Abstract
CAMX Power is proposing field demonstration of a new, ultra-high sensitivity cell screening technology that would reduce a 14-28 day cell monitoring operation in present lithium-ion manufacturing practice to about ten minutes, with cost savings, safety and logistics benefits. EaglePicher and Inventus Power, key suppliers of batteries to the US Military, have each agreed to serve as our collaborative partners in our field demonstrations, and letters of support detailing their interest are attached to this Proposal. The CAMX technology has two broad cell screening applications, with major time and cost savings benefits in each, while preserving or enhancing safety. The first application involves shortening time for cell screening and aging during cell fabrication, and the second application involves time reduction for cell screening prior to pack assembly.
