KEC “First Friday Fanfare” features Y-12 technologies

First Friday FanfareThe Knoxville Entrepreneur Center’s “First Friday Fanfare” is two weeks away – August 5 to be exact, but it promises to be of real interest to entrepreneurs looking for technologies.

The event, set for 4 to 6 p.m. at KEC’s Market Square location, is an opportunity for the Y-12 National Security Complex to showcase some of its technologies available for licensing. Billed as the “Y-12 Technology Road Show,” the event will spotlight inventions that were developed as part of Y-12’s mission and have been proven in the field. They include:

  • Blast resistant seat for law enforcement or military
  • Low cost chemical sensing;
  • Delayed door latching for security applications;
  • Software for emergency management;
  • Infrared for debonding paint and adhesives;
