Leveraging our wide network of partners, we have curated numerous enabling technologies available for licensing and commercialisation across different industries and domains. Enterprises interested in these technology offers and collaborating with partners of complementary technological capabilities can reach out for co-innovation opportunities.

Sapphire Thin Film Technology
The technology offers functional coating using a submicron thin film that is ultra-hard, non-fragile and anti-scratch for use as protective coating on watches and electronic devices including smartphones and tablets. Compared with the existing less durable and easily scratched cover glass on mobile devices, this coating can be applied to screens providing excellent scratch protection. Its manufacturing cost is approximately half that of sapphire covered glass. The new material invented is a layer of nano-materials that has ultra-hard and anti-scratch properties and can be deposited onto a transparent substrate, ideal for use on touch screen devices. Its hardness is proven to be comparable to the hardness of single crystal sapphire, which is hard but fragile. The fabricated layer can be deposited onto various types of substrate including quartz, fused silica and silicon. The fabrication process can be completed using standard industrial deposition processes; therefore production can be scaled-up with minimal development time and production cost.
Tri-State Electrochromic Device - Modulation between Transparent, Color and Mirror
Our technology features a three state optical modulation between transparent, color and mirror appearance of a given surface, primarily on glass substrates. The switching between the three states can be triggered by a small voltage application. The versatile electrochromic device allows user to enjoy outdoor view in transparent state, blocking of sunlight in colored state and reflective finish in mirror state. It can offer additional light management capability compared to the solid state electrochromics. This technology is promising for the optical modulation of building façade and fenestration, in reducing energy consumption for in-door air conditioning, creating interactive visual displays on glass or façade decoration for interior designers to create space and light interaction.
Non-intrusive Energy Disaggregation, Analysis and Equipment Condition Monitoring System
The technology described herein is related to the development of system which monitors the energy consumption of multiple equipment non-intrusively. The system also consists of a data analytics module that uses machine learning algorithm to analyse energy data and enable stakeholders (e.g. building owners, facility managers, home owners) to gain insights into the condition of their equipment. This “Smart” monitoring system offers many potential benefits and features to users, and is a necessary tool for every smart infrastructure that seeks to leverage on technology to simplify system operations and automate laborious duties. The software interacts with Building Management Systems (BMS) by analysing energy data and provides feedback to the BMS to trigger certain events or aggregate system information to assist operators with informed decision-making. Low-cost, non-intrusive hardware, ease of installation and scale-up removes the major hurdles in financial and technical consideration. The ingenious cost-effective approach of using basic energy data to detect and predict equipment behaviours is unique and innovative. The technology provider is seeking for potential collaborators to apply this technology in various applications.
Silica Fibrous Material for Sorption, Separation, Catalytic and Battery Applications
Silica (SiO2) fibrous material is a special functional material with unique properties represented by amorphous fibre structure. These silica fibres can adsorb significantly more water than commercially available silica gel of the same mesoporous character. This feature is especially apparent in the range of medium relative humidity (30-70% RH), which is industrially the most important range for adsorption (in electronics, food, chemical industries, and numerous others). Owing to its porosity, the fibrous sorbent can be desorbed for its next use at significantly lower temperature (at least 20°C lower), which has a positive effect on the cost figure of the process. High specific surface area and mesoporosity are the main advantages, and make the material especially suitable for sorption and catalytic applications. The material can also be used as an adsorbent, catalytic carrier, battery electrolyte, etc.
Environmental Friendly Oxidation Process for Food and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
This technology describes a green and environmental-friendly oxidation process which can be used for bleaching liquids and oils by using low level of hydrogen peroxide. Conventionally, bleaching is conducted at elevated temperature with concentrated hydrogen peroxide or bleach. In this green process, the required amount of hydrogen peroxide is greatly reduced and the process can be conducted under ambient conditions. Moreover, the bleaching process is fully compatible with food and pharmaceutical products as no toxic materials are used in the process. The only end products are oxygen and water. 
ECG Sensing Solution for Vital Signs Monitoring
This technology provides an electrocardiography (ECG) monitoring solution to accurately measure health performance metrics via electrode-based sensors, chipset and related software analytics. With a sensor chip measuring vital signs of the wearer, the technology utilises intelligent algorithms capable of analysing signals that indicate health performance metrics, such as heart rate variability and stress levels. Technology on offer includes sensors, chipsets, device and analytics. The solution is suitable for wrist-worn wearables, and clothing. Recorded data can be displayed on mobile, web applications and cloud. In comparison with current health tracking devices on the market, this technology provides reference design, SDK and ready to deploy algorithms for developers.
TV White Space Super Wi-Fi
Demand for wireless communication is ever-increasing. However, the frequency spectrum is a scarce resource that cannot be created. This has resulted in an issue commonly known as "spectrum crunch" -- a phenomenon where demand for spectrum outpaced supply that resulted in congestion and drop in wireless communication quality.Ironically, measurements done at many places globally concluded that spectrum utilisation was only around 5-15%. This calls for a need to use next-generation technologies to utilise spectrum in an innovative manner in order to ensure sustainability. TV White Space (TVWS) is the first technology that uses spectrum dynamically. It is able to find pockets of unused spectrum dynamically and utilise them for communication. Thus, significantly improve spectrum utilisation. TVWS is also known as Super Wi-Fi as it covers much larger range than Wi-Fi. TVWS can also be touted as the next "sharing economy" in the spectrum. Its concept is similar to Uber or Airbnb where resources (in this case spectrum) are shared whenever or wherever they are not utilised.
Pulse Diagnostic for Traditional Medicine
Pulse palpation is the main diagnostic method used in Indian, Tibetan and Traditional Chinese medicine. However, mastering pulse diagnosis requires many years of experience. The tech-partner has developed a pulse diagnostic technology for use in device to perform pulse analysis.This technology uses a combination of hardware and software system for performing pulse analysis, and creating an individual rehabilitation program based on naturopathy. It is intended to be used by professionals of traditional medicine and their patient. 
Anti-Nematodes Bioproduct from Fungi Strain
Plant parasitic nematodes are a serious issue in agriculture as it affects productivity and yield of crops. This results in crop loss worth millions of dollars annually. Agrochemical is used heavily to control plant disease. However, the use of these expensive and toxic chemical can lead to contamination and potentially increase the resistance of pest. Biopesticides are biological or biologically-derived agents, usually applied in a similar manner as a chemical pesticide, but are generally more environmentally friendly.This technology uses a fungus strain (Duddingtonia flagrans) which is effective in a natural condition and has proved its high nematophagous activity. It is effective and safe to be used in agriculture for improving soil fertility and control of parasitic nematodes of plants. The tech partner has developed a quick and safe method of production using the fungi strain to obtain the anti-nematodes bioproduct.
