  • Systems and Methods for Wave Energy Conversion

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Background: This technology provides a low cost low maintenance solution for generating electricity from ocean waves. Its unique magnetic coupling system isolates all mechanical components from the harsh marine environment making it ideal for powering sensor arrays communication nodes or other applications within the coastal zone. The technology will help to break down multiple barriers (power and communication) and accelerate development of coastal sensor networks across multiple sectors (environment security commerce etc.) growing the market in the process.

  • Solar Dryer for Multipurpose Drying Needs

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Food losses cause a waste of precious resources, including land, water, energy, agricultural inputs, and human labor, used in the production of the lost food. Food loss is caused by a lack of low-cost, effective drying technology to dry food. Currently, over 95 percent of smallholder farmers use open-air drying to dry their crops. While dryers exist, there remains a void for products that are designed to target smallholder farmers.

  • Fuel Cell System for Aircraft Propulsion

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: Aircraft thrust is traditionally come from a combustion engine (internal combustion or gas turbine) coupled to either a propeller or a nozzle to produce thrust. These systems deliver high performance but also have high emissions and low fuel efficiency. Some proposals have used fuel cells as propulsion devices by using the electricity a fuel cell produces to power an electric motor linked to a propeller. This system lowers emissions and increases fuel efficiencies but increases weight due to the substantial electric motors required for primary propulsive power.
