Abstract:

Altex Technologies Corporation, a small business, and Pennsylvania State University, a research institution, have teamed up to develop the innovative Person Portable JP-8 Fueled Fuel Cell Power Generator (PJF-Gen). The 500-1000 watts system will be lightweight, the size of a lunch box, will reliably operate on JP-8 and start fast, thereby meeting all Navy requirements. This is achieved by using a commercially available high temperature PEM fuel cell and an innovative compact and reliable reformer that converts JP-8 to a reformate that is compatible with the fuel cell. Under the Phase II Base effort, analysis and testing will be used to develop and demonstrate the innovative PJF-Gen system in the laboratory at a TRL of 4. Options 1 and 2 will raise the TRL levels to 5 and 6, respectively, leading up to a Navy supervised field test of a prototype unit. Results of these Phase II efforts will provide a basis for commerciializing the system for Navy, and other applications.
