Abstract:

The overall objective of this SBIR project is to design and demonstrate an enabling technology for the power supply of micro unmanned aerial vehicles. This MAUV power technology is lightweight and very high in energy density. IGR will develop a stainless steel/ductile-ceramic-composite SOFC, using pre-loaded carbon fuel, to meet the power supply needs of MUAVs. The technology provides for long endurance flights with zero maintenance requirements. The use of powered C(s) in the fuel plenum of each cell eliminates all fuel tanks, pumps, lines and processing. The maintenance free shelf-life of all solid-state system is essentially unlimited.
