NASA seeks partners for commercialisation of solid state batteries

The NASA Technology Transfer Programme (NTTP) is seeking partners for its “novel lithium-sulfur designs, including sulfur-selenium on graphene cathodes, and lightweight bipolar plate stacking and packaging battery designs”.

According to the NTTP website “SABERS, as this portfolio of innovations is named, refers to Solid-state Architecture Batteries for Enhanced Rechargeability and Safety. Developed jointly at NASAs Glenn, Langley and Ames Research Centers, SABERS includes several advanced material, manufacturing and computational design innovations that enable a new paradigm in battery performance. The primary target application is next-generation electric aviation propulsion systems, yet SABERS will benefit other applications, too.

“SABERS is unique in several aspects: it deploys graphene-based manufacturing processes for the cathode and bipolar plates, and it uses a solid-state electrolyte in place of the liquid electrolyte found in other lithium-sulfur battery designs.

“Whether for large electric vehicle systems or small electronic devices, SABERS can potentially set new benchmarks in energy density and power, all while offering the utmost in safety and reliability. And importantly, the inventors intentionally designed environmentally friendly and sustainable materials and manufacturing methods into SABERS’ portfolio. SABERS can help address today and tomorrows needs for electrification and sustainability.

“NASA is seeking industry partners for commercialisation. SABERS is available for license as a complete portfolio or as individual component technologies.”
