Nano Engineered Applications, Inc.TM (NEA) is an ieCrowdTM Company established to commercialize patented and patent-pending sensor technologies based on nanomaterials that can detect airborne gases at the parts-per-billion (ppb) level. NEA’s technologies, if commercialized, could provide a product platform encompassing multiple consumer, commercial, industrial and security-related products with a variety of applications, including air quality monitoring, explosives detection, security-related uses, industrial plant toxic gas detection, gaseous chemical warfare agent detection, food and agricultural safety uses, and other applications.
NEA licenses the underlying technology, developed at University of California, Riverside, under a license from the Board of Regents of the University of California. Funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Center for Nanoscience Innovation for Defense (CNID), Defense MicroElectronics Activity (DMEA) and other sources was used for research relating to this technology prior to NEA obtaining the license.
The current portfolio consists of two granted patents and four pending applications.
