Lynntech is funded by the US military to develop self-regenerating dust masks for use in punishing military operational environments.

Operations in high dust environments carry significant risk of cardiovascular and pulmonary distress for our soldiers. Existing commercially available dust masks are unsuitable for soldier protection due to very high resistance to breathing and tendency to rapidly clog. Lynntech is currently developing a rugged, novel particulate dust mask suitable for extended wear that significantly reduces the amount of dust respired in operational environments with high particulate matter levels, such as in Southwest Asia. This dust mask incorporates a highly innovative self-cleaning mechanism which requires no external power. This enables the mask to continuously self-clean and actively resist clogging, which maintains low breathing resistance during very high airflows to protect the soldier while decreasing respiratory burden during aerobic activity.

Lynntech is funded by the National Cancer Institute to develop strategies to overcome primary and secondary resistance to current breast cancer therapies.

There is an urgent need for new therapeutic approaches to counter the emergence of primary and secondary resistance to therapies that are used for treating patients with HER2+ breast cancer. With support from NCI, Lynntech is developing a novel class of HER3 antagonists that potentiate anti-tumor effects of current HER2-directed therapies via blocking ligand-dependent and ligand-independent HER3 heterodimerization. By inhibiting HER3 activity, which is one of the major modulators of resistance to HER2-directed therapies, Lynntech’s therapeutic can potentially reduce treatment failures, and improve clinical outcome of patients with HER2+ breast cancerContact Lynntech about this topic…

Lynntech is funded by DARPA to develop a novel desalination technology that is significantly more efficient than large scale reverse osmosis.

Lynntech has developed a novel desalination technology that is >50% more efficient than large scale reverse osmosis and maintains this high energy efficiency even at small scale production rates.  Lynntech is currently developing a prototype desalination module designed to produce 5 liters per hour of potable water from seawater and weighs 10 lbs and has a footprint of ~0.3 cubic feet.  The first target market for this technology is for outdoor recreation and marine survival applications with desalination rates in the range of 1-5 liters per hour.  The technology is also highly scalable with potential use for larger systems for emergency response, military applications, and domestic water production. Contact Lynntech about this topic…

Lynntech is funded by the U.S. Air Force to develop a hybrid fuel cell power system designed for use in current and future directed energy weapon systems.

Lynntech has developed a hybrid fuel cell power system to meet the required power and energy delivery for current and future directed energy weapon systems.  This system is comprised of a high energy density fuel cell and high power delivery lithium polymer battery.  The battery will provide the high power pulse while the fuel cell serves to recharge the battery bank through constant power operation.  This approach is designed to maximize the total mission energy and extend operational capabilities of airborne advanced weapons systems through a high power, high energy, low mass system. Contact Lynntech about this topic…

“High altitude flight presents many risks to pilots including hypoxia which severely affects the pilot’s cognitive function. Early recognition of hypoxic conditions is paramount to implementing corrective action and this can only be achieved through extensive hypoxia training. Advanced mobile training devices that are not bulky, have reduced logistical burdens and prevent air starvation of the trainees via pressure-on-demand delivery…”

MedPump Tech brief

“To best serve the warfighter, medical practitioners in a hostile area need tools designed from the ground up to meet extraordinary requirements. In theater, medics need hardware ready to operate under challenging environmental conditions, tailored for an operational setting, where low weight and power requirements are crucial to mission success. The CONOPS for Expeditionary Medical Support (EMEDS) is based on…”
