LITTLE FALLS, NJ - December 8, 2010 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC.BB:XDSL) said today, that it has successfully completed the technical work under the Phase 2 STTR grant awarded by the US Army for the multi cell Smart NanoBattery.
small business involved in innovative research projects for miniature energy storage designs, by helping accelerate research and development concepts for long term commercialization efforts. The STTR funding enabled the mPhase technical team to develop functional prototypes and to conduct detailed analysis of the novel multi cell reserve battery designs. The funding allowed the mPhase team to create a substantial IP portfolio and to achieve a Technical Readiness Level (TRL level) 4/5, which conventionally means that the original Smart Nanobattery design and technology used in its implementation progressed to the extent that they now meet the criteria for prototype testing in both laboratory and simulated deployment environments.
The completed Smart Nanobattery is based on a complex MEMS device consisting of layers of silicon and glass fabricated to the exact specifications of the mPhase team by its commercial foundry partner. The mPhase team finished the assembly by populating each battery with the electrode stacks of lithium and carbon monofluoride materials (Li/CFx), that delivered 3 volts per cell. Because of the unique design of the multi cell battery, each cell in the battery has very long shelf until it is activated via a technique called electrowetting, which gives the mPhase reserve battery one of its key attributes programmable triggering.
mPhase is currently working to secure additional funds to optimize the battery s design and increase the technical level of development towards commercial opportunities for defense and commercial applications.
The development of the Smart NanoBattery has been undertaken with funding support from a Phase II STTR Army award.
The Company s scalable smart reserve cell technology is one of the items in the current Defense Appropriations Bill that has been passed by the United States House of Representatives and is awaiting final action by the United States Senate.
