On Board Hydrogen Storage and Power Systems for Yard Dog

Open Date: 01/12/2010

Close Date: 02/12/2010

Funding Organization: U.S. Navy

Funding Number: N00164-10-R-GS53


This Request for Proposal (RFP) is for basic/applied R&D to identify on board hydrogen storage materials, processes, and power system designs to significantly improve and extend the operating performance currently exhibited by state-of-the-art yard tractor utility vehicles. There will be two phases to the project. 


Phase I will consist of conducting an engineering design analysis to identify and compare potential hydrogen storage technologies, such as metal hydrides, adsorbents, chemical hydrides (non-reversible liquids, solids), and physical storage (high-pressure, cryo-compressed systems) for use on a Yard Dog utility vehicle. 


Phase II will consist of constructing and integrating the proposed hydrogen storage/power system into the proposed Yard Dog utility vehicle for a one-year operational demonstration at DDWG Robin Air Force Base.
