The NRC has developed a one-of-a-kind, in-situ rotating ice adhesion rig, where researchers are able to measure the adhesion properties of ice to various icephobic coatings in controlled and repeatable conditions. Innovators creating these ice-resistant veneers see their potential application on drones as a match made in heaven, as UAVs’ limited onboard power and payload means a passive ice-prevention method is preferable.

According to Navigant Research, the global market for energy storage (ES) is expected to increase from $1.3B in 2016 to $16.5B in 2024Footnote 1. What is not widely agreed upon is which technologies will be in a position to seize the lion’s share of those opportunities, what it will take to bring those technologies to the point where they can demonstrate the optimal cost, performance, and safety attributes when the market comes calling, and how future projections for these attributes can be objectively compared. NRC is currently looking for partners and supporters for the development of a Technology Development Matrix (TDM) as a tool to meet these needs.
