Abstract:

API Engineering LLC is proposing an innovative oxygen source for fuel cell systems that uses an aqueous chlorate solution for its oxygen storage composition. An innovative thermal/mechanical decomposition approach provides oxygen generation in a low risk and compact system. The approach is easily adapted to provide oxygen pressure/temperature conditions to match different fuel cells and fuel reformers. The integrated system requires less than 19 inches of length to provide 50 kg of deliverable oxygen in a 21 inch UUV. As a liquid composition refueling is straigtforward, allowing mission turnaround from outside with no need to open any hull joints. The approach meets required storage, operational, and safety requirements.
