Award List:

Hybrid Ceramic/Metallic Recuperator for SOFC Generators

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Anthony F. Litka, Mr.
Award Amount: $99,971.00
Abstract:
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are one of the most efficient and cleanest power generating systems under development. A key component in the SOFC generator is the cathode-air heat exchanger or recuperator, which ensures that the cathode air (and, thereby, the cells) is at a sufficient temperature… More

Marine Portable Power Unit

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Andrew Barnett, Senior Software Engineer
Award Amount: $98,468.00
Abstract:
Many military missions involve the use of equipment that requires small batteries for power where AC grid power is unavailable. Also, there is a need for a high quality power output device that conditions a power input to make it suitable to power sensitive communications equipment. The weight of… More

Hybrid Ceramic/Metallic Recuperator for SOFC Generators

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Anthony F. Litka, Mr
Award Amount: $740,060.00
Abstract:
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are one of the most efficient and cleanest power generating systems being developed. A key component is the cathode air heat exchanger, or recuperator, which ensures that the cathode air, and thereby the cells, are at sufficient temperature to permit ion mobility ¿… More

Advanced Hybrid Thermoelectric-Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Conversion for High Efficiency Portable Power

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Tony Litka, Manager, Engineering
Award Amount: $99,982.00
Abstract:
The proposal would provide the design and basic product development work to augment the power generation efficiency of fuel cells developed by Acumentrics Corp. by converting waste heat into electricity by highly efficient thermoelectric (TE) power generation. Three paths will be explored in Phase I… More

Marine Portable Power Unit

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Andrew Barnett, Senior Electrical Enginee
Award Amount: $599,661.00
Abstract:
A conceptual design of a battery charging station with UPS back-up capability was completed under contract M67854-C-6509. The resulting system can charge up to twelve BB-2590 batteries at the maximum charging current (to minimize charging time) and provide 1000 Watts of back-up power (both AC and… More

Integral Multi-Fuel Reactor for Efficient Power Delivery Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Douglas Schmidt, Director Engineering – (781) 461-8251
Award Amount: $140,248.00
Abstract:
The increased need for portable efficient power has led to the use of the fuel cell as a means of delivering that power. However, portable power also means the ability to utilize any available fuel as the situation would arise. A fuel reformer is needed that supplies the proper reformate to the… More

Bio-fuel Reforming for High-Efficiency Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Generators

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Neil Fernandes, Manager Fuels Engineering – (781) 461-8251
Award Amount: $77,784.00
Abstract:
Acumentrics proposes to utilize the unique properties of bio-fuel to deliver an integral reformer system that will directly utilize the thermal and electrochemical effect of the fuel cell through Acumentrics"tubular technology. This intimate contact with the fuel cell will levelize heat… More

Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Daniel Danila, Sr. Engineer – (781) 461-8251
Award Amount: $147,332.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: A hybrid tubular SOFC/gas turbine power system is proposed to increase the endurance of UAS and RPA. The work to be performed in the five tasks within the 9 month Phase I effort is described in detail in the full proposal. The applicable aircraft and system requirements will be… More
