ElectraWatch, Inc. was founded in August of 2007 as a Delaware corporation to commercialize corrosion and coating health monitoring technologies originally developed by Virginia Technologies, Inc. (VTI). These technologies include a Coating Health Monitor (CHM) that uses electrochemical impedance spectroscopy to assess the heath of a coating, an Embedded Corrosion Instrument (ECI) that monitors the corrosion of steel rebar in reinforced concrete, and a hand-held probe for the U.S. Navy to quantify the Degree of Sensitization (DoS) in the 5XXX series Aluminum alloys used in ship superstructures. ElectraWatch is well funded, having secured funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the form of a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant. ElectraWatch has also received Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and was recently awarded a $750k contract to develop a prototype of the DoS Probe. ElectraWatch has a corporate headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia and has a branch office in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.
