Title: Hybrid Battery Ultracapacitor System For Human Robotic Systems
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX11CG30P
Award Amount: $99,630.00
 

Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop a hybrid battery-ultra capacitor storage system that powers human-robotic systems in space missions. Space missions involving human-robotic systems utilizing battery based electrical power often undergo numerous operations within each complete cycle. During Phase I of this program Yardney in collaboration with Maxwell Technologies propose to develop a hybrid system consisting of a high energy Li-ion battery, high power ultracapacitor (UCAP) and the electronic interface control module. The hybrid system to be developed in this program will provide electrical energy to human-robotic systems for advanced next generation space missions.
