2018 CREB Biannual Fall Meeting
Monday, December 10, 2018
Jeong H. Kim Engineering Bldg, College Park, MD
Army Energy Storage Challenge Program in Wearable Batteries for Soldiers
This meeting will focus on a tentative ARL funded challenge program to
develop a safe, nonflammable, contoured (flexible) battery to wear on a
soldier platform (Vest, cummerbund). We have speakers lined up from PM SWAR,
MCOE-Protection, ARL, including a talk by the PM SWAR shop on a Soldier
Power Sprint program meeting later this winter.
More detailed agenda will be forthcoming.
Registration is $30.
Launched in late 2014, the Center for Research on Extreme Batteries (CREB) grew out of a partnership between Army Research Lab (ARL) senior chemist Kang Xu and UMD associate professor Chunsheng Wang (Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering). After a series of successful projects and publications, the pair proposed a center to promote open access to facilities and collaborative research in advanced battery materials, technologies, and characterization techniques. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) joined UMD and the ARL's efforts to make CREB a reality.
