Contract: HQ0147-11-C-7629
Award Amount: $99,378.00
 

Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop a high-energy and high power lithium ion (Li-ion) battery for advanced space power technologies. Yardney Technical Products (YTP), the world leader in cutting-edge Li-ion battery technology proposes to design, develop and test new improved materials for all cell components to provide higher energy density, better low temperature (below<-20 & #61616;C) performance, higher DoD in life cycling without significant loss of cycle life. The proposed space-quality high energy density (>200Wh/kg) high power (charge at C rates to>4.5V EoC and discharge at 10 rates) rechargeable Li-ion battery can accommodate long duration space missions for improved on-orbit calendar life of 10-15 years for low earth orbits (LEO), medium earth orbit (GEO, and MEO), applications. During the Phase I of the program YTP will develop new Li-ion cell chemistry with composite alloying anode materials and surface modified cathode that can charge up to 4.5V at C-rates and discharge at 10C rates.
