Abstract
THE MILITARY SERVICES ARE IN CONSTANT NEED OF IMPROVEMENTS IN PERFORMANCE OF ALL TYPES OF BATTERIES. NORMALLY, THESE IMPROVEMENTS COME IN THE FORM OF SMALL EVOLUTIONARY CHANGES IN PRODUCTION METHODS AND MATERIALS, AND OCCASIONALLY AS A STEPWISE CHANGE DUE TO USE OF A NEW BASIC MATERIAL. THE PRESENT SOLICITATION TOPIC SEEKS A NEW APPROACH THAT WILL PRODUCE ANOTHER STEP IMPROVEMENT, OR HOPEFULLY, EVEN A QUANTUM JUMP IN PERFORMANCE. THE ENCLOSED PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR BATTERIES THAT OFFERS A FULL QUANTUM LEAP IN PERFORMANCE. FEASIBILITY HAS BEEN SHOWN FOR THIS BATTERY AT WH/#, OVER 10,000 W/#, 13 WH/CU. IN., AND SHORT-TERM OR INTERMITTENT DISCHARGE AT EXTREMES OF TEMPERATURE. IT IS A SECONDARY BATTERY, BELIEVED TO BE CAPABLE OF BEING STORED FULLY CHARGED, OR OF BEING INTERMITTENTLY OR FULLY DISCHARGED, OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. IT IS PROPOSED HERE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT LONG STORAGE OR DISCHARGE PERIODS ARE INDEED FEASIBLE WITH THIS NEW BATTERY.
