Title: Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery with Enhanced Reliability & Safety for Missile Defense Applications
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-10-C-7347
Award Amount: $99,945.00
 

Abstract:

TIAX proposes to improve the reliability and safety of lithium ion rechargeable batteries by developing detection algorithms, suitable for inclusion in battery management systems, which monitor for formation of in-cell internal shorts, the overwhelming cause of thermal runaway safety incidents involving lithium-ion batteries. These detection algorithms will be based on electrical signals that TIAX has identified which constitute high-reliability markers for the presence of in-cell internal short circuits. Early detection of the formation of internal shorts in lithium ion cells will afford opportunities for preemptive intervention to avert catastrophic failures and their associated consequences.
