Title: Dual Electric Starting System fo Heavy Duty Vehicles Cold
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W56HZV-04-C-0123
Award Amount: $119,997.00
 

Abstract:

The advent of advanced electrical generation technologies has finally led to the development of novel devices that meet mission target goals for the next generation of high power and high energy density applications. Current battery systems in military vehicles are becoming increasingly unable to adequately support the full array of onboard electrical sensors as well as all weather vehicle operation. In response to this need, Mainstream proposes a dual electrical system comprised of Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries for maximum energy and ultracapacitors for maximum power. For a given DoD heavy duty vehicle, this Phase I effort will include (1) the investigation of key battery chemistries, ultracapacitor configurations, and fuel cell technologies and (2) the design of a complete dual electrical cold starting system for the given vehicle that maximizes both power and energy. In view of Mainstream's long-term commitment to the design and development of improved power production and conversion technologies and our past record of successful performance, we believe funding of this Phase I is warranted. The significant improvements in performance combined with the commercial potential and Mainstream's previous experience lead us to believe this Phase I effort will be highly successful.
