Safe High Power (High Rate) Lithium Battery for MKV (Missiles) with Long storage Life

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Joseph Kejha, Director of Battery R & D
Award Amount: $99,638.00
Abstract:
Thermal reserve batteries are an important necessary component for the proper function and optimum performance of guided missiles, many munitions systems, rockets, and other military systems requiring instant high power after a long period of storage. The technology and performance for these… More

High Voltage (4 V ) Electrochemical (Ultra) Capacitor for Satellite Energy Storage

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Novis Smith, VP of technology
Award Amount: $99,914.00
Abstract:
Satellite mission life is limited by the life of its batteries which are significantly limited by the amount of pulsing, peak loads or spikes which occur during discharge cycles. A capacitor is coupled with the battery in order to reduce or eliminate these damaging current demands and thereby… More

Advanced Low Cost Automated Manufacturing Technology for Prismatic Lithium Battery Cells (Discrete-Parts)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
