Press Releases

Today, the national STEMx network announced funding for five states to expand quality STEM education programs and add to the national conversation on innovative education.

It’s flu season, and Battelle has won a two-year contract to continue supporting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) research on vaccines for influenza strains. The contract, known as Innovation and Expansion of Influenza Candidate Vaccine Virus Development, will help CDC add to its vaccine seed stockpile for any novel flu virus that has potential to become widespread. The goal is to produce candidate vaccine viruses that meet the rigorous quality requirements for use by vaccine manufacturers to produce influenza vaccines.

Dedrone, the market leader in counter-small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) technology, today announced the purchase of DroneDefender from Battelle. This purchase includes all assets and intellectual property associated with DroneDefender. With this acquisition, Dedrone has launched a new consultancy, Dedrone Defense, specializing in services and solutions for U.S. federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, and providing a proven, end-to-end solution that detects and classifies airspace activity, protects assets from drone threats, and defeats adversary drones.

Un programa educacional sin precedente lidereado por el Observatorio Nacional Ecológico (NEON) de la Fundación Nacional de Ciencias, está ayudando a estudiantes a centrarse en un campo especifico de la ciencia al exponerlos a un amplio espectro de experiencias dentro de las ciencias ecológicas y del medio ambiente.

A unique educational program led by the National Science Foundation’s National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is helping students home in on a specific scientific field by exposing them to a broad array of experiences in the environmental and ecological sciences.

Battelle has been awarded an extension to the cooperative agreement allowing it to continue operating the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) for the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the beginning of fiscal year 2022.

As concerns about Americans’ exposure to a certain group of chemical substances continues to grow, Battelle researchers have added another tool in their suite to help assess and understand occurrence.

Adam Kimura, Battelle’s Senior Cyber Scientist and Design Verification Lead for the Trusted and Assured Microelectronics program, has been selected to join the organizing committee of the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust (HOST).

Battelle is helping the Columbus community succeed. The company is donating 60 IT devices to Catholic Social Services, providing digital access to those who need it most. The devices will be used in a variety of programs, including education, job readiness, emergency assistance, English-Second Language (ESL) classes, and client electronic healthcare access.

As the nation’s ecologists gather in Kentucky next week, a group from the Battelle-managed NEON program are energized now that the network has been built and is generating data that are shared with the global ecology community.

Battelle employees and invited government and academic officials will have a unique opportunity to tour the research aircraft that crisscrosses the country collecting data for the National Science Foundation’s National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) program, managed by Battelle.

Battelle researchers have embarked on a project for the United States Department of Defense’s (DoD) environmental research programs to examine commercial, off-the-shelf, fluorine-free aqueous film forming foams to determine whether they meet military specifications for fire suppression. The research is funded by the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), under their initiatives in per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) research.

Now that the National Ecological Observatory Network is operational, the continental-sized network funded by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle can fulfill its mission: Provide free, high-quality, standardized ecological data for scientists around the world to use for important research projects.

LIFT – Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, a Detroit-based national manufacturing innovation institute and member of Manufacturing USA, and Battelle, the world’s largest independent nonprofit research and development organization, announced the winning schools of the 2018-2019 MakerMinded competition. This competition expands students’ and schools’ access to world-class advanced manufacturing and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning experiences through an online platform.

Battelle has won an Associated Contractor Agreement for a new Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Epigenetic Characterization and Observation (ECHO) program. The aim is to build a field-deployable platform technology that quickly reads someone’s epigenome and identifies signatures that indicate whether that person has ever—in his or her lifetime—been exposed to materials that could be associated with weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

Battelle representatives are participating this week in the TERENO NEON Carbon Workshop 2019 in Düren, Germany, emphasizing the organization’s commitment to environmental research infrastructure (RI), data sharing and interoperability, worldwide research collaboration and building the next generation of researchers.

Battelle is focused on the human health and environmental impacts of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and has invented a new digital tool to determine where these substances are going once they have been introduced into groundwater.

Battelle is combining years of brain-computer interface (BCI) projects, such as NeuroLife®, with its expertise in machine learning and artificial intelligence under a new award from the federal government’s forward-thinking government agency, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The award is part of DARPA’s Artificial Intelligence Exploration program called Intelligent Neural Interfaces.

Battelle will play a key role for NASA by running a nationwide contest giving K-12 students in United States schools a chance to name the Mars 2020 Rover.

Battelle has been announced as one of eight finalists in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate Opioid Detection Challenge.
