To meet Navy needs for high performance and safe lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries for naval aircraft, ADA Technologies Inc. (ADA) and its university collaborator propose to optimize and transfer a highly tunable, high performance and safe, block copolymer derived nanoporous separator. The innovative strategy provides a powerful tool to allow exquisite tuning of performance and safety features of the nanostructured separator to meet Navy’s requirement for next generation Li-ion batteries for Navy aircraft applications. The Phase II effort is designed to intentionally and efficiently build on our highly successful Phase I (base) program and culminate in a Li-ion battery prototype performance and safety demonstration for the U.S. Navy. In Phase II, separator optimization efforts will yield excellent membrane uniformity, quality, porosity and mechanical properties. The Phase I Option will demonstrate and optimize an enabling separator safety characteristics.
