Construction Phase Started, ARPA-E Concept Paper Submitted
LPP’s design team has now completed the six-month design phase of the project, finishing design work on the device, the shielding wall and the vacuum chamber. We are now into the fabrication and construction phase, which will last three months.
LPP has submitted a concept paper to the new Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy. ARPA-E is a new agency, molded on DAPRA, which is soliciting proposals for “transformational” energy technology. Based on the 8-page concept papers, ARPA-E will ask selected proposers to submit a full 50-page application. We will know if we are selected for that step by late June.
