Abstract
WORK IS PROPOSE TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILTY OF SODIUM\SULFUR-SELENIUM BATTERIES FOR ELECTRICALLY POWERED WEAPONS SYSTEMS ABOARD AIR BREATHING AIRCRAFT AND FOR ENERGY STORAGE ABOARD ORBITAL FLIGHT VEHICLES. SEVERAL POTENTIAL ADANTAGES OF THE SODIUM\ SULFUR-SELENIUM BATTERY OVER THE SODIUM-SULFUR BATTERY ARE POINTED OUT, INCLUDING HIGHER POWER AND ENERGY DENSITIES AND LONGER LIFETIMES. BASED ON SOME PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENTS WHICH WE HAVE PERFORMED, A PLAN OF WORK IS PRESENTED WHICH INCLUDES: 1) EVALUATION OF THE SODIUM-SULFUR -SELENIUM PHASE DIAGRAM,2) DESIGN AND FRABRICATION OF TWO OPERATING CELLS, AND 3) CYCLIC TESTING OF THE CELLS TO EVALUATEOPERTIONS CHARACTERISTICS.
