CFDRC to demonstrate its Bio‐Battery technology at 44th Power Sources Conference

Las Vegas, Nevada, June 14‐17

Huntsville, Ala. – CFD Research Corporation (CFDRC), a high‐tech small business developing innovative 
technologies for military and commercial markets, will be demonstrating its award winning Bio‐Battery 
technology at the 44th Power Sources Conference in Las Vegas, Nev. The Bio‐Battery is a novel
 micropower source which harvests energy from biological fuels such as sugars and converts them into
 electrical energy providing a sustained, on‐demand power source. The product is adaptable for many
 low power applications in both the military and commercial markets. CFDRC’s Bio‐Battery offers several
 advantages over conventional fuel cells and batteries; including reduced size and weight, instant
 recharge, flexible shape, renewable biocatalysts, environmental‐friendliness, room temperature 
operation, and readily available fuel source.

“The Bio‐Battery is a unique product which has the potential to overcome a number of limitations with
 existing electrochemical power sources while generating energy in a clean, renewable fashion,” said
Sameer Singhal, director of micro power and sensing at CFDRC. “This demonstration of a fully integrated
 system powering a real‐world electronic device for extended time on multiple days is a
 testament to the maturity of our technology.”

During the conference CFDRC will be demonstrating a fully‐integrated Bio‐Battery system consisting of
five individual cells stacked in series to provide an open circuit voltage of >3.5V and a maximum current 
of >1.5mA. The Bio‐Battery uses a glucose‐based solution as the fuel source and powers an electronic 
circuit consisting of a microprocessor plus LCD display. The Bio‐Battery system operates with an average
 power of ~1mW (V=2.0V and I=0.5mA). The technology has been developed in collaboration with the 
CERDEC C2D Army Power Division and the demonstration will be running at their booth (#216).

CFDRC envisions military applications such as soldier portable power, unmanned chemical/biological
 detection, and remote surveillance. Additional commercial applications are envisioned such as
consumer electronics, toys, and implantable medical devices. CFDRC is actively seeking partners for
further development and commercialization of the technology.
