13 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Los Alamos National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 70 A-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Using a laser/particle pulse to ignite a pre-compressed ICF target, or Fast Ignition (FI), has gained its popularity in the recent decade since it not only reduce the required laser driven energy to ignite the ICF fuel, but also relax the symmetry requirements for compression (reducing instabilities), and significantly increase the fusion energy...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB032-048
Budget: 07/20/05 - 10/10/07

The objective of this Phase II project is to demonstrate the engineering feasibility of a high power, unitized, regenerative fuel cell that uses sodium borohydride (NaBH4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) directly at the fuel cell (FC) electrodes. Such a Regenerative Fuel Cell (RFC) is ideally suited for the demanding Unconventional Space Power requ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

75355-Near term Heavy Ion Fusion (HIF) experiments require the development of a set of subroutines that are suitable for the straightforward insertion into existing simulation codes. This project will develop a subroutine for one such code, LSP, which will provide lookup of charge exchange and ion stripping, especially multi-electron stripping ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB032-048
Budget: 12/29/03 - 08/23/04

The objective of this research is to study the feasibility of a unique high energy-density space power system based on a direct hydrogen peroxide fuel cell. Such a power system has an energy density 10 times higher than that available from the most advanced battery systems today and meets the requirements for Unconventional Space Power set forth...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

65266 Attractive fusion energy sources will require the use of new concepts and advanced materials able to withstand the high levels of surface heat flux and neutron wall loads for in-vessel components. The application of free surface flowing liquids as plasma-facing components in future fusion energy systems will meet this need. This projec...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 02-2
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

The proposed research will study and develop an efficient method for directed energy extraction from an Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC) fusion plant, enabling efficient space propulsion. The concept proposed would collect and collimate the high-energy fusion ions from the IEC using a unique system of magnetic fields. This beam of high-e...
