Title: Thermally Responsive Energy Storage - Phase Change Materials encapsulated in Carbon Foam
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9550-12-C-0013
Award Amount: $99,970.00
 

Abstract:

ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase I Small Business Technology Transition (STTR) program will develop and demonstrate a Hybrid Graphitic Foam with tailored surface chemistry for optimal heat transfer characteristics for high heat flux, high thermal energy storage applications. Such a material system, in combination with an infused Phase Change Material (PCM) or Metal Hydride (MH) will exhibit several clear performance advantages for a high transient thermal load and energy storage thermal management device and the impact of this innovation on Air Force requirements for directed energy weapons thermal management is immediate and will have a profound impact on system design, performance, and complexity. BENEFIT: The hybrid graphitic foam high heat flux, high thermal energy density storage materials will provide for a revolutionary class of robust semi-passive thermal management devices for power electronics, RF systems, high power computing, laser systems and other advanced applications that exhibit high transient heat loads.
