NSF is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950. It’s mission is “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense..." As part of the effort to support research and people to create knowledge, the NSF offers monetary awards and is the funding source for 24% of all federally supported basic research conducted by America's colleges and universities. This Phase I project will support Feasible’s development of the first commercial ultrasonic battery analysis unit. It will be necessary for demonstrating the applicability of ultrasonic analysis to the battery R&D, manufacturing, and second-life battery markets.
