F008.009 Manufacturing Performance Improvements for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

The objective of this effort is to provide technical engineering and manufacturing support for the development of SOFC power systems that can reduce DoD auxiliary fuel usage, reduce in-field casualties of servicemembers transporting and securing fuel, and significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the DoD. This includes activities such as the development and construction of fuel cells, balance of plant (BOP) components, and manufacturability improvements to support the deliverable of SOFC prototype: lightweight, 3kW laboratory-grade demonstration unit.
