Contract: FA8650-10-M-2062
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Current micro air vehicles (MAV) are limited to 30 minutes of operation due to capacity of the 100 g battery they carry. Next generation MAVs utilizing an advanced power system envisioned in this project will increase the mission duration to at least 90 minutes using a 130 g battery. This increase in mission duration will require an increase in energy storage density from 125 wh/kg to 403.8 wh/kg. Advanced solid state batteries have the potential to deliver an energy density of 799 wh/kg, which would allow a MAV to achieve the objective of at least doubling the mission duration. Excellatron has years of experience developing solid state thin film battery (SSTFB) technology and is using insights gained from that experience to develop the higher performance and lower cost advanced solid state batteries.
