Abstract:

ITN will leverage its patented solid-state flexible thin-film 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 up to 4 hours with solar energy conversion, recharging, power management and power storage. ITN will work with our production battery company, Infinite Power Solutions, and our production thin-film photovoltaic company, Global Solar Energy, to develop an integrated flexible PV/secondary battery power system with very high power to weight and extremely long cycle life. Our thin-film battery is the only technology with the demonstrated 100,000+ full depth of discharge cycle-life needed to last the lifetime of the system. 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 1580 g and is designed to replace or augment the standard non-rechargeable 1240 g BA5590 battery used extensively by our military today. This slight increase in weight is well substantiated when all multifunctional power system factors are considered.
