Man-Portable Integrated Flexible Power System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
ITN will leverage its patented solid-state flexible secondary lithium battery and photovoltaic (PV) technology to develop enabling innovative integrated power systems for man-portable applications. This power system will provide 50 W for more than 4 hours with solar energy conversion, recharging, power management and power storage. ITN will develop an integrated flexible PV/secondary battery power system with very high power to weight and extremely long cycle life. The battery technology will have cycle-life, flexibility, per area energy capacity and rates commensurate with monolithic integration in commercial flexible PV products. Combined with our thin-film PV, which has the lightweight form factor and high efficiencies needed for portability, ITN will develop a self-recharging power system to operate field equipment such as two-way radios, global positioning systems, computers and field sensors. This revolutionary technology is projected to weigh just 1.1 Kg and is designed to replace or augment the standard non-rechargeable 1.24 Kg BA5590 battery used extensively by our military today. This weight and form factor is well suited for present military field operations especially when all multifunctional power system factors are considered.
