Award List:

Mixed-Feed Direct Methanol Fuel Cell

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Arthur Kaufman, Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $120,000.00
Abstract:
The Army's need for high energy-density, lightweight power sources gives incentive to the search for creative fuel cell concepts and approaches that can potentially reduce size, weight, and complexity. Success in such efforts would certainly have significant spin-off opportunities in the commercial… More

Mixed-Feed Direct Methanol Fuel Cell

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Arthur Kaufman, Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $728,398.00
Abstract:
The Phase I results give encouragement Phase II goals of a specific energy of 1 kWhr/kg and an energy density of 1 kWh/liter for a 20 W system and a 1 kWh mission are achievable under the following conditions: optimization of cathode catalyst and catalyst layer formulations to obtain higher and… More

Ultra-Lightweight, JP-8 Fueled Person-Portable Fuel Cell-Powered Generator

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: COLUMBIA UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Arthur Kaufman, Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $69,500.00
RI Contact: Marco J. Castaldi
Abstract:
We propose an SBIR Phase I effort to develop a JP-8 generator that will provide 500 Watts (net) with the initial goals of a weight of no more than 6.8 kg (15 pounds) in a package that occupies no more than 5 liters (305 cu. in.). This development will combine the respective strengths of the two… More
