Abstract
The U.S. Army has identified a need for improved soldier and device mobility. To address these needs, ADA Technologies Inc. (ADA) will develop and commercialize our high energy density, long cycle life and safe lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery technology. Our solution is based on proven material design strategies that will improve cell constituent stability via the use of atomic level coatings on the electrode/active materials and/or separator, and an enabling electrolyte. ADA materials are designed to encapsulate polysulfides and/or impede polysulfide migration, while providing a high level of ionic and electronic conductivity and preventing lithium dendrite formation for battery safety. Efforts are planned for battery fabrication and evaluation using cells of increasing complexity and size/format, to meet Army performance metrics/goals. ADA offers relevant partnerships with technical development collaborators and domestic battery manufacturers, and a strong technology commercialization history of success. A successful program will position ADA to meet the needs of Army Project Manager Soldier Warrior programs of record.
