DOE Invests $36M in Thermal Exchange Research Projects

The Department of Energy is investing $36M in 18 research projects that will methods develop new thermal exchange technologies and methods for efficient energy conversion.

The projects are part of the High Intensity Thermal Exchange through Materials and Manufacturing Processes program and the OPEN+ Cohort, High Temperature device segment, the department said Friday. The department is supporting development of compact heat exchangers and components designed to withstand high temperature and high pressure.

The exchangers would operate for thousands of hours at temperatures over 1.4K degrees Fahrenheit to generate electricity. Ohio State University and International Mezzo Technologies are among 18 participants. The full list of HITEMMP awardees can be found here.  OPEN+ awardees are listed here.

Vice Adm. Matthew Kohler, the top information warfare officer at the U.S. Navy, told C4ISRNET in an interview published Monday that the service considers information warfare as decisive both in daily operations and high-end kinetic fight. “In information warfare, while the rest of the warfare areas are involved in the high-end conflict [eventually], we consider the high-end conflict now. Constant contact with the enemy in terms of cybersecurity, being able to operate within the [electromagnetic spectrum], all of those. We consider ourselves in contact with the adversary now,” Kohler said.
