Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP05
Budget: 09/14/04 - 09/14/06

This project develops, optimizes and demonstrates components and subsystems found feasible in the Phase-I effort of this project. EDTEK has identified the components and subsystems that will yield the most improvements in performance, reliability, and cost of thermophotovoltaic (TPV) power systems. The components and subsystems identified are 1...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-103
Budget: 03/17/03 - 03/17/05

The overall objective of this Phase II SBIR project is to develop and demonstrate a 1 kW man-portable multi-fueled thermophotovoltaic (TPV) power system. The TPV technology is based on a grey body (silicon carbide) emitter, resonant mesh infrared bandpass filters, and GaSb photovoltaic cells. These key components have been developed on previou...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP05
Budget: 01/27/03 - 07/27/04

A program is proposed which will inhance the eficiency of key thermo-photovoltaic (TPV) components and significantly lower their cost. A new process for fabricating resonant mesh filters will simplify and lower the cost of their manufacture. The feasibility of a new tandem filter will be explored. If successful, this tandem filter would incre...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-103
Budget: 02/07/02 - 12/31/02

EDTEK proposes a program to develop and validate a conceptual design for a prototype, man-portable, 1 kW multi-fuel thermophotovoltaic (TPV) generator suitable for battlefield use. This program addresses both the problems of weight reduction to allow the generator to be man-portable and low thermal and RFI/EFI signatures reducing the possibilit...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

THE CONVERSION OF INFRARED (IR) ENERGY BY MEANS OF PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS, KNOWN AS THERMOPHOTOVOLTAICS (TPV), WAS SUGGESTED IN THE EARLY 1970S AND HAS BEEN RESEARCHED BY MANY WORKERS SINCE THEN. THE RECENT DEVELOPMENTS OF LOW-BANDGAP PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS AND IR BANDPASS FILTERS HAVE FINALLY MADE THE PROMISE OF HIGH EFFICIENCY THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC ENER...
