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 discovery led to more than an order of magnitude improvement in battery capacity per unit area. While this discovery was not anticipated at the outset, it now allows the power available to first responders through a jacket lined with a battery-cloth product to be increased commensurately, without compromising mobility or weight. Whereas a square meter of material was originally conceived to replace a handful of AA batteries, today it holds the promise of providing the power of as many as 70 AA batteries. FlexEl`s business strategy centers on commercialization of the battery cloth product concept. This Phase II proposal is designed to allow us to achieve the milestones necessary to privately finance full-scale production and broad-based commercialization.
