Abstract
With the ever increasing power demands required for the dismounted soldier, ongoing efforts have been underway to identify alternatives to battery use. Emerging technologies such as fuel cells show promise for increased power densities and thus have the potential for reducing footprint and enabling longer mission times, whilst thermoelectric devices can convert the waste heat into useable power from various sources such as that produced by fuel cells and natural body heat. This report describes the most significant results of a three year Technology Investment Fund (TIF) project focused on addressing materials issues related to solid-oxide fuel cells and thermoelectric materials. Namely, the development of a novel porous electrolyte supported solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) architecture and the development of novel materials for SOFC cathodes, thermoelectric oxides and polymers.
