Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-022
Budget: 11/03/10 - 11/02/12

A single, highly controllable, reliable production process is needed for the production of MgO with unique properties which is used to bind the electrolyte in activated reserve thermal batteries. In the Phase I program, EMF successfully demonstrated such a process for the preparation of Mg(OH)2, the essential precursor to the desired MgO. The Ph...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-022
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

Magnesium oxide (MgO) is in reserve thermal batteries as a binder in electrolyte pellets . MgO is normally made in large industrial quantities for commodity markets by the alkaline precipitation of magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) from natural brine solutions, followed by calcination at high temperature. Such commodity chemicals do not meet the nee...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-MT4
Budget: 09/19/06 - 09/19/07

A "right-sized" electrode production process is proposed which is based upon a re-engineered current collecting substrate for electrodes. The electrodes have an inordinate number of open pores which increase the discharge rate capability and efficiency by a significant amount. The electrode polarization of Ag2O electrodes is

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N00-119
Budget: 11/30/00 - 05/31/01

A low rate, very high energy metal-dissolved oxygen fuel cell is proposed as a power source for autonomous buoy operation. The goal is to provide continuous delivery of at least 35 watts power for at least 6 months (151.2 KWH). The energy density of the low rate system is estimated to be in excess of 500WH/Kg and 120WH/liter (including a DC-DC C...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: AF92-093
Budget: 04/02/96 - 04/02/98

The Phase II program is an extension of the Phase I program, where highly efficient silver oxide cathodes were demonstrated to deliver greater than 90% utilization at current densities to 80ma/cm2 at temperatures as low as 7C. Under Phase II, a companion non-aqueous zinc anode will be evaluated the electrode processes will be scaled up to a pre...
