Abstract
This NAVY Small Business Innovation Research project is directed toward the development of a novel oxygen generator that employs microarray reactors to achieve high energy density, controllable gas release rate, high conversion efficiency and safe operation. By employing microarray reactors, a high surface area catalyst can be employed without localized high pressure and temperature zones that are usually associated with conventional pack bed reactors. The specific energy of this storage method meets the oxygen storage requirement at a vehicle power system level. Both liquid form and solid form oxygen storage strategies will be developed. The oxygen generator does not need active cooling and requires no additional energy other than liquid delivery, which reduces system complexity and improves efficiency.
