Maxpower is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Safe, High-Power Battery for Sonobuoys. The abstract given for this project is as follows: The Navy has established a need to update the present high power sonobuoy power source used in Air Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) Systems. Present technology for the ASW sonobuoy battery utilizes a primary Lithium/SO2 battery chemistry which is capable of providing 20, 10 second pulses drawing 5500 W of power at 65 V. The existing system offers a low cost, high power solution, however concerns have been raised over the safety of this chemistry. Under high rates of discharge, the SO2 cell generates excessive amounts of heat which cause the cells to vent, releasing toxic fumes to the surroundings. MaxPower offers a baseline Li/MnO2 cell system as replacement for the Li/ SO2. Unique in this baseline cell are the cathode formulation and superior solution properties that can sustain high discharge condition. We showed equivalent pulse data showing that the Li/MnO2 cell system can meet the established power requirements, and we will validate this capability at the full size cell hardware level. Maxpower is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: High Performance Electrochemical Capacitor Using Nanomaterials for Electrodes.. The abstract given for this project is as follows: MaxPower's overall goal of the Phase I program is to use electrospinning technology to produce carbon nanofibers for ultracapacitor applications. These fibers will be subjected to subsequesnt processing to enhance their electrochemical performance and then coated onto foil to form composite electrodes. The composite electrodes will be used to fabricate prototype ultra-capacitors that are capable of delivering 10 Wh/kg energy density and 34 kw/kg power density while meeting the specified military temperature range. Maxpower is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Long Endurance, High Power Battery. The abstract given for this project is as follows: Maxpower Inc. is proposing the replacement of the present UAV-Sonobouy battery chemistry with a novel high power Lithium Monofluoride[Li/(CF)n] system. Though historically used in low power applications, Maxpower has proven that Li/(CF)n systems can meet high power requirements by combining proprietary thin cathode technology with a highly porous electrospun separator. Projections based upon lab scale tests show that a 20% reduction in volume and a 33% increase in flight time can be achieved with this new system. If implemented, the Li/(CF)n chemistry will eliminate the consumption of silver in the current Magnesium/Silver-Chloride system, offering a significant reduction raw material costs. Maxpower is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: High-Capacity Primary Battery for Extreme Environments. The abstract given for this project is as follows: MaxPower's goal during the Phase I program is to design and demonstrate the capability of a primary Li|CFx battery assembly that is capable of delivering in excess of 12 hours operation at -40'aC in a battery architecture that weighs less than 0.7 pounds and fits a 14 in3 envelope. Successful battery performance will hinge upon MaxPower's expertise in manufacturing of thin electrodes and implementation into hermetically sealed hardware. The battery architecture includes implementation of SOC technology using commercially available Integrated Circuits with minimal power consumption and low cost impacts. The combined battery chemistry with SOC implementation will limit costs and overall product development time. The developed SOC circuitry will be able to project remaining capacity based on temperature and previous discharge rates. Additionally, the battery assembly will contain an imbedded LED display in the casing that will indicate to the user remaining battery capacity when initiated by push button. After demonstration of the feasibility of the selected chemistry and SOC implementation, MaxPower will use modeling techniques to project performances for Phase II prototype development and build.

The distribution of more 1.6 million ARB tokens will deepen the connection between Arbitrum and Stargate. Updated Mar 29, 2023 at 9:30 p.m. UTC Members of the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) managing decentralized exchange (DEX) Stargate Finance are debating what to do with the expected allocation of 1.6 million arbitrum (ARB) tokens worth just under $2 million. The tokens have not yet arrived, said MaxPower, an employee of LayerZero Labs, which manages the protocol upon which Stargate is built and who was the co-host of a community call with roughly 400 attending, including CoinDesk, on Wednesday. Once they do, however, Stargate’s governing DAO will have to decide whether to hold, sell, deploy or delegate the trove of coins. Stargate has $364 million in total value locked (TVL) and nearly 22% of it comes from the Arbitrum platform, according to DeFiLlama. “Arbitrage is a volume hub for Stargate and a lot of our volume comes either to or from Arbitrum," said MaxPower on the call. Some in attendance suggested the DAO should distribute the ARB tokens to users or deploy them as a liquidity incentive. Meanwhile, other governance token holders have suggested delegating the ARB coins so Stargate can participate in Arbitrum governance. This would “help shape the future of that chain,” MaxPower said. “There’s a clear product market fit, so supporting that ecosystem is always of interest,” MaxPower added.

This project will develop an affordable, magnesium diboride superconductor conductor for next generation High Energy Physics accelerator magnets and components. The International Linear Collider (ILC), a pair of opposing electron and positron linear accelerators, needs to be supplied with electrons and positrons. The positrons are generated by pair-production in a metal target exposed to a high intensity photon beam. The required photon beam is generated by passing an electron beam through a succession of magnets with alternating polarities. This so-called "undulator" is to be constructed from magnets wound with the superconductor magnesium diboride which is capable of operating over a wide temperature range (margin) in a high radiation environment.

Some of these problems can be circumvented by compressing plasma rings, which is what we propose here. Many problems exist for mainline fusion concepts that need to be resolved in order to make an economic fusion reactor. The work proposed here supports new concepts that have the potential for mitigating many of those problems.
