Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-102
Budget: 10/09/05 - 04/09/06

Thermal batteries are often the battery of choice when very long shelf life is needed, and accessibility to the battery is limited. Improvements are sought for achieving improved electrochemical performance, lower cost, and building batteries in conformal shapes. Unfortunately, present manufacturing processes make it difficult to meet these goa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-1
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

There is significant need for arrays of miniature sensors that are completely wireless. Ideally these sensors would be built as an integrated device, including sensing elements, computation/signal conditioning, communication, and an on-board power supply. However, they have not been developed due to the difficulty with integrating sensing ele-me...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-001
Budget: 11/07/03 - 11/07/05

New generations of smart munitions are more critically dependent on electrical power. Past power supply concepts are inadequate due to increasingly difficult requirements. A hybrid power supply combines energy generation with storage. It exhibits the advantages of both component technologies. The purpose of this work is to develop a reconfigur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-001
Budget: 01/16/03 - 07/15/03

The US Army needs hybrid power supplies to allow autonomous operation of electronic devices, that can extract energy from its environment in a variety of forms, store it temporarily , and then release it as needed. The power supply must have longevity, operate in a wide temperature range, and withstand high shear rates and pressure. It also mu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 03-1
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

There is an increased need for sensors to monitor environmental conditions, that are not dependent on outside power. Remote sensors are used for this purpose, but they either require wiring to a power source or periodic maintenance to replace batteries. The difficulties with each approach severely limit the ability to obtain reliable information...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00T001
Budget: 07/14/00 - 01/14/01

Among the critical needs in advanced lithium batteries, is a viable polymer electrolyte. The ideal polymer will have high ionic conductivity, chemical stability, and low cost. Proposed herein is membrane material, which meets these requirements, and has a lithium ion transfer number of one. Analogous to Nafion and comparable materials, it exh...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 00-1
Budget: 01/01/00 - 12/31/00

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-003
Budget: 08/20/99 - 02/19/00

The power supply has been the biggest obstacle to inexpensive, functional, autonomous remote sensors. The nature of this obstacle has been the need to store energy on-board, and existing energy storage options are wholly unsatisfactory. Our company has demonstrated microscopic batteries, for use in remote sensors, and other MEMS devices, which c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-005
Budget: 04/30/99 - 10/29/99

Fuel cells offer the potential to dramatically reduce environmental pollution as well as our dependence on foreign oil. They are actively being developed as alternated energy sources for transportation, stationary and military applications. The degradation of oxygen electrode catalysts (e.g., Pt, Ag, and others) and corrosions of carbon substr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO96-005
Budget: 09/26/97 - 09/26/99

One of the limiting factors in the operation of MEMS is energy transmission and storage. It is often necessary to transmit energy for a MEMS from some external source into the circuit, thereby suffering power losses which can be significant. The reduction of the power losses is therefore a desirable goal. The purpose of this work is to develop ...
