  2. Non-Toxic Obscurants and Dispersal System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06007

    SOCOM and other DOD services have urgent need for safe, non-toxic visual obscurants that can be rapidly dispersed in a battlefield or into a vehicle. These obscurants must block or disrupt all visual capability within their area of effect. The dispersion must be rapid and easy to implement by field personnel. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop a non-toxic obscurant and dispersion system c ...

  3. Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium-ion Polymer (Li-polymer) Battery Safety

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has demonstrated that electroactive polymer coatings (EAP) may be applied to the surface of the cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries to protect against catastrophic cell failure. These EAP coatings form an electrochemical"switch"that can prevent catastrophic failure in lithium-ion batteries by reversibly changing from a conductor to an insulator on overdischarg ...
