Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-015
Budget: 03/17/09 - 03/17/11

The U.S. Army is seeking a technical innovation to thermal batteries with significant improvements on specific energy and operation life. Thermal batteries have advantages compared with other types of reserved batteries in terms of long reserve-time, high reliability, maintenance free, high specific power, wide application temperatures, and good...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-038
Budget: 09/11/08 - 09/11/10

In US Army Phase I SBIR program, Thin Film Thermal Batteries , US Nanocorp, Inc (USN) developed thin film thermal battery components including cathodes/separators and anodes. The electric performances of thermal cells have been improved greatly with thin film components. Furthermore, with the thin film components, thermal cells/batteries are ab...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-015
Budget: 12/06/07 - 04/09/09

The U.S. Army is seeking a technical innovation to thermal batteries with significant improvements on specific energy and operation life for weapon systems. One-time-thermal activation batteries have advantages compared with other types of reserved batteries in terms of long reserve-time, high reliability, maintenance free, high specific power, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-038
Budget: 11/07/06 - 05/07/07

US Army seeks to develop thermal batteries that are lower in cost, improved in electrochemical performance, and can be made in three-dimensional shapes. Currently, thermal batteries are manufactured in low volume and not cost effective process. The major components, electrodes and electrolytes, are pressed pellets, which need extra thickness to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-001
Budget: 06/02/05 - 06/02/07

The Phase I program demonstrated potential of developing a Li-air battery by using an oxygen selective membrane (OSM) air cathode. The OSM cathode can access oxygen easily while resisting permeability and diffusion of moisture to the electrolyte and the lithium electrode. Successful Phase I efforts have provided the scientific and technologica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-001
Budget: 05/24/04 - 11/24/04

High performance lightweight energy production and storage technologies are needed to supplement or service as the primary power systems for high altitude airships in order to sustain long-term flight schedules. To address MDA~{!/~}s needs, US Nanocorp proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating a Li-air battery with a special air el...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-044
Budget: 05/24/04 - 09/28/07

The goal of the proposed project is to develop a non-destructive means of assessing the condition of primary reserve batteries without activating them. Two battery chemistries in particular will be studied, silver oxide/zinc and primary lithium molten salt batteries. AC impedance measurements over a wide range of frequencies will be made on bo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of exploiting nanostructured mixed ionic and electronic conductor (MIEC) ceramic anode material for direct electrocatalytic oxidation of hydrocarbon in solid oxide fuel cell applications. The proposed catalyst consists of an electrical conducting pha...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/26/03 - 06/30/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):Reliable operation of a portable defibrillator depends critically on the "condition" of its battery. This condition is determined by available energy and at what power level this energy can be delivered to a load. With the initiative towards widespread deployment of portable defibrillators, a low-cost device c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

72081S03-I Membranes used for hydrogen separation need to be enhanced in terms of protonic conductivity, contaminant resistance/chemical stability, mechanical properties, and compatibility with integrated gasification combined cycles (IGCC) at elevated temperature, typically 600-900 0C. This project will increase the protonic conductivity of a...
