Many of TransTech’s research and development projects were co-sponsored by TransTech and other government or private industry collaborators. Our partners in many of our successful projects include the following.
  • Department of Homeland Security
  • Dimon/Alliance One International
  • Georgia Department of Transportation
  • Brooklyn Union Gas/KeySpan
  • National Cooperative Highway Research Program
  • National Science Foundation
  • New York State Department of Transportation
  • New York State Energy Research and Development Authority
  • New York Gas Group
  • Transportation Research Board
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Command
As with all of our research, TransTech has enjoyed mutually rewarding partnerships with many State and Federal agencies as well as private sector companies. Our current projects are focused on three primary areas.

First, we are in development of a combined asphalt and soil gauge. This allows our commercial customers and contractors to reduce the number of instruments they need to stock and carry for multiple job sites. This instrument allows for more competitive bids and lower costs for roads, bridges, and buildings.

Second, we are developing measurement devices for at-line or online manufacturing applications. Most producers of concrete and asphalt have developed time-temperature profiles for production of their materials that are guaranteed to meet performance specifications, but are hardly optimized for efficiencies. A new measurement tool enables this improvement that will result in significant production cost savings while simultaneously improving quality.

Third, we are developing a biomedical application of the impedance spectroscopy and tomography. This is used for monitoring health of an individual, such as a soldier or athlete, and for disease monitoring such as diabetes. In diabetes monitoring and treatment, there is no truly non-invasive way to measure glucose. There are significant costs and patient difficulties that are alleviated with a continuous, ex-vivo, wearable device.
