A Wearable Battery Cloth

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Bob Proctor
Award Amount: $99,962.00
Abstract:
Hydrated ruthenium oxide has demonstrated outstanding volumetric charge storage capability. It is non-toxic, environmentally safe, and when used with an oxidizing counter-electrode, becomes part of a galvanic cell (a battery). Ruthenium oxide and many oxidizing metals, like zinc, are available as… More

A Wearable Battery Cloth

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Bob Proctor
Award Amount: $999,998.00
Abstract:
This Phase II technical proposal provides a comprehensive description of the proposed work for further development and commercialization of a wearable battery cloth for first responders, as part of the Wearable Energy to Power and Operate Responder Tools program. During Phase I, a breakthrough… More

Advanced Thin-film Battery Development

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Maryland
Principal Investigator: Daniel Lowy, Senior Scientist – (301) 405-3601
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Mario Dagenais
Abstract:
A zinc-water battery system for use in underwater environments is proposed, with an expected energy density significantly higher than lithium-ion batteries and slightly less than zinc-air batteries. The research proposed utilizes a concentrated electrolyte, which when combined with an outside water… More

Advanced Thin-film Battery Development

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Maryland College Park
Principal Investigator: Daniel Lowy, Senior Scientist – (301) 314-1004
Award Amount: $502,136.00
RI Contact: Mario Dagenais
Abstract:
We propose developing high energy density, non-toxic, environmentally friendly zinc-water battery system, which can be manufactured in various form factors including flexible cells, based on novel metal hydrated ruthenium (IV) oxide chemistry. The cells are flexible and have a low recharge voltage.… More
