  3. Advancements in Thermal Battery Pellet Manufacture

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA09010

    Thermal batteries are a mission-critical component utilized in virtually every weapon system. All thermal batteries require four types of pellets that comprise the cell stack(s), i.e., the energy-producing portion of the battery. Pellet size (diameter and thickness) and the number of pellets required vary by battery type and application. Pellets are manufactured by compaction of their powdered co ...
