Contract: N00014-06-C-0407
Award Amount: $506,570.00
 

Abstract:

InnovaTek will develop a JP-8 fuel cell electrical generator built on a microchannel reactor design that provides a very low volume, light weight system. The objective of the Phase II work is to develop and demonstrate a prototype system that converts JP-8 fuel to a hydrogen rich feed for a solid oxide fuel cell that produces 0.5 to 1 kW electrical power. The prototype system will be suitable for advanced laboratory and supervised field testing. Key components that will be designed to meet the Navy's performance objectives include a sulfur-tolerant catalyst, a micro-channel fuel reformer, a sulfur removal system, solid oxide fuel cell, and embedded single board control computer. The integrated system will be compact, lightweight, fuel efficient and capable of processing feeds that have significant sulfur content (~3,000 ppm) for at least 600 hours before maintenance is required. System testing will be performed to demonstrate performance according to Navy requirements for size, weight, start-up time, power, signature, and safety.
