Development of Logistical Fuel Processors to Meet Army TARDEC & TACOM Needs

1 recipient will receive $3,000,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: Development of Logistical Fuel Processors to Meet Army, TARDEC and : Fuel cells still hold great promise for improving vehicle fuel efficiency, delivering silent watch capabilities and reducing maintenance requirements, both by being reliable in their own right and reducing engine operating hours. They can be used for both auxiliary and primary power generation. In order for them to be compatible with existing logistic infrastructure, effective logistical fuel processors must be developed. Fuel processor attributes to be optimized include: overall efficiency, fuel flexibility, activity maintenance and poison tolerance of the various catalysts, startup/shutdown time-scales, process robustness, reliability/ruggedness, safety, thermal/acoustic signature and integration, and reductions in overall weight and volume. Additional efforts will be conducted to design and adapt fuel processor/fuel cell systems to appropriate electrical loads with respect to voltage, current, AC/DC operation, peak power requirements versus average power and overall autonomy time.
