The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to develop low-cost sensor technologies that can be directly integrated with hydrogen systems and are resistant to contaminants. The sensor must detect/measure hydrogen in situ. For each sensor project, an applicant must explain how a proposed technology will exceed the current state of the art. The goal is to develop a sensing technology for determination of hydrogen presence prior to reaching a flammable mixture. Sensors should be suitable for at least one of the following applications: stationary systems, portable devices, transportation, or infrastructure.
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
