The Need
• Elite performers require deeper knowledge
about their bodies … in real-time
• If elite performers take action based on the
real-time knowledge they receive, they will be
able to perform better and longer
• Elite performers are willing to pay for this kind
of actionable knowledge
9
The Technologies
• Bio-Marker Sensor technology from AFRL
• Micro-Fluidic technology from AFRL and The
University of Cincinnati (UC)
• Flexible electronics technology from Averatek
• Mobile app and cloud analytics technology
from Emitti
• Manufacturing technology from BioOhio
members in the Dayton, Ohio Region
10
The Genesis
• Midwest Federal Laboratory Consortium
Meeting held at Wright Brothers Institute in
August 2012.
11
The Process (part 1)
• WBI becomes aware of AFRL Bio-Marker research during
2012 Midwest FLC meeting
• WBI joins with SRI International in 2013 to stand up the
Global Aerospace Innovation Center (GAIC) in Dayton,
Ohio
• AFRL and UC Co-Develop wearable sensor technology
• AFRL assigns technology (with royalty provisions back to
AFRL) to UC and UC files patent applications
• UC establishes Eccrine Systems as the entity to advance
the technology through Exclusive Channel Collaborations
12
The Process (part 2)
• GAIC verifies and quantifies market needs through
multiple “league of users” interactions
• GAIC stands up Joint Venture (JV) company called
CoreSyte to go after Elite Performers markets
• GAIC negotiates license agreement with Eccrine
Systems
• CoreSyte secures Venture Capital (VC) funding
commitment
• CoreSyte follows GAIC development commercialization
process
• CoreSyte plans to negotiate CRADA relationship with
711th HPW at AFRL
