Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A BATTERY THAT CAN MEET THE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL ONBOARD POWER FOR MISILE APPLICATIONS. THESE REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE A SHELF LIFE OF UPTO 25 YEARS, OPERATION FROM -54 TO +74 DEG C, ATTAINING FULL POWER IN LESS THAN ONE SECOND, AND EXHIBITING MODERATELY HIGH POWER DENSITIES. ELECTRO-CHEM PROPOSES THE UNIQUE AND HIGH PAYOFF CONCEPT OF A HYDROGEN/FLUORINE BATTERY. BY DESIGN, THIS SYSTEM WILL BE CAPABLE OF INDEFINITE STORAGE YET ALSO CAPABLE OF QUICK STARTUP UNDER ANY CONDITION. IN PHASE I, THE PROPOSED CONCEPT WILL BE DEMONSTRATED THROUGH THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF A LABORATORY TEST CELL.
