Abstract This report describes the activities of a collaborative project order (CPO) agreement between the Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (AFRL/RX) and the Wright Brothers Institute (WBI), in which the Pennsylvania Nanomaterials Commercialization Center served as principal subcontractor, principal performer of all project work and principal interface with AFRL/RX. In this CPO, the PANanoCenter, working with AFRL and its core industry partners defined a Technology Roadmap. Based on that Roadmap, the PA NanoCenter funded a number of technology development projects that as a direct result of the funding could advance the technology for both the commercial and/or non-commercial stakeholders. In October 2009, with input from the AFRL an additional technology thrust was added to the Technology Roadmap which focused on nanomaterials for new energy applications. Energy is expanded to include (a) Generation; (b) Conversion; (c) Utilization and (d) Storage. The PA NanoCenter has been able to fund a total of 46 projects, 59 technologies and 19 commercial products have been developed. These are technologies that have been evaluated by the customer and assessed for the potential market.
