Abstract
Battery power is rapidly becoming a major factor in military planning because of the growing power-consuming hi-tech system carried by the soldier on the battlefield. Unless new high-energy power source is developed, they will create a logistics and tactical burden for the soldier. EIC proposes to develop a safe and flexible rechargeable Li-ion battery with specific energy and energy density of respectively >200 Wh/kg and 490 Wh/l. Unlike conventional prismatic battery that uses hermetic metal cans, our proposed flat film battery will be packaged in thin, light, and flexible laminated packet. The flexibility of the cell will allow it to conform to the body contour of soldiers and to be integrated into the Scorpion/Objective Force Warrior chassis. EIC will be working with Compact Power Incorporated (CPI) to develop working conformal Li-ion rechargeable battery prototypes at the end of the Phase I program.
