Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will construct and deliver a full-scale prototype â€œon-demandâ€Â high power battery that delivers the targeted specific energy (>100 Wh/kg) at the targeted specific power (>2000 W/kg) while meeting all mass and form factor requirements.. This battery will be constructed by combining PSIâ€™s non-flammable electrolyte and high active (HA) coating technologies. During the Phase II, PSI will scale up the production of electrodes and electrolyte in order to construct the targeted number of batteries. The Phase II efforts will build upon the Phase I efforts by evaluating the effect of extended periods in the inert state and building successively larger test cells and batteries. Discharge rate performance in large cells will be evaluated to ensure that the PSI cell design is suitable for the targeted application. Phase III activities are anticipated to focus on the qualification and initial low rate production for the targeted initial application.
