Abstract : The objective of this contract is to develop the technology required for a high performance H2 - O2 fuel cell system for future Air Force space vehicle applications. During this reporting period, an improved design of the lightweight, internal liquid-cooled fuel cell stack was completed, and fabrication of two stacks of this improved design was initiated. Work was also performed in the areas of Thermal Control Subsystem design, Product Water Subsystem design, and the development of critical components of the fuel cell system. (Author)
