20 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Hazen Research, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Development of superior Li-ion batteries (LIBs) is a critical part of the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) mission to improve the economic, social, and environmental sustainability of electric vehicles (EV). This mission, “EV Everywhere Grand Challenge” seeks to reduce the cost of the EV batteries from the current more than $250/kWh to less than ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11c
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

Realizing solid state lighting systems with high efficiency and enhanced functionality will require the adoption of color-mixing (cm-LEDs) architectures combining highly efficient red, green, blue and amber light emitting diodes. Already, the hybrid architectures (hy-LEDs) pair phosphor-converted wide bandgap nitride LEDs with (AlxGa1...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T008
Budget: 05/24/16 - 12/30/16

Oceanit proposes to develop and demonstrate novel, tailored, designer separator materials with optimized properties to maximize lithium-ion cell/battery performance, life, safety and reliability.

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T003
Budget: 02/11/16 - 02/15/18
PI: Jung Yoon

Agiltron in collaboration with National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will develop a new class of high-efficiency and lightweight broadband inverted metamorphic multi-junction (IMM) solar cells for the uninterrupted flight missions of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The approach is closely coupled with Agiltrons extensive experience in hig...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T006
Budget: 09/30/15 - 09/29/17

With the continued electrification of military systems, lithium-ion (Li ion) batteries are increasingly targeted for electrical energy storage due to exceptional energy and power density. However, Li ion batteries operating in hostile thermal and mechanical environments typical of military aircraft are prone to catastrophic thermally-induced fai...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: EIC Laboratories, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T006
Budget: 09/28/15 - 09/29/17

Rechargeable lithium ion battery systems can provide power throughout the aircraft, including engine or Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) starting, avionics, emergency, and other systems. Because of their high specific energy/power and potential thermal instability, they can present hazards if improperly designed, tested, handled, or stored. To address...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T001
Budget: 06/10/15 - 11/16/15

Fault dynamics of large format lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery packs are complex, difficult to predict, and challenging to protect against. Consequently, there is great interest in developing fault mitigation strategies to optimize pack performance and prevent individual cell failures from propagating to other cells or the host platform. During thi...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T006
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

With the continued electrification of military systems, lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are increasingly targeted for electrical energy storage due to their wide operating temperature range and exceptional energy density. However, Li-ion batteries operating in hostile thermal and mechanical environments typical of military aircraft are prone to c...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: EIC Laboratories, Inc.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T006
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

EIC, in collaboration with NREL, proposes to develop safe, large-format aircraft Li-ion batteries where thermal propagation of an overheated cell to neighboring cells or group of cells will be prevented by integrating novel thermal management technologies.

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Agiltron Corp.

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T003
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15
