Abstract
THE USE OF BIPOLAR NI/H2 BATTERIES FOR THE EVER MORE DEMANDING SPACE APPLICATIONS IS LIMITED BY THE WEIGHT, INTEGRITY, CYCLE LIFE AND MANUFACTURABILITY OF THE POSITIVE NICKEL ELECTRODE. IN PHASE I, THIS ACTIVITY INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A NUMBER OF NOVEL CONCEPTS TO FABRICATE ADVANCED SINTERED NICKEL ELECTRODES WHICH ARE INTEGRATED WITH A BIPOLAR PLATE AND A NEGATIVE (HYDROGEN) ELECTRODE TO FORM A UNITIZED ELECTRODE ASSEMBLY. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT A LIGHTWEIGHT AND LONG LIFETIME ELECTRODE STRUCTURE CAN BE DEVELOPED. FURTHERMORE, THE APPROACH MAY ALLOW THE REPRODUCIBLE FABRICATION OF LARGE ELECTRODE ASSEMBLIES IN A CONTINUOUS MODE.
