm
We will highlight 3 technologies applicable to the off shore wind industry. Subject matter experts, inventors and commercialization specialists will be on-hand to answer questions and engage in discussions surrounding commercialization opportunities.
Technologies will include:
- Surface Contamination Mitigation – NASA Langley offers an array of patented methodologies that ensure a smooth clean surface for wind turbines which could enhance longevity of equipment life expectancy and operational efficiencies.
- Wind-Event Warning System – This NASA Langley invention uses a LIDAR system which can spot potentially damaging wind activities not spotted by traditional weather monitoring. These wind events can be a damaging surprise, but advanced warning would permit feathering the blades before any damage can be done.
- Defect Detection System for Composites – NASA Langley has developed a system to monitor composites during cure that ensures a composite turbine blade meets standards without requiring a separate evaluation step in the process, saving a blade manufacturer time between initiation and installation, and space for quality evaluations.
