Technical Abstract (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words):

In this Phase I SBIR proposal, Structured Ions, LLC, will develop and demonstrate a structural supercapacitor that synergistically provides both structural load-bearing capabilities and electrical energy storage and distribution capabilities. The proposed structural supercapacitor is based on carbon-fiber--epoxy composite laminates suitably modified to provide the required multifunctionality of electrical energy storage in load-bearing aerospace structures. These multifunctional structural supercapacitors provide increased operational parameters in electrical propulsion aircraft without introducing parasitic weight by using batteries. Thereby, Structured Ions, LLC, provides a key enabling technology for commercial development and deployment of both unmanned and manned aircraft powered by electrical propulsion.

          
          
     
Potential NASA Applications (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words):

NASA applications included manned and unmanned aerial systems powered by electrical propulsion. This includes cargo and passenger transport electric airplanes, and UAVs for payload delivery, surveillance, data gathering, and weather monitoring applications

          
          
     
Potential Non-NASA Applications (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words):

Non-NASA applications include power storage for portable electronics, automotive panels for electric vehicles, UAVs for payload delivery and recreation, UAVs for law enforcement, DoD, and other security applications, and electric aircraft for urban air transport.
