  1. Redox Tolerant Cathode for Solid Oxide Electrolysis Stacks

    SBC: Oxeon Energy, LLC            Topic: H1

    OxEon Energy proposes a combination of materials and engineering solutions to demonstrate the reduction-oxidation (redox) stability of a solid oxide electrolysis cathode during start up and operation. The redox tolerant cathode material will reduce system complexity, tolerate flow upset conditions, and provide flexibility in space based systems without a man-in-the-loop.Solid oxide electrolysis st ...

  9. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The US Missile Defense Agency is seeking to develop innovative architectures and/or high temperature electronics for increasing the temperature capability of actuators used with proportionally controlled valves/thrusters. Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F while the actuator to valve/thruster interface commonly must be limited to less than 200-300F. This relatively low temp ...

  10. Programmable Signal Generator Module

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16023

    The Department of Defenses (DoD) need for smaller and more efficient electronic beacon systems is growing due to smaller platforms that may not have the space or power delivery systems for all electronic items. There is also a need for beacons to operate in specific frequencies with the added flexibility to have each beacon generate a unique signal. The proposed Programmable Signal Generator Mod ...
