HAMPTON-One Peninsula business is among a list of 34 small technology-focused businesses that will receive a grant in the inaugural round of the Commonwealth Commercialization Fund (CCF) Awards.

Philip Ma with Psionic LLC in Hampton will receive $100,000 toward research in space and satellites, specifically the Psionic Navigation Doppler Lidar.

Governor Ralph Northam announced on July 12 that the small business recipients will be awarded a combined total of $3.4 million in grants to commercialize research in a variety of industries including agricultural and environmental technologies, autonomous systems, clean energy, cybersecurity, data analytics, life sciences, and space and satellites.

“Facilitating research breakthroughs and getting new technologies out of the lab and into the hands of consumers is key to driving economic growth and creating jobs in the Commonwealth,” the governor said.


The Virginia Innovation Partnership Authority helped develop the CCF.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
