QynCap Energy Storage Device for Airborne Directed Energy Weapons
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The Navy is in the process of improving the warfighting capability of critical platforms (JSF, F/A-18, etc.) by introducing laser-based weapon systems that require pulses of DC electric power. The preferred method to provide power to this weapon system is to utilize high power density energy storage devices to generate the high currents necessary for firing, and to recharge these devices with a lower power density source already onboard the aircraft. In Phases 1 and 2 of this SBIR project, Qynergy has developed an asymmetric ultracapacitor that has the potential to provide the performance required for the laser based weapon application. In Phase 2.5 Qynergy will tailor and scale the ultracapacitor to meet the power requirements and work with aircraft and laser developers to meet the charge/discharge requirements for this application. The objectives of this Phase 2.5 SBIR effort are to design, fabricate, test and deliver hybrid electrochemical capacitor modules along with interface electronics for use in Navy high-energy laser systems.
