Research Institution
In order to reduce DTRAs dependence on batteries and their associated logistics train, advanced power supplies, which are able to charge quickly and work in a wide variety of environmental conditions, and are reusable over many charge-discharge cycles without loss of performance, are greatly required. Lynntech proposes to develop safe, high energy, long-life (SHELL) solid-state ultracapacitors by using rationally-designed nanostructured electrode materials and solid-state electrolytes. The SHELL ultracapacitors can provide reliable power to military operations, particularly surveillance and remotely operated technology-based activities over a wide operating temperture range. During the Phase I, Lynntech will develop innovative electrode materials and solid-state electrolytes. Lynntech will fabricate and test ultracapacitor cells to demonstrate high energy density, high power density, long cycle life, and operation over wide temperature ranges. During the Phase II, Lynntech will optimize the electrode and electrolyte components, produce a prototype ultracapacitor, and demonstrate its ability to meet DTRAs requirements.
