Abstract
CERAMATEC AND SAFT HAVE FORMED A TEAM AND ARE PLEASED TO JOINTLY PROPOSE AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP, FABRICATE, AND TEST/EVALUATE A PROTOTYPE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY HIGH POWER DENSITY THERMAL BATTERY SYSTEM. THE BATTERY UTILIZES A HIGH CONDUCTIVITY LOWER OPERATING TEMPERATURE SOLID ELECTROLYTE WHICH OFFERS NO DEGRADATION OF OVC, HAS LOW HEAT REQUIREMENTS AND HIGH INTEGRITY DUE TO ABSENCE OF LIQUID/VOLATILE HASES. THE THRUST OF THE DEVELOPMENT EFFORT WILL BE IN THREE CRITICAL AREAS: (1) SUPERIOR BATTERY MATERIALS AND THIN CELL BIPOLAR DESIGN THAT REDUCES IR SIGNIFICANTLY ALLOWING HIGH POWER DENSITY TO OBTAIN, (2) FAST ELECTROCHEMICAL KINETICS ALLOWING GREATER UTILIZATION OF STOICHIOMETRIC CAPACITY, AND (3) IMPROVES THERMAL MANAGEMENT DUE TO LOWER TEMPERATURE OPERATION. CERAMATEC'S INNOVATIVE MULTIPHASE SOLID ELECTROLYTE, CURRENTLY UTILIZED IN SAFT'S HIGH PERFORMANCE BATTERIES, COUPLED WITH THIN CELL TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES A VIABLE APPROACH TO DEVELOPING HIGH PERFORMANCE BATTERIES CAPABLE OF PROVIDING HIGH PEAK POWER DENSITIES IN VERY SMALL VOLUMES. SAFT, A RECOGNIZED LEADER IN DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT, MANUFACTURE, AND TESTING OF BATTERIES FOR MILITARY/AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS, PROVIDES INPUT IN COMPONENT DESIGN AND ASSEMBLY AND TESTING OF THE BATTERY. CERAMATEC WILL FABRICATE THIN CELLS AND SAFT WILL ASSEMBLE THE BATTERY AND EVALUATE ITS PERFORMANCE.
