NLA Diagnostics is currently developing the NLA ReconTM through a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR). As described by SBIR.gov: “The mission of the STTR program is to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of Federal research funds in critical American priorities to build a strong national economy. The programs’ goals are to:
- Stimulate technological innovation.
- Foster technology transfer through cooperative R&D between small businesses and research institutions.
- Increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from federal R&D.”
The NLA ReconTM is a concrete characterization device which is portable and easy to use. By pressing the unit against a concrete structure, it can quickly determine attributes including density, thickness, and rebar location.
