Air Force AFWERX X20.D STTR Phase I – Dual Use Technology Topic 

Foothold Labs has been awarded a US Air Force AFWERX Phase I STTR grant to conduct research and development on use of electrochemical biosensors for dual use technology applications.  The Berkland Group in the University of Kansas Bioengineering Department is the primary research partner for this project.

This unique opportunity with the US Air Force AFWERX program allows Foothold Labs to explore multiple use cases related to Department of Defense needs at the same time.  This AFWERX SBIR / STTR program is a pilot which allows the Air Force to accelerate new technologies to the warfighter by creating new solutions, closing capability gaps, and identifying potential new technology advancements.
